home : opinions : letters May 22, 2015


Letter: Cell phone tower
Shame on the City Council for denying the cell tower license.
Friday, May 22, 2015

Letter: Clergy Project
A recent letter by the pastor of the Alliance Bible Church demonstrated how important it is for an organization to help the less fortunate and bring them to Jesus.
Friday, May 22, 2015

Letter: Monument update
Memorial Day is fast approaching and I would like to ask that we as a community remember the servicemen from Yavapai County who have died in Operation Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom.
Friday, May 22, 2015

Letter: Service or Therapy dogs?
Service dogs provide friendship, companionship and are a great resource for those who need them. However, the number of service dogs I see in the greater Prescott area seems to overwhelm their actual need.
Wednesday, May 20, 2015

Letter: Dog liabilities
This is a comment about service dogs being the only dogs allowed in our establishments. I totally agree that to be the case.
Wednesday, May 20, 2015

Letter: Affordable housing
I could not agree more that we need affordable housing in the Prescott area.
Wednesday, May 20, 2015

Letter: 'Club no one wants to join'
I belong to the club no one wants to join. My son died by suicide in March 2014 at age 31. I have since met other mothers enduring this life change and trying to heal as I am.
Tuesday, May 19, 2015

Letter: 'Toasting' pleasure
On April 30 my husband and I attended the Meals on Wheels Toastings, Tastings, and Tunes event.
Tuesday, May 19, 2015

Letter: Runner's heart-felt thanks
Thanks to all who helped on May 2 during the Whiskey Row run when I suffered a heart attack. The immediate response in medical aid and prayer from fellow runners was instant and overwhelming.
Tuesday, May 19, 2015

Letter: Guide dogs (Berman)
While I appreciate Mr. Stephen Salkin's letter educating us about state statutes regarding Guide Dogs (May 14), I respectfully and utterly disagree with his comment that Mr. Bok's column on dog manners (owners' manners?) was "way off base and uncalled for."
Sunday, May 17, 2015

Letter: Modern teaching
I recently read a story about an incident that happened in Hempstead, Long Island, where a female teacher was assaulted, choked and knocked unconscious by a parent.
Sunday, May 17, 2015

Letter: Great service
Recently while vacationing in Arizona, we experienced a vehicle problem near Prescott Valley.
Saturday, May 16, 2015

Letter: Music heroes
Bradshaw Mountain High School music students, Yavapai College choral singers and a delighted audience all have a new hero.
Saturday, May 16, 2015

Letter: An open letter to Pam Pearsall and the Courier
I want to go on record as the owner of almost $3,000,000 in real estate property in Prescott, Arizona that I am extremely distressed about the actions of the Board of Supervisors in their attempts to undermine your decisions in how to run your office.
Saturday, May 16, 2015

Letter: Reckless driver
This is for the driver of a Silver Mazda. On Sunday, April 19, were you in such a hurry that you felt it necessary to weave in and out of the traffic lanes, even in the 45 mile an hour zone of Mayer?
Saturday, May 16, 2015

Letter: TransPacific Partnership
There is a new 'free' trade agreement being pushed by politicians in Washington.
Friday, May 15, 2015

Letter: Christian or not?
John Krizek is an acquaintance of mine, and a near neighbor, but I disagree with many of the points in his letter (May 5) that attack the ACLU and complain about religious prejudice.
Friday, May 15, 2015

Letter: Guide dogs (Salkin)
EDITOR:

Last week I read Ed Boks column on dog walking manners. While it had its points, it was way off base and uncalled for.

Thursday, May 14, 2015

Letter: County accountability
What a great column in the May 7 Courier. Pam Pearsall, writing under "Talk of the Town," explained her position on combining the separate Mapping and Title Transfer departments, into one department.
Thursday, May 14, 2015

Letter: Tax rates
According to the IRS tax rate tables, there has only been an increase of the taxable income levels for the six tax brackets.
Thursday, May 14, 2015

Letter: Reform pension system
In regard to the city proposal to pay for pensions with a sales tax: When the recession hit, they lost money and they had poor money management. They want the private sector to once again pony up tax dollars to recover the money.
Wednesday, May 13, 2015

Letter: Bees gone
Talk about bees. I had a very large swarm of bees making a home under a corner of my patio roof.
Wednesday, May 13, 2015

Letter: Miller Valley School
I have been involved with Miller Valley School since 1981. This school has been and is such a special and unique place.
Wednesday, May 13, 2015

Letter: Tax for pensions
After reading your story this morning on raising taxes for pensions, do the math. If they increase the sales tax for the next 20 years, when the tax increase expires we start all over again.
Tuesday, May 12, 2015

Letter: Dreamers
I believe the largest internal problem facing America is the loss of our sense of community. Family, city, state and country: we have lost the vision of individuals living together and working to develop strong communities.
Tuesday, May 12, 2015

Letter: Moratorium
Talk of the Town by Gary Beverly on May 8, "Can technology save us?" was an excellent article on Prescott's inevitable water shortage issue. He presented enough straight-forward information on the subject that we really don't need any more taxpayer funded studies.
Tuesday, May 12, 2015

