Older drivers are some of the safest on the road

MH 121516 HAFB Traffic 03-2

I read Our View in the June 16 Standard-Examiner with great interest (“Utahns are lying to...

American public is collateral damage in GOP health care bill

Congress Health Overhaul Hatch

Don't be fooled: The Orwellian-titled "Better Care Reconciliation Act" to abolish the Affordable Care Act is not about fixing a broken health care system. This is, first and foremost, a tax gift worth billions to the wealthy and corporations, including profit-driven hospital, insurance and...

Thanks to all who made Corinne Pageant a success

Corinne-Utah-Historical-Pageant

The Corinne Pageant committee would like to thank all the newspapers and KVNU radio for runing articles about our pageant, a great support which notified the public about this comedic musical pageant which told about Corinne’s colorful, gentile town history. We would also like to thank all...

Stop the propaganda and print positive articles

Trump Congress Health Care

The election if over. The Democrats lost. Isn’t it time for the paper to eliminate election propaganda and print news and positive articles? When will the childish behavior stop and thoughts for the good for the country begin? Daisy Spendlove Roy

Americans should pay for their own everyday medical care

Heart Liver Transplant

Government-controlled health care does not belong in America. I don't want to hear the "but we need to control costs" excuse. Yes, we need to bring costs down — not through government control, but through American self-government. A three-tier model is ideal: 1. Private insurance (true...

GOP writes a health care bill in secret, but Dems and media are the problem?

APTOPIX Congress Health Overhaul McConnell

John Reynolds actually had some salient points in his last letter (“Democrats, biased media are tearing America apart, June 19), but then he had to go and blow it with his partisan rhetoric again. While it's true our system of government relies on an informed and engaged electorate, you can't...

Older drivers are some of the safest on the road

MH 121516 HAFB Traffic 03-2

I read Our View in the June 16 Standard-Examiner with great interest (“Utahns are lying to keep their driver's licenses. And that puts everyone at risk”). According to statistics cited by the editorial, 280 people died on Utah roads in 2016. Of that number 99 deaths were speed related,...

There's nothing funny about President Trump

McKee edit toon 6-22-17

The syndicated cartoonists for the Standard-Examiner opinion page are way out of line. My wife and I have been loyal customers of this newspaper for many years. We find these daily mockeries of President Trump totally disrespectful not only to the person but to the position. Not everyone finds this...

Let developers pay to solve stormwater drainage problem in Hooper

050615 Storm Runoff 02-1

I live in Hooper, and it seems like the only time we get a Hooper City newsletter is when they are announcing something that makes it more expensive to live here. What’s this deal about stormwater? I’ve lived in Hooper 85 years and never had a problem with stormwater. It used to be that...

Impeach Schumer and Pelosi, not President Trump

Congress Democrats-2 Schumer

I concur wholeheartedly with John W. Reynolds and his comments on the deceitful left-wing news media (”Violent protesters can't get over their disappointment that Trump won,” May 31 Standard-Examiner). The far-left news media wants to destroy the very principles we as bonafide Americans...

Trump is making America the laughingstock of the world

Trump-1 Roosevelt Room

I have never seen a president as immature, uninformed and bad as Donald Trump! I had hoped he would grow to become a halfway decent leader, but if he is going to change many minds, there is a lot of hard work to do. Lying and conning us and making up things is not working. Maybe he needs a little...
