Arizona may close 13 state parks

Arizona officials are recommending the closure of 13 state parks in response to budget cuts enacted late last year.

The cuts spare some of the most popular parks, including Kartchner Caverns and Slide Rock. But officials say they may have to close more parks if they can't raise $3 million from entry fees by June 30, the end of the fiscal year.

The recommendations were released Monday. The State Parks Board is set to consider them Friday morning at a meeting in Phoenix. Board members must cut $8.6 million in response to midyear budget cuts enacted during the Legislature's December special session.

The proposal by State Parks staff includes three waves of closures. Four parks would close on Feb. 22, four on March 29 and five on June 3.

"RV Electrical Systems: A Basic Guide to Troubleshooting, Repairing and Improvement" covers both AC and DC electrical systems and is another must have. Excellent 12 volt coverage and the best source on 120 volt AC systems. If it's not covered in this book, you can probably get along without it. The authors go into extraordinary detail without getting into engineering "lingo" and they tell you things nobody else does, and those things many authors assume you already know -- that you don't. RV Electrical Systems is available at Amazon.
