I first came to Kingman in 1994 and was impressed with nice tennis courts at Centennial Park. Recently I visited the courts after several years. It was a pleasant surprise to see the courts resurfaced, well maintained, and better than ever.

It does not matter what one’s opinion is of the world or of this country, state, city, community or flags.

Can’t Arizona find anyone who is truly educated and wants to accept the position of Secretary of State?

Tease photo

Tease photo

Letter | From a Muslim child of Kingman, with love
