Does Las Vegas really have a water problem?

I have a problem with the idea that Las Vegas has a water crisis, because the actions of our local authorities do not support that notion (Review-Journal series).

They continue to approve more housing construction, which naturally will cause a drain on the water supply. If there really were a problem, they would say no to those permits. In addition, local officials allow developers to plant trees in the middle of the road. Take a ride on Town Center Drive in Summerlin and look at the landscaping. This is a symptom of water luxury, not of a water crisis.

Until the actions of the authorities demonstrate there is a water problem, I’ll just shrug it off. Their words don’t mean much without sincere actions.

LETTER: When did politics turn into a giant temper tantrum?

I see a lot of people on both sides with “temper tantrums.” How are we to teach our children if they see adults with angry words and demonstrations in the streets?

LETTER: Donald Trump isn’t great …

… but I am seriously considering voting for him next year, if only to prevent some Democratic socialist from being elected.

LETTER: On Baltimore, President Donald Trump and rats

Enough already about the rats. Michael Ramirez, in his Aug. 5 political cartoon, used that topic to get in a swipe against Baltimore and the residents of that large and historic city.
