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.)

Ten states and Washington, D.C., have now legalized adult use of marijuana.

Letter: Not bound by loyalty

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.

I would like to know what all of us would be doing if the Indians had built a wall all around this country of ours.

Letter: Air impact

I am still disappointed that the Kirkland Pozzolan Mine got approval without conducting an environmental impact statement.

Letter: No credit

So Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin calls up the six biggest U.S. banks, from his vacation pad in Mexico no less, in a failed attempt to reassure investors that the banks had “ample liquidity” to serve borrowers.

Micek: What would Jefferson think of the government shutdown?

WASHINGTON — It was a perfect post-Christmas day, as I watched tourists move in concentric circles around the Jefferson Memorial at the far edge of the National Mall.

Funt: Binging makes an unhealthy TV diet

In 2019 I resolve to cut back on bingeing. Not at the dinner table — although that would be wise — but at the TV.

Letter: Thanks for the push

Thanks so much to the two strong working men who pushed our small pickup up the grade on Pioneer Parkway about 9:30 Monday morning (Dec. 31), otherwise we’d still be stranded now at noon with all the others having difficulty.
