Re: Mavis L. Brauer on Feb. 1: As a (ret) USAF Major, you should know that the United States of America is not a Democracy. We are a Constitutional Republic.
“The Dells.” At the risk of being the voice of reason I would merely like to point out that reasonable concessions have been made on both sides of this issue.
Re: Our line in the sand (Save the Dells). I just have to ask, who is the “Our” to whom Ms. Fields refers?
The article in the Dec. 28, 2019, Courier concerning above normal precipitation in 2019 quoted Dr. Nancy Selover, state climatologist, as saying:
Yes, there can be “over-regulation,” just look at the miserable state of California.
What kind of country are we anyway? We give huge tax cuts to the wealthy who, instead of using them to create jobs or, let alone, train people to do the jobs, they hire already trained people from other countries. And Wall Street is thriving — unlike so many lower-wage U.S. citizens.
I was impressed this past Sunday with a phrase my pastor used in his homily; “Our journey here is much too short.”
I couldn’t believe the misinformation and half-truths about gun deaths on New Year’s Day from Harry Haff.
Democrats have now impeached the President. Is this a unique behavior on their part or does it follow a prescribed course of action?
Editor: There has been a lot of complaining by some Republicans and threats of “if you impeach our tribal leader we will impeach when a Democrat is president.”
Editor: In the recent past Starbucks locations have refused service to our wonderful law enforcement across the U.S.
Humans are a tribal species. And although blind tribal loyalty may have assured food and safety to our ancestors on the African savannah, it’s a huge liability in today’s crowded world.
Editor: We must applaud the efforts of the City of Prescott and Save the Dells in their efforts to save the magnificent 500 acres within AED’s proposed annexations.
People, what are we arguing about? AED wants 1,082 acre feet of water.
When our nation was founded, only landowning white men could vote.
In the Courier’s Thanksgiving edition, columnist John Stossel re-told the story of the Pilgrims’ failed attempt at growing corn communally.
This is a note of deep thank you to Lydia S. who found my purse at Sprouts Prescott parking lot.

This fall I enjoyed Tom Purcell’s column about the movie, “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood.”
I find it rather duplicitous if not outright hypocritical how so many of us who live in the Southwest celebrate the Latino culture, i.e. the food, customs, art, architecture, history... De Colores
If Mr. Trump is as “honest” as he repeatedly claims, why can’t we see his tax returns? If Mr. Trump has “nothing to hide” and “done nothing wrong” why is he obstructing Congress by ordering his minions not to testify? By the way, if you or I defied a subpoena, we would be in jail for contempt.
Does it seem to anyone else that there is a definite “Cult” surrounding Donald Trump?
Editor: The other day, a reporter asked Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi whether she hates President Trump.
I want to draw attention to a remarkable document on climate change and national security.
For all who knew Gary Edelbrock, you know what a wonderful man he was!
Editor: We’ve seen and heard the impeachment hearings; next, probably, comes a trial in the Senate.
George Hedge, in his letter of Nov. 27 must think that Courier readers are blind.
Regarding Mr. Roger Fairfield’s letter Conservatives and Trump flaws. He pretty well puts supporters of the duly elected president as uneducated and non-thinking. I have one question.
Editor: Prescott City Council is irresponsibly dooming our aquifer with water policies that cater to developers and pay no attention to citizen priorities.
The irony of even saying “religion and Trump” in the same breath seems to be lost on many Americans.
I would like to respond to the writer who called those of us who disapprove of the current administration “Trump haters.”
Many of us Republicans who cannot support Trump may feel a sense of unwarranted guilt.
Kayla Mueller was a precious soul who spent her entire life in the service of others. All Americans grieved at her tragic death. But from news accounts her parents had to politicize her death by blaming President Obama for not rescuing her in time.
Editor: Although Congress rarely accomplishes anything because of partisanship, a House committee has now done something significant by delineating two distinct classes of government officials, heroes and cowards. This has nothing to do with being Republicans or Democrats, but has everything to do with being courageous and ethical.
I’ve been forgetting to submit this, but a huge wonderful thank you the person who found my wallet in the Sportsman’s parking lot and took it into the store where people there/manager put it into the safe.
Editor: The 4th Annual SAL American Legion Post 6 Golf Tournament at Prescott Country Club was a huge success.
Editor: For a century the U.S. has treated the Kurds as means rather than ends.
Editor: It’s not surprising that a Courier letter exposing Trumps many flaws would stir up trouble with “the base.”
So here we are again, being subjected to another John Micek hate fest against our current president.
I recently had the privilege to participate in the six-week Prescott Citizen Police Academy.
In recent years, the citizens of Prescott and surrounding communities have spoken up through the media, community meetings, marches and their votes to express the value they place on open spaces and natural habitats.

