Maricopa County Board of Supervisors Chairman Clint Hickman was bursting with pride at the recent opening of a new digital recording kiosk at the Wickenburg Public Library and Learning Center, 164 E. Apache St in Wickenburg. Mayor John Cook and residents are equally pleased to have the new library open, as well. The kiosk is a time saver for residents who need County services. See Wickenburg Kiosk Officials recently unveiled the new kiosk, which allows for the convenient recording of documents without traveling to the Recorder’s Office in Phoenix or Mesa. The Digital Recording Kiosk includes a touch screen computer with the ability to scan and print documents, accept credit card payments, and interact with a member of the Maricopa County Recorder’s staff through a secure webcam. In addition to recording documents, the Kiosk offers the opportunity for Maricopa County Residents to file documents with the Maricopa County Environmental Service Department and the Air Quality Department and Planning and Development. Documents able to be filed through the Recording Kiosks include subcontractor registrations, dust permit cancellations and special event applications. “This is a geographically isolated part of the County, and this partnership goes a long way in creating a community hub that Wickenburg can be proud of,” said Hickman. “We can offer vital county services to a population up here, so that they don’t have to drive all the way back to Phoenix to get it.”
Wickenburg resident Bob Fowler, who learned to use the kiosk on opening day, said, “Oh, easy. I’m parked right there, otherwise I’d go to Surprise or downtown, but this is easy.” When you use the kiosk, you just touch the screen to start a live interactive session with an operator in downtown Phoenix area,” said Lee Ann Wade, Administrative Manager at the Recorder’s Office. “It’s really just an extension of our front counter except you aren’t at a front counter; you are in your home community.”
Job search assistance, are available at this library through resources from the Maricopa County Library District and Arizona at Work: Maricopa County.
“Our goal as an organization is to serve the unserved and underserved,” said Cindy Kolaczynski, Director of the Maricopa County Library District. “This community fits that bill specifically, and it’s great that we’re able to help them along the way in getting what they need.” See list of Maricopa County’s digital recording kiosk locations at /recorder/kiosk.

Obama’s-Muslim-Friends-Wont-Be Happy With His Daughter While Obama and his liberal media are more than happy to slut-shame Melania Trump for nude photos, it’s a different story when it’s Obama’s mother’s nude photos being circulated. But when his own daughter, Malia, goes to a concert and lifts her skirt to display her ass to the cameras the most powerful man in the world is reduced to tears over slut shaming. Barack and Michelle’s anger at having their daughter’s licentious behavior being turned back on them may end in bloodshed if Obama exercises Sharia in the White House and commits an Honor Killing to save face. Malia Obama shows off her booty to the world, Obama cries over ‘slut-shaming’ The joke may be on Obama, but Sharia is no joke as Islamists have mutilated and murdered women for centuries as lowly whores. Women under Muhammad’s Sharia Law have all the rights of second class citizens, which is a step above infidels who are third class citizens… .

Sen Pro Tem Sylvia Tenney Allen: The White Mountains and Rim Country have experienced four major internet and cell service outages over the last 2 years that have affected public safety, health services, merchant services and small businesses, as well as caused widespread inconvenience and frustration. Outages have occurred when cable lines have been cut and the service to down-line customers is interrupted until the cable line can be restored. These various outages result in safety issues as residences of the affected area were unable to use cell phones to call 911 or for other support. Hospitals experienced major stress as they had to continue critical health services. The outages also resulted in loss of business as the area merchants were unable to process debit and credit transactions because of the loss of internet access. It also affects future economic development if we do not have a secure and continuous internet service. Regions from Gila County to Apache County are joining forces to solve this critical safety and economic problem. Recently, I met with Bobby Davis, the Economic Development Specialist for the Town of Payson, and this is his number one concern for future economic growth and safety. Davis explained that they are working with REAL AZ, the economic development group comprised of Navajo and Apache Counties, and also with the various town and city leadership within the region. The goal is to establish a short-term redundancy system and a long-term broadband last mile connection so that if one area goes down, a backup takes its place, and service is not interrupted. I pledge to do all I can to help with this critical issue and to encourage the internet/cell phone companies to work out a solution and find funding for the critical work that will need to be done.
