The cap-and-gown of graduation is a time-honored tradition. Rarely worn, the robe and mortarboard are so heavily symbolic, they have survived 900 years.
I totally agree with previous letters regarding traffic enforcement here in Cottonwood, or should I say the lack of it. My area of concern is Cove Parkway and the stretch of Cottonwood Street in front of Safeway/Sawmill Square.
Ukraine is not responsible for higher fuel prices. Biden pulled the plug on our energy production in January. Russian invasion of Ukraine was Feb. 24. At that time only 10% of oil was coming from /Russia and now none.
Roland is trim and fit. Yet in his early forties, his knees are giving him trouble. He hobbles across the infield of the track, shouting encouragement to runners, pausing to give a little instruction, gathering the hundred or so small athletes together for organized drills and stretches.
Editorial: This year the Verde Valley saw first-hand the potential of the relationship between tribal police and federal agencies.
Naomi Judd. Robin Williams. Katie Meyer. Anthony Bourdain. Kate Spade. So many more and too many to count. Loved ones, neighbors, friends and celebrities.
In response to Mr. Rod Rosenbarger “Where’s a cop when you need one?”..... He’s so right! I have lived here in Cottonwood for 23 years and I have never seen a police car out watching traffic.
How much can Cottonwood taxpayers take? The City has put money – a lot of it – and time – a lot of it – into the Riverfront Water Reclamation Facility with too little to show for it.

Brad’s idea of a good time is to swim across the lake at the base of the Grand Tetons, then hike to the top peak and back again on the same day. Sometimes his wife Sheila will join him for the hike portion.
I’m glad the Verde Independent decided to stop wasting ink on Yavapai County COVID-19 updates. The falling ratios in the “Vaccinated vs. Unvaccinated” section can be very disturbing.
People freaking out over the zero percent chance of getting their guns taken by the government
When you dial 911 in an emergency, you rightfully expect your local fire department to show up promptly. If you live in an urban area where 911 response times typically average about five or six minutes, a rapid response is the norm. However, if you live or even travel outside the more densely populated urban areas of Arizona, emergency response times can take as long as 30 minutes or more.
Oh, Rich Strike, how we love thee!
Most Arizonans can remember a time when there was a defined wildfire season, which usually peaked during the summer.
On a Saturday afternoon, you find most kids outside playing made-up games or dangling from monkey bars.
Mother. One small word. One universal meaning. We are all bound by the shared realty that we had or have a Mother. This is a central person in our lives.
“We’ll be dead by then.”
