I hate this place. The cost of living should of been given an "F". Because of the mine, people think they should jack up the prices of homes. To rent a little matchbox home its over $1000 a month. THE only good thing about living here are the schools and the utilities...and of course Mount Graham isn't too far away. Almost everyone in Thatcher is related somehow which is really creepy. And almost every one here is Mormon. Safford is better as far as a little variety of people and they seem more down to earth. I cant wait to leave this place come Feb.
