The graffiti is getting ridiculous in some areas. It’s time for the city and county to institute hotlines and removal programs.

A big “thank you” to the couple who stopped on Southern Avenue to help push our truck to our house on Mountain Trail Saturday night. Also to the two men who came out of their house to help. You all are amazing.

Taliban sweeps Into Afghan capitol – The Taliban’s takeover of Afghanistan is not the fault of Biden or any other American. The loss is the total failure of its own army as they were fully trained but coward under pressure. We could not stay any longer.

13 dead, 133 more infected with COVID in Mohave County – Get a grip, people! This virus, killing unvaccinated and younger victims, is spreading. No amount of false bravado, conspiracy theories or prayer can help. God helps those who help themselves and love their neighbors. Get the vaccine and mask.

Virus surge taxing KRMC – Thank you for printing the truth about Kingman’s COVID cases. My sister, a Kingman resident, is in complete denial regarding vaccines, the pandemic, etc. Hopefully articles such as these will help her and hundreds more like her.
