Iron Horse residents are Parkites, too


Fireside and Iron Horse condos are not to be referred to as Little Mexico. There, I said it.

Fifteen years ago, as a ski instructor, I did not want to live in either property and even stated, when my roommates and I were looking to move, that I did not want to live in "Little Mexico." Today, I own a condo there and have for eight years. I have a five-year-old daughter who plays with her friends in the courtyard, a garden out of planter boxes on the back hill, a bright orange wall that greets me every day when I enter my home.

Yes, there are real issues here to all that live in Park City in consideration of the substation that is threatening to be planted in our front yard; millions of dollars to be taken from our schools to pay the developer; a substation sitting on our glorious Rail Trail; the compromising of our park system; and the inadequacy of our political system to truly find a solution.

But those are not even my issues. Look at us in Fireside and Iron Horse as the people we are: teachers, police, restaurant workers, bank employees, landowners, parents, resort managers, protestors, recreation enthusiasts we are the people of Park City. Help us: Stop the moving of the substation as our friends.

Heartfelt thanks for caring and compassion


Thanks to the creativity and hard work of a multigenerational group of volunteers, The People’s Health Clinic will be able to welcome 20 newborns into the world with a warm blanket and a basket full of baby items.

We are honored to have been chosen as one of many projects during Temple Har Shalom’s Mitzvah Day on June 2 and are excited to have the opportunity to give the baskets to our "moms-to-be" once they complete a series of prenatal classes. A heartfelt thank you goes out to Brooke Vandrager and Judy Horowitz for their leadership in the project and to the entire Temple Har Shalom Community for their caring and compassion for those less fortunate in our community. Our patients truly appreciate your efforts!

Nann Worel

Executive director, The People’s Health Clinic
