Quartzsite breaking news

Mayor Foster has called a special meeting for Tuesday morning at 9 am.
On the agenda is "Discussion and possible action to declare that a state of emergency exists in Quartzsite, AZ (Open for public discussion)

Since AG Tom Horne issued a press release stating that "we are prepared to say that, based on review of a video of a July 10 meeting, there is reasonable cause to believe that there has been a violation of the Open Meeting Law, inasmuch as the public was excluded." the actions taken at that "secret" meeting are therefore legally null and void and must be reratified by the council. Now, thanks to Mayor Foster, Quartzsite Councilmembers and staff will be able to plead their case to the citizens and make it a lawful decision on whether angry emails created an "emergency" as defined by town code.

Here's the link to the most recent story on Quartzsite by CBS News in Yuma, discussing Assistant Town Manager Al Johnson's "contempt of court" :
There will be an exclusive interview on tonight's newscast at 10 pm with QPOA President Will Ponce.

Oath Keepers Founder Stewart Rhodes responded by saying " If Chief Gilbert wants to label us "terrorists" simply for keeping our oaths to defend the Constitution, by using our natural right of free speech in support of good police officers who refused unlawful orders, and if he is going to label us "terrorists" for simply exercising our First Amendment protected right to peaceably assemble and petition government for a redress of grievances, - all rights that GOOD MEN fought and died to preserve - well then, all I have to say is "we're your huckleberries" Chief. See you in Quartzsite folks! Our forefathers are watching.


  1. ....He's out there operating without any decent restraint, totally beyond the pale of any acceptable human conduct. And he is still in the field commanding troops.

    ....Well, you see .... things get confused out there. Power, ideals, the old morality, and practical military necessity. But out there with these natives, it must be a temptation to be God. Because there's a conflict in every human heart, between the rational and irrational, between good and evil. And good does not always triumph. Sometimes, the dark side overcomes what Lincoln called "the better angels of our nature".

    Apologies to the memory of the late G.D. Spradlin, I just thought this was appropriate.

    1. POISON PEN.
      Is it just me or has the people who were replaced from the city council and police cheif gilbert of Quartzsite really shown to be mentally unstable and unfit to be a part of any type of employment of Quartzsite?
      What happened to taking repsponsibility for ones actions. Now we can blame it on PTSD, the economy, or the moon didn't align just right with mars and I didn't get enough mix in my Starbucks, what a bunch of wienies, makes me want to puke.
      No!!! I'm not joking, Alex, what a joke the town is in over it's head in debt and she don't think twice about gambling for more. Trust me when I say this, when it comes time for those debts to be called on and the holder will call when the time is right, What are all you land and businesses owners going to do?
      What the lawyers and goverment don't want to tell you is this, they have set this up hoping to get in on the spoils of war! 2016 will or could change quartzsite for ever and no way to recover after that!
      You better get started looking into this town's main reasource of income. It could be gone.
      Better let up on the destruction of revenue and cut taxes, other places are eyeballing the resources of revenue.
