All Gone: The Pine Strawberry Water Improvement District met Thursday but gave no hint that on Saturday five of the seven board members would abruptly resign, citing the effects of an attempt to recall four board members. Ron Calderon, Richard Dickinson, Gary Lovetro, Michael Claxton and Ray Pugle all resigned (the five board members on the left in photo). Tom Weeks (far right) and Sam Schwalm (at edge of photo) did not resign, but will no longer have a quorum to conduct business. The Gila County Board of Supervisors will now assume control.
