On Sunday, March 17, my wife and I witnessed a horrific accident at the intersection of Broadway and Houghton. We were disappointed that this was not reported in the Star the next day. This was the third major accident we have seen or driven past in the last few months. Perhaps if there were…

Tim Steller’s article on McSally was insightful, but I Tim think left some important parts out. McSally hanging onto Trump’s coattails is a good thing for Democrats. With President Bone Spur's obsession with Sen. McCain “he's not a war hero, he's a war hero because he was captured” and his c…

Senator McSally has taken an oath to protect and follow the directives of the Constitution. I am deeply disappointed that she has broken her oath by supporting President Trump and his false emergency at the southern border.

A recent letter writer asks why is Sen. Eddie Farnsworth sitting in a position of power in our legislature in 2019? With all due respect, it's because we the people (at least the majority of people who voted in his district — an important distinction) have elected him time after time.

People all across San Diego are tripping over scooters! Don't people from San Diego walk with their eyes open? All this turmoil is nonsense. I remember when tandem tractor trailers were going to be allowed on the highways. The sky was going to fall. The roads were going to be destroyed. Pass…

Trump played a role in the heartbreaking slaughter of people at two religious gatherings, as cited in the manifesto by the killer. All too many will say that this despicable act was solely perpetrated by a deranged individual. While a part is true, this is not the first time a person has use…

The column on Sunday by Tim Steller about threats to our local waters was so very well done. He captured the dangers faced by our few rivers and creeks and the complex issues around both state and federal laws. Great job!

The article in the Star about a Tempe firm buying another marijuana producing company for a mere 850 million really slays me! Oh great! There are 13 new cultivating sites and manufacturing sites! Even worse, that combination (needs) "regulatory approval" to include vaporized steam products. …

I can't help but notice the similarities of both Adelita Grijalva and the Donald using similar techniques and tactics to cultivate their bases. The Donald throws all kinds of shiny objects to distract people from important national issues such as health care, infrastructure--etc. He'd rather…

Massacre of 50 Muslims praying in mosques is a horrific event. In the recent past the West has been tolerant to people of all religions. Once terrorism starts there is no end. I give an example. Pakistan, created in 1947, was an economically progressive country until 1970. Then a political l…

In his recent op-ed, Jonathan Hoffman equates conservative philosophy with “full-on Americanism” and the philosophy of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as un-American.

I think you could save yourself some time by keeping this kind of article and running it every year in the spring and fall. You'd have to update the year and the declining number of school graduates, but little else has changed. Even though there has been a promise of higher teacher pay, tha…

After the massacre at the Masid Al Noor mosque in Christchurch it is time to call perpetrators of such heinous acts by their true name, white power terrorists. Kathleen Belew, University of Chicago first identified them as the white power movement. The Internet allows them to link and share …

I am an 84-year-old “Yellow Dog Democrat” (look it up). As such I have always voted for the Democrat running for president. But, never before have I voted in an election for president more important then I will in 2020.
