Probation not enough for animal abuse

Barker Park doesn't need amphitheater

I applaud the couples who sued over the amphitheater. I hope they appeal. The Barkers must be turning over in their graves at the planned commercialization of the park.

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...

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...
