Rice King Noodle

Last week I was on my way to lunch with Corey and Helen when I noticed a new place to eat downtown.  We decided to try it.  It turns out it was their grand opening.
Welcome to Provo, Rice King Noodle (225 West Center Street)!

Wilson Audio

Last week I toured Wilson Audio.  First, may I say thank you to my host Sheryl Lee and her husband Dave.

How many of us know that right here in Provo the world’s best speakers are designed and manufactured?  When I say world’s best I’m not kidding.

“Dave Wilson has always been motivated by his insatiable curiosity, his love of good science, and his empirical open-mindedness. His simple desire is to build loudspeakers he himself would want to own. Dave has the self-confidence to believe his products will succeed in the marketplace, and the humility to recognize his is not the only valid approach.”

It shouldn’t surprise anyone to learn that Sheryl Lee is 
Ms. Utah Senior America and will be representing the state in the national competition in a few weeks.

Live United

Last week it was my honor to participate in the United Way of Utah County “Day of Caring.”  We started the day with a pancake breakfast.  I watched in horror as the volunteers ate some really bad pancakes (not cooked by me).  Over a thousand individuals spread out around our county doing a “zillion” service projects.  Many of these were done in Provo.
Thank you to Bill and the dedicate cast who made this happen.

Time to Use the Stairs

Today, Helen Anderson and I had a reminder of how tight the City has cut our capitol improvement budget.  
Many of us that ride the elevator in the City Center know just how tired the elevator is but I never suspected it would choose to die while I was riding in it.   
Just like the movies, Helen and I found ourselves stuck in the elevator.
Thanks to Dick Blackham for rescuing us.  
Dick and his team work miracles keeping our City running on a thin budget 
but this old thing might get the best of them.
Just one more reminder that I know the tax payers expect us to 
“use it up wear it out make it to or do without.”
