Peaches & Pits

Peaches to all the women in business in Parker and La Paz County. We have our “Women in Business” section this week, and it shows how our local businesswomen have made this a better place for everyone.

Peaches to everyone who came by to show their support for Coach Rolland Hansen at the fundraising dinner Sept. 25 at Parker High.

Pits to all the lies and misrepresentations about the large number of Haitians at our border with Mexico. This all seems to confirm our politicians don’t really want to solve the problems at the border. They’re too busy making political hay from those problems.

Pits to moving the Parker Broncs’ football game last Friday to Antelope. It was supposed to be at home. This is turning out to be an incredible team. Their families and fans deserve a chance to watch them play.

Pits to whoever delivers the fountain cups to the Parker Circle K. Do you suppose you could bring more than one size at a time? Maybe I’m missing something here.

Peaches to cooler weather. I don’t have to say anything more.

Peaches to having some events for Native American Days this year, even if they are drive-through or virtual. That’s better than canceling everything.

Peaches to Gov. Doug Ducey. After Cyber Ninjas gave their report on their forensic audit, he declared the 2020 election was over. Thank you, Governor! Now, let’s see the legislature get back to running this state.
