Got something on your mind? Tell us about it in 40 words or less.

  • I would like to express appreciation to the wonderful person who found my gloves in a shopping cart and turned them in to the Walmart customer service desk on Iron Springs Road, Jan. 2. Thank you for being honest.

  • Senior News Editor Tim Wiederaenders’ snow column hit the nail on the head. People just need to slow down and be patient. We should all be thankful we got the snow and be smart about it.

  • Why does the Town of Prescott Valley think so little of people with a physical disability, that they don’t clear the wheelchair ramp after snow and allow the only ADA bathroom stall to sit broken in the Civic Center?

  • As precinct captain for the Democratic Party here in Prescott, I’d like to suggest to my buddies, let’s leave the president alone from impeachment. Let’s leave this wounded animal alone. Hostile moves against the president will create sympathy.

  • Nightmare or reality? The fix appears to be in for a sweetheart deal between City Council and Arizona Eco. Citizen priorities to be ignored. Mayor to mysteriously create new water supplies. Developer ecstatic. True? We’ll just have to wait and see.

  • Refreshing to see growing outrage toward mayors and councils (Prescott/Prescott Valley) regarding lack of transparency and condescending attitudes favoring greedy developers! They show no regard for what makes the area so attractive to live and visit here.

  • If the cleaning of Congressional and White House bathrooms was performed by the laid off federal contract workers, the shutdown would be over.

  • What goes around comes around. Trump cutting off FEMA aid to California wildfire victims will come back to haunt Yavapai County residents who voted for him some day. A pox on all of you.

  • Prescott’s a casual town. That’s part of why I’ve loved it for 40 years. However, when dining at a quality restaurant, even casual folks can muster up something that’s in better taste than a T-shirt. And, lose the baseball cap.

  • Why is Gov. Ducey “trying to fix a problem” that doesn’t exist? Adding the federal income tax deductibility restrictions to Arizona’s income tax requirements without offsetting the change with increased personal deductions will cost taxpayers more than $170 million.

  • Why are the U.S. Senate and House getting paid? If they care so much about the workers they should give up their pay and let the people who they work for get paid. They are more to blame than Trump!
