I cannot accept that creating two independent systems and response plans to serve the children and families in one community is an effective way to handle this crisis.
The duplication of resources like administration, transportation and meal services between it and the K-8 district makes no financial sense.
If you, the Council, pass this Ordinance, you are merely taking yourselves out of the equation, but your voices have been heard and I will work tirelessly to remove those from their seat who care nothing for the lives of senior citizens.
Rolene is a strong yet gentle witness to many in Camp Verde. We have seen firsthand the racism that can stir here, and we also seen her rise above the hateful words and the hateful looks because she has darker skin than them, because she is a proud Navajo Woman.
I am a lap swimmer and won’t go near a pool indoors or out.

I am writing today to say that I am disappointed in a local family farm-stand business. One expects the chain stores not to care about their customers, but we put our trust in “the local guy” and think that a family business has an interest in their own community.
By the way, if Trump loses so does Ducey’s political future.
Nobody ever said good governing makes you popular.
If you are not wearing a properly fitted N95 mask, you might as well wear a mask like the Lone Ranger or Batman.
“A direct line to the truth?” One who believes in science does have a direct line to the truth. One who believes in obscure conspiracy theories certainly does not.
You have to be smart and use common sense, which I have sadly noticed a lack of in this area.
I am disappointed that there continue to be business people in the Verde Valley who do not care to take precautions to protect patrons from a major health risk from Covid-19.

Yes, Don Goddard. Here we are again, right back where we were two years ago. Consolidation is still bad.
People saying it is their constitutional right to refuse to wear masks is not valid.
If a popular vote were to be collected from the whole society for every ordinance and issue, our system would grind to a halt while awaiting vote counts and challenges.
Several weeks ago, I was disconcerted to learn of the lay-offs of various city personnel which were ostensibly instituted in response to the anticipated short-fall in revenue due to the pandemic.
To the stores in Cottonwood: If you would make it mandatory to wear a mask in your establishment then people would wear a mask.
We wish to thank those who contributed roughly $2,000 to our Food Crisis Fund that allows Cornucopia to supply free PPE (Personal Protection Equipment) to staff and volunteers of emergency food providers in the Verde Valley.
As a retired superintendent of the Cottonwood-Oak Creek School District (COCSD), I am in support of the unification of Cottonwood-Oak Creek School District (COCSD) and Mingus Union High School (MUHS)
I happy to say my husband received the best care and we are both home in Oklahoma — doing great. Your sweet town of Cottonwood will always have a special place in our hearts.
Please know that this is no longer being assessed, and we are making no decision about the NAH Sedona Emergency Department.
