Please try to get to the meetings so that you can understand the situation. I went to the two work meetings. The committee is hard at work trying to do the best they can for the community.
What is really sad is that people like that make it bad for people who really need welfaire.
You are not nuts. They are unscrupulous and just plain greedy. I can't imagine how they got that much in welfare payments. $165,000 over 7 years comes to just a bit over $23,570 a year. That is more than some couples get from S.S. after they have retired.
Why claim S.S. after retiring -- get welfare!
Water is essential for life, one cannot live without water. I believe that since it is so essential, the adequacy of water supply should be determined when approving new subdivisions.
The subdivision that I live in was originally going to be a golf course community. Can you believe a water gobbling golf course in Pine?
As for the trucks on Tyler. Perhaps the road was not built to withstand the constant travel of heavily loaded trucks.
It is always difficult to interpret what is meant by some statements. I agree "inadequate 100 year water supply" is one of those statements.
This comment was removed by the site staff for violation of the usage agreement.
Now the government put out a report that the area was prone to mud slides. What should be done to make sure that everyone knows about the report. Should disclosures be required on all property exchanged in the area?
I agree, people do make decisions to build in unsafe areas. For example, the Gulf Coast is prone to some very damaging storms. Yet people build and rebuild beach front property.
As for the Portals == I had occasion to drive through Portal 2 recently. I was surprised by the number of homes that have very high, large decks that are only supported by wooden 4x4's. I estimate that some of these 4x4's are at least 16 feet plus. I am sure that they have a beautiful view, but I would be a bit nervous sitting out on the deck knowing that it is only supported by wood 4x4's.
Well, we have finally come up with a government body that out does the Arizona Legislature for ridiculousness.
Well, dolphins are lovable--perhaps more so than some humans :-)
Did you see "The Man with the Golden Arm?" It was a movie made sometime back in the fifties starring Frank Sinatra. It tells the story of Sinatra's character falling into drug addiction. When I saw it, the movie scared the living daylights out of me. Not only was Sinatra's character unable to beat the habit, the drug supplier was a real sleazy character. I left the movie vowing that I would never fall into the trap -- and I especially did not want anyone like that sleazy drug supplier near me.
Times have changed, and I am sure that the movie would now be viewed as "not sophisticated." Of the course, the viewer -- me -- wasn't all that sophisticated either. Whatever, I got the message.
The school that my kids attended had a very good drug education program. I can't remember all of the particulars -- the course also touched upon personal values. Anyway it was very effective for my kids. In fact they tried as hard as they could to get me to stop smoking. However, I wasn't ready to give up that habit until about another 10 years passed.
With all the cutbacks in education, I wonder if the course, or something similar is still offered. They also learned to type as 7th and 8th graders. They also had P.E., band, music, home arts, "shop," and art included in their middle school curriculum.
Getting off topic. sorry
