Letter to the Editor: Commuter Services Lacks Empathy

June 18, 2015

I recently had to deal with the University Commuter Services on an issue involving a $20 parking ticket. After going through the complete appeals process and discussing my experience with fellow U graduate students and full-time University IT Professional colleagues, I have come away not only bitter...

Letter to the editor: Fight song should emulate U diversity

April 15, 2014

Editor,  Just a “crazy” idea: Who am I, sir, a Utah ____ am I! Is there any reason I can’t fill in that blank with any term that I am feeling at the time? This song is unique among universities and colleges in that it is an expression of who we are at the U. That term could be anything that s...

Letter to the Editor: Lagoon ‘zoo’ isn’t humane

April 2, 2014

Editor: The Wild Kingdom Train Zoo located at the “historic” Lagoon theme park in Farmington, Utah is an embarrassment. Do not let their advertisements, “The second largest zoo in Utah” fool you. Animals such as Siberian tigers, lions, a jaguar, a golden eagle, ostriches and camels are among ...

Editor’s note: The Daily Utah Chronicle solicits letters to the editor regarding columns or stories printed within the newspaper. However, with the tumultuous last week of ASUU elections, we’ve decided to publish this letter that was sent to us by Leo Masic, a member of the ASUU Elections Committee, to...

Letter to the Editor: UTA not to blame for travel troubles

February 5, 2014

Editor: I can write pages and pages on Katherine Ellis’s piece published on Jan. 9 (“UTA needs to improve its services”), but I’ll leave it to these few points: First and foremost, UTA can’t just flip a switch and say, ‘Gee guys, it’s time we stop providing substandard service to Salt L...

Letter to the Editor

October 10, 2013

Editor: Under the title of this year’s Pride Week, “Pride Has Many Voices,” it is troubling that the week’s keynote address showcases one of the most privileged voices. Dan Savage’s name is not new to controversy, especially within LGBT communities. Most who know his name, including Savage...

Letter to the Editor: AP credits benefit students

September 17, 2013

Editor: I am writing in response to Patrick Bergin’s article “U Should no longer accept AP credit” published on Sept. 15, because it contains inaccuracies throughout. Bergin appears unaware of the deep and continued involvement of University of Utah faculty in the AP Program — involvement designed...

Letter to the Editor: U.S. did not supply chemical weapons

September 9, 2013

Editor: This letter responds to the article printed in this publication on Friday, Sept. 6 titled “Syria & Sarin” (posted online as “U.S. debate of Syria attack hypocritical”, on Sept. 5) by Rose Jones. Specifically, this letter addresses the false accusations on which Jones based her art...

Letter to the Editor: U.S. should be held accountable

July 1, 2013

Editor: By Jake Rush’s definition (“Snowden’s actions show disloyalty to government” published June 17, 2013), the very existence of the United States of America is bad because men and women of the late 1700s were disloyal to their legitimate British government. Indeed, Mr. Rush’s entire article p...

Letter to the Editor: Comments on unfinished Marathon ‘insensitive’

April 19, 2013

Editor: I read with dissatisfaction the article “Marathon tragedy hits home” in The Chronicle, which reported on U students’ experiences with the Boston bombings. In particular, a student’s quote caught my attention, “You feel bad for the 4,000 people that didn’t get to finish because they clo...
