Utah lawmakers want to sell off public lands, and it's hurting our pocketbooks

Outdoor Retailer Show-3 Herbert

I write to highlight and oppose actions by our Legislature, and our congressional representative, to do away with or shrink Bears Ears National Monument and Grand Staircase, Escalante Monument. These lands will benefit Utah’s lucrative outdoor tourism industry and be a legacy for generations...

Utah needs a law to help terminally ill patients transition

Trump Supreme Court Right to Die-4

After watching my brother spend 12 days in the ICU of a local hospital slowly deteriorating in health daily and finally passing on the 12th day, I have to question why Utah won't pass a law like many of the states around us to help terminal patients in their transition in death. Is it because it...

Sucking it up won't stop Trump from attacking the environment, civil rights

Presidents Day Protests Salt Lake City

In response to Suzanne Alder’s letter (“Protesters, it's time to put on your big boy and big girl clothes,” Feb. 15 Standard-Examiner), I would like to let her know that the protests against Donald Trump have been mostly peaceful protests. I, and all people I know, do not agree...

Outdoor Retailer Show-3

With the announcement that the Outdoor Industry Association is leaving Salt Lake City, it's important that Weber County residents express our continued support for our outdoor industry.

Republicans obstructed Obama, but Democrats are supposed to move on?

Trump Resistance-Social Media

The Republican president is what he is. But don't suggest that people who don't care for him and/or his tactics are unreasonable (“Protesters, it's time to put on your big boy and big girl clothes,” Susan Alder, Feb. 15 Standard-Examiner). It is difficult to align oneself with braggart...

Left and its immigration policies are responsible for the decline of America

Secondary BS 021617 Betos 02-9

Can we talk? Of all the irrational and destructive trends gripping America in recent years, from ever-expanding government funded by unrepayable debt, to a godless culture that glorifies wanton sexual anarchy, to universities acting as far-left brainwashing centers, none is more disastrous,...

Find whoever's responsible for killing family's pet horse, Cinnamon

Horse shooting 6 Cinnamon

As a Standard-Examiner reader and longtime subscriber, I am for the most part impressed with the caring and integrity of the editor. All in all, the paper is informative and involved in our community happenings. I do pray and hope reporters are not going to stop looking for the heartless person(s)...

Utah's GOP lawmakers aren't going to listen to anyone with opposing views

Chaffetz Comes Home-1 Sablan

While interesting, Carol McNamara’s column regarding protest versus more effective ways of communicating with political rivals strikes me as incurably naïve (“Millennials may be the key to breaking through America's political impasse,” Feb. 14 Standard-Examiner). Case in...

Trump's wall along the border with Mexico won't work

The Week That Was in Latin America Photo Gallery Wall

I lived in Arizona for three years. My oldest daughter was born there. I think President Trump’s wall will not work. The tunnels are already there. I know of many other places to cross the border between the United States and Mexico. You can see how the drug wars have been going on for years....

Protesters, it's time to put on your big boy and big girl clothes

Trump Travel Ban Protest White House

The election is over. If your candidate didn’t win, get over it. There is always a winner and a loser. That’s life. Being a hater, destroying things and causing mayhem is not a peaceful protest. The Constitution does not say we have the right to violent and lawless protests. We all need...
