Last month, the American Medical Association issued a press release that urged U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services to process more H-1B visas, thereby allowing more nonresident physicians to come to the United States to practice medicine.
Les Moonves, the CBS chief toppled by a sexual harassment scandal, will probably be best remembered for what he said in 2016 about Donald Trump’s candidacy: “It may not be good for America, but it’s damn good for CBS.”
The Daily Courier over the decades has swung right, far right, middle, left, and middle again.
What makes a great team athlete? Physical strength, speed and ball-handling skills for sure.
It’s surprising that a White House incapable of organizing a two-car funeral — if you believe the mainstream liberal media — is presiding over the most robust economy the U.S. has had in years.
There is a new meme circulating that Trumpistas have found very pertinent. It’s a stark black-and-white photo of a seated Trump. One elbow is on his left knee and his other hand is gesturing toward the viewer as he leans forward.
The federal government is looking to extend or increase subsidies to farmers, and raise the ethanol content in gasoline to 15 percent — possibly year-round. I am not a fan.
Officials in states hit by Hurricane Florence are on the lookout for “price gouging.” These are “bad people,” said Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi angrily during a previous storm. Bad people?
The imperishable words “Hulk smash!” aren’t just for green super-heroes anymore.
The new hotel deal the city just made (see the Aug. 24 paper) has some good points but had some bad process. Here are some suggestions for improving it.
Despite a 2010 law that requires federal agencies to describe rules and regulations in plain language, most government writing is STILL unintelligible. I met with my federal-bureaucrat mole, Deep Gib-berish — and his interpreter — for answers.
As many of you undoubtedly saw in Sunday’s business section of The Daily Courier, I was recently promoted to news/sports editor for the Prescott News Network, which includes the Courier, the Prescott Valley Tribune and the Chino Valley Review.
In the history of television, during which thousands of network entertainment programs have come and gone, only one show has produced new episodes in each of the last eight decades: “Candid Camera.” What a remarkable feat.
Congressional Republicans continue to abet and excuse Donald Trump’s relentless assaults on democratic norms and the rule of law. But if we were to focus on one particular guy who best embodies that spinelessness, someone who is a veritable metaphor for a party in moral eclipse, I strongly nominate Ben Sasse.
“Stubble” is my middle name. No, not really. But I do find myself occupying that No Man’s Land…er, LOTS of Men’s Land… of not wanting a beard but not enjoying the whisker-removal process, either.
Tucked somewhere between nosiness and meanness is what Miss Manners aptly called “blather.” It’s when people say thoughtless things because they aren’t thinking.
Talk of the Town
Prescott City Council was in a real rush late last month when it approved the contract for construction of a Hilton Garden Hotel on city park property.
The stories of chaos, craziness and betrayal going on inside the Trump White House are nothing to worry much about.
The county supervisors are considering a cellphone and texting ban while driving. A public hearing is set for Wednesday, Sept. 19. It is ironic.
I just zipped down a city street on an electric scooter. It cost me 15 cents a minute.
After a recent Chicago Cubs and Pittsburgh Pirates matchup, a reporter asked Bucs manager Clint Hurdle if he worried that the game had become “too sissified.”
For many years, I have been hearing that iceberg lettuce is a worthless form of green leaves that should be shunned and even banned from the kitchen. I don’t have any evidence of it, but there’s probably an organization out there somewhere carrying signs blaspheming iceberg lettuce and demonstrating against all it stands for.
As a college freshman in the fall of 1978, I spent countless evenings camped near the TV in the dorm lobby.
The antithesis of Donald Trump and his administration can be studied, at least for those willing to drive 150 miles south from Atlanta, among magnolias, towering pines and seemingly endless fields of cotton, peanuts — and dreams.
On Sept. 11, 2001, I was driving along the Beltway to a Falls Church, Virginia, office building when a radio announcer said a plane had flown into the North Tower of the World Trade Center in New York City.
