Meeting in Wiliams tonight about Twin Fire

Flagstaff, AZ – The Twin Fire began as a controlled fire about three miles southwest of Williams. But it turned into a wildfire after shifting winds caused spot fires to ignite outside the project's initial boundaries.

Eventually, 64 homes were evacuated, and more than 400 personnel were called in to fight the blaze. It's now over 90 percent contained, but has cost over two million dollars to fight.

Earth Notes - Pine Needles

Flagstaff, AZ – We all learned in elementary school that evergreen trees don't lose their leaves. Most conifers, including majestic ponderosa pines, are evergreens. By staying green all year long, these trees can photosynthesize anytime conditions are good. They don't have to spend valuable energy adding leaves once the weather warms.

Food cost down from last year

Phoenix, AZ – A new study by the Arizona Farm Bureau Federation finds that, on
average, the cost of food is 20 percent less now than it was a
year ago. The organization's Peggy Jo Goodfellow said that
historically prices have gone up when the cost of raw commodities
and fuel go up.

(So naturally when things start coming down we're seeing a
decrease in fuel pricing. Commodity prices have gone down. We all
know that right now in the grocery store we can buy eggs, milk
and cheese for a lot less than we were paying one year go.)

Governor says some programs and services to disappear

Phoenix, AZ – The governor said the latest official prediction of $1.5 billion
in red ink is no surprise. She said that's why she directed state
agencies last month to detail what they would eliminate if their
budgets got slashed by 15 percent. But Brewer said that, unlike
prior spending reductions, the next cuts are unlikey to be across
the board.

(It will be horizontal cuts. It will not be vertical cuts any
longer. There will be probably a lot of programs that will have
to be done away with.)

problem with the current system is that when a governor quits,
dies or is forced out of office, the job goes to the secretary of
state. But that person is elected independent of the governor and
may not share the same philosophy.
