Letter: Utahns deserve better representation in US Senate

How close were we as a nation to becoming a nation under a dictator? Our very own Republican senator was ready to make that happen. How hypocritical is his advertisement, that we hear over and over again on TV, that he honors the Constitution. So how precious is our Constitution to him? How ...

Reich: The shame of the Supreme Court

If there's any doubt about the extremism of the Supreme Court's six Republican appointees, it was on full display with their opinion in Dobbs vs. Jackson Women's Health Organization, which overrules Roe v. Wade, establishing the right to an abortion. Roe had been the law of the land for almost ...

Guest opinion: Meeting students where they are, one student at a time

Letter: Flip your strip trials and tribulations

Our government bureaucracy at work. I live in Layton and I have no park strip. I’m going to flip my whole front yard. I took the required class and in the class I asked about this and was told in Davis Co. it is administered on a city by city bases. I contacted Layton City and was told this ...

Letter: Scrutiny of the Ogden budget proposal

We have inflation running out of control. Groceries & gas are through the roof, neither of which are considered luxury items. Our home property taxes have increased exponentially due to the ridiculous rise in appraised value. Half of anyone's 401k plan has evaporated. Regardless of ...
