Bryan, you might want to choose a better topic than cognitive decline as a reason to explain why Joe Biden shouldn’t become president. Rambler in chief can go on incoherent, rambling rants with the best of them. Does that make him not qualified too?

What Ann Callison failed to mention in her opposition to the proposed Grand Targhee Ski Resort expansion are the many benefits of increased tourism. She also greatly exaggerated the issues she fears with the expansion. By expanding the terrain at Grand Targhee, the resort will become a more …

Bob Ziel’s recent letter to the editor about Joe Biden’s mental condition seems to need a response. As Bob stated, he has no medical training in this field, and I have none either, just my opinion, as he has his.

Curious how many Americans think of our Founding Fathers (not Mothers, but male, white, straight, landowners and often slave owners) as objects of adulation who were inspired by God. Curious, because they were mostly extremely well-educated, “intellectual elites”, who would be mocked by toda…

What used to be a beautiful city is fast becoming unbelievably trashy. There are weeds of every kind, size, color and style, from dry enough to burn to still green and growing on streets, alleys, vacant areas, etc., from downtown to the outskirts. It is so bad that there are areas of the cit…

Bob Ziel’s letter on Sept. 11 said: “Sorry, John R. Snyder of Idaho Falls, but Trump is anything but senile (“A senile old man is currently in the White House,” Sept. 6) as you claimed. Trump is actually a thoughtful, critical thinker.”

Bryan Smith, the Sept. 2 paper, you accuse Biden of displaying cognitive decline because he occasionally stumbles over words or uses the wrong words in a certain context. You know he has battled a speech impediment (stuttering) since he was a child. He has shown considerable strength and det…

This morning, Sept. 2, it was reported on the radio that the Eastern Idaho Public Health Department confirmed its 14th COVID-19 death. So, businesses and schools have been shut down for five months or so for 14 deaths. Our children’s education has been and continues to be negatively impacted…

This demand for unlimited freedom ignores the fact that one man’s freedom is sometimes another person’s danger. Face masks are to protect others as well as yourself. The governor and local health departments’ orders are reasonable. With a death and illness toll from COVID-19 now more than 10…

The problem is not Trump. The problem is Republicans. As Republicans, many of us thought Republican leaders would restrain Trump from committing unlawful, unethical and incompetent acts. Instead, Republicans have enabled him to do whatever he wants.

Why has no one pointed this out? We know Trump has conversed many times with Putin; we know the two have not discussed Putin’s many attempts to interfere with our democracy. Trump has never challenged Putin on any intrusions. So, what do you think they do talk about? I’m going to suggest tha…

I was interested to read Doyle Beck’s soliloquy about socialism. Trouble is, I’m not sure which side of the argument he’s on. He says that picking winners and losers with tax policy is socialism, yet he and his Freedom Foundation buddies want to remove the sales tax on food yet don’t seem to…

On Monday in Minnesota, Trump says he and God were talking about what a great job he is doing with the economy. I just kind of wonder if they talked about a little adultery now and then, or about modesty and a little self-restraint.
