Letter: Smuggler’s blues

A primer on how to not smuggle drugs on Interstate 17 and Interstate 40. For 14 years my wife and I have been reading the Prescott Daily Courier. Occasionally an article appears about “X” number or pounds of “Y” drugs confiscated on “Z” highway.

Letter: Job test

I have been watching and listening to some of the president’s latest talks, and it got me to thinking how he would do if serving in some important local public offices.

Letter: Native Americans

There are two issues that jump out in today’s headline articles. One is the plight of the Indians and services on the reservations.

Letter: Guns, guns, guns

In the Tuesday, Nov. 20 edition, you published two articles about people and guns. One was an actual event with a gun in front of Sprouts.

Our local small businesses donate more than twice as much per sales dollar to local nonprofits, community events and sports teams compared to big businesses.

Letter: Helping hands

Thanks beyond words to you who assisted and witnessed the auto vs. pedestrian (me) incident which occurred in the Prescott Valley Safeway parking lot at 3:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 13

Letter: Chip seal – why?

This method to resurface our streets has had me wondering for years, is it less expensive? It certainly is not, in my estimation, a better solution.

Letter: Paving the way

We invested in the Town of Prescott Valley decades ago. We wanted to encourage our children and grandchildren to live and work here.

Letter: Iconic Dells

When we retired four years ago we moved from Mesa to Prescott, in part, because of all the wonderful natural beauty we see here.

Letter: Catchall critic

In Senior News Editor Tim Wiederaenders’ Friday Catchall (Jan. 11) he appears to be misinformed.

Letter: Gun show control

Regarding stories and editorials about newly proposed legislation for expanding background checks, I am all for adding a few hurdles for obtaining guns.

Letter: ‘Do Not Call’ me

Most people I know get several unwanted telephone solicitations each day even though their phone numbers are on the “do not call registry.”

Letter: What’s the problem?

There have been many articles written about the comments made by Rep. David Stringer, both pro and con, from First Amendment rights to he’s racist.

Letter: Durst dirt

I was very disappointed to see Will Durst’s column back in the Jan. 5 edition of The Daily Courier after an absence of many, many weeks.

Letter: Wall, barrier, whatever!

I’ve wanted to write for months now, where to start? This country is so divided!

Letter: Not bound by loyalty

People who place an extreme value on loyalty have always scared me.

Letter: Giddyap and go

I want to respond to letters in the Jan. 1 edition regarding race relations. When we were considering moving to Prescott from central Texas we noticed the racial makeup of the area as about 95-plus percent Caucasian and hoped that this did not mean Prescott might be a bit of a white enclave, unwelcoming to people of darker-shaded skin.

Letter: Helmets no panacea

RE: Helmet survey. It is wrong thinking to believe that just forcing helmets on motorcycle riders will solve the rider injury problem.

Letter: Forget the wall

I would like to know what all of us would be doing if the Indians had built a wall all around this country of ours.

Letter: Air impact

I am still disappointed that the Kirkland Pozzolan Mine got approval without conducting an environmental impact statement.

Letter: No credit

So Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin calls up the six biggest U.S. banks, from his vacation pad in Mexico no less, in a failed attempt to reassure investors that the banks had “ample liquidity” to serve borrowers.

Letter: Thanks for the push

Thanks so much to the two strong working men who pushed our small pickup up the grade on Pioneer Parkway about 9:30 Monday morning (Dec. 31), otherwise we’d still be stranded now at noon with all the others having difficulty.

Letter: Water protection

To our elected representatives, we ask that you inform the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission of your opposition to the closed-loop pumped storage hydro power storage plant proposed by ITC Holdings for a site near Seligman, Project 14859-000.

Letter: A challenge

I’d just like to state my take on David Stringer: The man was elected a few months ago by a respectable margin.

Letter: Thanks, neighbors!

Beautiful snow storm on Monday, Dec. 31, 2018. Grateful to bring husband home from the hospital, grateful for the care at YRMC.
