Smart Meters a Not So Smart Move

The innocuous arfticle appears here and at first glance looks harmless and may even seem like a good idea:

Arizona Public Service Co. will begin installing “smart” electric meters on all Casa Grande homes beginning in mid-June and ending in late July, the City Council was told during last week’s meeting.

Board game creates Lost Dutchman adventure

If you’ve lived in the East Valley for a while, you’ve probably heard the story of the Lost Dutchman Gold Mine, the long-lost treasure trove believed to be somewhere in the Superstition Mountains near Apache Junction. Now, Crash Games, LLC, a Phoenix board game design and publishing company has created a game based on the mine.

Clark Smithson:  We are watching you

At the meeting this evening we heard two disturbing things.  First – that you fell asleep during the Supervisors meeting and secondly, that when you were awake, you voted with Pete Rios to raise our taxes.  This forum is open to you for your response should you care to make one.  But, I have to say, your first actions are disappointing to many of us who believed you were what you said you were about.

‘EXISTENTIAL THREAT’ TO WESTERN U.S. STATES

Normally, I will not include news outside of the Pinal County area but if the US Government has its way, this will certainly affect Pinal County – radically.  Don’t let this one slide, Folks.  Contact your State and Federal Representatives and lrt them know you are mad as hell and you demand they do something about this.
