Peaches & Pits

Peaches to the McMullen Valley Chamber of Commerce and all their donors who made possible a fabulous fireworks show for the residents of Salome and Wenden.  Also to the TVIA for a hot dog and more dinner before the fireworks show. Thanks to all the volunteers.

Pits to La Paz County suing opioid manufacturers, including bribery of physicians. How many physicians have you arrested and prosecuted on bribery charges...exactly.

Pits to “MAD Magazine” ending publication of new material after their August edition. After 67 years, this publication had become one of the top satire and humor publications in the world. Maybe the problem was the world looked more like a MAD parody than “MAD” did. So long, Alfred E. Neumann. We’re going to do some worrying with you gone.

Peaches to all the great writers and artists “MAD” has had over the years, the “Usual Gang of Idiots.”

Peaches to everyone who participated in the flog tournament. They reminded us of what having fun is all about.

We want to know: who do you think deserves a peach? How about a pit? Send your ideas to the Parker Pioneer, P.O. Box 3365, Parker, AZ 85344. You can also send them to
