Black Friday

Sedona Verde Valley Times editor Tommy Acosta enjoys a go-round with boxer Sugar Ray Leonard on November 13 2008 Sedona AZ (November 29, 2008) – Talk about Black Fridays…Two men shoot each other to death in Toys “R” Us in front of their women and children? A Wal-Mart clerk is trampled to death by a stampeding crowd desperate for a bargain? What gives? Is the world going mad? I... 

Talking Turkey

Sedona, AZ—By Tommy Acosta… This Thanksgiving is a true test of gratitude for so many of us. No need to ask how many have suffered the plunge of the economy; the devaluation of our holdings; the loss of business in our community and the decimation of our bank accounts. The instability in the world, the uncertainty of the future, the looming economic depression combine this morning with the dank... 

Open Meeting Law Investigation Sparks Council Debate

Sedona, AZ — By Tommy Acosta… All right you political chess buffs out there, here’s another one for you to ponder and masticate. Last night, Nov. 25, at the Sedona City Council meeting, members discussed allegations filed with the Attorney General’s office that four council members violated the Open Meeting Law shortly before the council voted to put lights on 89A.

Monday Morning Quarterback II

Sedona, AZ — By Tommy Acosta… Even though Tuesday’s Sedona City Council meeting agenda states there will be a discussion and possible “action” taken on a complaint filed against four council members for allegedly violating the Open Meeting Law shortly before the council voted to put in 76 lights on 89A, the possibility for action to be taken against Keep Sedona Beautiful for filing the... 

Sedona Sunday Observation

Sedona, AZ – By Tommy Acosta… It almost seems ludicrous that 42 years after John Lennon made the infamous remark that the Beatles were “bigger than Jesus,” that the Vatican would indicate the Catholic Church has forgiven him. The truth be told, that off-the-cuff and not-too-well-thought out remark by a young man intoxicated with fame was used by those who consciously maintain the ignorance... 

The Wonder of Human Nature

Sedona, AZ — By Tommy Acosta… One can always find something wonderful about human nature, something that reminds us we are all part of the human family and that there are those of us who will put others above themselves when the need arises. The plane crash that occurred Nov. 13 near Sedona is one fine example of people coming together In the face of tragedy and doing what they can to negate... 

Tuesday’s Tirade

Sedona, AZ — I think cracks are beginning to appear in Obama’s Knight-In-Shining-Armor image. What’s this jive about him not moving forward to prosecute those in our government that legalized torture and virtually destroyed our reputation as a civilized nation in the world?   I’m not sure but I’m beginning to think what we were sold was not what we expected and maybe Obama is not the... 

A Message From All To All

A Message From All To All Dear Children: You are my most precious and loved creation.

I am here now always and you know it deep in you. I love you so much. I love you and let this love flow through you. Be assured...
