Q&A on Kilby Road Construction and Changes

Q

Tonight, Summit County held a public meeting to answer questions about Kilby Road changes. This includes the strange curves that run from the Pinebook Fresh Market to Ecker Hill Middle School. About 15 people showed up to ask questions of Derrick Radke, Summit County Public Works Director. A few people were quite militant. We felt for Mr Radke as a few of the people berated him, the county, every...

Have questions or concerns about Kilby Rd Construction? Come to the meeting.

H

Some people have called it the Crazy 8’s. Others are wondering how snow will ever be plowed. Still other are concerned that winter driving will be a nightmare. What are we talking about? The new road construction along Kilby Rd (in front of Ecker Hill down to Fresh Market). We’ve heard a lot of grumbling about the changes via social media, but Summit County is giving people a chance...

Damn the school tests

D

We’re gearing up for another school year. If the off season was any indicator, we’re headed for a doozey. The Park Record headline screams, “Under new school policy, high opt-out rates could sink Park City School District’s statewide grades.” The first paragraph goes even more dire: “The Park City School District in 2017 was given its first ‘F’ school grade from the state...

Basin Rec should have made a safer choice on the new field

B

Would you let your kid play on a pile of tires? Would you let your child go to birthday parties on a pile of tires? Would you let your kid compete in soccer on a pile of tires? No. No. AND probably No. Yet, Basin Rec is preparing to install another turf field made from recycled tires. KPCW is reporting that Basin Rec will be replacing the field house turf on Wednesday, July 25th. It will be...

Thank you Park City teachers for a great year

T

My oldest kid “graduated” Kindergarten today. Like many things in Park City, it was a little over the top. There was a scheduled performance with songs and many of the formalities you probably witnessed when you graduated high school. That said, my Kindergartener was broken up. He didn’t want to leave Mrs. Martin’s class at Jeremy Ranch. He was crying during the songs. He...

Want your very own e-bike to use around Park City?

W

There are few things I’ve purchased in the last few years I enjoy as much as my e-bike. I wouldn’t want to go without or take a step down to the ones rented by the City/County. In my opinion, it is the best way to beat the traffic and get around the Basin. If you’ve been thinking about taking the plunge, my wife is selling her black Pedego Interceptor. It’s been a great...

Doing the work in Park City…

D

I’m from Kansas. One of the stories I always remember is that Bruce Springsteen would come through Kansas City and his 1970’s concerts would go until midnight at Memorial Hall. It was real. It was epic. It was four hours of great music, which is unheard of in today’s age Springsteen put in the work necessary to make a great performance…. and obviously a memorable one. When we started the...

The Park Record is doing a disservice to our new High School Principal

T

We were excited to see that a new Principal was hired for Park City High School. As of August 2018, Roger Arbabi will become the new Principal at PCHS. What we gather from the Park Record article was that Mr Arbabi currently is an Administrator in the country of Colombia. He has 25 years teaching Science and Physics. He and his family have vacationed here for years. He is also fluent in English...

The Park Record’s site metering is an ugly distraction… but there is a work-around

T

As of Wednesday, the Park Record instituted “Site Metering.” This means that you can only look at three articles per month before the Park Record blocks you (unless you provide your email address to them). Frankly, if we were an advertiser, we would be upset. But we suppose that’s their business. That said, forcing users to provide an email for access doesn’t seem like a customer focused solution...
