Amber Willard TOOELE, UTAH -- Tooele, Utah, is an unlikely place for most Glendalians to visit. About 40 miles south of Salt Lake City, the town is nestled in a flat valley with snow-capped mountains all around. The winter wind, often accompanied by blowing snow, howls through the town of a few thousand residents. State Highway 36, where it runs through Tooele, is called Main Street. Along it are most of the town's businesses -- a Super Wal-Mart, an Applebee's, even a Hollywood Video with a Christmas tree lot out front.

Editor's note: While Patrick Caneday takes some time off, we're running some of his choices for re-publication. This column was first published Aug. 29, 2009. I was feeling rather morose the other day. Kind of pathetic, lowly, defeated and self-loathing. There was a dull pain in my chest that I attribute to being unsatisfied with my job, having not left a significant mark upon this world by the age of 42, having neither made the best-seller list - which would actually require writing a book - nor being a millionaire and owning a vacation home in either Cambria or Palm Springs.
