I totally agree with previous letters regarding traffic enforcement here in Cottonwood, or should I say the lack of it. My area of concern is Cove Parkway and the stretch of Cottonwood Street in front of Safeway/Sawmill Square.
Ukraine is not responsible for higher fuel prices. Biden pulled the plug on our energy production in January. Russian invasion of Ukraine was Feb. 24. At that time only 10% of oil was coming from /Russia and now none.
In response to Mr. Rod Rosenbarger “Where’s a cop when you need one?”..... He’s so right! I have lived here in Cottonwood for 23 years and I have never seen a police car out watching traffic.
Where is our police presence in Cottonwood? You virtually never see a squad car on the street.
I’m glad the Verde Independent decided to stop wasting ink on Yavapai County COVID-19 updates. The falling ratios in the “Vaccinated vs. Unvaccinated” section can be very disturbing.
People freaking out over the zero percent chance of getting their guns taken by the government
Glad to see SpringHill’s typical box hotel go up fairly quickly.
K Runyon commented in your April 27 edition that the new Marriott Hotel Springhill Heights on 89A is not to her satisfaction.
Minimization is in vogue. One wouldn’t think it would apply to commercial buildings looming boldly on a main highway.
Earlier this month, a bipartisan majority in the U.S. Senate voted to rejected David Weil’s nomination to run the Hour and Wage Division of the Labor Department.
In response to Lu Parker’s criticism of the City of Cottonwood and its Manager Ron Corbin regarding proposed annexation and the condition State Route 89A in Cottonwood.
Regarding Charlie Wright’s letter hoping for a blue wave in Arizona this year, has he forgotten that with Democrats in power in D.C. we now have huge inflation, high crime with reduced penalties, and perhaps the worst foreign policies ever?
It’s coming. I can feel it. A big blue wave is coming to Arizona. A wave of Democratic candidates sweeping the state in the coming mid-term elections.
The City of Cottonwood is pursuing the annexation of three properties along the Verde to make the river “their own.” They can’t even take care of what is theirs already.
Having the local political body managing the day-to-day operations of the local police department is a bad idea.
About a hundred people showed up for the Airport Master Plan community input meeting March 31.
I am old enough to remember the Hungarian Uprising in 1956. Apparently a majority of Hungarians are unable to share those memories, due either to senility or youth.
Cottonwood City Manager Ron Corbin is confused and is not providing the city council or general public with factual information regarding issues of annexation.
The Clarkdale Historical Society and Museum extends a heartfelt thanks to the community for its support of our recent Plant Sale, which sold out in a few hours.
I think a perfect regional airport location would be off the Beaverhead Flat Road.
My home in the small, rural community on Willow Tree Lane borders several parcels of state park land in Yavapai County. I purchased my house over 25 years ago.
As I watch our southern border wide open and allowing millions of illegal aliens, including sex traffickers and fentanyl and drugs from drug cartels and terrorists from all over the world pour into our country, I’m dismayed and shocked. I’m wondering why is Biden purposely hurting our country with the lawlessness and defunding our border patrol and our police?
Regarding the partial annexation of Willow Tree Lane neighborhood, (I say “partial” because this annexation intentionally splits the neighborhood apart, in more ways than one):
Thank you, Republicans, for showing us your true colors once again. In the 2020 election, “we the people” voted in proposition 208 to fund our schools and give our teachers a pay raise. But you threw Proposition 208 out the window.
Where are your critical thinking skills? With the current trend in “fake news” and trying to find correct information, critical thinking skills need to be used.
