Buena softball victory.

Buena senior Jazmyn Gilliam acknowledges her teammates while rounding the bases after hitting a solo home run in the fourth inning. The homer was the first run of Saturday’s first-round Class 5A state tournament game against Peoria Centennial in Sierra Vista. The Colts won 3-1.

Criticize me if you want, but my question is this (and I apologize if I embarrass anybody): How did one community get so many really great people?

I've been in at least 37 of our 58 states and have never met better people, never met kinder and more generous and friendly people.
Yes, I sound like a chamber of commerce, but I have no hesitation in urging good people to come join us.

I tell everybody, Cochise County has gorgeous scenery, fascinating history, temperate weather, and the best people I've seen anywhere in these United States.
How did we do it?
