    It's hot, but not as hot as Tucson. Full of soldiers. Bisbee has had independent baseball in a rinky-dink league.

    I have no idea of what the paper is like, though.

    Three people (including the SE) are listed on the Web site as being in sports. That's better than some 10ks these days. Town kind of stripmalled, and I guess the high school is so big it competes out of its area against the bigger cities. Paper says there has been some crime growth as well.

    I believe Sierra Vista High or whatever it's called is a 5A Division I school, the largest class in Arizona. It could be 5A D-II though. Not really much of a difference in the AZ because there aren't that many schools, at least not enough to warrant as many classes as are in place. Never actually went to Sierra Vista, but I don't remember them being very good at much of anything. Guess I'm not much help, but I lived in a border town and consider it a worthwhile experience even though I didn't like it there towards the end. Gives you some perspective if you grew up in a medium-sized city in the midwest though.
  5. Just a heads up that it's 112 degrees on the Arizona-Mexican border today.
