Letter: We need leadership in Congress, not party politics

Many evaluated the 2023 Congress as the least productive, most dysfunctional ever. We need leaders honoring their Constitutional Oaths, not players trying to score political points. Representatives returned from their vacation and promptly declared it is impossible to meet their already twice ...

Letter: Utah pursuing power play in hopes of netting NHL team

Many years ago, there were rumors that the New York Islanders — despite their incredible history of hoisting the Stanley Cup four straight years — would move to Kansas City unless improvements were made to their arena situation. The Oakland A's are headed to Las Vegas for precisely that ...

Letter: Words of advice for new Latter-day Saint apostle

In the article titled "Standing Against Abuse", the new Latter-day Saint apostle Patrick Kearon made some very accurate and powerful comments about care for sex abuse victims. One statement in particular would resonate with any caring individual or group. He said "We must all be much better in ...

Letter: Human beings are not vermin, so stop killing babies

Human beings are not vermin. We are all created in the image and likeness of God. To kill a baby in the womb, dismember it, and throw its body parts into a trash bin is to treat a human being like vermin. You do not need to be affiliated with a religion to know this. A good conscience and a ...

You know, I can't change my skin color, race, origin, etc. Those are immutable characteristics. What I can change is my skills. Information on the web is open to everyone. Everyone has access to it. Merit is the greatest equalizer. Just passed the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. He is most ...

Letter: Utah GOP has abandoned its principles

The Utah Republican party appears to be finally fully off the rails. Instead of calling itself the party of Lincoln it can legitimately call itself the party of Jefferson Davis. First, the Utah Senate bill attacking federal “unconstitutional overreach” is EXACTLY what Lincoln opposed and ...

Letter: The real story behind Trump’s Iowa failure

Tuesday’s article "Trump notches commanding win in IA caucuses” is actually wrong. I’ve read articles at Washington Post, The Hill, CNN, CBS, and others calling traitor’s performance a Huge Win. But, ALL OF THOSE ARTICLES COMPARED HIS RANKING TO HIS 2016 PERFORMANCE, NOT HIS 2020 ...

Letter: Trump’s victim mentality pushed me away from GOP

I am a Republican voter. Or at least, I was. Former President Trump has finally persuaded me to vote Democrat. According to Trump, the Democrats stole the 2020 election, using elected Republican officials and average Republican election workers without their knowledge, and without leaving any ...
