At Sky Harbor Airport, I asked a police officer at the information booth if so many of the inside businesses were closed because it was after 5 p.m., or due to COVID or staffing.

This past Sunday’s production of ¡Andalusia! in our own Yavapai College Performing Arts Center may have been the best Arizona Philharmonic concert yet — judging by audience reaction: Frequent bravo’s, olé’s, and maybe the longest standing ovation for a classical concert in Prescott, ever.

Here we are, again. The world in yet another pandemic tailspin. The future uncertain and not guaranteed. We created this mess.

People across the country are asking themselves if 2022 will be a better year. The answer is doubtful, because the impact of Russia’s and China’s global ambitions are yet to be seen. Numerous bumps lay in the road ahead for the Biden Administration to negotiate.

Enough with the denial about COVID. The vaccines work and work well. It is practically a miracle that they were developed so quickly to combat a deadly virus that has killed more than 800,000 Americans.

Sen. Chuck Schumer wants to vote on “voting rights” (HR.1 & S1, Sen. Mark Kelly’s bill) right away. Why? It allows the federal government to take over state elections.

The Dec. 22 Prescott Valley Tribune’s “Our Readers Speak,” and the Courier before that, included a letter from Harvey Shaw of Prescott and addressed his views on the alleged COVID-19 pandemic.
