  • I spent so many summer days swimming and adventuring down at the Sanpitch river. One of my favorite things about growing up in Fairview. (Hailey, 9 years)
  • Was hit by a fire truck in front of the chief of police of Fairview last year. Was refused medical attention, then when I asked for the insurance to pay my medical bills was told by the same officer that no such thing happened and that I was a liar. Yet he in front of witnesses got into the fire fighters door and face telling him he would be arrested of he ever did that again. F*ck this city. Run by corrupt city officials. (Ethan, 13 years)
