Robots, agriculture and immigration policy30/03/2017 Duração: 02min

A Tale of Two Tooeles28/03/2017 Duração: 02min

Utah's San Juan County has had a lot of attention lately, over the creation of the Bear's Ears National Monument.

The Kickoff: Road to Understanding20/03/2017 Duração: 02min
Utahns and Americans lately have heard a lot of loud voices. Differences of opinion over all kinds of issues from politics to public lands to immigration to the economy.

With that in mind, KSL Newsradio, KSL television, and KSL.com are traveling the state to try to get some perspective. KSL Newsradio's Marc Giauque begins part one of our series...
