Besides being treated like royalty, we were highly impressed with the fi ne fl y- ing site that has been created and the enthusiastic support of the community leaders which made a lot of the runway development possible. Please publish our public note of thanks to the Desert Flyers RC Club in Quartzsite and to the community leaders who have supported this highly worthwhile program. Russ Verbael, Yuma, AZ TO THE VOTERS OF QUARTZSITE Don’t let it happen! Expose the identity of those who support the ones trying to kill this town. Those who signed those petitions of council recalls. Bring them out in the open. When the petitions are turned in to the county the names should be become public knowledge. Those who sign are just as responsible as those who coerce them to sign. If you know these people bring them out into the open and reason with them. It may be hard as they aren’t always acquaint- ed with reason. Fight for your town and let us put an end to all this non-sense. It has gone on far too long. Elmer London, Quartzsite TIME TO GIVE CREDIT To The Community of Quartzsite, It’s time to give credit to the coun- cil member responsible for the new vendor,swap meet, RV Park, town, board. Barbara Cowell, she recognized the the needs of the community and had the fortitude to go forward with her idea. Anyone familiar with the work- ings of government knows it takes the ability to work with others to make a idea a reality. So hats off to Barbara, council and town staff who worked together to create this wonderful new addition to our town government. Thank you, Carolyn Guthrie SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT # 4 I was quite pleased to see our Chief of Police Jeff Gilbert and our Town Manager Alex Taft leading the Hi Jolly Daze Parade. They are two of our most prominent citizens in our Beloved Town of Quartzsite. I am very proud of them and also our Town Council as they have been subjected to harassment beyond belief by certain persons that have been CUSTOM MADE PET ACCESSORIES The Pet Patio ~ Ray & Verna Maurer Come by and visit our booth located at Tyson Wells Space 21 Full line of nylon products and comfort harnesses, fl eece coats, dog boots, doggles, etc. 661-428-3499 or 206-890-1696 Fleece and CottonFabric by the Yard & more...

DANCES EVERY Music by the Westernaires 928-927-6325 235 E. Ironwood St., Quartzsite J������ 19, 2011 run out of other Towns. Now we have some people who are not, by any stretch of your imagination, permanent residences of our Town that have the idea of running for Town Council positions. In my opinion, only those citizens that are permanent and own some property should be consid- ered for any public offi ce in our Town. If, for some reason these people do get on the Council and they cause big problems, all they have to do is hook up to their junky trailers and move on, as they have done in the past. We have the best Town Council that we have ever had. I know because I’ve seen everything that has taken place in our Town since we incorporated. We can control our own destiny! I’m sure that we have the proper leaders at the helm except for the “mayor?” who won’t work with the Town. Rather he appears to remain the pawn of the person on the southwest corner of our Town. That person seems to have never forgotten that he was recalled back in ‘93 and has since attempted to regain power any way that he can. We said ENOUGH of him and he has these dis- sidents working for him now. But, he will not prevail as our bonofi de citizens can see through it all. Probably the best thing that these dis- sidents have done is to put all their hateful thoughts and their screwy ideas into their newspaper. We have a wonderful Town and we are operating within our budget no matter what the “mayor?” says. We must send the “dog woman” and her cohorts down the road if we are to have a prosperous Town.
