A group has formed in opposition to the Park City School District's proposed $5 million bond. Two members of the "Citizens for Better Education" say the district shouldn't be spending money for non-essential wants and more time should be taken to consider budget questions. Rick Brough has more.

ON today's program, host Leslie Thatcher speaks to School Board Members Julie Eihausen and Phil Kaplan about the $56 million dollar bond and timeline for construction. Park City Manger Diane Foster and Planning Director Bruce Erickson discuss some of the agenda items for Thursday's City Council meeting, including a new amended plat for the Alice Claim project, which puts the houses into the gully instead of the hillside and members of a new group Citizens for Better Education, Jim Tedford and Ali Zeisler talk about why they can't support the $56 million school bond.

After working in Vail, Jim Tedford moved to Alta to help Jim McConkey build the Alta Lodge in the early 1960's.  McConkey was then hired as the new ski patrol director of the soon to open Treasure Mountains ski resort and Tedford found his way to Park City in October 1863 to work on the ski patrol. 

In this week's Park City story, Tedford recalls that opening season as well as Park City's all important apres ski opportunities in the early 60's.
