Imagine Sedona’s Community Plan but on steroids.

That would be the Coconino National Forest’s updated Land and Resource Management Plan — all 3,000 pages of it. The plan, which has been in the works for the past decade, was last updated in 1987 and is the guide the U.S. Forest Service uses to manage the natural and cultural resources offered throughout the 2 million acres of public lands within the Coconino National Forest.

From the Cottonwood Police Department: On Wednesday, Sept. 27, at about 8 a.m. Cottonwood Police Department received a call from an individual reporting a body in the Verde River. The reporting person had been hiking along the Verde River near Dead Horse State Park when he discovered the body.

According to Arizona State Superintendent of Public Instruction Diane Douglas [R], the state loses about 40 percent of new teachers during their first two years of instruction.

As part of her “We Are Listening” town hall tour, Douglas spoke with school administrators, district governing board members and Verde Valley community members at West Sedona School Monday, Sept. 11.

In 1993, Bruce Tobias and Carol and Robert Flynn bought 27 acres of undeveloped land beyond Poco Diablo Resort.

Aside from a few horse trails, 24 years later it still sits vacant. That may soon change as the U.S. Forest Service is in the midst of an environmental assessment that would allow access to that land
through one of three proposed alternatives.

A decision was made last week regarding Arizona Public Service’s request for its first rate hike in five years.

But many Sedona residents are still waiting to see if they will be paying an additional monthly fee.

A decision regarding a rate increase request by Arizona Public Services is expected to take place this month.

It’s then that customers will know what kind of an increase in their monthly bill they can expect to see. Late last week, Assistant Chief Administrative Law Judge Teena Jibilian issued her 427-page recommendation on the case, in which APS was seeking its first rate increase in five years.
