Keep track of your pets

My wife and I are dog lovers, as are many, many other people. That said, please dog lovers and owners, keep track of your beloved pets. As we travel back and forth on the streets and roads between Ogden and Salt Lake, we see dogs on the loose, roaming in the streets and trying to dodge traffic. We...

Real enemy is those in power

A snopes.com fact check found Trump’s claim that existing immigration laws required separation of children from parents is false. The separation of children at the border is a result of a change in policy made in May by the Trump administration. The objective of this policy change is...

Ogden needs realistic ideas to advance

(The June 3 Stanard-Examiner) was an excellent study in two visions for improving the economy in Ogden, one that helps consultants and developers get richer, and one that helps actual people. Consultant Stuart Reid’s apparently unpublicized study, for which he was paid $187,500 of taxpayer...

Gage Froerer is a Humble and Effective Servant Leader

I have had the opportunity to work closely with both James Ebert and Gage Froerer, and wish to share my experience with Gage Froerer’s remarkable leadership style. I first met Gage before I held any political office when I contacted him as a constituent. He personally responded, and genuinely...

Don't torture to enforce laws

Romney comments include dire warning

I read carefully the article in Friday's Standard Examiner, Page A-9, entitled 'Romney Predicts 4 More Years for Trump', and double checked with other sources that Romney actually made the 2 comments I find so interesting; the sources validated the legitimacy of the reported comments. 1. He...

Another view of Memorial day

For many of our Utah families the holiday weekend started on Thursday or Friday, when the graves were decorated, including for us, a son and nephew who served but came home. TCM had a steady stream of war stories – stories of bravery and sacrifice at home as well as abroad. These lasted...

Death by gun problem is a human problem

Kay Combe joins John Reynolds and me (and many, many more folks) in agreeing that our death by gun problem is fundamentally a human problem; evil or imbalanced people who get their hands on guns. Reality is that we don't know how, nor do we have the will (Constitutional issues and huge amounts of...

Time to clean house in Davis County

I know that we are getting a new sheriff in the county but the buck shouldn't stop there. We (citizens of Davis County) need to clean house and replace both county commissioners that are up for re-election. Because apparently the current commissioners were either in awe of the sheriff or they had...
