Question in black type - Answer from our Readers in blue type  

#1.  With the energy problems we are having in parts of the United States do you think the vast number of lights in Las Vegas should be reduced, eliminated, or left as is?   WHY?

*  The light issue that we are all faced with today is in need of attention from all of us everywhere. Ive been to Las Vegas once and of course it was an experience one NEVER forgets ...LIGHTS ....LIGHTS>>>>and MORE LIGHTS... !!! But I feel that its those lights that are not visable to us all such as Bathroom lights. ..and all those little in and out areas that do not need constant lighting...WE all know just where those places are in each and every one of our homes and businesses ...and it is all those little areas that can add up to a mighty powerful source that could be conserved if we took that FLASH of a moment to TURN IT OFF. Lets all think about what you can do to conserve and then JUST DO IT !!Then we will ALL make a difefrence EVERYWHERE.... Kathy Bell  Tacoma , WA


* The energy problems we are experiencing in this country are totally man-made; I live in Washington State, and we are directly affected by those "rolling blackouts" in California. Reducing, or shutting down Vegas' lights isn't going to affect the situation either way-This is a political issue all the way around. If I am not mistaken, the only time the lights have ever been dimmed in Las Vegas was when Frank Sinatra passed on-In my opinion, it should stay that way. Renie-Snohomish, Washington

*  While I enjoy the sights with the magnificent lighting displays along the strip, I believe the casinos could contribute to the conservation effort somewhat.  As a visitor, I am rarely up in the wee hours of the morning. Are the "lights" burning all night; always? Is there a lighting fixture efficiency (life of the fixture) or cost penalty in shutting down these huge displays for 2-3 hours every day?  Is there an option to shutdown, reduce or in other ways, lessen the power drain during selected early morning time periods, when very few (relatively) folks are out on the town? While I realize that many of the mega-resorts are into the "I'm the best...come play in my sandbox" mode, some relaxation in their use of electricity should not harm their business at these early hours.  Jim Mercik

*  Yes. They have way too much unnecessary hype. It is the inside of the casinos where we spend most of our time that lure us to the town. The world is over-populated; fast becoming depleted of any fossil fuels, and like it or not conservation is becoming a necessity. A 10% cut in electric consumption would provide a lot of comps to the players at the tables and machines.  hbh from Maryland. 

*  I think they should leave them alone if they have the money to pay for the light bill.  Although, if they start to cut out different player programs to help with the cost, the lights can go.  Carl Z.

*  The lights should always be bright in Las Vegas, to heck with the conservative people that always want to save something.  Mathew CA.
