I ran for mayor because I care about my family and community. As a longtime resident of Ogden, I’ve watched us tackle the challenges that a growing city faces with a grit that’s unique to us. That isn’t to say there haven’t been growing pains. I threw my hat in the ring because I was concern…

Sen. Mitt Romney’s attacks on President Trump as he performs his duties under the U.S. Constitution are appalling. My career was spent as a corporate officer in a U.S. energy company regulated by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). I was involved in required filings made to th…

In response to ‘Title IX’ letter published in the Standard-Examiner, I appreciate your letter, but I didn’t find going to school in the ‘60s as repressive as your representation. I was in college prep in high school, fully intended and was encouraged to have a career in science, went to a fo…

It has recently come to my attention that the B-47 jet bomber at the Hill Air Force Base Museum is slated to be scrapped. The aircraft is in need of repair and restoration and the $250,000 needed to save it could not be raised. This is a sad day for our community. This is one of only 23 rema…

WASHINGTON — President Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy, in which he asked him for that “favor” of getting political dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter, has convinced House Democrats to throw caution to the winds and go for President Don…

Often times we don’t realize that we’re in the midst of “the good old days” until they’re past. We’re here with Weber State football. They’ve never been this good for this long and they need our support to keep it going. Please make an effort to get up to Stewart Stadium this season. With th…

It took a lot of courage to speak out about Trump’s behavior. I’m extremely proud of Sen. Romney for putting our country over party and supporting our Constitution and democracy. Trump is a habitual liar and conspiracy theorist at its best. Sen. Romney showed his moral and ethical value to o…

On Oct. 4, Utah Sen. Mitt Romney spoke out about the president’s unusual request for China to assist in opposition research against Joe Biden, the leading Democratic candidate for the 2020 election. As of this writing, Romney is one of only four Republican senators to express his concern abo…

Proposition 3 again? Yep! But this time it’s only for Weber County voters and asks “Shall a study committee be appointed to consider and possibly recommend a change in Weber County’s form of government?.”

How extremely fun to be President Trump today! He gleefully runs off to events like the UN Climate Actions Summit and disrupts them with his authority and whimsical speeches. He knows several things about life on planet America that serve him well.

Don't let someone else choose your city elected officials! For the recent city primary elections, only 30.89% of registered Weber County voters bothered to vote. In Davis County, only 29.3% of registered voters voted. Both counties voted by mail, the easiest possible method. Have a voice in …

When we hear the words, “It’s the most wonderful time of the year!” we know Andy Williams’ cheerful voice is singing about Christmas. Only he shouldn’t. Because the most wonderful time of the year is right now — fall time.

Most Utah residents would describe the state as beautiful, safe and family oriented. With lower than average crime rates and a bustling housing market, what could be wrong with our magnificent state? As a young female college student pursuing a degree in social work, my hope is to enlighten …

The Sept. 30 letter from Jo Stephens has expressed the pure essence of Donald J. Trump's presidency adequately and succinctly, in the best way that could ever be done. Indeed it further states my own sentiments exactly for these past three years of political upheaval in this nation. That is …

Sen. Mitt Romney is busy chasing headlines, saying he is "concerned" about President Donald Trump's phone call with the president of Ukraine. Fine, Romney dislikes Trump. But why has he not shown any interest in the conduct of Joe Biden? Biden is on video bragging about his time as vice pres…

Recently our high school celebrated the 30th anniversary of girls soccer. I have fond memories of coaching my daughters and watching them play on the high school teams. What they got from competitive sports was toughness and the courage to fight for their place in a man’s world. They all wan…

WASHINGTON — The rough transcription of that July 25 phone call between President Donald Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy confirms that Trump is at it again. He has invited another a foreign power to meddle in another American election, this time in his bid for a second term…

If you open a newspaper or turn on the television news, there is a good chance that you will hear someone use the word socialism. In some cases, Bernie Sanders describes himself as a democratic socialist. In other cases, the term is used simply to smear a person or program. If a Republican c…

In 2017, according to the U.S. Census American Community Survey, one in every six U.S. homes did not have a conventional home broadband connection (cable, DSL or fiber), or a satellite Internet link, or even a mobile data account for a smartphone or tablet. The numbers in Utah are similar wi…

In the classic 1979 comedy “The Jerk,” Steve Martin plays a very dumb guy who often misses the point. In one scene, while he’s working as a gas station attendant, an assassin tries to kill him with a high-powered rifle. When the bullets start whizzing past his head and popping holes in some …

I'm from a long line of horsemen, cattlemen and rodeo cowboys. As a kid, Native Americans came from all over the west to trade quarter horses with my father, Marv Dunbar. Dressed in colorful regalia, they proudly participated in both the Cache County and Box Elder rodeo, many parades, Pionee…

After reading in the paper Gov. Herbert calls to scrap medical marijuana system, I must say it shows how inept our lawmakers in this state truly are! This has become a joke.

If I find a magic lamp, rub it and a genie pops out, I will wish for a president who can unite the country instead of pitting us against one another — who will protect us from attack by foreign powers and domestic terrorists. Who keeps promises, pledges and oaths. Who is a student of history…
