Letter: More help needed for vulnerable patients

I would like to know why doctors do not really care enough about their patients. The mentally and physically ill, poor and homeless get left by the wayside. I guess it all comes down to money or what kind of expensive health insurance you have. The doctors do not listen. A 15 minute ...

Letter: Reflecting on Orrin Hatch’s political legacy

Recently in the news it was reported that the new soon-to-be released book written by Anita Hill talks about the confirmation hearings for Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas several years ago. As people may recall, Anita Hill underwent brutal questioning by former U.S. Senator Orrin Hatch of ...

Letter: Ogden grant program bringing community together

Historically the days of our deepest darkest division were often followed by the dawn of progression and restoration. Support for the Civil Rights Act was just above 50% leading up to its passage, it doesn’t get more divided than that. So is the current state of our political polarization a ...

Letter: Driver concerned by motorcyclists’ dangerous behavior

Recently I was headed northward on Wall Ave. I was about to turn left to go to Walmart. As I was beginning to proceed, a motorcycle came up ahead of me from the left and another motorcycle came up ahead of me from the right; and this being in the same turning lane with my car. The bike on the ...

Letter: Whichever way you look at it, abortion is murder

Letter: Disappointed in Moore’s recitation of GOP talking points

Representative Blake Moore’s Logan townhall was a disappointment. I thought he was there to listen to his constituents and answer their questions, but I left after only one question and 40 minutes because I was tired of listening to him recite the typical Republican talking points. A friend ...

Letter: With rights come responsibilities

For weeks now we hear people clamoring for their rights when faced with mandates. Don’t they realize that with rights come responsibilities? If we “love our neighbors as ourselves” shouldn’t we be concerned about their welfare? But no! For sixty years we have been bombarded with ...

Letter: More to crime spike than sheriff lets on

I write in response to the October 5, 2021 article, “State Crime Report Shows Increase….” Violent crime is up and this is a national trend. But, contrary to the unsupported assertions by Cache County Sheriff Chad Jensen, there is no evidence whatsoever that the statistical increases are ...

Letter: The power to act

Recent articles and commentaries published in the Opinion section of the Standard-Examiner cause this septuagenarian to wonder if any of the authors are aware of the opportunity choice gives them? Challenges present opportunities to overcome them. The lure of this appears everywhere in our ...
