Title Page507
Description THE UTAH NEWSPAPER HALL OF FAME was one option he quoted, adding, "A great rest for the tired traveler - but of course this would pose a problem of loading and unloading at either end. (Authentic Indians would be ticket-takers to give it a colorful local pitch)." Tongue-in-cheek, he cited as 'having merit' another suggestion that "We might dredge the Sevier River so that barges could be used to float semi's and tourist traffic from Sevier to Salina via air pad or hydrofoil." He continued, "And the gem of the possibility that we fly a shuttle of Jumbo Jets from Sevier to Salina was the real corker." That prompted this question, What would it do to the price of a can of beer in San Diego if they had to fly a Coors semi those long, torturous 35 miles in a Jumbo Jet?" When the report continued, "We discussed helicopter or VSTOL (very short takeoff and landing) aircraft," the 'Rat' noted, "He wisely added that the cost of operating such vehicles in sufficient numbers to offer convenient service to valley residents would be high and impact on the environment, due to the noise output of the aircraft, would be great." He went on, "It was commendable that this fairy tale idiot admitted on the possibility of building an underground tubular tunnel from Sevier to Salina so the ecology wouldn't be disturbed, 'Its cost of design and construction virtually prohibits its use.'" Fuellenbach concluded, "This is the kind of exploratory junk your tax dollar is being spent on." In the category of humorous happenings people hoped wouldn't become generally known was this bit from 1965: "Little fireman Me Palmer doesn't get excited when he takes his broom tails to the race meet - but he was in Beaver last week when the rain soaked him up and doubled his weight. Was going to make a quick change of his wet duds in the stable between the races - wasn't quite as fast as he thought he could be. People passing by wondered what kind of a nut he was - shirtless and caught with his pants down. Me had forgotten to take off his spurs and excitedly got all balled up in his riding habit" 507
