Two Camp Verde men are getting the professional chance of a lifetime, joining an elite crew of detailers responsible for giving Air Force One a presidential shine.

This week, July 24 through 30, Rob Fafrowicz and Rob Zubek of All in the Polish Detailing are taking part in a detailing event at Seattle’s Museum of Flight.

When Inge Jones walked into Sedona Fire District’s Station 1 on Wednesday, July 19, it was like visiting old friends.

Friends who saved her life.

On May 25 Jones was enjoying an afternoon at her Uptown home with her daughter, Suzi Heath, who stopped by to check in on her.

When asked if he was a proud grandfather, Phil Wadsack paused, smiled and said, “You bet I am. Very proud.”

That pride came following an event that had a happy ending but one that could have ended in tragedy. Wadsack’s grandchildren — 11-yearold Dakota and 8-year-old Jordan — were visiting Wadsack and his wife in Sedona from Colorado.

Timing, as they say, is everything, and all it takes is one pair of thrift-store roller skates to prove that point.

Back in March, Twice Nice thrift store assistant manager Marge Riley accepted a vintage pair of girl’s roller skates, still in their original box, as a donation for the store.

In partnership with the Rotary Club of Sedona, Accord Hospice of Sedona will present a screening of the film “Being Mortal” and a discussion afterward Friday, June 30, from 10 a.m. to noon, at the Sedona Public Library, 3250 White Bear Road.

With July 4 less than a week afterward, timing for the city of Sedona’s next concert performance is fitting.

The Posse Grounds Pavilion at Barbara Antonsen Memorial Park will be the site of a free concert featuring music of the Air National Guard Band of the Southwest. The event is set for Wednesday, June 28, from 6 to 7:30 p.m.

As temperatures hit record highs this week, experts are warning people to take proper steps to not only stay healthy but to save a few dollars along the way.

In the Verde Valley, the thermometer peaked at nearly 110 degrees over the weekend, despite it still being June.

According to the Yavapai County Community Health Services, as much as Arizona residents seem to treat the heat as no big deal or at worst a mild annoyance, it’s actually a serious health risk.

It’s one of the most memorable movie scenes of the last 30 years: Patrick Swayze sitting behind Demi Moore at the pottery wheel as “Unchained Melody” played in the background.
