Three Utahns will be the latest inductees to the Intermountain Ski Hall of Fame, in a ceremony scheduled next month.

The Hall of Fame is a collaboration between two major entities. The J. Willard Marriott Library Ski Archives sets up a committee that nominates the honorees.

The Alf Engen Ski Museum, located at the Utah Olympic Park, is a sponsor for the ceremony and it houses the plaques for those who are honored.

The director of the museum, Connie Nelson, said they’re honoring two living recipients and one deceased inductee this year.

Applications for the 25th Leadership Park City Class are open now through Friday August 24th.

Founder and Director Myles Rademan says the Leadership Park City program is open to those who live or work in the greater Park City area and want to give back to their community.

The Park City Council voted Thursday night to approve a new venue for the Sundance Film Festival, in a commercial space near Park Avenue.

The council approved a venue for 950 Iron Horse Drive—the vacant commercial space next to Rite Aid.

The space was for many years a Blockbuster Video.

Now, according to Sundance Institute Managing Director Betsy Wallace, it will be used as a merchandising store in the months leading up to the festival.

In the new movie “BlacKkKlansman” a strange true story from the 1970’s is used  to bring up some controversial issues of today. Rick Brough has the Friday Film Review.

With his latest film, legendary director Spike Lee comes armed with an incendiary political passion.

But in these divisive times, he’s not alone. And in the end “BlacKkKlansman” may be preaching to a choir that’s already pissed off and has marched out the door.

Still, it should be noted that the movie tells an incredible story that is absolutely true—with a few bits here and there that are made up.

On The Morning Mix, John and Christie's in-studio musical guest is Shannon Runyon.  They interview Fuzz Feddersen of Flying Ace All-Star show and Joey Traum of Reggae Rise Up Festival. All that plus a full rundown of weekend events in our area, so you know what’s going on for entertainment in our community.
