Letter: Fair antitrust legislation wouldn’t hurt consumers

Businesses and nonprofits that are critical of successful American technology companies united to push you and Congress to support unfair legislation. The group of institutions hosted an “Antitrust Day” on April 4, 2022, with hopes to use the campaign as a day of action to pressure ...

Letter: Another way to pay for senior lunches

For many years I have been participating in the Senior Lunches held at the Provo City Recreation Center. We have been informed that effective Monday, May 1, the meals will not be served on Mondays. The reason given is that not enough people are paying for their meals. The meals are listed as a ...

Letter: Promises a sham in Utah? 

Do Utahns really believe that a local grocer runs all their produce through a 27-point inspection every time? Or that auto maintenance plans check out everything their marketing material says they do? Or that health departments are watching restaurants closely for violations, that environmental ...

Letter: Help for families if abortion made illegal

We see in the news that some states are creating laws making abortion illegal. There is something that needs to be addressed about this issue.  If a fetus is found to be imperfect in the womb, i.e., maybe Down's Syndrome or lacks development of arms, legs, etc., etc., it would appear that ...

Utah residents concerned about the proposed Utah Lake restoration project – cleaning up lake pollution and building manmade islands covered with homes – might consider doing two things: First, do some online research: check the report from Brigham Young University about the ...

Letter: Church and state in Utah  

It is remarkable to me how far Utah’s citizens go to show disrespect for the civil law of the nation and state. One recent example among many is Senator Mike Lee’s blind mistrust of our 245-year-old electoral law and process.    I think a good part of Utahns’ behavior can be traced to ...

Letter: Put down your phone and bond with others

Connections are so hard to make these days, and so often we use our phones to avoid awkward encounters in public. It’s a safety mechanism we have built as we find more comfort interacting through a screen, and it’s making an impact in our lives. When I was in high school I loved waving to ...

Letter: Meat prices are out of sight!

Can you believe the meat price increases predicted by USDA Economic Research Service? 15% for red meat and 11% for fish and eggs! Way over the predicted 8% inflation rate, already the highest in four decades. The obvious solution recommended by nutritionists – fresh vegetables. They contain ...
