Editor, Casa Grande Dispatch:

During his most recent visit, again, to the photogenic border with Mexico at California, reality show producer Donald Trump aptly described his welcoming committee (including Pinal County Sheriff Mark Lamb), as coming from “central casting.” How entertaining. One plays at president and the other plays a self-proclaimed non-border, border sheriff.

For Lamb this is a repeat performance coming on the heels of previous appearances as a regular background prop for Trump at the White House.

Voters should consider giving the two bit actors the vaudevillian hook and get them off the stage. Free them to pursue other extracurricular interests they seem to share as heart-throb thespians, among other common pursuits.

No, Mark Lamb, you are not a border sheriff, and no, Pinal County taxpayers are not paying you and your deputies to provide made-for-TV entertainment.

Taxpayers should not be subsidizing your response to calls from central casting for play-acting as a border sheriff. The border is a vital corridor for Arizona’s and Pinal County’s economy. Pinal County’s sheriff should not be play-acting against Pinal County’s best interest of keeping the border open for tourism, trade and commerce.

We had a play-acting sheriff in our recent past. Quit playing around. One series of revelations is enough.

Errors damage our confidence

Editor, Casa Grande Dispatch:

We often hear the term “Fake News” referring to the media and, understandably, they object to the term. Today’s issue is an excellent example of why we don’t (can’t) trust the media. A short story on Page 2A is titled “Girl falls from bike on I-10,” but there is no bike involved at all, she fell from a car. One has to wonder if the media can get such a simple short story so wrong, how wrong are the more complicated stories they print?
