LETTERS: Container Park lessees have obligations, too

Business owners who chose to lease retail space at downtown's Container Park and are now complaining about lack of foot traffic and blaming their lack of prosperity on property management should take a closer look at their own business plans to explain their failures ("Uncontained complaints," Nov. 13 Review-Journal). I fully support independent businesses, but I also recognize new businesses often fail due to inexperience and poor decisions made by the owners and operators.

LETTERS: Sandoval takes wrong stance on refugees

Claiming that he wants to keep Nevadans safe, Gov. Brian Sandoval wants to delay relocation to Nevada any Syrian refugees ("Plan to accept refugees attacked," Tuesday Review-Journal).

Kind of like how at the library, the Bible is placed in the fiction section?

LETTERS: Fiore and Trump make quite a pair

Mr. Trump may be a great dealmaker with other business people who are equally loutish or at least willing to put up with his lack of tact, but can he really be considered presidential and represent the powerful United States when meeting with world leaders who have impulse control, manners, cleverness and diplomacy skills?

LETTERS: City, county residents benefit from shared services

In Las Vegas City Councilman Bob Coffin's letter ("Fairness to taxpayers," Oct. 25 Review-Journal, he takes issue with a Review-Journal editorial's conclusion that the city looks petty in its pursuit of payment from Clark County under the terms of a 1985 fire services agreement between the entities ("Dash for cash," Oct. 15 Review-Journal).
