To some, it may be just coffee, but not to the growers, or their customers. To them, it’s a miracle of across-the-border cooperation, one of the few great events directly linking American coffee drinkers with their Mexican coffee producers. This past week, that cooperative effort celebrated its 10th anniversary, a whole decade of exploring a positive means to make the international border more than a zone of tension, but one of joint...

 The whole concept of Ben Macintyre’s riveting account of Britain’s pre-D-Day ring of spies (double agents working for the Allies’ cause while simultaneously pretending to be serving the Nazis), is one eye-popping, mind-erupting, heart-thumping revelation. “Double Cross” is history at its enthralling best, crammed with intimate details of the operatives’ love lives, financial manipulations, and...

As has become custom, the Buena football team got out to a very fast start Friday night, then waned as the game went on, only to pull it out in the end in most swashbuckling fashion. And, as much as the Colts might want to beat themselves up for again failing to deliver that knockout blow, Friday night’s reversal of fortune had as much to do with Westwood playing an incredibly counter-intuitive game of possum as it did the Colts...

To the Editor: Some among us should never die young. Larry Dever made us all feel safer. He defended out border. He came to everyday citizens aid when there was need. He was a patriot and a hero among us. He was a great leader — ever so subtle yet strong. His smile was so warm as to disarming. The sheriff always knew what was best for Cochise County. He was never afraid to step forward and enter the political arena to fight for secure...

To the Editor: This election season, there will be a pretty cramped ballot. From president on down to Justice of the Peace, voters will be asked to make countless critical decisions for our national and local governments. Sometimes there is so much, voters can miss making their voice heard on important issues. There is one ballot measure that might go unnoticed that is very important to our schools, Prop 118. Prop 118 is a win-win...

To the Editor:  I have met Richared H. Carmona, a candidate for the U.S. Senate for Arizona. He is an intelligent and articulate man. We have seen very few political signs in his behalf. Therefore, I am going to quote part of a letter we received from him recently: “In one generation, I’ve been able to go from being a high-school dropout to become the 17th Surgeon General of the United States. My story is one that I...

To the Editor: Where has my HURF gone? Recently, the Herald/Review wrote an article asking legislative candidates to respond to how we will deal with our deteriorating roads in Southern Arizona and driving safety issues.  Our roads in Southern Arizona are getting worse by the day. As I go through various forums and meet with future constituents, people are very concerned that their needs of safe roads are not being...

To the Editor: How disappointing to see the Bisbee City Council proposing to enter again, this time by ordinance, the vicious arena of chemical danger versus public health. The alleged “safety of herbicides (the EPA itself assiduously avoids that slippery term in regard to weed killers)” is based, not on proved absence of adverse effects on people and the environment, but entirely on such totally political concepts as “...

To the Editor: It’s 11:40 p.m. Wednesday and I’m sitting here at the computer at a time I should be in bed. But I was in bed and couldn’t sleep because I kept thinking about last evening’s presidential debate. So I’ve gotten out of bed to try to purge my mind, set down on paper my thoughts before I read anything in tomorrow’s newspapers.  Over the course of the last few weeks during the run up...

And after more than 40 years of offering the residents of Sierra Vista and the surrounding towns a chance to bask in all things artsy, Art in the Park has become a local mainstay...

PHOENIX — A fight between a professional couple seeking to buy a house and a real estate agent could finally help define exactly when someone in Arizona can "sign” a document by e-mail.

But Judge Margaret Downie, writing for...

Wake...

The loving impression you have left on so many hearts becomes overwhelming as the tears cannot be held back. We hold our heads high, so proud that we knew you.  While our hearts break and ache that we can no longer be near you, I sit in silence and ask God why he had to take you.  There is soft voice, but not God’s voice I hear; it is your beautiful sweet voice as you take my hand and hold it to my heart, you softly say...

MORENCI — Tombstone’s bid to upset second-ranked and unbeaten Morenci couldn’t have started much better.

MESA — There’s the easy way, there’s the hard way, and then there’s the bizarre combination of both that’s the Buena Colt way. Buena jumped on top of Mesa Westwood 20-0 in the game’s first nine minutes, but in keeping with their M.O., wound up holding on for dear life down the stretch, in a 47-33 win that put the Colts in the driver’s seat for a state playoff berth. “We kind of slowed our...

SIERRA VISTA — The Sierra Vista Police Department is looking to remind motorists that the striped area between designated handicapped parking spots is not its own parking space.

SIERRA VISTA —  The killing of U.S. Border Patrol agent Nicholas Ivie was on Congressman Ron Barber’s mind Wednesday. After speaking with the Herald/Review, he was going to visit the Ivie family.

After 11 months of investigation by an aggressive county prosecutor and the Federal Bureau of Investigations, it appears Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne has avoided a worst case scenario in favor of questionable — but not illegal — handling of his campaign finances.   Monday Maricopa County prosecutor Bill Montgomery and FBI spokesman James Turgel accused Horne and Kathleen Winn of coordinating their efforts to funnel...

SIERRA VISTA —  Sequestration of military funds will harm the nation’s defense capabilities, two Democratic members of the U.S. House of Representatives Armed Services Committee said Thursday. “We shouldn’t put the gun to their heads,” said the ranking member of his party on the committee U.S. Rep. Adam Smith,  an eight term congressman who represents the State of Washington’s 9th Congressional...
