President wrong on GOP and voting
April 18, 2014
In a speech April 11, President Barack Obama spent a good part of the time chastising Republicans for limiting voting access to millions of blacks and minorities.
We lie to our kids about marijuana
April 18, 2014
I’m writing about Jackie Valley’s story in The Sunday: “Modern addiction: Our heroin epidemic.”
Lawmakers get paid to do nothing
April 18, 2014
Well, here we go again. After all the hard work it did, the House is in recess. Lawmakers can go back to their gerrymandered districts and collect money to get re-elected to go back to Washington and do more nothing.
Bundy’s win sends the wrong message
April 17, 2014
It is time for Nevada to man up and uphold the laws of the land. Since when did America start negotiating with terrorists? Cliven Bundy has blatantly broken the law and, even in the face of compromise, could not show humility or respect.
Bundy, supporters make us look bad
April 17, 2014
I hope I’m not the only Nevada resident sickened by the fact that federal officials caved in to Cliven Bundy and his band of well-armed supporters.
Putting an end to incivility
April 16, 2014
I am disgusted and embarrassed by the shoe-throwing incident aimed at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. I hope the protester is prosecuted, imprisoned or at least heavily fined.
Other landowners could use support
April 16, 2014
I have a curiosity about the Bundy supporters. They were calling out for his rights to have his cattle graze on public land without paying for it.
Mr. Bundy, please stay off my land
April 16, 2014
When my mother retired and moved to New Mexico a number of years ago, she came in contact with a number of boastful cattle ranchers. She quickly realized that the easiest way to deflate them was to ask: “And exactly how much of the land that you use do you own?” Big hat, big cattle, almost no land.
A double standard at play over Bundy?
April 15, 2014
Very interesting are the many stories in both the electronic and print medias about rancher Cliven Bundy.
Let’s not paint over Bush’s legacy
April 15, 2014
I see George W. Bush is now painting pictures of famous people.
Things are much easier today
April 15, 2014
The letter “America is in bad shape nowadays” was interesting, but my memory is very different.
Police with dogs remind of the past
April 14, 2014
The TV scenes of heavily armed federal police with their dogs ferociously barking at Bundy Ranch protesters are eerily reminiscent of the Selma, Ala., police with their ...
Comparing magnet and public schools
April 14, 2014
I am frustrated by how the obvious is overlooked in articles and letters to the editor about magnet and charter schools.
Officer’s poetry snaps stereotype
April 13, 2014
Joe Schoenmann’s story about Lt. Harry Fagel, the Metro Police poet, shatters the stereotype that poetry is written only by effete intellectuals who come out only after dark.
This isn’t the Old West anymore
April 13, 2014
The big story in Nevada today is that cattleman Cliven Bundy would not pay the Bureau of Land Management for letting his cattle graze on federal land. Bundy has even said he will obey no federal laws. So the BLM finally rounded up the poaching cows and kept the “big government” protesters away from the action in a “First Amendment area.”
