WHAT'S INSIDE Property tax increase proposed by county supervisors SEE 9/11 PAGE 3 9/11 Ceremony planned at Heroes Bell Area in Celia's Rainbow Gardens La Paz County is proposing an increase in primary property taxes of $356,341 or 5.6%. The proposed tax increase will cause La Paz County's primary property taxes on a $100,000 home to increase $13.20. In compliance with section 42-17107, Arizona Revised Statutes, La Paz County is notifying its property taxpayers of La Paz County's intention to raise its primary property taxes over last year's level. This pro- posed increase is exclusive of increased primary property taxes received from new construction. The in- crease is also exclusive of any changes that may occur from property tax levies for voter approved bonded indebtedness or budget and tax overrides. All interested citizens are invited to attend the public hearing on the tax increase that is scheduled to be held Thursday, August 10, 2017, at 2:00 p.m., at the La Paz County Board of Supervisors Meeting Room, 1108 Joshua Avenue, Parker, Arizona. By Joanne Winer Celia's Rainbow Gardens will be holding its 2nd annual 9/11 Cer- emony to honor the memories of those who were lost on that hor- rible day, and also to honor all the fi rst responders who not only were there helping during that disaster, but who have served in our communities. Last year on 9/11, there was a special dedication of the Bell tower, and representatives from the Fire Dept., Police Dept., VFW, VFW Auxiliary, Honor Guard, and Operation Hero Comfort at- tended with many others to dedi- cate this area of the Gardens to the people we know as Heroes. These are the brave men and women, whose service is so im- portant to this town, this county, this state, and the whole country. There will be monuments built this winter to honor all of these people whose unselfi shness has given us the freedoms we enjoy, and who also help to keep our cit- ies and their residents safe. There will be 6 monuments add- ed to this area during the winter months--a special one for show- ing respect and remembrance to those who lost their lives on 9/11 at the Twin Towers, the Pentagon and in the fi elds where the plane went down. This disaster, a terror- ist plot against the United States, should never ever be forgotten, nor should the lives of the almost 3,000 people who died that day. Their sacrifi ces should never be taken for granted, and especially not those who put their lives on the line to go into those buildings to help rescue any survivors. Another special monument will honor all branches of the military. These brave men and women who have fought for this country, some who have paid the ultimate price, should also never be forgotten, and we will make sure that they are remembered for what they have done to make this country safe for all of us, and for helping other countries enjoy the same freedoms we know. Our military is always ready to do what is asked of them, and those who are still serving deserve to be honored as well as those who have passed on. Special 9/11 Remembrance Ceremony planned
