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…


Vehicles carrying only one occupant outnumbered those carrying two people or more by a factor of five, according to an unscientific visual study carried out during the morning commute at the intersection of Lower Red Rock Loop Road and the northbound lanes of Highway 89A at 7 a.m. Monday, June 16.

However, if the cost of a medium-sized tank of gas continues on its current trajectory past $60.00, some of those solitary people might find themselves priced out of driving their car to work.

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 on the “corridor” of Highway 89A in West Sedona is being reduced.

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.…

Let there be light.

Not too much light; certainly not 10 streetlights — at least not yet.

But a stop light at the intersection of Highway 89A and Andante Drive, that’s OK, the Sedona City Council confirmed at its meeting Tuesday, June 10.

City Manager Eric Levitt presented the board with the Highway 89A Pedestrian Safety Committee’s 17 options to increase safety on Highway 89A.

Council also heard from advisory panel members Doug Blackwell and Arizona Department of Transportation District Engineer John Harper of Flagstaff.…

Sedona Red Rock High School is getting the most — dollarwise — from the $73 million bond passed in the Sedona-Oak Creek District last fall.

Although all three schools in the district, as well as the district office, will undergo construction to some degree, projections for SRRHS prove the most costly, while West Sedona School’s campus will be the most altered, according to Dave Young, senior planner for Pinnacle One, a project management company in Tempe.

When SRRHS was built 14 years ago, it included plans for future additions, which the school will now receive thanks to the bond.

Four classrooms, totalling 5,700 square feet, will be added where the school’s designs left room for them 14 years ago, and 9,000 square feet will be added to the technology area, which will consist of a photo lab, a special needs room and restrooms, Young said.…
