  • Editorial cartoon like trash talk

    Regarding the editorial cartoon published on Friday, April 20 ... (it) shows an uneducated, biased opinion about Republicans and conservatives. Those kinds of cartoons, which obviously you select, are offensive to me and those people I know who are Republicans.

  • God-loving folks take offense

    A very divisive political cartoon on April 20 is the assault on the right by lies and distortions.

    Who on the right has ever said:  No Mexicans? End welfare? War on women? All Muslims terrorize? Hooded blacks scare us?

    These are the mantras of the far left to deflect from unconstitutional takeovers by the far left.

    As for gay marriage, just get big government out of our private lives! And, “Obama a Muslim”? His speech, acts, friends and name change at age 19 indicate as much.

  • Find a better way to treat our dogs

    I have been reading letters to the editor, pro and con, concerning the dog-tethering ordinance passed by the Las Vegas City Council. I also googled everything I could find on this subject and think I understand both sides of the issue.

    It seems to me that those opposed to the non-tethering ordinance mostly object on a financial basis. Trust me, I get it. I cannot have a Mercedes for the exact same reason. Those against tethering dogs believe it is cruel and dangerous for the dog.

  • Read and follow school policy

    Why is Principal (Steve) Sandoval being made the  scapegoat for doing a job that he has been hired to do? Most people agree discipline should start at home; unfortunately these days there are  individuals being sent into our public schools who lack the discipline and are interfering on the rights of our children who go to school to get an education in a safe and drug free environment.  

  • Standing up for a good principal

    Regarding the alleged bullying incidents occurring at West Las Vegas Middle School, I have had many encounters with Mr. Steve Sandoval over the years as a friend, as a parent of a West Las Vegas Middle School student, and as a member of our educational community. Mr. Sandoval has always treated me, and those that I have observed him with, with kindness and fairness.

  • Time to put an end to dog tethering

    It’s the 21st century, and as a nation we have stopped doing many things that were considered OK in days gone by. We no longer force small children to work in sweat shops, or forbid women to vote, or make African Americans sit in the back of the bus.

    It’s the 21st century, and it’s time for Las Vegas to join the rest of America in doing away with the cruel practice of tethering dogs.

  • Husband’s firing was unjustified

    I wanted to write this letter of utter disbelief to inform the community of a  horrible injustice happening in Las Vegas.

    Many of you know my husband “Officer Cruz.” He’s been a police officer for over 20 years. Recently, he was working at the New Mexico Highlands University Police Department under Chief Donato Sena.

  • Abuse occurring in public housing

    I live in Las Vegas public housing. I have lived here most of my life. It is mostly what I know I am also thankful and appreciative for.

    I am writing this letter to let the Las Vegas City Council know exactly what is going on here.

    The abuse that I have been documenting since 2005 that has been going on here for years is inhumane.

  • Can we trust the school system?

    On the 22 day of February my son who attends West Las Vegas Middle School was (allegedly) assaulted by an assistant football coach. On April 9 there was an article in the paper that another child was (allegedly) being harassed by the principal Steve Sandoval. What is going on with the “so-called leaders” of our school?  

  • Thoughts on anti-tethering law

    Dogs housed in fenced yards can pose public heath risks, so before mandating the “anti-tethering law” please consider the following.

    1. A chain link fence will not prevent a curious child/person from sticking their hands through the fence and possibly being bitten. Then the dog owner would more than likely be sued.
