Ahwatukee letter: Terrorism can happen anywhere
Posted: November 25, 2015

These recent Paris attacks have seemed to make our leaders reassess how much our country needs to strengthen its own defense. Just this recently, Jeb Bush and a couple other Republican candidates called for troops on the ground to fight the Islamic state. They’ve also spoken more about funding the defense programs that will be so vital to fighting our enemy countries, like the F-35 program. It is refreshing to hear this. Our leaders are chosen partly because we trust them to keep us safe. After seeing the Paris attacks, it’s clear that terrorism can happen anywhere at anytime. That is why it is vitally important to have the capabilities to strike back and defend ourselves against the enemies who want to destroy our way of life.

Ahwatukee Letter: Take a deep breath: Things may be looking up
Posted: November 24, 2015

There’s been lots of talk and community discussion over the past half year about what will happen to the former Ahwatukee Lakes Golf Course under its new ownership. We were all tired of the old owner, who couldn’t work with the city of Phoenix and let the property go to waste. When the new owners bought the land in June, many of us nervously held our breath.

Ahwatukee letter: A time to do nothing
Posted: November 16, 2015

Congress just announced the 2016 114th Congressional Calendar. Now there is “NOTHING” new to see here. It seems that Congress, best known for its “DO NOTHING,” is ready and willing to give us (American voters) even more of “DO NOTHING.” Seems they have decided that in 2016 they plan to be in session (that’s political for work) 110 days! That’s right 110 days, less than four months.

Ahwatukee letter: Don’t forget to fund universities
Posted: November 16, 2015

I hear that the governor has called our legislators back for a special session to deal with education funding. As our economic situation has changed for the better since the budget was passed early this year, the special session seems reasonable. I’ve read nothing yet that indicates they will look into the big cuts made in that budget to our state universities.

Ahwatukee letter: Keep it away from S. Mountain
Posted: November 15, 2015

South Mountain - they are trying to cut it in half to make a freeway go across it. We should stop the freeway; we do not want a road to go across South Mountain.

Letter to the editor: Government, food don’t mix
Posted: November 12, 2015

I sure would sure like to know what Armando Reed recommends as a “tastier plant-based alternative” to a nice slab of prime rib along with a baked potato slathered in butter.

Letter to the editor: Volunteers made it happen
Posted: November 11, 2015

Across Arizona voters said, “Yes! Support Our Schools.” School bond and override measures have passed with overwhelming support. Schools will have funds for bare minimum needs like desk repairs and technology. The voters of our community support it. Thank you!

Letter to the editor: Our government will bring another depression
Posted: November 11, 2015

Our government and the Federal Reserve have been following a plan which allows a short-term gain for long-term pain. They have done two things: (1) Lowered the inter-bank interest rate to .25 percent, which floods the country with liquidity, and (2) have proceeded to increase our government debt (over $18 trillion).

Letter to the editor: Meat does cause cancer
Posted: November 01, 2015

Thank you to the World Health Organization for having the courage to speak truth to power: Meat, like cigarettes and asbestos, does cause cancer! No U.S. health agency would ever say this for fear of losing Congressional funding.
