Here we go with the same nonstop nonsense the good people of Kingman & Mohave have to put up with everytime they open the newspaper. The majority disagrees with the decision about zero groundwater water use but fortunately we have fine elected Representatives like Mayor Salem working dilligently to secure the effluent needed to provide for operation of the Hualapai Valley solar project. It's clean & it's green renewable energy and it will put thousands back to work, off the unemployment line in which we all pay for.

The Mayor and all others who are working tirelessly to make this happen deserve a big thumbs up for their efforts.

Keep up the great work Mayor Salem and that goes for all other elected officials who are striving to bring a better future to Mohave County.

Absolutely, Hualapai should appeal the decision. This project will bring a wealth of prosperity to the region.

As someone else said, what are those two blogger women over at the Daily Minor saving "ALL" of "OUR" huge water reserves for? 8 or 9 hundred Nuclear Energy Plants? Or are they drafting their own plans to use "OUR" millions upon millions of acre feet? It really is ridiculous, 2 selfish newspaper bloggers trying to infringe upon all citizens property rights. It's a sin.

In the mean time we have a great Mayor and others who are very optimistic about the ability to provide enough wastewater or effluent to the new facility. We know you can do this Mayor and we all applaud your efforts. When Hualapai starts construction next year it will be an awesome sight and another giant step toward keeping the Mohave County unemployment rate at bay.

Even though most of us have lives outside of chat rooms and newspaper comments sections we are still here in support. The silent majority is behind you 100%.

Big thumbs up Pam,, very well said.

And once again the Kingman Daily Miner got it all wrong. So what else is new.

Look at the headline they put out...."Hualapai must be dry to fly" talk about deceptive?? I have no idea where they got that info or who at the paper told her to print it but let's get the facts straight here, nobody ever said that. And here's the sad part, if someone who doesn't have the time to follow the story read it they might think it was true...

I hope they use ground water and when people start realizing that their water rates are going through the roof because the water is getting scarce, the supporters of this can tell their children that they screwed their future over. Take a look at Vegas, this is what happens when people don't look at the whole picture or are too corrupt to care and just build.

They already had to correct the article for content errors once and who knows how many more times before the higher ups over there get it right. I'm waiting for the day when the reporters tell the bosses their not spinning stories anymore and just publish the truth for a change. I't s dream of everyone's that someday this will happen but in this economy I'm sure they fear for their jobs if they stand up for what's right.

Please tell me your not serious with that nonsense routine.

And if we don't start using some of the enormous wealth of underground resorces for job creation your children will have to seek employment elsewhere because they will have no future in Kingman. So I guess either way it dosen't really matter now does it? And that's your true agenda right? try and create a false catch 22 which is perpetrated by the ninmby's - raid - and their partners in crime over at the Miner. It's been going on for years now.

It's definitely gonna be used by somebody, and I sure as heck can't think of a better use for it than to create jobs for the unemployed and the kids,, plus on top of that, Kingman is on the cutting edge and earns a reputation for doing it's fair share to mitigate climate change and possibly SAVE a few childrens lives along the way. Didn't think of it that way did you.

So I guess you just want it to sit there so you can maybe drill a hole a stare at it, maybe throw a few pebbles in and watch it splash.

Mayor Salem is working hard and everyone supports him and all others working for us. I have faith that this project will happen, the Mayor is very confident and that's a good thing. When construction begins and hard working folks are back on the job it's gonna be a great sight to see, very heart warming.

That is just plain retarded way of looking at things, it's never intelligent to use a natural resource to create jobs because a resource is not something that will last forever. You want jobs, Kingman is in the perfect spot for manufacturing, there is rail and truck service, the airport could be used for airfreight and a low tech community to provide menial workers, all you need to do is get the P & Z to quit making potential companies jump through so many hoops to get established here. The solar plant is only going to provide a lot of jobs to build it, once thats done technical people will be brought in to maintain the plant, believe me, I know exactly how it's all going to be implemented and it is already in the works, if you think your going to have a full time career your kidding yourself, but dreaming is a way to escape reality.

