Peaches & Pits

Peaches to the Parker Broncs football team for winning in the first round of the state 2A playoffs. We’ve got another home playoff game this Friday at 7 p.m. Practice diligently, gentlemen. From here on out, the games will get progressively more difficult.

Pits to the Arizona Interscholastic Association. You can only purchase tickets for the playoff games with a smart phone, and you have to have your smart phone with you and have the tickets on the smart phone so they can verify them at the gate. I suspect they don’t care there are people who don’t have smart phones. Get with the times, you backwards people, or be gone!

Pits to everyone at the Parker Broncs games who wasn’t wearing a face mask. C’mon, folks! We don’t want to be told we can’t use the football field again.

Peaches to all the veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces. We wouldn’t enjoy our freedoms today if it weren’t for you. Thank you!


Peaches to having the judgement bonds in the Yakima case paid off. This means a small drop in the total sales tax we pay, as well as a major expense off the back of the county. Now, let’s get the general fund in order.

Peaches to everyone who organized, sponsored or participated in Parker’s Trunk or Treat. That was a lot of fun and it looks like everyone had a good time.


Peaches to everyone who organized, sponsored or participated in Red Ribbon Week. It was all for a great cause:  steering young people away from drugs and violence.

Peaches to the Southern California Speedboat Club and RPM Racing Enterprises for keeping their boat races going, even if they had to move them to a new venue because they couldn’t use the BlueWater Resort & Casino. I think La Paz County Park is a great venue for these races.


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.
