Stories this photo appears in:
Regarding the article about deer in Yavapai Hills, I am tired of reading about Yavapai Hills “near Prescott.”
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.
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.
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.
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!
The last time I checked the Constitution, Congress is coequal with the President and SCOTUS!
Thanks to Howard Mechanic for looking into the hotel project. It could be a good thing for Prescott but there are many unanswered questions.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.)
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?
America’s public school system, the bedrock of our democracy, is under a well-funded, tightly coordinated, attack.
I am not surprised to read that food carts are popping up in the downtown area. It took long enough
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.”
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.
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.
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.
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?
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.
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.”
Primarily to generate the funds necessary to pay for higher teacher salaries, “#RedForEd” wants personal income taxes in Arizona to go up — way up.
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.
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.
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.
Prescott was created by a succession of generations over a time span of more than a hundred years.
One could laugh at the “Trumpian” letter of Aug. 2 but for the need to focus on its’ litany of distortions and untruths.
I recently asked two ardent Trump supporters a simple unambiguous question.
Developers of big expansion projects, like Jason Gisi of Arizona Eco Development, love to tout local financial benefits of their ventures.
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.
Happily, I was home to answer the door when Emma rang the bell. Her first question, “Are you going to vote?”
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.
Jason Gisi, CEO of Arizona Eco Development, presented his thoughts in a recent Talk of the Town in the Courier.
Editor: I would like to know when Manley Drive became a drag strip.
