home : opinions : letters April 24, 2015


Letter: The Clintons
The lady-in-waiting, Hillary Clinton, has finally announced her intent to run for President in 2016. It was not a shocking event, as voters over the years have recognized the reality of a woman holding that office.
Friday, April 24, 2015

Letter: Opinions?
It's amazing how some individuals with a "know-it-all" attitude set themselves up as judge and jury to tell the rest of us what and how we should think based merely upon their vision of how things should be. The ramblings of Toni Denis' column on April 15 do exactly that!
Friday, April 24, 2015

Letter: Water solutions
The Daily Courier keeps us well informed of our ongoing water issues, so one cannot help but be interested in the drought in California resulting in penalties on those who fail to reduce their usage as required.
Friday, April 24, 2015

Letter: Important election
American voters are facing one of the most important decisions of their lives. They must decide whether to put the interests of the nation ahead of their personal ideology by electing a person, regardless of party, whom they consider best suited to lead the nation in this time of national crisis.

Letter: Dirty trails
I've been hiking this beautiful, iconic landmark trail for many years. In March of 2014 it had become so riddled with dog piles I decided I had to do something about it. Even though there are numerous signs posted by the National Forest that you are required to pick up after your dog and keep it on a leash some dog owners refuse to do so. Really people, waste bags are even provided. This public trail is not your dog's toilet. In one year I have cleaned up 430 piles of dog waste. Dog owners who do not pick up are disrespectful and are abusing their privilege to use this trail. They spoil the trail for others. Dog owners who won't pick up after their dogs should leave their dogs at home.

Letter: Opinions
One of the great things about a newspaper such as the Daily Courier is, it provides opportunities for all views, extremist and others, to be presented.
Wednesday, April 22, 2015

Letter: Volunteering
In honor of National Volunteer Week, April 12 - 18, I would like to publicly thank all of the wonderful people who volunteer for the Prescott Unified School District.
Wednesday, April 22, 2015

Letter: Animal treatment
We've had a home in Chino Valley for four years. Great neighbors, nice area, lovely people. What disturbs us enormously is how some people in this area treat animals.
Tuesday, April 21, 2015

Letter: Open space sales tax
Engaged citizens who care about a thriving community must consider the long-term benefits of natural open space. Now is the time to support the proposed quarter-percent area sales tax for open space.
Tuesday, April 21, 2015

Letter: Local justice
What is the matter with our judges and county attorneys? I am ashamed of all of them.

Letter: Separation of church and state
I'd like to shed a little light on the misunderstood concept of Separation of Church and State and its origins.

Letter: Speed zone

Sunday, April 19, 2015

Sunday, April 19, 2015

Letter: Pensions
We must as a community and a country avoid a "race to the bottom" attitude.
Saturday, April 18, 2015

Saturday, April 18, 2015

Letter: VA care
I went to the emergency room at the Prescott VA. After many tests at the VA in Prescott and Phoenix, they sent me to a well-known nationwide hospital.
Saturday, April 18, 2015

Letter: Discussion needed
Yes, budget cuts and tax increases are looming and there seems to be a consistent cry "we are losing revenue" that is being heard throughout cities and towns. If Yavapai College has their way, property owners will notice a bump in their next tax bill - just a slight 2 percent increase because they can without voter approval.
Thursday, April 16, 2015

Letter: Education help
When will folks realize that a good economic base for a community, is a community that values education. One that pays teachers, classified personal and administrators a respectable salary.
Tuesday, April 14, 2015

Letter: Vet center thanks
Thank you for the coverage you have given to the naming of the Dr. Cameron K. McKinley Vet Center over the last months. Especially, my family and I want to thank you for the coverage of the day of the dedication, March 28, 2015.

Letter: Prayer
I am concerned about the government call to prayer on the so-called National Day of Prayer, May 7, 2015.
Sunday, April 12, 2015

Letter: Tribute
Thank you for this beautiful tribute to Father Daryl Olds.
Sunday, April 12, 2015

Letter: Tea sales
I was dismayed to read the article of April 2, entitled "Annual tea raises cash for Prescott Area Shelter Services." As an animal rescue volunteer for over 20 years, I have sought to protect animals from abuse, neglect and exploitation.
Saturday, April 11, 2015

Letter: Tax increase
Once again, Prescott voters are being asked to trust the arguments for a sales tax increase and how the additional revenue will be dedicated to street improvements, open space and natural resources.
Saturday, April 11, 2015

Letter: Editorials
What a delight to read Robin Layton's editorials.
Saturday, April 11, 2015

Letter: Civics exam
Here is a sample test question for an up-to-date Arizona civics exam.

"A form of government in which absolute power is concentrated in a dictator or small clique: autocratic rule, control, or leadership."

Friday, April 10, 2015

Letter: Jail tax
I voted "no" for a new jail tax, along with the majority of the Prescott, Yavapai County taxpayers, sending a message to the Board of Supervisors whom we elected to represent us.
Friday, April 10, 2015

Letter: Animal bill
I totally agree with Paul Finler and his shock that the Arizona Senate is actually voting on a bill to further degrade the statute and reduce the penalties for abuse to farm animals.
Friday, April 10, 2015

Letter: Holiday event thank you
Hope you were able to enjoy the "Christmas Court House Lighting" this past season.
Friday, April 10, 2015

Letter: Think twice about tattoos
Having served in the Navy on active duty at sea and ashore during WWII and Korea, the number of men wearing tattoos was relatively small, and so were the tattoos. Also, I never saw any female member of the armed forces with a tattoo during that whole period.
Thursday, April 09, 2015

Letter: Bus service provides nice touch
I want to write about my experience on a recent trip to Phoenix on Master's Touch Bus Service.

I was part of a group from Yavapai College taking a field trip to the Museum of Fine Arts in Phoenix on Thursday.

Thursday, April 09, 2015

Letter: Rumors of Elks' demise are false
I would like to inform the disgruntled person or persons that have been rumoring that Prescott Elks Lodge No. 330 is closing that is absolutely false. This Lodge has proudly served the communities of Prescott and Prescott Valley and their surrounding areas for over 119 year.

Sunday, April 05, 2015

Letter: Fear
A friend of mine said she'd recently watched "The Crucible" by Arthur Miller -- a play/movie about the Salem witch trials in the 1700s.

Letter: Desalination
Regarding desalination (Talk of the Town, March 30), desalination may be necessary due to climate change and increasing populations in the Southwest in the foreseeable future.

College and Career Ready Standards aka Common Core is still the law in Arizona.

Letter: Who do they represent?
Thank you for reporting on the legislature passing and Gov. Ducey signing HB2578, which was sponsored by representative D. Mitchell, a former homebuilder. This bill repeals a law allowing homeowners to recover attorney and expert fees when suing a homebuilder for construction defects.
