Letter: Columnist makes excuses for redistricting cheating

Michael Barone's editorial "Redistricting proved to be much ado about not much," justifies cheating because it isn't working. Barone's flippant disregard for fair voting districts proves how little he respects our system. Barone incorrectly reasons that political demographics shift anyway, so ...

Letter: Don’t let Ukraine conflict devolve into World War III

World War II dates from 1939 to 1945. Atrocities are recorded as "criminal assault on innocent and helpless victims" and some statistics list 75 million people killed with about 20 million being soldiers. A war crime tribunal was held and the world found out about crimes against humanity, ...

Letter: Are today’s Christian leaders really Christlike?

Many Christians in business, insurance, finance, government and education today pride themselves on being “Christlike,” as if they possessed the full profile of skills and knowledge Jesus demonstrated in his day. However, today’s definition of “Christlike” seems to hang on the notion ...

Letter: History shows America most prosperous under GOP rule

President Trump was the head coach of a great economy and a safe country. Mr. Biden destroyed it all on his first day in office. Biden cowers down to A.O.C. and the Squad who probably don't know how to operate a foot pushed scooter. President Reagan held his ground by "peace through strength" ...

Letter: Student debt cancellation is unfair to those who paid

I am against President Biden considering forgiving student loan debt! I think that is wrong! What about all the students who worked and sacrificed and paid off their debt! Will they get a refund? My daughter worked full time while attending Utah State and graduated with honors! She then ...

Letter: Being pro-life should mean caring for all living people

Letter: A thought to Gov. Cox and staff

Our Great Salt Lake years ago was overflown. The gov at the time installed two pumps and 2 12 cylinder diesel engines at Little Mountain and pumped water from the lake into the desert and it worked. Why not take the pumps and engines to some point in California and pump water to our Great Salt ...

Letter: Weber County pools not always open when needed

As an avid swimmer, I’m very excited about the prospect of the opening of the Marshall White recreation center and swimming pools. Since the Ogden High School (OHS) and Ben Lomond (BLHS) pools were reopened several years ago, I have enjoyed using these pools. Because the OHS pool is ...

Letter: This Democrat will be voting for Rep. Blake Moore

I am a lifelong Democrat and unabashed liberal. My political views do not align with my Congressman, Rep. Blake Moore — at all. Yet I know him to be a man of integrity and good will who has done a wonderful job in his first term in the House of Representatives. I can't underscore how ...

Letter: Senator Lee proving Mark Twain quote true

May I remind Senator Mike Lee of the quote by Mark Twain when he said the following: "It's better to remain silent and give the impression of being foolish than to speak and remove all doubt." Miguel Serda, Jr. Clearfield
