Letter: Offering a home to the voters without a party

News sources have reported on voters’ widespread dissatisfaction with their current party affiliation. Many people have left their parties, citing some version of “I didn’t leave the party; the party left me,” or “it no longer reflects my values.”  Newly unaffiliated voters might ...

Letter: Enough is enough for Tuiaki as defensive coordinator

There must be a change to the BYU coaching staff and it must be made immediately. Tuiaki must go! He is the sorriest excuse for a defensive coordinator I have ever seen. We began the season playing Arizona, probably the worst team in the FBS category. It should have been a forty-point win. ...

Letter: Great grandma’s prayer

From time to time I recall a nighttime prayer my mother taught me as a child in elementary school. It went like this: “Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray thee Lord my soul to sleep; and if I should die before I wake, I pray thee Lord my soul to take.” As I grew up, I thought there was an ...

Letter: They do that?

The Utah electorate has a problem. Voters don’t know much about the law. For example, fifty years ago, every citizen knew injury lawyers to be “ambulance chasers.” Today, after decades of dumbing down, an injury law firm on TV announces, “If you’re injured, your lawyer will come to ...

Letter: Don’t bug us, we are worshipping 

During this ongoing epidemic, the churches are performing somewhere between unevenly and quite badly. Some of the earliest and worst spreader events were at regular or annual-type meetings held almost to spite authorities. Then, when stricter policies were enacted, churches cried First ...

A heated topic currently being debated is antitrust bills and the effects they will have on innovation and the economy. However, it's important we also take a careful look at national security. Antitrust legislation would help foreign competitors, including Chinese and Russian companies, by ...

Letter: Bad air quality is hard on families with ‘preemies’

I am the mom of an energetic baby boy who adores going outdoors. Because of pollution, we have had to keep him inside. My son was born prematurely at 27 weeks. Like many preemies, his lungs are injured from life-saving treatments in the NICU, and the airways in his lungs are smaller than ...

Letter: No payday for the faithful

The Florida Department of Education says parents know what’s best for their children. So, they are withholding the monthly salaries of local school board members in districts that require kids to mask at school. Wait a minute. Don’t we have folks in society who regularly know better than ...

Letter: Living in a world of our own design

Back in February, 2003, Mormon President Russell M. Nelson published an article in the Ensign magazine titled “Divine Love” where he expressed his belief that God’s love is conditional. At that time, I couldn’t help but wonder what effect Nelson’s theory would have on those of us ...
