What the state’s jobless report fails to show is the number of people who are out of work by choice. They could be working.
‘This spring has been a great social experiment -- in communal living, in family cohesion, in national purpose, in personal group selflessness. It also has opened our ears to birdsong and sharpened our eyes to nature. It may not have changed the Earth. But it may have changed us’
In one full swoop, Danny Howe went from puffing out his chest to doing a classic duck-and-run. He went from hero to shrinking violet in the blink of an eye.
I have participated on Transportation Planning Committees for more than four years. During that time I found that ojur leadership does a great job at balancing the needs of the different residents of Yavapaii County.
Just wanted to say how great it was to see the article on the Haunted Group and how the Jurisin family handled the shut down of its wonderful restaurants.
I recently received a mailing from VerdeDISConnect that was very negative about local leadership. I have participated on Transportation Planning Committees for more than four years. During that time I found that ojur leadership does a great job at balancing the needs of the different residents of Yavapaii County.
I want to recognize that we are all in this same pandemic storm, however, as many have already observed … we are not all in the same boat.
This crisis is not over. We must remain vigilant in the fight against COVID-19. As businesses begin the process to reopen and daily routines are restored, we urge Arizonans to continue to take proper precautions to protect themselves and others.
The next time you see a police officer just doing his or her job, take a moment to say thank you. It will mean more to them than you may realize.
At this particular time, I believe that the stated motivation of federal, state, and local governments for the personal distancing rules is the protection of the general public, including our own congregations. No one is trying to keep us from preaching the gospel.
All along I thought we had a good governor and now I am not so sure.

On behalf of the community members who will benefit, we thank the members of Agave Highlands Golf Club for their gifts of food and their time to help others.
This is response to the Clarkdale Water use article.
I take strong issue with the comments by Clarkdale’s mayor, Doug Von Gausig in the Verde Independent’s “Mayors react to Ducey’s new executive order” that makes it seem like Clarkdale’s businesses are not very much affected by the issues related to COVID-19 except 4 restaurants and 1 bar.
In March of 2019 “A Time Gone By” a Grand Ole Opry-style musical production tribute to local musician, Ray Sealing was held at the Phillip England Center for the Performing Arts in Camp Verde.
I realize that COVID-19 has wrecked our economy at all levels, which in turn hits our city’s revenues hard but I struggle to understand the city’s response of eliminating/furloughing so many positions.
When you’re out in public please take a minute to look around and see if you’re impinging on others.
From a healthcare perspective, reopening Arizona’s economy on a statewide basis could be just as disastrous as keeping it closed has been economically.
Gas is cheaper in Tucson, which gets more Texas-produced gas, and cheaper still in northeast New Mexico, which gets its gas from New Mexico refiners, which get their oil from companies using fracking.
This is hardly the time to be partisan and divisive. We should all be trying to work together and celebrate the achievements of all of the American people, right, left or anywhere in the middle.
