Keep The Verde River open

There are very few areas near metro Phoenix where residents can spend time by a flowing river. Arizona is HOT during the summer and it is difficult to find cooler outdoor activities.

Spending time barbequing or camping in your own private spot by the river provides a chance to get outdoors without suffering from the tremendous heat. The lower Verde River runs south from the Bartlett Dam and joins the Salt River. The only part of...

Barry Park HOA Quitcher Bitchin'

It has come to my attention that there are several members of the Barry Park HOA that want to bitch about everything.

I don't want the HOA in my business any more than they already are, property values are down because of the economy, not because of...

New addition to animal bylaw to prevent Dogs that have been deemed dangerous by a provincial court to be allowed in Redwood Meadows

I am looking to have a new By-law implemented into Redwood Meadows that would prevent dogs that have been deemed dangerous by the provincial courts to reside or visit our community. We have a unique Community that doesn't allow us to fence our yards. We have limited means to protect our children from dogs. This bylaw would also prevent anyone from moving into our community and living next door to you with their deemed dangerous dog.

Stop auto insurance companies from using Credit Scores as a basis for insurance rates

I know I'm not the only person tired of having my auto insurance rate based on my credit score. For years the government has allowed insurance companies to use our credit scores as a basis for car insurance. Not only is this insulting (even for someone like myself who has fairly good credit) but it has no basis in the auto insurance realm. Auto insurance should be based primarily on driving record, not excluding tickets removed by those...
