Letter to the Editor: Is QC Trying to Backdoor San Tan Valley Annexation?

The Town of Queen Creek has been on a systematic path over the last two years to take over Johnson Utilities service area near its borders by any means necessary, including through dubious business practices, misleading regulators and customers, and now outright poaching.

Letter to the Editor: Being Biracial and Embracing My Black History

Growing up biracial, I would say I was a bit confused on how to identify myself. My mother is white and my father is black. Although interracial dating is accepted today (somewhat) and a lot more common, that doesn’t erase the history that comes with it.

Letter to the Editor: Pinal County residents have much for which to be grateful

Following our recent election, as 2018 draws to a close it is not an exaggeration to say that Pinal County residents have much for which to be grateful.

Letter to the Editor: Opposed to Annexation by Queen Creek

We did not ask for nor do we choose to be annexed into Queen Creek. We are a large and increasing number of residents living in a development named Encanterra located in unincorporated San Tan Valley close to the southeastern border of Queen Creek. On May 3, 2018, a handful of residents living in Encanterra took it upon themselves to make a preliminary application with the Town of Queen Creek to annex Encanterra as well as other adjacent farmland, Fry’s Marketplace, and the medical plaza on the Encanterra side of Gantzel Road. Later on June 5, this same group filed a formal application for this purpose. Subsequently, the annexation map was revised two more times, each time eliminating some of the adjacent land until it included only Encanterra.

Letter to the Editor: Education in San Tan Valley

A few months ago, during the Education Demonstration, I wrote an Op Ed piece talking about funding schools with a real testimony from the perspective of an educator, the spouse of an educator and the son of an educator.
