We’ve installed a racism filter

W

One of the things we’ve tried to do at the Park Rag is provide a place where community members can voice their opinion. We do that through posting stories written by others and enabling comments on stories. Unfortunately some recent comments have become racist in nature. We’re frankly tired of reading them and we believe other readers are too. So, we’ve implemented a comment...

Washington Post Covers Sexist Comments By Wasatch County Republican James Green

W

You know you’ve either done something extraordinary or you’ve really screwed up when you’re not a national figure, live in a fly-over state, and you get coverage from the Washington Post.

A Park City woman’s place is in the home …

A

So I was watching Leave it to Beaver on TV Land and Ward was really upset that June didn’t have dinner on the table when he arrived home from work. How dare she not have dinner ready when he got home from work! Didn’t she know how hard he worked all day? Then I read a Park Record Editorial from the Wasatch GOP Vice-Chair, James Green,  that reminds me that we are apparently still...

As you probably know, Park City High, long considered one of the best schools in the state, fell out of the “US News Best Schools” rankings a few years back. According to US News, the best high school in the state is Skyline (near the base of Parley’s Canyon). There are a total of 26 Utah high schools that were given rankings 2016, including Wasatch High in Heber (ranked 21st)...

Please be careful with comments …

P

At the Park Rag we get a number of comments on stories we write. We appreciate that people care enough to take the time to read and comment. We’ve also made the decision to allow anonymous commenting. We believe this serves a valuable purpose in the community because some people are afraid to speak up when their name is associated with comments — because of ramifications (work...
