I couldn’t tell if George Will’s column “Planned Parenthood shows nation’s barbarity” (Las Vegas Sun, Aug. 6) was a movie review:

Tesla’s arrival in Northern Nevada shows if we build it, they will come
Sunday, August 30, 2015
guest column:
Last September, I wrote an editorial urging our Legislature to come together and pass the economic incentive package for Tesla in Northern Nevada. At the time I stated, “Let’s pass this historic legislative package and get to work following the same blueprint for the future success in Southern Nevada!” One year later, I can report we used this landmark bill as our blueprint and are on the verge of bringing Faraday Future, an economic game changer, to our region.

GOP candidates’ boasts are frightful
Sunday, August 30, 2015
letters to the editor:
Watching the GOP debate I couldn’t help but cringe in fear. They boasted proudly of bringing down unions, overhauling Social Security and eliminating Obamacare.
County quickly fixed storm damage
Sunday, August 30, 2015
letters to the editor:
In mid-June a storm caused damage to a portion of Twain Avenue at Edmond Street. The damage was virtually invisible from the road, so I sent an email to the Clark County Public Works folks with photos of a dangerous situation in which another storm would collapse the sidewalk and start undermining the street. The email address was [email protected]
Sanders’ weapon is his fire

OTHER VOICES:
There was a man with a “Stop Puppy Mills” T-shirt and another whose shirt read “National Sarcasm Society.” There was a woman, dressed entirely in white, holding a banner reading “Lead Us to Clean Energy.” There was a man with an Apache haircut. There was even a little old lady in tennis shoes.
Simple steps can prevent drownings
Thursday, August 27, 2015
letters to the editor:
Nothing is more heartbreaking to me than a child’s death. As a parent of young children, I am deeply saddened to learn that 2-year-old Israel Hall died in a drowning at his northwest Las Vegas home (“Toddler’s death in Las Vegas apartment hot tub probed as drowning,” lasvegassun.com, Aug. 4). Within the past few weeks, there have also been two near-drownings in neighboring communities, leaving one toddler in critical condition (“Toddler in critical condition after being pulled from pool,” lasvegassun.com, Aug. 5).
Trump, like Cheney and Romney, is an elitist draft dodger
Thursday, August 27, 2015
letters to the editor:
As a World War II veteran, it is always irritating to me that most rich people can avoid military service. I’m thinking about Dick Cheney, Mitt Romney and now Donald Trump, who were able to avoid the draft for the Vietnam War.
Jeb Bush mixes messages about Iraq ‘victory’
Wednesday, August 26, 2015
letters to the editor:
Jeb Bush, GOP presidential candidate, has said American and allied forces won a hard-fought military victory in Iraq during the 2007-08 surge. He also claimed Hillary Clinton, as secretary of state at that time, stood by as the military victory was thrown away. The military offensive better known as the surge (2007-08) is a deeply flawed statement, claiming the war had been won by President George W. Bush, and that Barack Obama was the president who lost the war. Another big lie.
Net-metering system is fair the way it is
Wednesday, August 26, 2015
letters to the editor:
Say this to yourself three times: Solar roofs are not wholesalers to NV Energy; they are for homes. The current net-metering program is fair for all. Currently, when installed, solar roofs are limited to 100 percent of the kilowatt-hours the homeowner used the previous year. Doesn’t that sound like the program is devoted to each home and not a wholesaler for NV Energy?
Same-sex marriage ruling is just one step to equality
Monday, August 24, 2015
Guest column:
As a lifelong advocate for LGBT communities and the advancement of equal rights for everyone, I was ecstatic to hear of the Supreme Court’s decision to make same-sex marriage a fundamental right across the country. Obergefell v. Hodges forever will be remembered as evidence that “love wins.”

Common Core standards are sorely needed in Nevada
Sunday, August 16, 2015
Where I Stand:
We all know Nevada students have historically underperformed compared with those in other states; they are way behind in reading and math scores. We know Nevada has one of the lowest high school graduation rates in the nation. We have heard that a high percentage of first-year students at Nevada’s universities ...
