To the Editor: Sheriff Dever — when he first made Sheriff, I thought, oh, oh, another one of the St. David boys. He will be just like Jimmy. But after half way through his first term, was I ever wrong. To some he was like a god, to most he was one heck of a hero. To me he was the best we have ever had in Cochise County. But everything that happened to him in the last few months before he left us, he was a human being after all...

To the Editor: It’s a penny. Proposition 204 asks for a penny to provide a stable funding source for our schools — one that the legislature can’t siphon or cut. It’s not a new penny, it’s the same penny you’ve been paying since voters overwhelmingly approve the sales tax for education in 2010. The anti-education commercial that’s running on TV decries this education investment as “...

Commentary by Dick Atkinson It has been universally accepted that a large measure of success or failure in golf lies in one’s mental approach to the game.  That six-inch space between the ears is as important as anything in one’s golf bag.  A negative thought, prior to the swing, can adversely influence physical action, whereas a positive thought will usually produce favorable results.  It is proven scientific...

It’s a thankless job.
