They also contain more than 19 vitamins and minerals including vitamins A, B, and E, folic acid, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, and zinc.

Check out these bloopers from a video shoot of a public service announcement to promote the special census. The actual public service announcement will debut soon! On October 1, 2015, the City of Maricopa will begin the community's Third Special Census. Maricopa has experienced tremendous growth since the 2010 Census and it is critical that our community gets an accurate population count to ensure we receive our fair share of state and federal funds. These dollars will help Maricopa continue to deliver high-quality services to our residents. We cannot do this alone. We need every resident to be counted.
Due to flooding Hartman Road remains closed from Farrell to Maricopa/Casa Grande Highway and Farrell Road is now closed from Hartman Road to White and Parker Road. These closures will remain in place at least through the weekend.
