Letter: Come together

In his Senate speech after learning he had terminal cancer, John McCain urged our country to unite. This may be his legacy. Beyond polarized politics, we must find ways to work together.

Letter: Just the facts

Alexandra Piacenza’s column: Civilization 101, Learn to Behave Aug 12. Sounded like a positive, “bring people together” piece until alas, at the end of her column, the only example she gives to this lesson in civility is the “raising middle fingers to reporters and TV cameras at a political rally.”

Letter: Chino Valley grocery stores

Mr. Paul Knudsen asked the question “Is it true that a vote was made years ago that restricted the number of grocery stores in Chino Valley to one store?”

Letter: Dear President Trump

Mr. President, you were not my first choice for a Republican candidate — you weren’t my 10th choice. But you got my vote. I now count myself in the growing group that regrets that decision. However, my vote for you gives me the right to submit this letter to you.

Letter: A real investigation

After reading Gosar’s column accusing Rosenstein of obstruction, in the investigation of the Trump- and Russia-gate election proceedings, I am amazed.

Letter: Right to vote

With the Primary Election approaching next Tuesday, Aug. 28, I am writing to encourage every registered Arizona voter to exercise their right to vote for the candidate of their choice.

Letter: Fake news

With all the talk lately about fake news, I thought I’d offer this definition of fake news, what it is and what it isn’t.

Letter: Too loud

What has happened to the nice little restaurants where you could have dinner with friends and actually have a conversation with them?

Letter: Surplus military supplies

Every year, twenty young adults gather in Washington D.C. to train with Friends Committee on National Legislation as Advocacy Corps Organizers.

Letter: Troubled by rhetoric

I found it unusual for two reasons, the ongoing acute captivation to the Presidents every spoken word (or tweet) and that one would solicit an acquaintance’s political opinion to in turn, “leak” their response the press via an opinion to a local paper.

Letter: Large animal evacuation and shelter

It’s important to sign up for Code Red to get announcements of wildfires and emergencies.

Letter: Health care numbers

I just read an article online from a conservative financial site: Investor’s Business Daily. 8-15-2018.

Letters: Taxes

Primarily to generate the funds necessary to pay for higher teacher salaries, “#RedForEd” wants personal income taxes in Arizona to go up — way up.

Letters: Improper attire

With the start-up of the new school year, I find it quite unsettling to see teachers and other adult personnel depicted in the Daily Courier wearing attire that negates their position.

Letter: Congressional oversight

Given the course of events surrounding our Executive Branch over the past 18 months, as punctuated by an embarrassing performance in Helsinki, it is past the time to ask our representatives in Washington what they (Mr. Gosar) are doing to stop or check this madness.

Letter: Discrimination

Even a liberal/progressive will usually agree that a person has a fundamental right to be let (left) alone.

Letter: Uniforms

Congratulations to Cathleen Cherry on winning a Fulbright Scholarship.

Letter: Outstanding work

Many kudos to Brian Bergner Jr. for his informative and much needed positive comments regarding LeBron James’s most generous educational gift to the school children in Akron, Ohio.

Letter: Integrity, fairness needed?

So Dick Polman is upset about the “Death of Truth” in relation to President Trump.

Letter: Reality check

Having participated in multiple Save the Dells and CWAG events I fail to see any benefit for either Prescott or Prescott Valley to approve the Arizona Eco annexation proposal.

Letter: Some details

This is in response to Gary Sanderson’s letter, in which he expressed disappointment that no “irredeemable,” “deplorable,” “smelly” Trump supporter refuted his anti-Trump rant.

Letter: Immunity

There is not much doubt that legislative members have taken advantage of the so-called “legislative immunity” provision of the Arizona Constitution.

Letters: Clear, present danger

For the moment let’s not debate whether or not Russia interfered in our 2016 presidential election and is poised to do the same or worse in November’s coming midterm elections.

Letters: Unguarded heritage

Prescott was created by a succession of generations over a time span of more than a hundred years.
