It seems that all of Arizona government (legislative, executive and judicial branches) have decided that the public school system is worthless

I am a member of a large group of citizens residing in the Verde Valley who have been working together to promote change in the Cottonwood Airport situation.

Our senators – Mark Kelly and Kyrsten Sinema – were both elected by staying middle-of-the-road. They both know how vital it is to keep Arizona businesses competitive and successful, and they have not stood in the way of what has made Arizona’s economy thrive.

As Russia is invading Ukraine it is a sad and tragic event and we all have our opinions and theories whether it would've happened or not if Trump was President or if the Keystone Pipeline is still open or some of the controversies involving Hunter Biden where Ukraine is concerned?

I so admire the Ukrainians. They are fighting bravely and valiantly for their democracy. Because of the U.S. and President Biden's leadership, NATO has never been so united, and we're bringing the world together in defense of Ukraine.

Bravo to Angela Loscalzo for her well-reasoned reply on Feb. 13 to the naivety of the Geni Hart’s Feb. 6 letter to the editor regarding responsibility for the consequences of President Biden’s actions.

Feb. 4, the Clarkdale Historical Society and Museum offered a presentation at the Clark Memorial Clubhouse Gymnasium titled “Don’t Date the Boys from Clarkdale.” Many were in attendance and celebrated visiting with one another after a long dry spell.

To all those advocating defunding the police, the other night, several Phoenix police officers were wounded rescuing a baby girl from a dangerous situation.

Like Charles Wright, I am a life-long Republican and agree with him on many of his points. I disagree with him on leaving the party and registering as an Independent. Our primary system is broken. It doesn’t support Independents or moderate Republicans and Democrats.

Kudos to Dorothy R. Pedro’s letter Feb. 2. She is spot on the mark in her assessment.

I was so pleased with some letters from Republicans who are “not drinking the Kool-Aid.” There is nothing more that I could hope for than a strong second party. Why don’t you differentiate yourselves from Trump?

Mr. Doug Melton states that the insurrectionists of 1/6/21, were not armed (Letters to the Editor, Jan. 30, 2022, Verde Independent). You don’t have to look very far at the videos and the pictures to see that most of them were armed and people did die.

Is America divided? Yes. Those who voted for Biden are now questioning their choice, and if they aren’t, they should be. Hopefully, it is his extreme liberal policies that will wake up Americans to vote out these liberals ruining our liberties and safety. And, the 2022 elections are a good way to start.

I agree with Charles Wright that the Republican Party needs to rethink and rebuild. What has happened to them? Currently, it doesn’t seem like they believe in or are willing to vote for any issues that affect their constituents. They only vote against the Democrats -- no matter what the issue is.

For too long, the Republicans have been the lap dogs of the Democrats, offering token resistance, and then with a wink and a nod, helping turn our country more socialist, a bit at a time, while making a cozy living from campaign contributions from large corporate interests and defense contractors while selling out the American people.

I was once a Republican. Once the Jan. 6 insurrection happened, I just couldn’t continue so I became an Independent. Of course my life didn’t change but as I continued to watch and read the news I just couldn’t help but be appalled at Republican behavior.

I am heartbroken and angry! My husband was admitted to the Verde Valley Medical Center in Cottonwood on Oct. 29 and passed away on Oct. 32, 2021.

It happened on Friday night, Jan. 14, with about 12:40 left in the second half of the Mingus Union High School girls’ soccer game. It was then announced for all the fans on the Mingus side to leave the stands and field under threat of a forfeit of the game. This was demanded by an apparently very distraught, overly sensitive referee. All done without even a warning.

In all the debates over masking kids in Verde Valley schools, there’s one statistic I haven’t seen mentioned.

I want to give you a quick update on some of the challenges we are experiencing in keeping our schools open. As I am sure you are aware, our community and nation have seen an increase in spread of the Omicron Variant of COVID-19.
