I went to a well known pizza place for takeout. I didn't see 1 mask from anyone oops only me. I'm afraid the mask mandate was lifted to soon. Hey citizens use your brains. I'm elderly and work in a high risk environment. I have not been sick since we started wearing masks. Before I was sick …

I am ashamed of our legislators. There have been multiple mass shootings, and we all pray for the victims, watch interviews of the survivors and lower the flags as if these people were heroes. They were not heroes; they were victims. Their right to life has been snuffed so that gun advocates…

Individual gun rights should never be confused with Second Amendment rights. Ratification of the Bill of Rights (BR), including the Second Amendment, was completed Dec. 15, 1791, when Virginia, the 11th state, approved it. Did that adoption of the BR guarantee an individual right to gun owne…

You know how sometimes couples who have been together for a long time can finish each other’s sentences? I used to think that was charming. After a year of COVID togetherness, forget finishing simple sentences. We can complete whole days of each other’s conversations. Maybe even ALL possible…

As Provo continues to deal with the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s important to recognize that other emergencies, such as wildfires, can still occur throughout the year — often with little or no warning.

There’s something ironic about a Boomer sitting in a Zoom meeting talking to a 20-something professional about the Boomer’s 86-year-old mother’s needs. That thought went through my mind as I sought answers to some challenges my aging mother faces in her assisted living setting. I’m in the me…

We live in challenging times. Faced with a global crisis, we continue to experience the pandemic’s impacts on our communities, our economy and our way of life.

I'm concerned like others for our country. We have been sucked in under the disguise of equality. Take from the rich and give to the poor, right? That's not what happens. It never has. This system cannot support itself, taxes continue rising. It's the middle class that bears the burden and c…
