If the paywall stops you, here’s the key portion of the letter:
The booths have a table with huge jars labeled “TIPS” on them, so customers put dollars in as tips for servers. But staff come around and collect the monies, stating they are “for the festival.” Who knows who actually pockets the money? Furthermore, if it is for the festival, why not just label them as such? I believe they know if the public thinks they’re giving tips they’ll give more.
I see that the festival powers-that-be want to continue this deceit.
Last year I complained about this practice, stating it needed to be changed. This year it’s the same.
I think that the UAF has some explaining to do. I know I intended my tips to go to the persons that waited on me, not to subsidize the price of admission.
Paramount Network has a new show called, “Marriage Rescue,” hosted by Jon Taffer of, “Bar Rescue.” Who knew the skill sets applied to personal relationships like it does to revamping businesses that specialized in drinking away the profits and serving unsafe food?
I ended up having to eat my two extra Little Feat tix. Such is life. But what I did come away with was a feeling that I'm done with Red Butte Concerts

The crowds there are beyond rude. You're at a concert, not having a dinner party in your living room! The people in front and in back of us talked the entire night - thru two hour-long sets. I would venture a guess that not one of them could later name any song that was played.
Over the last few years I've heard many of the performers call the crowd out on it, including Susan Tedeschi and Buddy Guy (his, "Get your hands out of my f-ing face!" and, "If you'd quit talking you'd learn something," comments were great and appropriate). I guess I don't get why someone would lay out the money and then totally ignore the art.
I like to think I called this one. I could never figure out what Stratolaunch’s payload niche was going to be for the satellites, and they kept switching out entire rocket concepts that the plane would carry. So, in a nod to Howard Hughes’ “Spruce Goose,” a few years back I started calling this plane the “Carbon Condor.” Should have copyrighted it.
Davis County bus driver appears to intentionally target one kid and could have killed him
by HoopUte 2019-05-07 16:55:05
All I can say from watching this video is I'm stunned there haven't been criminal charges (this happened in February of this year) and that this bus driver was simply allowed to quietly retire from the school district.
If you have access to the Trib online here's a link to the full story.
In a nutshell, this driver had multiple complaints about discrimination against minority students, and the kid in the video was the only multiracial student on the bus. The fact that the driver closed the door on the multiracial kid while five other kids were lined up to get off at the next stop sure make it look intentional.
WTF is wrong with some people? (That's rhetorical. No way anyone can adequately answer that one.)
Question about selling firearms, even ones that don’t actually have any fire
by HoopUte 2019-04-16 13:36:08
I figure someone who hunts or shoots for fun must be here among all the liberal scum (I think I’m kidding!). I’ve gotten the family assignment to sell off a bunch of miscellaneous stuff on behalf of my step-daughter. Among the items is a Gamo Cadet Delta pellet gun. I learned last night that KSL and Craigslist don’t accept gun ads. My question is, what’s the best way to get rid of this thing? They’re like $70 new and frankly $30 would take it out of my house.
Anybody have experience or recommendation on alert systems for the elderly? It's time for my mother to get one
by HoopUte 2019-04-09 10:41:41
She's 88, lives by herself in Brigham City, and all her friends are about in the same age and physical condition. She's also fallen a couple of times, not seriously hurt fortunately, and after a few months of us kids leaning on her we think we've finally worn her down to accept one.
There are some local companies and national ones like LifeAlert (the most pricey). We're sort of thinking she only needs one for in the home since if she is out she's nearly always around other people like with friends, church, or in the store. Her eyesight kind of sucks too so we're thinking about taking away the car keys soon.
Not that this should come as a surprise, but color me skeptical that he's being sincere and not just hoping to save his sorry ass. I wonder if the psychosis also fueled his claims on satanists taking over America, Bill Gates wanting to wipe out minorities, the government controlling the weather, PizzaGate, government complicity in terrorist attacks, millions of undocumented immigrants voting in 2016, aquariums full of half human flipper babies, and Glenn Beck being a CIA operative.
Despite Suns guards Devin Booker and Jimmer Fredette combining for 27 first-half points Monday night at Vivint Smart Home Arena, the Jazz somehow still found themselves up 19 at the break.
Perhaps if Booker hadn’t had to score all 27 of those himself, Phoenix might have been able to make a game of it.
Still, with the second period about to start, and former BYU star Fredette walking over to the scorer’s table to check in, the crowd began to cheer wildly — presumably because they had seen him play defense before and inferred an imminent expansion of the Jazz’s lead.
I watched about half of the game, during which Jimmer was in for a decent chunk of it, and that second quote really sums it up. I couldn't believe how easy it was for the Jazz to get layups and dunks against the Suns. No defensive effort is probably too generous of a description.
I’ve been trying to sell some stuff on behalf of my step daughter. I have to laugh at some people’s negotiating methods.

Been trying to see how it goes on Facebook Marketplace. Among the items is my old road bike (I upgraded). The first question I got was, “What’s the least you’ll sell it for?” It took a lot for me to not just say, “Why the hell would I tell you that?” Geez people, that number is mine to know. Don’t try to low ball me against myself if you’re not even willing to come look at it first.
I’ve had people try that with cars and even my old house once. I consider it proof they’re not serious.
Apparently the schools knew nothing about it, but some coaches may be involved. Why the actresses were involved will be interesting to learn as more comes out. There are three of our conference partners that are on the list - UCLA, USC, and Stanford. I’d hope if the cheaters are still there they will be expelled forthwith.
We’re still in San Diego and have talked to many NU fans. They’ve all been very gracious with two exceptions.

Two people in NU attire made sure to leave the trolley last night saying pro BYU crap and that going to BYU got him into NU. They got out the door quickly before I could ask them about the last nine years, but they definitely helped to reinforce the Zoob stereotype.
