  • Tethering can be more humane

    When the wealthier are robbed they submit their claim to their insurance and get all the money back for their items that were stolen. When the poor are robbed they suffer greatly, not being able to replace anything.

  • Postal Service reliable, efficient

    The U.S. Postal Service, or USPS, has provided reliable and efficient service since 1775. I can attest to the past seven decades.

    Congress and Senate are addressing the most recent proposal to “shut down” services and contract out delivery routes.

    House bills HR1351 and House Resolution 137 are to be acted upon and the U.S. Senate is also deliberating on the same issue.

    It is critical that the Postal Service continue to provide six-day service.

  • Mil Gracias - May 4, 2012

    This letter is to thank and commend the staff at Alta Vista Regional Hospital for their excellent care and customer service during my husband’s recent stay due to pneumonia.

  • Highlands gala was too much

    Your coverage was lacking. We couldn’t find, in all the color photojournalism, any mention of the coronation date/time, etc.

    Now we know how the 1 percenters live and whoop it up.

    All this and King Fries demands a tuition increase, from his loyal subjects, for the gilding of his throne?

    ou’ve got to admit — it was a bit much.

  • Allow cougars to live in NM

    Please allow cougars to live in peace in your state. It’s thanks in part to your wonderful state that we have wildness left in this country.

    Please continue to safeguard that heritage for future generations. Thank you for caring enough to stop the advancement of these hunts.

  • Mil Gracias - April 30, 2012

    Casa de Cultura, Tri-County Farmers Market, Barter Hours and Farm to Restaurant Project Main Street wish to extend their mil gracias to all attendees to the third annual Las Vegas Seed Exchange, “Compartindo Semillas” at Luna Community College.

    Special thanks to Adrienne Obrien, Luna Culinary Arts instructor, and the Culinary Arts Club for preparing a delicious lunch of native foods.

    Thanks to Luna administration for providing the venue for the third straight year and assisting us in creating a tradition that can only grow in the future.

  • 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.
