In regard to Don Thompson’s letter, I have to agree with him that many citizens of Morenci are nothing more than nosey folks who love to gossip. I have lived in Morenci for a long time (probably too long).
Instead of them worrying about who is doing what and who got a new pair of shoes at JC Penney instead of Sears, why don’t they focus on things for the better...like how to stop child abuse/neglect/molestation. How to stop vandalism. How to stop high school graduation parties from serving alcohol to underage kids (after all, I didn’t know that high school seniors were 21 years of age). These are just a few to name.
Things like that are worth talking about and putting a stop to, but who is going to gossip about their own family? Well, if that don’t hit the nail on the head, I give up, nothing will.
