Letters to the Editor

Letter: Reject ranked-choice voting

September 14, 2022, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

Ranked-choice voting may sound like a great idea in theory, but it is a dangerous change to the way we run elections. When there’s no clear majority winner, it turns into a point system where the winner receives the most points through several rounds. It’s a confusing and convoluted process… Read story

Letter: Debt forgiveness is bad idea

September 14, 2022, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

Biden wants inflation. The $10,000 of student loan forgiveness for people making up to $125,000 could help some people temporarily, but does not address the tripling of college costs since 1980 and cancels any possible benefit from the so-called Inflation Reduction Act. This will transfer nearly $400 billion of federal… Read story

Letter: Honor Queen Elizabeth II

September 14, 2022, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

Queen Elizabeth leaves us after 70 years of service to the United Kingdom. She was an exemplar to the world of performing one’s duty with decency and dignity. Read story

Letter: Plenty of hot-button issues

September 14, 2022, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

My letter to the editor in June pointed out the extremism on both sides of the political ledger (“Extremists on both political sides,” Our Readers Views, June 17). Reproductive rights and gun rights are two prime examples of this political polarization. Read story

Letter: Support Kimsey for auditor

September 14, 2022, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

After viewing Brett Simpson’s website I have no difficulty supporting Greg Kimsey for Clark County Auditor. Hosting a video trailer for the discredited documentary “2000 Mules” on Simpson’s campaign website is enough to demonstrate that he subscribes to the view (or deliberate fear tactics) that is designed to denigrate our… Read story

Letter: Supreme Court is flawed

September 13, 2022, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

In the wake of the United States Supreme Court ruling overturning Roe v. Wade, lots of Americans are questioning the integrity and impartiality of the court. What took so long? Read story

Letter: Corrupted by lies and dishonesty

September 13, 2022, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

Trump, MAGA Republicans, election deniers are a clear and present danger. The party of Lincoln, the law and order party has been taken over by conspiracies, extremists, law breakers and dictators. The present Republican Party is a danger to democracy and America. Read story

Letter: Ridgefield should listen to teachers

September 13, 2022, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

Ridgefield teachers are on strike. They worked hard all summer, since June, to negotiate a contract with the school district. The district officials dragged their heels, wasted precious time, disrespected teacher leaders, and, generally, failed to listen carefully to what the teachers were asking for and why. Read story

Letter: Beware of rolling blackouts

September 13, 2022, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

I want to address the ongoing rolling blackouts in the West. What the officials won’t acknowledge is that the problem is not the weather. I suspect the problem is the number of customers. Read story

Letter: Loan forgiveness is unhinged

September 12, 2022, 6:00pm Letters to the Editor

If you buy something, you pay for it. If you take out a loan for an RV, a house, a boat or for your college education: Pay for it! That’s not on me to pay for your debt. Suck it up and pay for what you bought. The Democratic Party… Read story
