LETTER: On the Oakland A’s

So the A’s not only want a $1.5 billion ballpark, they also want to play some “home” games elsewhere (Wednesday’s Review-Journal). As I recall, a majority of locals were not in favor of bringing the A’s here. Something like 70 percent were opposed. But as always, local politicians know what’s best for us despite our input.

Let the bums stay in Oakland where they belong. There are myriad and better places here to use the money we will save.

LETTER: Trump tries to win Nevada

Mr. Trump advocating for tax-free tip income is definitely one approach to winning Nevada. But my tip to Mr. Trump is to pick Marco Rubio and show the diversity of the GOP.
