I really enjoyed your Donation Station article. I’ve lived in Gold Canyon from 1987 to 1992 and 2006-to present. I’ve actually approached dumpers a few years ago and afterwards I wrote a letter to the AJ News about this topic and the Pinal County resources available with phone #’s and web ad… Read more g

I just received a copy of representative Gosar's latest press release decrying the "massive land grab and energy sabotage" of HR 1373 and stating that democrats were putting the interests of well-funded environmental extremists above the interests of the American people. HR 1373 is also know… Read more g

I recently read the article about the Tonto National Forest resuming control of the firefighting operations of the Woodbury Fire. I am glad to see so much progress in the containment of the fire. We all love this desert that we live in and hate to see it set ablaze. People need to be more ca… Read more g

Well, once again we have a huge traffic jam with traffic back up for miles due to an accident on the 60 near Gold Canyon. Why? Because there is no alternative route in or out of the area. When is ADOT going to wise up and realize there should be traffic alternatives in case of emergencies. A…

I find it ironic that every year a story appears usually front page, about monsoon season. This year it is called “And Then the Rains Came.” In that story it talks about the need for property owners to make sure all areas on their property are clear of debris. In other words it is important …

Everything seems political these days, and with good reason. There’s a lot of partisanship and it seems as if there’s no end in sight.

As a retired senior living on a fixed income, I am so grateful for Medicare; however, people need to know that this safety net is great but doesn’t always cover everything. Many people have found that after an emergency room or urgent care visit, they are startled when months later they rece…

I would like to give kudos to our Apache Junction Library and the staff that manage it. It is well organized and well stocked with books, CDs and DVS and computers. I have always found the staff helpful when I need to find something. The staff deserves a big pat on the back.

“It was not until the slave-holders (the job-creators of their day) withdrew from the U.S. Congress that our country was able to move forward economically with widespread development of the technologies developed before the Civil War. The telegraph had been invented and demonstrated in 1844,…

A few friends of mine recently told another friend and me about a really good restaurant that had recently reopened under a new name and ownership. It’s the Gold Stallion Restaurant on Kings Ranch Road in Gold Canyon; used to be the old Wahoo Restaurant. So, on a whim, my friend and I went f…

Yesterday, I filled two large boxes and a paper bag of items for Big Brothers-Big Sisters. Thinking I may not get up in time to put them on the curb by 7:00, I set them out last night. Well, they were already gone early this morning. What low-life would steal these boxes that were meant for …

A couple of letters in the newspaper have really interested me in regards of the AJ Jiffy Lube. In the fall of 2007 was the first winter we spent here. We were snowbirds at that time. We had a 2002 Dodge Dakota pickup with a 4 cylinder engine. Oil cacpacity 4 qts. After a haircut in the near…

Really sad to see what is happening within our community over the Woodbury Fire. So much misunderstanding, miscommunication and mixed messages going around about donations.

The day I have to explain to a four year old boy that he should NOT lie, deny, blame others, call others names, or just be an ass in general like the president of this country was the day a piece of me died. I feel that as a man, it is my responsibility to teach him the things we ALL learned…

I have a question as to why there is such a shortage of right-turn-only lanes in Apache Junction? The 3 main north-south roads, Idaho, Ironwood and Meridian are the problems. Meridian is very bad since the opening of the interchange with US-60.

I found the ADOBE promotional article about the Route 60 bypass in the latest paper to be interesting. It certainly documents what ADOBE has been doing over the past 20 years to attempt to address the Route 60 bypass issue. I appreciate their efforts but with due respect, they seem to emphas…

I am writing to acknowledge two good Samaritans that helped me when I fell in front of the Apache Junction post office on May 13, 2019. The gentleman helped me to sit up and the lady, who also saw me fall, was giving me Kleenex for my mouth which was bleeding profusely. The gentleman then as…

Like many of us we’re finding ourselves as we get older looking out for and assisting our elderly parents. I was packing to leave town for a few days when my 77 year old mom said her car maintenance light was on. Normally I would have serviced her car myself but I had many last minute things…

It was just wonderful to read one of the deceased, much loved and admired, Ed Barker’s old columns. I miss his wit, knowledge and pure facts about our country and its people.
