Coaches, parents made it possible


On behalf of the Continental Mity Mite team, I would like to thank all of our coaches: Cal Coleman, Dave Loyens, Ryan Tibbitts, Todd Keizer, and my Dad, Rey Butcher. I have been playing football for the last four years and this is my second championship. Every year I learn something new from our coaches. I know some parents think football might be dangerous or take too much of your time, but I didn’t just learn about the plays and the formations. I think that the whole team has learned a lot about sportsmanship and teamwork. Sure we hit the other team hard, but we help them up every time too! We didn’t just have a smile on our face for completing the play, but so did the kid that just got tackled. As team co-captain, I learned to be a leader and motivate our players. I know the coaches on every team spent a lot of their time and they spent a lot of money on pizza. All of our coaches have taught us so much that I finally want to say thanks. If you know any of these fantastic coaches, make sure you say Hi and congratulations. And to all of the parents that came out to watch us, thanks. We also want to thank the board. I am sure I speak for every kid in the league and can say we know that without our coaches and parents we can’t play. Thanks for being a volunteer and making it possible for all of us to be champions. Park City rocks! Thank you for printing this letter.

Park City: your support is amazing


The People’s Health Clinic celebrated its 10th birthday in style last Monday night thanks to the generosity of Temple Har Shalom, Right at Home, Good Karma Catering, the Music Taxi, Smith’s Food & Drug, and the 14 bakers who donated birthday cakes.

The evening was a wonderful reminder of how our community has worked together for 10 years to make healthcare a reality for our uninsured neighbors. Thank you Park City for your amazing, continued support of our work. We can’t do it without you!
