Letter: Naloxone cost

The story by Max Efrein in The Daily Courier was informational and gave good information about “spotting an overdose” and administering the lifesaving drug naloxone.

I find it very disturbing that, a few years ago, there was a big stink about advertising flags being along the highway.

Concerning Noel Dusek’s letter entitled “Trump Hater” in response to my posting of Oct. 28, 2018 (“Government and Bone saws”), I have the following to say.

Letter: Possible border wall names

A friend suggested that if we called the Border Wall something else, it might be more palatable.

Letter: $32 fee is smoke, mirrors

So the new “fee” for vehicle registration is going up $32 per vehicle when it was originally understood it would be more like $18.

Letter: Private property rights not absolute

When we bought our home eight years ago, the house included an Arizona room. Later we applied for a land use permit to build an outbuilding.

Letter: Majority?

There were two statements in Howard Fischer’s article about the increased vehicle registration fee that appear to be in conflict with each other.

Letter: Use seat belts

Three weeks ago I was hit by a driver who ran a stop sign.

Letter: Optics are bad

It breaks my heart that it seems that political correctness has spilled over to infect even Republicans who now seem to have a holy than thou purple halo shinning over their heads.

Letter: Word choice

You guys are doing better than the Associated Press, however “illusive” is not the right word to describe the behavior of the Wallaby in the zoo fire.

Letter: Widening at Granite Dells

The recent suggestion in the Courier that the city might consider widening Rt. 89 through the Granite Dells should give us pause to consider the extent to which taxpayers are subsidizing development in our area and our long-term financial liability in supporting this and other development.

Letter: Fee discussion

The story Sunday, Nov. 25, on page 10A titled “Should people living at the county’s outskirts pay more in permit fees?” should really be titled “The county is spending more money to provide building services than it takes in in service fees. ..."

With an exodus of migrants headed towards The United States we have an opportunity to challenge the ways our borders are used to separate instead of welcome.

I am writing in response to the letter to the editor regarding distracted drivers and road crash injuries and fatalities as reported by Kirby Hughes on Nov. 28.

Letter: May I have more, sir?

I want to know how a school can tell a young child that they cannot have seconds on lunch. My daughter attended Del Rio School to have Thanksgiving lunch with her daughter recently.

Letter: Scrutiny assault

Bob Lynne’s letter in the Nov. 28 Courier, “Trump’s assault on civil rights,” would be more appropriate in your Rants & Raves section.

Letter: Splitting the fat

I am responding to Tom Taylor’s letter in the Nov. 16 edition concerning recipes in the Courier.

Letter: Welcome to Phoenix North

Why the need to keep expanding the tract home builds in Prescott? Most of us moved here so we could actually enjoy close - by open spaces, clean air and uncongested roads.

Letter: Dells temptation

Yes, Councilman Jim Lamerson is right there are private property rights, but I don’t know why the City of Prescott needs to be a party to the desecration of the Dells.
