Tesla and wise moves for Nevada
Sept. 25, 2014
Brian Greenspun, a proud owner of the best car in the world, got it right.
A horrible way to view the needy
Sept. 24, 2014
I find it pathetic that the writer of the Sept. 15 letter “Nation spending itself into collapse” and others of his mindset are so concerned about the effect of government spending on his children and grandchildren that he wants to deny universal access to health care and food on the table for those who cannot afford such things.
A major flaw in Obama’s strategy
Sept. 24, 2014
There is a great deal of debate about the president’s strategy regarding the Islamic State. Is it tough enough or is it a house of cards about to collapse due to a woeful failure to assess the initial foundation on which it was built?
Bilbray’s TV ad makes you wonder
Sept. 24, 2014
Was that a Navy Blue Angel F-18 that just flashed by in the latest Erin Bilbray TV spot? By golly, that’s what it was. Turns out Bilbray’s young daughter, Caroline, wants to be a Navy pilot. As a retired career Navy pilot, I hope she makes it and enjoys it as much as I did.
The wrong way to evaluate students
Sept. 21, 2014
My at-risk, 5-year-old students recently took a discovery learning online test. I had my doubts about the test because most of these students know fewer than 10 letters.

As you drive in Las Vegas, there are hundreds of mailboxes.
Specifics needed in health care debate
Sept. 18, 2014
I admit it: I haven’t read the Affordable Care Act, but I do read the critiques of Obamacare and the desire of some to repeal it.
UNLV needs new football stadium
Sept. 18, 2014
What are the stadium people thinking? UNLV needs a new football stadium, built to NFL specs, and it should be on campus.
The reality of smoking at casinos
Sept. 18, 2014
“Will Nevada ever see smoke-free casinos?” was a published article that I am sure concerns the majority of our local residents.
Nevada schools left shortchanged
Sept. 18, 2014
I find it interesting that the governor, who often claims education is his No. 1 priority, and the Legislature can quickly and easily vote $1.2 billion in tax breaks to attract new industry to this state but continue to shortchange our Las Vegas school system.
Blame tax system, not Burger King
Sept. 17, 2014
Regarding the article about Burger King purchasing a Canadian company named HM Horton.
Encourage healthy school lunches
Sept. 17, 2014
With the new school year, attention is turning to school lunches.
Statue sullies Johnny Unitas
Sept. 17, 2014
The indefinite suspension of Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice by the NFL is appropriate punishment for Rice’s despicable and dastardly act of hitting his girlfriend and knocking her unconscious. The NFL in July suspended Rice for two games and recently upgraded the suspension to indefinite.
