Friday means visiting one of our favorites— and that’s Pete’s Fish & Chips. Home of the “Monster Burger” and “Pete’s Special Sauce”, it all started in a 6’ by 8’ wooden shack and with a couple boxes of filets. This is what small, family-owned business is all about!

One of my District Office staffers took these incredible snapshots of Arizona’s beautiful landscape while on a hike. Looks can be deceiving, however, and while we acknowledge the Summer Solstice, we must also remind ourselves of the danger that Arizona’s dry heat brings in the summertime. Here are some tips to stay safe and cool despite the heat:
- Instead of relying solely on indoor air conditioning, also use a fan to help keep your body temperature and A/C costs down. It might be beneficial to keep blinds closed on windows that shed direct sunlight to keep rooms as cool as possible.
- Remember, the heat will likely make outside physical activity more challenging, so you may need to alter your regular routine if planning to hike or spend time outdoors.
- When outdoors, use a spray bottle and/or damp towel to cool down your skin, and wear light and loose-fitting clothing.
- Remember to stay hydrated and drink plenty of water— even before you feel thirsty. This will help prevent you from feeling light-headed and will keep you well-nourished.  
- Take special notice in making sure that any elders and children you know are keeping cool, as they may be more sensitive to extreme temperatures.

Summer months in AZ are no joke. Be smart and be safe during this season, and feel free to visit my website for further resources.

Congressman Schweikert and his staff care about the people in this district. When I couldn't get resolution on something from disability that would effect our taxes, I heard from his office within a day or two of their receipt of my letter. They resolved the situation within a reasonable amount of time. I was very pleased with their assistance, time frame, and the outcome.

Beautiful pics and thank you for posting reminders on our extreme heat.

Rep. David Schweikert. Can anyone help me out here? Why should I vote for him? What has he done that sets him apart from others in the House? Or, perhaps I should ask why shouldn’t I vote for him. I can’t recall anything that makes him stand out in the pack. Anyone? Oh…nice photos!
