July 18, 2012 By Joanne Winer Hate to cook? Hate to do dishes, pots Something new at General Store and pans? Want something that is easy and tastes great? Come on down to the General Store--they are trying some- thing new!! Some people just don't like to cook in the heat, or buy food items that they have to clean, cook and clean up from--especially some senior resi- dents (and winter visitors too) who have limited refrigeration space and not much room to spread out in some small kitchens. Some people live alone and just can't be bothered, and can't always afford to eat out all the time. The General Store will be offering Page 7 Quartzsite, AZ - Quartzsite Business Chamber is now acccepting applica- tions for the Santa's Workshop Arts and Crafts Festival to be held at Ty- son Wells Showgrounds on November 24th and 25th, 2012.

They also have side dishes of salads, veggies and desserts--like apple crisp, pasta salad, potato salads and much more.

There will be some staple items available all the time, with added special items on a regular basis. Suggestions are always welcome- -if there is something you like and it isn't there, let Sherrie know and she will probably have it next time you are in!!

Now the club meets all year round in Quartzsite! WILLIAM "SQUEAK" KOSSNAR ELECT LA PAZ COUNTY ASSESSOR MY PLAN TO MAKE IT FAIR: 1. To reduce the tax burden of the home owners. 2. Develop a website for the Assessor Office, so everyone can easily access their information. 3. Make sure all properties are being taxed equally, fairly, and consistently. 4. Stop all the favors and treat everyone the same. 5. Make sure my staff is helpful, friendly, and informative. 6. To exempt non-profit organizations. 7. To help the seniors, vets, widows, widowers, and disabled to receive the exemptions to which they are entitled. During my research, I have found so many properties that are NOT BEING TAXED and some are so UNDERVALUED it seems criminal. PLEASE BE SURE TO VOTE SO WE CAN MAKE IT FAIR! ~ Squeak.
