Wednesday, January?, 1976 How Kboat It? How do you spend most of your time in Park City? NecospapeR fubltc Bote Pegs 2 Talk Telephone Gymnastics Well, it's over. The Christmas-New Year's holiday bulge was something else this year record numbers of people spending record amounts of money, and hopefully, setting records on their personal fun meters. : During this brief but welcome respite when local merchants are almost (but not quite) too fatigued to tally the cash register receipts, dare we mention next Christmas? : Everybody enjoys success. It usually stirs a yearning for even more success. This Christmas was a biggie but why not even bigger next year? Indeed, why not? But success exacts a price. More people than ever before enjoyed the recreation, entertainment and hospitality of Park. City. Unfortunately, due to the numbers involved, more people than ever before were disappointed, distressed, distraught or disillusioned during their stay here. Whenever such a deluge of humanity gathers in one place, some people are going to be inconvenienced. in-convenienced. You can never satisfy everybody but trying tq do so certainly can't hurt. One area of service which we feel can be improved im-proved is lodging. Overbooking by a small percentage is normal procedure for lodges, hotels, condominiums, etc., during peak periods. It insulates the lodge owner against lost revenues due to last minute cancellations. It can also result in a more-people-than-beds situation. Due. to the uncertainty of the United Airlines strike, overbooking was practiced to a greater degree this Christmas. The result was some mad scrambling to match guests with beds. Holiday periods are characterized by telephone telethons even without airline strikes. Lodge owners with capacity crowds and more at the door run Ma Bell ragged attempting to find room for would-be skiers. They try here and there, running down tips on what "might" be available at other lodges. ' We suggest a central clearing house for lodging during maximum load periods. All lodginfacities i In town could report their ; occupancy sitw'nrkeut&ngeao., a central location established by either the Chamber of Commerce or the Lodging Association. When the proprietor or manager of a full house receives a lodging request or has a reservation he cannot honor, he refers it to the clearing house. The clearing house can then given an accurate and timely report on what's available at what price, eliminating the telephone gymnastics. If the caller gets his room, it is scratched from the list. If a vacancy pops up, it is reported and recorded. Everyone saves time and everyone is happier. If the visitor leaves Park City happy, he comes back next Christmas, which then becomes even bigger than the one before. This is just one small suggestion which is germane to a basic philosophy. We don't want next Christmas (or Washington's Birthday, or Easter) to be bigger. We want it to be bigger and better.

BOX 738 PARK CITY, UTAH 84060 ft t .i Participants in in proposed $3.5 billion Kaiparowits Power Project in Southern Utah announced an-nounced that delays in regulatory approvals had forced deferral of scheduled initial operation of the project by one year. ' Speaking for the electric utility participants in the huge coal-fired project, William Ft. Gould, executive vice preseident of Southern California Edison Company, said: "We must regrettably recognize these delays as realities and establish revised initial operating dates. "The participants recognize that any major energy project will result in environmental impacts," Gould said. "However, the Kaiparowits project has made an unprecedented commitment to environmental en-vironmental protection. "We intend to continue to proceed as rapidly as possible toward obtaining regulatory approval. However, until the various environmental issues and regulatory delays are resolved, and resultant cost increases are assessed, the participants" cannot prudently continue to make major expenditures (which would have 'amounted to approximately $80 million in 1976) to meet the present schedule." . This rescheduling, of necessity, Gould said, will delay completion dates one year for the generating units to the 1982, '83, '84 timeframe. time-frame. l - Edison, Arizona Public Service Company and the San Diego Gas and Electric Company are the present project participants. Other utilities in Utah, Arizona and California have expressed interest in purchasing the 18.6 percent of uncommitted power from the project. "The project is not a new proposal," Gould said. "It 1- i ... s ueen on uie drawing Boards Boar-ds since 1962, and it has been in the environmental review process for nearly four years." A series of public hearings on the draft impact statement was held last September by the Bureau of Land Management Department of Interior, in Utah, Arizona, ; Nevada and California. "Testimony at the hearings, as well as a statewide state-wide poll by Utah Senator Frank Moss, established that . the majority of Utah residents and state governmental govern-mental leaders are strongly in favor of the project," Gould said.
