  • Wouldn’t it be great if the two groups performing Shakespeare in Prescott would acknowledge the Shakespeare works were written by Edward Devere, Earl of Oxford? This has been proven.

  • The days of commitment to marriage is long gone. Today, people are so confused about which side they want to be on, that they cannot commit.

  • Voter IDs, what is the problem? Citizens have to use IDs for everything! No one is being stopped from voting if they are legally a citizen. Illegals have NO business voting! Legal citizens have to carry an ID.

  • Voter registration made easier for who, the illegals! Now proof of citizenship is not required to vote in federal elections. All illegals have to do is fill out a voter registration form and we are supposed to trust them?

  • To this day I don’t understand how people can “pack in” full cans of beer to nice places, but somehow can’t “pack out” their empties. Those empties weigh much less folks! Clean up your mess!

  • Get the government out of the education business. Education is the job of parents, individually and/or teaming up together.

  • Since this is the “God and Country!” faux piety/patriotism ad nauseum capital of the universe, if Argus Hamilton ever failed to open his syndicated comedy column with “God Bless America,” would The Daily Courier drop him?

  • Road construction on Williamson Valley Road is much appreciated ... should have been done years ago. However, a roundabout at Outer Loop & Williamson Valley Road would save lives and avoid serious accidents.  Please consider!

  • When discarding a beverage with liquids still remaining, why not pour the remainder into a landscape area? Replenish the aquifer.

  • We enjoyed Nancy Hutson’s story about people reconnecting over board games. Many of us would benefit from putting away our phones and having real social interactions around a game table or a dinner table.

  • I would really like to know why we have airplanes flying over us day and night, spraying toxic dust that coats everything. Our food, water, cars, inside our homes, etc. It is a real menace!

  • Seems to me that many Prescott tradesmen are competing in the Noisiest Truck contest. I think we’ve had a couple of the finalists on our circle this year. Just sayin’.

  • Having a lawn in Arizona is past stupid. We’re challenged with water/population now. If you want a lawn, move to the Midwest! How about some nice water-friendly landscaping?

  • The President and now the NFL owners insist on a show of “Patriotism” during the National Anthem. Compulsory patriotism is nothing more than propaganda.

  • The front page of the Courier (June 4) was extremely effective and thought provoking. We do not often think of the dangers journalists are faced with on a day-to-day basis, providing thought provoking information to the masses.

  • Raves to the Prescott Idol contestants and sponsors. You bring the old courthouse plaza to life! Rants to the lady saving over a dozen chair spaces “for people who are coming later.”

  • Am I the only restaurant patron who has to wear winter clothing in order to dine out? I appreciate the hard-working servers but it is difficult to enjoy my meal when the temperature is frigid.

  • Reading “Rants and Raves,” I often want to ask the writer, “How long has this been nagging at you?” A “dust creator in downtown Prescott Valley”? What dust creator? Where is downtown Prescott Valley? Please, step away from the keyboard.

  • In the old days, cars pulling even rented trailers had dragging chains. I cannot recall the last time I witnessed a dragging chain. Unless a dragging chain be witnessed to starting a roadside fire, a cigarette is likely the cause.
