“I” words are inundating Washington. President Trump insists his border wall would impede an invasion of illegal immigrants who injure innocents. Democrats say Trump indulges an idiotic idea to instigate an impasse and incite impassioned illusions.
Our annual winter concert was a festive and enjoyable time. The kids worked hard to put on a great show. A special thank you to the teachers and paraprofessionals who helped them along the way, as well as the many family members and friends who supported them.

What an outrage. A Democratic woman talking like a Republican man.
Behind the scenes, there are ongoing discussions by Yavapai College officials concerning the fate of Building “L” on the Verde Campus. Poor Building “L”, which I refer to as the Rodney Dangerfield of College facilities. It gets no respect.
This is what I know for sure: love is not words; love is action. When I stand before you and tell you I love our students, our school, and this community, you may believe it’s true. But when you see the action being taken as a result of that love… my hope is that you will know it’s true.
The American Civil Liberties Union of Arizona challenge against Mingus Union over student color-coded badges sheds light on something far more problematic than an entitlement vs. privilege debate.
Though books about history -- by writers such as David McCullough, Ron Chernow, Doris Kearns Goodwin and others -- sell briskly, the future of the past in American life is facing some stern mathematics.
There are some good lessons – and some not so good – about kids and the way they establish and follow through on the goals they set for themselves.
Arizona music legend passes
If I could, I would build an Arizona musical Mount Rushmore.
Historical perspective is useful, especially when it informs the future. Yavapai College is celebrating its 50th year in 2018, and this golden anniversary milestone provides a useful retrospective.
In August of 2016, I wrote a tribute to my best friend, Ricky. He changed my life in such a profound way, it helped me to cope with his loss by putting my feelings for him in writing.
As is so typical of the Trump-hating Liberal Left, the title “Tide of truth on climate change keeps rising” for the piece by the Roberts duo was classic bait & switch. This op ed wasn’t so much about climate change, which is a fallacy. It was an attack on our president, and the claims in those attacks were equally fallacious.
So what are the Twelve Days of Christmas really about? Is it only a song, or is it more? Perhaps, it’s as retailers and the corporate world would like us to believe, it’s simply the 12 days of shopping before Christmas?
Electric vehicles are the gift that keeps giving. Electric vehicles help cut consumer energy bills and boost the economy while protecting air quality and public health.
The Mountain Bike Club is on a roll on Fridays and recently they had their first trip to the mesa.
The last push for consolidation of school districts in the upper Verde Valley differed from previous efforts we’ve seen: it didn’t include the Clarkdale-Jerome School District.

Michael Flynn has been waiting for more than a year to be sentenced. The retired three-star Army general, who spent 24 days as the Trump White House national security adviser, pleaded guilty on Dec. 1, 2017, to lying to the FBI in the Trump-Russia investigation. He agreed to cooperate with special counsel Robert Mueller.
The president’s “disdain for facts” in the climate change debate is hardly a new or isolated example. Trump’s persistent denial of reality, and his assault on critics who call him to account, form the essence of his approach to public policy.
It wasn’t the Ragged Dick up-from-poverty American life of a Horatio Alger bootblack; George H.W. Bush was born to privilege and profited from primogeniture.
There is a law on the books that could strengthen border security. Why wouldn’t the president try it?

Hanukkah this year starts Dec. 2 and is not excluded from holiday commercialization as advertisers try to take advantage of cultural references to make their ads seem more Jewish, while also trying to keep up with the pomp and circumstance of Christmas.
“This is a very, very important case,” prominent Republican lawyer Ted Olson told CNN. “This could happen to any journalist, by any politician. The White House cannot get away with this.”
