As a guy raised on a farm and who served in the U.S. Army from 1952 until 1972, I’m still shocked and appalled by the proposal of Arizona Game and Fish Department to stage hunting “contest” to kill any animal, especially coyotes, bobcats and fox.

What illegal immigrant story is Trump not telling us? Columnist John Micek, here’s what you ignore: the USA spends $110 billion to $150 billion annually on illegals: capturing, housing, feeding, clothing, medical care, educating, representing, adjudicating and deporting; that is not spent on America’s children, America’s veterans, America’s homeless, America’s poor, America’s infrastructure ... every year.

In regard to the proposed increased property tax issue in Chino Valley, the article states that some of the areas to be amended would be Appaloosa, Brightstar, Mesa View, Highland Ranch, Parkside Village, and Vista Grande Estates.
