Many will join me, I know, in applauding the Camp Verde Parks and Recreation Dept, with Mike Marshall, Shawna Figy, Michelle Winiecke, and other staff.
We were very disappointed by the cartoon in last week’s paper, insinuating that people who don’t vaccinate their kids are stupid. And then again, in Sunay’s paper, there is an article indicating that the school system is so proud that they have achieved their goal of high vaccination rates to support “herd immunity.”
May is Bicycle Awareness Month throughout the United States. Cottonwood has been a participant for 12 years.
After reading all the comments about traffic, it seems the only thing they all agree on is to route the traffic through someone else’s neighborhood.
The Mountain Bike Club at Oak Creek School is an awesome program. I have two children who participate in the club and both absolutely love it.
This fee is common with many cities around the United States, it helps pay for things that this city needs like Emergency Services, and local infrastructure.
I grew up across the road from an airport in Southern California that had 10 times the traffic Cottonwood Airport does and never once did I hear a single person ever complain it was too noisy.
Manzanita Outreach held its Saturday food-sharing event Saturday, April 20, in the parking lot of the Verde Valley Christian Church, located at 406 S. 6th Street in Cottonwood.
Yes, I can read. I can read the same book, written 100 years ago, that Mr. Kent did that says the salt deposit of the salt mine is left over from the a vast saline inland lake. 500 years ago I could have read that the earth was flat, or the sun revolved around the earth and been ridiculed or charged with heresy for daring suggest a different scenario.
When are the whiners going to stop whining? I have worked in aviation my whole adult life, lived in many different states, worked at many different airports. If you think Cottonwood airport is noisy, go and spend some time at Deer Valley airport, Scottsdale, and Falcon Field in Mesa. I think your outlook would change.
Another road doing the same thing would be a very expensive redundancy
Before starting another costly go-nowhere project, let’s fix the problems we have.
Referencing Doug Melton’s letter on the history of the Camp Verde Salt Mine: It is true that a person may have “heard for years” many things that are simplistic and partially incorrect.
All are invited to Yavapai College District Governing Board meeting to be held next Tuesday, April 23, at the Verde campus, 601 Black Hills Drive, Clarkdale, room M 137 starting at 1 p.m. This is one of only two times the board actually meets in the Verde Valley.
Residents of the Verde Valley know we have MANY high priority traffic needs – like improving Hwy 179 and Cornville Road, as well as creating bypasses for major Hwy 89A and 260 interchanges. I do not envy the folks in Sedona and VOC, as they grapple with ever more congested roads.
A special shout out for the comic, touching performances of Joana Wesling as Katherine Plumber, Liam McLean as Crutchy, Preston Chalmers as Davey and the youngest actor in the cast who played Davey’s little brother, Jayce Caron.
Since 1999, AZ law has required all Az Realtors to disclose vicinity of airports on their pre-purchase disclosure forms. Did not these people know there was an airport nearby?
I oppose any Verde Connect activity that affects the Middle Verde. I live in Camp Verde and commute daily to Sedona.
It will probably come as no surprise to most Cottonwood residents that our city owned airport does not produce enough revenues to cover its operating costs.
Saturday’s community information meeting hosted by our newest councilwoman, Jackie Nairn, was attended by 50 or so residents of the Vertie Valley. We applaud her efforts to hear the voices of her constituents.
I recently spoke with a friend who lives in the Village of Oak Creek and asked him if he had heard about the Verde Connect Project being proposed by Yavapai County. He said he was familiar with it and just looked at me and said, “Why”? That is exactly the response I have heard from others about this proposed project of a bridge/connector road.
Airplanes and helicopters refuel all day and into the night. What kind of fire suppression systems are available at the Cottonwood Airport to deal with a gas or aviation fuel spill or catastrophic fire? Do you have any CO2 tanks or foam systems to deal with an “out of control” fire?
I live in Clarkdale and have read all the letters to the editor of the Verde Independent re the increased noise from flights to and from the Cottonwood airport.
We have owned a business in the Town of Clarkdale for the past 21 years; it has been a wonderful home for our business. They welcomed us in Clarkdale. We have had multiple reasons for enjoying our location, from the beautiful views looking out the windows and doors of our building, to the many services we enjoy.
The traffic problem in the Village of Oak Creek and Sedona is a very serious problem. When one of the City of Sedona surveys, done in January, 2017, showed that 4,300 daily trips are made between the Village of Oak Creek and Sedona, again, nothing was done to alleviate the situation.
