Germann Rd is pronounced “Jer-MAIN”, the way that particular family said it. Don’t move here and tell us we say things wrong. Take time to learn our history. Then, if you don’t like how we say things, go back to where you came from.

Tempe dam finally broke.  Maybe when they install the new bladders they will put an awning over them so they can’t complain the sun is breaking down the rubber.  Better yet - build a pedestrian bridge over the dam so you can go around the lake without going up along the street.

I want to start robbing banks but I can’t come up with a good nickname.

Now that Florida has pulled out of the Cubs deal, will Mayor Scott Smith still give them $50 million hard-earned, taxpayer dollars? In 10 years that land could be worth 3-4 times as much as it would be now at “fire-sale” prices. I mean $50 million must be a “drop in the bucket” to the Ricketts family that has 3 thousand million dollars (3 billion).

We need a stupid hiker law similar to the stupid driver law!  These absolute idiots who go hiking in these conditions should pay for their rescue! More than likely, they need assistance in other areas also, as they obviously are not very bright!
