Tell the Interior Secretary to leave Bears Ears alone

Zinke National Monuments

Thank you to the Standard-Examiner for the May 17 editorial, "Zinke heard one perspective on Bear Ears. Now he needs to hear yours.” We need to keep this important issue in the public eye. I believe two issues are important to stress in the often vitriolic conversations concerning our public...

We've lost our values since World War II

Supreme Court Abortion-2

Things are the same as they have always been. Nothing but technology has really changed. Today's politics, religion, and culture have been basically the same for generations in America. There is nothing new under the sun. These things may be true in the long run. But in the short run, much has...

Realtor's stiletto column belonged in the Opinion section

AdobeStock_88465860.jpeg heels

The article "Can you trust a Realtor in stilettos?" on the front page of Home & Family in the May 12, 2017, edition of your newspaper is extremely offensive, misleading and not news. The title itself is very sexist, and leads one to believe the article would be sexist. Once reading, it's seem...

North Ogden's Taylor deserves credit for trying to shake up UTA

BN 011415 N.Ogden Monroe 11-10 Taylor

My hat's off to North Ogden Mayor Brent Taylor. He is trying to make the Utah Transit Authority a better organization and more responsible to the taxpaying public (”North Ogden mayor calls for UTA board leadership to step down,” May 3 Standard-Examiner). But apparently the only...

Hatch and Lee need to strengthen the ACA, not replace it

Election Utah-8 Lee

Our Utah senators should protect and strengthen the Affordable Care Act, not vote to replace it with Trumpcare. Members of my family would have had no coverage without the ACA, and if Trumpcare becomes the law of the land their coverage will be reduced or eliminated. And there are so many living...

James Comey is honest. No wonder everybody hated him

Trump Comey-4

Hillary Clinton has stated that James Comey cost her the election. Some have speculated that President Donald Trump was nervous about Comey’s Russia investigation. It would seem Comey, whom Trump fired as FBI director May 9, is hated by both Republicans and Democrats. One explanation might be...

Soulless thieves took an autistic boy's fidget spinner

Fidget Spinner Craze

I just want to thank those who had the gall to take my son's fidget spinner at our apartment building. For lying about not having it. For stealing it from a child who is autistic. For stealing it from a child who has ADHD. For not caring that he is upset and crying. For not having a soul. You think...

Trash along Interstate 15 in Utah is terrible

MH 121516 HAFB Traffic 05-4

I just read the May 12 comments from Mary Wilson regarding the trash along Interstate 15 (“Utah is a beautiful state. People need to stop trashing it, especially along I-15.”) It starts at Layton, and I travel to Roy so who knows how far it spreads. It's terrible. I saw it firsthand...

Sunset residents need to rally on behalf of their fire department

Sunset fire department

The Sunset City Council is preparing to vote on a decision to close the Sunset City Fire Department. Council members have not been very transparent in their deliberations and discussions on this issue. Most Sunset residents haven’t heard about this decision because it has not been reported...

Mussel infestation threatens Pineview Reservoir

BS 080116 Free Beach 07-1 Pineview

As an Ogden Valley resident who has been watching Pineview Reservoir fill up for the last few weeks, and now with warmer weather, I, like many others, am looking forward to using the reservoir for its beaches, for paddling and for boating. Unfortunately, with this anticipation of summer recreation...
