Today is the 17-year anniversary of the terror attacks on the U.S. now known as 9/11. Park City High School students were able to hear from a NYPD first responder who was at the world trade center that day.

Park City resident Scott Zink spent nearly three hours telling two groups of Park City High students his story as a member of the New York Police Departments Emergency Service Unit on September 11, 2001. Zink had just finished a shift and was just about to go home when he heard news that a plane had struck the north tower.

A representative of the ATF is scheduled to appear at Park City High School next month to talk to parents about the Dark Web—a phrase that has become familiar here over the past two years. The speech is being presented as part of the Front Line, Blue Line program.

Nearly two years ago, the local community was shaken by the news that two 13-year-old best friends attending Treasure Mountain Junior High had overdosed on the synthetic drug “pink” obtained through the Dark Web.
