Oil, not Reagan, led to end of USSR
April 6, 2014
Chuck Muth wants to name a mountain in Las Vegas after former President Ronald Reagan. Mount Reagan would be appropriate if it were hidden somewhere inside Nevada’s Sheep Range but not out in the open for all to see.
To win, GOP must get specific
April 5, 2014
For the GOP to gain control of the Senate and hold the House, it must do the following:
U.S. tax system is hurting economy
April 5, 2014
April 15 is just around the corner. This time of year, our fellow citizens are wrestling with how to best comply with the tax codes to avoid being thrown in jail or having to undergo an audit by the IRS. They are also given the bad news about how much they had to pay during the past year and how much they may or not get back.
Health insurers harming America
April 4, 2014
Competition in the health care industry does not exist. If you want to see competition in the insurance line of business, look at automobile, life or home. Better yet, turn on the TV and watch commercials. That’s what competition looks like.
School funding fails Nevada again
April 4, 2014
When it was announced that Nevada was a finalist for the Tesla battery plant, people rejoiced. A high-tech company might move to Nevada. That project was $5 billion and 6,500 jobs. However, the harsh reality is now upon us.
Seeking civil debate on climate
April 3, 2014
Recently, there was an interesting guest opinion by John Christy, “Settled science isn’t necessarily so .” It is rare to see any informed criticism of global climate change. It was nice to see that there really is an “other side” of this issue.
Let’s end smoking in Nevada casinos
April 3, 2014
A recent journal article by a senior scientist with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (“Secondhand smoke and smoking restrictions in casinos: a review of the evidence,” published online in Tobacco Control on March 7) should be a wake-up call to all Nevadans.
Being informed vs. being manipulated
April 2, 2014
The March 21 letter “Too many people are uninformed” says that it is easy to be informed. I disagree. I think it’s darned hard to be really informed.
GOP is unfriendly toward women
April 2, 2014
I’m confused! Since a corporation is not even a vapor, how can it be granted the same rights as a living, breathing human being?
Laying out the facts
April 1, 2014
Regarding the letter “Get that columnist a new calculator,” it seems the letter writer could use help, as well.
A downtown is born, not invented
April 1, 2014
There is no there! I am referring to a recent Sun article (“The boundaries of downtown Las Vegas are as fluid as its reputation”) trying to define downtown Las Vegas.
Heller understands clean energy issues
March 31, 2014
A report by the Nevada-based Clean Energy Project announced recently that at least $5.5 billion has been invested in Nevada clean energy, a milestone in the Silver State’s emergence as a national renewable energy hub. The question is, now, where do we go from here.
Children are more valuable than dogs
March 31, 2014
I care about animals, and I agree we need to take care of them, but I wish we would spend as much time and money on placing foster children as we do on the animals.
Republicans don’t have monopoly
March 30, 2014
In response to Bruce Karley’s letter, “A dollar bill to dry away the tears”:
Getting relief thanks to ACA
March 30, 2014
Hospitals in Georgia are closing due to lack of funding after the state rejected the Medicaid expansion of the Affordable Care Act. Our hospitals are benefitting from the ACA and my caregiver can now get covered for $278 a month. Health care costs are coming down.
