Mar 4 2014 - 9:05am

You know the old saying: "Two wrongs don't make a right, but three lefts do."Yeah? Well, what if you don't need to make a right?

Awards go to lawmakers, but not for their great performances

Don Porter
Feb 28 2014 - 3:05pm

Tonight, I'll probably tune into the Oscar telecast. Maybe you will, too. But it's a ritual of habit more than affection, since I am so often disappointed in movies.Indeed, I have come to regard most motion pictures with about the same dissatisfaction as I do politics -- especially in Utah.

JaNae Francis
Feb 27 2014 - 2:39pm

VIDEO: Jazz will watch to see interest paid in Hayward

Jim Burton, Standard-Examiner columnist
Apr 17 2014 - 7:28am

Gordon Hayward is such a good guy I think I'd fall over backward if I ever heard him snap at a reporter, even one who'd just asked one of those awkward "if you could be a tree, what kind of a tree would you be" type questions.Still, the Utah Jazz veteran has a funny way of chuckling when he's asked a question that strikes him as strange, or silly...

Sorry commissioners Bell, Gibson, SE just tells your stories

Don Porter, Standard-Examiner contributor
Apr 16 2014 - 7:26am

I began studying journalism in 1981 at Utah State University. I spent the following 27 years as a reporter and/or editor in the business -- about 24 years of it at this newspaper.

I just can't decide which was the most disturbing.On Friday, reporter Ben Lockhart's 1A story detailed a number of Bountiful schools that were briefly locked down after a man called a suicide hotline and said he had a firearm and was thinking of taking his own life. The lockdown was strictly precautionary, but...

Mark Saal, Standard-Examiner staff
Apr 12 2014 - 3:49pm

These days, living across the green, hanging out with an overly jolly gang and possessing a yell that rings through the mountains near and far isn't all that it's cracked up to be.Because, frankly, it's just not a particularly good time to be a Utah Man.Speaking as a proud University of Utah graduate (class of '84), I fully acknowledge that the...
