When the goin’ gets tough


As predicted in Que Pasa? last week, Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu is dropping out of the Congressional race and lowering his sights to reelection as your sheriff.

Babeu and his spokespeople spent the majority of last week denying reports he would quit the Congressional race, but as the sun rose Friday morning, Babeu’s aspirations of being a Congressman sank out of sight as he was forced to face the obvious.

Wage laws hurt young and poor

President Obama this year has been mak­ing noise about wanting to hike the federal minimum wage to $9 per hour and then in­dexing the wage to inflation. That means the hourly wage would go up every time the cost of living goes up.

The latest Gallup poll finds that over 75 percent of Americans would support raising the hourly minimum wage to $9. Voters in New Jersey backed up that data earlier this month when they voted to raise the Garden State’s minimum wage to $8.25 and tie future increases to inflation.

“Most Qualified” Constable

There is a Constable Candidate that makes the self proclamation that they are the “Most Qualified” Candidate in their ads. While I strongly disagree with that statement, I am curious why a Candidate thinks you (the voter) are not smart enough to make that determination for yourself and that they must tell you they are the “Most Qualified” Candidate.

Writer: Walsh has done an excellent job for county

I have received robo-calls from the Babeu campaign attacking Jim Walsh, our Pinal County attorney. Not only are these calls possibly a violation of campaign laws but the very nature of the unfounded accu­sations and lies shows the gutter level of pol­itics Mr. Babeu practices.

With Current Staffing Levels I Can No Longer Fulfill Promise of Faster Emergency Response Times

Our population continues to grow in Pinal County, even in a down economy. New families are relocating in the faster growing cities of Maricopa and Casa Grande, yet it doesn't compare to unincorporated San Tan Valley. The 2010 census counts 81,321 San Tan residents and current estimates show 90,000 or more.

Why would Dr. Fuller take Mr Allee away??

I discovered yesterday that it was announced at my children's school, Walker Butte K-8, that Dr. Fuller would be moving our principal, Mr. Allee, to Florence K-8.  The reason given was he was needed there to strengthen that school.   The information was only given to the staff, and I found out through a friend that works there (I will not mention any names so I do not get anyone in trouble) However, I expect that on Monday the entire community will find out.

Glad to See that the Town of Florence has Chosen to do the Right Thing

I am glad to see that the town of Florence has chosen to do the right thing and rescind their annexation ordinances.

Most of the people who followed the facts of the case and examined the requirements of the law did not think Florence had any choice but to rescind the ordinances. Apparently, so did the town of Florence.

The name of Martyn’s current game is this:  DISTRACTION!
