Media wants to control the story during this election

Dear Editor:

I am upset with a media that wants to control the story.

When Truman was U.S. President, he was frustrated with the media. He said that if he could go out on the Potomac and walk on water, the media would report “Truman can’t swim.”

A lot of intelligent, good people are for Trump. I take issue with Cyclops’ view of the differences between Trump and Clinton. He says that Trump is more offensive than Clinton. Trump is too disgusting for any Mormon or Evangelical touting “morality” to vote for. Really! Oh my goodness. Cyclops goes on to say that “Only poorly educated white men with beer bellies would vote for Trump.” That is elitist and insulting. If Hillary becomes our president, I may have to take up drinking.

Trump puts his foot in his mouth, but Clinton’s own is disgusting. Hillary lost me 20 years ago when she looked at all of us through the lens of TV and lied that Bill’s affair with an 18-year-old intern was “just a vast right wing conspiracy.” Turns out that there are lots of women in Bill’s life. Hillary has always known. Hillary tries to destroy them. A compliant media is never interested. Bill and Hillary have been slithering through lies and scandals year after year. Hillary lied about Benghazi, said it was about a video. She lied to the families that lost loved ones. She lied to all of us. Then she lied about lying. “What difference does it make anyway?” she said smugly.

If Satan is the Father of lies – Hillary is one of his proudest achievements. Where is the justice? Where is the media?

She and Bill have used her position as Secretary of State to get very wealthy, selling access and favors to people around the world. She is totally corrupt.

The media hasn’t changed. They still want to control the story. Heaven help us. I hope Trump wins.

Not male – not stupid – not fat – not drinking beer. Not for Hillary. I love my country and I’m worried about it.

Careful selection of new superintendent is important

Dear Editor:

At the recent WSU Richards Institute Ethical Leadership Awards Luncheon in Davis County, I stood in the line for lunch next to a gentleman who was enthusiastically telling me about Davis School District’s new math program for elementary students. He was animated and excited about how good this program was going to be for students.

How often do we get to stand in any line or crowd and hear an enthusiastic endorsement of a math program? I was deeply impressed.

That gentleman was Supt. W. Bryan Bowles who was the recipient of the ethical leadership award in 2016. He recently announced his retirement after 14 years of dedicated service. I have had the privilege of working with Supt. Bowles both as a legislator representing Bountiful and as an employee.  He has been an inspirational leader who was always inclusive in his leadership style.  

Thank you, Supt. Bowles, for being an exemplary school superintendent who respected his fellow educators and loved the students. You will be sorely missed.

To the present board of education members I offer this advice: seek a leader who understands and loves education. In these difficult times, a superintendent must have the respect of both the community and the other educators with whom she will work.  

Davis School District has always had exceptional educational leadership from the district superintendent. Maintain that tradition. The district needs a leader who is respectful of others, will be collaborative, and always puts learning first.

The community is absolutely depending on your careful consideration of this decision. It is the most important choice you will make as a board of education member.
