In an Oct. 13 article by the Sun's Timothy Pratt, the director of the Clark County Social Service Department stated it is a myth that people seeking assistance need to show up hours before the office opens.
Yet by 8:30 in the morning, they are already turning people away. Since the office does not close until 4 p.m., how could they possibly know so early in the day that they won't have time to see these people?
Perhaps they could work more efficiently and try a bit harder. Expecting the sick and elderly to make multiple trips to the office should be the last resort, not the norm.
