The Meaning of Memorial Day

My trek to Utah from Virginia brought more culture shock than some of my travels abroad. A major observation was how Utahans celebrate holidays. I had never seen houses and yards all out decorated for Halloween nor Christmas lights that stayed lit through January. Fireworks on July 24 were also a...

Past time to fix local roads

POT HOLES 1.JPG

Have any of you ever driven up 7th street from Washington Boulevard to Harrison Boulevard? That road goes by Ben Lomond High school. A very busy road.

Running first race very satisfying accomplishment

On Sunday, May 20th, I read with interest and amusement Mark Saal's account of his first time running a race. I, too, am a 59-year-old who ran a race for the first time on Saturday, May 19th.

Getting help in time of need

I wanted to express my thanks to the many thoughtful people who stopped to offer assistance during our time of need. They supplied us with water, tissues, and offers to call an ambulance.

Trump haters, radical Democrats leading a coup against the president

Not since unrest of the civil rights riots in the 1960s and the Vietnam War riots in the 1970s have we, in my memory, had a more contentious social landscape. The trifecta of distrust – Trump haters, radical Democrats and deep-state desperadoes have formed an unholy alliance to destroy a...

Idaho benefits from Utahns who play the lottery

I drive a delivery van for a local company and I make drops in a lot of Utah and Idaho cities. As I travel Idaho, I notice a lot of Utah drivers at the lottery locations. I, too, am guilty of dropping a few dollars and usually lose. I do win a few dollars here and there, but I figure I drop an...
