Elect Trump? Is that a joke?
Aug. 7, 2014
I just read the Monday letter to the editor “Impeach Obama and elect Trump.” I am not sure if this is an attempt at humor or if the writer has missed some important information.
Divided camps, divided opinions
Aug. 7, 2014
I been following the letters and opinions regarding the people who are illegally entering the United States through our southern border. It’s striking the background differences in the opposing camps.
Teacher shortage hurts CCSD’s kids
Aug. 6, 2014
There are several consequences of the Clark County School District’s annual teacher drought. The shortage of applicants may lead to the hiring of more borderline teachers, who look a lot better than many of the alternatives. The powerful people in Las Vegas and in the Nevada Legislature are willing to gamble with the education of other people’s children.
Congress’ failure on immigration
Aug. 6, 2014
It is hard to understand the outrageous response to the youth migrants flowing through our southern border. Most are fleeing other countries for self-preservation.

Don’t be boring as you grow old
Aug. 4, 2014
A big hurray for Gina Barreca’s July 25 column “I won’t take growing old sitting down.” I knew I was never going to be the “grandparent” my kids had growing up. I was going to embrace my spirit until the end.
Palestinians are pawns of Hamas
Aug. 3, 2014
In response to Brian Greenspun’s July 27 column “Seeing the facts in a world of death,” allow me to state that he is absolutely correct.
Conservatives support Israel
Aug. 3, 2014
After reading Brian Greenspun’s July 27 column “Seeing the facts in a world of death,” I must respond to his logic regarding media bias in reporting the conflict between Israel and Hamas.
Flood of refugees like a dam bursting
Aug. 2, 2014
The writer of the Monday letter “Securing border isn’t the solution” thinks all those young people entering our country illegally from South and Central America should be allowed to stay. He feels it would be a humane thing to do, and I agree with that aspect.
Machines taking over the world
Aug. 2, 2014
We are at war but blissfully unaware of the battle. Mankind is being quietly overwhelmed by an enemy that, like a boa constrictor, is slowly squeezing the life out us. Machines are rapidly taking over from humans.
Listing Obama’s accomplishments
Aug. 2, 2014
The writer of the July 25 letter “Impeach Obama to put our nation first” wants to impeach our president for “all the wrong things he has done” but never mentions what those things might be.

Aug. 1, 2014
In the July 22 guest opinion “Actually understand climate change,” Joseph Bast of the Heartland Institute says I should doubt climate change.
