Dixie Thompson and Tom Draschil are to be commended. They have both discussed issues affecting Utah: land, life, liberty. They have refrained from the childish attacks that have left Bill Orton in office for too long. It is refreshing to not have those underhanded "cheap shots" but to have a primary that is charged with issues.

I called Utah Power recently also. They said they are not endorsing Dixie Thompson and that campaign signs posted on utility poles are illegal. As a longtime politician, Dixie knows and said it best, "I'm surprised someone running for Congress doesn't know the rules."John Schmeltzer
