Great series - very informative. The author certainly knows this town.

This is a keeper. I'd like to read the columns you wrote during this period from week to week.

Thanks, Stephanie. You can find them with a subscription to newspapers.com

Personal side note. As my ancestors did 800 to 1000 years ago, my wife and I are preparing to vacate Arizona and relocate to the western slopes the Rockies in Colorado.

I can't take the craziness anymore.

Ruben i recommend Uruguay.
Very small percentages of cultists.

Reading Taltons Seattle Times column posted in Rogue Front Pages. I think Musk is correct and Im betting on Arnold.

During the 2000s, there was a major acceleration of decline in west Phoenix, particularly the areas just west of I-17, from Camelback Road to at least Bell Road.
