My husband noticed that Marshals as well as Staples will be joining the new Target and Kohl's. Anyone have any more information on new stores. I wonder what store will be going into the vacant space on the northern end in Miracle Mile Plaza?

Question Looks Like we're Moving to BHC

Hi, My Husband and I are looking to move to Bullhead City with our two young children. My Husband is a Floorcovering Installer, we hope to open a store soon. I've read allot of comments like "if you don't drink don't come Here!" My Husband is a recovering alcoholic (So PROUD of HIM) and I don't need alcohol to have fun, although we both enjoy playing Texas Holdem. One of my main concerns is our boys, How are the parks there? They are so young, would the river be a dangerous place for them to play? How about things like T-Ball, and Wrestling? Our older son will be starting School this Fall. I was hoping you could also tell me what's the "good side" of town (East, West, South, North)? Also is it always windy? Thank you so much. Hope to hear some good things.

I bought a probate condo in 1999 for 26,000. It had cost the late owner 54,000 brand new in 1984. It is located at 1190 Ramar Rd., 86442. I lived there 15 months, sold it to a couple from Michigan (Hey Bobby) for 35,000. I left to make 86% more money in Tucson. The scene at the casinos is good. I still have cravings for that 1.99 steak and eggs at the Ramada. A few double stoli grapefruits at the Riverside Sportsbook never hurt. I really liked partying with the folks from Southern California; they were a lot of fun and highly educated (about horses, anyway). There are many lowlifes there. If you would like to meet them, just go work at the public schools. The schools are a sharp contrast to the first class accomodations in Laughlin. In fact, they are quite a bit worse than some of the third world countries I have visited.

I think, if you had to work; check out Reno. If you got a pension check coming in every month, look in Laughlin, but nowadays you may be able to steal a home for 50 cents on the dollar like I did. Moderator cut: rude comments

Odd.

Having lived in both Bullhead and Tucson; I made significantly more $$$ in the former community.

I am an automotive alignment technician.

Default Bhc

I moved my twin grandsons here to BHC in 1999. They were getting in trouble in Sacto, CA and I felt this was the best for them. Neither parent was capable of caring for these beautiful boys. They brought their grades up both making the honor role every year. They both graduated last year from High School, one with honors receiving several scholarships. I believe it is the family values and what the child wants in life. Drugs are everywhere. When my girls were growing up I knew nothing about "METH". That has changed. I have seen first hand what it can do to a person and so have my grandsons. It is a growing problem but BHC is not the only town in the NATION that has this problem. It is hot here but kids are tough and seem to survive this heat. As with any city, there are faults. The only way you can tell if you like a town is to be there and see for yourself. Me, I HATE the heat but know many people that love it. Housing is a lot cheaper here then CA. Now is the best time to buy since the market is soft. Moderator cut: advertising

Moderator cut: rude MCC is a great fit for many college students in the area. Not everyone has opportunities like you to travel across the world, buy homes and attend any school they want to. Moderator cut: rude

I'm not disagreeing with the facts. I know the facts. I live here.

Moderator cut: orphaned and rude comments

You're missing the point on MCC. As made obvious through the facts you've stated in your last post (that has since been deleted), many people in BHC are unable to comfortably make ends meet. This means there are middle and high school students who are forced to help their families with bills by getting their own jobs. If some students are able to break the cycle of having to drop out of school and work at jobs that require no additional classes, then more power to them--attend MCC. Many college kids are NOT ABLE to move to Flagstaff or other cities to attend college. It's not whether or not MCC is as good as NAU. It's a matter of proximity.

I will not be replying to your posts anymore.
