Re: “Oregon Occupier Loses His AZ Foster Kids

You need to get your facts straight. LaVoy and his wife lived in the community of Cane Beds. It is on the Arizona Strip north of the Colorado River and south of St. George, Utah. It is between the town of Colorado City and Moccasin. Finicum loved his ranch and his cattle even though he made very little from ranching. But then, I don't know of any small cattleranchers who ar rolling in anything green except manure.

As for the children, I suspect many of them were from Colorado City families where the split-off LDS Fundamentalists live as though it was still 1890, and that Child Protective Services had probably removed them, but they were still close enough for their parents to visit them with supervision. So where do you think they are now???? Yes they received money for providing for the kids that were in the Foster program, but they had already raised their own children many years ago, and just like the IRS deductions for children, it is a long way for fullfilling all of a child's need. And when you are almost 100 miles from a Safeway or Wal-Mart, just going shopping for anything is expensive.
But I know of nowhere that Foster parents are required to have a certain amount of income. Obviously they probably had some Social Security and a stable home environment is required. I fully expected the children to be split up and shipped off to somewhere else. You can qall feel a sense of accomplishment now.
