The city and county need to address bulk trash pickup and come up with a solution. The area surrounding town has become a free landfill. The landfill is so far away people do not want use it.

We like Mexican food just like most people do, but it seems to me that there are way too many Mexican restaurants in Kingman. Why allow two right next door to each other? Who gives out these permits?

Coming Attraction: Mohave County’s busiest branch library is now bigger, better than ever – So excited for the opening! During the COVID Branch Manager Beverly Clouse and her employees have gone out of their way to continue giving us the services of the library. Having the library has been my saving grace!

Coming Attraction: Mohave County’s busiest branch library is now bigger, better than ever – A big “bravo” to all the library staff who have diligently worked through a construction zone and COVID restrictions. I’d be lost without my books!

A mask worn by a sick person benefits many; a mask worn by a healthy person benefits only one. Why should we all wear a mask? We don’t know who may be carrying the virus: asymptomatic.

Sandra Parker letter: COVID-19 is no worse than the common flu – I’ve had two classmates, married to each other, who came down with COVID. One died; one still very ill. Their 40-something-year-old son died of COVID about two weeks prior. Others I know of also. Flu? No.

Sandra Parker letter: COVID-19 is no worse than the common flu – It’s true that some people are fortunate to have mild symptoms with COVID-19. It’s also true some die from it! We are nearing 270,000 dead nationwide; more than 2,000 a day, currently. I’ll wear a mask!

Sandra Parker letter: COVID-19 is no worse than the common flu – This is why we`re in the predicament we're in - denial and false information. Closing in on 300,000 dead, and some couldn't care less.

Sandra Parker letter: COVID-19 is no worse than the common flu – Glad your sister is lucky; not everyone is. My closest friend, an eye doctor, contracted COVID and has suffered with the virus. Today was admitted to the hospital. He can hardly breathe. We are praying.

Feral cats and other roaming cats are leaving feces and urinating on my private property. You need to have your cat fixed and keep it in your own yard. Don’t say you just feed them, and they’re not yours.

Mohave County Supervisors grill public health officials over vaccine – It’s a surprise that county supervisors are asking questions about the vaccine at all. They have displayed little interest in public health so far. Ron Gould is self-proclaimed as anti-vaccine. He should recuse himself from the issue.

Tom Ciardullo letter: Give the next president a chance – Donald Trump gave up a good life, even his salary, to dig this country out of the hole Obama and Biden sunk us in. His accomplishments are stunning. To let this America-destroying left do it again, no way!

Lawmakers to hear election evidence from Trump lawyers in Phoenix – Doesn’t take much research to know this election was fraudulent. Why did the liberals push so hard for mail-in ballots? To throw the election, of course. Most of us know Kyrsten Sinema last time won fraudulently over Martha McSally.

Lawmakers to hear election “evidence” from Trump lawyers in Phoenix – Rudy Giuliani leading a pack of election deniers with zero real evidence in an attempt to overturn the will of the voters! How sad for Democracy does this get? And what a blow to public confidence in the fair election system.
