Why isn't Sheriff White on top of this. Put a camera somewhere with a microphone and he will jump in front and comment on the problem. He will claim that the problem was worse before he became sheriff and that the problem is illegals.

Throughout the west, for centuries, more people have fought and died over water and water rights than anything else, including fighting over women, horses and cattle.

Drought will only get worse if we do not tackle global warming.

I don't care for coolaid, thanks anyway.

So the polar ice caps are supposed to be melting?
And we will lose the polar bears because their melting is part of a natural cycle?

One can see water trucks in broad daylight At any time of day tapping the hydrant on 66 entering Tieras.

Send a cope over there and make an easy bust.

Geez, the cops run a speed trap at this location from time to time.

You'd think they could catch the water thieves working in broad daylight.

Electric....yea, it is a natural cycle. What's so hard to understand? This has been going on since the beginning of time. Why all of a sudden are people freaking out about it?
This global warming crisis is nothing more than hype from those who are making a profit off it. Boy, are they ever, too! Just look at Al Bore. Long as people like you keep up the hype he'll be rolling in the dough!Too bad you got sucked into it! But it's not too late to get your head screwed on right!

I still don't know where the water is going to! Who could you sell it to? Unless it's being halted Southward!

Chavez says the village has had to raise water rates to make up for the missing water.
This tells you that the village is more concerned about the revenue they may lose than they are about the residents basic need for water.

Isn't a water truck pretty easy to spot?
Anyone who's ever driven East on 66 towards Tijeras around noon time has seen water tankers filling up at the hydrant.

There are plenty of people living in East mountain who must have water trucked in.

I'm sure some of these water tankers are making easy money selling stolen water.

APD should go after the trucks filling up at the hydrant along 66 instead of running a speed trap.

Who would question these trucks filling up at a hydrant anyway?

As far as most people are concerned, its just another state government operation.

Stealing water close to Tijeras and hauling it a short distance and selling to East Mountain residence would be an easy scam.

Well. If that's true...well. It is not all right with me, for the poles to thaw, etc. It simply isn't okay.

Mommy Nature did not check with me first!

Seriously, though. I think there's something to the global warming theory. I'm trying to make my home as green as possible, and to have as much water collection as possible, to try to save my trees, shrubs, roses. Maybe if I live to be extremely old, I'll be collecting rainwater for drinking. I think we could be heading into such conditions. Hope I'm wrong. But I'm worried.

The Mayor of Tijeras says this is water theft is stealing from the "taxpayers" when as I understand it, people there pay for their water; therefore she meant citizens. Another dumb Chavez mayor. Mayor Chavez indeed,
