Letter: Utah’s public schools are not Sunday schools

On Friday, the Utah House voted 56-13 to pass HB514, a bill that would give school districts the option to help provide emotional and spiritual support to children. If the bill passes the Senate, Governor Cox has signaled his eagerness to sign it. The presence would threaten constitutional ...

Letter: Utah Republicans’ questionable Trump endorsement

100% of the Utah Republican legislators, including the Senate President and House Speaker, just endorsed Donald Trump in a proclamation they all signed declaring he best reflects the Utah Republican Party “core values”. This is a man that has been found to have committed substantial fraud, ...

Letter: Response to school absenteeism guest commentary

I am writing in response to the recent guest commentary regarding chronic absenteeism in schools. While I agree that chronic absenteeism is a pressing concern, I find the argument in favor of micro-schools to be misguided and overlooking the valuable services already provided by local public ...

Letter: Join us at conference examining Utah’s climate

For half a century, I've been a relentless advocate for embracing the findings of climate science. I've noticed that, over the years, there's less outright denial of climate science but more what I consider misguided pragmatism.  They ask, "Why invest in cleaning up our greenhouse gas ...

Letter: Begging lawmakers not to punish adults via vaping ban

Vote no on the vaping ban!! It is absolutely ridiculous that responsible adults can't use flavored vaping products and would have to result back to cigarettes because parents can't control their children and monitor them. When are we going to stop punishing the masses because parents have ...

Letter: My thoughts about present dilemmas and possible solutions

Biden's age and abilities: the White House physician (or other qualified doctor) can test for dementia and dispel rumors. My mother had dementia 20-plus years ago; the test was simple. As a Registered Nurse that worked in hospitals, I checked acuity every time I worked. Trump's verbal acumen: ...

Letter: Vote to save America from these lying, corrupt politicians

If you want to save America, you must vote. Some history: On Jan. 23, 1845, congress decided that “all” national elections would be held on the first Tuesday after the first Monday of Nov. I don’t know personally if that has ever been modified. If not, the Left has been election cheating ...

Letter: Confused Utah leadership censures Cline but supports Trump

I'd like to support and compliment Gov. Cox for signing legislation to censure Natalie Cline for her insulting post questioning the gender of a high school basketball player. A person in the role of public leadership, as Kline was on the State Board of Education, has a responsibility to make ...

Letter: Thankful for Rep. Moore’s appearance, update on Congress

I would like to publicly thank The Honorable Blake Moore, our First District Congressman, for attending our monthly meeting in February to give us an update on what he is doing and what is happening in Congress at the present time. The meeting was well attended and he gave an interesting ...

Letter: Shouldn’t felonies disqualify the commander-in-chief?

How is it that an ordinary citizen is not allowed to join our country's military with a felony on their record, yet a former president with 4 indictments and 91 felony counts can run for the position of commander-in-chief of the armed forces? This doesn't make sense to me; does it make sense to ...
