Just a coincidence I am sure, but wasn't the former owner of Brooke named Williamson? If I remember correctly, the former owner of the water companies bought by Brooke was virtually tarred and feathered and run out of town.
Tom, I would state with "absoluteness" that you don't care for this guy. :-)
It was a senseless act. However, many who have children, who really shouldn't have children, commit senseless acts. While I can understand how children can cause anger in adults, I never will understand why the basic instinct to protect the vulnerable, doesn't prevent abusing children. Children locked in foot lockers for eating a popsicle on a hot day, 3 month olds admitted to the hospital with broken ribs, etc. The list is endless and SENSELESS!
Rex, I am very sorry to learn that your wife has been diagnosed with cancer. I hope that it was found in time to have a good outcome. The American Cancer Society sponsors many support groups. Does anyone know of any in the Payson area? It also puts out a catalogue TLC which markets many things at reasonable prices that can make the treatment period less bothersome.
I will keep you guys in my prayers.
Pat, I would like to look at a copy of the book you told Don about. Is it available in the Payson Library?
Tom, dog parks might be the thing of the future. I can't remember (recurring problem) where it was located, but I was at a dog park with my daughter. The dog park was either in Phoenix or Peoria. The dogs were having a wonderful time. Yes, the owners were expected to clean up after the dogs. I had a wonderful time just watching the dogs interact.
More on PSWID -- How does the Tea Party feel about PSWID including a $7.5 million bond in their budget? This bond doubles the PSWID debt. This bond is being included without the approval of the taxpayers. In other words it is taxation without representation. Sounds like something that triggered the original Tea Party!!
Has the Tea Party considered taking a stand on PSWID which is doubling property taxes. When PSWID bought out Brook they promised that property taxes would eventually not be necessary. They are not living up to their promises by raising property taxes from $300,000 to $625,000 in one year. If you are interested in controlling taxes, how about helping out the taxpayers in PSWID?
An article in Sunday's Arizona Republic reports that this couple is being offered opportunities to do a reality show. I think that shows something about what is offered on TV as entertainment. How low can it go? Do you think this couple's main motivation for their behavior was a desire to get their own reality TV show?
I read about the Scottsdale restaurant. My reaction was -- spoiled people who believe they are above it all and can get away with anything. The stories related here seem to illustrate that there are others of the same ilk. I have the feeling that some also might reside in Pine/Strawberry in addition to those living in Payson.
I once got into a tet-a-tet with a driver of a semi of all things. It was very frightening. I was on the expressway. He passed me and after cutting sharply in front of me made an obscene gesture. He then slowed down, when I went to pass him, he moved over. Since I felt he had a decided weight advantage, I slowed down, he slowed down. I finally got off at the next exit. To this day, I have no idea what was bugging him. Thank heavens for free way exits!
