Sitting during anthem no way to protest, show patriotism

Sept 11 Anniversary-12

Recently we, in this country, have forgotten how much this great country affords us. We have NFL players who disrespect the country that allowed them to attend a University for free due to their athleticism. Then if they're good enough, they move on to the NFL and acquire millions of dollars for...

The rivalry between Fremont and Roy High School is ridiculous

MH 091616 Roy Fremont 19-1

What is this ridiculous rivalry between Fremont High and Roy High? Roy’s homecoming was such a fun event; and topping off with the football game last Friday night was awesome, and the win over Fremont was the icing on the cake.  Our Roy community has great participation with the high...

Trump literally incapable of uttering a true statement

Campaign 2016 Trump Washington

No one (who has been listening to both candidates) can legitimately claim that Mr. Donald J. Trump's actual spoken words have not been strident but also outrageous, self-revealing and self-destructive. Then, when questioned about those recorded and videotaped words, he and his yes-men and women...

Liberals refuse to be honest, discuss black crime

APTOPIX Ferguson Michael Brown

E. Kent Winward's guest commentary on Sept. 11 sounded good, but as with Hillary Clinton's rhetoric is almost meaningless (”Are we the land of the free or the land of the jailed?”). He skips along the surface relative to the problem of deaths of young black men by law enforcement...

Headers need to be outlawed in youth soccer

MH 091516 Bonneville Woods Cross 23-14

Why are we allowing school children to head the ball in soccer? I am appalled at school boards for allowing it. I am appalled at parents for allowing their children to do it. Whose crazy idea was it to head the ball? No other sport involving a ball does it. We should be doing all we can to protect...

Public Lands Initiative will spoil Utah's beauty, kill tourism

Bishop hopes for finality with PLI bill

When you travel, where are your go-to places? I’ll bet they’re not big oil rigs next to red rock mountains. Not in overgrazed areas of Utah, either. You don't linger in those places. People from all over the world come to Utah. Tourism is a moneymaker! If we destroy our...

Ogden resident predicts Biden will replace Clinton as Democratic nominee

APTOPIX Campaign 2016 Clinton-6

I am a Republican and supporter of Donald Trump for president. Hillary Clinton has been nominated as the Democratic nominee. However, the polls all show her ratings dropping. I believe that Mrs. Clinton will be indicted, claim health failure, or have some other excuse for dropping out of the race....

As our forests burn, animals are moving closer to Utah cities, homes

Cougar permits

How long will it take for the Utah Board of Wildlife to figure out our forests keep burning? Where do you think our wildlife is going to eat and what will be on its menu? I’m pretty concerned for our safety as wildlife gets closer to our cities, schools and homes. I was out fishing with a...
