I attended the town council meeting on June 14, 2011. I was appalled at the behavior of some of the people in at- tendance. I realize that there are differences of opinion, but that night was something else. Mob mentality took over a lot of the people. It was frightening and it sickened me. Common decency doesn’t tolerate a young man shouting “Fxxx you!” to a woman old enough to be his mother because she asked him to be quiet. Mr. Roth was shouting, booing and being disruptive from the moment he entered the building. Mr. Taylor, shame on you for belittling one of our veterans by Deadline for Aug. 3rd issue of the Desert Messenger is WED. JULY 27th Email: Phone: 541-218-2560 425 N.

Cowell, Quartzsite 928-927-5400 shouting, “Go home, machine gun Joe” as our councilman Joe Winslow left the meeting at the suggestion of the town attorney. I applaud the courage of our town manager, inspector, attorneys, and council for trying to hold an informa- tive meeting and leaving when that was not allowed. I was amazed at how the mayor allowed shouting and badger- ing to go on and how many times he actually seemed to be trying to incite the crowd. Anyone who left the meeting that night feeling smug, you are in my prayers. I saw Satan at work that night and it wasn’t pretty. I had the townspeople of Quartzsite put on the prayer list for our church and I am appealing to the town’s church leaders to have a prayer vigil. We need help to stop the evil which seems deter- mined to destroy our town. Hate is ugly and we certainly saw it raise its head that night. Pray for our town. Pray for peace, love and tolerance to once again become the norm for the people living in Quartzsite. Thank you, Judy Nacheff Quartzsite J��� 6, 2011 TIME FOSTER FACE THE FACTS Can anybody explain Foster’s actions? He tried to call a council meeting (not sure if he followed correct policy) and failed. He should have understood at that point he was out numbered. But then he tried to hold a ‘town meeting’ without posting notices ahead of time as required. He knows, or claims to know the law, but attempts to hold il- legal meetings. Foster was really attempting to cir- cumvent state law and policy and hold a meeting to publicly discuss comments made about Chief Gilbert. This was turned over to the state and Foster needs to wait until the investigation is done and reports are fi led. Foster tried again at the Council Meeting, but failed again, expect one of his backers was again arrested. But to get to the heart of the matter, Foster has been after our Chief since before he was elected. Foster is upset with six of the seven council members as they have not been in favor of almost everything he would like to do. It is time Foster faces the facts. The major- ity is against the items he has tried to do since taking offi ce. He has made many claims and to my memory NONE have been proven. Just take one example. He has claimed to have had four different careers during his life time, two which  SEE LETTERS ON PAGE 5 OPEN ALL SUMMER! Sandy and Debbie are available for all your hair needs.
