We invite you to not only see a problem, but THE PEOPLE'S VOICE Time has come Well the time has come, as most of you know I'm shutting down the [Quartzsite Cri- er] paper. The main reason is my continued declining health, I've decided to dedicate the remainder of my time on earth serving the Lord. Some of you may not know that I am an ordained Minister, as of Oct 21st, 2011, and am now striving to move my min- istry "The Voice In The Wilderness Minis- try" forward. My goal is to bring others to Christ and to Help those in Need with a hand up! I've came a long way from sleeping in the desert here three years ago, To all of you who have stood by me Thank you from the bottom of my heart. This has been a real joy. The final Edition is now on line for you. at Bob Nickerson Quartzsite Little Scholars' thanks you The Quartzsite Community Thrift Store re- cently donated $200 to the Preschool! An amazing statement was made to the Direc- tor, Lisa DeHaven, "Spend it on the kids, for what they need"! No additional paperwork required. In this day and time a truly free gift is sometimes overlooked and not appre- ciated. The staff of Little Scholars Preschool sincerely thanks the kind people of Quartz- site (year round and Snowbirds) for the do- nations to the Thrift Store and we in turn are recipients of the hard work of the many hours volunteers put into making organiza- tions like the Thrift Store successful.

Shy friends loosen up and the bold, are at their best.Young and old mingle and that's not a bad thing. It's a social occasion that can't be beat. I miss the singing from yesteryear. Provided by Elmer London & Desert Messenger in Quartzsite, it is great to know that car- ing people still remember those of us who are year round residents in this quaint little desert town! With sincere appreciation for your contin- ued support, Lisa DeHaven Director of Little Scholars' Preschool Needs of our elders Quartzsite, Arizona is a gathering place for baby boomers making it essential for us to comprehend the growing needs of a population consisting mostly of residents and visitors over the age of sixty. The most pressing needs of our aging com- munity is an assisted living facility since more and more elders worry about what comes next, once their ability to maintain home and health becomes less and less. The option of assisted living is certainly one way to get rid of their most worrying problems. Investors for our upcoming assisted living facility are filling a much needed service to our population, and I just wanted to take this time to thank Generations Lifestyles for setting root in Quartzsite, Arizona.

This man did not know for a fact, if I had a business li- cense or if I was required too. With little research I found that towns all over the U.S. use wording such as; "any appliance, machine, vehicle, apparatus or electronic device, that business is conduct- ed of", which very clearly covers a comput- er Internet business, in their Town Code. Asst. Town Manager, Al Johnson, stated the Town Attorney had interpreted the li- cense code as any business that was mak- ing money within the town limits. I rea- soned that the code is very loosely written and needs revision. When asked how this code could be enforced, he stated, "I could have the police confiscate your computer"- I will expedite applying for that license. I have worked for Richard Oldham since April 17, 2009. I punch the clock and go to work as the housekeeper. I am guilty of what by association? I have no political ties or affiliations with anyone. This is the same behavior you oppose. You are continuing the Cycle, which is what I am trying desperately to end. Funny how people are not all that different than the ones they oppose. Your right for who you want as Mayor, in a fair and open manner, will cease to exist, if Proposition 1 is passed. Town Ordinanc- es should never be manipulated to suit a possible change. Ordinances should only be revised if and when necessary. Please Vote No on Proposition 1. Jenny Mills Quartzsite That-away, or this-away? Winter visitors are busy making plans to move on. Some sooner some later. Quartzsite provides them, four direct lo- cal options. North, South, East and West. Full time Nomads may flip a coin to decide which-away. Those heading home will en- joy a jump start for their chosen direction. Just hit the road with no delaying wander- ing. Not many towns offer such conve- nience. We wish them Godspeed which is some- what near that posted. While here we hope you met all your old friends and perhaps made a few new. Come on back next fall, we'll be here for you. Good luck and happy highways.
