Give the Ecker Hill Park and Ride a shot. It may make your ski day even better.


Those of you who follow the Park Rag know I can be skeptical of our bus system. I don’t think we, as a community, are people who embrace the bus. Yet, if the bus experience is better than a car, you may be tempted to try it. That is what I hope you’ll find when going skiing with the Ecker Hill Park & Ride and the 6 Lime Bus. Let me start by asking a question. If you live in...

To those of you skiing, I salute you


For those of you who could sneak out of work and capture some Utah Powder, I am jealous. I hope it was awesome.
Every time I look from my office window and see the snow going sideways, I think of this magnificent winter song by Matt Pond PA.


What Park City needs is a little patience


It’s funny how 18 inches of snow can destroy a community — especially a mountain community. People are pissed. Why aren’t our roads plowed better? Why is traffic so bad? Why wasn’t school closed? Why am I the only one who can drive? Where did the idiots come from? Where are the snow plows? I get it. I could barely snow blow my driveway this morning (the most...

Thanks for the support


A few days ago my wife and I were discussing the election. She turned to me and said, “It could have been worse. You could have got fewer write-in votes than Grizzley the Philadephia Flyers Mascot.” For those unaware, I ran for Summit County Council as a write-in candidate. In the end, I received 1,159 write-in votes — which exceeded my wildest expectations. Unfortunately, with...

Top 10 Suggestions for Homestead Road


Homestead Road construction between Pinebrook and Jeremy Ranch is a disaster. While we usually don’t like to tell people what to do, it seems the contractors doing this work may have never done road construction before. So, we thought we’d offer some advice: Don’t begin construction at 8:00 AM, when everyone is going to school. Don’t block off the main road out of Jeremy...

I’ve launched the Bull Moose Newsletter to help keep people up to date on what has happened and what is coming up in Summit County


As many of you know, I am running a write-in campaign for Summit County Council. I want to show the type of information that the County Council should be providing. Therefore I have created the inaugural Bull Moose Newsletter. It’s not as good and detailed as I will eventually make it… but you have to start somewhere. Each week I’ll be providing an overview of what has happened...

Kilby-Gate isn’t going away and it highlights communication issues


We don’t have too many dramas in Summit County and the Snyderville Basin. However, changes to Kilby Road, which runs in front of Pinebrook to the Whole Foods is shaping up to be a doozy. Therefore we’ve decided to call this issue Kilby-Gate. For those who haven’t been following the story, Summit County wanted to put in a Park and Ride across from Ecker Hill Middle School. Residents were worried...

I’m running for Summit County Council. Let’s work together to make a better Summit County!


I’m excited to formally announce that I am running an unaffiliated write-in bid for Summit County Council Seat E. The tipping point for running was that there are seven positions up for election in Summit County and all races are unopposed. That’s not how it should be. Elections are a time when we should be debating ideas. We should be talking about how things are going and what we...

It’s strange Park City would hire someone for a top level position with an uncertain past


KPCW is reporting that Park City’s new Transit System’s Manager, Barbara Murdock, was let go from her last position for allegedly using company funds inappropriately. Ms. Murdoch has, in turn, sued her former employer (Birmingham-Jefferson County Transit Authority) stating gender discrimination and they didn’t communicate reasons for her termination. What we don’t...
