At 87, eco-legend Ken Sleight of Ed Abbey fame is still fighting Lake Powell — but knows it’s a losing battle 20.6.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Moab • Ensconced at the base of the La Sal Mountains, 15 miles south of Utah’s redrock capital, storied environmentalist Ken Sleight looks out over the landscape of a rich life. Immortalized as Seldom Seen Smith by Edward Abbey in his 1975 anarchist primer “The Monkey Wrench Gang,” Sleight, now 87, ponders the past and future of his beloved Colorado Plateau. He moves a little slower these days and has just undergone surgery to remove cancerous skin cells from his nose. But Sleight’s insights are... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Golf: Justin Thomas ties U.S. Open record by shooting 63, and sits in group one shot behind leader Brian Harman 18.6.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Erin, Wis. • Justin Thomas landed a 3-wood on the 18th green where some players couldn’t land a wedge, leaving him an 8-foot eagle putt that he calmly made for a 9-under 63 that matched one U.S. Open record and broke another. It also put him squarely in the mix to capture his first major. On an Erin Hills course that again lacked enough wind to be the stern test that the U.S. Open wants, Brian Harman weaved his way through traffic at the top of the leaderboard Saturday for a 5-under 67 and a one...

Utahns turn art into activism: ‘When we dance, we can’t help but feel part of nature’ 16.6.2017 Salt Lake Tribune

Golf: Shortest hole at longest US Open course could bring trouble 15.6.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Erin, Wis. • One of the many quirks at Erin Hills is what was originally called the Bye Hole — a devilish, downhill par-3 positioned between the old ninth and No. 10. It was initially built to be just for fun and wasn’t supposed to count on the official scorecard. By the end of the U.S. Open, a lot of these players might wish the course architects had kept it that way. The old ninth hole is now No. 8, and the Bye Hole is now No. 9. The 135-yard par-3 is what the makers of Erin Hills consider the...

Golf: McIlroy returning from another injury at Wisconsin major 14.6.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Erin, Wis. • The storms moved in overnight and kept pounding Erin Hills through the morning, closing the course for some three hours with just two practice days remaining before the U.S. Open. No one was happier than Rory McIlroy. “I wasn’t crying when I saw that rain last night and this morning,” he said Tuesday. “It’s a long golf course, and it’s only going to play longer. That benefits a few guys, and luckily, I’m one of them.” There’s more to it than just length. McIlroy won the first of his...

NBA: Warriors’ Draymond Green will be on the court for this Finals Game 5 12.6.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Oakland, Calif. • A year ago for Game 5 of the NBA Finals, Golden State general manager Bob Myers sat alongside suspended forward Draymond Green next-door to Oracle Arena in a suite at the Oakland Athletics game. Myers told Green: Let’s not do this again. On Monday night, the Warriors will try again to close out their second championship in three years with the fiery Green on the court to start Game 5 this time.

Colorado man dies on kayaking trip in Dinosaur National Monument 12.6.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
A Colorado man died from suspected cardiac arrest Saturday while kayaking the Green River in Dinosaur National Monument. About 3 p.m. Saturday, monument staff were notified that a two-person inflatable kayak carrying the 60-year-old man had flipped in Winnie’s Rapid in the Canyon of Lodore, according to a release from the National Park Service.

Draymond being Draymond: Warriors’ Green embraces role of NBA Finals heel 11.6.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Cleveland • The Golden State Warriors’ chance to make history slipped through their fingers Friday night. Rather than completing a perfect 16-0 postseason and winning a second NBA title in three years, the Warriors instead saw the Cleveland Cavaliers shoot the lights out in Game 4 of the NBA Finals, winning 137-116 to send the series back to Oakland for Game 5 on Monday night. It would’ve been understandable if such circumstances would’ve left Warriors star Draymond Green in a foul mood afterwar...

NBA Finals: Warriors’ Draymond Green avoids ejection amid technical-foul fiasco 10.6.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Cleveland • Another eventful Game 4 of the NBA Finals for Draymond Green — even after it appeared he’d been ejected in this one. Green was allowed to stay in the game Friday night after officials said the first of two technical fouls charged to him had actually been called on coach Steve Kerr. Green finished with 16 points and 14 rebounds in the Warriors’ 137-116 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers that cut their lead to 3-1. A year after his antics on this floor led to a suspension for Game 5 that ... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>
