Clowns of Cave Creek

Readers of Sonoran News have read Linda Bentley’s news article and my editorial about the dark side of Cave Creek claiming we are anti-Semitic. It is not only stupid because our 14-year veteran reporter is Jewish but we are 100 percent supporters of Israel and always have been. We supported the four council candidates against the slate, one of which was Jewish. That is not a record of anti-Semitism, nor is my personal friendship with scores of Jewish people.
