March 20, 2013 HELLO NEIGHBORS: Looks like another "season" has come and gone, the line at the Post Office is much shorter, the store shelves are not as empty, winter visitors are heading home and once again we bid farewell to old friends, new acquaintances and wish for them a safe journey. We "full timers" gear up for another scorching summer, in doing this we must remember to look out for each other each other-if the electric goes out remember that the Sr. center now has a generator, drink lots of water, stay out of the sun as much as possible, don't go out on the desert without letting someone know where you are going and when you will be coming back. Bye for now. Patricia Anderson Quartzsite Town Council QIA Bingo gives thanks to many! Thank you, Thank you, to all of you. You as our staff, our players and our donators who have made this season such a successful one. To our Bingo Staff we could not have done this without your commitment and hard work. What can I say about a group of such incredible people? People who have work so hard and given so much. Thank you. To our players for being so loyal and so much fun to work with. These are a group of people you look forward to seeing each Friday. To all of our donators who donated so many items to have our game of WHAT IS IT. During the period the game was run your names were advertised each week. Because of all of you we were able Quartzsite Greeting Cards & Post Cards Cards for All Occasions!

Main St., Quartzsite letters to the editor Tearing Down Or Building Up? I watched them tearing a building down, A gang of men in a busy town; With a heave-ho and a lusty yell They swung a beam, and the building fell. I asked the foreman, "Are these men skilled, And the men you'd hire if you had to build?" He gave a laugh and said, "No, indeed, Just common labor is all I need; I can easily wreck in a day or two What builders have taken a year to do." And I thought to myself as I went my way, Which of these roles have I tried to play? Am I a builder who works with care, Measuring life by the rule and square? Am I shaping my deeds to a well-made plan, Patiently doing the best I can? Or am I a wrecker who walks the town, Content with the labor of tearing down?
