Letter: Stay out of Nevada’s business, Stewart
First Published May 01 2014 04:43 pm • Last Updated May 01 2014 04:43 pm

So freshman Congressman Chris Stewart wants the BLM to use local law enforcement rather than federal agents to enforce the law. I recently visited Overton, Nev., population 3,700 souls. It is an unincorporated town which relies on Las Vegas Metro Police (63 miles away). How many police officers should Las Vegas, population 600,000, send to the desert to confront armed rednecks fired up by Sean Hannity?

Mr. Stewart, please take a lesson from Gov. Herbert and mind your own business when it comes to other states.
