“I think that the Pinal County officials who are going after that San Tan Flat restaurant are being ridiculous. That is far from a dance hall... Actually, if they go to church, they can dance in the aisles at church if they want to.”

“Oh my God, there’s dancing in the San Tans? Anyone notice them dancing across the border?”

“Dancing should never be banned for any reason. Dancing people are happy people.”

“Why would Pinal County want to harass any business that is making $5,000 a week?”

“I don’t know who Scottsdale thinks they really are. They have no right to demand that the state do anything with their state highways just because they run through the city of Scottsdale.”

“Thank God they are going to put the cameras back on the freeway. But we need them on all of the freeways to save lives. There’s no need for people to be speeding on the freeway. The speed limit is fast enough at 65 (mph).”

“I wonder what all of the law-abiding people in the East Valley would think if someone suggested we should put up cameras on the Loop 202?”

“When is Mesa going to get another Social Security office? Waiting 2½ to three hours? That’s asinine.”

“ All of that money we are spending to build a border fence when we could have just painted the curbs red like they are doing in Mesa. Yeah, that will work.”

“So the Mesa Police Department hired a bilingual spokesperson. This is just another taxpayer’s burden because of the illegal immigrant problem.”

“I’d like to point out to the police chief of Mesa that this is, indeed, Mesa, Arizona, U.S.A. — not Mesa, Mexico. I believe those who don’t speak or understand English should be allowed to wallow in their own ignorance.”

“At the 160 mile marker on Arizona Avenue in south Chandler, the city of Chandler is spelled without an ‘l.’ Cost cutting?”

“I’ve seen mountain lions walking along the flood plains just north of University (Avenue), so it wouldn’t surprise me if they’ve made their way down to the riparian (park in Gilbert).”

“Regarding the Deamland Villa HOA: it’s the $5,000-a-month for nursing home care that’s the problem, rather than the extremely cheap $92-peryear HOA dues. Get a life, Dreamland critics, or move out.”

“Williams Gateway seems to be the only part of Mesa that exists for Mayor (Keno) Hawker.”

“I see there’s a new restaurant at a prime location on Main and Center (streets) for Mesa Art Center patrons. I guess the venter who saw only a Taco Bell several blocks away has a glass that’s half-empty.”

“Stick to your guns, Verde Groves homeowners board. Tear the wall down.”

TALKING POINT

“The crystal is the symbol of an earth-based religion. How can the Red Cross say its new symbol is religion neutral?”
