Leaders needed who can find a different way past obstacles
For years, I have been hearing Congress talk about the technical, more efficient ways we can secure our southern border.
We hear about the antiquated abilities at our legal ports of entry. I just have one question. Why are we still just talking about it? There seems to be no acceptable reason for our Congress to have identified a problem, but do nothing to fix it.
Their job is to keep American safe, not just talk about it. We have elected leaders in Congress who like to pontificate on why something can’t be done.
We seem to be slowly recognizing that we need leaders who can find a way to go around, over or through an obstacle. Hmmm, it sounds a bit like President Trump, doesn’t it?
Was a mountain trail simply expressing its political views?
It’s usually easy for me to spot the conservative boogeyman in E.J. Montini’s Sunday column, but his Feb. 10 column had me at a loss.
My guess is that the North Mountain Trail, which sent him tumbling, is a registered Republican.
A gift that wants to give if only the Republicans could receive it
Congresswoman Alexandria OcasioCortez is a gift to the Republican Party. Too bad the Republicans don’t have enough intestinal fortitude or strategic planning to take advantage of the gift.
A question for New Yorkers who expanded reproductive choice

A gloomy picture of the state of racial relations in America
Regarding Elvia Diaz’ column “Why we need a month to laud minorities”: She typically misses several of her points by omission of facts or lack of statistical support.
For example, she implies Barack Obama’s presidency gave us peace and unity; conveniently omitting the fact that under his administration we had more riots, looting and destruction known in recent history.
She declines to give any examples in which “... minority contributions are often ignored.”
As for women not being paid the same as men for the same work, that is true, but the current laws against these injustices provide relief to women through the courts, including back pay and other relief.
I am an independent with no party affiliation or belief in any extreme ideology.
Ms. Diaz portrays, as the left often does, a gloomy picture of current events without disclosing all of the facts.
A chance to show how much we appreciate our great outdoors
From the cascading waters of the Colorado River rushing though the depths of the Grand Canyon to the snow capped San Francisco Peaks, we are blessed with a treasure trove of public lands.
Arizona’s public lands include parks, monuments, preserves, national forests, rangelands, wildlife refuges and wilderness areas. These lands enrich the state’s quality of life and provide countless benefits to residents and visitors by supporting a wide range of activities, from recreational pursuits to balanced natural resource development.
HB 2271, sponsored by Rep. Tim Dunn and other lawmakers, designates the first Saturday of April, as Public Lands day.
Arizona Public Lands day will provide an opportunity to celebrate the incredible public lands in our state and to get people outdoor helping with cleanup efforts and other conservation projects.
Supporting Arizona’s public lands is non partisan, this bill should be passed by our Legislature and signed by the governor. Taking one day a year to celebrate public lands will benefit us all and help ensure that future generations enjoy our state’s public lands.
Contact your legislator and let them know you support Arizona Public Lands day.
