I would like to thank all of the community members who attended the Ellsworth Elementary School Open House on Jan. 29. The turnout and comments throughout the night were truly overwhelming.
Prescott High School junior Alex Ewing is the Feb. 7 Prescott Kiwanis Student of the Week. He was nominated by science teacher Sarah Schalow, who said "Alex's attitude, participation, and work ethic in Astronomy has been outstanding all semester! He shows genuine interest in the wonders of space and asks many intriguing questions that have allowed him to expand on the topics covered. Not only is he kind, respectful, and a great team player, but he has also been in great academic standing all semester. Having Alex in my class has been truly wonderful!"

I read with great interest last week's letter "Where has compassion gone?" I agree on most of his points. Where we deviate is where is the compassion of the original owners of the domestic cat someone owned? This community has a large problem with stray and feral cats.

At this time, our Gov. is in shutdown mode. Too bad it spoiled Mr. Trump's big fundraising deal at his Florida hideout. It won't stop the bigwig Republican donors, including the CEO's of several businesses that just got a big gob of money dropped in their laps due to the tax change. They will still party on, laughing at the poor saps that think this tax thing was good for the country.
