Don't we all do dumb things over and over and over again. When the computer is involved it is easy to do "dumb things." Just ask anyone of us.

Thanks, my question is answered. However, it does seem somewhat complicated. But then, lately a lot seems complicated. :-)

I know you guys will accuse me of sounding like a broken record. However, one need only look at the situation in Pine/Strawberry to see what happens when no attention is paid to supporting natural resources (water) and infrastructure (means to deliver the water) when approving development. People scream about the substandard water delivery system. Well, who installed those systems and who approved them? Yes, I know all about the argument that accuses the last owner of the system of neglect. However, that owner wasn't the only neglectful owner. Weren't there were many before that owner?

Anyway, from my perspective, ( :-))) due to an outlook of growth for the sake of growth, the present citizens of Pine/Strawberry have a monumental task in figuring out how to deal with the problems created by past decisions.

I keep praying, and hoping that those entrusted with approving developments approve them responsibly.

Talking about new legislation, does anyone know anything about the possibility of updating ARS small taxing districts? This is an issue that the Goldwater Institute brought up some time ago. Does anyone know if anything is happening?

From my perspective, (and remember we talked about perspective) the developers profit. They are now able to sell their product at a much lower price for the same profit or even more. Without impact fees, infrastructure is not taken care of as it should be. Development should pay for itself.

When will Arizona leaders learn about the destructive consequences of growth for the sake of growth.

NO, it is not proper to use a mentally challengened person in a sting operation. The question shouldn't even be asked. The persons running the sting operation should be stung and kicked out of whatever agency they are in.

Those agents should be ashamed of themselves, what could they possibly get out of tricking the mentally challenged?

That reminds me of a story, perhaps one that would lead you to conclude that I am mentally challenged.

I was subsituting in a classroom for the mentally challenged. I had been in that particular class several times and built relationships with the children. One day, a sweet little Downs Syndrome girl looked out the window in the school parking lot, and then excitedly said, Mrs. Winandy, Mrs. Winandy come here, quick, they are turning over cars in the parking lot. I ran to the window to see. Of course, there was nothing going on and my dear sweet little Downs Syndrome was smiling broadly. She got me!!! And she was thrilled that she had.

I could have hugged her, but that is and was taboo.

Hurray for the the rain!! I guess our responses to that natural wonder show how we feel about your question.
