Letter: Heckling during speech shows lack of class, empathy

My wife and I thought President Biden did a very nice job on his State of the Union address to the nation Tuesday night. It’s too bad that two female congress women decided to show their lack of class and disrespect to the president by heckling him during his speech, especially when he was ...

Letter: Republican confusion is difficult to comprehend

In these confusing times, I look to our Republican leaders for advice. Unfortunately, on most issues they seem to be more confused than I am. For instance, our overwhelmingly Republican House overwhelmingly passed a bill to make Juneteenth a holiday in Utah. Juneteenth celebrates the day, two ...

Letter: Joe Biden’s haste made waste

Our gas prices are going up, inflation is aggravating that. Supply channels are still lacking. The cars we do have, lack the items needed for them to operate! Who can afford the electric cars now? Electric powered cars are predicted to be more affordable by 2025. Increase energy production ...

Letter: Time for Utah to consider a carbon fee, dividend

Utah is experiencing a mega-drought, a long-term climate-induced water crisis. In addition to water conservation, we must reduce carbon emissions. Representative Ward (R-Bountiful) recently proposed HJR 3 - Joint Resolution Supporting Federal Carbon Fee and Dividend Program. Ward made a strong ...

Letter: Why wouldn’t senator want equity, diversity and inclusion?

I'm confused. I don’t understand why Senator John Johnson does not want our public schools to be inclusive where everyone is treated fairly and equitably and where people from diverse backgrounds are welcomed into the community of learners. I thought this is exactly what public schools are ...

Letter: Ashamed by failure to prevent Ukraine fiasco

I am amazed at World Democracies and the United States. In 1990 a murdering, brutal, bully of a dictator invaded and occupied a smaller, Constitutional Monarchy country. The dictator claimed the small country was historically part of his country. The democracies of the world united to remove ...

Letter: Critical thinking vs Critical Race Theory misinformation

22 February article “Film produced by lawmaker targets CRT” about Identity Marxism: The Rise of Critical Race Theory. Article states, “The history of this nation is being challenged and prosecuted for being systematically racist.” It expresses a concern about CRT singling out white ...

Letter: Education isn’t a one size fits all program

As a mom of seven children, I work to cater the educational experience for each of my children. Most of my children are being homeschooled. We make school choices kid by kid and year by year to choose what that child needs this year. It takes a lot of work to use different curriculums for each ...

Letter: My thoughts on Utah, world affairs

I would like to express my opinion on some news items! Every state in the United States takes great pride, even Utah, in conducting a fair, honest, fraud free election! All the claims from an ex president about massive fraud in the 2020 Presidential election are not true! He seems to be a ...

Letter: On plans for our unique Monte Cristo

Motor sports. That’s always the answer to recreation in Utah. It’s all we know. But how many would use that answer if gas was $6/gallon? $10.72/gallon? Monte Cristo could be a world-class high elevation destination for non-motorized recreation. Snowy in the winter, cool in the summer. ...
