Letters to the editor

It is incredible the amount of false information that the right wing has been putting out about President Obama, which, unfortunately many people believe.

For example, a recent letter in the Nevada Appeal tried to excuse Romney's failure to release multiple years of tax returns by reciting a list of President Obama's supposedly "sealed" files. The idea that any Obama records are "sealed" is a falsehood. I refer Mr. Troolines and any readers who believed his report to ( is a nonpartisan, nonprofit "consumer advocate" for voters that aims to reduce the level of deception and confusion in U.S. politics.

Citing false information does not excuse Mr. Romney from giving voters the information they need to vote intelligently. He should get in step with everyone else who has run for president in recent years and release multiple tax returns.

A few weeks ago, I went to Les Schwab at 3020 S. Carson St. to get my vehicle tires rotated. The technician told me the front struts were leaking and needed to be replaced.

Today, I brought our car into the shop for the new struts. I received a call a little while later and was informed by Chris that I didn't need new struts. Apparently the original technician had observed fluid or gunk at the bottom of the struts and thought that they were leaking and needed to be replaced. When they went to install the new struts today, they realized that they were not leaking and contacted me with the good news that I saved over $650.

Yes there was a misdiagnosis, but I must commend the crew at Les Schwab, S. Carson St. for being honest. All they had to do was replace the struts and I would not have known any difference.

I have been impressed with the level of service that this Les Schwab franchise has shown me since I have been going there over the last two years.

In this day and age, you don't see this level of customer service and honesty from companies. I really appreciate the customer service at Les Schwab Carson City!
