I was happy to read about the upgrade planned for the Treehouse Museum in Ogden. My 4-year-old grandson, Dax, and I have been attending regularly for the past two years. I will be signing us up for our third year soon.

Once again Utah has taken the path of least resistance. Though we talk about clean air and quality of life, the truth is that we don’t want to undergo the challenges to make it happen. Rather than follow EPA guidelines to clean up our polluted air, we pursue litigation. This is the current i…

The military has warned us that climate change is dangerous on many fronts, including direct impacts on our military infrastructure and the destabilizing forces causing conflict and migration abroad. Air Force Secretary Heather Wilson announced the need for $4.9 billion additional funding to…

Jamal Bell’s shooting was completely justified and not in any way racially motivated, according to some reader’s comments that followed the SE article. After all, he had a knife and refused to comply with police shouting orders. Case closed.

Last January, President Donald Trump quietly changed the traditional definition of Domestic Violence and rolled back women’s rights 50 years. Under Trump, the Justice Department redefined domestic violence to only include physical harm that would constitute a felony or misdemeanor. The new d…

By no means should the people of Ogden disregard the threat of a Utah specific roadless rule, as expressed in an article from early March. It is quite easing to know that someone listened when the people of Weber County spoke up against redoing the management of roadless forests, and that sh…

During the night of Sunday, March 31, a 20-foot white cargo trailer was stolen from our yard. The contents were of little value but the trailer also contained several boxes of items such as journals, photographs, family memorabilia, souvenirs and boxes of books we have collected over many ye…

I loved your Sunday, March story about music therapy, since the gift of music is dear to my heart. I belong to the Ogden chapter of the national Threshold Choir, and we bring music directly to those “on a threshold,” whether they are ill, depressed, or actively dying. Three or four of our gr…

Sen.Elizabeth Warren has observed that the richest one-tenth of one percent of Americans have been allowed to amass fortunes equal to the incomes of 90 percent of other Americans. Strangely, politically conservative Utahns seem undisturbed by this obscene statistic.

The news that our two U.S. Sens. Mitt Romney and Mike Lee have both become traitors to the will of their voters, and to the safety and security of our country, by voting against the president and with the socialist left on the border wall...

On the morning of Feb. 20, around 6:45 a.m., in the middle of a snow storm, my car quit running at the intersection of 38th and Harrison. I was taking my husband to McKay-Dee Hospital to have a medical procedure performed. We were already late for his appointment, because of the snow and traffic.

I am writing this in hopes that as an American citizen who cares about where this country is heading, I will be heard. I am totally disgusted with the people that have been elected to make decisions for this country. There are a few who hold their office at a high level and with sincerity wi…

When President John F. Kennedy was assassinated, a friend called me on the telephone and asked, "What are you doing?" I replied, "I am watching the television news and crying about our president being shot."

State Tax Overhaul — HB 441 — is basically a sham. We are being told that the sales tax revenue has dropped because people are buying fewer goods and food and buying more services. I have yet to see any data that backs up this assertion by the State Legislature. Fact is in the past 10 years …

I have been a subscriber to the Standard-Examiner for over 30 years. It’s bad enough that you have have essentially eliminated your excellent editorial board and editorial staff which provided our community with insightful and well considered local perspectives. Now, I’m deeply disturbed by …

I need to comment on Rep. Rob Bishop's guest commentary in the Feb. 10 paper. I was under the impression the 35-day government shutdown was caused by Mr. Trump's unwillingness to accept less than $5.8 billion dollars for a border wall in the government funding bill. Mr. Trump said that he wo…

It is time for our country's leaders to look back and take note of the history behind the fall of the Roman Empire and the moral decline of its leaders. It is truly disgusting and unbelievable how our great United States of America is really beginning to look more and more like what happened…

Scientists say the magnetic north pole movement from Canada towards Siberia has increased to about 35 miles per year, causing the need to change GPS orientation for maps, etc. Some streets named for their geomagnetic locations have already had a name change. To quote Kevin Anderton, science …

I listened to President Trump's Rose Garden address about opening up the government again. The address heavily insisted that we need a barrier on our southern border to keep people from coming in because there are a lot of criminals, drug-dealers, and "bad, bad people" trying to enter our country.

I used to look forward to Mark Saal’s weekly humor columns. They were creative, refreshing and funny. I find that his political commentary often sounds like a rehash of CNN talking points.

I am one of 450-plus federal officers that work at the Salt Lake International Airport. I have missed two pay checks starting this past Friday. I understand both sides of the Wall issue, and I agree to a point with both parties. However, because of both parties childish actions, we the littl…

So we endure another government shutdown. Albeit a partial one. These are not uncommon and if the media doesn’t bring up the struggles of civil service employees nobody gives it much thought. It might being unsettling to think that you might be considered “non-essential”.

This is my response to “Stand up against the border wall” Dec. 30, 2018. The author parrots leftist propaganda consisting of outright falsehoods and red herring emotional appeals.

Humankind has built walls since before the 1st century B.C. The early wall of China later became the Great Wall in the 14th through 17th centuries. Romans built Hadrian’s Wall in England in the second century. Walls were made of stone, mortar and wood. The Berlin Wall was built by Communists…

It is true that Donald Trump has been able to accomplish remarkable things. In the present instance, he has actually managed to make me, a staunch Democrat, nostalgic for Ronald Reagan.

Wow! Not even sworn in yet and already attacking our President! It looks like the people of Utah really did vote in a Flake. It looks like honorable(?) Mitt Romney got himself voted in for his own agenda — not caring about the nation or the state of Utah. Mitt Romney really does us proud. I …

I am writing again regarding the homeless shelter in Layton, which we do not have! Where is the compassion and love we are supposed to have for our fellow human beings?

The so-called "Border Wall" is not only dumb, it is totally ridiculous. Illegal entries will simply seek other areas of free access.

Sen. Romney, many of us in Utah didn't support your campaign for Senate but you were elected. I am a constituent and as of now I'm willing to give you a chance to really represent the "people" of Utah. All of us. Democrat, Republican and Independent.

As we begin the new year, I want to take a moment to show my appreciation to the ones that work tirelessly behind the scenes making the world a better place and say thank you to those heroes that gave me the chance to enjoy this beautiful morning of Jan. 1.
