Our problems could be the result of our lack of reverence for God's name

We are supporting Caitlin Gochnour for Weber County commissioner, and we strongly urge you to vote for her in the upcoming Republican primary election.

Build toll booths to raise money for roads in Washington Terrace

Toll Booth

Washington Terrace is a bedroom community. We don’t have much of a tax base. Our roads were never designed to support the traffic that we have seen the last few years. I would suggest that the mayor of Washington Terrace send a letter to the surrounding cities asking them to start...

Caitlin Gochnour kicks off campaign

The opportunity to serve the people of Weber County as commissioner for eight years, from 1998-2006, was a tremendous honor.

Public Lands Plan

It’s a mystery to me why so many Utahns commit political suicide by voting against themselves. How? By electing representatives who refuse to vote for things the majority of citizens want.

Teacher Racial Slur-2

With all due respect to teachers and especially our students, we are too quick to use racial slurs.

Our problems could be the result of our lack of reverence for God's name

LDS Temple Moroni

Oh, the power of a word. There is much to do of late about the power one word has (”South Ogden Jr. High teacher violated policy by using racial slur,” May 4 Standard-Examiner). I never cease to be amazed! When African-Americans are offended by a word, they do something about it. Christians say...

Trump's rise is similar to Hitler's

GOP 2016 Trump Christie

I see the latest Fox News poll shows Donald Trump leading Hillary Clinton. I've often wondered how Adolf Hitler was able to dupe the Germans into putting him in power. Now we are witnessing the same sort of thing here in the United States of America! Who would have ever believed it? Gullibility...
