I feel compelled to write about the Kirkland Mine Plan because I feel it will rip the heart out of Yavapai County.

Letter: Healthy debate?

In response to Toni Denis’ comments concerning Trump’s speech in which she failed to explicitly and forcefully condemn hatred and racism and who tried to muddy the national conversation on race by indulging false equivalences between violent white supremacists and those who fight back against them.

Letter: Where's the cash?

Column: Trans people face enough, they don’t need more

During the uproar of Chino Valley’s Town Council considering a bid to put a motorsports facility at Old Home Manor, then-Mayor Chris Marley offered some sage words:

Letter: Mining heritage

I find it extremely interesting that there is all the apparent opposition to a mine in Skull Valley given that this newspaper regularly publishes articles on the history of Prescott, which would not exist except for the earlier miners searching for and/or digging out the valuable ore in the area and then needing a place to get a drink.

Letter: Thanks to all

The family of Marlene Love would sincerely like to thank everyone for the love, support and kindness shown during our time of grief.
