Letter: Treehouse lesson taught importance of ‘building’

One summer, when I was a young boy, my friend and I decided to build a treehouse. I remember how excited we were to secure boards and nails and whatever else we would need and get started on the project. Day after day, we could hardly wait to spend more time on the project — all the while ...

Letter: First, do no harm … a good rule for politicians too

The phrase, “First, do no harm” is part of the Hippocratic Oath that physicians must take in order to practice medicine. As a people, we should also require the President and our elected leaders to follow this same precept: “Do not enact legislation or support policies that will actively ...

Lindquist Field was opened in 1997 on the site of the old Ogden Iron Works. It was one of the initial pieces in the revitalization of downtown Ogden. After only a few years the seating had to be expanded to accommodate the crowds watching our Ogden Raptors. I have been a season ticket holder ...
