Teens’ concerns are nothing new
Jan. 13, 2016
The “Where I Stand” column by Abner Fors (“Teens aren’t entitled; there’s a reason for apathy,” Las Vegas Sun, Dec. 2) was quite interesting and brought back many memories. As a senior citizen I vividly recall how it was common belief more than 50 years ago among all teens that parents did not realize all their children’s stresses: grades, looking for a job so as to be independent, trying to find oneself, etc.
Young writers sharp and classy
Jan. 13, 2016
A quick note to say how much I have enjoyed reading the “Where I Stand” columns written by the Sun Youth Forum students. The subjects were pertinent for today and well thought out. The disagreements appear to be done with respect for each other. No name-calling or rhetoric, which is more than we can say for adults. Nice job, kids. Stay positive!
Pass laws to help seniors in homes
Jan. 12, 2016
After losing several hundred dollars to workers stealing money from my purse and now my thermal knit tops, I appeal to our legislators to pass a law that m
Don’t be angry; be informed
Jan. 12, 2016
When I read the letter “Don’t vote for Republicans” (Las Vegas Sun, Dec. 29), all I could think was: Wow! The letter writer is…
Explore a vegan diet in new year
Jan. 12, 2016
Although gun violence and traffic accidents remain the leading causes of death among young people, the most dangerous weapon for the rest of us is still our fork. Well over a million of us are killed each year by
We were tricked, but solar works
Jan. 5, 2016
I, too, put solar panels on my house at great expense, only to find out that I will not be able to pay for it over 10 years like I planned and that the added value to my property from solar does not exist. What has happened is one of the oldest tricks in the book …
No presents for solar customers
Jan. 5, 2016
The Nevada Public Utilities Commission handed out early Christmas presents — a nicely wrapped…
Don’t enact net metering changes
Jan. 5, 2016
The Public Utilities Commission should not put into effect the changes Nevada’s Senate Bill 374 makes to net metering. The changes violate the trust of Nevada’s net-metering pioneers who …
Don’t send troops to Middle East
Dec. 30, 2015
The Republican debates show almost unanimity in proposing overwhelming military force to solve the problems in the Middle East conflicts.
NV Energy must keep its promises
Dec. 30, 2015
I feel like I am getting swindled. President Barack Obama just attended a global climate change conference where nearly 200 nations agreed to reduce emissions and explore clean energy alternatives. Congress recently extended a solar taxcredits program to encourage more rooftop solar installations. Yet, NV Energy is fighting against its customers with their draconian proposals to decimate the solar power industry in Nevada.
Irony for Democrats: backing both abortion and gun control
Dec. 30, 2015
Let’s reword the title of the column by Gail Collins in the Dec. 8 edition of the Las Vegas Sun, shall we? Instead of “Pro-life, pro-guns? GOP sees no irony,” let’s just change it to “Pro-abortion, pro-gun control? Democrats see no irony.” Works for me.
Banning guns impedes rights
Dec. 29, 2015
an Bernardino radical Muslim terrorist Syed Farook was afraid he couldn’t purchase the two semi-automatic rifles used in the attack, so his friend Enrique Martinez purchased them for him. When you purchase a firearm you must …
Don’t vote for Republicans
Dec. 29, 2015
The Republicans are officially against political correctness. I was already aware they were against a lot, but this is different. No more hiding their dislike of …
English language unites our diverse nation
Dec. 25, 2015
The disambiguation of language is a first order of any society seeking cooperative ventures and accomplishments. The U.S. has been referred to as the “melting pot of all nations,” but never has it been affirmed as multicultural in nature when it comes to the language it speaks. English is the language that unites and achieves the goal of “e pluribus unum” meaning “out of the many, one,” a profound standard of America.
Utility fights to hurt its customers
Dec. 25, 2015
My name is Caitlin. I’m a senior at West Tech High School in Las Vegas, and I am concerned about Nevadans losing the benefits of rooftop solar. I testified before the Public Utilities Commission in support of net metering in November, and I write to reiterate my beliefs.
