After waking from my long nap that Jim Barber observed I took, I awoke to find, in my amazement, that Congress did not allow Barack Obama to run for a third term! Had he done so, we would not be in this twittertornado so bad that I look forward to the commercials on TV now.
The Waste Water Treatment Plant at Riverfront Park has reached another setback. The excess waste water that is produced by the plant has no place to go.
While I’m no fan of Ann Coulter I agree with one point she made in her essay Contract with Republicans, published in the Verde Independent on Friday, August 4, 2017, namely that the United States should stop wasting money and precious lives on pointless wars.
Wow! I had no idea that Trump supporters were so touchy. We all know that Trump is thin skinned – any perceived slight will unleash a torrent of adjectives aimed at the offender, but I thought his supporters might be more restrained.
Last week, the president unilaterally declared that transgender people will no longer be allowed to serve in America’s armed forces.
I had doubts when Friends of Clark Memorial Library set up a book collection booth at July 29’s Concert in the Park.
Bob Burke (“Right-wing hypocrisy…”,CVBugle, Opinion) seems a little conflicted.
I feel the need to express my gratitude for all the assistance I have received during the last three months, starting with Cottonwood first responders who moved my vehicle to the hospital parking lot while I was transported by ambulance.
We watch, aghast, as the republican congress (sic) grovels in abject subservience to trump’s probably unconstitutional, potentially criminal, possibly treasonous, daily misdeed.
In the Verde Independent Newspaper July 28, 2017 is a what I classify as a Letter of “Conflicting Opinions” within itself; when recently past years events are taken into account.
To start with I was in support of your filling the gap left by the ‘almost unbelievable and untimely death of the late Senator Chester Crandell’.
The Republicans in Congress, for seven years, proposed/passed legislation to repeal and replace the ACA (Obamacare).
Wow!! I fired a pop-gun and got back a battleship salvo.
First of all, congratulations to Dale Williams on her retirement from Mingus Union High School. Dale started out as a bus driver for her father, John Tavasci, working 10 years there, then started working at Mingus in the Counseling Department, completing 30 years of service as an MUHS employee.
I’m replying to Bob Burke’s letter of July 28, 2017. My husband and I watched all channels on TV for many years and are both avid readers. After happening upon FOX, we soon realized that it is the only channel which has liberals on as much as conservatives. Therefore, intelligent people can make their own decisions about current events.
The American people owe a debt of gratitude to Senators Collins, Murkowski and Arizona’s own John McCain for their “no” vote on the Republican repeal and replace health care bill.
Donald Trump’s clumsy political maneuvers aside, John McCain, of all Senators, should know the president is right on the transgender issue.
It’s time to pull the plug on the testosterone governing Washington.
Just like the weeds that follow a summer monsoon storm, Jim Barber’s hypocrisy is in full bloom. After much thought, reflection, and a good dose of Fox News, Barber wrote that the current political toxicity is the fault of – you won’t believe it - Democrats.
In a time of drought, why allow even more draining of our precious aquifer! Where is the Environmental Study? Whose wells will run dry? And yes, it is happening now! Many people are facing dry wells already.
After nine years the weather decided to be nice to me and Cornfest went on with just a few big gust of wind and a little rain.
Thank you for publishing the salaries of the public “Servants” in Yavapai County. My first initial reaction was anger, but then it turned to great sadness.
Decades ago, Bob Dylan wrote a challenge -- and warning -- to today’s members of the House and Senate. Seems timely that we revisit his prescient words:
Did you know that it was only in the 2000 presidential election that the color Red for Republicans and the color Blue for Democrats actually “stuck” as identifying the two parties?