Editor: Recently I gave thought to the current leadership and past leadership of the City of Prescott.

Capital Punishment (also known as the Death Penalty) is not a “crime deterrent.”
Regarding the article that appeared in the Daily Courier on September 21, titled Lawmakers.
Editor: Donald Trump is a clear and present danger to the USA.
Editor: In his recent Talk of the Town, Mayor Greg Mengarelli attempted to reassure Prescott citizens that our water supply was secure.

Editor: I have to take issue with the editorial by John Micek on O’Rourke’s call for a ban on AR- and AK-style rifles.
Editor: I read two articles in the Courier regarding growth and requested zoning changes in Prescott Valley. The article regarding “The Crossing” mentions zoning changes to allow 197 “bungalows” to be built near the 169/69 intersection.
Editor: I had high hopes for Mr. Trump during his campaign. I watched as political appointees became Agency Directors and Cabinet Post Heads; then left almost as quickly as they had been appointed.
I have read the Courier for many years, including “The readers always write…”. It is with great disappointment that I watch this newspaper joining the ranks of the national news media in advancing divisiveness in our nation, and now in our community.
Editor: It is quite ironic that Trump refers to anyone in government who is against him as the Deep State. Recently he has inferred that the whistleblower and anyone in the administration who spoke to him/her is a traitor and/or spy. Trump even made a reference about how we used to deal with spies and traitors in the past.
Dr. Beverly of the local water advisory group has written on Prescott water usage.
Editor: Now that the Arizona Supreme court has given the green light for businesses to deny services based on their religious convictions, will the court approve of similar situations?

I want to thank the editor for publishing letters that express the truth that most of us who disapprove of Trump do not hate him.
Editor: I did not receive the recent survey about the need for a YMCA in Prescott Valley, so I am voicing my support here along with what I believe are the top reasons.
Editor:Went to the Town Hall meeting Sept. 10 at the Adult Center to learn about the proposed water policy.
The Courier has recently printed letters on the issue of children being separated from their parents.
Climate change is real and has been since the beginning of time. Climate hysteria is also real as evidence by the letter from Patrick Grady.
Editor: So, we have Mayor Greg Mengarelli telling us “All is well with Yavapai County’s and Prescott’s water.”
Editor: I guess I was naive when I first read in the Courier that Prescott City Council was exploring ways to get water to areas outside the city limits.
Editor:The mayor and council tell us that the city is growing at a controlled rate of 2% per year.
In response to “Stock Market Woes,” you are correct that President Trump is largely responsible for the stock market as it stands today.
Editor: Jim Kilbourne (letter, Aug. 22) tells us that he does not “understand the hatred those on the far left have for our president.” For starters, Mr. Kilbourne, there are a great many of us who believe that your president is a man who disparages and dehumanizes his opponents and anyone who disagrees with him.
Editor: Recent market volatility has caused much angst among some of us. Down days of 500 and then up days of 250 are making some of us silly. Yet, this is simply the market doing its thing.
Editor: The guest editorial by Joe Guzzardi discusses Trump administration reinstatement of rules about immigrants not becoming “public charges”, and the resulting “... critics high pitched objections...”
Editor: Whatever became of phone etiquette? It used to be when someone called, especially a business, they identified themselves. “This is Esmeralda from ABC Screen Door Company. Is this Mary?” But today the caller just says, “Is this Mary?”
I think United Express Airlines would experience even more passengers if it offered service from Prescott to John Wayne in Orange County, California.
It is so disappointing that our city, county, country is so polarized that no one can state an opinion without being demonized.
Michael Reagan’s recent column was outrageous and demeaning.
A recent article mentioned a Catholic nun driving a bus and being against the federal tax cuts. She believes taxes should be raised so the federal government could give better care for individuals in need.
