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?
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Get that columnist a new calculator
March 29, 2014
Columnist Michael Hiltzik needs a math lesson. His criticism in Tuesday’s Sun of Abby Huntsman’s views on the insolvency of the Social Security system were far off base.
Step in the kitchen, you may get burned
March 29, 2014
I admire and enjoy the letters that readers submit to the Las Vegas Sun expressing their opinion on a variety of issues, many of which are political in nature. Everyone has an opinion and the right to submit it to the Sun for possible selection.
Columnist’s head is in the clouds
March 28, 2014
I was very disappointed that the Sun bothered to publish John Christy’s opinion piece, “Settled science isn’t necessarily so.”
No, columnist was spot on
March 28, 2014
Explain to me how we have global warming when we have the two coldest winters in 35 years as measured by the Great Lakes ice cover.
