Answer by Dragos©™
Best Day Care
Cornerstone Preschool has been voted Yuma’s Best Day Care for the sixth consecutive year by The Sun’s readers.
“We are very excited, and we are very grateful,” said Anna Martinez, director.
Cornerstone is a preschool with planned, structured activities to prepare children for school, said Martinez.
She attributes its long-standing Yuma’s Best title to the facility’s staff. “We work very well together to do our best throughout the year, and we have very good daily communication with our parents.
“Our staff exceeds the number of training hours required and … has a very good understanding of how children develop and how they learn.”
The preschool provides services for children from age 2 through pre-kindergarten. Every year, around the end of January, pre-kindergarten students partake in Cornerstone’s Pre-reading Skills Program. “By the end of the year, they have some reading skills,” Martinez said.
Located at 1098 S. 5th Ave., the preschool operates year-round from 6:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. The number is 782-1995.

Question by edward r: The Right To Defend?
As the brother of the taxi cab driver Fadee Aktab that was killed today in Dallas, Texas I would like to address the issue of crime in the streets of Dallas and other cities in this country. I have spent 30 years as a member of the armed forces, U S Army (ret). I have been to many other countries and the US is becoming a battlefield itself. I had told my brother to be careful because of the crime in the streets. He was only trying to be a father and a good husband providing for his family. I am a long haul over the road truck driver and find myself in danger as well. Question why is it a law that a driver cannot carry a weapon to protect himself because of motor regulations. If my brother had been carrying a legal weapon he my have been able to fight off these thugs . I feel we should have this right to defend ourselves. I’m only saying that in a country where I have laid my life on the line to defend, we should have the same right to defend ourselfs in the streets that my brother and I grew up in playing under the same street lights that he was killed under today.

Because of the practice of our government to treat every problem that the citizens have as if they are children, and the government is the “parent”.
What I mean to say is when one person ( A driver of a truck or other vehicle) uses a gun out of……….for example: road rage, the government punishes the whole population because of the individual.
That is on MOST things. Take the seatbelt laws for instance. Children on school buses are not required to wear them because it would not be cost effective……LOL. So the children are exempt. Or if someone uses a vehicle to run over someone and kill them, you don’t see a law passed to take away vehicles from people because it would hurt the economy. It’s all about money and control.
When I was 14 I had to shoot a gang member to stop him and his partners from forcibly raping me. I used a home made zip gun and took the switchblade knife that the leader had as a trophy. Needless to say the gang didn’t file a police report.
When I was 16 I had to shoot 2 gang members when they beat and knifed a customer at a place where I worked and then tried to rob me. They went to the hospital and I had to find another job because they would be released due to the fact that I was under age and used an unregistered revolver. No one disputed the fact that they had it coming, only that what I did was not “legal”.
Several years later when I joined one of the government services, I found several occasions where I had to use weapons. I once faced off by myself against a #1 wanted on the FBI’s 10 most wanted. Once I capped a guy who had a record of nearly everything you could think of and I was given everything short of a cavity search. His partner was at that time wanted for murder and what the two received as “punishment” was nothing more than a slap on the wrist.
The logic behind many of our laws has become absurd. What can you do short of insurrection? Our legal system needs an enima.

Question by : Why are some mothers critical and controlling even when their children are adults?
I am an adult and have children of my own and yet in my mother’s eyes I am doing everything wrong. Don’t get me wrong I love her and I am grateful for everything she is done but how is it she can make me feel so inferior? Why do they do this and how can I avoid being like her?
Answer by Jason
First she probably always was a little bit, you just didn’t notice it ’cause you were a kid. Second, you are no longer her little kid, so she is deprived of being the good mother now and is resentful. Third and last she’s just getting older too and may be becoming a little grumpy.
I wouldn’t worry about becoming her, it’s your life. You may or may not be close, or have a lot in common, and some traits are past down. Just keep being your wonderful self w/ confidence, everything will work out.
