Vail Resorts does not intend to withdraw its application for the trademark of the words "Park City," but company officials hope that after Thursday's discussion with Park City council, the community will better understand why they're doing what they're doing. Leslie Thatcher has more.

Over 100 people gathered at the Jim Santy Auditorium on Wednesday night to hear the history of the Treasure Hill project and how the schedule for looking at the application will lay out over the next year or so. While no specific conditional use permit was looked at, there was time given for ample public comment. Lynn Ware Peek has more.

The count keeps getting higher.  As of Tuesday afternoon, more than fifty people have asked the federal trademark office for more time to consider what threat, if any, exists if Vail owns a trademark for the name "Park City."  The deadline to file an extension request with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office is this Thursday.  That's the same day city council will take up the issue in a work session.  And now a new group called Future Park City is getting in on the action.  KPCW's Renai Bodley has the latest.
