Clemens fighting to make meds more affordable

BN 032216 Democratic Caucus 06-3

Richard Bolin's Oct. 19 letter hit the nail right on the head (”Clemens has the right skills, demeanor to replace Bishop in Congress”). Dr. Clemens has been my physician for many years and in addition to the other attributes pointed out by Mr. Bolin, Dr. Clemens has been fighting for...


Voters, you're being manipulated by the media on Hillary Clinton's behalf

Campaign 2016 Debate Trump Media

I read Don Porter’s Oct. 19 claim that “Voter fraud is a figment of Trump’s — and his mouthpieces’ — imagination.” If Porter had actually conducted adequate research, he would have discovered that rigged elections in this country occur. In the last half...


Trump's "special abilities" include insults and blabbering, young reader says

Campaign 2016 Trump Florida

I read the Oct. 14 letter about Donald Trump’s special abilities (”Trump has special abilities our country needs right now”). To say it kindly, it was wrong. If you look at the big picture, he’s good for nothing! Here are his abilities: • Coming up with insults....


Self-righteous Republicans need to look in the mirror

Campaign 2016 Romney

Our country is a mess right now. There is so much hate out there. Why can’t we be kind to one another, as Ellen DeGeneres tells us? I feel Republicans are showing their true colors when it comes to who they will support for president. Does it come down to whoever they like at the time, or who...


Clemens has the right skills, demeanor to replace Bishop in Congress

BS 101716 Bishop Clemens Debate 05 -3

I'd like to say a few words in support of Dr. Peter Clemens, who is running against Rob Bishop for the U.S. House in the 1st District. As one of his patients for the past several years, I've had an opportunity to judge his professionalism and demeanor. During my office visits with him, there was no...


Tanis Ukena and his family grateful for community's support

MH 101816 Tanis Ukena 02-1

I would like to thank the public for its love and support. My family and I have been astounded by your compassion and generosity. With the donations I've received so far, I am well on my way to being able to pay for my LDS mission. I would especially like to thank Dallas Butters and Kris Meyers,...


Ogden needs to deal with the underlying factors that drive homelessness

Secondary BZ 100616 Odyssey Elementary 03-2

I’d like to thank reporter Mark Saal for an informative story on homelessness in Ogden (”Problems with homeless vexing Ogden elementary school,” Oct. 17 Standard-Examiner). We as a country (and as a city) have never dealt with the largest underlying factors that drive...


Burton is a loyal advocate for teachers

Ogden School District Logo

This is a letter of endorsement on behalf of Sue Ann Burton, who is running for the District 5 position on the Ogden School Board. As educators ourselves, we are impressed with the qualifications she has for this position. Having been an educator, she is well aware of the educational system and how...


Nobody gave Trump the GOP nomination. He won it

Campaign 2016 Alfred Smith Dinner-1

The Republican Party didn’t give Donald Trump the presidential nomination. He was chosen by primary voters who are disgusted with Washington, D.C. The GOP is being divided by persons who don’t want a change. Third-party candidates hope to jump to the head of the line at the last minute...
