We commend Sedona-Oak Creek School District Governing Board President Zachary Richardson, Vice President Karen McClelland and board members John D. Miller, Tommy Stovall and Bobbie Surber for listening to the overwhelming outcry from Sedona area parents, teachers, students and taxpayers and voting unanimously Tuesday, March 22, to keep Big Park Community School open.

We offer a standing ovation for making the right vote.

The Yavapai College District Governing Board has again declined to serve taxpayers in the Verde Valley and Sedona.

On March 1, the District Governing Board rejected the idea of hiring a third-party consultant to study its administrative structure to make it more responsive to the needs of Verde Valley communities, students and taxpayers.

Arizona Sen. Sylvia Allen [R-District 6], who represents Sedona and the Verde Valley, wants to deprive the public of our ability to see legal notices.

Allen is vice chairwoman of the committee that last week approved Arizona House Bill 2447 and attempted to get it passed on the floor of the Senate.

Meet Mikayla. She’s a Sedona second-grader. Last year, she was a first-grader at Big Park Community School, but since it closed in summer 2016, she goes to West Sedona School.

Mikayla lives just down the street from Big Park. She loved that school. Now Mikayla has to take the bus, which means she has to get up a lot earlier in the morning to get ready, which she doesn’t like.

On Wednesday, I joined with dozens of other local adults to read to local children for Read Across America, in celebration of the birthday of children’s author Theodor Seuss Geisel, aka Dr. Seuss.

For my segment at West Sedona School, I chose “Green Eggs and Ham,” and read to Carly Starr’s third-grade class.

Tuesday, March 1, was more than just the first day of March. It was also “Super Tuesday,” the date when a large number of U.S. states hold primary elections. This year, 11 states and the territory of American Samoa held presidential nominating elections for both Republican and Democratic candidates. Alaska and Wyoming held caucuses for the Republican nominee.
