Tri-cities need a bus service
Chino Valley is a bedroom community and a commuter's paradise. However, if one at Road 2 South counts the number of vehicles going south at 7 a.m., and those heading north at 4 p.m., he or she would be amazed at the total count. Consider the polluted air, too.
I'm sure our city leaders are cognizant of at least a partial remedy – an early morning bus "out" and a late afternoon bus "in."
Chino Valley could successfully apply for a government subsidy.
Why not, Mr. Tenney?
Nightwalkers need protective clothing, gear
There seems to be a lot of you out here in Chino Valley, both town and county, that are putting your lives in danger at night.
Just drive around any night on one of our narrow roads, most lacking sidewalk space, and you will probably see one or more people walking or jogging in the dark – sometimes a whole family. No one is wearing any reflective clothing or carrying a light of any kind.
Many of you are walking with the traffic instead of against it. When walking against the traffic, you can see what is coming. Bicycles, of course, go with the traffic.
Do you know or care that the drivers can't see you until the last minute unless you wear reflective clothing or carry a light? Even at 25 mph, you are apt to get hit or if the drivers swerve to miss you, he or she could have a head-on with an on-coming vehicle. I'm sure that no motorist wants to be responsible for injury or death of any of you night- walkers.
Please, one, take a light with you and use it; two, wear reflective clothing; and three, walk against the traffic.
CV Lions/Lioness clubs take no political stand
The Chino Valley Lions and Lioness Clubs sincerely thank all of their old and new friends for attending the Annual Pancake Breakfast held at the Senior Center on Aug. 31.
This community always supports the Lions at our fund-raising events each year and this year was certainly no exception. All of the profits from our pancake breakfast will go to help our less fortunate neighbors of any age who have sight and hearing problems throughout the coming months.
Every two years it seems that we see lots of politicians at the First Territorial Capital celebrations and events. Candidates for many elective offices were participants in our parade, ate chili in the park, served corn at the Annual Corn Dinner and also showed up bright and early at our pancake breakfast. While we welcome them to our town and the breakfast, the Lions Club wants to make sure that everyone knows that our club is a non-political, non-sectarian, service organization. Under our constitution and bylaws, the club may not contribute any club funds to any political campaigns nor endorse any candidates in any elections. We have never considered either of these actions.
At our recent pancake breakfast, there were some questions raised about the presence of political candidates at the event. We wanted everyone to be absolutely clear that the Chino Valley Lions Club endorses no candidates in this or any future elections.
Thanks to all who enjoyed breakfast with us.
