Letter: Put people in control

I believe there should be no government-run, or public, schools at all. It should all be private — where people have control over what happens to their children while the children gain an education. Read more »

Letter: Beware of barbecued bugs

Whatever happened to the good old days when the worst things we had to fear on Memorial Day were traffic jams and indigestion? This year, it's all about food poisoning by the nasty E. coli, salmonella and listeria bugs... Read more »

Letter: Special treatment

Ralph Becker is asking city residents to fight the prison move to Salt Lake City. Everyone wants it somewhere else. But they miss the bigger point. Why move it at all? As a Draper resident for over 25 years, I wonder why... Read more »

Letter: Let the people rule

John Florez certainly hit the nail on the head in last Saturday’s column ("Looking at Utah's prison relocation efforts," May 16); we have lost control of, and communication with, the Utah Legislature. They are... Read more »

Letter: Prison boondoggle

Why all of a sudden has it become a high priority to relocate the Utah State Prison? If the prison is in such bad shape that it needs to be relocated and rebuilt, wouldn't it make more sense and be cheaper to remodel and/or... Read more »

Letter: Stop the flop

I know this is not the sports page, but as a place to voice my opinion, I have to wonder what is being done in the NBA to prevent flopping. When players flop, or flail their bodies around like any physical contact is the same as... Read more »

Letter: Obscure trade bill

The Obama administration won’t let anyone see the details of the president’s Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) bill; I liken it to Obamacare, where “we have to pass it to see what’s in it.” The only... Read more »

Letter: Testing culture

I applaud Scott Hicks for expressing his frustration that teachers are not allowed to count students' SAGE scores on grades (“Who has accountability?” May 10). It adds to a frustration that started when I read... Read more »

Letter: Utah gas prices

It is amazing that our gas prices in Salt Lake at the pump are so high — almost $3 per gallon. In the states around us, prices are much lower. West Yellowstone has prices below $2.50 per gallon. West Yellowstone usually offers... Read more »

Letter: Trade opposition

Mr. President, stop smearing Sen. Warren over Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) opposition. If this treaty is such a sweet deal, why can't we see it? And Sen. Hatch and Lee, you both should be putting as much sunlight on this... Read more »
