Native Americans ignored on July 4
July 10, 2014
In response to the July 4 editorial “An extraordinary moment,” it is appalling to me that not one word was mentioned about the Native Americans who occupied the Americas for more than 10,000 years before we pale-skinned immigrants arrived to displace them and claim this continent as our own.
Thanks to EMTs at Cashman Field
July 9, 2014
I would like to take the time to thank the medical staff at Cashman Field. During the Las Vegas 51s game Thursday, I became ill during the seventh inning. That’s when the 51s rallied against Salt Lake, so I missed seeing them win and the great fireworks display afterward.
Is Trump just playing politics?
July 9, 2014
Billionaire Donald Trump said July 2 that the U.S. will have a financial collapse this year. This means we have less than six months to put our house in order or face financial ruin. Are we to believe what Trump is predicting will happen in a few months’ time?

Reid needs a lesson about tolerance

Maybe IRS could help at the border
July 6, 2014
Regarding the invasion of illegals at the southern border, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said the president is trying to “ramp up the resources that are necessary to meet this growing need.”
Parents have lost control of children
July 6, 2014
What has happened to our country? When my children were growing up in the ’60s, they could play outside for hours, coming home only for food. I never worried about them. When it was time to come home, I would whistle and kids came from every yard to see whose parent was calling them.

Nevada’s 3rd congressional district, according to the Sun, is a swing district, which means that Rep. Joe Heck must campaign hard to defeat his Democratic opponent, Erin Bilbray.
A history lesson on the Fourth of July
