Letter: Woman pleased with customer service at local gas station
To the editor:

On Oct. 19, I went to the Williams Health Care Center with a cold that turned into a serious sinus infection.

Afterwards I went to the Williams Conoco by Safeway to get gas before going home. I got out of my car to use my debit, sneezing and sniffling. As soon as I had punched in everything for my gas, an employee named Jackie came up to me and said, "I got this, I'll pump your gas. You go ahead and get back in your car."

Letter: Community made Halloween fun possible
To the editor:

For many years the city of Williams Recreation Department has produced activities including the Halloween festivities at the Youth Recreation Center and the Skate Park. As the funding has tightened for the department through the recent economic slowdown, the community has stepped forward and provided not only the means to produce the Halloween event but have expanded on it every year.

Letter: Couple enjoys outrageous repair

This is in reference to an outrageous repair by the city of Williams. The snowplow accidentally damaged our driveway and the street crew has finished the repairs. The job can only be described as outrageous.

Letter: Habitat makes roof repairs possible
To the editor:

I would like to thank the great people from Habitat for Humanity for helping me with my roof, Dave Martinez for the scaffolding, Ted Fain for the trailer and to Ronnie Muenks and Jackson Campbell for doing a great job laboring on the roof.

Tuesday, October 11, 2011

Letter: Please step forward with information
To the editor:

I saw in last week's paper that the identity of the person who tortured the cat in Parks so badly it had to be put to sleep is known. It appears the people who know his identity are afraid to go to the police so that this man can get the help he needs.

I beg them to go to the police as it is the first step in getting this man some help. Ask any doctor; the next time (and there most likely will be one if he is not stopped now) it could be a child.

Letter: Family will cherish plaque honoring their son

Letter: Mayor's letter addresses water issues
To our valued water customers:

As you know the city of Williams has been dealing with extremely high levels of manganese in the water supply. Manganese is a mineral that is naturally occurring in the water supply, and while it is generally undetectable to the average user, when manganese reacts with the chlorine in the water supply it becomes a problem. As manganese level increase, the result is discolored water, laundry and plumbing fixtures and more importantly an overall dissatisfaction with the water quality. However, it is important to keep in mind that the manganese does not pose a health threat, and at all times the City's water has met Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) standards.

Letter: Maintain existing bus parking
My comments are directed to your article in your last issue on the upcoming city council agenda item relating to the elimination of the tour bus parking on Route 66 downtown. Some downtown business people feel that the bus parking should be converted back to regular parking spaces.

Letter: City employees deserve praise
As the city and county are going through their budget meetings for the upcoming fiscal year, I would like to thank our employees for their hard work and efforts to maintain the current level of service to our community. Like most of Arizona, Williams has had to make severe budget cuts that have been felt throughout the community.

Letter: Reader responds to online poll
In reference to a recent online poll asking what would you do if you found a wallet, I'm glad you want an answer to such a question. Yes, I found a wallet. It was bulging with money. I took it home and counted $250.

Letter: Work at cemetery continues
The Williams Cemetery Committee hosted a Rotary Cleanup Day at the cemetery on April 28. About 35 people showed up to start raking the cemetery. A lot of raking was done but we still have a long way to go.

Letter: Please slow down in school zones
Our community has four school zones, all implementing 15 mph school safety zones. These "slow down" areas were placed by school boards and governing officials to help protect our students and children from the impending dangers of speeding cars.

Letter: Vote 'yes' on Proposition 100
Several people have asked my office for factual information about the "general dollar amount" of losses to Yavapai County school districts if the one-cent sales tax referral, Proposition 100, does not pass.
