Schools need to help instill values in our children

APTOPIX Oregon School Shooting-11

I look at what's happening in our country and ask myself, What has changed? It certainly doesn't take a rocket scientist to see. Now many may disagree, but I remember when I was in school there was still things like opening prayer and the pledge of allegiance. Was that wrong? Look what we have come...


Harvey's experience dealing with Weber County Commission gives him the edge

Legislators come out in support of Jim Harvey

I am bit disappointed in the Standard-Examiner's decision to endorse Caitlin Gochnour for the Weber County Commission. She and Jim Harvey are good candidates, but the background of dealing with the Weber County Commission for more than 23 years has to tilt the balance to Harvey. Also, if elected,...


Jim Harvey was vetted and deserves to be county commissioner

We should pray for the president

APTOPIX Nightclub Shooting What to Call It-12
