·        Yavapai County Sheriff Scott Mascher: Gun Control - I have received many questions and concerns from our public and YCSO staff about recent gun control issues.
As your Sheriff, I have taken an oath of office to support and uphold the Constitution of the United States, and to protect the people of Yavapai County. I take this oath seriously.
Now we have politicians that want to prevent millions of law abiding, honest Americans from owning certain firearms and magazines because of the mentally ill and violent criminal offenders.
I do not believe that extreme acts of violent criminal behavior should ever misguide a politician into enacting orders or laws that would take away Constitutional Rights and Liberties from law-abiding Americans.
As Sheriff, I refuse to participate or cooperate with any unconstitutional order that will infringe upon our 2nd amendment rights.

·        Message From Salt River Project Councilman Mark Lewis:  Today’s EPA ruling on our largest coal fired power plant at Navajo Generation Station was very negative.
Basically the EPA wants us to put a 1.1 billion dollar catalytic converter on the plant. The City of LA is walking away from their share of the plant.
We originally planned to upgrade this plant in 2065, but the Obama Administration moved that timeline up to the next 56 months. This will crush the farmers, tribal water users, chip makers and residents of the metro Phoenix and Tucson areas.
CAP estimated that prices could rise more than 30% for all water and power users in the 2 big cities of Phoenix and Tucson. It may go higher.
We need to organize protests at the up coming public meetings like we did last summer and make sure the EPA knows how we feel about our electric prices and our jobs.
We need to ask the legislature to join energy consumers in filing suit against the EPA when the rules finalize in April 2013. Summer power bills are heading up thanks to the EPA.
We have no oil, no gas, no choice. We have to use coal / nuclear because that what we have! Solar can help but it does not work at 10 pm at night in July.
Please plan on attending meetings and writing emails for us in the next 90 days to let the EPA know how we feel. - Mark Lewis, Councilman Salt River Project -District 7, 602-499-3095
