(June 25, 2016) 

As I mentioned in the last update about my Public Records lawsuit against the Arizona Corporation Commission (ACC), the judge had released to me all the unredacted documents that he got from the ACC. That put the ACC lawyers into a tizzy.

A word about the ACC lawyers: One of them is the ACC’s new “ethics officer.” Seems to me if he had any he never would have taken this case on and tried to defend the indefensible. The other two lawyers are from an outside firm the ACC hired because I guess the “ethics officer” just wasn’t enough protection against a college drop-out (me) armed only with the truth. God only knows what these three are costing taxpayers. Whatever it is, it’s a total waste. Read More→

Today’s Photo from Ted Grussing Photography: Cool

… I’m ready for cool and clean air neither of which is currently resident here … but it is here, high surf near Monterey, California … never tire of the ocean or water in general. More triple digit weather through the weekend too … thinking fly high in temps in the 40’s and then drive up to the Flagstaff area and spend a day. Given the current air quality I’m thinking that being in the Snow Bowl parking lot at sunset should be spectacular with the sun setting behind Kendrick Peak. Think it shall be a nice weekend!

… it is out there in the open for all to see, and hopefully not too many people will be watching as you land once, twice and thrice … I saw this guy doing it and not sure how many saw me do it a few days ago … I had an excuse (I think) as I had a 40 degree cross wind 11kt gusting 19kt. All my landings were good just like this guys were and the best was the last one when it stuck … his did too.
