Yes, my mom tells me it has moved. The pizza was fried and had a very crispy crust.

What a coinkydink -

I, too, moved to bear creek when I was 5. Went to Bear Creek Elementary - now the charter school. I graduated from Coughlin in 1990.

both. i love the desert scenery, and i'm into cars. arizona has a very lax vehicle code and no annual inspection. plus there is no rust here.

i love the warm winters, but i miss the snow a little. love the lack of humidity but get a little grumpy when the temperature stays above 105 for weeks on end.

my favorite part of arizona is how every type of scenery is a close drive. deserts, pine trees, oak trees and grassy meadows can all be seen in a few hour drive. i'm dying to get up north and see some elk, and the are hundreds of thousands of acres of national forest to enjoy. fishing, hunting, boating, 4 wheeling and hiking are all available, state funded and supported.

i miss my hometown for the good food, the feeling of the first warm day after a long winter, and the security i felt there. i miss being able to hop in a car and head any direction to discover a small old town with some sort of neat shoppes or history. arizona is so expansive you really need to preplan a trip to avoid running out of fuel. i never cared for fall, i miss the first few snow storms but i used to hate the bitter cold.

to me the grass is green on both sides of the fence, and i wouldn't mind having a house in each. my soon to be wife and i plan on taking some traveling nurse assignments to see the entire country before we decide where to settle. we both love travel and we each have a nomad spirit, so we are really looking forward to the change of scenery every few months

can't help with the photos but a couple of suggestions:

(if you haven't already)

most counties and some bigger towns have historical societies. If W-B itself doesn't have one (I'd be surprised of they don't) what ever county it's in might. Might have to Google to get the name/address

probably a long shot, but the local VFW

even an ad in the local paper
