The Sedona Northern Lights holiday show will be projected on the face of Camelhead Rock through Sunday.
Sedona resident Michael Capozzoli is walking across the United States — not to break any world records, but to help break the cycle of domestic violence, even if for just one person.
The Boston native will begin his journey in Dana Point, Calif., and end in Fenway Park in Boston for a total of 3,000 miles or 5 million steps. He plans to start in early 2018. Capozzoli is raising money through his nonprofit, Just A Penny Please, to build pet-friendly safe houses for victims of domestic abuse.
Up 2-1 with less than two minutes remaining in the first half against Wickenburg High School, the Sedona Red Rock High School boys soccer team pressed for a third goal, and got it.
Three more second-half goals solidified a 6-1 home victory in favor of the Scorpions [2-2, 1-0 3A Region 1] on Wednesday, Dec. 13.
But it was that third that meant a lot — it gave them more confidence for the remainder of the game, and it showed they were beginning to figure out the style of play they have been working toward.
When Corrie Cooperman decided to throw her hat into the ring and run for the Sedona Fire District Governing Board, it was something brand new for her, and needless to say, out of her comfort zone.
“Running for the board was an eye-opener since it was a real campaign after three people had been recalled and wanted to retain their seats,” she said. “So I ran against one of those people and there were quite a few debates and public forums. I’m a moderately introverted person and I had to get up there, meet the public and speak. It was definitely a new experience for me.”
Sedona Red Rock High School’s girls soccer team is on a two-game winning streak after beating Scottsdale Christian Academy 3-2 in overtime and Santa Cruz Valley High School 10-1.
A thin and young roster, with few bench players and a starting 11 that features nine underclassmen, the team is finding better cohesion and play than it had at this point last year. The win over the Scottsdale Christian on Thursday, Dec. 7, was the best showing the group has put together.
It came as a surprise to the members of the Sedona Planning and Zoning Commission that they hold more meetings than any other board of their kind in the state.
That will soon change. It’s been a quarter century since the city last updated P&Z’s operating rules and procedures. The commission spent about an hour on Tuesday, Dec. 5, going over recommended changes from staff. This included the number of meetings scheduled for the commission.
As temperatures dropped under the lights Friday, Dec. 8, the Sedona Red Rock High School boys soccer team grew closer to breaking the 0-0 tie with American Leadership Academy – Queen Creek.
During the first half, the Scorpions [1-2, 1-0 3A Region 1] had created some chances, the best with 10 seconds left, a strong header by sophomore midfielder Clark Borjon that flew wide. It appeared they would make halftime adjustments and be in position to compete for a nonregion victory.
But it was the Patriots who were strongest in the second half, ultimately winning 4-0.
