The recent letter to the editor “Make Them Pay” (March 7), along with recent assertions on the local Let Oro Valley Excel blog, contained information about the El Conquistador Men’s Golf Association that was either totally incorrect, or a much-distorted representation of the facts.

It’s Best of the Northwest season here at Tucson Local Media, and I personally think that’s reason enough for my return to the editor’s note for 2018.

The first time I was asked my opinion on Prop. 454’s chances of passing last Tuesday’s ballot, it was early July. The unanimous showing of support from council, and the many talks with young athletes, their parents and coaches still hung heavily in my mind—and I told that person that I would…

I can’t believe that Tucson Local Media’s papers ignored the Arizona Department of Transportation’s public meetings on their “alternative routes” for an Interstate 11 highway from Wickenburg to Nogales. Meetings May 2 and 3 in Tucson and Marana brought out over 400 people who were mostly opp…

I am appalled and disgusted by Gov. Doug Ducey and our “so-called” Arizona legislature. I am a retired educator (35 years in Arizona public schools) and I am physically sick at how our “so-called legislators” treat our teachers. To give teachers a 1 percent, one-year bonus is a slap in the face.

The town of Oro Valley has a very important decision to make.  Do the taxpayers of Oro Valley wish to continue to pay for a failing golf course and restaurant or do they wish to fund further development of Naranja Park?
