To the Editor: I am writing this letter in support of Joe Klinger the artist residing and creating public art across from Bisbee’s City Park on Brewery Gulch in Old Bisbee. It is my understanding that Joe is currently being threatened with eviction from the premises and I want to express my strong disfavor of this possibility. As an employee of the Old Bisbee Ghost Tours for the past five years, I have led my guests past Joe’s...

To the Editor: The House of Representatives is likely to vote this week to cut food assistance by $40 billion over 10 years — a cut that would threaten an adequate food supply for up to six million Americans. And while the $40 billion cut would impact a diverse range of people (including veterans), it would disproportionately hurt children, who make up almost half of SNAP recipients. Congress needs to reevaluate its priorities....

To the Editor: We cannot believe that a year has already come and gone since we lost our beloved Husband, Father, Brother, Son, Pop and Sheriff, Larry Dever. There is not a day that passes that our hearts don’t hurt since he has been gone. We still ache to hear the sound of his boots walking through the door and miss seeing that white hat, starched Wranglers and Cinch shirt. During tough times, we long to hear his calm, comforting...

Consumer video is popular with all ages these days. Anyone can record video using everything from a smartphone to a professional high-definition camcorder. Even media outlets such as CNN, will use video recorded using a smartphone for news segments.  If you are interested in getting your feet wet with taking video, two questions need to be answered before getting started: How big of a camcorder do you want to carry and how much do you...

I’ve never been much of a science guy. Even the Mr. Wizard’s World stunts on Breaking Bad are enough to bedazzle my little brain. But like many of us in the 21st Century, I live inside my phone. And so while texting one-handed the other day, it slipped out and fell to the hot, hard ground. The case surrounding it broke into two easily re-assembled pieces, and my immediate thought, was: what a piece of junk. I can’t believe I...

The Sierra Vista Herald has been running an extensive series of Mallard Fillmore comic strips in which “Mallard” touts the merits of home schooling over public schooling. Home schooling cannot replace public schools for the obvious reason that the “ideal” family where father is the sole breadwinner and mother stays at home and raises the kids represents only about ten percent of American households. And then there’s the possibility that the stay...

Maybe it was the end of the work week; maybe it was her complete success in steering the Legislature to expand Medicaid in the last session; or maybe Gov. Jan Brewer was  pleased with her recent trade trip to India. Whatever the reason, when the governor took the podium Friday to address a room full of newspaper people, she appeared to be in a good mood to deliver good news. The annual National Newspaper Convention took place last...

SIERRA VISTA — Four anti-war protesters showed up Monday afternoon to express their displeasure with the military situation in Syria. But even though only four took part — as of 3:30 p.m. — it was still a symbol of a number of people who are against doing anything which could harm the people of Syria, said organizer Mimi Ferraro. Diplomacy is the best solution, which was part of a sign she carried. “Violent culture...

I  was always a good student, always curious and, and believe it or not, very soft-spoken, shy and self-conscious until around age 35. That’s when my first husband told me I didn’t think right. My glib rejoinder was, “Don’t you really mean, I don’t think like you?”   Looking back, I now know when he admitted that was the case, it was the death knell for my marriage; I simply realized he was not nearly as smart as I had always...

 He that nothing questions, nothing learns. (Old Proverb) R emember I used this statement in my article Tuesday, Aug. 13, “Easy Ways to Get Kids Learning?”  Asking questions gets results, especially when we do not accept “I don’t know.” Are you using questions to find out about your children’s days in school?  Are they asking you questions?  Try this way as suggested by Kelly Ferguson, library aide in charge of...
