Excellent point; the SCHOOLS are definitely strained to the breaking point, also, Perry -- ANOTHER down side to the population surge few people have thought about.

2 things that I neglected to mention in my letter is both our increasingly VERY strained WATER and POWER supplies. We've been in a drought situation for a number of years now -- even before this alarming population surge happened. Plus, we had a 27-hour+ power outage -- what? -- 9 years a…

Since I've already been unfairly accused of this once already this week, let me state, first and foremost, that never once in my Jan. 13 letter did I attack or otherwise dismiss the often VERY valuable and lasting effects that AA, NA, and Al-Anon of had over the years for many people ... in…
