I'm perplexed. Isn't Utah County the State's Republican hotbet?
Why would the likely Republican majority in Highland support such an
anti-business type of law? Why not let the free market dictate? If the town is

avoid patronage of local businesses that open on Sunday anyway? I mean lets be
honest, no one is traveling to Highland to shop, not with nearby Lehi or

Another time the predominate religion forces their belief on the public. I will
never spend a penny in Highland.

Finally a city with some guts.
@ParkCityAggieYou're confusing social issues with economic

you're looking at it as an economic issue. I'm not blaming you - most
liberals don't understand the distinction.
