Reader hates daylight saving time, misses long, dark summer evenings

I guess it’s time to get my opinion out of mothballs again. I hate daylight saving time. It...

Conservatives acted like adults when Obama won. Learn a lesson, Democrats

Health Overhaul-3

Two fine examples of “low-information” people had letters in this newspaper March 13, 2017. One letter called for an investigation of President Trump and his alleged ties to the Russian government (”Demand that Sessions appoint a special counsel to probe Trump's ties to Russia,...

Mexico may pay for a wall — to keep the Americans out

The way many of our good-paying manufacturing jobs are being outsourced to Mexico (jobs from Nabisco, Carrier, and Chrysler, just to name a few), it’s possible that many living in this country might want to move to Mexico in search of a job, seeing how there might not be any here. It’s...

Utah needs to spend more money on its public schools

Secondary BZ 082516 Science Teacher 05-4

Those of you who are worried about the K-12 experience of Utah's children are doing the right thing.

We need to defend free speech, especially when it offends

SW 012117 Unity Rally 11

I subscribe to it, and have since 1981, for two main reasons: 1) It tries hard to keep politicians honest by constantly exposing them. That is what keeps...

Spring Forward

I guess it’s time to get my opinion out of mothballs again. I hate daylight saving time. It takes a month for my body to accept the time change. Do you know where MST begins? In Kansas. It makes sense if you live in Denver. The sun pops out of the prairie early in the morning, but if you live...

Liberal media bias on full display in kerfuffle over Trump and Russia

Trump Russia Manafort

Intrepid reporters for major news networks may have unwittingly revealed little-known secrets of successful diplomacy.
