Mr. Westlund’s letter in the Sept. 6 issue of this newspaper closed with a scenario he posed to show what’s wrong with socialism.
I have noticed the surge about Colin Kaepernick being the Nike representative and I understand people’s concerns about him taking a knee to not salute the flag and personally it is wrong for him to do that because he is disrespecting our armed forces who sacrificed their lives.
I would like to congratulate Alex Barber on her primary win in Jerome and wish her success moving forward, as she undoubtedly will have a full plate on her agenda.
In the latest round of our debate on socialism, my opponent cited several examples of successful socialist states. However, he also averred that socialism and capitalism can co-exist, ergo socialist capitalism.
A true hero he was, a fine example of a man and human being,
Interesting that Kelli Ward would think that John McCain chose to die when it would do the most harm to her campaign for US Senate.
I am so disgusted with Pres. Trump. This man just couldn’t put aside his petty disagreements with Senator McCain and step out to honor him. He tweeted.
Thank you people of the area for supporting me when I had to move my bookstore to a smaller location.
In reply to Michael Westlund’s column in the Aug. 22 Verde Independent/Camp Verde Bugle, I’d like make a couple of points.
I do not know why the teachers and the board of Mingus Union High School are so opposed to this consolidation.
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.
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.
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.
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.
