Garage Door Break Ins

Garage DoorA City of Maricopa resident recently chatted about how easy it was for a series of break-ins to occcur in the Gilbert, Arizona, area.  Although their garage door was slightly bent in at the top center, the robbery was thwarted by this simple technique.

Garage door manufacturers are changing how the emergency release is activated, but older doors still use this easy method for burgleres to enter a home.

Scotts Miracle-Gro Grows Right Here In Maricopa

Scotts Miracle-GroTom Gibbons of InMaricopa.com writes, "You know that smell, the one that sometimes wafts over Maricopa and makes you head inside. In polite society, or for publication, you would call the source of that odor agricultural waste. In real life, it’s called something else.  It doesn’t exactly smell like flowers.  But through a process that takes place on the west side of Maricopa, some of that waste eventually helps flowers bloom in Arizona, Southern California and Utah."

Why Casa Grande Needs the Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare)

The Casa Grande Hospita is hurt by unpaid bills.  The hospital provides services to thousands of uninsured residents risking the closure of the facility.

According to the Maricopa Monitor (Tuesday, October 14, 2013) - "The hospital has struggled with unpaid bills for care of $13 million in the year ending June 30, 2011, $27 million in fiscal 2012, and a staggering $42 million in fiscal 2013)."

As the funds for subsidizing these loses are drying up, it's more important than ever to have the American citizen pay for services they use through their private insurance.


Flood of 1983: Devastation & Restoration

"Rain had come to Maricopa, true enough, but not in amounts that would cause any major problems. But in the southern and eastern portions of the state in late September and early October of 1983, it poured for days, with water rushing northward through washes, tributaries and really almost anywhere it wanted to go. Safford, a small mining city in eastern Arizona, recorded nearly 12 inches of rain over a 10-day period, the result of the remnants of Tropical Storm Octave.

AirNow - Air Quality Conditions for the City of Maricopa

AirNowThe Air Quality Index (AQI) is an index for reporting daily air quality. It tells you how clean or polluted your outdoor air is, and what associated health effects might be a concern for you. The AQI focuses on health effects you may experience within a few hours or days after breathing polluted air. EPA calculates the AQI for five major air pollutants regulated by the Clean Air Act: ground-level ozone, particle pollution (also known as particulate matter), carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, and nitrogen dioxide. For each of these pollutants, EPA has established national air quality standards to protect public health.


Maricopa (Images of America Series) (Images of America (Arcadia Publishing)) [Paperback]

The Hohokam built an extensive network of canals with sticks and stone hoes, but mysteriously disappeared in 1450. Later, the Pima and Maricopa Indians occupied their farmlands near the Gila River, and Maricopa took on the name of the latter. In 1858, Maricopa became an isolated little town in the middle of the desert. It served as the major stage station for the Butterfield Overland Stage Station and became a beacon of light for trappers, traders, and immigrants brave enough to travel its unknown land. Maricopa moved south in 1879 to latch onto the newly built Southern Pacific Railroad and became Arizona's freighting distribution center. A second move took it 4 miles east to better align with Tempe. Thus began Maricopa's life as an important railroad junction, playing host to two presidents, 1911 flying machines, honeymoon couples, actors, and a nest of wildcats to entertain the hundreds of passengers who waited for their connections to Phoenix or east-west. In the early 2000s, Maricopa grew from a small farming community to a city, earning it the title of one of the fastest growing cities in the nation. Today its population continues to grow with more than 40,000 inhabitants from all over the United States and world.
