Letter | Legislative immunity

Here we go again. The base of their argument is they can’t do their jobs if they are arrested. Neither can I, and neither can you.

Letter | Mayor Gates caved

I get it that this is a political year and it’s a free-for-all to get our votes, but to sell us out because some “get rich quick” TV show pointed a finger and said, “You’re racist,” is a sham.

Research has shown the benefits the Head Start programs produce for learning, behavior, health and parenting skills are significant.

Boss is a perfect example of someone who believes everything they see on TV is real and true.

Letter | Thank you to KRMC

One of the most terrifying things a person can go through is open heart surgery. When Dr. Bohkari discovered my father needed a quadruple bypass surgery, my concern immediately was the reputation of KRMC and the negative associations I had with it. I could not have been more wrong!

Letter | From a Muslim child of Kingman, with love

Kingman only needs to look inward at its Muslim community members and reflect on the contributions they have made. ... Muslims are an integral part of the fabric of Kingman. I am Kingman and Kingman is me. It will always be home.

Letter | This is not my grandfather’s Kingman

Kingman of today is vibrant, cultured and business friendly. The little sleepy town on Route 66 has awakened. We still embrace the past of the old western hero, Andy Devine, Route 66 and our mining, ranching history.

Letter | Mayor: Let’s make Kingman an even greater place to live

I am proud to call Kingman home and proud to serve as Mayor. The depiction of our community in the Showtime program “Who is America?” does not represent the vast majority of our residents. Let’s be clear, this program is not about exposing intolerance but about inciting intolerance.

Letter | Congressional candidate: Don’t blame Cohen, look at what Rep. Gosar has been doing

Watching the Sacha Baron Cohen video was a sad moment for me because the image he created is at odds with my experiences of Kingman. At the same time, we have to admit that the tone of hate and suspicion seen in the show, along with the willingness to express it openly, is increasingly common in the political arena and daily life.

Letter | More should have been done at airport

Saw the piece on Station 22, still wonder why the training tower is part of it, but neat, right.

Letter | Baron Cohen and Kingman

I saw aberrant attitudes and hatred of others in the "Town Meeting" as shown in the ghastly Sacha Cohen show, so I went back and reviewed all of the Letters to the Editor and other comments.

Community View | Social media is a tool for bullying

Our society actively and vigorously condemns the cowardly act of bullying and is working toward its elimination in the lives of both children and adults.

Letter | To those at the Acute Rehab Unit

In another day, hopefully, I’ll be leaving the recuperation facility, that medical orphan in the shape of a beautiful hospital east of town, to begin life – with a new hip – actually the other one’s just two years old.

Letter | Fetus or baby, it’s life

Seriously Ms. Stamn?

Letter | We are the UNITED States of America

I don't care if you're Republican or Democrat, conservative or liberal, or whatever party you wish to be affiliated with, black, white, brown or yellow, unless you're a Native American we ALL came from immigrants and this is the United States of America not the Divided States of America.

Letter | Poisoning animals

I am writing this as a concerned citizen and also as a victim of crimes in our area.

Letter | Polarizing rhetoric encourages divisiveness

The July 9 response to Danny Baker’s letter to the editor submitted under the name “Sam Wise” is exactly the kind of divisive political rhetoric that is polarizing the parties and dividing our community.

Letter | There's been an inch-by-inch move toward communism

As a result of decades of brainwashing and indoctrination from the media and the federal Department of Education, never again will we see any form of America being united.

Letter | For the Community involvement

Thank you to Kingman Police Corporal, Jack King, Northern Arizona Fire Captain, Brian Grant, Kingman Fire Engineer, Matt Wolsey and Mohave County Sheriff Officer, Kelly McCool for spending their Saturday morning teaching Girl Scout Troop 7147.

Letter | Lizard, arch not worth the money

Drove under the welcome to Kingman arch on June 6, and saw the lizard. These two items cost the citizens of Kingman around $200,000.
