Feel free to tell yourself that Donald Trump chose Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court because the guy went to Yale (Trump reportedly loves Ivy League creds), or because the guy has been thoroughly vetted by the Heritage Foundation and the Federalist Society (the right-wing groups that have long been funneling conservative judges to the bench).
Recently, business reporter Harrison Jacobs accurately described China as a “techno-authoritarian” state.
I remember fondly “The Paper Chase,” that 1973 movie about a first-year law student.
I was remarking to my husband the other day about how much I’ve enjoyed knowing, at least in passing, a number of people who play significant roles in the Prescott area.
Having moved around as much as I have in the past 10 years has given me the opportunity to experience a wide range of climates, including the Rocky Mountains in Colorado, Central Oregon Coast, Sierra Nevada in Northern California, North Shore of Lake Tahoe, and High Desert of Arizona.
You may not have noticed it amid the White House’s bluster on NATO this week, but Congress utterly face-planted in its effort to rein in President Donald Trump’s ever-escalating global trade war.
Each week in The Daily Courier we post photographs of pets that need “forever homes,” as the Yavapai Humane Society says it, but some people cringe at certain breeds.
Warren Farrell was once considered a feminist leader. He hung around with Gloria Steinem and wrote about why men and women should break out of rigid old gender roles.
Maybe a new Utah law will revive the lost art of parents calling their children home for dinner.
We’ve been receiving calls and questions concerning our website becoming subscription-based access on Tuesday, July 17.
There’s an article on immigration that is informative and gives solid steps that could improve things in a balanced way.
If you’re getting ready for summer vacation, here’s a handy checklist of things you won’t need. A map. Remember those? I’m referring to the kind you got for free at the gas station.
Arizona’s founders created the Corporation Commission to address concerns about the influence of public utilities, to ensure protection for consumers, provide a fair return on operational costs and infrastructure investment for telecommunications, pipelines, and railways, and guarantee reliable energy and water.
Retiring Rep. Paul Ryan, R-NeverTrump, has revealed what he hopes will be his lasting political legacy; he intends to be the last Republican Speaker of the House. Ever.
Harmony! My, how you have changed!
A desire to continue to reduce the amount of stuff I’ve been lugging around the western United States for the past 10 years has led me to a number of thrift stores, all of which have graciously accepted everything I have donated.
If you stay in the news business long enough, you’re inevitably going to run into a reader who has a grievance – sometimes legitimate, sometimes not – against their hometown newspaper.
The Fourth of July in northern Arizona was without fireworks, with Prescott Valley and Chino Valley making it unanimous earlier this week.
We celebrate the Fourth of July because that’s the day the Declaration of Independence was signed, 242 years ago.
This column has tackled some pretty daunting topics over the years. For example, who else had the courage to investigate and report about goat heads and gophers and to reveal the tragedy of advertising spokes pigs appearing on your television screen without pants, where the Popsicle came from and the lowdown on the platypus?
My advice to Democrats - which I’ve offered for free since the dawn of this century - is that they pound this mantra into their thick skulls: “It’s the Supreme Court, stupid.”
Burgers on the grill, great discounts at retail stores and amazing fireworks — that’s why I love the Fourth of July!
I understand why the national media is so obsessed over the story of children of illegal immigrants being separated from their parents at the Mexican border.
