Gene Clark passes reports"Few people in Quartzsite don't know Gene Clark, 72, or his 1940 'Tweety Bird' Ford with which he won many local shows. His earthly journey ended early this morning following a battle with cancer. Gene's wife, Bernice, is requesting that people do not send flowers but instead give to their favorite charity. A memorial will be held in 3-4 weeks.

Why advertise, when family will do?

At the last meeting, the Town Councilmembers present ("Mayor" Lizarraga was a no show) voted to replace deceased Councilman Bob Kelley, with his controversial wife Carol. Or did they? "Machine Gun" Joe Winslow voted against the appointment, perhaps to disprove the rumor that the fix was in. But that meant that only Anderson, Jewitt and Cowell voted for Kelly, not a quorum of the council, only of those present.

Recent open records requests reveal that Jewitt filed to run in the regular election, and not the "special" election for his own seat, leaving many wondering if he is legally resigned and can even vote, or if a quorum was actually present...and who will replace mayor wannabe Jerry Lukkason? Stay tuned folks, it's bound to get more bizarre before it's over!

We don't need no stinking finance department!

Rumors are flying around town this week that the town mismanager has placed Heidi Turner, Jullie Pfieffer, and other members of the town finance dept on administrative leave, to be followed by termination on Monday. Since there are no names on payroll checks and no listing of how many are issued anymore, the people can't really know who is working there and who has replaced whom. One thing is certain, anyone who knows what's really been going on is being systemarticallybremoved from positions of access to the evidence. I predict more wrongful termination lawsuits headed our way...

Coucilman Bob Kelley kicks the bucket

Saturday, 77 year old Bob Kelley died, leaving another open seat on the council up for appointment. Kelley refused to quit smoking, against doctor's orders and it is speculated that his demise was related to ongoing health problems for which he was recently hospitalized.
