They’re here, there and everywhere. Stores, shops, restaurants, and offices are filled with the ignorant and the uncaring — who refuse to wear face masks. With a cavalier insouciance they spread disease and death.
Here we are, COVID-19 exploding in the state. People getting sick and dying in record numbers. How did we get here?
The American people must learn from the CARES Act. As the coronavirus persists, we hear our politicians and media discussing another handout.
In regard to the issue of removing the statues of Confederate officers or soldiers, I stand firm in removing them.
I see the schools are having the same trouble with their money that the lower-income classes are struggling with.
Governor Ducey is violating our constitutional freedoms by perverting the law pertaining to emergency action!
Remember the last presidential election when Hillary Clinton, running against Trump, obtained close to 3 million more popular votes? Well, ...
As we all know, COVID-19 has deeply impacted our lives, both work and personal. From our Jurisdictions, our Rodeo, the Health Department, our local nonprofits, our schools, to our workforce, our restaurants and small business owners and beyond, I know we remain grateful for the generosity of spirit of our community as we work through so many new elements and features of our daily life and work functions and operations.
Bernie Cygan, in his “Poor Decisions” letter, agrees that pre-planning was our downfall regarding the coronavirus pandemic. However, he wants to blame the states who had the largest number of deaths instead of blaming the one man who could have saved tens of thousands of lives by admitting in February that there was a pandemic coming.
I am so heartened by establishments such as Costco or Walmart requiring masks and disappointed by others not requiring masks to be worn even by employees.
The first time I was confronted with hate was in 1965, the Watts Riots. This was the first time I heard the word racism. I did not understand what it meant, but I learned quickly. I did not understand hate.
The Daily Courier reporter Cindy Barks reported (“Coronavirus expected to have long-term impacts on Prescott’s finances”) that during its voting meeting back in April, the Prescott City Council received a report from its budget and Finance Director Mark Woodfill that the Prescott’s budget is likely to be significantly impacted by loss of sales tax revenues due to public compliance with governmental COVID-19 pandemic directives.
You don’t need to have lived in Prescott for two decades, as I have, in order to know that our town is full of friendship and strong community values. I don’t think it is an unpopular opinion to say that we all want to maintain this.
As I ponder the Fourth of July, I am awestruck by the sacrifices of our soldiers, citizens and allies to keep America free.
Editor: As one calamity after another grabs our attention, how are we to respond? Racial protests break through pent-up frustration over COVID-19, and extreme temperatures, fires, and floods are threatening.
Editor: President Trump’s Republican allies and minions, Senator McSally, Rep. Paul Gosar among them; lie and divert attention from the President’s failures almost as well as he does.
Does anyone know where I can find a BLM rule book? I need help determining which Black lives really matter.
I will always stand and show my respect for our flag and national anthem!
Regarding Prescott council vote on the AED letter of intent, I fear once again that the city council has sold the citizens of Prescott out.
It’s no secret mandating masks is a partisan issue. We know where our local leaders fall on these party lines, and I’m disappointed by what seems to be a greater concern for reelection and their careers than the health of the public.
I feel citizens can voice their opinions in a lawful way BUT once you start destroying, looting, breaking others property and vandalism our police should arrest you and put you in jail.
A short reply to Michael Peters’ letter that we can decide “where and when to wear facial masks. “— Thomas Paine’s “Give me liberty or give me death”— was to convince a convention to deliver Virginia troops for the Revolutionary War. That’s a totally different context than deciding to wear facial masks.
I feel that the June 17 editorial about supporting the police (absolutely) in the Chino Valley Review was very short sighted.
