The Road Home is an organization that relies on the services of volunteers who help with programs and services targeting homeless families and individuals. The volunteers will help with the dinners, kids activities, and other scheduled programs. The Ronald McDonald is another incredible volunteering opportunity. It is a house that shelters parents and caregivers to children who have been hospitalized so that they can stay close to a sick child. This lifts a great burden from the shoulders of an ailing child’s parent as they do not have to think of the expense of accommodation.

Volunteering at the Primary Children’s Hospital will be very fulfilling seeing as it meets the needs of a very vulnerable population in our society. The Primary Children’s Hospital is committed providing the highest quality of medical care to the children under its care. The facility cares for children of all ages, backgrounds, and ethnicities while the volunteers are drawn from a broad spectrum of society.

Your volunteer work can also be in the events and races that are synonymous with Salt Lake City.

TORONTO (AP) — Kawhi Leonard had 27 points and 17 rebounds to lead the Toronto Raptors into the NBA Finals for the first time with a 100-94 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday night.

The Raptors overcame a 15-point deficit to win the series in six games and will host the Golden State Warriors in Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Thursday night.

It will be the two-time defending champions against a Raptors team that will finally bring the NBA Finals outside the U.S. after entering the league in 1995.

Pascal Siakam scored 18 points, Kyle Lowry had 17 and Fred VanVleet 14 for the Raptors, who used a 26-3 run late in the third quarter and early in the fourth to turn the game in their favor.

Lowry held the game ball and picked up his children after the game, finally getting to the championship round after the Raptors kept falling short against Cleveland.

They needed something more to get further and they found it the acquisition of Leonard, the 2014 NBA Finals MVP who was acquired from San Antonio and carried the Raptors in this postseason.

“He’s the best player in the league and we’re happy he’s in Toronto,” Raptors President Masai Ujiri said.

Giannis Antetokounmpo had 21 points and 11 rebounds for the Bucks, but the NBA’s top team in the regular season saw its bid for a first finals berth in 45 years come to a disappointing end with a fourth consecutive defeat.

Down 76-71 to start the fourth, the Raptors tied it with an 8-2 run while Leonard and Antetokounmpo were both on the bench. Ibaka’s dunk with 10:32 to go tied it at 78.

Antetokounmpo returned after a timeout, but Leonard kept sitting. That didn’t matter to Toronto, with Siakam’s basket giving the Raptors an 80-78 lead, their first lead since it was 6-3.

Leonard’s one-handed slam after Lowry’s steal gave Toronto an 87-79 lead with 6:46 to go before the Bucks responded. George Hill answered with a layup, Brook Lopez converted a three-point play and Antetokounmpo scored to cut it to 87-86 with 5:19 to go.

Lowry and Lopez swapped baskets before Gasol’s 3 put the Raptors up 92-88 with 3:50 left. After another basket by Lopez, Leonard made a 3 to push Toronto’s lead to 95-90 with 3:04 to play. It was Leonard’s first 3 after missing his first seven attempts of the game.

Toronto made 12 of 27 3-point attempts, including four of eight in the fourth quarter.

Siakam, who missed a pair of free throws late in the fourth quarter of Toronto’s double-overtime win in Game 3, hit one to make it 98-94. Leonard grabbed the rebound on the second and was fouled. He made both, putting the Raptors up 100-94 with 3.9 seconds to go.

Brogdon and Middleton each made a pair from long range as the Bucks shot 6 for 9 from 3-point range in the first and closed the quarter with 10 unanswered points to lead 31-18. Toronto shot 6 for 19 in the opening quarter, missing six straight twice in the first 12 minutes.

The Bucks extended their lead to 38-23 on a 3 by Ersan Ilyasova with 7:46 left until half. Toronto cut the gap to 46-43 on a 3 by VanVleet with 1:07 left in the second, but Eric Bledsoe answered with a 3 and Antetokounmpo split a pair at the line, giving the Bucks a 50-43 advantage at the intermission.

The lead went back to 15 in the third before Leonard finished the period with a flourish. He had eight points in the final 2:01 and Toronto closed with a 10-0 run, cutting a 15-point deficit to 76-71.

