Peaches & Pits

From You:

Pits to Supervisor Holly Irwin who blocked quarterly reports from the county’s Finance Department. Now we are in a dire situation and millions in the red. Remember this when your taxes rise exponentially and it is time to vote again.   

From Us:

Peaches to all mothers. This is a little late for Mothers’ Day, but it’s still timely.

Peaches to the Town of Parker having a summer swim program this year. We missed it last year. With the Colorado River nearby, the kids need a safe place to learn to swim.

Peaches to the Best Western Motel for allowing the summer swim program to use their pool.

Peaches to our county’s new jail commander, Lt. Michelle Norris. She’s the first woman to command the jail. We wish her all the best.


Peaches to all student athletes as the school sports season winds down. Hopefully, you learned plenty of lessons from sports and academics to help guide you through life.

Peaches to the people of Arizona and La Paz County for doing their part to get the coronavirus pandemic in check. Whether it be wearing a mask and social distancing and/or getting vaccinated, we have brought the number of new cases in the state to a low number. We had just one new case in the county last week.

Pits to Republicans who repeat former President Donald Trump’s debunked claims that the 2020 election was stolen. More and bigger pits to state and local GOP leaders who punish those Republicans who dare to say Trump actually lost the election.

Pits to whoever keeps moving that big rock in front of the apartments on Kofa Avenue next to the laundromat. Just how do you move it, anyway? It looks like you’re using a truck to drag it.
