Reid needs a lesson about tolerance
July 6, 2014
Being a former congressional staffer, I know that sometimes you have to sit the boss down in a chair and tell him when to back off.
Maybe IRS could help at the border
July 6, 2014

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

Honor veterans of the Cold War
July 4, 2014
On the Fourth of July, I again will return salutes in recognition of my active participation in three of this country’s wars: FDR’s Lend Lease war before Pearl Harbor, all of World War II in the submarine force, and the Korean assault on ammunition supply ships along with other unreported recon activities.

I can’t speak for the Republican Party, but I can try to be enlightening as to what this conservative voter thinks on the issues listed in the June 5 letter “GOP should follow people’s will.”
How hunting benefits wildlife

A lot of people would love to make wildlife management an environmental issue.
Fix child care for a better America
July 2, 2014
The president has proposed a comprehensive early learning strategy to promote safe, quality settings to foster healthy child development for young children from birth through preschool-age. For many of the 11 million children under age 5, child care is their early learning setting. Yet, studies have shown that state child-care policies are weak — in fact, most states earn a failing grade on basic protections such as health and safety.
Competitive eating is a waste of food
July 1, 2014
America is the land of plenty, the land of milk and honey — for some but not for all.
It’s time to reform U.S. patent system
July 1, 2014
Small employers are doing everything they can to grow their businesses in our slowly recovering economy. In communities across the U.S., it’s the jobs small businesses provide and the consumers they serve that keep our recovery moving.
The benefits of cowboy boots
July 1, 2014
I take exception to Ken Herman’s stupid column on cowboy boots in Wednesday’s paper.
Money will keep influencing politics
