It saddens me that it’s been over a year and masks have become the norm.
Why are the Old Town residential streets ignored? Potholes, severe damage and yet tons of money put into a new walking path, and splash pads.
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.
Of late it seems that Senator Wendy Rogers has become the target of repeated hate-filled attacks.
A serious state-level problem is that Republicans who won their seats are now attempting to undermine and outright negate our votes.
Mr. Reed must have been the one living in a basement.
The Town of Camp Verde has settled the defamation lawsuit with Mr. Bruce George and neither Joe Butner nor Bill LeBeau received any sanctions or reprimands for their very low-class, unethical behavior.
I agree that John McCain might be a more poignant name of Hwy 260, since he was a famous local. However, you didn’t need to cherry pick the Trump-slamming letters.
After reading Sunday’s letters to the editor it seems that the development of a vaccine for (TDS) “Trump Derangement Syndrome” would go a long way to achieve that goal.
I wish to thank the 16 volunteers who helped cleanup the two-mile section of Highway 260 on Saturday, Feb. 20.
As many already have, I am writing to express my disdain from the mere mention of Wendy Rogers’ proposal to rename State Route 260 after the infamous Donald J. Trump.
At first the impeachment trial of former president Trump seemed silly. Why spend time and money to remove a man from office when he is no longer in office?
I don’t think that anything in the area should be named after Donald Trump unless they open a new landfill.
Donald J. Trump has amply shown that he does not deserve our honor in any way; quite the contrary in fact.
What could be the reason for State Senator Wendy Rogers to suggest changing the name of Highway 260 to “Donald J. Trump Highway?”
As an independent voter, I am opposed to naming any of our public highways after political figures, regardless of party.
Wendy Rogers’ idea of naming highway 260 after Donald J Trump is the worst idea she has ever had.
The only appropriate name that fits is our hero. He was a resident of Yavapai County for many, many years.
If we are going to be naming any road in Arizona, especially the 260, it should be named after John McCain.
True patriots put country over party. Seven GOP Senators did exactly that.
Saturday (Feb. 13, 2021) there was an accident at Zalesky/89A that blocked traffic. Coming from Sedona traffic was backed up to the Catholic Church to be detoured to turn right onto Mingus Avenue.
The Republican senators are the jury for a trial that is legal and serious.
During this pandemic that we all are struggling through, I got to experience what should be a model for all dispensing of the Covid-19 vaccine.
I have lived in the area since 2002 and I have noticed an increase in short-term rentals and new hotels but a lack of affordable housing that allows small pets.
No doubt, the last year has been difficult.
Wendy Rogers is recommending that the State of Arizona designate Highway 260 to be named after the most recent past president of the United States.
If you don’t want to have to see Donald Trump’s name every time you turn toward I-17, contact Wendy Rogers.
State Route 260 deserves a name that the people can take pride in, not one that will only be the source of unending dissension.
Legalization of marijuana does not mean it is safe, especially for our youth. Now is the time for parents and school staff to talk with our students about the use of all dangerous drugs and be conscious of behavior and signs that can indicate use.
Grades 1-8 in one segment and the higher grades are given in another. Surely, in our country something similar could be set up until we’re ready for in person teaching again.
I’m grateful to Spectrum and everyone who worked together to protect our community.
The stench is worse today than it was a month ago, and it becomes almost overwhelming when it gets dark, peaking about 9:30-10:30 p.m.
Just WHO should be promoted to mask enforcer and with what special training to deal with the myriad of medical reasons folks cannot wear a mask?
You are genuinely some of the kindest, nicest people I have come across. You inspired me to take the time to let you know how beautiful your town is and how much appreciated it is to know there are still little places, on this planet, where you can find good people.
The AIRC should designate specific “listening meetings” where the AIRC hears respectful and constructive comments, without making decisions.
Based on my experience with Fry’s refusal to enforce their sign, “Masks required…” (implying WEARING a mask), perhaps the sign should be changed to “Masks recommended…” or, more appropriately, “Masks not required…”
I recommend urging the House of Representatives to censure Gosar. Then remove him from all his committee assignments.
The destruction of democracy is not an option, and not the job they were hired to do. They are supposed to work for us, NOT the other way around.
He has supported groups that promote hate and violence. He absolutely should not be representing our county on any level of government.
First time I ordered winter hay for my horse I was lucky enough to have Robert help me. Being new at this Robert made me feel like I was the ONLY person in all of Yavapai County who owned a horse. Very patient and very helpful.
The City of Cottonwood has now annexed Spring Creek Ranch and 11 square miles of National Forest against the wishes of most Verde Valley residents that have involved themselves.
According to the information I have received the COVID-19 vaccine began mass distribution on Monday January 25th to those in the group 65 and older.
The traditions and norms enshrining the peaceful transfer of power are a hallmark of our country’s vitality and resilience.
I love poll workers, and sincerely thank Bruce Carlson (letter to the editor, January 24) for his service.
This is a thank you note to the 8 volunteers who cleaned up the section of Highway 260 across the road from WalMart. T
Bruce Carlson of Camp Verde, who said he was a poll worker on November 3rd (letter to editor on January 24, 2021), claims he did not see any evidence of voter fraud at his precinct.
Dear President Joe and First Lady Jill Biden, the word is you are thinking of adopting a cat, and I have one to offer.
The Jan. 10 commentary in the Verde Independent reminded me of The Onion and The Babylon Bee.
On Nov. 3 as a poll worker in Camp Verde, my civic duty was completed after 14 hours on-site.
