Column | Would you move for a better job? Really?

Column | Democrats: Don’t root for crazy

When I watched someone who I thought was little more than a pompous, know-nothing goofball descend from his gaudy golden escalator to kick off his campaign, I thought he’d be nothing more than a laughingstock and a sideshow.

Column | Media faces challenges covering white nationalists, antifa and Trump

White Supremacists were supposed to descend upon Washington, D.C. this past weekend for a demonstration commemorating the anniversary of last year’s deadly “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville. One problem. Next to no one showed up.

Community View | Kingman’s interfaith dialogue has brought more peace to the community

For someone who had legally immigrated to this "land of the free" 47 years ago and has lived in Kingman since 1977, I find it surprising that a debate would now begin about the future of Muslims in America.
