Letters to the Editor
I would like to commend the Main Street merchants for their commitment to our town’s children. Every year on Halloween they invite our Park City children to trick-or-treat in their stores. Their generosity creates an amazing community experience that we really cherish. (Not to mention the
fun we have laughing at the costumes kids’ and dogs’ alike!)
Critters need walkability too
What a swell party it was! Many members of the Park City Mountain Sports Club met with Wildlife Protection Society members and officers at the home of Tim and Jackie Fehr. The conversation and discussions were primarily educational, introducing the objectives and thrusts of the Wildlife Protection Society. Special emphasis was placed on the Critter Crossing Patrol, a large number of volunteers who record animal-vehicle collisions and animal sightings near major roads and streets, in an attempt to compile the data to better alert drivers to migration corridors in the Summit and Wasatch county areas. Some explanations were provided about the "Adopt an Animal Program," a fund-raising technique to purchase signs for UDOT to install at high vehicle-animal collision areas. More than fifty people gathered for the discussion, great food, and ample refreshments. The next major event for the Wildlife Protection Society will be in conjunction with Tommy Knockers’ 31st Annual Anniversary Party and Silent Auction. Tommy Knockers was gracious in designating the Wildlife Protection Society to benefit from the party. The event will be held on the 16th of November at the Redstone Store. For more information on the Wildlife Protection Society, contact the Society at wildlifeprotectionsociety.com or email@example.com.
A bunch of garbage
I have been a resident of Park City for over 7 years, and the situation with garbage seems to be getting much worse. The frontage roads on I-80, 224, the parking lots at the gas stations, Wal-Marts, grocery stores and strip malls all look horrible.
Is there any politician in Park City or for the Snyderville Basin who has a plan to address this? Are there any other programs that I could support to help alleviate the situation?
Shining examples of what’s right
I’d like to publicly, loudly, and enthusiastically acknowledge some friends who make Park City a great town. Joe Kernan, Carolyn Frankenberg, and Carol Potter are shining examples of what’s right with the world.
My retirement from military service is approaching. I spent six of eight months in Germany in support of operations in Iraq, Afghanistan, Lebanon, Africa, and Europe. I missed Park City a ton. During my deployment, I took great comfort in knowing my family, my dear, dear friends …. my "life" were here in this community. I returned to this amazing place that we’re so lucky to have as our home in mid-February 2006. I enjoyed the luxury of time, almost 6 weeks of paid leave, and I felt compelled to redirect my energies in a more positive feeling, local, close-to-home direction. When I heard about the walkable/bikeable movement, it was obvious I needed to be involved.
It’s been said that this global war on terror is about ensuring our safety. Joe, Carolyn, Carol and so many others are doing profoundly important work toward a "mission" in Park City on our own streets that I believe is every bit as important as any military service to ensure our safety.
