Kudos and thank you to Hobby Lobby for the full page ad on July 1st.
In her letter to the editor, Michelle Star from Jerome claims that the U.S. discriminated by allegedly allowing only white immigrants from Nazi Germany to enter the U.S.
It is ironic that CNN, who bad mouths Fox News, is starting to use the Fox News playbook.
I just want to express our thoughts on the AED plan for the Granite Dells area.
June 11 the Courier ran a story entitled, “Unique landscape in Granite Dells to be preserved.”
MatForce recently announced plans to mark its anniversary with a meeting to discuss the organization’s accomplishments over the past 12 years.
To my Republican neighbors: The next four years will be a period of change in our country, state and town.
I am outraged. Why? Apparently, we have a Russian puppet in the White House.
Finally, the Prescott City Council is listening to the voters in rejecting the “climate change agreement.”
As the Trump presidency continues, and more people realize a mistake was made, it will be the Republican politicians who will save the USA from its spiral under Trump.
The United Airlines incident did effect our decision in the choice of airlines or our next flight in late August.
The front page of The Daily Courier on April 13, entitled, “Beautiful at Any Size,” elicited a double-take to assure myself that my eyes were (pardon the pun) “on target.”
I received a scam call from Atlantic City, New Jersey, for a grandparent.
As a tax paying resident and property owner in Chino Valley, I and my neighbors have serious life quality and health concerns related directly to the proposed motor sports park approximately one mile from our homes.
The Chino Valley Police Department and Chino Valley Police Officer’s Association would like to thank everyone for their generous donations to the Farmer and Hyslip families. The spaghetti dinner, raffle and silent auction at the Windmill House was a huge success.
The community will want to know that the Friends of the Chino Valley Library received a very generous donation from one of our local businesses. When asked to give us an estimate on some book shelves we wanted to order from him, Rocky Haralson from “We Organize-U” at 2675 N. Highway 89, said he would like to give back to the community by donating some lovely wooden book shelves for our new addition on the library.
Isn’t it funny that Chino Valley government and many of its residents sneer at the idea of a big box store or retail chain coming to CV because they “like that quiet, rural lifestyle,” but have no problem with something coming that will increase not only air but noise pollution in our area?
Since moving here five months ago I have noticed the importance area history has in the community. I would like to add one more item to this wonderful history equation: Base Ball.
A few days ago I was driving near the Prescott Valley Civic Center. I went by the Healing Field to see the flags. Several individuals (employees or volunteers) were taking down the flags. I was shocked to see that the flags taken down were laying on the ground in a pile.
I recently had the pleasure (?) of having to undergo a quadruple bypass heart surgery at Yavapai Regional Medical Center in Prescott. We, as a community, are very fortunate to live in an area with some of the top cardiac surgeons in the country on their staff available to us and our loved ones. I owe my life to God and those doctors and their respective teams for their expertise and professionalism.
On behalf of Healing Field founder, Mary Mallory, and the Healing Field Team, I want to thank our community for their support of Patriot Week and their help in setting up the Field and taking it down.
A 5-4 binding majority opinion of the justices of the United States Supreme Court was issued in 2008 (District of Columbia, et al v. Heller). The Court decreed in favor of a codified right to bear arms for all Americans, not just members of a well-regulated militia (see page 7 of the opinion).
“We the People” should be paying more attention to our elected officials. If we did, we might make more effort to select others and help them financially run for office. Prescott Valley has an almost “lock” on anything the movers and shakers want.
Let me say that I really enjoy living here in Chino Valley as I intended to retire to a quiet life. Granted things are changing and progress is on the rise.
Some recent letters have cast Christians as blind and brain-dead, especially in regard to climate change and denying scientific knowledge. Nigel Reynolds also made the claim that the Bible promoted the notion that the earth was flat and the center of the universe, which is just not true. Christians at the time may have done so, but you can’t judge Christianity and Jesus Christ by uninformed or misinformed Christians.
This week [Aug. 31] to my great dismay, over a third of the Opinion page was dedicated to nastiness. The caricature had no humor nor satire to make it a cartoon. It merely propagated an unsubstantiated allegation. Maybe we should depict the Powell foundation when Colin Powell was Secretary of State?
I want to thank Pam Robbins, Kim Eldredge and all who contributed in purchasing books for Chino Valley Public Library in the memory of Shirley Cole. Thank you to Peregrine Bookstore in Prescott for helping in this effort. The families are very excited about the new books and have a lot of them already checked out.
Some people are wondering why I’m making such a big deal about the chief trying to influence elections. Here are some of the reasons:
Thank you for your editorial in this week’s Review (Let Them Debate, Aug. 24). Props to the League of Women Voters, who always deserve special mention.