TIP-INS

Bucks: Milwaukee shot 4 for 16 in the second but three of its made baskets were 3-pointers. … The Bucks had six points in the paint in the first half. … Coach Mike Budenholzer was called for a technical foul on Milwaukee’s first possession of the second half. Leonard missed the free throw. … Antetokounmpo shot 5 for 10 at the free throw line.

Raptors: Danny Green, who missed all three of his field goal attempts in 16 minutes in Game 5, had another rough night. Green shot 0 for 4 in 14 minutes. … Leonard’s 17 rebounds were his most in any game this postseason. … Lowry had eight assists.

DRAKE WATCH

Raptors fan and ‘global ambassador’ Drake sat in his regular seat adjacent to the Toronto bench. The rapper wore a black hoodie with ‘KAWHI ME A RIVER’ printed on the back.

UP NEXT

The NBA Finals comes to Canada for the first time when the Raptors host the Warriors on Thursday night. Toronto swept Golden State in the regular season.

SANDY — It took almost six full games, but Utah Royals FC has finally scored more than one goal in a contest.

Better yet, URFC picked up another win on Saturday night.

Makenzy Doniak’s breakaway in the 89th minute at Rio Tinto Stadium sealed the deal as URFC topped the Orlando Pride 2-0 to move back atop the National Women’s Soccer League table, at least for the night.

“It’s so nice to have that comfort goal, a little bit of a cushion instead of kind of a frantic, crazy last 5-10 minutes,” said Amy Rodriguez, who scored the first goal of the night and her fourth of the season on a penalty kick in the 31st minute. “We were able to get that second goal, and it feels so good to come away with the win today.”

“It’s honestly indescribable. Just the work to get here, it’s really hard, so it meant a lot to me. I’m really happy. I feel good. I feel proud of the team. Just good spirits.”

Utah Royals FC’s Makenzy Doniak, on scoring her first goal since 2016

On a night when URFC created plenty of chances against a Pride team that has given up by far the most goals in the NWSL thus far, the home side didn’t find the net in the run of play until getting a free kick on a foul by Orlando’s Carson Pickett.

URFC’s Lo’eau LaBonta played the free kick quickly, and she and Doniak made eye contact. The Pride were out of position, Doniak broke free and nutmegged Pride goalkeeper Haley Kopmeyer.

“I think just the attacking nature out of me came out and I’m really happy I was able to finish it,” said Doniak, who missed all of last season with a torn ACL and scored her first goal since 2016.

Immediately after the goal, Doniak raised up her arms and started to tear up as her teammates came to embrace her.

“It’s honestly indescribable,” Doniak said. “Just the work to get here, it’s really hard, so it meant a lot to me. I’m really happy. I feel good. I feel proud of the team. Just good spirits.”

While URFC finally broke through for a second goal, head coach Laura Harvey acknowledged it wasn’t her team’s best night. Nevertheless, she was pleased with the fight her team showed as it moved to 4-1-1 on the season.

URFC is the first team in the NWSL to reach the four-win mark.

“I felt that we created enough chances for it to be at least two (goals), but I think that today’s a game where I don’t think it was our best performance by a long stretch, but I think that we showed some grit and character, which we’d asked for of the players all week,” Harvey said.

Getting the second goal was certainly the big story of the night, but the URFC defense once again was excellent even though it is now without both primary center backs, as Becky Sauerbrunn and Rachel Corsie are now gone with their respective national teams preparing for the World Cup (Saturday was outside back Katie Bowen’s last game before leaving for World Cup preparation).

Nicole Barnhart was her usual self in goal, and rookie Gaby Vincent fared well in her first career start in Corsie’s place as URFC got its fourth clean sheet of the season.

“We’re very proud of clean sheets, and once we scored the second, it was all about keeping that clean sheet,” Harvey said.

URFC got on the board in the first half when, in the 31st minute, Mandy Laddish sent a ball into the box. It ended up at Vero Boquete’s feet, but Boquete was undercut by Bridget Callahan, resulting in a penalty kick.

Rodriguez was called on to make the kick, and she buried it as Kopmeyer was frozen.

“I feel like I’ve been in this game a long time, and I understand that PK can be a pressure moment, but it’s OK,” Rodriguez said. “I feel like that’s what strikers are meant to handle and I knew where I wanted to go. I knew that I was confident in my shot and I just went up and took it.”

