Regarding the Letter to the Editor of Jan. 14 by Isabel Cerecedes referencing the flag code and the Prescott Valley resident flying the Trump flag.
I would like to thank Tim Wiederaenders for his mention of Outlaw Dirty Money in his Catchall column on Jan. 16, “Friday Catchall: Media, money at root of influence.”
I received a reply to a letter I sent to Sen. Martha McSally.
The killing of Iran’s General Qassem Soleimani is but a continuation of an armed struggle that haunts a large part of the world.
Regarding the issue of flying another flag underneath the American flag. Prescott Valley Mayor Kell Palguta supports the right to fly a Trump flag (or any other flag) underneath her American Flag. Here is the danger of that.
B Lynne’s Aug. 23 column of J. Fowler’s Aug. 14 column is a distortion of what was written.
I was amused with the Jan. 1 articles on the Second Amendment. It is a shame that we as a nation do not know how to look at a report and be able to properly analyze information and statistics.
Editor: Political advertisement banners are not about “Freedom of Speech.”
Re: Our line in the sand (Save the Dells). I just have to ask, who is the “Our” to whom Ms. Fields refers?
The article in the Dec. 28, 2019, Courier concerning above normal precipitation in 2019 quoted Dr. Nancy Selover, state climatologist, as saying:
Yes, there can be “over-regulation,” just look at the miserable state of California.
What kind of country are we anyway? We give huge tax cuts to the wealthy who, instead of using them to create jobs or, let alone, train people to do the jobs, they hire already trained people from other countries. And Wall Street is thriving — unlike so many lower-wage U.S. citizens.
I was impressed this past Sunday with a phrase my pastor used in his homily; “Our journey here is much too short.”
I couldn’t believe the misinformation and half-truths about gun deaths on New Year’s Day from Harry Haff.
Democrats have now impeached the President. Is this a unique behavior on their part or does it follow a prescribed course of action?
As we look at a new year and decade, I know I’m not alone in feeling the divisiveness and polarization exploding in our country.
Editor: There has been a lot of complaining by some Republicans and threats of “if you impeach our tribal leader we will impeach when a Democrat is president.”
Editor: Re: ‘No closet? No bedroom,’ Dec. 22, 2019. The City Council surprisingly struggles over the idea of giving rental properties a pass on the City Code (requiring a bedroom to have a built-in closet).
Making Yavapai County a 2nd Amendment Sanctuary County on its face is inviting more trouble, and again misinterpreting what the 2nd Amendment actually says.
There is a misconception about common sense gun control. No one wants to take away people’s guns, but that is the war cry of gun owners and the NRA. One wonders what they are afraid of.
It’s difficult for me to grasp why the City Council would even consider taking any position other than “rejection” of plans to put a subdivision even closer than they already are to The Dells.
Editor: I oppose the first item on the Yavapai County board’s agenda — a proclamation in support of the Second Amendment.
Editor: The Board of Supervisors on Jan. 2 will consider a proclamation for the Second Amendment! Seriously? It is already in the Constitution, and this nonsense gets top of Sunday’s page 1; while at the bottom of page 1 is a story of gun violence labeled as a gun “accident.”
The Yavapai County Contactors Association (YCCA) was invited to participate at the Cash for College Scholarship Awareness Night held Dec. 2 at Yavapai College.
