    He was arguably the first and most prominent face of the Utah Jazz when they first arrived in Salt Lake City in 1981.

    Frank Layden was the boisterous, often hilarious head coach who worked his way into the hearts of the fans, and most importantly, his players.

    Now at age 88, he's enjoying the fruits of all that hard work and affection.

    John Dehlin

    It has been five years since "Mormon Stories" podcast host John Dehlin was excommunicated from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

    It was a very difficult episode for him and his family, who also either left the church or are no longer active.

    The podcast began 15 years ago and has become a place where Latter-day Saints having a faith crisis can go for support and understanding.

    Now it has sparked a community of both former and current believers who look to Dehlin for camaraderie.

    Amos Guiora

    In recent months, tensions between the U.S. and Iran have intensified — with the shooting down of a U.S. drone, the killing of a U.S. contractor, the attack on the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad, and the killing of Iranian General Qasem Soleimani.

    There is fear Iran is developing a nuclear weapon, despite economic sanctions.

    Amos Guiora is a University of Utah law professor who played a key role in the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, served in the Israel Defense Forces, and is a counter-terrorism expert who lives much of the time in the Middle East.

    Lee Perry

    Lee Perry

    Passing legislation during the day, and stopping speeders and criminals at night. Lee Perry of the Utah House of Representatives has spent the past nine years juggling both responsibilities. As a Lieutenant with the Utah Highway Patrol, he was in the unique position of writing Utah law, and enforcing it too.

    Now, after a 31 year career in law enforcement, his retirement is bittersweet. Being a Utah Highway Patrol Trooper has been his dream job. But calmer waters are calling him.

    Bob Evans with FOX 13 News in Salt Lake City sat down with this outspoken lawman/politician in January of 2020 for a 3 Questions interview.




    Citizen Legislatures in the United States are made up of everyday, ordinary people, who come from a wide variety of professions.

    Michelle Kaufusi

    Michelle Kaufusi

    Provo, Utah Mayor Michelle Kaufusi has a reputation of being warm and friend, but very tough. And she’s had to be. Her husband Steve Kaufusi played for the Philadelphia Eagles and is the former Defensive Line Coach for BYU. Sons Bronson and Corbin play for the New York Jets. And Devin is a Defensive Lineman for BYU. Daughters Daryl and Alexis were active in high school sports.

    Now Mayor Kaufusi is using many of the same skills used to build successful professional athletes to run the city of Provo, Utah.

    When Michelle Kaufusi was elected the first female Mayor of Provo, political advisers told her it would be political suicide to propose a $69 million bond her first year in office. But after seeing the decaying and grossly overcrowded police and fire facilities at City Hall, she made the very difficult decision to put the bond issue to the voters. It passed by a narrow margin.

    And now after almost two years in office, with the new City Hall under way, she has taken on the massive project of building a new and expanded Provo airport.

    Mayor Kaufusi doesn’t consider herself a politician, and you’ll hear why. But she does like to move fast.

    Bob Evans with FOX 13 News in Salt Lake City sat down with her in December of 2019 for a 3 Questions interview.

    Ed Smart

    Ed Smart

    His daughter and family have been through indescribable trauma. Ed Smart’s daughter Elizabeth was kidnapped by Brian David Mitchell and Wanda Barzee in June of 2002. Her miraculous safe return happened after nine torturous months of search, praying, and hoping.

    Since then, Ed and Elizabeth have become outspoken advocates for missing and exploited children with the Elizabeth Smart Foundation.

    But under the turmoil of this whole experience and aftermath, lay a deep anxiety the Ed had carried since he was 12 years old. After decades of marriage, six children, and life as an active Latter-day Saint (Mormon), Ed could no longer maintain what for him was a grotesque façade. 

    After a crisis in faith, Ed finally admitted to his wife Lois of 33 years, that he is gay. And bombshell after bombshell, he informed each of his children, the Smart’s close friends, and finally the public.

    Bob Evans with FOX 13 News in Salt Lake City sat down with Ed Smart in December of 2019 for a 3 Questions interview.
