It’s fair to call this group a current and former “Who’s Who of Verde Valley Educators.”
As Yavapai County Sheriff, my top priority is public safety. As such, I would like to address the call to “abolish ICE” by a minority of elected officials.
Sedona is in the middle of a primary election. Ballots go out on August 1; Election Day is August 28.
It’s been said that an election season is the time of the year when the brains of many people turn to Jello.
Elections are nearing and I wanted to take this time to thank the people of the Town of Camp Verde for allowing me the opportunity to represent them on the Town Council. It has been a privilege and hope that I have been of service.
The essence of personal credibility involves playing by the same rules you expect of others.
As the chairman of the Consolidation Advisory Committee for Mingus Union High School and Cottonwood-Oak Creek School, I have been asked by a number of potential voters as to whether I thought that 1: should the issue of consolidation between MUHS and COCSD be decided by the voters and 2: would the proposed consolidation be of benefit to our children (or, in my case, grandchildren).

Have you ever wondered what happened to the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence?
Thursday marked a devastating day for American journalism.
After reading that Yavapai County is studying building a new roadway connecting Cornville Road to State Route 260, I was intrigued. One reason cited was it could reduce emergency response times and relieve congestion. I haven’t seen any congestion on Cornville Road except when it’s closed for the occasional cattle crossings.
The fight over a so-called clean-energy ballot measure from California billionaire Tom Steyer has been in the news a lot lately.
Two announcements last week, along with renewal of a trails coalition, have big implications for the Cornville community.
Last week, state lawmakers had a chance to hear firsthand the concerns Verde Valley residents have about our water future. Arizona House of Representatives’ Committee on Energy, Environment and Natural Resources held a water forum in Camp Verde, as part of a statewide listening tour to learn more about the solutions local communities support.
If the vote on consolidation is close, the voice of Clarkdale-Jerome voters may speak loudest of all.
The clock is ticking toward the Upper Verde’s first school district consolidation election in 10 years, and our fourth such election since 1959.
My name is Rayanne Wetzel and I was one of the students who showed up to [the June 12] board meeting in support of keeping Mr. Douvikas at our school.
It’s looking more certain with each passing day that Upper Verde voters once again will weigh in on the school district consolidation question.
What does it mean when there’s coliform in your water?
The City of Cottonwood has been under heavy fire following news by the Arizona Attorney General’s Office that a former city employee was indicted for allegedly forging drinking water test results.
