Letter: Limited truth

I’m afraid, Mr. President, that no matter your demeanor, it’s as difficult for us to know when you are telling the truth as it was when the villagers came rushing each time the boy cried “wolf!” Read more »

Letter: Front-page headlines

I don't know who it is that selects the front-page headlines that are supposed to inflame interest and sell newspapers, but they are failing miserably if that is what these headlines are supposed to accomplish. Read more »

Letter: Olympic bid

The recent editorial about Beijing winning the bid by default for the 2022 Olympic Games reminds me how much the Olympics are not about the actual sports, but about the host city or country getting recognition for hosting the games.... Read more »

Letter: Good Samaritans

On Monday, I slipped and fell in the vicinity of 300 South and 500 East. I had been in the sun far too long, became dizzy and fell onto a cement walkway. I have crippling rheumatoid arthritis and was in considerable pain. Two very... Read more »

Letter: Clean up the streets

After attending a great Outdoor Retailers show this last weekend, I felt I had to write and express my embarrassment for the city of Salt Lake and apologize to the visitors from out of town because of what the mayor and Salt Lake... Read more »

Letter: What’s best for America?

No one would argue that George Washington and the Founding Fathers didn't want what was best for the country. With very few exceptions, they put America above their own ambitions. My question is, "what happened"? Read more »

Letter: Real difference

Some of what Trump says is outrageous, but he is being his honest self, saying exactly what he is thinking and not what he thinks people want to hear. This is a rare trait that is lacking in other politicians. Read more »

Letter: Politically incorrect

I strongly wonder if Donald Trump has not confused political correctness with civility; that outspoken brashness, rudeness and insults are the opposite of political correctness, and are therefore acceptable. Read more »

Letter: Trump’s motives

Why do conservative pundits not expose Donald Trump’s motives? He loves Hillary Clinton, as evidenced by the money he has given her. He is not a conservative and has never been a Republican. Read more »

Letter: Negative campaigning

Politicians speaking about only what they are against do so to create fear. It’s time to demand they tell us what they actually stand for — which takes far more effort and brain power. Read more »

Letter: Unaccounted costs

Should the use of solar power increase to the point that utilities must use some form of energy storage in order to cover nighttime energy, the cost would be huge. There is a reason that power systems have developed as they have. Read more »

Letter: Final decision

Apparently the Prison Relocation Commission is expecting to make a final decision on the eventual spot for the relocated prison next Tuesday. That means the prison could head to Salt Lake City, Grantsville, Fairfield or Eagle Mountain. Read more »

Letter: Anyone listening?

The prison should not be moved for any number of reasons pointed out in the news media. We don't need our taxes raised to fund such a foolish venture. Why won't anyone in our state government listen to us? Read more »

Letter: Shameful ethics

What does it take to get any sort of reaction from our legislators, who fear that if they act it may damage their chances for re-election? As voters and Americans we should be ashamed of our current set of ethics. Read more »

Letter: No animals in the park

Lagoon should instead focus on what it’s good at — mechanical rides and shows with real performers. That’s what people come for anyway. Lagoon should release its caged animals. Read more »

Letter: Challenge the payoffs

There is no excuse for Gov. Herbert's failure to challenge the Legislature's Prison Relocation Commission. Utah voters smell corruption and payoffs behind the whole proposition and want nothing to do with it. Read more »