As a resident of Prescott Valley, and one who attended the grand opening in 1966, I wish to register my whole-hearted support of Chief Jarrell regarding his remarks as published in the Tribune.
Recently we have been in the midst of another election cycle where we hear all kinds of opinions about the state of our community whether based on fact or fiction. It’s quite refreshing when someone speaks from the heart about something he intimately knows and feels passionate about.
Recently Mary Dahl of Prescott Valley posted a letter “We need buses.” I suggest the need for buses for the poor and under employed be best served by Arizona promoting higher paying, sustainable industry moving to our area. Thereby, car pools and private ownership would soon follow. Even in high taxed Europe, when the economy improves people want private transportation; not public buses or trains.
This is a letter to other American Republicans. As a country we have endured Democratic policies and what they have done to the people of this country over the past eight years? I personally cannot afford another four years of lying, cheating, ignoring the will of the people and the Constitution of the United States. I supported the Bush presidential years even though (he was not my first choice) I feel mistakes were made.
On the Yavapai College Campus not long ago I facilitated an adult educational class on how local government works. One of the many volunteer speakers was Pam Pearsall, our county tax assessor.
I am writing to congratulate the Yavapai County Assessor, Pam Pearsall, and her entire staff on their ability to earn the Certificate of Excellence in Assessment Administration (CEAA) from the International Association of Assessing Officers (IAAO). They will be receiving this prestigious award on August 28, 2016 in Tampa, Florida at the IAAO’s annual meeting.
I found City Manager Larry Tarkowski and Universal Homes President Joe Contadino’s remarks about the antelope herd leaving Prescott Valley disconcerting.
It is plain to see why Arizona schools rank so low by just reading the title line and picture caption of your article, “Study: Arizona schools ranks in bottom four,” (August 3, page 7). We all know that children learn and make life choices from the examples presented to them.
I want to thank Pam Robbins, Kim Eldredge, and all who contributed in purchasing book for the Chino Valley Public Library in the memory of Shirley Cole.
The organizations that formed GPREP to work together to sell the region to businesses are to be congratulated. There is no question that the area needs more and better jobs. But Ruth Mayday, director of Development Service for the Town of Chino Valley, must be new to the region. She doesn’t seem to be aware of the lack of public transportation.
This letter is in response to the July 26 article on the Granville development expansion on Glassford Hill Road. I suppose this is progress and it is inevitable, but I find it sad that the pronghorns are once again displaced.
On Wednesday morning, Aug. 3, as I was driving home I saw four dogs running down the side of the road and stopped to help them.
I vote and you should too. Yes, this is a cliché “voting is a way to speak your mind and let your voice be heard, your vote is your voice.” Our votes really do count and one vote really does make a difference. If you don’t vote for the representation you trust and believe in, others will and we may not be happy with the outcome.
We want to extend our appreciation to Shawn and Christy, owners of Quailwood Greens and to the residents around the golf course, who generously donated their reusable golf balls to us. Eighteen players and their parents enjoyed playing their league games and the food service in the cafe.
Our summer reading program was a success. It went very smooth and very well attended and we met some new families and established new friendships.
On June 14, 2016, a plaque rededication ceremony was held at the Yavapai County Courthouse Plaza at the All Veterans Memorial Statue. The All Veterans Memorial Plaque Committee would like to take this opportunity to extend a tremendous and heartfelt thank you to the organizations, businesses and citizens who contributed a monetary donation toward the realization of this project to update and recast the All Veterans Memorial Plaque to include 187 Yavapai County servicemen who died while serving their Country:
When a columnist writes a piece entitled, “How to select a candidate who tells the truth,” one would think that columnist would keep their own politics from the column! Not so with Toni Denis. I’ve never read any of her articles but can tell you what side of the political fence she sits on. To wit:
I like editorial cartoons. The one published on July 20 left some things out, and has others in need of some correction. Sack (I think that’s the name) is a good artist, but he might be tackling too many subjects in one panel.
President Obama has tried to blame the Orlando, Florida, tragedy on the Second Amendment in order to demand more gun control. It does not work with me.
Just commenting on Ken Sain’s editorial of June 22, wondering “Where is the love?” Quoting so-called Christian politicians, or pastors of churches, just inflames persons who have negative opinions of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
In Annie Wales’ column “Thank-you planned for firefighters” she over looks what those of us in Cordes Lakes should really be thankful for. While yes we should be thankful to all the firefighters that responded, what we should be really thankful for is luck.
