Mohave County plans to improve roads – Interstate 40 is pretty messed up. When is someone going to fix that? Only one lane is really drivable, and even the trucks are beginning to ride in that lane, which will be torn up very soon.
Area code nonsense – I don’t get the point of having to dial 928 to call the store on the corner.
Wayne Hare’s Writers on the Range column: When will Black history become a part of American history – I don’t agree with everything Mr. Hare says but I agree that American history should include notable stories about Blacks. No course covers all of American history, but notable stories about anything in American history should be covered no matter who did it.
Mural of the Story: New Kingman program would incentivize murals on businesses, make city more colorful – How swell! Let’s paint the whole town like Tijuana. What’s next? A cathouse on every corner?
Portions of Havasu National Wildlife Refuge to closed for feral swine eradication – Instead of issuing free permits to hunters in the area they would rather pay exorbitant amounts of money for helicopters, pilots and professional hunters to go on an oink shoot for fun while wasting the meat.
William Ressegue letter: Bring back law and order – Thank you, William. If you’re not too busy, could you run for president next time? God knows, we need a million more just like you.
Michael Reagan column: Just say “Nyet” – Again, bashing everything and anything. No vaccine is 100% effective as with the COVID-19 vaccines, but should you become infected the odds of hospitalization or death are extremely low compared to those unvaccinated. So be thankful you are vaccinated.
