It’s time for all us to ask some simple questions about the Mingus Union School Board and their approval to officially proceed with the lawsuit against the Committee for Better Upper Verde Valley Schools. Is this to show us we must all follow the letter of the law? If so is the letter of the law followed by this board?
In its lawsuit to halt the November election on school district consolidation, one of the primary points of contention for Mingus Union High School is that petition circulators put the cart before the horse.
Especially here in the Verde Valley over the past year, it’s been tough – very tough – to be a school board member.
I do not know why the teachers and the board of Mingus Union High School are so opposed to this consolidation.

First off, I get that when you ask a question of a candidate at a forum, whether political or otherwise, you are simply trying to get that person’s perspective on a subject, trying to learn how they might think about other things, based on their answer.
The United States of America is hated by numerous nations and groups. That’s certainly no surprise, and I need not delineate the myriad culprits. But our greatest enemy – and one that the mainstream media ignores – is not without, it is within. Our greatest enemy is us, or to be more precise, the “us” that teeters ever more not just Lefter and Lefter but into the dangerous miasma of socialism and its eventuation into communism and totalitarianism.

The concern over the future of vocational education in the Verde Valley should consolidation take place is far more anchored in rhetoric than reality.
I, for one, am sick and tired of the bait ‘n’ switch that infects much of the legislation proposed in Congress. I’m also tired of how that system is used to over-characterize or/and mis-characterize the votes of our representatives in the House and Senate.
As they embark on new ventures in Phoenix, we would like to thank Jason and Vicki Douvikas for their service to the Camp Verde community.
I would like to urge every Camp Verde voter to vote against any candidate who supports the out-dated residency requirement for the office of town marshal.
The most awesome wonderful generous people live in the Verde Valley. We put the word out that the Clear Creek Cemetery was in need of water hoses.
It’s beginning to look like the Cottonwood Chamber of Commerce is finally going to be able to sell its property located at the busy SR 260 and SR 89A intersection and the community will get a Starbucks coffee shop in the process.
It’s fair to call this group a current and former “Who’s Who of Verde Valley Educators.”
Normally, I would eschew any retort to what I’d written. But in the case of “If I choose to protest, it will be on act of free will, bold defiance,” I simply cannot let this delusion pass.
This letter is in response to one which appeared recently in which the writer alleged that most political demonstrations were and are instigated and financed by various left-wing organizations. I can not remain silent under that old-saw, right-wing attack.
A note of thanks to my fellow Supervisor Randy Garrison!.Few people understand the time, energy and effort that it takes for an “Act of Congress” to actually occur. No wonder the phrase is often used when there is a large undertaking that is going to consume so much time.
Although the writer promises clarity on the city’s debt issue he has once again muddied the waters as he did in the candidate forum presented by the League of Women Voters on 7/25.
As Yavapai County Sheriff, my top priority is public safety. As such, I would like to address the call to “abolish ICE” by a minority of elected officials.
Sedona is in the middle of a primary election. Ballots go out on August 1; Election Day is August 28.
In Dan Engler’s editorial about the forum it appears he does not understand the process. The Camp Verde Republican Forum will not repeat questions that Dan has already asked the candidates. These have been asked and answered. Nor is Dan likely to have any input into questions that are asked unless he submits question to; http://campverderepublicans.com/forum.html.
Regardless of the careless actions of the Mingus Union School Board and superintendent, please do not punish the children. The state legislature continues not to fund education at an appropriate level. The need for districts in the state of Arizona to pass overrides and bonds will not go away.
I just read the Sunday Camp Verde Bugle and was quite astonished to learn that ONE single candidate could have a scheduled program canceled because he was not comfortable attending. If this was truly the reason, all he had to do was not show up.