While Boquete’s play led to the goal, seven minutes later, she had to leave the contest because of a right quad injury. Harvey said it’s something Boquete had been nursing entering Saturday, but her status moving forward is unclear.

Next up for URFC is a June 1 road game against the Washington Spirit.

Police, FBI investigating disappearance of 5-year-old Utah girl; uncle in custody

Elizabeth Shelley
Logan Police Department

LOGAN — Local police agencies and the FBI planned to work through the night Saturday to investigate the disappearance of a 5-year-old girl who might have been with her uncle when she went missing.

Elizabeth Shelley was last seen at 2 a.m. on Saturday and was discovered missing from her home on Logan’s west side at about 10 a.m. Her 21-year-old uncle, Alex Whipple, who had been at the house that night, was also gone, according to police.

Police located Whipple on foot Saturday afternoon and took him into custody, according to Logan police post on Facebook. Logan Police Capt. Tyson Budge said Whipple is “not being that cooperative” and is considered a suspect in Elizabeth’s disappearance.

“The fortunate thing is we have all of the adults accounted for,” Budge said. “The obvious conclusion is that she’s in a lot of danger.”

Regarding the girl’s uncle, Budge said, “Right now we’re pretty focussed on Alex.”

According to the Facebook post from police Saturday night, “Officers are seeking additional search warrants and we are continuing to search for 5-year-old Elizabeth Shelley.”

“It is unknown what type of shirt she was wearing, but is believed at this point she was wearing either blue jeans or a teal colored plaid skirt. She is 3 feet 6 inches tall with shoulder length curly brown hair with choppy bangs and brown eyes,” Logan police wrote on Facebook.

Logan police, the Cache County Sheriff’s Office, Cache County Search and Rescue and FBI are involved in the investigation. Police suspended a volunteer search operating from Bear River Head Start on Saturday evening.

Police are asking residents in the area between 300 South to 100 North and 300 West to 600 West who have video surveillance, including smart doorbells, to check their videos and cameras for the hours of 2 a.m. to noon on Saturday.

“All of us are still hoping we’re going to find Elizabeth alive,” Budge said.

Anyone with information may call 435-753-7555.

Above average rain impacting Utah farmers

Farmers who raise animals, like cows and goats, are also feeling the impact of a wetter season because of the hay needed to feed those animals. It has been so wet this spring, farmers have had a difficult time cutting hay. “Our hay should’ve been cut a week ago. I walked out into our field today and it is just sopping wet from the top to the bottom,” Ron Gibson, who owns a farm in Weber County, said on Saturday, May 25, 2019.

LAYTON — For all its country-living appeal, no one ever said farming was easy.

At least, no one who has ever tried it.

“Yeah, we love what we do. But it is tough,” said Tyson Roberts, who owns Roberts Family Farms in Layton.

Utah has been so dry the past few seasons, farmers across the state were hoping for water this year.

However, all the snow and seemingly constant rain this season is proof there can be too much of a good thing.

“It’s either too much or too little water, but really, we’re at the mercy of mother nature, and that’s how agriculture is,” said Roberts.

Tyson Roberts, who owns Roberts Family Farms in Layton, checks on his sweet corn and other crops on Saturday, May 25, 2019.

Several different kinds of vegetables are grown at Roberts Family Farms, but right now, the sweet corn is normally about a foot high.

Saturday afternoon, the tallest crops may have been only 3-4 inches tall.

“It’s struggled being cold and wet. It’s hard to grow,” said Roberts. “It’ll probably produce a crop, but it’ll be a smaller cob. Less desirable at a farmers market.”

That’s a challenge when you rely on farmers markets for your livelihood.

“We make our income out of about 14 weeks out of the whole year, so we rely on a consistent harvest throughout the fall and if we can’t plant at the right times in the spring, then we’re not going to have a harvest throughout all the farmers markets,” said Roberts. “One bad week at a farmers market could mean the difference between making money and losing money that year.”

It’s not just crops that are affected.

Farmers who raise animals, like cows and goats, are also feeling the impact of a wetter season because of the hay needed to feed those animals.

