Folks, I received this request for help from a local high school student who
wants to refurbish her school's observatory and return it to operation.  I
am willing to help her.  Anyone want to join me?  If so, please reply so I
can make contact with Ally and set up a meeting.

I have very limited experience with telescopes, so it was my wish to have
any assistance possible in the pre planning (The bottom of the observatory
has been damaged and needs to be rebuilt, but I would not know where to
begin with drafting those plans) and then with the assembly of the telescope
near the end of the project. Any and all help is entirely welcome! 

Thank you so much,

Ally Carr

Dear Richard Harshaw,

       My name is Ally Carr and I am a student at Millennium High School in
Goodyear, Arizona. It has recently come to my attention that my High School
has most of the equipment, including a rotating observatory dome and
telescopes, necessary to make an observatory. I have taken it upon myself to
propose the restoration of this facility as my senior project. 

       Although this project has yet to be approved, it is my hope that I
may receive help from the local Astronomy community. I believe it is
incredibly important for my community to have access to an observatory in
working condition, not in pieces scattered around campus. I can not do this
without your help and expertise, and I hope you will find interest in
restoring Goodyear's access to the stars. 


Thank you so much for your time,

Ally Carr
