I love this story. I actually lived in the SULA, apartment 62A to be exact, from 1976 to 1978. It was my first apartment, I was a University of Utah student and I loved the building for all the reasons Colby Frazier and the other tenants cited. Plus, the Third Avenue bus line straight to the U. campus and regular takeout Chinese food from the Pagoda. My memory of the owners/landlords has faded, but given the timeline Colby provided, I realized it had to have been Dick and Jean Rayboud. Like the tenants interviewed in the story, I recall a neat and well-maintained building with the added benefit of great neighbors.
New owners, higher rents -- this made me sad. Thanks for the dip into nostalgia and some great memories, though. Nice work, Colby.

I am late to reading this, Stephen. It's lovely. Thank you for sharing your feelings, and for loving and supporting Katy through her grief.
Nice column, John. Just one thing: Tina Misaka is the daughter of the late Tats Misaka, Wat's brother. The daughter of Tats and Jeanette Misaka, to be exact. Tina, Diane and Kirk Misaka grew up four doors from me in Holladay and we all went to school together. A fantastic family. Thanks.
And this is news because ... Why? Truly, has it come to this, CW? You have Stephen Dark and Eric Petersen --two of the state's best journalists, who have always produced real stories, and told them with flair -- and you post this? Gossipy City Hall sources whose names you don't even demand. Where are your standards? Wow.
