My Father-in-law's half built home in Overgaard may or may not exist.
My brother has a house (?) in west Show Low. All those beautiful
trees. AZ fire the size of Metro LA, 500 sq miles. No rain in sight,
and monsoon brings lightning before the rains here in AZ. Our Senator
John McCain flew in last Friday, his sound bite on the news boiled
down to "If you just let us harvest the timber and make money, then
this wouldn't be happening". All the people on the rez, need the
trees and they harvest the timber. It's overwhelming.
