Driving whileinsane

To the reckless Mercedes:

What were you thinking (or were you thinking?) that Dec. 5 morning when you recklessly drove your silver Mercedes G500 at 100-plus mph in and out of traffic down Parley’s Canyon? Late for work? Coffee? What could be so important that you could risk the lives of all the people in your reckless path?

The so-called traffic or obstacles that you raced by have names and families. What would you say to my family if you had killed me with your mindless activity? I have a pretty good idea of what I would do to you if you hurt or killed one of my family members! Wise up!

Ski cheap for a good cause


Park City Mountain Resort generously donates to nonprofits in our community through sales of lift tickets on Benefit Day. This year’s Benefit Day is Friday, Dec. 15. Lift tickets bought in advance are $20. All proceeds go to the Park City Historical Society and Museum.

The City of Park City recently leased the buildings at 513 Main St. to the Museum for 99 years at no charge. The Historical Society is undergoing a large capital campaign to raise $5 to $6 million dollars to renovate these buildings into a world-class museum showcasing the rich history of our community.

We thank Park City Mountain Resort for their great contribution and hope that everyone will buy tickets and have a great day skiing on Dec. 15.

Tickets must be bought by Dec. 14 at the Museum, Jans Sports, Cole Sports, Paisley Pomegranate, Zions Bank or Right At Home. They can also be purchased in Salt Lake City at Canyon Sports and the University of Utah Union Building.

Giving health and hope


Good causes are plentiful in Park City and giving thanks to benefactors in this section of the paper commonplace. But what stands out, time and time again, is the generosity of local merchants who continue to support the non-profits they believe in. The underwriters of the People’s Health Clinic’s annual fundraiser made it possible for us to reach out to the public and celebrate our cause. Thanks to Frontier Bank, The Grubsteak Restaurant, C & S Creative, Cole Sport, Café Terigo and the Egyptian Theater for supporting our mission of helping those with no health insurance.

As I am limited to naming six businesses and/or individuals in this format, let me just say that the group the mayor hangs around with was pretty darn great, the talented blonde female singer on keyboards was fantastic as usual, and the duo who pose as an engineer and teacher by day, and rock and roll legends by night, were superb. If you missed the party, you can still feel like you were a part of the feel-good festivities by sending your donation to the People’s Health Clinic, P.O. Box 681558, Park City, Utah 84068.

Happy Holidays,

Terry Moffitt

Kearns Boulevard traffic


I just moved to town and am really surprised how busy the traffic is on Kearns Boulevard from 7 to 10 a.m. and after school. I would think the city would widen the road to four lanes with a turn lane. As far as the student/pedestrian traffic crossing the road, build crossing bridges. I can’t believe the city cannot afford to build two walking bridges to keep its children safe. Wake up, Park City.
