“Let the Government Work” letter rants – “Elected officials should put party line aside and do what’s right for the country.” I see this comment from both sides. Guess what? What you think is right may not be what someone else thinks is right.

Most of the parking under shade trees at Lewis Kingman Park is gone. Road curbs on both entrances on both sides have been painted red with “No Parking” signs. With summer heat coming, why not just paint one side red leaving access for a fire truck.

World hurtling to climate danger zone with brakes half pulled – What’s Mr. UN comparing present climate to in order to declare it’s now “getting worse?” The 1970s promised us the “ice age,” the ‘80s death by ozone/acid rain, and next was global warming. Science people haven’t been right once in a century.

Why are there hundreds and hundreds of trees planted outside of the airport and near Valle Vista? I thought we were conserving water?

Mohave County Supervisors approve grant application – A grant for an interchange! What about a grant to fix the roads?

Smith’s and Walmart connectivity – This has been going on since Walmart opened. I walk over to Smith's, but some are unable to do that. Why can`t the city force the issue?

Kingman Miner’s April 6 amusements page – First thing, in large type, under the “Amusements” page header in the Dear Abby column: “Friend traumatized after woman’s shooting murder.” Not very amusing.
