History is replete with events where an armed citizenry was able to stand up to vastly superior firepower.
The anti-gun crowd cracks me up with their changing rhetoric. For years, they’ve been saying the Second Amendment doesn’t apply to individuals, it’s for the militia (which in the founders’ time was every able-bodied adult male.)
Thank You to the members of Christ Lutheran Church in Sedona and their Outreach Program “Hands Healing Hunger."
We can’t pass enough gun laws to get rid of evil. Responsible gun owners will remain responsible, and the bad guys will still buy guns from other bad guys.That isn’t going to change with more laws.
Recently, American Legion Cornville/Sedona Post 135 was generously given the opportunity to use the new Camp Verde Library for the District 8 and Area C, 81st American Legion Oratorical Competition.
Many thanks to all who helped make our Fifth Annual “TREK for TECH” event, held this past weekend in Lake Montezuma, a success.
“We Love America” was the theme of the Patriotic Program with the United Christian School in Camp Verde Feb. 23. And what an uplifting program it was.
This years theme if you can call it a theme was loud and proud. As always, we were loud and in our bright shirts we definitely showed our pride.
Camp Verde Town Manager is hiding the reason why the Town Marshal, Nancy Gardner, is Under Investigation. About 6 weeks ago, on Oct 13, the Camp Verde Town Manager, Russ Martin, placed the Town Marshal, Nancy Gardner, on paid administrative leave so that she could be investigated for SOMETHING by SOMEONE.
The City of Cottonwood will get a new waterline and some new asphalt on Mingus Ave, however it may not be before Hwy 260 is finished..!
The Republican triumvirate has given the Country what is being called a “big Christmas present.”
They say we as a nation are $20 trillion in debt.
Thanks to all the support of the Copper Canyon Fire Department, Chief Terry Keller and the Town of Camp Verde.

I’m sorry, but I have to respond to Bob Richards opinion you printed Wed. Nov. 8th.
Bob Richards writes that “For much of our history we have had gun control measures."
If I had been stung by a black wooly caterpillar during the Obama administration, would you have made the top headline on your front page, “It Looked Like Barack Obama’s Hair”?
Common sense, the one component that can right the listing ship of rationality in politics today, is all but absent, and many voters are losing faith in a system that has abandoned civility and logical thought.
I called my mother yesterday. First words out of her mouth were, “You can’t keep posting your political opinions on Facebook, it’ll hurt your new business.”
As a parent who lost my 15-year-old daughter in a car accident, my heart goes out to the families of the two young men lost this week in an airplane.
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.
Bob Burke (“Right-wing hypocrisy…”,CVBugle, Opinion) seems a little conflicted.
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.
Camp Verde Promotions and Camp Verde Business Alliance would like to thank all the volunteers that stepped up to help us put on another successful Cornfest.
In response to Mr. Mays’ July 14 Letter to the Editor concerning fees at the Verde Valley Senior Center, do you know how fortunate you are?
I started out to write a simple letter of thanks to all the people who protected and served over the 4th of July Holiday.
Congratulations to Doris Mintz of Prescott, who was the winner of the quilt at the Camp Verde Community Library.
In response to your article “SRP leads Verde water certainty initiative”; the article states that SRP is a “community based not for profit organization”.
I am writing to inform you of a grass roots movement to help the Environment and Wildlife. Fear and lack of awareness of the situation has stripped away environmental protections and recent laws have put our wildlife in jeoparday.
I just finished reading Allen C. McKinzie’s article and I was disappointed to see that while he did not agree with our findings, he failed to once mention the methodology used.
There is no political cartoon that could come close to encapsulating the true measure of this incompetent buffoon.
My wife and I retired to the Verde Valley over 16 years ago.
THANK YOU CVUSD! The Leadership Team for the Community Easter Service would like to give a special thank you to the facility staff of Camp Verde Unified School District.
Wow! Cindy Harms has concluded that, in just three months in office, President Trump, is responsible for every ill wind that blows around the earth while calling his White House “inept.”
West Clear Creek campground and recreation area has been a destination for people from around the country and around world. I believe in climate change unlike our current administration.
I would like to express my sincerest and warmest thanks to Russ Martin, Town Manager, and his family, for leading our Meals on Wheels March.
Letter: ‘Bad libraries build collections, good libraries build services, great libraries build communities’
Thank you so much for the very nice compliments you gave the Camp Verde Community Library in your commentary. As you know, we are all extremely proud of the accomplishment of our community in getting our new library built.
For those of us who volunteered in the old library, it was both a sad and “glad” day to see the old building come down this week.
I wish to publicly thank all the wonderful local restaurants who supported our first ever OLLI Open House here in Camp Verde.
Our Pecan and Wine Festival was a huge success. Thank you to all our vendors, volunteers, our board members, musicians and all the participants who purchased all our pecans, wine, and a huge variety of food and wares.
A big shout out to everyone who supported the Friends of Beaver Creek Library’s Fourth Annual Trek for Tech Fun Run held this past weekend in beautiful Lake Montezuma.
In my previous letter regarding changing our Marshall’s Office to Police Department there were 2 items I need to address.
In reading the minutes from the February 10, 2017 work session I found a request from Marshall Gardner for funds to change the name of the Camp Verde Marshall’s Office to the Camp Verde Police Department.
Is our rural lifestyle destined to die? Everyone dies right. Maybe it’s just our time. I love living in rural Arizona.
Your article on weed vs. guns reveals the absurdity of marijuana prohibition. Not only is the government’s understanding of marijuana and its users based on flawed premises, out-dated notions, and a lack of experience or understanding, but focusing on enforcing marijuana prohibition is a waste of money, manpower, and time.
Thanks to all our community friends who generously gave at our food drives from October through December 2016.
Opinion: Should the town manager be on contract? My opinion is NO! The best is to maintain current employment as is in the right to work environment as it encourages production/results.
I am a volunteer at Fort Verde and play Vintage Baseball on our team. I’d like to make a plea to any men, women, boys, and girls who love to play baseball. We have players from early teens to 70s, so age is not an issue, and we all love to play the game.
In many ways, Bob, I feel your pain. While I think the former President left a great deal to be desired in many Presidential respects, he was, as you say, a quite admirable human being. To say that the present office holder is a radical departure from what we have been accustomed to is apparent to all. Some are happy about that, others not so much.
To the person or persons who took a beautiful long haired large dog up to the Copper Canyon Trail head parking area and shot it in a sand wash, Shame on you!
Despite incessant chatter from certain quarters about Fascists, Nazis and Brown Shirts, to date we have only seen one group of people in the streets performing like actual Brown Shirts, and they have not been Secretary of State Hilary Clinton’s “Irredeemable Deplorables.”
In response to the letter Mr. Bob Burke submitted, I am pretty confused. What does “who” is President have to do with honoring our country? As Americans we should all stand for the National Anthem and the Pledge of Allegiance because it is the right thing to do to show our support.
Under his leadership, the world was a stable place compared to what we face now. His successor is just the opposite in all these respects. I miss my President.
I would like to thank all the people who came out to bowl in the BeneVet Bowling Funfest along with the sponsors and contributors.
What a wonderful caring community we live in. Thank you to all the bell ringers that donated their time ringing the bells for The Salvation Army for the last four weeks in front of Camp Verde’s Bashas’ Store.
