To fight racism, attend rallies, talk with people, listen

Confederate Monument Protest Utah-4

Racism, hatred and evil are real. I saw it, felt it, and breathed its awful air Monday night at the One Utah Rally in Salt Lake hosted by the Utah GOP and Utah Democratic Party. A handful of people were there who have obviously been deceived by the lies of racism, but they were serious and...

Democrats need to start rebuilding their party

Congress Health Overhaul Harris

Democrats, you can come out of your hiding places. The election is over, and you lost. This is the time to start rebuilding the Democratic Party. While President Donald Trump is dismantling the Republican Party, you have an opportunity to reorganize your party. No more promises. The people want to...

Liberal media ignoring Trump's many accomplishments

Trump departs

Recent letters to the editor extolled the accomplishments of President Obama and claimed that President Trump had nothing to show for his first six months. Let the folks still living in Obama’s “Camelot” take off their rose-colored glasses and face reality....

Kudos to those responsible for flowers in downtown Ogden

Petunia Hanging Basket

I am writing to express my appreciation and thanks to all those people responsible for placing the hanging baskets of flowers and pots around the downtown area.

Ogden Pioneer Stadium mural defaced

My husband, Newell Nelson, painted a mural of a Dolly Varden trout on the south side of the Ogden Pioneer Stadium. It was done in 2008 upon request of Ogden City Police to try to help curb the amount of graffiti being done by random persons. There are about 25 murals in all. Many have been...

Either Trump gets rid of Breitbart staffers, or we get rid of Trump

Confederate Monument Protests Photo Gallery Car

Having just watched the news on TV, I am about to throw up. This is like Nazi Germany in the 1930s. The white nationalists (supremacists), KKK, anti-Semites and the rest of the Breitbart family are causing havoc and death in Charlottesville, Virginia. And guess what? President Donald Trump has two...

Sick and suffering Utahns deserve access to medical marijuana

Medical Marijuana Utah-5

Who are these people standing in the way of these poor people in their terrible pain and health issues? If it were you, would you deny them relief from their terrible, unceasing pain? It should be illegal to deny these people their rights to purchase a drug that would help them. Legalizing medical...

Those 5 million illegal voters must be out there somewhere

Trump voter fraud

I read with interest Mark Saal's excellent column on his recent girls camp adventure (“Girls camp: First-timer's experience filled with food, crafts and the venerated snipe hunt,” Aug. 8). The part about the snipe hunt caught my eye and I was wondering if the girls, although...

Stephens listens to all sides, supports downtown development

City Council approves new logo

It has been my pleasure to work as a business owner in Ogden with Doug Stephens over the past 10-plus years. We started our business when we purchased the Deseret Gymnasium on 25th Street in 1993 and operated as Total Fitness Center. We changed the name to Gold’s Gym in 1999 and have been in...

Water customers without sprinkler systems are subsidizing people with big homes

BS 031115 Water Meter 04-1

I’m a pensioner who has faced another increase in my Pineview Water Systems bill. My charges have gone from $85 in 2001 to $300 in 2016 and will most likely be more next year. I am at a loss as to their means of charging us. I do not have a meter, which we all should have as the user should...