Appealing the decision is essential.
Once again the "Water" excuse card is played over and over by a few nimby's and the Miner supports sham perpetrated by this handful of radicals time and time again. When will they just tell Mohave County the truth? be honest for a change. It's not the water now and it never was. They don't want CHANGE and that's the bottom line. Water is the perfect excuse I guess.

Even though this has everything to do with trying to stop progress and prosperity for all and nothing to do about water why not be fair? If property owners in Mohave are not allowed to use water extracted from their land, let's turn off the water spicket that leads to the Kingman Daily Minor bloggers homes? I think that's reasonable. And I think that goes for the Minor as well. I know the project will be built using effluent per our upstanding Mayor but the decision needs to be appealed as a matter of principal in support of everyone who owns property all over this country.

The Headline above this page is untrue.

"Hualapai must be dry to fly"

The Solar facility doesn't have to be "dry" so to speak. They just can't use groundwater under the land that the company will own for cooling purposes. According to the Mayor the solar field will get the necessary effluent so the green facility will be built. Thanks to everyone for making this project happen. It's a great project for Kingman and all the families who will get jobs like these very soon.

I can't tell you how happy I am to see the Hualapai solar energy farm approved! Thanks to everyone who are building it. And my grandkids who will be working there thank u too!

It's approved and will be built that's the main thing. A great time for Kingman & Mohave!

They have the all important CEC and the sooner they start building the better. I know several friends who are struggling through this economic trough. You don't know how delighted I am to see them finally get back to work and put food on the table. Both are just waiting for the chance to apply and get off unemployment! Everyone did a fantastic job and thank god we have companies like Hualapai solar investing in our community!

Absolutely, I can't understand what all that water is being hoarded for either. We are fortunate to have millions of acre feet right here in the county. Several massive underground lakes. Most cities in the United States wish they had the water we have. If we don't use it for green energy projects that create jobs and clean the environment, or nice new residential communities, what else do we use it for?
But anyway, I also know many good folks who will be applying for jobs at Hualapai Solar. When it's built with effluent what's the next excuse or complaint the small handful of selfish newspaper Bloggers are going to use? They don't want job creation and that's the bottom line, at least not within 50 miles or so.

Now that the solar field will use only effluent and two women got exactly what they wanted I guess we can all look forward to their support via blogging in the newspaper. Now they can stand right along side the majority of good hearted decent residents and start talking positive about normal things like job creation and a better quality of life for all.

I think everyone that has responded to this is a complete IDIOT do you not know that we are using way to much sun light already.... You are using up my grandkids sunlight. I think we should all think ahead and understand that sunlight is going to fade as time goes by. I love Jim Lyska's ass

I know your just being a little sarcastic but believe it or not that's probably the two newspaper Bloggers next excuse!! The sunlight disappears roughly 3 billion years from now!

Anyway, I'm just happy to see it built. They should be able to use the water under the land they will own but at this point let's just start building and put hundreds of hard working and hungry folks back to work.

That's funny, how long do you think your job will last, once it's built do you think you'll be on full time?, as what, a janitor, once it's built they will be looking for technical people to operate and repair the plant, in Kingman a technical person is someone that aligns their junk cars in an isosceles triangle pattern in their front yard. They will most likely do what other plants have done, they will import technical & mechanical people from other areas.

Wow, you sound just like that uptight Blogger woman over at the newspaper. No matter what happens you always have complaint. Live and let live. It will be a job and that's the important part.

Plus it's not your property anyway. If you don't need a job good for you. When Hualapai builds and starts hiring soon the market will take care of itself.

Yep, another Kingman representative, so what if my teeth are rotten, my pick up truck is 6 feet off the ground and I look cool with my hand riding on top of the steering wheel while I drive and my woman is only 300 pounds but she's happy with her hostess ding dongs.
