A big benefit for the Museum


Park City Mountain Resort’s Benefit Day was an amazing experience. This year’s benefactor was the Park City Historical Society and Museum, an organization close to my heart because I sit on the Board and am committed to preserving our rich history.

All of the lift tickets generously donated sold out and helped make a $50,000 contribution to the capital campaign to renovate and expand the Museum at 518 Main St. Everyone who hit the slopes that day had a fun time and commented on the great conditions. Thank you to Park City Mountain Resort!

I am especially appreciative of how the Park City community came together to support this event. We asked favors of many, many great people in Park City to help us promote the event, sell tickets, design advertising, hang banners and do whatever it would take to pull this off. Each person asked said, "Sure. I’m happy to help." What a great experience for all of us! The people of Park City are what make this place so great.

We would like to extend a special thank you to KSL TV, The Park Record and PCTV for donating media to promote Benefit Day. Another thank you goes to all the great retail locations in Park City who helped distribute and sell tickets.

Thank you to everyone. It is a pleasure to live in this community.

Summit County Library book sale


Thanks to all those who supported our fifth annual Half-Price New Book Sale held at the Main Summit County Library Branch in Kimball Junction. Your generosity along with the Scholastic Book Company enabled us to present 500 new books to the county libraries as part of our annual Friends gift. Many thanks also to the volunteers who gave up their time during this busy season to conduct the sale. If you missed this sale, remember our big "Used Book Sale" in May.

Keep on reading!

Put an end to wasteful lawsuits


It’s almost 2007 and you, Summit Water, are still trying to break the competition. You’re causing Summit County to defend itself against years and years of frivolous lawsuits. You’ve hired expert New York and Texas lawyers to no avail.

Mountain Regional Water, started by Summit County Commissioners Kerr, Shifferli and Cone to protect landowners against failing water companies, is still here as are you and Gorgoza and other water companies.

Stop wasting taxpayers’ money, Summit Water!

You have a level playing field you can bid on the same projects.
