Sandoval faces battle on tax plan
May 5, 2015
I hope to see some type of compromise between the “no-new-tax wing” and Republicans/Democrats who are for the bill. With the sustainable funding of Nevada’s educational system …
Metal is a piece of H-bomb artwork
May 5, 2015
I walked on what was left of Atoll Flora in 1968 after a big storm hit the Marshall Islands. The waves had washed a small path on the westside, and I saw what looked like …
Preservation is worth the effort
May 4, 2015
With the recent observance of Earth Day (April 22) it seems fitting to recognize many of the incredible places we have in Nevada that help to make our state home.
Water conservation efforts inadequate
May 4, 2015
California is far back at the end of the line in regard to conservation of water.
Lessons to learn from California
May 4, 2015
The column by Rep. Norma Torres of California (“While drought compels California to take action, others shouldn’t wait,” Las Vegas Sun, April 27) demands the state act immediately to upgrade its water infrastructure. Her admonition, unfortunately, is decades late and will produce solutions that are economically damaging and socially inequitable.
Where’s opposition to Iran nuke deal?
May 3, 2015
It’s impossible to calculate the outcome of the irrationality being negotiated with Iran relative to a nuclear agreement. The senseless chaos arising from these negotiations is reflected in the mullah’s outrageous bargaining over a nuclear mitigation deal while increasing their domination in the Middle East in Yemen, Syria, Iraq,Gaza, Lebanon and even spreading to South America.
Not enough people want to admit truth
May 3, 2015
In my opinion, far too many Americans are unwilling to admit unpleasant truths.
No remorse shown for ‘big lie’
May 3, 2015
So, a liberal devised a plausible lie with the apparent intent of discrediting the political opposition and is now seemingly proud of his falsehood and wants the story behind it spread far and wide (“The big lie,” Las Vegas Sun, April 26). Yawn.
Make the Savannah Nevada’s state cat
May 3, 2015
Bravo to Jerry Gordon for his brilliant suggestion that Nevada needs a state cat (“Forget official dance, get a state cat,” Las Vegas Sun, April 26). If I may, I would like to offer for consideration the amazing Savannah cat.
Lands are worth preservation
May 1, 2015
I fully support and applaud Sen. Harry Reid’s efforts to instill permanent protection of some of Southern Nevada’s most treasured lands. I am hopeful that Congress and the White House will see the benefits of keeping these lands open to the public rather than viewing them as a commodity better suited for corporate consumption or to appease a rancher-turned-sensationalized-cult-hero.
Pet owners need to be held responsible
May 1, 2015
Are dogs or cats endangered species? No, they’re not. But polar bears, great apes and countless others are due to habitat loss and climate change. Man-made and our problem.
Too much hype for weekend’s fight
May 1, 2015
I’m not one to purposely dampen anyone’s umbrella, but all this hype about a fight? It’s obviously too much for the public to endure.
Thanks to EMTs, hospital staff
April 30, 2015
On April 22, while walking outside I took a nasty fall, resulting in a profusely bleeding, deep laceration to the scalp of my forehead. It was necessary to call the …
Killing coyotes is a necessity
April 30, 2015
Coyotes are so numerous that no special permit is needed to shoot them on sight. If you’re in an area where shooting is legal, you can …
Metering caps not in state’s best interest
April 28, 2015
Capping the solar metering program at 3 percent, supported by NV Energy, seems almost criminal. Along with that, we have a governor who remains …
