·        UPDATE: Reports came in last night that the Maricopa County Republican Committee (MCRC) Sgt-at-Arms Barbara Medal was prohibited from attending the Sept 2 MCRC EGC meeting  because AZGOP officials wouldn’t allow her on the premises have been confirmed. Reports were confirmed this morning  that she was informed that she was ban from the building and was “trepassing” prior to the start of the meeting.  You may recall that Medal filed a report with the Phoenix Police Department following the August  EGC meeting incident when  Medal requested that - someone with one of AZGOP Chairman Robert Graham’s staffer’s - stop flashing a camera too close to EGC member’s faces.  Reports that circulated late last night that Graham had a restraining order on Medal are unconfirmed.

·       Senator Sylvia Allen- Bad Idea: Two new national monuments are being proposed for Arizona:   The Grand Canyon Watershed – 1.7 million acres, and The Sedona Verde Valley Red Rock – 180,000 acres including the town of Sedona. Arizona has:

ü   the third highest total designated wilderness acreage in the United States at 4.5 million acres and

ü  another 5.8 million acres affected by special land use designations including 18 national monuments (more monuments than other states.)

Why would we:

ü  give up more Arizona land and increase the oversite, regulation, and restrictions on the people and businesses of this state?

ü  give more control of our water to the Federal Government?

ü  support locking up thousands of acres of state trust land within the proposed monument boundaries?

ü  impact private property and support the Red Rock Monument boundaries around Sedona? 

Supporting politicians think it will give them big green election money donations. Citizens think it will bring higher level of protection for the environment. We have numerous laws and regulations, including the National Environmental Policy Act, the Federal Land Policy and Management Act, the Archaeological Resources Protection Act, Forest Service Management Plan.  We don’t need another layer of regulations.  The Federal Government has some of the worst-managed lands in the country; local control gives local protection.  Try dealing with someone 2000 miles away! Rising tourism dollars is not a good reason either.  How can you increase tourism to a place that is already saturated with visitors? What can you do?

ü  Write to the Arizona Congressional Delegation and President Obama and say NO to both monuments.

ü  Lobby your local government in the Verde Valley or near the Grand Canyon.  Let them know you do not support the monuments.

ü  Write letters to papers, post on Facebook and email  your list.

It is a menace that many assumed was relegated to the past: an aggressive, militarily capable Russian state that is ruled by an anti-American autocrat, hostile to our interests, dismissive of our values, and seeking to challenge the international order that U.S. leaders of both parties have maintained for seven decades.” – U.S. Sen John McCain in The Wall Street Journal today.

·       Must see:  Saving America  By Retired Adm. James A.
