    Talking about attacks on your opponent, I guess Ms. Grimes did not receive Nancy Young Wright’s contrast mailer against Ally Miller that went out the week of September 24. This attack mailer went to Republican households falsely attacking Ally Miller.

    You guys below are in "la la" land. If Franzi and Nintzel are your sources of "truth" then you need to start working on developing an independent thinking process. Jim, Emil, want to make a few easy bucks. send these guys a letter demanding the $1,000 they owe. I'm sure they will beleive you and pay up.

    Ms. Grimes raises very valid concerns about Ms. Miller's credibility. Ms. Miller attacks Ms. Wright for the good work she did at Amphi to expose corruption. In previous elections supporters of Ms. Miller made similar claims which were refuted by the Explorer. In Emil Franzi's column in oct. 2010, he wrote: " a letter published in this paper last week (responded to elsewhere) insanely attacked Democrat State Rep. Nancy Young Wright and completely misrepresented her actions on the Amphi School Board. She was the main player in cleaning that corrupt board up."
    Ms. Miller's attacks on Ms. Wright for exposing corruption and cleaning it up are very troubling. It seems Ms Miller really condones corruption or at a minimum has a lack of credibility. And her campaign issues under investigation by the Secrtary of State raise further questions of Ms Miller's credibility. Add to that Ms. Millers' false claims during the primary why would any one vote for Miller?

    Nancy Young Wright's and others work to clean up Amphi and restore fiscal responsibility are well documented.
    Wright also been endorsed by many Republicans for working across the aisle to solve problems. We need a problem solver like her.

    Althea, the charge of "millions being misspent" was debunked by Jim Nintzel of the Tucson Weekly. Besides the burden of proving the allegation of misspent money should be on the person making the allegation (i.e., Ally Miller). Finally, I find it strange that you're demanding neutrality in an opinion piece. Opinion pieces are supposed to express a point of view (i.e., an opinion). That is what journalism is all about.

    Dear Thelma,
    It appears you are big on spreading rumors and accusations but not forcoming with facts or details to backup your writing. Could you please print those facts or withdraw your comments in this story. For example where are your facts to support your statement that millions was not misspent? Are readers to accept that you are the authority on this issue? Have you traced the money over the last decade yourself?
    If I am wrong then prove it! Your bias in this article is obvious. What about writing something that is neutral and fair to both candidates! That is what jounalism should be about.
