May 7 2014 - 5:10pm

Editor,In reading the May 6 letter, "Recent racism issues merely a smokescreen," I knew it would be a matter of time before someone spoke out about rancher Bundy and NBA owner Sterling's right to freedom of speech being violated.  But, I offer to this letter writer and any of those that feel these two men have a right to voice their opinions...

This occurs daily. Better, highly visible warning lights should be installed. Lane marking is almost gone. The road at the junction just...

Editor,A few months ago I was diagnosed with whooping cough. I thought whooping cough went out with the Dark Ages. Was I ever wrong! I suffered with this for weeks.

May 6 2014 - 4:39pm

Editor,In response to the April 28 article, "Report: Gay marriage would bring $15M to Utah," duhh! Wedding planners, bridal and tuxedo shops, jewelers, florists and divorce lawyers: don't they have a right to double their incomes?
