What we need is a hunting season on barking dogs. The people who own them don’t hear them, and they won’t talk to you about it.
Planning commission considers driveway improvement amendment – The planning commission should consider an ordinance amendment to require builders to pave the unimproved dirt streets they’re building on. That would help with dust!
Mural of the Story – I sincerely hope that the Kingman Economic Development Department has better ideas for promoting downtown Kingman than providing financial assistance for painting graffiti on walls and making us look like Tijuana.
Mural of the Story – Wow, first a Tesla charging station and now murals for tourists. Why do our city officials keep catering to people that don’t live here? I have visited tourist attractions in other states but don’t want to see it daily.
Mural of the Story – Please don’t flood our downtown area with murals for tourists’ enjoyment. The tourists come and go. We live here, pay sales tax, property tax, and patronize local businesses on a daily basis. Don’t circus up our hometown.
Paul Gardner Daniel obituary – We are blessed to have crossed paths with Pastor Paul. There will never be another like him. It has been an honor knowing this godly man. Sending sympathy to his loved ones.
Twenty quilts made from clothes left on Arizona migrant trails – Sorry, but they’re not migrants; they’re illegals who give little thought to their children. We have a legal way to come here – millions have used it including my Texas friends, who despise illegals bringing diseases, drugs, thefts and more.
Free N-95 masks rant – I totally agree with this person. Nothing is free. Let’s not forget the so-called free COVID test kits. They’re not free; the taxpayers will have to pay for them, also.
I’d like to thank those in the community who are doing the absolute bare minimum to end this pandemic by receiving their free vaccinations and wearing masks when in groups to protect others. True patriots!
Carl Golden column: Will Hillary run for president again? – Suggesting President Biden won’t run? His first year has lowered unemployment, created jobs, lifted thousands of families above poverty, ended the Afghanistan war, and handled a horrific pandemic! But mentioning Hillary gets right-wingers crazy. Did the Miner pay for this?
