What is woke? Recently, a Daily Courier reader described the term “woke” as being “aware,” yet others consider it the political mainstreaming of racism and perversion.
I was disturbed by the March 16 article in the Courier about camping on public property. My husband and I moved here almost three years ago, as “California refugees.”
My husband succumbed to pancreatic cancer in February. Throughout our 55 years together, he was fit and exercised daily. His mind was sharp and he read voraciously. In September, unexpected pain led him to the doctor. ...
Only wish this letter would be considered superfluous and thus not published because by now Congress would have passed an increase in the debt ceiling or a suspension, or ideally as I mentioned in a previous letter, abolished the debt ceiling. But as of March 21, no such luck.
In the course of live trapping and relocating pack rats where they can’t cause damage to vehicles and so on, I have learned to my dismay that it is common practice to distribute poison as a control method.
In a recent “Rants & Raves,” someone stated: “Thank you, President Biden for lowering gas prices.” I believe that is a totally ridiculous statement.

The Arizona Legislature wants to reduce the length of time an individual may collect unemployment benefits because there are so many jobs available.
The Daily Courier exhibited journalistic integrity in action when they published K. Greg Murray’s rebuttal to Courier columnist Kelly Kading’s Feb. 5 column demeaning what he refers to as activist “soft” pseudoscience.
Rep. Selina Bliss is wrong. She is the sponsor of HB 2332, which would mandate gun safety training for grades 6-12.

I read several times the side-by-side columns in the Feb. 12 Daily Courier (where Anthony Torres and Pam Kehaly blamed each other’s organizations for the current Dignity/Blues impasse) and each time I came away simply confused.
In reply to Glenn Miller’s letter about the debt ceiling, my recollection of the film wasn’t crashing into each other but driving them off a cliff, the last one to bail out was the winner!
There was a James Dean film in the ’50s that featured a scene where two young men play chicken and drive their cars straight at each other to see who averts the collision first.

I have questions for the Prescott Unified School District board regarding the adoption of the TCI social studies curriculum.

Regarding the calls to “Defund the Police,” it is painfully apparent no place is “safe.”
In regards to the letter by Harry Haff on Jan. 19: where does one start?
