Peaches & Pits

Peaches to everyone who had to work on Christmas Day. I’m thinking not only of first responders, but also those businesses that stayed open to meet the needs of their customers. You are all appreciated.

Peaches to everyone who made a positive contribution in 2021. It was a rough year, but there were still positive things that happened. Given all the negative things, the positive things were also very much appreciated.

Peaches to the New Year, 2022. Let’s all work to make it better than the last two years have been.

Pits to misinformation and disinformation. There’s so much of it out there, no wonder we’re so divided as a nation and many Americans don’t know what to believe anymore. Who do you believe when it seems like everyone is willing to lie to you if it serves their purposes? That’s a good question.

Peaches to La Paz County. It looks like they may finally be getting their finances in order. As County Administrator Megan Spielman said, they’re on track, and they need to stay on track.

Pits to the coronavirus. This nasty little bug is determined to be a pain. I wonder if it was something created to drive us all crazy. Maybe we should call it the Gerald virus after the mean, spoiled little brat who was the villain on the old “Wallace & Ladmo” TV show.

Who do you think deserves a peach? How about a pit? Send your ideas, in 40 words or less to the Parker Pioneer at You can also send them by mail to Parker Pioneer, P.O. Box 3365, Parker, Ariz. 85344.
