Funt: No Oscar host? No problem!

It seems this year’s Academy Awards will be conducted using a no-host format, now that Kevin Hart and his dossier of homophobic wisecracks have been officially ruled out.

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.

Friday Catchall: Little bird furthers Dells development debate

The debate continues over Save the Dells versus Arizona Eco Development. (I should state “talk” continues because one side speaking out does not make a debate; the City of Prescott and AED have been quiet publicly.)

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.
