I want to give you a quick update on some of the challenges we are experiencing in keeping our schools open. As I am sure you are aware, our community and nation have seen an increase in spread of the Omicron Variant of COVID-19.
I keep hearing and reading about all the arrests and prosecutions of people involved in the Jan.6 protest.
Total number of deaths in the United States, all causes
I read with great interest the words from community leaders representing Cottonwood, Camp Verde, Jerome, Yavapai College, and Sedona in your New Year edition.
What a wonderful caring community we live in. Thank you to all the bell ringers that donated their time ringing the bells for The Salvation Army for the last five weeks in front of Camp Verde’s Bashas’ Store.
It’s wonderful to start the year off with so many people to thank. The Friends of Clark Memorial Library thank our amazing volunteer Jeannie Campbell who made our December Book Sale so successful.
I agree with Terri Nopp in her view regarding journalism. I, too, expected more from a small- town paper.
How naive of people who think that COVID has not been extinguished due to the vaxxers. It’s the other way around, people. If you read about history of vaccines, the top one that comes to mind is polio (a virus), which has been extinguished. How was that accomplished? Vaccines!
Gratitude!! Words cannot express the depth of my gratitude!! Three days ago I could not push a grocery cart without experiencing crushing chest pain and shortness of breath that made it impossible to speak. I was at death’s door.
Beaver Creek and Camp Verde residents are hurting due to inadequate medical services. Many of us would choose to be served by unvaccinated personnel rather than have no care.
‘Tis the season of joy and good will to all. May this continue throughout year 2022.
At Clarkdale-Jerome School, we are incredibly proud of the many partnerships with local businesses and organizations that help support our school. On behalf of the Clarkdale-Jerome School District, I would like to recognize the following businesses who participated in our Mingus Rams Athletic Banner Sponsorship Program.
A week ago, after serving the communities of Cottonwood, Camp Verde and Sedona as a board certified pediatrician for the past 16 years, my employment was abruptly terminated, when my exemption to the COVID vaccination was denied.
Please don’t be persuaded by the vocal minority opposing the Northern Arizona Healthcare employment policy.
Thanks for a thought provoking Reader Poll question: Do I trust the process of redistricting? Thinking on this, I’m not sure.
I am sharing this letter since not one of the Sedona City Council members replied to this email.
Friends of Camp Verde Library thanks everyone who participated in making the 2021 Wreath Contest and Silent Auction an outstanding success.
Today, on a national, week to week basis, COVID-19 cases are falling 10% and deaths are falling 17% across the country. But, according to Johns Hopkins University, weekly cases are rising in Arizona by 1.65% and they appear to be even more active in the Verde Valley.
A special thanks to Jan Marc Quisumbing and other members of the Cottonwood Public Library.
We of the Immaculate Conception Conference of the Society of the Knights of Columbus thank Larry Green and its General Manager Dave Connors for the dealership’s generous donation.
A big thank you to our active and retired military. I just called the local VFW to find out about activities and where poppies will be sold.
To prevent further spread of the coronavirus, we should require everyone to get fully vaccinated (including a possible third dose) unless exempted by a sincerely held religious belief or medical condition.
RE: Readers Poll. The reasons for worker shortage are not all listed in the readers’ poll and may give a distorted view.
While Congress continues to negotiate the big spending bill, I truly hope that pieces of bad legislation that hurt towns like ours are not snuck into the final deal.
