In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, Bill Martin
was one of several hundred survivors who found themselves on a flight to Utah.
From a Deseret Morning News story
by Angie Welling:
What he found, he said, was friendly people in a clean, beautiful city with a healthy respect for architecture — important for a man who made his living in that field. "I was determined that Salt Lake was the right place."
Bill talked to his nephew, Marty Smith
, who had found refuge from Hurricane Katrina in Memphis. Smith decided to visit.
"It's absolutely gorgeous," Smith said of Salt Lake City. "The people have been very, very nice."
Both of them have decided to stay.
We sincerely appreciate Bill and Marty - and all visitors who recognize the natural beauty, caliber of our people, healthy economy, and stellar quality of life in Utah.
