This last decade saw the highest average temperatures worldwide. These rising temperatures have significantly effected the sugar content of the world's wines. This could have a profound effect on one's health if one drinks wine. A higher sugar content leads to diabetes and does not promote heart health as do the more acidic wines. I won't bore all of you with the chemistry at this time. This is but one example of Mother Nature's elegant subtleties that I referred to earlier. More to come.

If all the liberals are so great why did not you stay the great liberal bastion, Calif? You have a most obnoxious desire to tell how people to live. That is a true liberal.

Villa man, the world desperately needs to curtail its greenhouse gas production soon, despite the additonal amounts the volcanoes spew out. I don't mean to be mean. It's just a survival instinct I have for future generations and the precious ocean phytoplankton that do the bulk of our earth's breathing for us. In seventy-five years, if this world hasn't developed the proper technology to adequately combat this problem, all the firefighters in this world will not prevent us from asphyxiating ourselves. The cumulative pH levels in the world's wines are changing significantly to our detriment. That's just pure scientific fact. Let's all bring back some common sense into our reasoning process here before its too late.

If you ask the folks that lent him the 500 million they would say he made nothing out of something. I have also found that if the word madness is used in the description in any way, stay away.

How long before JR tries to amend his water agreement for residential use with the state. He will say he is saving water by taking the land out of agricultural use.

All those years and no one figured out to farm land in the desert by paying retail electric rates to pump water from deep wells. He is a genius.

Thats funny, when those folks that lent him the 500 million took him to court, they told the bankruptcy judge that the Golden Valley land purchased using their money was best left in his hands. They took all his developed property and said if anyone was going to do something with the undeveloped GV land it was Rhodes!
Maybe you should learn how to separate your hatred for the man so you don't talk out your a$$.

The water should be left in the aquifer until it's ready for residential use. Rhodes is jepardizing his long-term prospects for longevity viability. The aquifer is still of undetermined underground parameters and dimensions. 15-30 well determinations throughout the valley does not make a very accurate estimate of the actual water volume. The actual estimates can vary significantly.

James Rhodes should look deeply into his individual conscience and find the best solution to his long-term interests outside of listening to his personal business and legal advisers. I firmly believe his present actions might be led askew in the long run.

So what is the point! They did not lose a fortune?

Was best left in his hands? I don't think that happened. I thought he was the only bidder. If you bid $1.00 more they would have put it in your hands. It was worth most to him because they did not have claim to his other land around the portion in the BK

I have no animosity towards that man. This is a forum where we debate Rhodes development. If we are lucky we live long enough to see who is right and who is wrong. Those who said his GV development would go bust and those who lent him money would regret it were correct. We will see in another 5 years if golden valley becomes green valley.

You have a very aggressive style of debate. Do you really sit and laugh at your computer or is that used to try and belittle an argument without facts or reason.

Does anyone have real information on the water? There use to be a 100 year supply per the AZ water district as I understand.

What does farming entitle JR to do in terms of water?
Obviously he is a developer and not a farmer but is there some regulation that can be quoted that he is taking advantage of?

I don't know if any comments made have validity.

You have not changed a bit over the years. Full of book smarts, empty of wisdom. Wisdom comes from the God of the Bible. Ask Him for some after you ask Him who His Son is.

You still got me laughing shaking my head at your attempt a be analytical.
First off, please explain what "a real business is". I would just love to your version of it is.
Second, what i find so funny about you using "business model" is that you clearly don't understand it's use. It's real use is to attract investors into investing into an upstart business so that they feel comfortable about your ability into starting a business. Both of these guys have years of success in starting businesses, so it's rather comical to read you questioning their ability to create a "fake business"! That there is still the funniest part of all.
And finally, you obviously didn't grasp my response or the website, so me try to explain one more time.
Nothing was said about the owners passion or his receiving recognition. The point is in developing his business, he hired a guy to develop his wines who own wines were chosen to officially represent our the state of Arizona. That was a very bright move on his part in helping his business be successful. Add to that I find his labeling to be very unique and attractive. It's caters to niche market which many people like.
Time will tell in both endeavors as it does with all businesses starting out. But unless you their personal accountant or banker, you haven't a clue as to their "Business Model" or to the amount of money they are throwing out at it.
So thanks for the laugh, but I'll bet on them over your analytical skills any day.
