    State critic's fuzzy math

    In his letter on Sept. 11 ("Why Tesla chose Nevada"), Tom Lindemann presented a list of complaints regarding California's elected Democratic officials, California's "highest" this-and-that, of course, had to include the "rail system to nowhere," and closed with the "dreaded … plastic bag" ...

    Community immunity

    In the past five to seven years, the significant increase in percentage of non-vaccinated kindergarten-age children is alarming. Parents are choosing not to have their children vaccinated against preventable diseases due to personal beliefs. It not only puts other children at risk, but the community...

    No dove hunters allowed

    Thank you, Dean Evans (letter Sept. 5). I also love the cooing of doves when I sit under a tree. Our place, five acres, has lots of trees, but we don't allow any shooters.

    What's the critics' strategy

    Andy Hart (letter Sept. 8) writes, "Saying President Obama should quit because he did not immediately have a plan to deal with ISIS is just as silly as most knee-jerk right-wing ideas." I totally agree. The situation in Iraq and Syria is extremely complex, and any hastily conceived actions by us...
