Rants & Raves: March 17, 2019

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

-I love it when military aircraft fly over. It makes me feel patriotic and reminds me where my freedom comes from. I welcome more.

-Another stupid idiot gets too close to a wild animal and gets attacked at the Wildlife World Zoo. The reason I don’t go to the zoo is the idiots on the outside of the cages who act like animals.

-I hope City Council listens to Save the Dells and the community for planning the future of the Granite Dells. This opportunity is a pivot point for preserving this priceless resource with a win-win solution.

-Kudos to Les Stukenberg’s Sports Page photo of an airborne Dana Seavey catching a fly ball. That’s photojournalism.

-Who changed the name of Ernest Love Airport to Prescott Municipal Airport? Just tossing away more of our town’s history -- shame, shame, shame.

  • I find it hard to believe that anyone would not like the military flying over. They obviously never served.

  • St. Pat’s, like Christmas and Easter, is a Catholic religious observance that has turned into a reason to vacation, party and drink. I hate religious holidays celebrated by hedonistic Americans.

  • Another day another cheating scandal involving colleges, sports and rich folk. You want me to vote to raise my taxes to pay for education, why?

The system like politics and sports is rigged. Sports need to be taken out of education.

  • If members of Congress can receive a pension after only one term without taxes, free medical care for life and “other “ financial benefits, why do our state representatives feel it is inappropriate to grant veterans a tax break ?
