Column: Murders, mercy and unequal justice
I've written too many murder stories to count in my career. I've interviewed too many victims' relatives and I've heard too many excuses for why people do the evil they do.

Column: Handicap parking cheaters among us
I received an interesting email a few days ago from a very nice woman, Carol Costa, who explained a concern she had.

Hobby Lobby: Only the lawyers are happy
For the sake of argument, let's say one day I'm shopping at my favorite specialty store, Snobby Hobby, and I hit it off with one of the managers.

Guest Column: I am proud of Kingman's police
Recently there has been criticism for the acquisition of a Mine Resistant Ambush Protected vehicle by the Kingman Police Department.

Guest Column: Sharing health costs does us good
Society - what is it? The dictionary defines it as a group of people joined together because of some interest in common.

Guest Column: Taliban release shows Obama's plan
I read the Panama City News Herald diatribe in the Miner ["Don't forget: Bergdahl is a soldier," June 9].

Guest Column: Meriam Ibraham forgotten victim in war on women
I have watched the hypocrisy in Washington, D.C., over the past few weeks as first lady Michelle Obama comes out with her "Bring our girls home" sign concerning the 300 or so school girls who were kidnapped by the ruthless Boko Haram group in Nigeria.

Guest Column: Tale of ill health fell on deaf ears at animal shelter
I was hospitalized after having a stroke on Memorial Day. After spending 10 days in KRMC, I learned that my and my son's dogs were missing.

Guest Column: Help is available for genetic, serious liver condition
What is hemochromatosis? It is a genetic blood disorder that causes the liver to hold iron and causes cellular damage.

Column: Hello, Kingman! Now get out of my car
It was a 2,600-mile drive from my former home in Milford, Conn. (about 50 miles up the coast from New York City) to my new home, Kingman. Since arriving last week, I can not count the number of times I have been asked, "Why did you move here??"

Column: A final, worthy tribute for a dedicated public servant
Back when Aibing Guo was a reporter here and big news was happening in Colorado City and Hildale, the Miner sent our Chinese journalist up to the FLDS stronghold to get a sense of the community.

Guest column: Whatever happened to water in perpetuity?
Are aquifers really personal property? Just because you have a well doesn't make the aquifer which you withdraw water from (or contaminate) your right to own. Does it?

Sunday, June 8, 2014

Guest Column: Founding Fathers, Bible have the answers
As I was looking at the nightly news last night, I came upon a very disturbing news conference in which Mr. Richard Martinez (the father of one of the Santa Barbara shooting victims) made a very short and to the point statement which placed the blame on politicians and the NRA for his sons senseless death. At the end he asked, "When will this insanity stop?"

Sunday, June 1, 2014

Column: Net lore had everything but context
Last week, a letter recycled an interesting bit of net lore that tried to paint Hillary Clinton as a full-fledged communist ready to use the federal government to redistribute wealth - all for "the greater good."

Plenty of shared blame in loss of airline service
Once again Kingman is losing a valuable resource. Kingman's Essential Air Service subsidy will end.

Sunday, May 25, 2014

Kingman Column: Big government equals big mistakes
Here it is, Memorial Day Weekend, and what better time to think about absent comrades - the soldiers, sailors and Marines who survived combat but didn't live long enough to make that appointment with the V.A.

Sunday, May 25, 2014

Column: Bullies vs. cookies: The bullies lose
My father gave me a lifetime's worth of great advice. He set fine examples for me in both words and actions, but he failed miserably when it came to bullies and how to deal with them when I was in elementary school in the 1960s.

Guest Column: Now is the time to demand fixes to VA medical system
There has been a great deal stated concerning the problems at VAMC-Phoenix, and as has been pointed out a number of times these issues are not simply isolated to the Phoenix VA Center.

Sunday, May 18, 2014

Guest Column: Manzanita marks 50 years of service to Kingman
While the building and staff have changed over the years, Manzanita Elementary School has always been regarded as one of Kingman's premier schools, earning numerous state-level accolades.

Guest Column: Route 66 festival gives Kingman a big opportunity
I am not writing as an official spokesman for the Route 66 International Festival, as a supporter for the organizers of that event, or to cast blame. Instead, I want to dispel rumors, provide assurance of the festival's viability and alleviate misunderstandings.

Column: Stranger danger: A close encounter
I'm generally not a big fan of canned press releases hawking books by authors I've never heard of living in far-away states.

Monday, May 12, 2014

Column: A feeling we've been let down
Some titles demand more of the people who hold them. We expect our parents, our teachers, our children's teachers, our leaders, our doctors and our clergy to somehow be perfect.

At or near the top of our list of People Who Must Not Let Us Down are law enforcement officers.

We expect them to never falter, much less fail. We require them to make the correct decision every time, regardless of the circumstances.

Column: New Internet rules up for review
In a new version of the Open Internet Rules from the Federal Communications Commission proposed on Thursday, a provision allowing Internet service providers to offer faster delivery of services for a fee has brought into question the FCC's stance on Net Neutrality.
Sunday, April 27, 2014

Column: Net Neutrality loses out in Comcast deal
Comcast has recently made a series of moves that have brought into question Net Neutrality rules, the role of the FCC and the business model of the Internet.

Column: Vegas teaches a water lesson
Despite widespread belief to the contrary, Mark Twain never said whiskey is for drinking and water is for fighting.
