Hi-Desert Star Column for Copper Mountain Mesa, November 10, 2016

Our little Community is on the brink of a very important election of our own. It’s time to elect new Copper Mountain Mesa Community Association Board members, as well as decide who will be our next President and Vice Presidents.

I am writing this article on the morning after the Nation’s Presidential election. As I do not have TV, I kept an eye on things via internet overnight, as I finished my Communication essay and did my readings for class. First thing this morning I checked my computer and it was true, it wasn’t a nightmare: Donald Trump won the 2016 United States Presidential election.

Obviously, the majority of American voters wants to stick with the “Me first; I’m right; my wealth, my god; my rules; my skin color: all is right-wing conservative-alrighty in my country. The rest of the world, climate change etc., can just go away and stop being so damned annoying”. I must confess, I am astounded, disappointed and dismayed. I know what the Global Community thinks of our presidential choice!

There is one bright light, people! Marijuana is now sort-of legal in California. Let’s go medicate ourselves into oblivion and we won’t care who our president is or what direction he takes our beloved America in. We’ll have our pot and pills; won’t have to worry about a thing!

Okay, onward ever onward. If you’re around this weekend, join us at the Community Center at 65336 Winters road, on Saturday November 12th from 1 p.m. for the final Board meeting of the fiscal year. My two terms as Madame President are over and I sincerely thank everyone for giving me the opportunity to serve my beloved Community.
Young, tech-savvy needed
The General Membership Meeting which follows at 2 p.m. will vote to fill three seats: mine, as well as Mary Helen and Steve Tuttle’s . We are calling on Neighbors to step up, address the issues and help lead the Center. It’s time for change; we need younger minds with innovative, workable solutions, technologically savvy, with a clear direction for the Community of Copper Mountain Mesa. See you at the Meeting; stay well!
