Column | A civics test to graduate high school? Absolutely

It was an inspiring lecture. One of my finest. And then, I brought up D-Day. Spend enough time in the classroom and you learn to read students’ faces. They say so much.

Community View | A citizen’s response to Councilmember Travis Lingenfelter

Councilmember Lingenfelter, you say Doug Angle and Raid 2.0 cohorts don’t want to debate because they would be clobbered, and you challenged Angle or someone from Raid 2.0 to a public community debate, which the response was crickets.

Letter | Prop 127 will make small businesses move

I like to think things are picking up in Kingman, and I would imagine the rest of the state is seeing similar trends. Unfortunately, if Prop. 127 passes, it will create unemployment and undue stress on small businesses. I don’t want to see either of these things happen.

Letter | The TPT initiative

The issue of Prop 413, the TPT initiative is really simple. Repeal the Aug. 15, 2017, 1 percent sales tax increase and mandate that all future sales tax increases be placed on the ballot for the vote of the people.

Letter | K-9 Foundation grateful for help, could use more

I would like to express my gratitude to the community of Kingman. I have lived here for 14 years. Until I became a member of the Board of the Mohave County Sheriffs K-9 Foundation, I never knew what a caring and generous town I lived in.

Column | Do you have an irrational fear of Halloween?

My son Gideon will not be trick-or-treating this year. It’s not because of any fear of ghosties and ghoulies, mind you. We decided last year that his advancing age meant 2017 would be the last hurrah for the door-to-door begging.