It has been so wet this spring, farmers have had a difficult time cutting hay.

“Our hay should’ve been cut a week ago. I walked out into our field today and it is just sopping wet from the top to the bottom,” said Ron Gibson, who owns a farm in Weber County.

Gibson is also the president of the Utah Farm Bureau and says going from extremely dry last year, to all the rain and snow this year, has made it challenging for farmers to plan budgets and take out loans for equipment.

“We don’t know what the good or the bad are going to be. We’re always on an average when you talk to a banker, and things have been really tough in our industry over the last five years,” said Gibson.

Planting seeds has also been difficult this season. The rain has caused many fields to be full of mud.

“Basically, on my farm, I have until about the 10th of June to do everything,” said Gibson, talking about his corn and onion crops. “We’ve got very little of that done and I still have until the 10th of June. We’re compressed into this little box to get things done and that’s how a lot of farmers across the state feel.”

“We’re grateful for the water because it’s our lifeblood. We’ve got to have it. But, it’s a real challenge to get through right now.”

It’s not too late to catch up this season, and as farmers have said often, there’s always hope for a better season next year.

“They’ll make it. They might have a really tough year, but most farmers can make it through tough years,” said Roberts. “We’re a resilient bunch.”

Utah’s Kyler Dunkle staying close at NCAA golf; BYU has another rough day

File: Kyler Dunkle during the final round of the 2019 PAC12 golf championships at Eugene Country Club in Eugene, Oregon on April 24, 2019.
Eric Evans Photography

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Utah’s Kyler Dunkle had another solid under-par round at the NCAA Golf Championships Saturday, firing a 1-under-par 71, which puts him in a tie for fourth place at the halfway point of the tournament at the Blessings Golf Club in Fayetteville, Arkansas.

Dunkle, who is completing his senior season at Utah after transferring from Colorado State, stands at 4-under-par 71, two shots behind Austin Eckroat of Oklahoma State. He’s a shot behind first-day leader Collin Morikawa of Cal and Oklahoma State’s Matthew Wolff, who tied the course record with a 66 Saturday.

Dunkle started on the back nine and got off to a good start with a birdie at No. 10. He was hurt by a double-bogey 6 at No. 18, but came back with birdies on his next two holes before making bogey at No. 3. He followed with a birdie at 6, a bogey at 7 and another birdie at 8 to get under par for the day.

“Another awesome round” said Utah head coach Garrett Clegg. “He came back great from a very bad hole. After he made a double bogey on the 18th hole he birdied the next two holes. He is in great shape and has played two really good rounds of golf. Tomorrow will be another test and it will be fun to see how we do.”

Also tied with Dunkle is Stanford’s Isaiah Salinda and Auburn’s Jacob Solomon at 4-under 140. Dunkle will tee off at 8:02 a.m. MT Sunday and if he is one of the top nine individuals not on an advancing team, he will play in Monday’s final round.

In the team competition, BYU had its third straight poor round with a score of 307, the worst of the 30 teams in the tournament, and the Cougars stand in 30th place at 629. They’ll sit out Sunday and count their 309 score they posted Thursday when they played their “Sunday” round. Because only the top 15 teams make the cut for Monday’s final round, the Cougars are extremely unlikely to make it. Brock Stanger had the best round for BYU Saturday with a 74.

Former Utah Supreme Court Justice Ronald E. Nehring dies

Former Utah Supreme Court Justice Ronald E. Nehring died Friday, May 24, 2019.
Utah Administrative Office of the Courts

SALT LAKE CITY — Former Utah Supreme Court Justice Ronald E. Nehring died Friday from complications due to cancer at age 71.

Nehring served on the state’s high court from 2003 until his retirement in 2015.

“Ron was a judge’s judge,” said Utah Supreme Court Chief Justice Matthew Durrant. “He treated all who appeared before him, and all with whom he worked, with unwavering dignity and respect. He had a rock-solid commitment to justice. His opinions were always thoughtful and elegantly written. He was the kind of person, the kind of judge, we all should aspire to be.”

Nehring, a native of Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, graduated with a degree in history from Cornell University, where he earned All-America honors in track and field. He earned his law degree at the University of Utah.

