LETTER: School trustees and Jesus Jara

I would like to thank the Clark County School District Board of Trustees for sticking the taxpayers with a huge bill. Superintendent Jesus Jara was ready to move on when they fired him in 2022. But then they rehired him, gave him a huge raise and guaranteed his contract until June 2026.

But the taxpayers of Clark County are not going to be thanking the board when Mr. Jara leaves the district prior to his contract ending.

Yes, Mr. Jara is a hard person to work with. Teachers know this. But you learn to work together. So we the taxpayers will be paying Mr. Jara for service without having his services. Thanks. We will also be stuck with the bill of looking for a new superintendent, hiring the new superintendent and paying that superintendent.

The school board has no agenda to improve our underperforming schools, but it has a great plan to waste tax money. I hope that board members actually put egos aside and work to hire a superintendent who will transform our schools into something better than they are now. The infighting needs to end. It’s time to focus on our children.

As a cop who was at not only at the 1968 Democratic convention at the Conrad Hilton on Michigan Avenue, but also the Chicago arson fires on the west side, I feel there were many reasons why the city was a tinderbox.

A lot of us walk or jog in the summer nights when it cools down. The juice vendor was a wonderful break before starting the return half of our exercise. Alas, never more.

LETTER: Where were the banks in the Donald Trump saga?

It is the bank’s full responsibility to fully vet people or businesses that are applying for loans. If bank officials are operating in a criminal, lazy or unethical way, they should be the ones on trial.

With the threat of an Iranian attack on Israel, the Biden administration issued it’s most terrifying single-word directive to Iran, “Don’t.” Unfortunately, Iran did.

LETTER: Biden’s bungles student loans, the border

Mr. Biden opened the border. He can close the border. If he does not have the authority to close the border, then he did not have the authority to implement his first action, that of opening the border.
