The Cottonwood City Council showed its appreciation to Diane Lovett last week for a life of volunteer and civic work. Lovett stepped down from the Cottonwood Planning Commission recently. She had formerly served eight years on the Yavapai County Planning Commission before the city commission service. An experienced and active horse woman, she took an interest in new trails for horse riding and found an old traditional trail. The Limekiln Trail was originally used to access a limekiln used by "the Willard boys" to make lime for use on the Willard and Strahan houses. Lovett and Fran Whetten worked for 25 years to re-establish the trail and finally became a designated forest trail. Today that trail connects Dead Horse State Park in Cottonwood, with Red Rock State Park in Sedona, even passing beneath SR 89A. VVN/Jon Hutchinson