Letter: VA wait times
Regarding Prescott VA wait times, I had to go the VA last week to get some labs done. While there, I went to the Optometry Department to make an appointment to have my eye examined. To my surprise the lady making appointments told me the next available appointment was in August.
Monday, May 11, 2015

Letter: Assessor accountability
I had to laugh at the humble sincerity of our overworked County Assessor and her Talk of the Town published in the Courier on Thursday, May 7.
Monday, May 11, 2015

Letter: Postal Service
Whoa! Whoa! Stop the train. This is the end of the line for syndicated columnist Phil Kerpen and his piece, "U.S. Postal Service is headed for disaster" (April 17). All due respect to Mr. Kerpen and his rant on the USPS financial difficulties, but not once did he mention the fact of who is really behind the fragility of the USPS!
Monday, May 11, 2015

Letter: Recovery homes
I've been reading many articles related to recovery homes in Prescott.
Sunday, May 10, 2015

Letter: Vets
The Annual Salute to Heroes in Prescott Valley this year turned into a two-day event that, thanks to the efforts of many people and businesses, raised more than $19,000 for U.S.VETS, to meet the needs of local veterans.
Sunday, May 10, 2015

Letter: Sales tax
Regarding the April 29 article regarding "Sales Tax for Public Safety," I am wondering how many new tax proposals the City Council and the County Supervisors can come up with.
Saturday, May 09, 2015

Letter: Phippen Museum
We're always amazed at the Phippen Museum when we see the number of visitors we get from out of town - and not just those coming up from the valley.
Saturday, May 09, 2015

Letter: Washington School
Historical Site: After reading about Washington School in the Courier, I think steps should be taken to classify it as a historical building.
Saturday, May 09, 2015

Letter: Tax rates
At tax time in April the normal 10 percent were grousing about their high income tax rate. So why are the wealthy getting so rich?
Thursday, May 07, 2015

Letter: Higher education
I remember several weeks ago when the Arizona legislature wrapped up this year's session and had passed a budget that Gov. Doug Ducey signed. They all seemed so proud of themselves for their rapid legislating. More recently many news articles have popped up about the draconian cuts made to our state universities. They cut $99 million.
Thursday, May 07, 2015

Letter: Fix water woes first
You have got to be kidding! April 13 Courier headline - annex 2,500 more acres into the General Plan for future housing development?
Tuesday, May 05, 2015

Letter: Influence in Congress
Until recently, we lived in Honolulu. Although we disagreed with him on many things, we in Hawaii were fortunate to be represented for decades in D.C. by Sen. Daniel Inouye who "brought home the bacon" every year.
Tuesday, May 05, 2015

Letter: Ease off religion
It's sad to note the disconnect between the First Amendment and the rabidly anti-religious elements of the ACLU and their friends.
Tuesday, May 05, 2015

Letter: Jail beds
To those who opposed the jail tax, look at all the repeat offenders on probation from lack of beds. I hope nothing bad happens to me, you or yours from these repeat offenders (impaired drivers, rapists, molesters, assaults, robbers, thefts and mental illness).
Monday, May 04, 2015

Letter: Garden Gathering
Mountain Oak School, 1455 Willow Creek Road, in Prescott had a Garden Gathering day on April 27. Over 80 people showed up as volunteer workers to help start the school's new Learning Garden/Garden Learning program in conjunction with Professor Pramod Prajuli of Prescott College.
Monday, May 04, 2015

Letter: Public pensions
Lead story, front page, Courier, April 25: consider raising taxes to pay for pensions.

When will it be or what will it take for governments - city, state and federal - to finally realize that funding public pensions is a mistake of enormous proportions?

Sunday, May 03, 2015

Letter to the editor: Police
EDITOR:

With all the negative publicity the police have been getting lately, I just had a delightful experience with ours.

Sunday, May 03, 2015

Letter to the editor: Master Plan
Sunday, May 03, 2015

Letter to the editor: Day of prayer
EDITOR:

Harry S. Truman in 1952 signed the proclamation so all Americans can pray in their churches, homes and in the public areas.

Sunday, May 03, 2015

Letter: Granite Creek cleanup
EDITOR:

The recent Granite Creek Cleanup put on by Prescott Creeks drew just under 500 volunteers who cleared over 4,760 pounds (2.38 tons) of litter and debris from our creeks, lakes and surrounding areas.

Saturday, May 02, 2015

Letter: Hospice
My wife Ginny and I moved to Prescott in 2002, as it appeared to be a place that we both looked to enjoy in our retirement years.
Saturday, May 02, 2015

Letter: More trees
Trees, trees and less trees. One of my neighbors cut down a tree on his property.
Friday, May 01, 2015

Letter: 100 days of failure
The headline in the Courier on April 21, "First 100 Days of Success," is a misstatement unless you are among the top income earners in Arizona.
Friday, May 01, 2015

Letter: Business as usual
I was more than a little disappointed when I read the April 24, article in the Courier announcing Karen Fann's intent to run for the senate.
