Cover Story, Sept. 1, "Into the Wilderness"
Great story. Thank you.
Melissa O'Brien Fields
This one is definitely nice.
What a fantastic job Katherine Pioli did writing her attempt at the Highline Trail. She did a great job explaining the fear, the apprehension and the beauty and glory of the great outdoors. Please pass on my congratulations, and I wish her the very best on her second attempt. Please tell her 65 pounds each is way too much for eight days.

News, Sept. 1, "Bitter Victory"
Another case of governments, big, little and in between, stomping on their citizens to win at all costs. Grrrrr.

Yup, hard to fight a crocked system based upon lies.
Insanity run amok.
Melodie Thomas Jacobsen
As opposed to insanity waiting quietly on the settee?
Sandy city should, in good faith to its residents and business owners, pay for a portion of this man's legal fees as well as go after Ogden for monies that do not belong to them. All around crooked deal. Tinto stadium should also pay yearly for the property with the box on it, as it seems as if they are renting it from Maupin as well as back rent. That may be some way to help with the resolution. But ... that would just be the right thing to do! Seems like our government and state try to sweep things under the rug instead of doing the right thing.
I wish the city of Sandy would step up to the plate and make it right with this small business owner. He shouldn't have had to go through this legal battle with the city to prove that the property was his all along! Shameful to do this to Mr. Maupin and his family. I hope that this man doesn't go through much more unnecessary hardship than he already has had to go through.
Opinion, Sept. 1, "Coyote Clash"
Shoot them ... No problem.
Coyotes already in SLC neighborhoods. Only when coyotes become habituated to humans will conflicts occur.
Five Spot, Sept. 1, Derk Boss
One of the most gifted songwriters I have encountered. Listening to Derk's music is a transportive and captivating experience. I'm excited to see what's next!
Derk, you're a boss (literally). Keep up the good work, every door gets you closer to your goal.
This guy came to my house and was incredible. Profound lyrics and beautifully talented.
Blog, Sept. 2, "Kent Hart's Last Letter"
Apparently a lot of people (including on my Facebook page) thought very highly of him. I never knew him but saw a lot of great posts on and about him. Now I'll have to read this.
This is Evan Hart, Kent Hart's son (not the one who returned from a mission). I would like to thank you deeply for this article. It continues to astound me how many people my dad has helped and guided; I am now more proud than ever to be able to call him my father. It's people like this who make the pain of his passing bearable.
Thank you, City Weekly, for publishing Kent's last letter. Makes me happy to keep his legacy alive.
Hits & Misses, Sept. 1, "Healthcare Malaise"
I just wanted to say that I appreciated your comments on healthcare malaise in City Weekly, and I'm glad that the issue still gets some discussion in the media.

Literally saw a dude in blackface the first year I went to SLCC.
