Romney comments include dire warning

I read carefully the article in Friday's Standard Examiner, Page A-9, entitled 'Romney Predicts 4 More Years for Trump', and double checked with other sources that Romney actually made the 2 comments I find so interesting; the sources validated the legitimacy of the reported comments. 1. He...

Another view of Memorial day

For many of our Utah families the holiday weekend started on Thursday or Friday, when the graves were decorated, including for us, a son and nephew who served but came home. TCM had a steady stream of war stories – stories of bravery and sacrifice at home as well as abroad. These lasted...

Death by gun problem is a human problem

Kay Combe joins John Reynolds and me (and many, many more folks) in agreeing that our death by gun problem is fundamentally a human problem; evil or imbalanced people who get their hands on guns. Reality is that we don't know how, nor do we have the will (Constitutional issues and huge amounts of...

Time to clean house in Davis County

I know that we are getting a new sheriff in the county but the buck shouldn't stop there. We (citizens of Davis County) need to clean house and replace both county commissioners that are up for re-election. Because apparently the current commissioners were either in awe of the sheriff or they had...

Nation's problems are us, not guns

In doing some research on guns, the 10MM Glock came on the market in 1982. Using a Glock in 2007, 25 years after first manufacturing, the Virginia Tech shooting occurred. The Bushmaster XM15 E2S was designed in 1980. Using a Bushmaster, in 2002, 22 years after coming on the market, two men went on...

Kennedy will support President Trump

We need a more conservative U.S. Senate that will support President Trump. I do not believe Mitt Romney is the right person. Mike Kennedy is only 49. His background is a Family Doctor & Attorney and proven conservative State legislator for six years. He is perfect for all conservative values. I...

A fitting tribute at Vietnam Memorial Wall

I visited the moving wall on Memorial Day 2018. I went in 2008 but I didn't handle it well then. Five of my Ribault High School classmates from Jacksonville, Florida are on that wall. My wife's brother died from Agent Orange in 1976. I handled it a little better this time. I wore a Jungle Fatigue...

She's not supporting Mitt Romney

Dear Mitt, I supported you for President and cried when you lost, but I will not be voting for you to be Utah’s senator. My concern is that you seem to say whatever works for wherever you are running. You say you are pro-life, but weren’t always; you say you are strong on the 2nd...

Supporting candidates based on their views

Ever since I became qualified to vote, I have found my views to be more in line with those of the Republican Party. However, in recent years serious questions have arisen. I was appalled by the treatment Jan Zogmaister received from her co-commissioners and reportedly at the convention. Both have...

The Meaning of Memorial Day

My trek to Utah from Virginia brought more culture shock than some of my travels abroad. A major observation was how Utahans celebrate holidays. I had never seen houses and yards all out decorated for Halloween nor Christmas lights that stayed lit through January. Fireworks on July 24 were also a...
