As one that has already experienced the problem, I would hope everyone checks around for prices being charged for all of their medications. As they do differ depending on the medication.
Some pharmacies in our area charge much more than they should, according to my paperwork. There is at least $2-$3 difference sometimes. As prices go up
Evolution makes no sense to me and if Darwin didn’t believe it, why should I? Darwin came up with it for the money and the blind masses bought into it. There is no other explanation for us being here except through Creation. There is too much evidence to even entertain the thought of evolution. As far as how old the universe is, only three
Based on local letters to your paper, I am going to write a book. The working title will be “ Everything I need to know I learned in Sunday School and That’s All You Need To Know Too.”
Well, last week added more misery to the misery. They did a real nice slurry coat to Foothills Boulevard. It is the kind of good work that should have occurred on the frontage roads.I guess the businesses on Foothills rank higher on the list then those on the Frontage Road. I did see the water truck wash the sand again th
I see that our once libertarian paper has yet again written placidly about the ever-growing police state (even implicitly supporting the use of drones to spy on private citizens), which makes Orwell seem ever more prescient. There was nary a reference to the 4th, 10th, or 14th amendments. Must all of those be perpetually sacrificed to the false
I just wanted to point something out, in hopes that businesses here in Yuma will read this. And I do mean from major department stores to grocery stores and so on. To me as an AMERICAN, it is as I put it.I was born in the United States, I am not Mexican American, I am not Hispanic. Even though I am fluently bilingual, I was still bor
First I want to make clear that I am truly saddened by news of another good citizen being killed in what seems to be a senseless “accident” on our streets and highways. The services being held in his honor are no doubt deserved, and are hardly enough thanks for his years of service and ultimate sacrifice.That said, I am a
At some point this year, either the Federal Reserve or Congress, or even the president of the United States, is going to have to tell the American public what is going on. The American news media has been muzzled about what is happening to our currency. The printing presses are still going full stroke and we are awash in dollars. The stock marke
I was raised in public schools being taught that people came from the deep blue. That by some anachronistic timetable and natural favor, we were led on a path to intelligence. We were told that there were data and data of empirical proof that these things happened.The truth is, there is not one book in the world that can show or cata
Hypothetical question regarding the Sen. Shooter fiasco.Let's substitute the surname Shooter with Flores (Fuentes, Hernandez, Munoz, Moreno, Mendoza, you get the idea) and change the occupation from state senator to field worker. Now the question: Do you believe that after accosting a teacher in a charter school such a pe
Mr. Mayor, the public display of your “my way or the highway” leadership approach has failed. Your management of your travel budget, as shown by your request to reallocate funds budgeted for other Yuma City Council members, shows your inability to prioritize your duties within budget restraints. Your failure to recognize that managin
Cover-ups, more cover-ups — Benghazi, this Boston thing stink to the high heavens. The immigration fiasco and its foot-dragging by both parties and the covert passage of that health plan and take over of 1/6th of the economy is not a coincidence. It’s an attempt by the progressives (far left Democrats) to destroy capitalism, reduce A
Let’s set things straight. First of all, I am a snowbird.
After reading a few letters blaming the snowbirds for driving slow in the passing lane, I decided to take a survey.
During several trips between Foothills Boulevard and Algodones turnoff, this is what I found:
Arizona plates - 142
I am in a state of confusion. The last time I checked, the banks were paying me a half percent for my savings account.
Now I just read a few weeks ago where the CEO of Wells Fargo was awarded $19.3 million. He was one of the highest-paid CEOs in the U.S. Stumpf’s total pay in 2012 included $2.8 million in salary, stock awa
Last fall when we came back, we could not open our windows at night due to the nasty, foul smell in the air coming from the pumping station from Far West Water not too far away.
When more winter visitors returned, the odor seemed to magically disappear.
I believe 156 percent increase in our sewer bills is not th
I long suspected that President Obama’s appointment as an adjunct professor of Constitution was a sham, a staging prop for his political ambitions. Now I am convinced. His commencement speech at Ohio State is definite evidence of the fact that he does not understand — and perhaps has never read — anything dealing with the found
The editorial on May 9 criticizing the Legislature for not being willing to expand our Medicaid program seems to overlook some of the hidden features in Obamacare. Why are so many Republican governors not willing to sign on to expanded Medicaid? The reason is they actually read the entire bill and all its specific clauses. From what I understand
This reminds me of the operating intelligence of the California dunes. Two years ago they wanted volunteers to help clean the dunes. My friend and I both have 4x4 big ATVs. His is a 700 Grizzly, and mine is a 1000 Can Am. They are the ideal ATVs for cleaning the dunes because we both have 5x8 trailers we pull behind them.
Now that most “snowbirds” are back home, we can't blame them for our horrible traffic and driving habits. Our locals don't seem to know how to use turn signals, they also tailgate, cannot obey the speed limit and use their cellphones way too much.I have driven in Europe, where I thought they drove like idiots, but Yuma is
I recently overheard a young lad criticizing President Truman for having used the atomic bomb during World War II (a toy compared to today's bomb).I didn't comment, but I was on Guam at the time, scheduled to invade Japan when President Truman made the decision to boom, end the war!The young lad who was expressing his con
Open the newspaper. Turn on the radio. Check your online news sites. Switch on the television. What do you see? Bad news! I am tired of reading the tragedies. I don't know how much more my heart can break for our broken world! What is the answer? Why can't we bring up God? Is he too politically incorrect? What has politic
Once again, the state of California fails to notice the elephant in the room. Visitor attendance has been down at the sand dunes because the economy is bad, gas prices are ridiculous, and their fees are not helping the situation. It is no surprise to me that California's solution to this problem is to raise their fees for dune permits. If Califo
Well now that you guys have fixed North Frontage Road between Avenue 9E and Avenue 9 1/2E and Avenue 10E and Fortuna Road, how about fixing the holes in the road between Avenue 9 1/2E and Avenue 10E? These holes have been in that stretch of the road for months. They were there when they repaired the other two sections of road but I guess nobody
I wonder why, when the people are told to tighten their belts and cut back, some laid off and some get hours cut back, that we are told by our county leaders that the county manager needs a pay raise. I have often asked myself just why do we need a county manager or city manager? We elect county supervisors, and city councilmen/women who for man
Have you noticed the number of politicians who are jumping ship (retiring)? There's a train wreck down the line and these guys don't want to be identified as principals in that derailment. Several years ago in an article I submitted to the opinion section of the Yuma Sun, I wrote that both parties were guilty of stalemate, greed and avarice and
