I like prayer. I often pray, at least once a day, likely more. Our family prays each day at dinner, as we have for generations. We’ve discussed prayer over the years, that prayer is at least as powerful for those who pray as for those who are the subjects of prayer, that prayer helps us cope with those difficult times and celebrate the beauty in our lives.

I’d like to publicly thank the unknown gentleman who stopped and helped my 13-year-old son who was hit by a car at the intersection of Guadalupe and Signal Butte Roads while riding his bike to Desert Ridge Junior High School on the morning of Thursday, (Sept.) 26th. This kind man witnessed the incident, helped get my son and his bike get out of the roadway, and stayed with him until police and paramedics arrived. He also provided a description of the vehicle that hit my son; a white SUV driven by an older woman that never stopped. Thankfully, my son was not seriously injured, but he was knocked down and his left elbow was broken by the impact. The break required surgery to have pins inserted to stabilize the bone.

The Arizona Corporation Commission has a responsibility to Arizona citizens and utility ratepayers to decide cases based on their merits and the facts. Tom Patterson in his Aug. 14 commentary ignored the facts in his attempt to sway public opinion in favor of an APS proposal before the Commission that would change the rules regarding solar energy.
