LETTER: Southern Nevada doesn’t need more land for growth

I was disappointed to read a recent Review-Journal commentary bemoaning the fact that there was a shortage of land for new housing. We are in a critical water shortage situation. The Bureau of Land Management should keep all the land it controls, and our city, county and state governments should pass legislation to restrict new housing.

I realize this is unpopular with politicians looking for revenue from development. But if we keep building as if there is no reckoning on the horizon, we will suffer when drastic measures need to be imposed for any type of water service.

LETTER: How can we report plate scofflaws?

Is it possible to have volunteers send in information on these expired plates? I would do so if I knew someone would follow through and check their status.

LETTER: Yes to red-light cameras

The camera systems must be operated by the county and not a contractor. The cost of operating the traffic camera systems must not be dependent on the fines collected.

LETTER: Get Joe out from behind the wheel

He has driven this country the wrong way for far too long. We all know the damage a wrong-way driver can do.

LETTER: Red light cameras in Las Vegas?

Perhaps the whole problem with people endangering others could be solved if we stopped knocking down traffic tickets to parking tickets.
