Recycling campaign was tree-mendous


On behalf of the boys’ and girls’ Park City Lacrosse Team, I would like to express my sincere thanks to the residents of Park City for their assistance and generosity during our annual Christmas Tree recycling campaign. We collected in excess of 450 trees over the past two weekends and in doing so exceeded our 2010 target and our 2009 campaign by over 25%! Thanks also to the athletes and all the parent volunteers who made the 2010 campaign such a success. The fundraising proceeds help to offset our field-time fees, training, equipment, travel and other significant expenses required to field a high-caliber program. With everyone’s help we are off to a great start in 2010. Thanks again and Go Park City Lacrosse!

Nightly lodging tally doesn’t add up


Just for fun I track the nightly lodging tally posted in The Record each week. For the past many years 65,579 total visitor nights would have been 40% occupancy. Now it’s 49% … Curious.

A prodigious font of good judgment


On behalf of my family, and as a former city manager in Park City, I wish to express our gratitude for Roger Harlan’s life of service to youth and his devotion to the citizens of Park City. He stood for the community’s interests with wisdom and a spirit of good will found only in great public officials. Roger inspired, counseled and reliably supported the employees and volunteers who work to make Park City a great community. He served as the city council’s moral compass and as a prodigious font of pragmatic good judgment. I will miss his friendship and his ever-ready smile. I hope that his family takes solace in the knowledge that he lived a selfless life of commitment to his fellow man and that his efforts produced a measurably better world.
