To our dear neighbors in Utah's Beaver County


Out here in the real world, we have motors, wheels, electricity, and all sorts of neat stuff.

In the UTAH section of Sunday's Tribune, Beaver residents state that they are up in arms that a developer wants to develop an upscale resort area where the rich and famous can come to play, and leave their money behind when they leave.

Said one resident, "It's all Hollywood money, and we don't need them coming in here with their Hollywood drugs and their Hollywood pornography."

I'm thinking this person needs to move to Kanab, where she can raise her "full quiver" of a family, while grinding her wheat between two stones to make her bread.

And besides, is the Hollywood porn better than the stuff we have here?

This all reminds me of a Hunter S Thompson quote about Hollywood:
"It's a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. And there's also a negative side."

Two of my brothers live and raise their families in Park City, which certainly has its share of exclusive developments. There are downsides, but some wonderful upsides as well. But it's certainly not the worst thing that could happen to a community. Beaver County residents should reconsider their "you're not welcome here" stance.

Benefits like sales tax revenues and jobs come to mind.

Talk about looking a gift horse in the mouth...
