Spoiler Alert: For those ostriches wishing to remain with heads in the sand -- this is another citizen complaint about AED and the Dells.
Regarding recent discussion on downtown traffic safety and pedestrian crossings, I think the city should consider the pedestrian scramble intersection concept.
Echo Development annexation: The city holds all the cards; it can tell Mr. Gisi we get 500 acres around the Point of Rocks or no annex.
The Dells hold many memories of both my childhood and my adult life. Like many Prescott natives, I spent summer days as a child enjoying picnics on the rocks and playing in the grass at Heritage Park.
I recall a time when conservatives such as myself derided liberals for the cult of personality and mindless adulation which they heaped upon President Obama.
The solution to “the border issues” should reflect our country’s history of approaching issues in humanitarian ways/means rather than political slice/dice.
Editor: Reference all the photos of the vehicle crashes, too often tragic, that seem to happen daily in the quad-city area.
Our city officials seem obsessed with growth. I get it, Prescott has a huge PSPRS unfunded liability and in the short term growth generates new revenue in the form of permit fees and utility fees. New residents mean more property tax and new customers for local businesses, which turn further increases tax revenue. Sadly, this bump is short-lived.
I would rather be barefoot than wear Nike shoes. I thought hiring Colin Kaepernick as a sponsor was a slap in the face to all Americans, but the latest is a downright disgrace.
Here we go again. One of the most reliable Trump trolls has again raised his head above the swamp.
I’ve lived in this area for five years, and the parking quagmire during events perplexes me. The primary complaint about attending downtown events is people don’t want to struggle to find parking.
Wayne Compton claims that “psychologists say” that liberals are overly emotional, illogical, irresponsible self-proclaimed victims who cannot relate to our “strong take-charge, tough, get-the-job-done president who takes responsibility for everything.”
It was interesting to learn that the Prescott City Council, which seems to hold “private property rights” sacred (when it comes to the property of developers), is willing to exercise, on a unanimous vote, its eminent domain powers to take private property when it sees fit.
Regarding the political cartoon Wednesday, June 26, 2019: “Didn’t they say give me your tired, your poor” etc.
In his June 10 letter Wayne Compton tells that the Courier “reached new heights by publishing liberal Trump-hating letters” by both Bob Lynne and Larry Wonderling, referring to them and other liberals as ‘crybabies and protesters.’
It was with a ‘heavy heart’ that I read on Friday, June 21st, the notice of the passing of Jim Pike, lead singer and co-founder of The Lettermen, one of the finest singing groups to come to the top of the musical world in my generation.
Regarding the “Prescott Council hopefuls discuss Granite Dells at forum” article, aside from Cathy Rusing’s position on the Dells, it was obvious to me that the other council candidates are preparing to sell the people of Prescott in the name of more tax revenues.
With the cities of Prescott and Prescott Valley continuously annexing more and more land, allowing developers to put in denser housing per acre using more water per acre, someone needs to point out this water they are giving away doesn’t belong to just them.
This letter is in response to a letter entitled “Never agree on anything” published on June 10.
United Express is not supplying acceptable service to Denver.
Mr. Funt’s hagiography of FDR, Bernie Sanders, and socialism might have been more plausible if he had adhered to historical fact.
After reading Tom Cantlon’s recent column “Valuing Dells Negotiations,” I am incredulous. If the Prescott City Council is unable to grasp, or as Mr. Cantlon states “their focus is off target” in terms of understanding the aesthetic value the Dells brings to the City, we are doomed.
Despite the best efforts of Save the Dells, we all know that the AED Dells development is a done deal.
