    Arson has been confirmed in the Jan 1st fire that caused $80,000 damage to the kingdumb hall in Perryton, Tx. Since I partly blame the society for the breakup of my marriage, I say that's a good start.

    Wonder if it has something to do with the holidays?

    Well, I found it by looking in the archives.

    "Ruined house of worship is rebuilt after fire.

    "What a difference a year makes for members of a Jehovah's Witnesses congregation in northwest Phoenix. On Christmas Eve 2003, their Kingdom Hall, 4806 W. Saguaro Park Place, was set ablaze by an arsonist, causing $1.2 million in damage.

    "Now, 'we've got a beautiful new hall,' says Glendale resident David Sears, an overseer for the Deer Valley congregation. 'We're glad to be back in it.'

    "The remains of the old structure were torn down in February, and the new hall opened in June for the 500 congregants."
