Our View


Let us all give thanks

We’re grateful.

Saturday heroes

Lord knows, we love Saturdays.

A political puppet show

No one showed up. Very interesting.

Fear and hope; Death and love

Death. Mayhem. Bitter debate. The slaughter of innocents.

Support universities

Good work.

Only the firefighters are doing their jobs

State, local and federal officials continue to bungle the crucial task of restoring the forests on public land to a healthy state — and protecting forested communities from wildfires.

Charter school: Hope and fear must contend

Fear and trembling.

Settlement stems from leadership

We’re delighted that all of Rim Country’s representatives in the state Legislature supported the settlement of the festering school inflation-funding lawsuit.

At least put on the Band-Aid

Maybe it’ll all be over by the time you read this.

Forests at risk

Thank goodness for Arizona Forward.

Baby steps

Baby steps. Baby steps. Let us be grateful for baby steps.

At long last

The sale’s complete. The sale’s complete.

At the moment, Einstein’s bit of wisdom would seem to apply admirably to The Pine Strawberry Water Improvement District.

The test we must not fail

We’ve got a bad feeling about this, Poncho.
