Gripe Guy on Whose Got Sense?

Common Sense, PLEASE!  I’ll pass on the second helping because I already have plenty, thank you, but why are so many out there lacking even a healthy dose of it?

Sedona Sales Tax Revenue Falls Sharply

This article is about Sedona’s last bond/debt obligation of $18,000,000, known as the Series 2007 Bond Obligation…a debt this City clearly should have known it couldn’t afford and didn’t need. In my e-mail to City Council of February 12, 2009, which so infuriated Councilors Scagnelli and Colquitt, I said: “Some of you continue to question whether there is a cost/benefit ratio...

Letter to the Editor: PETITION GOVERNMENT TO STOP BIG PHARMA SELL-OUT!

Urgent health petition!  Dear Friends,  Our RIGHTS to buy and use supplemets are ONCE AGAIN under attack by politicians who are bought out by BIG PHARMA.  John McCain, the Republican from Arizona, is introducing legislation that will, if passed, severely limit our access to dietary supplements and create obstacles for companies trying to develop new health products.   (Below you will see a copy... 

Sedona Times City Council Column

February 24, 2010-In the midst of winter, and following what could have been a massive and possibly very destructive winter storm system, I felt it appropriate to address the issue of preparedness from a city standpoint as well as a citizen viewpoint. I believe the overwhelming responsibility of a city or state is the health, safety and welfare of the citizens it serves, be it a natural or a man-made... 

On The Road Again

By Hinton HArrison –Red Road is an Indigenous term for walking the path in the beauty way in every footstep and breath in harmony within vibrating mighty high loving frequency with all life in trust. We are all divine in Mothers Love. From the teaching of Star Wisdom. Now birthed into a free particle shaking and rattling a scared light being dancing to the heart beat in mystic trans. Offering... 

Don’t Dump on the Sedona Gripe Guy

Sedona AZ (February 23, 2010)- Opinions and Gripes by Hollywood Jim. Litter Anyone? Are you as tired as I am of seeing litter on the side of the road? Does it ever end? With recycling on everyone’s mind you would think there would be less and less litter to see, but not so. How can anyone be as selfish as to throw something out a car window and leave it for someone else to pick up? When I... 

Sewer Rate Increase Disgusts and Dismays

Councilors; No rate increases until there are 30% salary decreases for the top echelon of City Staff who I am told are undeservedly making an average of $60/hr. No rate increase until you stop giving money away to the Chamber of Commerce, the Main Street Program, so-called “artists”, so-called “events”, and every group with their hands out. No rate increase until you stop funding...
