The Town of Dewey-Humboldt is going to have a vote on whether to enact a franchise agreement with APS. The reasoning is that Dewey-Humboldt is the only town in Arizona without one and the town needs the money.
Do you know anyone who takes Synthroid, Crestor, Lyrica or Januvia for fun? Neither do I. Medicine is for health care purposes, strictly dosed and prescribed. When people start thinking of medicine as “recreational,” you get the opioid crisis. What if OxyContin or fentanyl or other opioids were made legal for “recreation?”
Editor: Any law that allows such high interest rates or removes limits for interest rates across all types of loans is designed to enrich the banks and credit unions.
I’ve often wondered about Joe Guzzardi and his affiliation with the so-called Progressives for Immigration for Immigration Reform.
Our elected County leadership did two clever things by 1) dropping the word “jail” (and substituting “Criminal Justice Center”), and 2) by enacting the tax first to pay for it, rather than like last time asking taxpayers if we want a new jail.
Editor: On Wednesday, Sept. 18, the Courier’s “7 in 7,” noted a number of events that were scheduled to take place in the Prescott area the following weekend.
Editor: The Empty Bowls Event committee formed from the local Unitarian Universalist groups (GPUUC and PUUF) want to thank all those throughout the community who have made this such a successful event for the last 22 years.
Editor: I would like to thank the woman who witnessed my car being hit in the parking lot of Costco on Aug. 21.
Editor: I recently had back surgery and am experiencing a very painful recovery period. I also live alone, and it is extremely difficult to move around.
Editor: There once was a beautiful city about the size and population then that Prescott is now.
Editor: Recently we witnessed a children’s crusade that ended at the UN with a 16-year-old excoriating the body for “stealing” her youth. For dramatic effect, she sailed over to the U.S. on a yacht only to have her handlers fly a crew over from Europe to sail the yacht home.
Editor: The Daily Courier tells us that they get more letters than they can publish. They tell us that letters are considered on the basis of among other things, ingenuity, strength of argument, and clear writing.
Editor: I have never been a fan of Gov. Ducey but his rant against Judge Neil Wake (Ducey lashes out against federal judge) pushed him down a couple more notches in my opinion of him.
I admit I am a newcomer to the beautiful town of Prescott. We moved here for the same reasons most others do; the beauty of the area, the weather, the “hometown” feeling of this wonderful community, etc. Imagine my dismay upon learning of the impending construction of the new adult criminal justice facility on Prescott Lakes Parkway. All I can wonder is, “Why?”
Editor: Another option on whether to shut off the electricity in high heat, is for APS to step in to show they are publicly-oriented, and offer low interest loans towards solar panel installations to help customers and save our ecology.
We need to commission a Yavapai Indian statue—to honor them (Prescott’s first residents)!
RE: Prescott City Council DRAFT water policy changes Recently I visited the city’s website to read the proposed new water policies, citizen questions, and the city’s responses.
Kudos to Rep. Noel Campbell and Daily Courier Editorial Staff for promoting and supporting additional fuel tax revenues for Arizona roads and highway building and maintenance.
Editor: I am 80-plus years old. Back in the day when I went to school, we were taught history. You know, the earth is over one billion years old and there has been climate change from day one.
Editor: I’m a huge fan of Nigel Reynolds’ column. It has taken me to a lot of interesting places I would not have seen otherwise. His Prescott Circle Trail Guide gave me, a novice hiker at best, the confidence to go exploring on my own. I highly recommend those new to the area hike the Prescott Circle Trail. In addition to becoming familiar with the area, you will see the remnants of old ranches, gold mines, springs, wildlife and archeological sites.
I very rarely write to newspapers, but I wanted to be sure and thank you for including Prescott Indivisible’s Neighborhood Summit for Equity in the Prescott Courier’s highlighting of events scheduled for Sept. 20 and 22.
I have lived in Prescott for 16+ years and have read all the articles on the available water to support the apparent out-of-control building that is taking place.
I guess I was naive when I first read that the Prescott City Council was exploring ways to get water to areas outside the city limits.
