This past week I have read and watched the story of a young student dressed as Hitler for Halloween. The principal of the school and one teacher were both placed on leave for the child’s actions. Did they not act soon or swift enough? Hitler was a monster and should not been given praise in …

The Standard-Examiner’s front-page story “Cool Ghouls” of Thursday, Oct. 31 contains a misleading statement in its fifth paragraph that can be cleared up by considering some basic physics. The reason children tend to get cold faster than adults is not because their surface area is small, but…

Is the famous “BL” in the foothills above BLHS even visible anymore? I remember 30 or so years ago we would hike the foothills up to the BL to give it a fresh coat of paint and to correct any changes that certain schools seemed to make every year around Homecoming and Iron Horse Week. It was…

On Oct. 27, NBC News published a story titled, "The price Sen. Romney is paying for standing against Trump." It included a poll by Utah Policy showing a majority of Utahns disapprove of Sen. Romney’s job performance. The story continued by briefly interviewing two fellow Utahns. Dan Roehm of…

OK -- it is time for my yearly rant. Weber State University has the third ranked football team in the FCS in the country. That is fantastic! Way to go Coach Hill and team! The work done to build that program over the six years Hill has taken over has been phenomenal!! Now that bad news. Webe…

Weber County voters received short ballots this year: a few contested mayoral races, city council races and Proposition 3. As this last week of voting begins, let’s take a closer look at exactly what Proposition 3 is and is not.

I would like to compliment the “Sports” section of the S-E. Realizing the print space for sports is limited, I feel the coverage is top-notch. The AP coverage of all Utah, national and international sports, teams and events are good. Even NASCAR gets coverage; which is welcomed. Brett Hein a…

Like many other states, the state of Utah is considering forcing providers of “services” to collect sales tax for them. This would include everything from yoga and music instructors, to medical providers. What they aren’t considering is the fact that the collection of taxes offers no benefit…

Mr. Trump the citizen. If he were to get 5s on all those questions (referred to in the Oct. 18 published letter) he would never have been elected president. The people are tired of lying positions who never keep their promises. He's feisty and will fight for what he believes. He sounds like …

I've been telling people I'm from Ogden my entire life. It used to be met with skeptical looks and muttered remarks about my safety. (Once I even heard it called "the armpit of Utah.) Sure, Ogden used to be known for high crime rates, and a struggling economy. But that hasn't been the case f…

As a strong supporter of Weber County's only Democratic representative Lou Shurtliff, I must disagree with her support for our current mayor who is asking for an additional four years after serving for eight.

The signing of the Sexual Violence Protection Act (HB 100) signified a great step forward in the mass issue surrounding sexual violence. Previous laws have protected victims of sexual violence who are cohabitating or in some sort of relationship, this bill provides more rights to a victim wh…

The I-15 on-ramp in Roy with this construction is UNSAFE! The modified on ramp as you come from 5600 South in Roy is too narrow and as you move along it, you either hit the cement barricade or your bumper sticks out into the lane you are trying to merge into. It can cause an accident. I have…

Just recently my family and I gave my wife a surprise birthday party. The majority of the family and friends were predominantly the LDS culture. During the celebration of the birthday gathering, I got into a conversation into the politics in our leadership of our country.

The United States of America is unique! Its uniqueness comes from the ideals and values set forth in its Declaration of Independence and its Constitution. There is no other country like it! Since its founding, the U.S. Constitution has been amended, for the betterment of its people (citizens…

Wow! I just opened my mail in ballot and was in shock with the pamphlet on Proposition 3. I was under the impression that the election office and officials were an information organization and was non partisan. That clearly isn't the case. The bold letters certainly prove that. When I called…

I am uncertain what the mindset is of the state Legislature in determining the "need" for tax restructuring. A couple of things that we need to keep in mind -- and so does the Legislature.

As citizens of the state of Utah, It should not matter what political affiliation we are when it comes to investigating wrong deeds by our president and the safety of our great country. We must all rally together to insist that the Constitution is being upheld and that there is no undue pres…

I just wanted to send a letter and express my frustration with bicycle theft in Ogden. I came to Ogden in 2014. Since that time I have had four mountain bikes stolen from me. All were locked with the thickest cable lock I could find. About a week ago I bought a new bike and donated my old on…

Dear Sen. Romney, Please, please do the impossible in Congress! Please start working to get the Democrats in Congress to do their job they were elected to do. Please get them to stop working to get rid of a president who was legally elected to run this country.

Women have immeasurable potential to do good, yet many are silenced by the trauma of emotional abuse. As the founder of Betrayal Trauma Recovery (BTR), a nonprofit seeking to help women to establish safety from emotional abuse, I feel strongly about the abusive nature of pornography. I’m a U…

I ran for mayor because I care about my family and community. As a longtime resident of Ogden, I’ve watched us tackle the challenges that a growing city faces with a grit that’s unique to us. That isn’t to say there haven’t been growing pains. I threw my hat in the ring because I was concern…

Sen. Mitt Romney’s attacks on President Trump as he performs his duties under the U.S. Constitution are appalling. My career was spent as a corporate officer in a U.S. energy company regulated by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). I was involved in required filings made to th…

In response to ‘Title IX’ letter published in the Standard-Examiner, I appreciate your letter, but I didn’t find going to school in the ‘60s as repressive as your representation. I was in college prep in high school, fully intended and was encouraged to have a career in science, went to a fo…

It has recently come to my attention that the B-47 jet bomber at the Hill Air Force Base Museum is slated to be scrapped. The aircraft is in need of repair and restoration and the $250,000 needed to save it could not be raised. This is a sad day for our community. This is one of only 23 rema…

It took a lot of courage to speak out about Trump’s behavior. I’m extremely proud of Sen. Romney for putting our country over party and supporting our Constitution and democracy. Trump is a habitual liar and conspiracy theorist at its best. Sen. Romney showed his moral and ethical value to o…

Proposition 3 again? Yep! But this time it’s only for Weber County voters and asks “Shall a study committee be appointed to consider and possibly recommend a change in Weber County’s form of government?.”

How extremely fun to be President Trump today! He gleefully runs off to events like the UN Climate Actions Summit and disrupts them with his authority and whimsical speeches. He knows several things about life on planet America that serve him well.

Don't let someone else choose your city elected officials! For the recent city primary elections, only 30.89% of registered Weber County voters bothered to vote. In Davis County, only 29.3% of registered voters voted. Both counties voted by mail, the easiest possible method. Have a voice in …

Sen. Mitt Romney is busy chasing headlines, saying he is "concerned" about President Donald Trump's phone call with the president of Ukraine. Fine, Romney dislikes Trump. But why has he not shown any interest in the conduct of Joe Biden? Biden is on video bragging about his time as vice pres…
