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 ...

Letter: Air problems impact quality of life for all Utahns

Keeping Utah a great place to work and raise a family is critical when it comes to attracting Hispanic and Latino businesses. This is yet another reason why we need to address our air quality and climate problems. Air pollution, water scarcity and excessive heat are taking their toll on ...

Letter: Ashamed of the campaign to rename Dixie State

<h3>Ashamed of the campaign to rename Dixie State</h3>It is sad and disgusting that some people and groups have become so "WOKE" that they feel the need to change the name of Dixie State University. The excuse of "racism" is ridiculous. If more people could develop ...

Letter: A rebuttal to commentary about gun ownership

<h3>A rebuttal to commentary about gun ownership</h3>The guest opinion of Kimball Shinkoskey (Herald, June 23) is the best example of illogical logic I have ever read. It is clear from his writing that he thinks that if private ownership of guns was ended, somehow we ...

Letter: Utah wildlife managers are endorsing cruelty

<h3>Utah wildlife managers are endorsing cruelty</h3>Dog fighting is illegal because it is widely recognized that canines deserve not to be subjected to such cruelty, yet it is perfectly legal to torture and kill coyotes in Utah. Animal cruelty is abominable to most, ...
