Regina Cobb puts Arizona abortion bill in doubt – Cobb needs to vote “yes.” Don’t miss this chance. We have now slaughtered 60 million unborn babies; few babies are born without brains and Down syndrome babies can live happy, loved lives. You don’t kill a child who isn’t “perfect.”

Regina Cobb puts Arizona abortion bill in doubt – Thank you, Regina Cobb, for being the voice of reason regarding this draconian bill! This bill, like so many others regarding women’s reproductive rights, is a travesty of justice that should never have even come to a vote.

Kingman area not giving up on water legislation – Good job, Regina Cobb, on water rights issues. We no longer live in an age where we can be cavalier about water. We must protect what we have for the future.

Luis Vega’s Mohave County geology column: Why are rocks red? – Thanks, Luis Vega, for articles about Mohave geology. Many readers appreciate you taking time to share your knowledge. I save these articles, as I did your Wilderness Common Sense articles, for future reference. Great picture in your last article.

Kimball Shinkoskey letter: Forecasting the social weather – I, for one, am so sick of hearing about race in America and how horrible the evil whites are. We are probably one of the most fair countries on the globe. Get a life people; the only haters are liberals.

Kimball Shinkoskey letter: Forecasting the social weather – Great article Kimball! Let’s dump the partisanship and get on to the business of making life better for all of us!

Who gave kids on mini dirt bikes permission to ride on other people’s property and in neighborhoods? Where are the responsible parents? Very noisy and dusty. Shame on them.

Maggie Kraft letter: Bipartisan support needed for climate change – Great letter. It’s time to put away the partisan battles and get on with saving the place we live. There is no Planet B, people!

Rich Brindisi letter: A good time to give back – I agree completely. We need to return to a decent, compassionate place. That is the true greatness of this country. When we help one another we all rise!

To the ranter who feels we are “sensationalizing” COVID-19 – The suggestion that the lives of elderly people have less value than the lives of others is a road to Perdition. It is a callous, shameless and selfish disregard for the lives of those we share our community with.

Stanfield Major community view: Study the candidates, and vote your core values – Good letter, Stanfield Major. The voters of this area need to stop voting only for the R. Has the standard of living here been improved by representatives such as Trent Franks, Paul Gosar, Sonny Borrelli? These men are using you.

Miles recall election nixed due to improper procedures – Mayor Miles deserves to be recalled. She and her supporters have shown they are not on the side of actual science, rather on the side of fear porn and hyperbole. Relishing in control and subjugation. We refuse to comply.

Elections have consequences rant – I would honestly like to know what Biden specifically did to raise gas prices? He is catching the blame but it seems to be a prime example of corporate greed. Someone please intelligently explain using verifiable facts.

FEMA to help manage unaccompanied children at border – Biden just rustled up $86 million taxpayer dollars to feed and house 1,200 illegals in our hotels for six months. This same man, while misusing our National Guard, let them sleep in hallways and the Capitol parking garage. Incredible!

Look at the mess on the border. Somebody should load all the immigrants up and take them to where Biden and his cronies are in Washington.

Ducey talks disdain for voter-approved education tax, vows fast fix – How dare the governor try to overturn the will of the voters? Oh, I forgot. He won’t be trying to get elected again. Term limits. We mean nothing to him now.

COVID-19 kills 2, infects 63 more in Mohave County – New cases are still occurring, people are still dying. We need only look at the new surge in Europe to know it’s not time for a victory lap yet. It’s time to prevent the next surge here!
