Letters

Letter: Supporting Benitez for city council because character matters

I have known Sebastian Benitez for over a decade. During this time, I have witnessed his compassion for the less fortunate. It shouldn’t be a surprise that he wants to run for the Ogden City Council. Few people spend the time campaigning for projects left unfinished in the community. ...

Letter: An option for politically homeless voters

News sources have reported on voters’ widespread dissatisfaction with their current party affiliation. Many people have left their parties, citing some version of “I didn’t leave the party; the party left me,” or “it no longer reflects my values.” Newly unaffiliated voters might be ...

Letter: Discouraged by protest outside McKay-Dee Hospital

A large group of people wearing hospital scrubs, PPE and halloween masks was protesting covid vaccines on Saturday, Oct. 16, at the corner of 42nd and Jackson Ave., the entrance to Intermountain Health Care's McKay-Dee Hospital. I cannot express how sad this made me. I have always felt Ogden ...

Letter: Why do Latter-day Saints still feel like they should live in Utah?

It boggles my mind how Latter-day Saints feel like they should live in Utah. For instance, LDS will move to Utah even though LDS are not commanded to relocate to the Beehive State like they used to be. (From my LDS mission, I recall LDS moving from New Jersey to Utah.) The Book of Mormon even ...

Letter: Unhelpful service in visit to IRS office

I went to the local IRS office for information regarding my long delayed tax refund. There I encountered the most belligerent, antagonistic, unhelpful "public servant" you can imagine. After I had waited an hour and a half, noon came and one of the two men there left, evidently for lunch. I ...

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

A baby — so precious, so small, so innocent. A gift from God — treated like garbage — ripped apart, slaughtered for profit, greed. What have they done to be treated this way? They are being sacrificed for carelessness or lust! Fresh parts bring in more money — pain, suffering of an ...
