Not sure if Gila County has to reimburse the state DPS. Also not sure if the law allows billing of individuals for their rescues like the PRMC can do if their medical helicopter is used.

Have the two Globe Democrats (vs. our one Payson Republican) agreed to start spending over 70% of the tax revenue in Northern Gila County where it comes from? Or will they continue to steal our tax money to spend it in the much smaller Globe area? Better yet, they should start spending about 80% up here to start slowly making up for the years they have been stealing from us, using the gerrymandered district boundaries as the key mechanism to control the elections and therefore the spending patterns. Shame on Pastor and Marcanti.

What are the odds that no one will accidentally or on purpose end up with some roosters? Have you ever lived within a half-mile of one? If so, then you know you will not be able to sleep past 4:30AM. I like domestic and farm animals as much as the next guy, but Don is correct in his observations about chickens' pens stinking. So just be sure that either you don't live within about 50 yards of one, or that the chicken farmers/ranchers have a fail-safe system to keep the smell from wafting into your yard and home.

Just curious. Are these businesses betting on a large number of ASU students moving in? I heard a rumor that some businesses (e.g., the Stage) have already made decisions on such financial assumptions, with marginal results. The MHA and Banner group, among others, have made financial guarantees to ASU, but can they do so to these new businesses? And can they guarantee us tax-paying citizens that our infrastructure will be appropriately funded and expanded to keep up with the increased demands?

If we have money for history projects like this (that make people feel good) and for appeasing the reluctant ASU leaders (with monetary guarantees that they can't lose money if they fail to break even), then why is it we have no money to improve and expand our road system to handle the increased frequency and magnitude of traffic jams? Mayor Evans said there would be no bypasses in his lifetime (due to a lack of money), but his Mogollon Rim Health Alliance and the Banner Group seem to have plenty of cash to prop up the new campus initiative. Will the businesses who observe large increases in street-traffic sales provide these funds? I seriously doubt that large portions of this new income from the increased vouolmes will be set aside for us citizens to travel on improved roads and expanded traffic bypass systems.

Hope this jackass gets some serious time with all these charges. Especially for endangering a deputy. Please do not let him plead out.

A green campus in the middle of a town that has no infrastructure for, money for, or citizen desire to pay for, a bike-commuting culture? This is not Berkeley or Santa Monica. People here tend to be more independent and self-sufficient, and, gasp, Republican.

Are you seriously suggesting that having 6,000 additional students would not significantly impact traffic? Having lots of yellow bikes around, even if they weren't stolen, will not help the students ride around town if we don't have bike lanes. These would require money we don't have for road improvements and road width expansion.

The speed limit on Tyler is a ridiculous 35 mph. Since the road could safely support 45 mph, it is clear that the city is not encouraging Tyler as a partial local bypass.
