LDS missionaries and mental health, Paltrow ski verdict and safer roads on ‘Behind the Headlines’

Salt Lake Tribune journalists join weekly news roundup.

(Rick Bowmer | AP | Pool) Gwyneth Paltrow testifies during her trial on March 24, 2023, in Park City. Paltrow's livestreamed trial over a 2016 collision at a Utah ski resort has drawn worldwide attention.

Mental health challenges for missionaries of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are rising and so is the faith’s response. A jury decides that Gwyneth Paltrow was not at fault for a Deer Valley ski crash. The trial shines light on the Wild West of ski law. And federal funds will soon be used to make Utah roads safer.

At 9 a.m. on Friday, Salt Lake Tribune reporters Peggy Fletcher Stack, Scott D. Pierce, Julie Jag and Sofia Jeremias, along with news columnist Robert Gehrke, join Utah Public Radio’s Tom Williams to talk about the week’s top stories.
