Thanks for push on solar bill
June 23, 2017
Why would Congress want to get rid of this essential tool? The fact is, interest deductibility drives economic growth, and eliminating it would ultimately be a tax hike — one that could put at risk the million jobs projected to be created in 2017. ...
Don’t emulate other autocrats
June 23, 2017
This fellow seems to enjoy emulating Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Rodrigo Duterte and other autocrats around the world. This is not what we expect from an American president. ...
Praise won’t fix character flaws
June 23, 2017
I remember seeing Donald Trump ginning up his base in some campaign rallies by asking them to make a pledge of loyalty to him. ...
Time to ban animal acts
June 20, 2017
In the wild, elephants roam in large social herds for miles per day, eat fresh vegetation and bathe in mud holes. In circuses, they live lives of confinement, shackled in boxcars, fed bland diets of hay and denied everything natural to them. They travel in weather extremes that are unsafe and unnatural to them. Taking elephants from the wild to perform in circuses …
Blame owners, not pit bulls
June 20, 2017
Three recent dog attacks here in Las Vegas, one of which was fatal, have once again drawn our attention to the much maligned pit bull terrier. However, pit bulls have the deck overwhelmingly …
Gun editorial was off-target
June 17, 2017
Your May 4 editorial on universal background checks in Nevada was incredibly lazy. ...
Minimum wage hike a wash

An increase only delays a return to the same place, a temporary condition. ...
Stop ‘training’ wild animals
June 16, 2017
I feel compelled to respond to the June 1 letter to the Sun regarding the care of circus animals. ...
ISIS violence hits new low
June 16, 2017
My heart bleeds for the innocent victims of this horrible and senseless bombing in Manchester, England, and I proffer my deepest sympathies to them and to their anguished families. ...
Gold Butte is a national jewel
June 16, 2017
I was introduced to Gold Butte’s 350,000 acres in 2010 when I moved to Las Vegas and started hiking in the area. I was amazed at its beauty and awed by its American Indian cultural history. I was surprised it did not have a protected status. ...
Dems’ strategy could backfire
June 15, 2017
It has become obvious that Democrats are suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. ...
Putin’s words spur questions
June 15, 2017
It is interesting that Russian President Vladimir Putin believes U.S. Democrats are shifting blame for their presidential loss to Russian interference and insists that Donald Trump won thanks to his skills, as was reported in a June 3 Associated Press article in a local newspaper.
Solar bill a home run
June 15, 2017
On May 24, I testified before the Nevada Legislature in favor of Assembly Bill 405, sponsored by Assemblyman Chris Brooks. The bill passed both houses and will be signed into law by Gov. Brian Sandoval ...
Trump voters got taken
June 10, 2017
The author of a May 30 letter to the Sun (“Trump voter offers advice”) states that he voted for Trump because Trump was “rich, successful and didn’t owe anyone.” ...
Climate issues start at home
June 10, 2017
I agree with Brian Greenspun (“Let’s leave childish behavior to 2-year-olds, June 4) that our planet is warming. This should be readily apparent to anyone who can read a thermometer. ...
