Councilor declines to run for re-election
Dear fellow Parkites,
I am honored to have been appointed to fill Candy Erickson’s term and then be elected to City Council in 2012. Having served on the Historic District commission, Planning Commission, and now City Council, I have learned a lot about what makes our wonderful community tick.
It is now time for others to become engaged and help lead Park City into the future. I have decided not to run for re-election to the Park City Council. I encourage those that are considering a campaign to throw their hat into the ring.
Get involved, shape the future, our little democracy needs you!

Treble Makers are thankful
The Park City Treble Makers presented the spring concert, "A Celebration of Song" May 31 at Temple Har Shalom. The concert was well attended and donations accepted for Peace House totaled $700.
The Park City Treble Makers would like to thank those who helped to make the concert a success. Temple Har Shalom provided a beautiful venue while Scott Iwasaki of The Park Record and KPCW’s Randy Barton supplied publicity. For our receptive audience who made time on a lovely spring day to attend our concert we are especially grateful. Your generous donations to Peace House will support their vital mission. Your attendance sustains the mission of Park City Treble Makers and gives meaning to our performance. We thank you for allowing us to share our love of music.
Shelle Jennings, Director

McPolin Farm site needs to be protected
Forget about nesting sites for Sand Hill Cranes, muskrat dams, frogs, nighthawks, deer, elk, a trail for strolling, jogging and bicycling. Think of McPolin scenic open space as sort of a skin. Now picture that scenic skin being stripped and replaced by asphalt to contribute to global warming through heat absorption and carbon dioxide imprinting secondary to our exhaust.
How fortunate Park City is to have the McPolin Farm site.
My daughter tells me not to worry, McPolin is protected." My daughter and I are of different generations and I do worry. When Summit County transferred guardianship of the Memorial Building to Park City, the city turned it into real estate and sold it. How can you sell a memorial? Nothing is sacred.
