Pima County Renews Water Station Funds

Thank you for continuing to save lives by showing that there is still compassion in the region.
Pima County has approved a grant of $25,000 to help a humanitarian group maintain emergency water stations in the Sonoran Desert outside of Tucson.

Tuesday, the county Board of Supervisors voted 4-1 to fund Humane Borders' 90-plus water stations dispersed in the desert.

The supervisors first funded the water stations in 2001.

To the readers here, you can support Humane Borders' efforts by visiting their website and donating.

Meanwhile, I'll be writing four of my county supervisors expressing my pride in their actions. The lone dissenting vote, on the other hand, will get a howler.
