There's nothing funny about President Trump

The syndicated cartoonists for the Standard-Examiner opinion page are way out of line. My wife and...

GOP writes a health care bill in secret, but Dems and media are the problem?

APTOPIX Congress Health Overhaul McConnell

John Reynolds actually had some salient points in his last letter (“Democrats, biased media are tearing America apart, June 19), but then he had to go and blow it with his partisan rhetoric again. While it's true our system of government relies on an informed and engaged electorate, you can't...

Older drivers are some of the safest on the road

MH 121516 HAFB Traffic 03-2

I read Our View in the June 16 Standard-Examiner with great interest (“Utahns are lying to keep their driver's licenses. And that puts everyone at risk”). According to statistics cited by the editorial, 280 people died on Utah roads in 2016. Of that number 99 deaths were speed related,...

There's nothing funny about President Trump

McKee edit toon 6-22-17

The syndicated cartoonists for the Standard-Examiner opinion page are way out of line. My wife and I have been loyal customers of this newspaper for many years. We find these daily mockeries of President Trump totally disrespectful not only to the person but to the position. Not everyone finds this...

Let developers pay to solve stormwater drainage problem in Hooper

050615 Storm Runoff 02-1

I live in Hooper, and it seems like the only time we get a Hooper City newsletter is when they are announcing something that makes it more expensive to live here. What’s this deal about stormwater? I’ve lived in Hooper 85 years and never had a problem with stormwater. It used to be that...

Impeach Schumer and Pelosi, not President Trump

Congress Democrats-2 Schumer

I concur wholeheartedly with John W. Reynolds and his comments on the deceitful left-wing news media (”Violent protesters can't get over their disappointment that Trump won,” May 31 Standard-Examiner). The far-left news media wants to destroy the very principles we as bonafide Americans...

Trump is making America the laughingstock of the world

Trump-1 Roosevelt Room

I have never seen a president as immature, uninformed and bad as Donald Trump! I had hoped he would grow to become a halfway decent leader, but if he is going to change many minds, there is a lot of hard work to do. Lying and conning us and making up things is not working. Maybe he needs a little...

Chaffetz wasn't that good on the football field or in Congress

Congress Chaffetz-2

I’m kind of happy that the placekicker from Brigham Young University is resigning from Congress. Jason Chaffetz never made that many field goals that mattered — just like his chairmanship of the House Oversight Committee. Mark Summers Ogden

Why was the Air Quality Advisory Committee scrapped?

BN 123016 Smog Inversion 02-1 Ogden

We lived in Southern California when layers of toxic smog descended upon the Los Angeles basin. Visibility was limited and one's lungs smarted as one inhaled the acrid air. Children with lung problems ended up in emergency rooms. Yet California took action and one day it was possible to view Los...

Americans are the victim of a hoax — Donald Trump

Trump Cuba-8

During his presidential campaign, Donald Trump said he would make America great again by: Repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act. Building a wall at Mexico’s expense. Saving Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security without cutting benefits. Taking care of women’s health. Never...

Democrats, biased media are tearing America apart

Trump salutes

The nexus of our current train wreck of national unity is numerous points of contention between pro- and anti-Trump forces. While the pro forces often criticize President Trump’s acts or “tweets,” the anti forces always find fault with the commander in chief. Some of them even...
