Bits and Pieces
Water Flows But Key Colorado Reservoirs Not Replenishing
Oro Valley Water's Phil Saletta reported to the water commission last week that, though the flows of water are strong the main reservoirs of the Colorado River, Lakes Mead and Powell, are not replenishing. They remain at 39% and 51% capacity, respeceively. It would take several years of strong "upper basin" flows to cause a significant increase in the levels of these critical reservoirs.

The Oro Valley Police Department has investigated this case and has identified Torey Reinhardt as the suspect. Reinhardt is a 26-year old white male, 5'09" and 150 lbs. He is wanted for numerous counts of trafficking in stolen property and 3rd degree burglary.
If anyone knows Reinhardt's whereabouts you are asked to call 911, 88-crime or (520) 229-4900." (Source: Oro Valley Press Release)

Some PIMA County Supervisors "Buy Votes" Using Your Money
We rarely post regarding the activities of the the Pima County Board of Supervisors. County Supervisors are using your tax money to make private donations. As Supervisor Ally Miller noted, doing this is nothing more than "vote buying." Shouldn't the county be using surplus money to fix their roads? Want to learn more?
