Building on its past success, the PCHS football team held its 4th annual Team, Family & Friends BBQ on August 16th. Located at the Silver Mountain Sports Club and Spa and hosted again by Stanton and Nancy Jones, the evening was a great success in introducing the 2008 team and raising money to cover the cost of new equipment for this year’s 80 players. Nearly 300 people attended the evening which culminated with an auction of pies made by each senior player. A generous thanks to Wasatch Audio/Visual for donating the sound system, Dave Loyens as our auctioneer and Mike and Joyce Sibbett for the BBQ. We look forward to another great year in representing Park City. Come join us for a game.

McPolin recycling is off to hot start
McPolin is making some real changes this year; 10 new teachers, shades for the gymnasium, and more. One thing that has not changed this year is the Green Team’s commitment to recycling. The first week of school the students, parents and staff collected over 600 pounds of recycling. After the students demanded that the parents collect plastic as well as the paper, cardboard and tin last year, we had an amazing 18,000 pounds of material collected for the ’07-’08 school year. With a start of 600 pounds in one week it will be exciting to see if we can beat our record. I’m proud to be a McPolin parent.
Who chooses what laws to enforce?
The Park Record quoted Glenn Wright of the Summit County Democratic Party as saying he didn’t want local law enforcement to enforce any immigration laws.
As a lifelong Democrat I am appalled and offended that a leader of any party would take a position that the laws of the United States shouldn’t be enforced. To say such a thing is on its face, well, un-democratic.
Is Mr. Wright suggesting that we get to choose which laws should be enforced and which ones shouldn’t? Is he suggesting anarchy? Or should we just enforce those laws that Mr. Wright likes and dispense with these silly election things and just rename the USA the Kingdom of Glenn Wrightia?
I think Mr. Wright is doing a good job convincing me, a lifelong Democrat, to vote for McCain.
Used book sale was a labor of love
The Friends of the Park City Library have completed another financially successful Labor Day Weekend Used Book Sale. All proceeds benefit the Park City Library, and we couldn’t do it without the support of our entire community. Thank you to the many locals who join the Friends, donate books all year, volunteer to work at the sale and refill their bookshelves with purchases from the sale.
Special thanks to the helpful library staff, the team of city workers who helped us move the hundreds of boxes of books to the Santy Auditorium, and to Park City Market who donated paper bags for our shoppers. Your support is greatly appreciated.
Our next fundraiser to benefit the library is our annual Author Luncheon on Tuesday, October 21st, featuring as the speaker Carolyn Jessop who wrote "Escape," the story of her life with, and her escape from, an FLDS community with her eight children. Tickets are on sale at the Park City Library and Dolly’s Book Store. We know our local community will continue to be as supportive of this event as they are of our book sale!

Park City officials are preparing to take what is considered to be an important step in protecting the Treasure land from wildfires. City Hall in early June requested proposals from firms interested in the work.
