According to the artists participating, the Sedona Summer Arts Colony is building a community.

A mixed batch of artists from many media has come to Verde Valley School for the three-week program, now in its second year.

It was a both a lesson in math and vocabulary during the July 19 Sedona Fire District Governing Board meeting.

Chief Kris Kazian updated the board on the number of calls each station saw during this past fiscal year.

As a homeowner, imagine finding out that a third of the property in which your house sits on is technically owned by someone else.

That’s the situation the Sedona Fire District recently found itself in. In doing his research for the bond that will appear on this November’s ballot, Chief Kris Kazian found that one of three parcels that Station 4 in Uptown sits on was not owned by SFD but rather Coconino County.

West Sedona School is revamping its library to include a 2,000-squarefoot “makerspace”: A collaborative space for students with lab stations focused on developing science, technology, engineering and math skills. 

The school’s ambitious master plan for its makerspace, spearheaded by Principal Scott Keller and the school’s STEM leadership team, includes eight stations, from a 3-D printer station to a miniature derby track, and a host of ideas for the future. 

It was out with the old and in with the new at Sedona Fire District’s Station 3.

About 25 members of the SFD, three Governing Board members along with the public turned out on Monday, July 17, for a wet down and push-in ceremony to help christen a new fire engine that will serve the Village of Oak Creek.

The Sedona-Oak Creek School District Governing Board gave its final approval for the district’s budget at its meeting Tuesday, July 11.

Lynn Leonard, the district’s finance director, presented the adopted fiscal year 2018 budget of nearly $7.6 million, which the board unanimously approved in a 5-0 vote.

The World Health Organization estimates that more than 700,000 people die worldwide each year as a result of mosquito-borne diseases.

And while deaths in the United States make up a small percentage of that, the possibility exists. That’s why experts from organizations like the Yavapai County Community Health Services are on high alert this time of year. With the monsoon arriving soon, that concern increases even more.

An early-morning traffic stop turned into a foot chase through the desert that involved four law enforcement agencies and a little help from above.

At 5:20 a.m. on Friday, July 7, Sedona police officer Jon Reed came upon a pair of white work trucks at the intersection of State Route 89A and Oak Creek Valley Road — each with two male passengers.
