What value do dark skies hold? An Arizona Republic article examines the issue.

This week, the Arizona Republic offered a comprehensive view of a topic that dogs the west—and most urban areas. Writer Megan Finnerty explored the value of maintaining dark skies over our heads—and how challenging that goal is.

The path that led to ensuring dark skies over Flagstaff may provide a roadmap to do so in other places. But the opposition that masses against such an effort is robust—and strategic.

Reading the story, I started to wonder whether there is a Dark Skies go-to lawyer in Arizona. Has anyone—perhaps someone who represented darkness advocates in the past—carved out a niche and reputation as an expert in the area?
