Peaches to the Colorado River Indian Tribes for finally starting repairs and rebuilding on Airport Road. This road is a pain for sure, but it’s also a detriment to economic development. Imagine someone interested in investing in the community and flying in to check it out. Almost the first thing they’ll experience will be that road from the airport to Riverside Drive. What would you think if that was your first impression of Parker? As the saying goes, you never get a second chance to make a first impression.
Peaches to Parker Police Officer Raymond Gomez. He received two awards at the Parker Town Council meeting Aug. 6. We appreciate the efforts of Officer Gomez, as well as those of all law enforcement officers and first responders.
Peaches to the deli at Food City. Good take-out meals at reasonable prices. I love their chicken tenders.
Pits to all cats and other pets who pester their owners from 2 to 4 a.m. for food or a petting session.
Peaches to everyone who made the Back to School Bash such a success. It’s great to see so many people in our community care about our kids.
Peaches to the memory of Hasting’s in Lake Havasu City. I miss all the books and the videos.
Pits to all the people who have nothing better to do than gripe about what a terrible place Parker and La Paz County are. I swear that if some of these people had nothing to gripe about, they’d gripe about having nothing to gripe about.
Peaches to those off-roaders and others who work to keep the off-road trails in the area clean by removing litter and trash. The off-road community needs people like this to counter the relative handful of jerks who trash our beautiful desert.
Peaches to the BlueWater Cinemas for having an outstanding theater. Watching a movie there is always a pleasant experience. Your popcorn is fantastic!
Pits to Hollywood for producing so few movies I want to see that I rarely visit the BlueWater Cinemas.
