Islamic State poses moral, political threat that can no longer be ignored
Wednesday, September 2, 2015
OTHER VOICES:
The Islamic State atrocities have descended like distant nightmares upon the numbed conscious of the world. The first beheadings of Americans had the power to shock, but since then there has been a steady barrage of inhumanity: mass executions of Christians and others, throwing gay men from rooftops, the destruction of ancient archaeological treasures, the routine use of poison gas.

Trump speaks now, does harm later
Monday, August 31, 2015
OTHER VOICES:

Sunday, August 30, 2015
guest column:
Last September, I wrote an editorial urging our Legislature to come together and pass the economic incentive package for Tesla in Northern Nevada. At the time I stated, “Let’s pass this historic legislative package and get to work following the same blueprint for the future success in Southern Nevada!” One year later, I can report we used this landmark bill as our blueprint and are on the verge of bringing Faraday Future, an economic game changer, to our region.

Jeb Bush must live up to his punctuation
Sunday, August 30, 2015
OTHER VOICES:
