Before a cruise, check for safety standards

July 8, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

More than 10 million Americans will set sail on a cruise vacation in 2016 without knowing that U.S.-based travel companies that operate abroad often prioritize profits over passenger care, scrapping basic safety for expediency’s sake. My family learned that...

Oil wells’ burning gas speeds climate change

July 8, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

I am writing to you to voice my opinion about burning off gas at oil wells. This is adding to our air pollution and is harmful to our health. I believe trapping and using this gas is the answer to helping curb climate change. We are seeing it right now with...

July 7, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

Bill Clinton met with the United States attorney general, Loretta Lynch, this past week at an airport in Phoenix, Arizona. The conversation was somewhere in the range of 30 minutes. Reports stated that the conversation was about golf and grandkids. There was...

‘Yes’ to tax increase, let’s move forward

July 5, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

What to do! I have been observing, from a distance, the discussions going on regarding Yucca and Cahoon prior to and after they were decommissioned. There were probably many reasons for the closures, but that is water under the roof and water under the pool....

Weighing in on letters debate

July 2, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

I saw the letter from Phillip Nelson (June 21) and I think I agree more with Sandy Smith (May 28 letter). I’m not part of a church but I’m not gullible. I know the damage religions have done. I found out there were a few brave people that stood up for...
