Letter: What’s governor’s plan for scarce water supply?

I have often heard our governor urge us to slow the flow. He is so very right the drought isn't going away. On the other hand he is encouraging lots of new people to come here. People need water. The same water we don't have enough of. I would like to know the plan for solving this ...

Letter: Seniors should have the option to choose home

A recent poll found that 94% of Medicare beneficiaries would prefer to receive post-hospital short-term health care at home, and 85% of adults say it should be a high priority for the federal government to expand Medicare coverage for home health care. Fortunately, bipartisan lawmakers in both ...

Letter: Nukes to the rescue

Global warming and climate change appear inevitable, given the urgency of the problem and limited resources available. Today at the Glasgow meeting of representatives of two hundred nations, President Biden called for oil and gas industries to increase their fossil energy output, required to ...

Letter: Resist Utah lawmakers’ attack on vote by mail

This is a personal response to your article of 22 October 2021, titled: "Legislators Attack vote by mail, want statewide audit". First let me say that I am eighty years old and both me and my 79 years young wife vote by mail. At my age voting by mail is God sent. The state of Utah has one of ...

Letter: Supporting Benitez for city council because character matters

I have known Sebastian Benitez for over a decade. During this time, I have witnessed his compassion for the less fortunate. It shouldn’t be a surprise that he wants to run for the Ogden City Council. Few people spend the time campaigning for projects left unfinished in the community. ...

Letter: An option for politically homeless voters

News sources have reported on voters’ widespread dissatisfaction with their current party affiliation. Many people have left their parties, citing some version of “I didn’t leave the party; the party left me,” or “it no longer reflects my values.” Newly unaffiliated voters might be ...

Letter: Discouraged by protest outside McKay-Dee Hospital

A large group of people wearing hospital scrubs, PPE and halloween masks was protesting covid vaccines on Saturday, Oct. 16, at the corner of 42nd and Jackson Ave., the entrance to Intermountain Health Care's McKay-Dee Hospital. I cannot express how sad this made me. I have always felt Ogden ...

Letter: Why do Latter-day Saints still feel like they should live in Utah?

It boggles my mind how Latter-day Saints feel like they should live in Utah. For instance, LDS will move to Utah even though LDS are not commanded to relocate to the Beehive State like they used to be. (From my LDS mission, I recall LDS moving from New Jersey to Utah.) The Book of Mormon even ...

Letter: Unhelpful service in visit to IRS office

I went to the local IRS office for information regarding my long delayed tax refund. There I encountered the most belligerent, antagonistic, unhelpful "public servant" you can imagine. After I had waited an hour and a half, noon came and one of the two men there left, evidently for lunch. I ...

Letter: More help needed for vulnerable patients

I would like to know why doctors do not really care enough about their patients. The mentally and physically ill, poor and homeless get left by the wayside. I guess it all comes down to money or what kind of expensive health insurance you have. The doctors do not listen. A 15 minute ...
