Little by little, new gods, growth, convenience, and more growth assert themselves in the Verde Valley, and soon no sacrifice is unthinkable on their behalf.

Letter: Parade organizers should work on safety problems

My point is, maybe it would behoove next year’s parade organizers to consider the safety of onlookers more seriously and to provide volunteers and/or police officers to mitigate crowds and traffic, so as to avoid having a very serious accident. It may be as simple as having signs posted along certain congested streets on the parade route to keep people back, or tape off certain residential streets, to block people from parking on those streets.

Letter: VOCA's golden rule: If you don't complain, we don't care

Perhaps those who care to be part of the VOCA need to become more pro active and not reactive after it’s to late?

Letter: Public transportation the answer to local traffic woes

Please forgive my idealism here, but as I continue to hear about traffic woes and a $35 million proposed bridge, I can’t help but wonder why I’m not hearing more talk about public transportation ideas. I see nothing but benefits to starting such a system.

Letter: We need an alternate route from VOC to Sedona

Those of you who tried to use Route 179 during Thanksgiving week know how frustrating it was to go up to Sedona to do anything.

As a 6th generation native Arizonan I can relate to Patti Hughes Letter on the decline of Sedona. I feel the same way about the whole state and especially the state government.

Letter: Why is 12th Street a mess again?

Why has Cottonwood torn up 12th Street again? Two years ago, they took a long time to rebuild it and now it is a mess again with no bike lanes and a rough surface to drive on.

Letter: It’s sad to see what Sedona has become

My first visit to Sedona was in 1986. There wasn’t much here. The Rainbow Room and the Art Barn provided nightlife and culture in that order.

Letter: Two stop signs a poor solution to speeding cars

I am concerned with the cars traveling down our road. For one we have no sidewalks and people use our street as a short cut to the hospital, college, cement plant or wherever they go when accessing the Willard extension.
