Recent radio and television ads regarding surprise medical bills is an important matter that deserves our attention. These ads tell us that after emergency visits, surprise medical bills are turning up ...
A reader wrote in preaching love, “Something that truly amazes me is the time people waste in our community holding signs supporting our president or hating him.” This misses the point entirely.
In regard to Jerry Fowler and his “Column off the mark” letter. He states that white males were responsible for most scientific progress. It’s astounding how well his memory works when he has a point to make.
Editor: A large group from my neighborhood attended a Planning and Zoning Commission meeting months ago to voice our strong disagreement to a new proposed development here. We spoke of how increased traffic would affect Bradshaw Drive, already a dangerous steep and winding road. We spoke of the character of our neighborhood, the homes and natural ambience.
Editor: We moved here in large part because of the outdoor recreational opportunities in Prescott. The Granite Dells and its two lakes are the city’s centerpieces of outdoor activities and are, to a large degree, Prescott’s trademark.
Editor, Jerry Fowler’s Aug. 14 idea that there is income inequality because white men have more intellect and ambition than women or people of color is sexist, racist and simply not true.
Editor: How many deaths? How much grieving can this country bear? Will Congress remain tone deaf to the will of the American people?
Editor: The Courier’s photo and story on Aug. 12 of the courthouse vigil for those affected by shootings in Dayton and El Paso was much appreciated.
Editor: This is regarding Stanley C. Brown’s letter on Aug. 15 titled “Separation From Parents.” Mr. Brown says being separated from his parents for an hour at a fair in 1932 left a “life long dark spot on my psyche.” So he thinks President Trump should be charged with child abuse for separating children from their parents at the border.
As I sit here watching the Dow plunge 875 points (at the time of this writing), I hope people realize this is all Trump’s fault.
Both the El Paso and Dayton mass murderers got their guns legally after passing a background check.
Thank you to the kind person who turned in my small purse to the lost and found at Costco on the afternoon of Friday the 8th.
In response to Larry Wonderling’s questions he posed on Aug. 6 in a letter to the editor, “Remarkably Accurate,” why do we still need the Electoral College?
Recently, my wife and I attended a lecture by Scott Kelly, an astronaut who lived 340 days aboard the Space Station. To assess potential aging effects of space travel, his telomeres were measured pre/post mission.
I want to respond to the great letter to the editor written by Stanley Brown and published in the Courier on Aug. 15.
My response to the latest letter from “retired clinical psychologist, Ph.D. Larry Wonderling” published on Tuesday, Aug. 6, is as follows: Thank God he is not running this country.
I’m asking local government officials to have foresight to address the future of the Prescott area now facing climate impacts including drought/water shortages, wildfires/forest health, increased temperatures, flooding, clean air and clean water issues.
Editor: While I don’t condone it, I can understand it under certain conditions. I grew up at the tail end of WWII and saw a lot of hatred. Many of those in Europe lost not only husbands, wives, children and loved ones, many of them lost their homes, their businesses, property and everything they owned due to the rise of the Nazi Party.
Editor: I appreciate and applaud your coverage of the local school programs that engage the children and promote positive social interaction.
Editor: I always enjoy Senior News Editor Tim Wiederaenders’ Friday Catchall columns, but last Friday (Aug. 16) he dropped in a little nugget that needs comment.
Editor: I wonder how many people have read about oceans and distant lands that are weighted down with plastics and other types of human trash.
Hal Cohen’s Aug. 1 letter on Ronald Reagan’s position on immigration is confusing because he (purposely?) omitted the terms illegal and legal. Reagan was a proponent of LEGAL immigration and an opponent of ILLEGAL immigration. At the time, he was joined in his hatred of illegal immigration by one of his contemporaries, Caesar Chavez.
Editor: Robin Hood to the Rescue? The US Dept. of Agriculture proposed closing a loophole that has allowed states to make participants receiving TANF, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, automatically eligible to participate in SNAP, the food stamp program. Source: Wash press release Jul. 23, 2019.
Does anyone else find it creepy that, in this age of mass murders by gunfire, Prescott finds it fitting to celebrate its cowboy heritage with fake shootouts on Whiskey Row?
