I was at the BLM rally on the plaza in Prescott on the 4th of September and I was appalled. I am not from California nor do I have a problem with that state. I am not a liberal, until four years ago I was a moderate independent.
I’m a newly retired teacher, and have lived in Prescott Valley for only two years, and moved here with my new husband. Sadly, just when my husband and I were getting to know neighbors, fellow bowlers, and other teachers, March 2020 decisions caused quarantines, social distancing, mask wearing and depressing news day in and day out.

This is not a political statement. This is a question from a downtown business owner for over 20 years. Why was the protest on the courthouse plaza Sept. 4 as we welcomed the tourists arriving for the Labor Day Weekend?
Do we really NEED to build a new jail during these uncertain economic times? Major corporations, government entities and small businesses have all had to pivot and adjust to the current economic realities that COVID-19 has created.
When it comes to President Donald Trump’s income tax cuts, where are people getting their information? It does not interfere social security.

For years I’ve been reading letters in The Daily Courier about how our teachers are so wonderful, dedicated, underpaid and “make the world a better place” according to Lori Dekker. Being a retired company president, I know that the bottom line is measured by results, not talk.
