“Well, if you come back to Sedona to work for me, it will sure as hell give the insiders something to talk about.”
She raised a dark eyebrow, waiting.
“It will show you’ve got guts, Kathleen. It will show that you have the audacity to lift up your tail and piss on them.”
Her face hardened for a moment, but she remained silent. Jack Berens took her silence as a positive answer.
“Here, Kathleen,” he said, handing her a piece of paper he picked up from his desk. “Here’s your first assignment.”
To: Kathleen Sullivan
From: Jack Berens
Subject: The effect of the new Sedona sewer
The city is mandated to construct a new sewer system that will cost millions because Oak Creek, which runs through the city, is being contaminated by the failure of old septic systems. All this political crap has landed on Sedona because Oak Creek has been named a national scenic waterway by the feds.
I want you to interview someone who has been financially pinched by having to pay the $2,100 connection fee. How about one of those old ladies or gents who live in the older mobile homes in Harmony Hills and who don’t have a nice word to say about Sedona?
