Welcome to Age of Trump

There’s not an hour of the day that goes by when something Donald Trump said, did, or was involved with is not constantly replayed on every major cable network. While everything he says or does is certainly newsworthy, much of it is little more than lies, wild exaggerations, and insults...

Healthy oceans need sharks

Being from Salt Lake City and wanting to be a marine biologist may seem strange, but the oceans always fascinated me. Although I ended up moving to New York to model, I still carry that passion with me. That’s why I support legislation that would help one of the ocean’s most important...

Hope lies ahead

This week my heart broke. My heart broke for our country and the people who lack civility and truth. My heart broke for our democracy and the leaders in it who think that they can say and do anything they want without consequence.

How many of your readers have realized that America has just had its first COUP? Wake up people… A Coup is when there is an organized attempt to over throw a government from within - In this case the United States of America… something no American ever dreamed to be possible. It was...

Facts necessary in economics discussion

John Reynolds is entitled to his personal opinion as expressed in his letter to the editor on June 22. However, his opinion typically lacks documentation. He wrote about the lack of recognition for progress made in jobs and economic growth. To the credit of the Trump administration, the economy was...
