Bigger Not Always Better

Silver Fork Lodge [“Forking Brilliant,” Aug. 4, City Weekly] in Big Cottonwood Canyon, I wanted to bring to your attention a recent Salt Lake Valley Health Department routine inspection that showed a high number of violations for the lodge. While the lodge has since taken care of nearly all the violations, I’m still concerned that adding an extra patio and such is just going to prolong people’s waits and place more stress on its kitchen, resulting in sloppier food and longer wait times.

But don’t get me wrong, [owner] Dan Knopp’s a great guy; let’s just hope no one with a clue realizes what a goldmine location he has and actually builds a well-run establishment with the means to cater to the summer masses and not be just a greedy proprietor.

  • A Strange and Barbaric Practice

    In the well-written City Weekly cover story on circumcision ["Circumcision Decision," Sept. 17], the God of the Jewish, Muslim and Christian religions is credited with beginning this practice: God demands that the 99-year- old Abraham cut off his foreskin in order to prove his loyalty.

  • Mike Noel's Resistance to Reason

    I enjoyed Colby Frazier's cover story about state Rep. Mike Noel, R-Kanab ["The Herd Bull of the House," May 14, City Weekly]. I attended the Great Public Lands Gamble Rally at the Capitol in January 2015, at which Noel audaciously stepped up to the microphone to attempt a refutation (the gospel according to St. Mike) of the "lies" being perpetrated by the proponents of public lands.
