Religion’s Revenge on Park City

R

You probably know that KPCW, Park City’s  local radio station, recently changed frequencies from 91.9 to 91.7. What you may not know is what happens when you leave “heathen” Park City with your station set at 91.7. If you head to SLC with your dial set at 91.7, once you near the bottom of the canyon, you just may hear: “So repeat after me: If I...

Transit Center or Transient Center

T

If you frequent Kimball Junction, you may have noticed an increase in the number of panhandlers. Particularly interesting is the mom that sits on the way out of Smith’s parking lot with her three kids. Perhaps it’s just the summer, but it also seems the number of hitchhikers is up too. There’s a different feel to what’s going on in KJ, this year. I may be callous, but ever...

What Will Skullcandy Sale Mean for Park City and the Boyer Tech Park?

W

During the past few weeks, ground broke for the first building built specifically for a tech company in the Boyer Tech Park . Wouldn’t you know, yesterday that tech company was sold. The Verge is reporting that Skullcandy, a Park City based technology company, was purchased by Incipio for $177 million. Incipio is best known as a maker of iPhone cases. The good news for Skullcandy fans is...

Is this stuff for real?

I

So, in Jeremy Ranch, we are experiencing more coyotes than I can remember. By experiencing I mean, seeing them around the open space, hearing them at night, reading about attacks, etc. My neighbor even saw one hanging out on my lawn one evening. That said, this is their land, and they are doing their own thing. I hate to hear about pets being attacked (and hope mine never becomes a victim), and I...

We received an email saying: “Jesus Fucking Christmas, will someone please post the anti-Vail petition URL?” Sure. Here it is.

What BREXIT Can Teach us About Clichés in Park City

W

If you haven’t heard (or paid attention to) the fact that Britain is leaving the EU, I would suggest you check out your Schwab Retirement Account. So, the citizens of Great Britain have decided to leave the European Union after 40 years. That’s their own personal decision, and I don’t have a lot to say on that, since it’s their business. However, it appears many American...

We are now the “Sign Nazis”

W

Last night we talked about political signs and the need to have them taken down (when they are in violation of the law). Today we filed our first formal complaint against political signs. It’s actually quite easy thanks to Summit County’s great reporting tool. So, yes, you too can join us in our witch hunt against illegal election signs. Frankly, it’s something we really wish we...

Election Sign Violations

E

During the last election, we wrote about election signs that violated Summit County and Park City laws. It is illegal to put election signs in the “public right of way.” This basically means most signs you see along the side of the road violate election law. In the case of past election cycles, we really only reported on the egregious acts. For instance, there was one candidate who...

School Board Appears to Be Taking Nursing Issue Seriously

S

A few weeks ago we asked the question of whether the Park City School District was on the wrong side of history related to its handling of full time nurses at schools. We pointed out that the district was found to be violating student civil rights by the US Department of Education because children with Type 1 Diabetes were treated differently from other students. We pointed out that children have...

Car, Train, or E-Bike?

C

It’s the monumental challenge. Which gets you from point A to B faster: A car, a train, or an E-Bike? The Hollywood Reporter took on such a challenge. Three of their writers decided to test which way was fastest in light of a new Metro line to Santa Monica being added to their system. Three riders, one in a car, another on train, and another on E-Bike started at a Starbucks in Downtown LA...
