Before people become outraged at the treatment BLM groups receive here or in any city they would do well to recognize it is impossible for most nonpartisan people to see the difference between BLM and any racist organization.
I heard a true story of disgust in our community back in August. Figuring my reaction was that of painful acknowledgement of today’s confusion, I ignored the wrong doing at the time. After all, what could I do about it?
I am a widow of a man who spent almost 25 years in the Navy — saw war, came up the ranks and passed away a little over four years ago. He retired at CWO-4 /E-9.
There has been a lot of news lately regarding mail-in voting and the potential for fraud and ballots not arriving in time to be counted.
In regard to the letter in your Sept.16 paper about President Trump’s current policy regarding not withholding Social Security and Medicare taxes until Jan. 1.
Regarding: 17-year-old arrested for allegedly brandishing gun at Cottonwood party.
Let me get this right. Alfredo Salvidar is reported to be driving erratically as speeds reaching 100 mph, he strikes another car, injuring a woman, tried to ram a police car and jumped a median continuing to try and get away from law enforcement.
Why are so many media and other institutions still using the concept of “race” in articles, questionnaires, polls, and other such formats?
Regarding: “What are the numbers behind Proposition 208?” (Sept. 16). This editorial refers to Proposition 208 as being only about public schools. Indeed, the title of “CHAPTER 10.1” in the proposition indicates such.
Almost daily I read angry letters from citizens who are directing that anger to the mayor, the city council and the supervisors. Apparently the voters feel the policies being instituted by these two political bodies are detrimental to the community.
I’m responding to the letter, “Helping People,” in the Sept. 16 edition of the Courier. The writer is wrong when she writes that the payroll tax deferment will not interfere with Social Security.
Interesting column from Rick Hartman. Yes, it is a two-way street between the general public and the police. But it is not equal in how the street is engineered. The job of the police is to maintain order and protect the public while adhering to society’s laws they are sworn to protect.
This letter is in response to the article The Daily Courier ran on Aug. 29 regarding the AmeriCorps food drive for local homeless veterans. The article called for the local residents to donate food to the Arizona Serve offices where the AmeriCorps program is housed at Prescott College.
There have been several letters to the Courier and other local news sites from Black Lives Matters supporters and protesters complaining about Prescott residents harassing them and being belligerent during the BLM protest in the Courthouse Plaza. This only demonstrates how ignorant and arrogant BLM protesters are.
As our Political factions continue their polarizing vitriol, I can’t help but think, “What about the children?“
I wonder if there is anything President Donald Trump could do that syndicated columnist Michael Reagan wouldn’t endorse.
The problem of race relations has been ongoing for 150 years or more, and it’s still prevalent today. This country needs an American who understands the problem and knows how to solve it.
The Daily Courier covered a Black Lives Matter demonstration at our town plaza. I hope I’m wrong, but the Courier’s coverage of this event sure seemed biased against our citizens.
Having lived in Prescott for just a year, I’m still learning what makes this town tick. But one perception I do have is that city and county public officials are more interested in economic development than the quality of life of their constituents.
Perhaps the letter writers extolling the virtues of BLM are unaware that Prescott College recently hired Adjunct Professor and Co-Founder of BLM who publicly admitted in a Washington Post interview, also covered by the Wall Street Journal and New York Times, that they “are ALL Marxist trained.”
I’m writing in regard to the recent headline story, ‘Stop the Bleed’ kits make their way into Prescott classrooms.
The events at the courthouse plaza on Saturday, Sept. 5, were disconcerting.
Courier Columnist Tom Cantlon has done it again. Stop with the conservatism bashing and just state your position. Liberals are Democrats and conservatives are Republican, so let’s be clear.
First, let me say how proud I am to live in Prescott, a community that will not allow the violence and destruction going on in many other areas; how proud I am that our citizens will stand in front of businesses to prevent damage ...
