Letter writer right on one hand, wrong on other

As a non-radical Democrat, I take issue with much of Mr. John Reynold’s letter from May 15, 2018. But I'd like to start with where I agree with John; that this is the most contentious period in the last 40 years, and there are a large number of people who distrust and dislike (President...

Ogden Fire Department helped man get out of his van

I am wheelchair-bound from the time I get out of bed until I go to bed, so there are some things that I am unable to do without injuring myself.

Getting help in time of need

I wanted to express my thanks to the many thoughtful people who stopped to offer assistance during our time of need. They supplied us with water, tissues, and offers to call an ambulance. One kindly gentleman stayed with us, holding the dog and helping to provide shade, until our son, Andy, could...

Trump haters, radical Democrats leading a coup against the president

Not since unrest of the civil rights riots in the 1960s and the Vietnam War riots in the 1970s have we, in my memory, had a more contentious social landscape. The trifecta of distrust – Trump haters, radical Democrats and deep-state desperadoes have formed an unholy alliance to destroy a...

Idaho benefits from Utahns who play the lottery

I drive a delivery van for a local company and I make drops in a lot of Utah and Idaho cities. As I travel Idaho, I notice a lot of Utah drivers at the lottery locations. I, too, am guilty of dropping a few dollars and usually lose. I do win a few dollars here and there, but I figure I drop an...

State officials need to investigate high gas prices in Utah

Gas pumps

What is going on at the gas pumps once again in Utah? I believe it was about four years ago I was upset with Utah being in the top five states with the highest gas prices. Well, here we go again. Utah once again has some of the nation’s highest prices at the pump. Something is fishy. Where...

Did Donald Trump's parents teach him about character?

I heartily agree with Linda Smithana (“Character assassination should disqualify a candidate for office,” May 6); we don't build ourselves up by putting another individual (or individuals) down. That is a lesson my parents taught me and that I have hopefully taught my children. I wonder...

Crime has spoiled central Ogden's once friendly atmosphere

After nearly 15 years, I decided to start the newspaper again on a trial basis. Immediately, I was reading some of the same types of articles about corruption in local government, law enforcement, political gerrymandering in Weber County and Ogden City, and excessive crime levels that caused me to...

Speed limits on I-15 are pointless if they're not enforced

It has become obvious to me that most drivers on Interstate 15 along the Wasatch Front do not believe in the speed limits as posted, or at least they don't care to obey them. If the speed limit is posted at 70 mph, every driver around me seems to be doing 80 or higher — that is, until they...
