Our society today relies heavily on the use of computers. The work force practically mandates the use of computers in most types of jobs, we send letters and communicate via e-mail, schools ask students to research topics and type reports, and computer games are almost limitless.

Spice, K2, Genie, Ultra, Summit, Blonde, Yucatan Gold, Bombay Blue, Black Mamba: These exotic sounding names are just a few of the many brands of synthetic cannabinoids that are showing up in our community and around the nation.

A safety message from the City of Mesa's Energy Resources Department…
Community safety and the safety of its employees is the primary priority of Mesa’s Energy Resources Department, but please remember that energy safety is everyone’s responsibility:
October is Crime Prevention Month and also the month in which Halloween is celebrated. Learn how to celebrate both together.
Although children look forward to tricks, treats, and ghoulish garb, Halloween can be fraught with fright for parents, with candy given to their kids by strangers and a legion of masked and costumed trick-or-treaters at the door. However, following a few safety tips can ensure safe fun for kids and candy-givers alike.
Each year, law enforcement agencies, citizens, community groups, and government agencies join together in October for Crime Prevention Month. Whether your community has been hit by a new crime trend or mortgage foreclosure, or your block club or neighborhood watch program needs revitalizing, planning a safety event this October for Crime Prevention Month is a great way to keep your community safe, meet new partners, and make a difference in your community.
