Re: “Soap Box: May 4-10

Scotty Furash,

I just recently moved to Utah from Maryland where I found the sport of Camogie (or Hurling) and fell in love with it. I know there isn't a big Irish community in Utah, but I've been trying to find a way to keep with it. I've found several different older posts online of people looking to build a team/club, but not sure how to bring everyone together. Thoughts?

Re: “No Love for Motorcycles at Airport

I agree. Recently moved to SLC and for short trips, motorcycle riding to the airport is convenient, efficient, low pollution and space efficient. I had that in the Detroit Airport for free, which was well-utilized and incr doubly space efficient. Considering the volume of motorcycle riders in the area, and the convenient good weather, free motorcycle parking at the airport would be a major plus for everybody.

Re: “You've Been Sprayed

Not only are they spraying chemtrails they are spraying mega amounts of pesticide in the parks and down residential streets ON TOP of the refineries spotted all along the Wasatch Mountain Range spewing out God knows what noxious gases, 24 hours a day....I came to this city because I thought it would be clean and healthy. I am so disappointed. This place stinks like a dirty toilet in a gas station all the time and for miles and miles in any direction. I'm leaving this hell hole!!! And you folks who are in denial about any of this needs to check out Charli's list above about where you can obtain your "proof", I've done my research! Only rediculously unawakened, uneducated, fools would make statements as idiotic as yours David Harris, we all hope you're just a paid troll and not so stupid as to be that niave to even remotely believe this isn't in anyway true. When you or your family starts having severe respiratory issues (and I see tons of people toting those oxygen tanks around here), starts showing strange allergies,developing tumors/cancer from those insidious chemicals maybe you'll do something about doing something to stop it. Maybe you'll just act...hopefully before it's oo late for the babies and the grandmas or grandpops or any one you love...if a person like you is even capable of love. You fit the bill for the most pitiful mind-controlled smuck award! Seriously, wake up and don't be so foolish. Get yourself educated!!

Re: “Soap Box: Sept. 29-Oct. 5

I just signed up with City Weekly. Yesterday I was banned from the discussions on The Salt Lake Tribune. I wasn't given any reason but I've been critical of the Tribunes political endorsements and of a certain Editor. I had about a dozen comments removed all at once and then was banned! The Tribune needs to be reminded that Freedom of Speech is still a right in Utah!

Re: “Letters, June 30, 2016

Ted Ottinger's relentless fact starved attacks on the LDS Church have become as predictable as the sun rising in the east. It would be easy to ignore his rants and just look the other way. But silence would imply agreement with his blatantly false statements and characterizations of LDS doctrine. L.Tom Perry never, ever, said "No one has the right to ever question the LDS leaders or any of the church's writings." Quite the opposite in fact as he was well known for encouraging anyone and everyone to ask questions and to direct those questions to the church leadership, to dig deeper, to study early and current church history and resolve any doubt or question one might have. And not one single LDS state legislator has ever been given direction from church leadership on how to vote. But Mr. Ottinger really takes leave of facts with his fairly tale about supposed dissenters being denied the opportunity to "copulate with a plethora of young girls on one's own planet". Ted, if you can find any reference to any such nonsense anywhere in LDS teachings, writings, conference talks, or any other source I will personally pay the annual bill for your I Hate the LDS Church support group.

Re: “Letters, May 5, 2016

Thank you for speaking up for something that was scary and difficult. Im sorry you were never honored or asked about your own feelings. Its does sound like your girlfriend may have gotten all of your support but you got nothing. Im sorry she chose to be selfish. Ive been put in a situation where I got pregnant and recieved no support. I chose to have and keep my daughter. I was scared and terrified. But I did have an ex-husband who helped me and we were able to get re-married. Every situation is hard. And until your there its better never to judge. God bless friend.

Re: “Letters, April 28, 2016

A revenue neutral carbon fee with a dividend, makes enormous sense!
Economists and scientists say it is the best solution to the threat of our carbon emissions.

It is not a tax. This way citizens would RECEIVE the carbon fees as a monthly check, for example. That would protect us from price spikes in dirty energy.

Polluters PAY the fees, so it holds fossil fuel corporations responsible for the damages. or externalitites, they cause, hundreds of billions of dollars per year (Harvard School of Medicine).

It would more rapidly lower emissions than regulations, as happened in BC Canada with a similar, popular policy. BC lowered both emissions and taxes with their fees.

A study by respected non-partisan Regional Economic Modeling, Inc. found the dividends would help to create 2.9 million additional jobs in 20 years, while reducing emissions much faster than regulations. http://citizensclimatelobby.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/REMI-National-SUMMARY.pdf

To those who reject the science: perhaps nothing will change your mind. But what have you got against cleaner air, less asthma in our kids, fewer heart attacks, and more money (the dividend) in your pockets?

To those accepting the science: Any effort to
 limit the problem of climate change is worth it. For example: the cost of sea level rise ALONE is so great that no effort to prevent it is unwarranted.

Why even bother with the paid deniers and front groups who thrive creating the delay of a false debate?
Elon Musk was asked "what can we do? " Musk: "I would say whenever you have the opportunity, talk to the politicians. Ask them to enact a carbon tax. We have to fix the unpriced externality [social cost]. I would talk to your friends about it and fight the propaganda from the carbon industry."

In 1956 the federal government issued a congressional gold medal to the final two surviving Confederate soldiers.
On one side was a Confederate flag.

Re: “Letters, Feb. 11, 2016

Well written letter Jonathon Jones. Short, to the point , and impeccable logic. Some of the blowhards on the hill would probably agree (in private of course). Matter of fact , you should send the same letter to all the flats up on the hill and to the other 'news'papers in the 'Kingdom of Zion'. Truly , do it. andre lambeau
