The Park Record editorial, December 14-16, 2011 - The Par...

the real problem is that there are NO good answers and NO good outcomes ... and however much anyone may wish it were possible to re-wind and do it over again, reality precludes that ... Without considering whether the sentencing is in any way appropriste and/or what alternatives should maybe have been considered, the bottom-line truth of the matter is that this unspeakable tragedy has had little or no apparent effect on the use of electronic devices by drivers everywhere ... and THAT is the greatest tragedy of all ...  (Dec 14, 2011 | post #6)

Park City has long been one of my favorite places in the whole country ... even after a really petty jerk took the trouble to pick a cigar butt out of the gutter and put in through the slightly-open passenger door window of my car on a hot summer's day a while back ... one wonders if it's the same petty jerk who's taking the trouble to report an idling vehicle in town ... stupidity, it seems, knows no boundries ...  (Nov 19, 2011 | post #4)

Budweiser has cool horses, but their 'beer' is over-priced swill ... Not sure PBR is any better, but at least Miller Lite is actually light ... for those worried about the caloric value of the product, it's far and away the best choice ...  (Nov 9, 2011 | post #3)

Egyptian Theatre rises out of debt - The Park Record

Guest editorial, Sept. 21, 2011 - The Park Record

oddly enough, I was in solid agreement with you until you began to spout this irrelevant babble ... were I relying on your comments to form a judgement on the topic of the ludicrous concept of hiding the method of liquor dispensing, I'd probably decide the religiouslators of Utah had a good idea ... frankly, I don't understand your compulsion to take a jab at those of us who have socially liberal, but fiscally sensible political views ... The problem in Utah is NOT (let me repeat that ... NOT) one of political party, but one of a dominant religion seeking to impose itself on the population, whether or not those citizens subscribe to that religion ... don't be so easily confused by the fact that many of those religiouslators are political conservatives ... even if the state legislature were to be dominated by Democrats, it would still be dominated by Mormons and they would still ride roughshod over the interests of the non-Mormon population.  (Sep 23, 2011 | post #7)

glad I'm not headed west on 248 going from Peoa toward Park City this weekend as I was just a few days ago ... my guess is that there will be a great deal of eastbound traffic in the westbound lane wanting to pass the car(s) immediately in front of them ... what a nightmare that would present to a westbound driver !!  (Sep 10, 2011 | post #1)

Eateries scratch heads over hiding beer - The Park Record

a sad commentary on the state of life in Utah ... I'm not much of a drinker, so this law has virtually no impact on me personally, but I find the perceived attitude of those with political and social power in Utah to be offensive to the point that I would deliberately order a drink or a beer (which I would almost certainly never do otherwise) just to fly in the face of those incredibly cretinous legislators who mandated this ridiculous policy.  (Sep 10, 2011 | post #17)

Park City teachers eye controversy in Ogden School Distri...

================== ================== ================== = "First off, the performance pay is enormously expensive. With performance pay you can have all sorts of strong teachers making significant amounts of money," ================== ================== ================== = So, the president of the PCEA is telling us that poor teachers are a good thing because they mitigate costs ... wow, talk about convoluted logic ... I know I speak only for myself here, but am willing to bet the majority of citizens agree, I would be willing to pay more for schools IF, in fact, the quality of teachers in the system really were higher ... if the nitwits among them could be weeded out rather than pretend they're all wonderful teachers, yes it would cost more to have quality teachers ... but the results would be worth it ... hey, in the last couple of years, a very high quality hospital has opened in PC with a very high quality staff ... why not follow that model with the schools ??  (Jul 13, 2011 | post #1)

if there is any ray of sunshine to be found in this story, at least the hospital is a very good one ...
