If you invite Jeff to your Barbeque, make sure that you dont screw up the music.

Re: “Weird & Wild

There are new Pickleball courts in Ogden, St. George, Brigham, Hurricane and Cedar City. Pickleball is taught in the public schools in Ogden and St. George. Only Salt Lake City is lagging behind as the sport gains popularity. Nevertheless, you can play Pickleball every day of the week at one of the Salt Lake County recreation centers. The Ogden Pickleball Association, 200 strong, is hosting a regional tournament next month.

Re: “Party Monster

Love it Colin! This makes me eager for a Summer party. I agree, '80s parties are starting to get on my nerves too. Way to spruce it up! :-)

A nice Queen Anne Victorian between two 7 plexes housing ex cons and drug addicts. Same with the bike paths, enjoy the vagrants bathing while you roll by.

Re: “Ogling Ogden

Sorry, but you're just, plain wrong. Ther are lots of really nice neighborhoods right here in SLC. Most are in small pockets here and there. The Avenues/Marmalade district, Harvard-Yale area, Westminster area, Federal Heights, Holladay, etc. No argument on air quality; it's toxic and terrible all over. I agree that some areas are out of a science fiction movie, like Thanksgiving Point residential developments and most neighborhoods with cookie-cutter shopping centers like West and South Jordan. Still a better quality of life than Ogden.

Re: “Ogling Ogden

There's no need to get mean. I have the option of living anywhere I want (inside or out of Utah) -- and I choose Ogden! Partially because of the fact that no one else gets it. It means plenty of uncrowded hiking/biking trails and fresh powder stashes literally minutes from my historic 1890 Queen Anne Victorian house.

Re: “Ogling Ogden

Down, boy. I don't live in Olympus Cove. I'm not sure you live in Ogden, either, but the half-century of experience living 30 miles south of it tells me you're still an asshole regardless of your location. Personally, I'm glad some people like Ogden, frankly. As long as you don't have to spend much time there, it's fine.

Re: “Ogling Ogden

before you folks get too serious about defending whatever nasty part of this valley you live in let's try and agree on something beforehand - if you're honest it should be easy to do. the entire wasatch front is a dump. all of it. the entire valley is filled with ugly, cheap, plastic tract homes, beige strip malls and extremely boring churches. the entire valley is a polluted piece of crap. it doesn't matter whether you live in ogden or slc or kaysville or layton - it's all ugly, dull, poorly designed and about as asthetically pleasing as a festering boil. when you guys fight over which nasty city in this state is the best or worst it's like you're fighting over the last two whores in nevada's cheapest whorehouse.

@ Not Greek: Ladies and Gentlemen! May I present one of Ogden's finest! This class act is representative of Ogden at it's best.

Re: “Ogling Ogden

I knew Olympus Cove was filled with some pompous ass sacks, but this cunt muscle really proves a point.

Re: “Ogling Ogden

I don't think you have to worry about your secret getting out. For me to drive to Ogden to recreate when I live at the base of Mt.Olympus would be like Walt Disney making a special trip to visit Lagoon.

Re: “Ogling Ogden

Shhhh! It's our little secret! And I quite enjoy having it all to myself - well, me and all my very cool urban hipster meets outdoor type friends! Good thing you forgot to mention that we have a streetcar in the works!

Re: “Ogling Ogden

Thanks for writing a positive article about our town. Many of us are working hard to reclaim this City and bring it back to its original glory. Ogden has an abundance of amazing historic houses and buildings. People from all over the country see this and are relocating here. Check out the miles of bike path along the Ogden River that now ties into the Weber River Path and Riverdale! Thanks Weber Pathways! And everyone who has a passion for Ogden.

Re: “Ogling Ogden

Ogden is a dump overpopulated with alcoholics and ex-convicts. Ogden valley and the mountain are nice but they are not the city. That would be like calling Park City, Salt Lake City.

Re: “Ogling Ogden

the only reason people in slc bag on that dump called ogden is because it makes them feel better about their own dumpy town.
