Letter: Why is Mingus so opposed to consolidation?

I do not know why the teachers and the board of Mingus Union High School are so opposed to this consolidation.

Letter: ‘The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money’

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.

Letter: Congressional bait ‘n’ switch an insult to American people

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.

Letter: Camp Verde needs to do away with out-dated residency requirement for town marshal

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.

Letter: One again, the folks in Camp Verde show generous spirit

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.

Letter: While you follow your heart, I want to follow the money

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.

Letter: If I choose to protest, it will be an act of free will, bold definance

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.

Letter: Supervisor Garrison steps up to keep land swap process moving on positive path

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.

Letter: Clarity on city debt more a case of further muddying the waters

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.

Letter: How many stupid questions has editor asked in his career?

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.

Letter: Before you vote on consolidation, get the best, most accurate information possible

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.

Letter: Hostile environment? Camp Verde is not that kind of town

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.

Letter: Clarity on city debt total straight from the source

There have been a lot of numbers thrown around concerning how much debt Cottonwood has. If you know the right places to look and can discern from that information, that is one way to do it.

Letter: I’d rather have a city councilman who knows the facts and reports them accurately

Thank you to the League of Women Voters for sponsoring Wednesday night’s candidate forum. The candidates were civil and respectful and mostly truthful with a few exceptions.

Letter: Residency requirement for manager, yes; no for Camp Verde town marshal

I would like to clarify my position on the residency requirement for the positions of Marshal and Town Manager.

Letter: Helping hands needed for Clear Creek Cemetery

I realize that we (Clear Creek Cemetery) are always in need of money like all non profit organizations are, but this time I am asking for something different. The cemetery is in need of water hoses. They need to be at least 50 feet long so that we can water the trees that are dying.

Letter: Mingus Union School Board ‘power mad if not insane’

The attempt by the Mingus Union School Board to block the voter initiative to decide the merits, of school district consolidation is by far the most egregious attempt to subvert the will of the people.

Letter: ‘Official’ records of Verde Valley rainfall sadly lacking

Last year about this time - actually the end of July - your paper reported the July monthly rainfall using information provided by our local chapter of the National Weather Service as somewhere around maybe an inch and three quarters.

Letter: Trying to block election shows school board has forgotten who they serve

For the 26 years I have lived in the Verde Valley and have watched and heard the Mingus Union School Board explain why consolidation was not the way to go.

Letter: Questions and observations about school district consolidation

What is everyone afraid of? It hasn’t passed in 30 years. Let the voters have their say.

Letter: Actions of Mingus School Board have changed my opinion on consolidation

How dare they take taxpayers’ hard-earned money and sue a taxpayer-initiated petition process.

Letter: Foolish move by Mingus to subvert the rights of the people

So, Mingus is suing to stop an election, the results of which they think may not be to their liking.

Letter: If you want to talk about a president abasing himself before a tyrant ...

I have to wonder, where was Senator McCain when President Obama was bowing to the king of Saudi Arabia. Wanna talk about a president abasing himself before a tyrant.

Letter: Nothing like family

174 rockets were fired at Israel last weekend. Our Holy Land, where the Temple once stood, is under attack yet again.
