Park City assistant city attorney arrested on felony charges

P

Fox 13 in Salt Lake is reporting that Park City Assistant City Attorney Polly Samuels McLean was arrested on September 6. She allegedly damaged more than $1,500 in hunting equipment and caused more than $500 in additional damages according to the report. She is facing felony theft charges, as well a misdemeanor criminal mischief charges. The story says that after multiple cases of hunting...

Treasure deal must be SIMPLE

T

I was reading another Park Record article on the Treasure purchase. Each time I get more confused. What exactly is it that Parkites (I mean the 84060 variety) will be voting on and paying for? Are you buying all the Treasure land ? Most of it? Some of it? Will you get all the rights to development (and thus extinguish them)? Are you paying $64 million to enable a transfer of density, where a...

Do you trust Summit County and Park City with your information?

D

A friend of mine recently received a survey about the Summit Bike Share program. The survey ask questions like whether you ride a bike more after using the bike share, what changes you would make, and how you would rate features. I was about to write a scathing email about the use of Survey Monkey. It’s my belief that FEW serious organizations use Survey Monkey to make any decisions. That’s...

Park City and the Basin seem crowded

P

Out of the mouths of babes…. Tonight I was riding on my bike with my five and three year old sons to get pizza in Kimball Junction. All of sudden, out of nowhere, my 5 year old says “wow, this place is crowded.” Yep it felt crowded. For so long we, as a community, have said that the Park City area has horrible traffic. Our leaders have tried to solve that by fixing...

Park City’s Main Street is Becoming Just an Outdoor Shopping Mall

P

The Park Record has a way of clarifying what’s really happening around us. This week, they did that again. Our local paper reported that LL Bean will open a store in the former Kimball Art Center Building. One could ask the question of whether Parkites would prefer the art center in that location, even if it was a 40 foot tall log cabin, or whether we’d prefer LL...

Every time we hear the term “Bonanza Flats” it makes us cringe

E

If someone wrote “I live in Park Citie,” would you care? Would it influence your opinion of him. Does it matter if he doesn’t spell city correctly? If your government did the same thing, would it influence your opinion of them? How about your local newspaper? Do they have to get it right? As many people are aware, Park City Municipal has inked a deal to purchase Bonanza Flats...

We Parkites should stop freaking out about Trump and concentrate on our real issues

W

Can Park City stop freaking out about the election of Donald Trump yet? We hope so. From schools saying they are going to enforce bullying (we thought they already did that), to worries about whether snow will continue to fall during a Trump presidency, to the Sheriff’s Department saying they “won’t participate in any sort of roundup” of undocumented immigrants…...

What do you say when questioned about Park City?

W

So, you are in an airport in St Louis and someone asks you whether they should visit Park City, what do you say? A) Yes, it’s a great place to visit, with nice people, great skiing, and is even better in the summer. B) No, uhhh… you wouldn’t like it. There are few evergreens like you might get in Colorado. The liquor laws make it really confusing (and people will make fun of...

Park City drug issues are not new and may cost you everything

P

Days before my 16th birthday, my next door neighbor committed suicide. He drove out to a lake, wrote his parents a letter, and pulled the trigger on a shotgun. In the aftermath, and for a VERY SHORT while, people tried to explain it, but they never really understood. They missed the point and ignored the broader picture. I somewhat feel the same with recent coverage of the teenage overdoses in...
