Page 4 Hello Neighbors There is a very important charity in Quartzsite known as "Operation Hero Comfort".

The donated items are then sent to military units which have been adopted by Quartzsite's Operation Hero Comfort, two boxes every two weeks and more during holidays.

Necessary OPINION THE PEOPLE'S VOICE MONDAY FEB. 18th at KOFA Mtn. RV Park 170 N. Central, Quartzsite 928-927-6778 RSVP by Feb. 15th Relocated from the Main Event CON ON THE HILL, THE LIFELINE OF QUARTZSITE… okay, not so brief. Bye for now, Patricia Anderson Quartzsite Town Council Flags are flying It appears the carnival has come to town. A little more traffic on Kenoyer and Washington Street. Is this what we need? A business operating in our residential area and not licensed? Not Certified? All property owners have made substantial investments in this neighborhood and deserve fair and legal support by impartial city leaders to reject this business. M. Dempsey Quartzsite February 6, 2013 Grateful for Cathy McGilvery I just want to give a great big THANK YOU to Cathy McGilvery. Cathy is the Vice President and PowWow Chairman for the QIA. Nobody realizes how many hours it takes to do that job. Not only did she have to learn the job but she had to learn a difficult software program in a short amount of time. I heard many compliments from the Vendors about what a good job she was doing. She almost quit last year and I just want to thank her for staying and making this a very successful Pow Wow. It has been a pleasure working with her. Thanks again Cathy! Your friend, Sandy Andreasen, Quartzsite Selective code enforcement It seems that the town is still practicing selective code enfofcement. One massage therapist is still in business after receiving a cease and desist order from the town; while forcing another Massage therapist to close. One is not licensed by the state and the other one is. One applied for a conditional use permit in a residential neighborhood and was denied by SEE LETTERS PAGE 23 LETTERS TO EDITOR POLICY Desert Messenger encourages letters from its readers.
