Uranium Contamination Widespread Around Grand Canyon

Study: Uranium Contamination Widespread Around Grand Canyon April 1, 2010 | AZPM  Uranium is found widely in the Grand Canyon watershed.

AZ Senate Bill 1070 and Boycotts

Dear Sedona Times Editor: In view of all the present discussions – and anger – over SB 1070, I have attached a copy of the bill as signed by Governor Brewer.  Some parts seem innocuous until one starts thinking about the implications.  In her signing of this bill, Governor Brewer talked about border safety.  Note: there is not one word in the bill about dealing with border issues and... 

Citizens Protest Police Action at City Council Meeting

Sedona AZ (April 27, 2010) – The Sedona City Council meeting was standing-room only as concerned citizens flocked to protest the terminations of two Sedona police sergeants with a combined 40 years experience. The Acting Police Chief and the recently hired City Manager terminated two senior police officers, without notice, the morning of April 9, 2010, saying that the officers were “paid... 

SFD’s Purchasing Procedures

At the last SFD board meeting,  a citizen questioned the reasons for SFD staff not to follow the 3 bid rule when it suggested a Performance-Based Contract with Trane.

City Talk Column for April 28, 2010

This article is authored by Vice Mayor Cliff Hamilton and submitted by the City of Sedona. Sedona AZ (April 28, 2010) – A paradox is a contradiction that also happens to be true. We have several here in Sedona. One paradox is our notion that Sedona is just a small town. We talk about small town character and small town feel. In so many ways, however, we are not a small town at all but a much...
