Quantcast

On Wednesday, you published a story from the Nogales International about the migrant families waiting to enter the United States at the DeConcini Port of Entry (“Asylum-seeking migrants camp outside port,” Page A10). It was quite a tear-jerker.

On a recent trip to the White Elephant to drop off a donation at around 7:30 a.m., I noticed the parking lot was already about a third occupied. Given the early hour, I suspected the majority of these vehicles belonged to volunteers. It seems to me that it would make sense to have the volunt…

Terrific spread by the Green Valley News! Our local Honor Flight organization is doing a great job for our veterans. Welcoming home our veterans is a heartwarming and memorable experience for anyone. Seeing the vets’ faces light up as they were welcomed home is quite an experience. On this H…

(Note: This letter was submitted by the Nogales Police Department on behalf of the wife of Officer Jesus Cordova, who was killed in the line of duty on April 27, 2018 at the age of 44.)

Rosemont/Hudbay Alert! The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality is revising its rules regarding Surface Water Quality. At issue are various aspects of Outstanding Arizona Waters (OAWs). A workgroup has produced multiple positions and recommendations, without reaching consensus, mostly…

Concerned about how the criminal justice system in the United States is in need of reform, I have recently been visiting local court rooms to learn first hand what is happening.

A Raynham, Massachusetts, reader of a New York newspaper recently wrote a letter to the editor which stated, “No matter how much you hate President Trump, he has done an outstanding job thus far in dealing with North Korea. Remember, this is a problem he inherited because no other president …

It is unfair to blame the White Elephant and police department for your parking ticket (“White Elephant parking,” May 6).

There are elements of the recent illegal teachers “strike” that many readers may not understand. In Arizona, the administrators of public schools would be within their rights to summarily discharge any teacher who chooses to be absent from their duties without permission, and then it would b…

I am writing in response to the May 6 letter, “Military Machine.”

It was with much sadness that I read the stories of cyclist Tim Breslin and Tom McDonald in the May 9 Green Valley news (“Why the Ride of Silence Matters,” Page A2). 

I object most strenuously to the scurrilous implication in the editorial cartoon of May 9.

After listening to the developer’s presentation on the new gas station and convenience/liquor store proposed for Tubac, I would like to offer the following comments:

Just a few words of thanks from a Navy veteran to all those businesses in and round Green Valley and the Tucson area that have recognized our service by extending discounts on goods and services.

I had to chuckle at Connie Griffin’s letter in Sunday’s newspaper (“White Elephant parking,” Page A6, May 6). So allow me a bit of tongue-in-cheek here when I say by choosing to park your car in the no-parking zone (which is clearly marked, so shame on you), you were depriving yourself of th…

Seriously? Age discrimination, inconvenient hours? (“White Elephant parking,” Page A6, May 6). Parking is available in the library overflow lot, and if you cannot walk that far have someone drop you off, and then go park.

Sunday’s issue had a complaint about disobeying the law while parking at the White Elephant (“White Elephant parking,” Page A6, May 6). Interesting because, due to many complaints, the fire line has been repainted a bright red and because the county invested money into providing additional (…

I chuckle as I’m writing this response to the editor, which I’ve never done before, because I believe he will have a field day deciding which responses to print to this hot topic near and dear to the hearts of most Green Valley residents. First of all, one of my all-time pet peeves in this w…

Would you support a teachers strike in Arizona?
