This week the Utah NOW team travels down to Spring City for an on-location edition of Utah NOW.
Years ago the interstate bypassed Spring City here in Sanpete County, which didn't do much for the economy, but it did preserve the authentic character and the buildings of this pioneer settlement. This week on Utah NOW we're profiling this unique community. We're talking about its art, its history, and its challenges for the future.
The Friends of Historic Spring City website is dedicated to preserving, protecting and promoting the historic environment of the Spring City area.
Joseph and Lee Udall Bennion's website, Horseshoe Mountain Pottery, features their studios and journals.
I watched you show this evening supposedly about Spring City. The first ten minutes were on Spring City and then the rest was on an artist in Spring City but it never related to Spring City. I have been on tours in Spring City and I was very disappointed in the program. It is very unfortunate that you advertised the program like it was about Spring City. I thought it was misrepresented.

We just watched Utah NOW and I must say those of us in town were a little disappointed that the real gist of this town was not represented. It became more about Lee and Joe Benion for at least 2/3 of the program. They are a part of this town but they are not really a significant part of whatâ€™s going on here. We wish Doug could have represented the town a little more accurately. Iâ€™d appreciate hearing back from Doug in the future.
