Letter: Near Prescott?

Regarding the article about deer in Yavapai Hills, I am tired of reading about Yavapai Hills “near Prescott.”

Tease photo

Letter: Charter schools, do the math

The problem with teachers is that they don’t do the math. Don’t worry about teaching every child, think about making money. Form a company and open a charter school.

Tease photo

Letter: No on Kavanaugh

Sen. Flake, we know too little about Judge Kavanaugh’s full history to allow for an informed vote on his nomination. Believe me, if the political balance were reversed, your party would be equally clamoring for full release of all there is from his past.

Tease photo

Letter: Facts, not opinions

Regarding Jim Martin’s letter (“Integrity hard at work,” Sept. 19), the letter is a classic example of disregarding facts in favor of partisan politics.

Tease photo

Letter: Won’t be voting

When, in 1960, I turned 21 I was excited by the possibility of electing a president. Now an adult, I had a say in national politics!

Tease photo

Letter: Integrity hard at work

The last time I checked the Constitution, Congress is coequal with the President and SCOTUS!

Tease photo

Letter: Looking into the hotel project

Thanks to Howard Mechanic for looking into the hotel project. It could be a good thing for Prescott but there are many unanswered questions.

Tease photo

Letter: Illegal signs all over town?

In the last year there has been a proliferation of illegal commercial plastic corrugated signs on fences, sign posts, trees, public, and private property in the Quad City area.

Tease photo

Letter: Tearing down the old Prescott Valley Motel

It seems every time I pick up the paper there is a new and shocking development reported. This time it is the story concerning the tearing down of the beloved Prescott Valley Motel to make room for a Super Circle K.

Tease photo

Letter: More on Granite Dells

In Joe Trudeau’s recent Talk of the Town he speaks to the unique opportunity afforded our council to preserve a much-beloved, 500-acre portion of the Granite Dells while allowing Arizona Eco Development (AED) to profitably develop elsewhere on their vast acreage.

Tease photo

Letter: Unconscionable Shingrix vaccine shortage

Like many Prescott adults and seniors I have been unable to get the second of my two Shingrix shingles vaccine shots for a couple of months due to an unexplained and scandalous national shortage of this new and much more effective Shingles vaccine.

Tease photo

Letter: Save the Dells

My name is Sawyer Fields. I am 12 years old and a student at Basis Prescott, and I’m writing this letter in regards to the donation I will be making to Save the Dells.

Tease photo

Letter: Ensign Flake

As Sen. Jeff Flake assumes the position of senior senator from Arizona for a couple months, I’d like to ask him to screen the movie “Mr. Roberts.” (OK, bear with me for a moment on this.)

Tease photo

Letter: Left, Right and Center

Without intending to join a bandwagon for either party, I am amazed at the efforts that they will both go through to distance themselves from each other. Some will go so far as to claim that their opposites have virtually nothing to offer. Really?

Tease photo

Public school system under attack

America’s public school system, the bedrock of our democracy, is under a well-funded, tightly coordinated, attack.

Tease photo

Letter: Food Carts

I am not surprised to read that food carts are popping up in the downtown area. It took long enough

Tease photo

Letter: More bans needed

The Aug. 15 editorial urged the FCC to take action against robocalls. A splendid idea! But why stop there? Let ALL unwanted robocalls be banned, including those from politicians.

Tease photo

Letter: AZ PHIL Inaugural

There I sat — one of nearly 1,100 delighted concert goers witnessing Prescott composer Henry Flurry’s musical inventions. The newly founded Arizona Philharmonic brilliantly conducted by Peter Bay performed the all Flurry program.

Tease photo

Letter: Math problems

In the Sept. 4 “The Readers always write …” section the Courier editor took issue with the column titled “Math Problems?” and I believe needs to issue a correction to that comment.

Tease photo

Letter: Tax cuts and the wealthy

In his Sept. 5 column, my friend Tom Cantlon again laments our recent tax cuts. Tom quotes Sister Simone Campbell “The tax cuts went directly to the wealthiest people ...” Well, yes. Tax cuts necessarily go to those paying taxes.

Tease photo

Letter: Math ‘debate’

In the Sept. 4 issue, Mr. Bruce Gebhardt challenged the accuracy of a quote attributed to Mr. Tim Carter in an editorial printed in the Aug. 19 issue that implies that our schools lose “44 percent of its workers each year.”

Tease photo

Letter: More heroes

I am writing in response to the article entitled “Time to Remember One of Prescott’s Original Hometown Heroes.” The article was in the Courier on Saturday, Sept. 1, 2018.

Tease photo

Letter: Right economic moves

To determine “right,” the first step of the scientific method is observation. Bob Lynne obviously has missed observing our economy for the last 17 months and over the previous eight years.

Tease photo

Letter: Hiding climate change

I’m a recently-retired research scientist for the USAF Space and Missile Systems Centre in Los Angeles. I know the facts about climate change and how they are being hidden, so I am a little shocked at public opinion in the Quad Cities.

Tease photo

Letter: Destroying public lands

The proposed mine in the Kirkland area — where is EPA oversight in this? Environmental Impact Statement, regarding chemicals for extraction, cancer-causing dust, water quality of the valley for the future? Is the valley there a future superfund site?

Tease photo

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.

Tease photo

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.”

Tease photo

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.

Tease photo

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.

Tease photo

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.

Tease photo

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.

Tease photo

Letters: Unguarded heritage

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

Tease photo

Letters: Voices

One could laugh at the “Trumpian” letter of Aug. 2 but for the need to focus on its’ litany of distortions and untruths.

Tease photo

Letters: Interesting observation

I recently asked two ardent Trump supporters a simple unambiguous question.

Tease photo

Letter: Prescott’s long-term livability

Developers of big expansion projects, like Jason Gisi of Arizona Eco Development, love to tout local financial benefits of their ventures.

Tease photo

Letter: I’m glad I voted for Trump

On Aug. 4, the Courier printed a letter from Pamela Beitzel. Among other things her letter says that “in her opinion” Trump’s policies serve only the three “W’s:” the white, the wealthy, and the well connected.

Tease photo

Letter: Get involved

Happily, I was home to answer the door when Emma rang the bell. Her first question, “Are you going to vote?”

Tease photo

Letter: Heart-felt concern

I know, I get sad easily, like the pain I feel about young children being torn from their parents at the border, not to be returned for weeks and months, and some maybe forever.

Tease photo

Letter: Plan details needed

Jason Gisi, CEO of Arizona Eco Development, presented his thoughts in a recent Talk of the Town in the Courier.
