We had a really long planning commission meeting last night. We started at 7 pm and ended about 11:30 pm. This was a big issue for a relatively small (population) valley. Rocky Mountain Power wants to run a high-voltage transmission line, to provide power to the west side of the Salt Lake Valley, through Tooele and along our picturesque east bench. The people on the east side of the Oquirrh Mountains seem to forget that there are people living on the west side of the range. It was amazing how the time really seemed to go by quickly as we listened to input from so many citizens. The Tooele Transcript Bulletin carried an article about the meeting.
I am the father of 4 great children and two incredible daughters-in-law. I have been married to the same amazingwoman for over 26 years. I enjoy life especially when I am outdoors. I am employed as the Environmental Manager for a mining company.
I think that the Disney character that I'm most like would have to be
Aladdin. I'm not sure if this is because it was my favorite Disney movie as
a child ...

My sister Kimberly is 10 years my junior. She is among the most adventuresome and accomplished of my siblings. She is married to Sione Fifita and they have one son Viliami who just turned two. She has been a professor of English in Hawaii and currently works for a scrapbooking supply company (Stampin Up). She has actually changed jobs more often than I have! She is writing a novel (has been for years) which I am eagerly anticipating. She has always been a great sister and in some sense is the glue that keeps all six of us bonded together. It has been nice to have her family back on the mainland and to live closer to them.
