The so-called Payday Loan âReformâ Act would allow the payday lenders to bleed hard-working Arizonans with 400% interest rates. Forever.The payday lending industry doesnât want you to know it, but when it comes to protecting your pocketbook at the ballot box this November, ânoâ will mean âyes.â
A âNOâ vote on the payday industryâs Prop 200 will mean âyesâ to capping payday loans at 36% interest once and for all.

I’ve been working at the Liberty Market in downtown Gilbert.Â I am so excited for this restaurant to open.Â It will be part market honoring the history of the building and part restaurant.Â Liberty Market has a Renato wood burning pizza oven; and the restaurant will also serve fresh salads, paninis and sandwiches, as well as beer and wine.Â There is a real espresso bar with a focus on the art of espresso. The business will be open from breakfast to late night; and it also offers free Wi-Fi.
It’s been a strange few weeks around here with the insect observation.Â I’ve had a rather intimidating sized spider living above our door, her three foot web strung tightly between the palm and the grapefruit tree. I’ve left her alone because I am weary of the mosquitos.Â She could easily straddle a half dollar.
Tonight, we noticed a three-inch-long green dragonfly by the outside lamp.Â Dragonflies also eat mosquitos, and their larvae eat mosquito larvae. Crazy, eh? Look at those wings!
