This is the traditional time to look back at the past year’s news and vote for the top stories.
From this side of the computer, the F-35 story wins hands down. The effort and expense to expose the clandestine efforts of the local politicos to land the noisy fighter jet was massive.
Other topics we covered:
–Snow season and Mayor Bieter’s ongoing attempt to do away with the ACHD.
–The sports stadium plans and resulting opposition.
–Growth continues to dominate the Valley and cause heartburn for school districts strapped for cash.
–Developers continue to seek (and often receive) concessions to create urban sprawl.
–Governments continue to offer corporate welfare to businesses to locate in the area, forcing taxpayers to fund growth.
–Of course the Trolley Folly, Desire Named Street Car scam raised its ugly head again for a mere $111 million along with the usual assortment of “surveys.”
