Letters to the Editor
On behalf of Temple Har Shalom and the Jewish Community of Park City, we would like to express our sincere gratitude to Shepherd of the Mountain Lutheran Church, Park City Community Church and St. Luke’s Episcopal Church for the wonderful expression of support in dedicating the April 13 Maundy Thursday offering to establishment of our permanent home. Their wonderful generosity of spirit is all the more meaningful to us as it is an unsolicited offering of the heart.
Temple Har Shalom has been embraced by Park City and Summit County since its inception 11 years ago. One major element of our mission is to enhance the lives of Parkites; we can only hope our contribution to the community will be as significant as these three wonderful religious institutions.
We look forward to celebrating the dedication of our synagogue with the community sometime in late 2007 or early 2008.

Loyalty vs. politics
I found something rather odd after reading The Park Record (April 19 edition) on the candidates for assessor. If current assessor Barbara Kresser has such "loyalty" among her staff that prompted her to run again after she made it public she would retire, then why would one of her "dedicated" staff members run against her in the Republican Party (Mr. Gene Lambert)? Hmmm.

Support for Peace House
The Park City Performing Arts Foundation and the talented ladies who performed "The Vagina Monologues" deserve a second round of applause. Peace House, Inc., a Park City shelter for women and children fleeing domestic violence, would like to thank the foundation for making us the beneficiary of the event’s proceeds. The success of the event has been twofold – creating awareness of a serious social problem as well as support for our much needed programs (and donations are still coming in).
We are especially proud that Park City joined other cities across the nation in the observance of "V Day," which denounces all forms of violence against women worldwide.
Thanks to all who attended. I’m sure you will agree that an encore performance would be welcomed next year!

A good deed well done
Special thanks to the Scout troop 1383 and their Scout Master Brad Bailey for going beyond the call of duty and sandbagging around the waterlogged area in the Ranch Place subdivision to maintain the integrity of our property. You guys were awesome! Thanks also to Kirk Webber, our neighbor, who helped so much.
Thanks Mike Beeley for coordinating between Summit County Public Works who delivered the sand and plastic bags as requested and the Scouts who put it to good use. And again, Mike, for getting in the mud and helping the kids lay the bags, thank you. To Lance Kincade, Russ Tychsen and the young men’s and young women’s group for pitching in, thank you all. In less than 45 minutes you laid all the sandbags in sight! We are so blessed to have this kind of community support.
