Utahns should look at Trump's rudeness as one of his strengths

I see that Donald Trump polled fourth among Utah Republicans, and I don’t understand it. We need a president who is not afraid to make hard decisions for the benefit of the country. For once there is a candidate who will not be in the back pocket of special interests because he has his own...

Walk the walk, pedal the bike for a healthier Earth

Most “voices” discussing the need for more and better mass transit and city walking/bicycling ability are, to put it bluntly, propagandists, concealing a full-speed-ahead culture of an individual motor vehicle for everyone 16 and older. What’s missing are the many voices of those...

Reader grateful to staff, diners at Ruby River for help during emergency

New Year’s Eve, we were with our friends — eight of us — for a pleasant evening at Ruby River. Shortly after we began eating, my husband had a mini stroke and was transported to the hospital by ambulance. I would like to thank the staff of Ruby River for their kindness and helpful...

Why do we need expanded background checks? Visit a gun show

I’ve been out to the gun show at the Golden Spike Event Center numerous times. On virtually every occasion, there was someone — sometimes several people — wandering around in the crowd with a rifle slung over his shoulder, a piece of paper taped to the barrel saying, “For...

Columnist was wrong; we are not all "children of God"

I agree with columnist Teresa Hislop that “Am I good enough?” is a flawed question, but for the opposite reason (“Good versus good enough,” Dec. 29). God is love (1 John 4.8 -10), and his mercy is not dependent on any merit he perceives in us. While we were still his enemies,...

"The Revenant" is a remake of a 1971 Richard Harris film

I thought “The Revenant” looked familiar when I viewed the trailer. It is a remake of the movie “Man in the Wildernes,” released in 1971, staring Richard Harris and John Huston. The original is a great movie and I'm sure the special effects make “The Revenant”...

Ogden isn't keeping its trailheads open, and no one knows why

Ogden is a hiking, biking, running and skiing town. What happened to this winter hiking, biking, running, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing town? Failing to keep the trailheads open creates a non-accessible trailhead along with unsafe conditions for parking. After calling a number of city...

Pension bill is a play to win military votes at taxpayer expense

I have to disagree with Rep. Lee Perry on his proposal to end taxes on military pensions in Utah. He said it was a way to thank Utah veterans. What about all the thousands of veterans that did not stay in to retire, but still served their time in hell? Some even gave their all. Don’t they...

More atrocities committed by the godless than the godly

The Nov. 12, 2015, letter “Killing in the name of God never stops,” from M.J. Ogden, needs rebutting. In his letter, Ogden first rehashes a number of heinous actions taken “in the name of God.” He then concludes that the world would have been better served had the idea of a supreme God never...
