By   /  January 25, 2013  /  General Posts  /  2 Comments

In the 12 years this blog has been published, I have begrudgingly learned the hard way that this publication is best served with some sort of balance. I started 12 years ago wanting to give another perspective to the news and happening of the Basin that was not that of the social elite that dominate […]
