  1. Actually no Goldfinger, it had great support from the towns around here. Tubac, Amado, Tumacacori and others werre very happy about it. If you look at the Heritage link posted you will find that Heritage areas attract tourism.....more money. Also there is a large population of Mexican Americans living south of Tucson. What "Heritage" do you think will be most supported? You have the De Anza Trail that goes right through the Heritage area and from those I have spoken to, they are loving this. None of the part time prospectors where even aware of this happening and there are a lot more business owners than there are prospectors. It passed easily. This is also happening all over America. Obama passed into legislation many other "Heritage areas" lately. Bush did too!
  2. http://www2.nau.edu/~rcb7/tert_paleogeog_az.html Here is some info
  3. Well thats partly right. But I live right smack dab in the middle of it, in Amado. The border patrol will still be here and funds are now being passed for the new and improved check point. I have attended all the meetings in Tubac about it and unless there is some underlying theme, its going through. They also just sent an extra 432 border patrol agents to this area about a month ago. But in studying the the laws, I think Regmaglitch will be right about the prospecting and Metal detecting. They will want to protect the Heritage of the area.......thats mexican Heritage of course. Again thank Raul Grijalva for this one.
  4. Here is the link to the NHA: http://www.nps.gov/history/heritageareas/LEG/index.htm
  5. H.R.324 - To establish the Santa Cruz Valley National Heritage Area, and for other purposes. H.R.324 Also tagged in: Historic sites and heritage areas, Public lands and natural resources Latest Action: 02/04/2009 - Referred to the Subcommittee on National Parks, Forests, and Public Lands. Bill Text To establish the Santa Cruz Valley National Heritage Area, and for other purposes. 1/8/2009--Introduced. Santa Cruz Valley National Heritage Area Act - Establishes the Santa Cruz Valley National Heritage Area in Arizona. Requires the Santa Cruz Valley Heritage Alliance, Inc. as the local coordinating entity for the Area, to prepare and submit a management plan for such Area. ********************************************* As this requires the Santa Cruz Valey Heritage Alliance, Inc to come up with the "management plan" for the area, it has yet to be determined about nugget shooting and Meteorhunting. Now the SCV Heritage Alliance has partnered up with the Desert Archaeology, Inc That doesnt sound too promising for us, as are they going to allow non Archaeologists to be digging up the ground? Well, we'll see! http://www.desert.com/ By the way....Raul Grijalva the congressman that introduced this bill, is the same Grijalva that voted "NO" to take away ACORNS Gov funding. After all that has been found to go on with that organization........owinell did he vote for ACORN to keep the funding? Geeeesh
  6. http://www.tucsoncitizen.com/ss/local/66845.php http://www.azstarnet.com/sn/hourlyupdate/207990.php This is another part of the Consolidated Natural Resources Act of 2008 passed by Bush. I am currently looking at laws for "Heritage" areas. But if it follows like the others, its yet another Federal and grab. I currently live right in the middle of this area. Also please let me add to this with H.R. 1925. It would Eliminate Motorized and Mechanized Access to Over 9 Million Acres of Public Land in UT.
  7. Not bad!,,,ugly but who cares? Looks like you could carry a lot with it too.
  8. Amen, people either refuse to or do not realize that Democrats held the majority for the last 2.5 years of Bushes term. While he dd his damage too, the groundwork was laid out by the Majority. Barney, Harry and Nancy......the 3 stooges.
  9. I bought a 92' Chevy Blazer 4x4 a couple of months ago. I havent taken it in any terrain that is too rough yet, as its got some street tires on it and I want to get some better ones. But I cant wait until I do.
  10. El, what a great set of pics! Did you take those? Really great job and informative too. I have to ask, was the picture labeled "Some great shoring" meant to be sarcastic? Mind now that you know much more than I do about the subject, but it looked rickity to me. Is that not the case? Thaks again for the great pics! :wubu:
  11. The pic came out great Max and what a great nugget. I wish I was up there with you in the Idaho mtns. It sounds great.
  12. As others have said, attitude is everything. You have the right one. Live everyday and make everyday a lifetime.
