Hello. My name’s Alana Neary, the 2016 Colonel’s Daughter and was wondering if you had heard about the rules being changed so a contestant could compete again even though she has graduated high school.

Letter: Wastewater fees in Camp Verde are unreasonable

Many Camp Verde wastewater customers were dumbfounded when the May 2018 sewer bills arrived. An increase had been rumored but why, we asked, had our rates jumped so high? As the dust settles, there are more questions than answers.

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.

Tease photo

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.

Tease photo

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.

Tease photo

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.

Tease photo

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: 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: In the right hands, handgun offers the ultimate protection

After reading this letter you may consider me to be a bit crazy. You may be right, however consider this; I not only subscribe to several gun magazines but also National Geographic, Smithsonian and Discover, so if I am a nut, I am a well-read nut.

Letter: There must be a better solution to recycling problem in Camp Verde

As a Camp Verde resident for over 20 years, I do not have much to complain about. I love this town and its people.

Tease photo

Letter: The problem with assumptions is that they are not always correct

On June 27, my angry letter, in which I accused the Camp Verde Town Council of making poor decisions about the town’s finances and priorities relating to the disappearance of our Camp Verde recycling center in the Bashas’ parking lot, was published in both the Bugle and Verde Independent papers.

Tease photo

Letter: Why don’t you just hire the guy who’s already doing the job?

I have a novel idea. Why don’t we save a lot of time and money, and just give the job to the guy who’s already doing it, and doing it well, according to our town manager?

Tease photo

Letter: Recycling a necessary, essential service for any community

Yesterday I went to recycle to find the recycling option disappeared from its location in the Bashas’ parking lot.

Letter: Never under estimate fire power of the underdog

History is replete with events where an armed citizenry was able to stand up to vastly superior firepower.

Tease photo

Letter: Second Amendment has nothing to do with duck hunting

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.)

Tease photo

Letter: Thanks to all for making Hands Healing Hunger Outreach a success

Thank You to the members of Christ Lutheran Church in Sedona and their Outreach Program “Hands Healing Hunger."

Tease photo

Letter: No gun law will keep bad guys from getting guns

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.

Town needs to lift cloak of secrecy on Nancy Gardner situation

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.

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”?

Tease photo

Letter: The demise of logical thought

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.

Tease photo

Letter: Sorry mom, but I’m going to speak my mind

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.

Tease photo

Letter: Congress only needs to supply the rope: Trump will hang himself

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.

Tease photo

Letter: Conflicting point of view

Bob Burke (“Right-wing hypocrisy…”,CVBugle, Opinion) seems a little conflicted.

Tease photo

Letter: Citizens must stand up and give a voice to animals, birds, trees

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.

Tease photo

Letter: Verifiable data drove results of study, not bias against Camp Verde

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.

Tease photo

Letter: No one has done more to disrespect office of Presidency than Trump

There is no political cartoon that could come close to encapsulating the true measure of this incompetent buffoon.

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.

Letter: Urban urban rules create urban development and we prefer rural

Is our rural lifestyle destined to die? Everyone dies right. Maybe it’s just our time. I love living in rural Arizona.

Tease photo

Letter: ‘Weed vs. Guns’ reveals absurdity of marijuana prohibition

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.

Tease photo

Letters: Many helping hands made food drive a success

Thanks to all our community friends who generously gave at our food drives from October through December 2016.

Tease photo

Letter: I feel your pain, but do not quit now; stand up for what is right

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.

Tease photo

Letter: Your animal deserved a more dignified death

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!

Tease photo

Letter: Not being in agreement with president doesn’t make him any less “My President’

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.”

Tease photo

Letter: Patriotism runs much deeper that your allegiaince, or lack of, to the president

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.

Tease photo

Letter: Already longing for the days of President Obama

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.
