Looks like dust was our let concern!
Have you folks seen the van loads and bus of illegal aliens hauled in and out everyday to work the fields?

Did you get turned down for a job? Bet you didn't even get off your a$$ and try. At least somebody was willing to get off their a$$es to ensure good food didnt go to waste.
Drive by that place a lot, didn't see any locals standing out there looking for work. Economy must be booming in Golden Valley to let them bring in outside labor or is it just easier to bitch than to organize local out of work labor so they don't have to bus in labor.
Somebody needs to pick it.

To bad green houses with hydroponics aren't used. That would get rid of the dust problems and reduce water usage.

can anyone spell "farm subsidy"? How how about land tax break for farm land? The man is no fool...

Five new developments I wonder about:
1) Kingman Farms is saying it is under new management. They let go the workers and put ads in the Phoenix paper for new ones, room & board provided.
2) Rumor has it that Rhodes is interested in getting new wells in the area. Thus the farming? 3) Monsanto protection act is on hold, which allowed GMO's, even if court action was involved. Possibly testing GMO's, as Shirley says?
4) Work suddenly stopped in one area after a recent article in the local paper. Why?
5) Rumors around town of largescale livestock & poultry operations coming in. Any validity to the rumors?

Not sure what to think, so putting out questions. Just trying to figure out how this all works together. I have never met Mr. Rhodes personally, just have been in the area for the last 35 years, and am interested in sorting this out in my own mind. You all seem to know about this, so asking you. Thanks.

Rhodes has started farming over off stockton hill rd about mile marker 22. you have to go down to the far side of the mountain to see all that is going on as you can't see it from stockton hill rd. Looks like Buckhorn road is the border, just look for the newly graded rd. He has plowed 640 acres and is installing wells and giant diesel gen sets. In all he has purchased 2000 acres and looks to develope all of it. Irrigation has been installed.

Have you driven by lately to see all the squash rotting in the fields? Why wasn't it picked?

yeah I saw them a while back. You obviously haven't been around farms have you? They pick the good produce, not every single one and even after their picked they can be tossed to the side if not worth keeping. Customers purchase by weight and they don't want to pay for bad product. And what does rotting produce become anyways? Fertilizer!

I am a property owner in Golden Valley and I am in favor of any new development in the area which will improve the infrastructure, provided it does not create a water shortage or devalue the land. This valley has remained in a state of flux for many years and it is time for people to be more receptive to the idea of bringing in new industry that will promote employment for the residents. It is just my opinion but I can not see the logic in rejecting the idea of incorporation simply because it will raise the property tax; the benefits would seem to out weigh any negative aspects, personally I would like to see electricity, phone lines , water and paved roads for the entire community. What are your thoughts??
