So why do I still wear a mask? I do it for you. We are starting to return to a bit of normalcy. We’ve gone to a few restaurants and breweries, some baseball practices and soccer matches with our grand-son, so I may have come into contact with someone who is transmitting or carrying the virus and I might pass it on to you. That’s why I wear a mask in public.
Years ago, during the Viet Nam era, I used to listen to Radio Hanoi on short wave. That’s when I learned a lifelong lesson.
I’m curious if Ms. Coffin took the free class she recommended. (If so, I definitely won’t.)

The Republican-led Arizona Legislator’s attempt to restrict voting rights and access to the ballot is a blatant attempt to enforce Communism on the voters of Arizona.

For all who call Arizona home, we have a duty to protect the lands that we build our lives upon. These diverse lands and the people, cultures, and faiths they are home to are what make this state so special.
Have you ever had one of those headaches that just won’t go away?
Philanthropic gifts poured into the Verde Historical Society during December, January, February and early March as a result of the 2020 Cares Act along with newly created personal, organization and business membership forms, amounting to nearly $12,000, putting the organization in the strongest financial position over the last five years.

Because Walt Blackman needs an enemy he thinks he can easily beat, in his recently disclosed run for a U.S.House seat, he decided to paint a target on Col. Wendy Rogers’ backside and denounce her for being a member of OathKeepers, even though Col Rogers, Walt Blackman and I are all veterans.
