News, Oct. 25, "The Pioneer of Ruin"
My daughter, who lives in Salt Lake City, mailed me a copy of Sarah Gilman's "The Pioneer of Ruin." I would just like to send my gratitude to Sarah for the interesting, well written and researched article. I enjoyed it very much. Keep up the terrific work!
Love this story!
I'm an avid reader of your publication. I am not a grammar or spelling genius by any means, and have from time to time noticed the occasional typo in your stories or advertisements that I have easily ignored. However, this week, I feel compelled to comment on the obvious error in the cover story. Where is "Grant County?" Do you mean, Grand County, Utah—where the town of Cisco is located? This is a blatant error that should have been caught by someone before publication!

[Young people] will not vote.
I think they'll vote. My 18-year-old granddaughter and her friends are all voting for the first time.

My granddaughter just voted for her first time.

It's looking like a new participation record to me.
Already 621,311 ballots returned! Good job, Utah, keep it up!
Online news post, Oct. 30, Speaker Hughes, Prop 2 supporters talk cannabis, compromise and the church
What do you expect when you permeate 40-50 percent of the population with judgmental shame and guilt? If the neighbors don't like someone, they will shun them into leaving or surely try. If you say anything about it, then, "Well, just who do you think you are?"

No separation of church and state here. Some churches really do think it's OK to break the law. Thomas Jefferson stated for them a long time ago: "Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between Man and his God, that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship, that the legitimate powers of government reach actions only, and not opinions, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should 'make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,' thus building a wall of separation between church and state."
I will never trust one thing this state does until [Greg] Hughes is no longer involved. He did not run for re-elect. Go away!
Oh, I bet he'll be running for governor ... ugh.
