After reading the article in the Aug. 11 Verde Independent, I was moved to write in response.
The Friends of Clark Memorial Library want to thank our donors and everyone who helped make this year’s Summer Reading Program, A Universe of Stories, a success.
I see that Steve Adelsman is wringing his hands publicly about what do with illegal aliens in this country other than heartlessly deporting them -- and he has no answer.
We couldn’t have done it without your help. The kids -- and the parents really enjoyed the show.
In response to Gary Mialocq’s letter that appeared in the Aug. 1 Villager, I would like everyone to know that he misrepresented me as an officer of the Big Park Council.
I do not understand how such a public occurrence as the debates among candidates for the president of the United States can be limited and not available to all of the American people.
There is much discussion lately about health care. I would like to relate my experience with Medicare that is being purported as the more popular and the best health care. As an elderly person, it is my only option.
As Trump seems to normalize violence in this country, Jeffery Goldberg, editor in chief of the Atlantic.com, recently wrote in an article entitled, He’s Getting Worse, ...”with Trump’s larger goal, it seem(s) to stoke fear among white Americans of dark-skinned foreigners”, and then he goes on to say, “It’s depressing to realize that we were correct (in endorsing Hillary, not for love, but fear of Trump) and it is depressing to think that there is no immediate way out of this crisis.”
A historic cemetery, that can be dated back to the 1800’s, can be found at the end of Old Church Road in Camp Verde. Clear Creek Cemetery, a pioneer cemetery, is maintained solely by volunteers and entirely funded with donations.
I have attended all of the public meetings for the proposed APS substation on 89A and keep hearing about items that should have been done, but they were not.

Fifty years ago this month, I was glued to my TV watching the first moon landing.
Thanks go out to the Verde Canyon Railroad for their donation of two first-class tickets to support Clark Memorial Library.
I have lived on 89A since before the roundabouts and called it the bypass road since it was built for the cement trucks and I understand with financial aid from the cement plant so the cement trucks could avoid downtown Clarkdale and Cottonwood. NOTE: Bypass and for the cement trucks.
As a past superintendent of Mingus Union High School, I would like to congratulate the present board of governors for their wisdom in appointing Mr. Mike Westcott as their new superintendent.
The Sons of the American Legion Squadron #9 would like to thank all of those who participated in the Labor Day Catfish Contest and we hope you all had fun on the Verde River.
For those of us who are truly concerned about the economic future of our Village (ie. property values, tax revenue), we should consider positive change rather than immediately oppose it.
I find that current reporting seems to hold the Catholic Church to a higher standard than what Protestant churches are held to or is it because people believe the Catholic Church has deep pockets. Let’s be fair. Report all abuse.
