I am the founder and board member of "Back To Our Roots." We donate scholarships to local Park City students through the Eileen G. Bailey Memorial Scholarship Endowment Fund.
I have had the opportunity of working with Ms. Dana Ardovino, community scholarship advisor, over the past two years. Ms. Ardovino’s hard work and personal connection with students and the community has made helping Park City High School graduates the highest priority of Back To Our Roots.
I urge other people in the community to give to the Park City High School Community Scholarship Program. During these tough economic times, it is our duty and obligation as citizens to help ensure that our kids succeed in life by helping them afford college. There is no greater gift that the gift of education.

Fund-raiser was a howling success
THANK YOU to everyone who made the City Bar dog park fund-raiser a success. We had a great crowd and raised money to improve the park. We are one step closer to making Ariel Vernell’s beautiful donated landscape design a reality. More than 75 businesses contributed from Main Street to Kimball Junction. Special thanks to our committee members Susan Alleva, Kyle Gervais, Monica Guendner (we couldn’t have done it without you), Cathy King, Margie Schloesser, Liza Simpson, and everyone who pitched in to help. Extra credit/thank you’s to Downstairs, musicians Dave Hahn, Lisa Needham, and DJ Dany Dance.

It’s time to thank Vietnam veterans
March 30 has been designated, by Act of Congress, as "Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day." Vietnam veterans were the only U.S. veterans who came home to vilification and derision, i.e., "baby killers" etc. The thousands of us who experienced this terrible homecoming said then, as one voice, "Never Again." And it has become so. Thank you America for learning that it’s okay to hate conflict but not okay to hate or to show disrespect to the men and women who answered America’s call to arms and service.
Thank you my brothers and sisters in arms who served in Vietnam. And thank you to those who serve us today. And know that your families have a special place in our hearts for their sacrifice of your service. For God and Country.
