Chris Stewart is a prominent spokesman for my party. As a green elephant (environmentally conscientious Republican), I appreciate his comment, “None of us wants to see a species go extinct.” I hope this sentiment will become one people automatically associate with the GOP. But I worry about his ability to be successful if he does not understand his opposition. I would encourage him to try to understand those who disagree with his position, if for no other reason to be able to more effec...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

Calling PCMR’s failure to renew the lease a “clerical error” is like referring to the civil war as the “unpleasantness” of the 19th century. 2. It is unlikely that the economic sky will fall in either Summit county or Utah regardless of who prevails in this dispute. (a.) Even if PCMR were not to operate in 2014-2015 many of their patrons are likely to visit Deer Valley or the Canyons. (b.)

So when Cassel re-signed with the Minnesota Vikings in the offseason and started to digest Norv Turner’s new system, he knew he’d have to work harder and study longer than he ever had before to win the starting job. Mission accomplished.
