Must Ducks Die? 

Pin It

ABC 4 News did a very brief story that showed dead ducks in Sugar House Park’s pond. To this day, no one’s concerned, yet everyone sure saved Fourth of July fireworks from dying.

If the pond were drained and 4 to 6 feet of mud were removed, the water could circulate and these innocent birds would be spared their terrible deaths.

Chevron oil is not responsible, but in an act of good faith, they certainly have the resources to accomplish this.

Twenty-five million dollars is being spent by the Redevelopment Agency up the street on the Sugar Hole project. Why not bring their backhoe a few blocks east, while the weather permits, and care a little about saving a life rather than a dollar?

  • A Strange and Barbaric Practice

    In the well-written City Weekly cover story on circumcision ["Circumcision Decision," Sept. 17], the God of the Jewish, Muslim and Christian religions is credited with beginning this practice: God demands that the 99-year- old Abraham cut off his foreskin in order to prove his loyalty.

  • Mike Noel's Resistance to Reason

    I enjoyed Colby Frazier's cover story about state Rep. Mike Noel, R-Kanab ["The Herd Bull of the House," May 14, City Weekly]. I attended the Great Public Lands Gamble Rally at the Capitol in January 2015, at which Noel audaciously stepped up to the microphone to attempt a refutation (the gospel according to St. Mike) of the "lies" being perpetrated by the proponents of public lands.
