Air Quality Talk
For all the speakers at Utah Foundation'sPractical Solutions to Utah's Air Quality Problems, it's interesting that the most outspoken critic is absent. You'll hear Dr. Kerry Kelly, associate professor of chemical engineering at the University of Utah and chair of Utah's Air Quality Board; Bryce Bird, executive director of the Utah Division of Air Quality; Jessica Reimer of HEAL Utah; and even Lee Peacock from the Utah Petroleum Association. But you won't hear from petroleum's harshest critic—Brian Moench of Utah Physicians for Healthy Environment.While you hear about what's being done, what you could do and the challenges ahead for breathing in Utah, you might ask the panel where Moench is in the debate. Disclaimer: This is, for now, a conspiracy theory.Zions Bank building, Founders Room, 18th Floor, 1 S. Main,801-355-1400, Tuesday, Feb. 20, 8-9:30 a.m., free,bit.ly/2EcEnth.

Campaign Lessons
Utahns seem to like Lt. Gov. Spencer Cox—maybe even more than the governor. Cox will be speaking about Lessons Learned on the Campaign Trailat the Emerging Leaders Initiative of Utah where you might get fired up enough to run for office yourself. If not, this and an expected panel of "elected millennial officials" should point you in the right direction. Good question: how many "elected millennial officials" are there in Utah? Cox himself began his political career at29 as a city councilman and was elected mayor at Fairview at30. Church & State,370 S. 300 East, 801-901-0459,Thursday, Feb. 22, 6-7:30 p.m.,bit.ly/2EvfcBy.

Assassination Then And Now
You won't want to miss author, journalist and commentator Burton Hersh as he speaks On the Assassination of JFK–in the Times of Trump. Go ahead and let your imagination run wild. Hersh is considered the primary biographer of Edward Kennedy and has written a lot about the Kennedys v. J. Edgar Hoover. Hersh acknowledges the conspiracy aspect, but in a blogpost says, "The CIA was clearly preparing the ground and setting (Lee Harvey) Oswald up." With that as a background, how could you not want to hear what he says about the current era?Hinckley Institute of Politics, 332 S. 1400 East, Building 17, Room 10, 801-581-850, Wednesday, Feb. 21, noon-1 p.m., free,bit.ly/2BRi3ni.
