Interesting Headlines In Today's Paper

The dust situation along I-10 has been aggravated this spring by investors buying up land in Cochise County to plant new orchards - almonds, pecans, and pistachios. The non-resident owners are mostly from California and the Middle East, but the culprit in the recent wrecks is from Phoenix. There is little in the way of restrictions in Cochise County, making it a target have investors who have been impacted in California.

As for the mega-corp Nestle coming to bottle City of Phoenix water, my mind just boggles. I'm sure it won't say on the labels that you're drinking CAP water from the Colorado River. Quite a contrast with the situation in Oregon, where Hood County voters have just invalidated an agreement between Nestle and Hood River that would have brought a similar plant to that city. Ironic that water seems more valued in Oregon than Arizona.
