If Dawn Rowe has been ordered to step down from her duties as Supervisor, officially or not, why was she even at the event? Hmmm? Indeed, NO on Rowe. Also agree that this read more like a press release. Both the HDS and The Desert Trail wouldn’t know a to report on a impactful, hard hitti…

Indeed there.was a foul stench in the air about how the BOS went about the appointment of Dawn Rowe. Rowe ought to step down immediately. If she’s elected, then there’s no question about her authenticity as a supervisor. For now, everything she does ought to be scrutinized along with the …

Mark Simmons commented on Fixing the country’s homeless crisis

While I agree that homeless is a problem, the author of this letter seems more worried about his wallet than the problem at hand. He also neglects to cite any empirical data or stats to back up his claims. It also seems to me that rather than addressing the problem or lending a hand, the …

And the beat goes on. La dee da...... The “Build it and They Will Come” mentality will never cease in this community. Instead spending money on much needed infrastructure, our council reps seem intent on continually spending money on a bridge to Nowhere’s-Ville.

And, that’s your business how?? Who cares? I don’t. Besides, I think they were separated at the time. I just love it when others on here judge other people. Remove the plank from your own eye before examining the speck in other peoples eyes. I live by one simple creed and that is live and…

Mojavemaniac, I am truly sorry for your loss! Being that I’m not a religious person, I loved the tribute to your dearly departed friend. I look forward to the opening. May her memory and legacy live on through friends like you!

Blayd, that comment was NOT directed at you. Geez, I gotta be better at proofreading before I hit the post comment button. My bad! M-

I always appreciate your comments Blayd. I’ve seen so many changes in this area over the past 33 years. I was a relatively young man when I moved to these here parts. I too, was an arrogant LA type. Now swiftly approaching old age, some may say I’m just an old arrogant, opinionated local …

FYI Che baby, I came here for a job in ‘86. I was the sports editor for this very publication for more than four years. Long story short, I was only going to be here for a few years, but I met my wife, fell in love, bought a house, raised a family and have made YV my home. You’re right I …