The article: “Selling Arizona” hit home with me, home being Chino Valley. We came here from California two years ago.
I recently read an article in the Prescott Valley Tribune about the littering problem on Glassford Hill Road. Someone from the town council stated that the problem has grown due to the increased traffic.
I take exception to Mr. Dursts' attempted humorous anti-gun column. While attempting to paraphrase gun rights advocates, all Mr. Durst did was to repeat the usual gun control advocates talking points.
We have lived in Prescott Valley since 1979 and this year’s firework show was awesome. We have never seen such beautiful, big fireworks.
I read recent comments by a Town Council election candidate, Alex Harris, in the Chino Valley Review that CV voters are mostly concerned with economic development and the tax base. They should be concerned as they are paying 1.1 percent more sales tax to buy locally in Chino Valley than in Prescott and 2 percent more than in Prescott Valley
The town destroyed our street with this “best-practice protective measure” five years ago. Come around during the hot and dry season to see how awful it is.
TransitPlus 2016 report discussed formation of a transit district for the Town of Prescott Valley. Report showed a broad demographic benefit if implemented. Matching federal funding is currently available for this type of need. Transit programs similar to this operate in like size areas.
Recently, I had the pleasure of attending the first Citizens’ Police Academy, sponsored by the Chino Valley Police Department. This program ran for six consecutive Wednesdays, from May 4 to June 6 during the evenings.
I have been a resident of Chino Valley for the last 11 years. I realize we live in an area that gets a lot of wind but I must say, people, have you taken a look at the American flags that fly in our town?
It’s getting really tiresome; the faux angst over the finger-pointing that follows atrocities. In this case, it’s conservative columnist Christine Flower’s screed (Daily Courier, June 14) in response to a religious homophobic gun-owner who slaughtered an Orlando nightclub’s customers.
I read the Courier and the Prescott Valley Tribune, and I’m concerned about our landfills. It is my habit to recycle plastics, alluminum, and styrofoam. I appreciate that our Walmart in PV offers two bins at the entrances for soda cans and plastic bottles. I make weekly donations there.
Yavapai Food Bank thanks the Porsche Club for their contributions to Yavapai Food Bank through their car show held in Prescott on the courthouse square on May 21, 2016.
Thank you occupants of three individual cars who tried to alert us regarding a dangerous trailer flat tire!
I had to laugh out loud at the June 13 Michael Reagan column (Daily Courier), where he decried Bernie Sanders’ youthful followers as all returning to their video games in dorms or their parents’ basements ... right alongside, no doubt, Michael Reagan, who has never yet penned a column or a book where he didn’t tell anyone who would listen “Hey, I’m Ronald Reagan’s son!!”, and now he felt compelled to tell us how tough he had it growing up because his mother was also famed actress Jane Wyman.
Another fabulous editorial (We’ll do our job, you do yours, June 8). As someone who has the utmost of respect for the “Fourth Estate.”
The Chino Valley Town Council still does not approve the minutes of their previous meeting.
I am responding to a letter by Donald Huard in the PV Tribune, June 1, 2016. As a regular writer on policies in support of liberal government actions and policies; this was his latest rant against conservatism.
This letter is an update on the story of Johnathon Weatherhead. It was originally published under the header: Panhandler, Nov. 29, 2015.
If you ever had a job serving the public then you know how rare it is that a customer will acknowledge their appreciation to you and let your manager know how you have gone beyond the job description to genuinely help a customer.
Conservative writers and right wing talk show hosts usually claim a more than $19 trillion national debt. Yet, Time magazine (April 25, 2016) reported that the public debt is $13.9 trillion. The more than $5 trillion dispartiy between it and the higher figure is owed to our own government beneficiaries. That payment is called intragovernmental debt.
In his May 16 Talk of the Town, C.S. Shoemaker warns us of the evil in voting for socialists, in part, because there are supposedly not examples of successful socialist countries, where he tells us: “Government seizes the means of production, the factories and land. Private enterprise is abolished and everyone works for the state, and the state runs the economy.”
The Chino Valley Food Bank would like to thank the Lions for the trailer full of food they donated to us. It was a huge blessing to us and especially to all those we strive to serve those who are in need.
Fees for business (Town looks to recoup some of its marijuana costs, April 27). Once again, our town government is off the rails.
Does anyone know who is responsible to clean up all the trash in the open field bordered by-Glassford Hill Road/Long Look and Lake Shore?
Re: Prescott Valley skateboarder hit twice, trapped under vehicle. So glad that both victims are still alive, but this can be used as a reminder that you can try to be a little bit safer when you are skating or driving at night.
