Milk Ranch Well needs filter after all
by Max Foster
There is plenty of history out there about the Milk Ranch Well#1 including letters sent to and articles written by the Payson Roundup. Unless there is a major revelation it's time to walk away. The movers and the shakers got their way, at least one old board member is up before the court but the State is probably too busy to look further. Due diligence was ignored and the communities paid dearly for the arrogance and actions of the leaders of the old regime.
The people of Strawberry deserve a reliable source of water of their own, and pumping water uphill with the cost of electricity alone does not make sense. PSWID owns the K2 well site maybe it deserves another look? The infrastructure is already there and somewhere a detailed engineering plan exists. Either way with all of the money Strawberry has shelved out they should have another well.
Correction to the recent Roundup article. The prior board had the Milk Ranch #2 well drilled they did not buy it from Mr. Ray Pugel who sold us the Milk Ranch #1 well,
My opinion. Before we spend another dime on that blankety blank well someone needs to do a complete audit on just how much the community of Pine and Strawberry have spent on it so far. Audit should cover the money lost on trying to fix the unappraised well prior to purchase, this is money that was never deducted from purchase price as promised. Cost of all of the consultants, repairs, reports, man hours, rented equipment, burnt out pumps, filters, sensors, bypass valves, special flush permits and the cost of water outage that most of Pine experienced for several days.
Somewhere in the PSWID archives should be reports from previous consultants about the Milk Ranch Well #1, although I doubt if any negative statements were allowed to be filed. The current board could look at the documents they find and seek out the reports from Tetra Tech who were forced to walk away along with other experts because certain board members wanted them gone. See this link about the dust up. You will see some familiar names.
February 23rd, 2012 extract from PSWID minutes
“Ray also shared his experience from drilling the Milk Ranch Well. He shared how people had said he was dishonest. It was published that the Milk Ranch Well was no good, it had “dirty water.” He commented that the truth is the Milk Ranch Well is the highest producing well that has been drilled in Pine or Strawberry with pristine water.”

Pat, here is a link I found online. It gives some information. The link to board members, financials etc. appears to be password protected.

A case of don't do as I do, do as I say.

"During a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing on foreign cyberthreats to the United States, Sen. Thom Tillis (R-NC) argued that America had often meddled in other countries' elections and warned against overreacting to interference in our own.
Referencing research from Carnegie Mellon University that found that the United States had been involved in 81 different foreign elections since World War II, Tillis emphasized that Russia’s interference in the 2016 election was not unique on the world stage.
“In fact, when Russia apparently was trying to influence our election, we had the Israelis accusing us of trying to influence their election,” he said, referencing accusations by some that the State Department funded an Israeli-Palestinian peace advocacy group that was politically antagonistic to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
“So I am not here to talk about that, but I am here to say that we live in a big glass house and there are a lot of rocks to throw,” he said."
In just 2016 we interfered with the Israelis election, in addition President Obama told the British people that if they voted to leave the European Union that they would go to the back of the queue (line) if they came seeking any trade deals with the US. If White House and the DNC knew about hacking well before the election, why did they take no countermeasures and complain about it back then?
Tom, your heading triggered this thought which made me smile the other day.
There is a petition being circulated for the White House.
The petition suggests that the next major vessel be christened “USS The Deplorables,” as the petition notes, “to honor those citizens who rose up to defend America and the Constitution from the globalists.” Whichever way we voted it makes a change to see some tongue in cheek humor.
The BBC news once well respected, is biased when it comes to reporting or hosting on air discussions involving politics. As you say we're not the only country with biased news. My solution is to research to get as close to the truth as possible, but it should not have to be that way. What are those wannabe reporters being taught in journalism class, or are they spending too much time in their safe rooms I wonder?
Yes Tom, I had a " reflex reaction. It is not an objective, common sense search for the actual problem. The real problem you see is not the people involved, it is the system!"
My heart says what happened to the character of the British people that they did not say dam the system I will not allow this tiny baby to die alone, I will look again at this woman who appears to have mental health issues, do we know this woman's blood type, should this patient have an intestinal scan? I will no longer look away when I know something is wrong.
The Brits stood up for the rights of people throughout history are they so overwhelmed by the Government and the Welfare State that they can do nothing? Maybe Brexit is a sign that all is not lost but now the "Remainers" are challenging the results of a nationwide referendum to exit the EU and wrestle control away from Brussels. In the US we have recounts for some election results, have we all lost our backbone and marbles?
