Editorial: Garcia-Soto case the ultimate example of slow-moving wheels of justice
Few criminal cases stretch the boundaries of slow-moving justice as does the bizarre death-penalty case involving Cesar Garcia-Soto.

As with many death penalty cases, the one against Garcia-Soto is complicated. There has been delay upon delay. One lawyer was allowed to quit. That required more time to find a new lawyer willing to take the case.

Letter: At least Trump has a policy
How bad were the elections in 08, 12, pretty bad, Remember Hillary WOW, what mouth, spewing hatred about Obama and him back at her. Ronald Reagan was hated as outsider and movie star but he had a vision for America a good one, the U.S. thrived.

Letter: Legislature needs to address Yavapai College issue
Mr. Oliphant is right on or en pointe when he said, "The remedy is for legislation to create a separate contiguous taxing district for a Verde Valley Community College. That is the only long-term solution to the continued absence of post-secondary learning opportunities in the Verde Valley."

Letter: Time to seriously consider county split from Prescott
Every since I first moved to the Verde Valley in 2000, I have noticed that the governments of the Verde Valley and the governments of Prescott, Prescott Valley, and all the communities on the west side of the local mountains cannot agree on much of anything.

Commentary: Calling All Millennials, it's your turn: Vote!
Time to set the record straight - millennials do vote. While 18-29 year-olds don't vote as much as those 30 years and up, a glimpse into the last few election cycles points out the youth vote did increase in 2004 and again in 2008. And from 2008 to 2012, the share of young voters making up the electorate once again increased.

The supporters of Donald Trump are a unique group. They all know he's self-centered, self-serving, a narcissist, a bigot and racist. When asked, they say they don't care.

Sedona Recycles did not suddenly raise prices
I am writing in response to Dan Engler's commentary, "Free enterprise spells end of government subsidies for recycling," and Tom Tracey's article, "Recycling bins may go away in Camp Verde."

Commentary: 9/11 -- Hope in vulnerability
Fifteen years ago today, I was living in Phoenix and I had just shown up to LA Fitness for my daily workout. Most people don't talk much when they work out in a big city gym.  They all have their headphones in and are transfixed by the television monitors in front of them.
