Peaches & Pits

From you:

Pits to the CRIT Tribal Council. PPP fed funds $3 to $5 million. Every casino opened except CRIT, and they never tried. Now laying off 65 percent of all staff and furloughs to the rest. Numbers are from inverted sources, but close. Please sell it to San Manuel tribe. They know how to run a casino.

From us:

Peaches to all the candidates who ran for public office in the primary election. It’s not easy to run for public office. It’s even tougher serving in public office.

Pits to professional basketball, both the NBA and the WNBA. The overdose of politics has taken all the fun out of watching games.

Peaches to the La Paz County Health Department and all those in the front lines of the efforts against the coronavirus pandemic. You have put in a lot of long hours and a lot of work. Your efforts are appreciated.

Peaches to the Arizona Diamondbacks, who won back-to-back games against the Houston Astros, including one where they scored 14 runs. This is more of what we were expecting this season. Let’s hope they can keep it up.

Pits to President Donald Trump for suggesting on Twitter the November election be delayed. Sure, it was just a suggestion. Still, in his position, and with many willing to pounce on anything he says, he should be far more careful about what he says. I’ve long felt he should shut down his Twitter account. In his public appearances, the biggest thing he needs to worry about is what’s between his nose and his chin.

Peaches to all students, parents, educators and staff. There are so many “unknowns” with the new school year. All we can say for certain is it’s going to be a bumpy ride. They need all the support we can give them.

Pits to packages from China arriving in the mail that contain unsolicited seeds. The Arizona Department of Agriculture said anyone who receives such a package should immediately send or drop off the package to their Plant Services Division at 1688 W. Adams, Phoenix, Ariz. 85007. Call 602-542-0992 for information.
