'This isn't a party town!' Mayor warns Prince Harry not to 'fornicate the night away' [AZ]

FULL TITLE: 'This isn't a party town!' Mayor warns Prince Harry not to 'fornicate the night away' as he settles into sleepy Arizona township

He has already made a splash in the States, drinking until dawn and kissing a heavily tattooed cocktail waitress.

But party loving Prince Harry has been ordered to be on his best behaviour while he trains in a heavily Christian desert town.

Indeed the Mayor of Gila Bend, a tiny community in the heart of the Arizona desert, has warned that the lively British royal risks being taken to task by more than one angry father brandishing a shotgun should he try to get to know any of the female locals.

'There are probably some fathers here in Gila Bend who would go to extremes to protect their daughters, 'cautioned local politician Ron Henry, 64.

'Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and we have some very pretty girls here.

'Some of the dads won't take too kindly to a Prince fornicating the night away and drinking into the small hours.

'It is a very quiet town with a lot of good Christian people. This isn't a party town.'

Helicopter pilot Harry, 27, arrived in dust-ridden Gila Bend last week on the final stage of a two-month advanced weapons training course.

The sleepy town - a former stagecoach stop - has just 1,700 residents, one bar - and a £60 a night hotel designed to look like a Space Ship.

It enjoys a minor notability among aficionados of roadside attractions for its quirky welcome sign which boasts the conurbation is 'home to 17000 friendly people and 5 old crabs'.

The bar is set considerably lower for a royal than it is for a Conservative Black Presidential candidate.

Well, not if the heavily tattooed waitress wanted to make out with him.

Prince Harry could be a full-time playboy. Millions of young (and not-so-young) women would line up to throw themselves at him. He could have his pick of international supermodels. Instead, he has proven himself to be serious about his military career. He's no Bill Clinton.

There’s nothing else to do in Gila Bend. The town exists for no reason other than to avoid driving through Phoenix when making a trip on I-10.

I would image that he being a genuine prince, that he could do quite a bit of fornicating in a small town.

Hope he has himself a jumbo box of condoms and a barrel of high grade penicillin.

Harry can hitch a ride on military helicopter and fly to San Diego and party on the weekend. Who needs Gila Bend?

Is the population 17,000 or 1700? Bit of a difference there.

“we have some very pretty girls here.” Some of the dads won't take too kindly to a Prince fornicating the night away and drinking into the small hours.

It takes two to fornicate pops.

“The Mayor of Gila Bend”

That would make a great title for a short story....

Is the prince Simply Irresistible, or are the girls in Gila not as chaste as the mayor thinks they are?

Ohhh. A young pilot and pretty girls. What could possibly happen. Heck, most of the old pilots I know are horn-dogs.

I’m guessing this town sees a lot of military and I also suspect that anything Harry does has been done before and more. So Mayor lighten up, as long as they’re not hurting anyone and not breaking your laws mind your own business.

(I’ve got a son in the military and know they need to blow off steam)

Gila Bend is 40 miles from Ajo, and it is a town of perhaps a thousand people. Still, there is more action in Ajo, even though it closes down at 9 PM.

So this traveling British prince’s car breaks down miles from nowhere, right near the gate of a rancher who has these two lovely daughters...

If I were Harry, I’d tell the mayor to have a Coke and smile, but to otherwise stfu, but that’s just me.

Good advice, always important to fornicate early and get a good nights rest ;-)

He's not "fornicating the night away," he's deploying his stimulus package.

It is, which is why it’s effective to navigate around Phoenix on an I-10 trip, since I-10 goes straight through Phoenix, but using I-8 and 85 (which meet at Gila Bend) you can run the other half of the square and skip Phoenix.

***... its quirky welcome sign which boasts the conurbation is ‘home to 17000 friendly people and 5 old crabs’.***

So? Near here was a town with a sign that read ...”Home of 500 FRIENDY People, and 6 old soreheads!” back in 1956. We never found the 500 friendly people.

Wonder if Gila Bend ever got that super big PANDA power plant going north of town? They were working on it in 2001, and it was shut down back in 2002. Same for the one north of Deming, NM.

This Mayor can pound. If this dude wants to blow money on wine, women and song, that is his deal. I am sure the local watering hole appreciates the business in this economy. From the sounds of this town, I bet the Mayor is also the Justice of the Peace, the Notary and the Building Inspector in between doing lube jobs at his garage.

Reminds me of a line from THE LION IN WINTER where Kathrine Hepburn says to King Henry (Peter O’Toole)...”We could populate a country town with country girls who have born you sons!”

Gila Bend is best known for the Space Age Lodge (Best Western), and the fact that due to a government experiment gone wrong, the town is trapped in a time loop, so it is always the late 1960s there.

And even though Gila Bend is out in the ************* desert SW of Phoenix, it is still in Maricopa County. The Jurisdiction of Sheriff Joe Arpaio. And it is on one of the largest drug and illegal alien corridors in the US.

I do that (I-8 to 85 to I-10) weekly.

I-8 follows the route of old US 80

I’ve done it a few times going from Tucson to LA or back, much much better than hitting Phoenix rush hour.

This is really insulting and inappropriate from a guy who claims to be a Christian. He needed worry, I imagine if Harry gets time off he will drop his money in Las Vegas or Palm Springs or Phoenix and not the mayor’s town.

For all who’ve had doubts about him being Charles’ son, I would suggest looking at Harry’s eyes.

I hope to be excused for going off topic. The fascinating name of Gila Bend jogged my memory. In 1973 the town was host to the movie making industry. The film was called "The Man who loved Cat Dancing". The town got much business.

Burt Reynolds and Lee J. Cobb along with English actress Sarah Miles got along quite well. Her manager, one David Whiting (poor devil), demanded she not go out to local bars and party. There was a row. On returning in the early hours, Whiting was found dead in the shower . The inquest found it to be a drug overdose. Yet Whiting had certainly been assaulted in some way. A man's magazine went to Gila Bend and did their own inquiry. Dark suggestions were floated about the man being beaten, over his possessive attitude to Miles. Miles blamed the publicity for ruining her career. Whiting`s mother tried to re-open the inquest without success. Gila Bend probably glad to rid itself of the Hollywood crew.

Sarah Miles was a hot ticket back in those days.

conurbation

Tnx Daily Mail, learned a new word today.

A conurbation is a region comprising a number of cities, large towns, and other urban areas that, through population growth and physical expansion, have merged to form one continuous urban and industrially developed area.

cities, large towns

I have driven through Gila Bend many times and calling it a city or even a large town is a gross exaggeration. Maybe if you throw in Phoenix but it's a good 70 miles as the buzzard flies from GB to the edge of Phx.

Gila Bend looks like the set of a Hollywood slasher film, complete with rattlesnakes, coyotes, illegal aliens, broken-down trailers, and toothless rednecks. Hardly the kind of party town Prince Harry is used to. :)
