All businesses have the right to thrive, as long as they follow the rules

Sex Magazines Military Stores

The South Ogden City Council recently heard from the Young Automotive Group about a business they think should be encouraged to fail — adult businesses (“South Ogden City Council tables zoning for sexually oriented businesses,” May 17). The council may not know it, but there is a...


Realtor's column about stiletto heels wasn't sexist

Red stiletto heels

I am constantly amazed by the people who go through life desperately searching for something to be offended by. Sidney Adam’s letter to the editor claims that Jen Kirchhoefer’s column on the front page of the Home & Family section on May 12 was sexist because it used the word...


Trump White House generates friction

White House Credibility

Every machine has its friction. In the Trump White House, the friction has a machine. Don Lawson Brigham City


Donald Trump was chosen by God. Democrats need to leave him alone

Trump US Saudi Arabia medal

I would like to know why I don’t hear outrage over the Democratic onslaught of the Republican Party and the appointment of a special prosecutor for everything our president and others in the Republican Party do. I don’t even know what the Senate and the House are supposed to do anymore....


AHCA vote shows contempt for costituents

BS 101716 Bishop Clemens Debate 13 -11

Once again, our representatives in the U.S. House have demonstrated they do not care about their constituents. With their "aye" votes on the American Health Care Act, the horrendous Republican health care bill, they've let their true contempt for others show through. As written, this bill will...


Tell the Interior Secretary to leave Bears Ears alone

Zinke National Monuments

Thank you to the Standard-Examiner for the May 17 editorial, "Zinke heard one perspective on Bear Ears. Now he needs to hear yours.” We need to keep this important issue in the public eye. I believe two issues are important to stress in the often vitriolic conversations concerning our public...


We've lost our values since World War II

Supreme Court Abortion-2

Things are the same as they have always been. Nothing but technology has really changed. Today's politics, religion, and culture have been basically the same for generations in America. There is nothing new under the sun. These things may be true in the long run. But in the short run, much has...


Realtor's stiletto column belonged in the Opinion section

The article "Can you trust a Realtor in stilettos?" on the front page of Home & Family in the May 12, 2017, edition of your newspaper is extremely offensive, misleading and not news. The title itself is very sexist, and leads one to believe the article would be sexist. Once reading, it's seem...


North Ogden's Taylor deserves credit for trying to shake up UTA

BN 011415 N.Ogden Monroe 11-10 Taylor

My hat's off to North Ogden Mayor Brent Taylor. He is trying to make the Utah Transit Authority a better organization and more responsible to the taxpaying public (”North Ogden mayor calls for UTA board leadership to step down,” May 3 Standard-Examiner). But apparently the only...


Hatch and Lee need to strengthen the ACA, not replace it

Election Utah-8 Lee

Our Utah senators should protect and strengthen the Affordable Care Act, not vote to replace it with Trumpcare. Members of my family would have had no coverage without the ACA, and if Trumpcare becomes the law of the land their coverage will be reduced or eliminated. And there are so many living...
