    Tax hike should have gone to voters
    I read your “Spend It Wisely” editorial this morning, and it has me a bit upset. We are going to be forced to pay a higher taxes that we are not allowed to vote on? Since when do the people not have the right to vote on whether or not our taxes are increased?

    In addition to paying more taxes, it says the moneys are going to be spent on road repairs. This would be fine if the county was doing the job correctly.

    School Priorities
    “Wouldn’t it be nice if schools allocated their budgets first to the classroom, and then what’s left to administration? Teachers could be given good salaries, good enough to attract and keep the best.
    Classrooms could be supplied with the best books, materials, and supplies. Students could graduate with the knowledge and skills necessary to land a good job (somewhere) and have enough to support themselves and a future family.

    U.S. must condemn both sides
    I was horrified to learn that Secretary of State John Kerry has declared actions of the Israeli government in Gaza are “legitimate and appropriate.” The targeting of civilians and civilian infrastructure is never ever either “legitimate” or “appropriate”.

    No shame in standing up for beliefs
    There should be an inalienable understanding that the “Fiestas” are in celebration of our people, our talents, our accomplishments. It is fitting that our Vegas All Stars, Little Leaguers, veterans, school clubs, civic organizations, Fiesta royalty and our nearby communities be celebrated.
    Our attention should not be diverted from the greatness of community by an undeserved slap in our faces by Alfonso Ortiz’s poor judgment again.
