As COVID continues to plague our nation, I am utterly disappointed by the responses of Prescott Valley Mayor Kell Palguta.

For much, if not all, of my adult life, I have avoided the annual fall campaign calling for everyone living under the sun to get a flu vaccine like the plague itself. No, I am not an anti-vaxxer, and no, I’m not denying the vaccine from entering my body because of a religious belief of some sort. Admittedly, I just never felt it was necessary.

In the weeks since the Prescott City Council and City Manager Michael Lamar announced their plans for the $5.1 million in CARES Act funds that the city has received through the state, there have been several letters to the editor suggesting that the funds could be better utilized meeting the current needs of citizens negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

I’ve worked during my life to develop a reliable vocabulary. Don’t know why, particularly, but it was kind of fun adding an obscure word to my verbal arsenal even if I rarely used it. I have at last reached a point in my tenure that I can understand most of what I hear but less and less of what I see on TV each night, but that’s another issue.

Rabbi Shapira was in the habit of taking long walks into the countryside each morning. Throughout his life, the rabbi tried to be loving and compassionate. He made it a point to greet everyone he met with a kind “hello,” “good morning” or “good evening.”

I was at the BLM rally on the plaza in Prescott on the 4th of September and I was appalled. I am not from California nor do I have a problem with that state. I am not a liberal, until four years ago I was a moderate independent.
