Paul Eaton crams his small car full of two routes worth of Meals on Wheels headed to the Village of Oak Creek on Friday, June 20. Eaton and other volunteer drivers are taking on the extra route because of a shortage of drivers available for VOC destinations.

Residents of Sedona and the Verde Valley who don’t want to grow their own produce, but do want the freshest possible ingredients for themselves and their families, now have the option of participating in a farm cooperative.

“The Verde Valley Community Supported Agriculture program is a group of farmers who believe in providing just-picked locally-grown food,” said Sandra Boyce, coordinator for the co-op.

For those new to the CSA concept, it works on a shareholder basis, providing each family that signs up with low-spray or no-spray produce throughout the growing season.…

Newcomer Ernie Cox needs to come to the gunfight ready to fire if he plans to chase incumbent Yavapai County Sheriff Steve Waugh from his three-year post.

On Tuesday, Sept. 2, Yavapai County voters will decide if they want to stick with the man who’s led the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office for the past three years or if it’s time to give someone else a shot.

Cox claims business needs to be conducted differently. Waugh said he’s made changes, and that’s why the department is what it is today.…

Some people are already fed up with gas prices, giving the Sedona RoadRunner’s Cottonwood Express run a try.

“I started using the Express when my car broke down,” said Nancy Conway, human resources director for A Day in the West, who lives in Cottonwood and commutes back and forth to Sedona. “It was so much fun and I met so many nice people that I still ride it even though mycar’s fixed.”…

The speed limit between Airport Road and Dry Creek Road will drop from 40 mph to 35 mph shortly after the Fourth of July, according to Arizona Department of Transportation Traffic Engineer Chuck Gillick.

The move came about after the city of Sedona expressed a concern to ADOT in 2006, regarding several fatal vehicle/pedestrian accidents along Highway 89A in West Sedona.…

Sedona has a long way to go to achieve zero waste.

Yet, more than 100 mayors in other cities across the United States have committed to reaching that goal by the year 2040 or earlier, according to the Institute for Local Self Reliance.

That’s 10 years after the United States, if left unchecked, will reach an output of 9.7 gigatons of carbon dioxide equivalent, according to a report issued by ILSR earlier this month.…