Nehring began his professional career with Utah Legal Services and was a shareholder with the Salt Lake City firm of Prince, Yeates and Geldzahler as a 3rd District Court judge. He was serving as the presiding judge when Gov. Mike Leavitt appointed him to the Utah Supreme Court.

Associate Chief Justice Thomas Lee said Nehring touched the lives of many people for the better.

“Justice Nehring was a paragon of civility, professionalism, judgment and good humor. He was one of our best and brightest. He lived life to the fullest, from his early days an accomplished athlete to his time as one of our most effective judges, he said.

“His thoughtfulness, humor and constant reminder to ‘do justice,’ inspired me to want to be a better version of myself,” said Justice Deno Himonas.

SALT LAKE CITY — Like every other person who cheers for the Claret and Cobalt, Real Salt Lake owner Dell Loy Hansen was in a giddy mood as he left Rio Tinto Stadium on Friday night.

And who could possibly blame him?

Forward Jefferson Savarino’s last-second, game-winning strike — which gave RSL a thrilling 2-1 win over defending champion Atlanta United FC — ranks up there as one of the most exciting moments in franchise history.

Bofo Saucedo, who had the club’s other goal and a fun one in its own right, called Savarino’s rocket shot to the far side “an unbelievable goal.” Coach Mike Petke said it was “very exciting.” Midfielder Albert Rusnak believed the finish was “meant to be.”

“We’re still well away from the playoffs. If we continue to do the same things, I don’t have a doubt in us being top five or top three (in the MLS).”

RSL’s Bofo Saucedo

And Savarino?

He couldn’t help but flash a big ol’ grin while answering reporters’ questions in Spanish.

Hansen shared his good mood with reporters, poking his head into the postgame media interview session as Petke walked to the microphone and offering a suggestion.

“Ask him some really hard questions,” Hansen joked.

Before he continued down the hallway, the RSL owner added, “I just saw two complete games. I’m a really happy guy.”

The first complete game he referred to was Real’s 3-0 blowout of a good Toronto FC team at home the previous weekend. Throw in a gutsy 3-2 road win at Colorado on May 11, and there’s no wonder why ownership, management, players and fans are feeling good about the team’s direction.

“My owner’s here,” Petke said, “and I’m glad that he was here watching that, and the last two games he’s happy.”

RSL takes a season-best, three-game winning streak into Wednesday’s match at Montreal. This surge has helped the club improve to 6-6-1 while moving into the fifth spot in the Western Conference.




After Hansen left, Petke took the opportunity to thank the organization for its approach to team-building, which is completely different than a franchise like Atlanta and its bulging payroll. Where some teams fork over big bucks to fill their rosters, Real has combined a good mixture of strong international players with guys who’ve cut their teeth at the RSL Academy and minor-league Monarchs.

“I’ve talked before a long time ago about the setup in our organization, which I believe in and I like — a very pipeline, homegrown-type team,” Petke said. “We’re not going out and spending millions and millions on players, and I like that. I prefer that.

“But I think that gets lost a lot of times — that there still is development within the team. When you see games like today and last week and things are clicking and players are taking responsibility and players are playing aggressively, it’s what you want to see as a coach.”

Real has 12 players that it classifies as homegrown, including Saucedo, who’s from Park City. The 5-foot-7 spark plug has two goals and two assists this season.

“I’ve said it to the young guys since I’ve been here, ‘You’re going to earn your spot,’ and players ahead of them are also earning it,” Petke said. “Bofo is taking advantage of opportunities the last couple of weeks. He still has a long way to go. He’s known the last couple of weeks what kind of player he can be.”

Petke likes the versatility of his club, too. Because RSL plays three games in nine days, he mapped out lineups in which he’ll alter starters and sub rotations in an effort to keep players fresh.

“I would be very surprised if the next two lineups go exactly how we mapped it out, but they’re pretty dang close,” he said. “Some guys are coming back. Some guys are fresh. And now it’s going to be a puzzle over the next couple of days.”

RSL knows it needs to continue this momentum to achieve its ultimate goals.

“We’re still well away from the playoffs,” Saucedo said. “If we continue to do the same things, I don’t have a doubt in us being top five or top three (in the MLS).”
