Letter: Article didn't do Butler justice

Your front-page article about Butler did not sit well with me. I live on John L Avenue between Lomita and Roosevelt. I own my own mobile home - bought it in 1991. My block has only experienced one case of lawlessness since I moved here. It was a burglary. As far as I know, no illegal drugs are being used on this block. There are mostly retired folks living on my block. It is a really quiet neighborhood.

I bought out here versus in the city because I got a really low price on my home. We have all that Kingman has out here except sewers, sidewalks and streetlights. I can live quite nicely without these.

Also, another perk living in Butler - you rarely hear a BNSF train.

By the way, what is the area called between Gordon and Northern? I thought that was also Butler. I was advised against locating in Birdland. I'm glad I took that advice.

Article comment by: Butler's a pleasant place to live.

Doyle, thanks for taking the time to write this letter. I agree completely. I lived in the Butler area for seven years, and I now live near the golf course. I had no more problem with crime, drugs, or anything else in Butler than I now have in my current house. I got to know my neighbors on all sides in my Butler house, and they were all great people. Although not rich, most people in Butler are honest, kind, and helpful, and make wonderful neighbors. I wouldn't hesitate to live there again.

Re: Mohave Country Club Estates

Sorry, your wrong. Those homes are within the city limits. Maybe we can call it Butler County Club Estates! Nah, since I don`t look down upon my neighbors, I feel no need to differentiate my address from someone on the other side of Northern.

CORRECTION to my previous post - I just did a little research and found that the area in question, according to the Assessor Description, is: LAKE MOHAVE COUNTRY CLUB ESTATES

Article comment by: Birdland Resident

I take exception to your reference to Birdland. I bought a home here and have had no trouble at all. My neighbors are wonderful and I don't appreciate you degrading my neighborhood anymore than you taking exception to the degrading of the Butler area. (which I read about way more that Birdland)!!

"...By the way, what is the area called between Gordon and Northern?"

Several years ago, I was told by the County Recorder's office that the area you referred to is called Country Club Estates. Go figure!

It is, I live there. It`s just that some residents here are in denial.
