This week on Arizona Illustrated… Selling Water: Should Colorado River water be used to grow alfalfa or subdivisions in the Phoenix metropolitan area? A pending water sale pits communities along the river against those of Queen Creek, population 50,000 and is setting the stage for future battles over the world’s most precious resource. Myth and The West: Cody Young grew up around Old Tucson Studios with his father "Blackjack" Young, a Hollywood stuntman who worked with legends like John Ford and John Wayne. Cody was enamored with Western films. Now, he teaches students at the University of Arizona about The Western but his relationship with those films is a lot more complicated.
