Letter to our advertisers

This letter will be sent to all current and future advertisers

You may receive threats from people who are asserting Sonoran News is “negative” about CCUSD matters. They have been joined by political pressure groups from Carefree.
First of all, award winning Sonoran News is only ‘guilty’ of factual and quality reporting as well as thoughtful editorials.

So far, these people have threatened to boycott companies which advertise in Sonoran News.

There is a legal principle called “Tortious Interference With Contract.”

According to Harper Law PLC, “A contract, in its simplest terms, is a written or oral agreement between two or more people. Most people understand that a party to a contract may be liable if they fail to live up to their contractual obligations. It is also true, however, that if a third party interferes with the parties’ contractual expectations, the third party may be liable based on his or her interference with the contract.”

All Sonoran News advertisers are protected by this law and given sufficient information we will sue any and all transgressors for damages.

Please contact your advertising representative if you are threatened and provide information, especially the identity of the individual or organization.

bobcatsCatching the sunset

At about 4:20 p.m. on Nov. 14, 17 year-old Evan Willis took this bobcat photo at his home in Tatum Ranch. They jumped from the natural desert wash behind the home onto the cement wall and walked back and forth. They seemed to enjoy the sun setting and only stayed a few minutes, probably because they heard the family dogs barking from safely inside the house.
