Nothing Fights To Be Something

NOTHING, Ariz. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The town of Nothing, Arizona, is fighting to become something.

The teeny town – which is five to nine acres in size, has two residents, and is home to a woodfire pizza parlor and mini mart – is struggling to stay alive.

Leading the fight to keep Nothing running is sole business owner “Pizza Man Mike.”

Mike has been working to clean Nothing up for years from the “dump” it was when he first came to the area, and has brought tourism to town with his famous pizzas.

However, the county is refusing to help his effort, charging him more than $200,000 to keep things running.

He laments, “It’s all about money with them. No matter what I do they throw a brick wall at me.”

As a result, Mike is battling with officials to turn Nothing into a private, members-only area to avoid paying fees and says no one will be allowed in, especially county employees.
