By Nancy BernardHerald/Review  Each year there is at least one stand-out star of the holiday shopping season, and it usually involves a screen of some sort. Looking through the ads this weekend, waiting to fall in love at each turn of the page, I realized I already had everything I needed, and that it was possible to have enough.

To the Editor: Apparently, there is a huge communication gap between what the citizens of Sierra Vista want in the way of sanitation services and what the city of Sierra Vista has dictated. This letter defends opinions of some city citizens who did not agree to give up one trash pickup per week in place of receiving one recycle pickup per week. As I recall, my contract with the city for sanitation pickup stipulated two trash days per...
