Arizona’s faux audit of 2020 ballots fails to comply with the federal election records retention law, further undermining the integrity of the exercise with the possibility of illegality. This law, which has been on the books since May 4, 1960, requires election officials to “retain and preserve for a period of 22 months” all election […]

Later this year, America will mark the 20-year anniversary of its invasion of Afghanistan. Last week, President Joe Biden announced he will move to withdraw all U.S. forces from Afghanistan by mid-September. Even a cursory analysis of the human cost of this war – and the cost to the American…

“First one sheep jumped to its death. Then stunned Turkish shepherds, who had left the herd to graze while they had breakfast, watched as nearly 1,500 others followed, each leaping off the same cliff.”

One of the great things about living in the U.S. is that our city and county governments are required to keep their citizens informed about their actions. One of the ways they do this is through public notices — the informational notices that have been deemed to be of importance to local con…

In response to Ms. Breen's very respectful rebuttal of my column regarding stimulus checks, the point of my message applies equally across all levels of "the playing field." The whole problem with looking to the evenness of "the playing field" is it sets aside what one can change (personal b…

In this virus-ridden society when more of us are keeping closer to home and being inundated with politics, we would do well to consider a few facts without getting too sarcastic.

I appreciate Alek Miller’s concern for our fiscal behavior, and he makes some good points. However, his “In My View” column in the 4-7-21 Copper Era, concluding that the extra (stimulus) cash “flooding the system…won’t alleviate things” misses a key fact: we don’t live on an even playing field.

I hope each of you take the time to read our “Super Heroes of Graham and Greenlee counties” magazine, highlighting those who have helped build and sustain our wonderful communities. Now we want to hear from you about other, perhaps lesser-known folks in the community, who have influenced or …

If you’ve gotten to know me over the past few years, you and I have probably had “the talk.” No, I don’t mean the teenaged one; this conversation is way less comfortable. It’s about personal finance. What your situation is like. Where you’re going with your money. Where your money is going w…

We all should appreciate our local newspaper as the public forum it provides. That being said, in 200 words or less here is something for people to hear as we are going into this “Easter” season: Simply put, each one of us has three enemies — the devil, the world and ourselves — more than en…

Word has it that California is losing residents at a significant rate. “I/We just moved in from California” is heard more and more often these days. Most commonly, these emigrants settle in Texas, Oregon, Washington, Nevada, Colorado, Tennessee, and our fair land of Arizona. ...Well, I shoul…

In response to P. Mikelonis, the issue people have — rightfully — with John Young’s regular column has very little to do with his cringe-inducing rhetoric. It has everything to do with the fact he does not live remotely close to Greenlee County. If I moved to suburban Missouri yet continued …

Our U.S. Senator, Kyrsten Sinema, made headlines with her grand show of voting No on an addition to the stimulus bill to raise the minimum wage to $15/hour. Supporters and other Democrats expressed strong disdain at her. Who could imagine the spiritual successor to John “Maverick” McCain wou…

The truth is, here at Mt Graham Regional Medical Center, we could not have made it this far through the pandemic without our dedicated and hardworking staff at every level.
