We’ve received replies to several recent KSL editorials we’d like to share with you.

KSL recently called for a fundamental shift in the way Utahns pay for the water they use – from tax subsidies to user fees.

Arva Jones of Salt Lake City expressed the view of a number of people who responded:

"I agree that we should pay for the water we use. But only if we see the decrease in our taxes."

In another editorial KSL lamented an inevitable rise in college tuition costs, and encouraged students and parents to prepare for future increases.

Nathan Morrill, a University of Utah student offered this:

"If tuition continues to increase and government continues to trim the budget around education, then more students will be faced with the fact that a (higher) education is out of the question."

In yet another editorial, KSL urged the consolidation of West Wendover, Nevada and Wendover, Utah according to the wishes of voters in the bordering communities.

Ron Keller wrote to endorse the status quo:

"Let the free enterprise system work. If Wendover, Utah needs money, let the city fathers attract other businesses. These voters that voted for this change can also vote with their feet. They can move a few blocks over the state line."

As always, a more complete text of these and other replies can be found on our website at www.ksl.com.
