Sedona residents rarely hold back when it comes to expressing their displeasure with traffic, especially during the busier times of the year. But now they will be able to let their voices be heard in a slightly different way.
As part of the yearlong, $250,000 transportation master plan conducted by Phoenix-based Kimley-Horn, an online survey will allow residents to have a say in the planning process.
It’s estimated that nearly 3,000 people come out each year for Safe and Fun Trick-or-Treat, the Sedona Main Street Program’s annual Halloween event.
With warmer-than-normal temperatures forecasted for that day, even most ghosts and goblins may turn out.

“Don’t forget, a minimum of one hour volunteering at Shady Hill Retirement Community before the end of the month, ladies!”
I was overwhelmed with these requirements. Volunteering was necessary to boost my chances for university. I signed up for five o’clock, the 30th of October. I set a reminder on my phone before heading home to catch up on my AP science.

It was a dark and stormy Halloween night .... Well not really. This is Arizona; it was actually a balmy late afternoon, but it was Halloween, and I was on my way to Paul’s house for a Halloween party.

When I was 14, we lived in a very small town in central British Columbia, Canada.
There was no sewer system in the town so everyone had outhouses. These were usually situated on the alley behind the house. Of course, these were favorite targets for us young hoodlums. Those, and wood piles.
When the Rotary Club of Sedona Red Rocks put this year’s Oktoberfest event on its calendar nearly six months ago, little did members know what the weather was going to be like.
Boy were they surprised.
“If it’s that nice moving forward, this event will always be a success,” Rotarian and biermeister Rick Wesselhoff said. “We could not have asked for better weather.”
Do an Internet search under “creepy clowns” and you may be surprised with what you find.
There is everything from numerous articles of reported sightings and incidents involving creepy clowns from across the country. There are also articles about how Target has pulled its creepy clown Halloween masks from its shelves. And there’s a story about the Clown Lives Matter march in Tucson being canceled last weekend after the organizer received numerous deaths threats over the event.
