    There is a huge emotional attachment to libraries, especially in a small family-oriented city like Provo. I’m not in favor of just getting rid of them, but I do recognize that the city blows a lot of unnecessary tax dollars on libraries that simply don’t need to be spent. I think there is room in the middle to downsize and stick with what the city NEEDS. I’d rather that money go towards improving the schools themselves.

    I wouldn’t put a bunch of stock into it. This was announced on May 10th and they likely were in discussions with Gordon’s agent long before that. So either he leaves Utah and shows up anyway (which is likely) or he simply backs out after announcing he’s leaving Utah.

    Having said that, obviously he and his agents have been aware of his player option and I’m sure the thought crossed their minds that Gordon may not be in Utah in September. This does put a little doubt into my mind and makes me think this could be a slip of information that they figured nobody would pick up on. Perhaps I’m just telling myself this because I really want Gordon to stay šŸ™‚ #Stayward

    Yeah Chad is a chef I’ve heard a lot about as well. We need to get him on Questovo to get his two cents as I’m sure he has a list of great chefs in the area.

    I don’t know the exact reason, but I do know many city officials are not huge fans of getting a Cheesecake Factory in Provo. Dixon Holmes a couple years ago saidĀ “Our demographic is JC Penney, not the Cheesecake Factory.”

    In short, no. I don’t think Provo City is under the illusion that they are going to “replace” the discussions going on within popular networks like Facebook. I think because Facebook groups are so unregulated, politicians are naturally hesitant to participate. The city is simply trying to create an “official” place for voices to be heard on key topics. I like the thinking, but the bottom line is people don’t want to participateĀ on a government-controlled platform where voices can be easily censored. That is much tougher to do on a platform like Facebook.

    You can dig in further through CNN’s interactive map, but here is the direct answer to your question:

    Salt Lake County
    Clinton: 42.8% (154,831)
    Trump: 32.6% (117,901)

    Utah County
    Trump: 51.3% (89,755)
    Clinton: 14.0% (24,579)

    If SLC is too far then your options are going to be way limited. My suggestion would be to check out Park City. Fantastic place for a weekend getaway. In the summer you’ve got things like the Alpine slide, ski lift rides, the Utah Olympic Park, and much more. It’s the perfect place to “unplug”.
