Evanston, Wyoming man sentenced for Kamas stabbing
What officers are calling an unprovoked and completely random stabbing attack lead to a man from Evanston, Wyoming being charged with attempted murder on Monday. The suspect stabbed the 62-year-old victim in the neck, who was with his family at a convenience store 50 miles east of Kamas. The victim is said to be in serious, but stable condition.
Summit County transportation options see high usage
Summit County and Park City transportation officials said they were “blown out of the water” by the community’s interest in the new transit services initially introduced in 2017. Summit County reports more than seven thousand riders used the Kamas commuter and more than fifty thousand riders took advantage of the circulator. Both services will remain available throughout the shoulder seasons.
