Some of our volunteers have done this volunteering for community for over 25, 20, 15 years and less. These folks do this for love of community, with the only pay being the satisfaction of making a difference.
So, if you would be willing as residents of the RR, Lake Montezuma, and Montezuma Estates and are opposed to the PPE, please contact our Supervisor, Mr. Thomas Thurman of the Board of Supervisors for District 2 and make him aware that our letters of opposition presented to Planning and Zoning which contributed to a No vote by P & Z, have the same sentiment behind them as when presented to the BOS.
When the so-called Brady Bill passed, Sarah Brady, chair person on what was then called “Handgun Control, Inc.”, said, “This is an important first step.” Makes you ask, “step toward what?”
Thank you all. And especially Nancy Floyd, Steve Vanlandingham, Cris McPhail, and Kathy Davis.
There is nothing democratic about the Democrat Party and it is misleading to use this name.
There is a movement underway to declare some cities or counties as Second Amendment sanctuaries. Using the very word ‘sanctuary’ in connection with the Second Amendment is a cruel distortion of the meaning of the term.
What disgraceful and shameful behavior by an elected official; he brings shame on the Town of Camp Verde.
When Camp Verde incorporated in 1986, we were promised all kinds of enhanced services. What we got was a whole ‘nuther layer of bureaucracy, more taxes, more regulations, and no more services.
Citing or relying on “precedent” as an argument for or against rezoning has been a long time no-no at Yavapai County BOS Meetings.
Be mindful of your actions. We’re in this together; start acting like it.
That would help it to avoid court actions by non-believers claiming First Amendment rights.
Fortunately, you can highlight Camp Verde’s stellar growth potential and progressive ideas for the future. But unfortunately, driving through our cute little town shows lack of stellar growth and progressive ideas to renovate and/or tear down unsightly dilapidate buildings.
It sounds like you have passed judgment and found the Bidens guilty, that’s the only way quid-pro-quo can work, if the President asks for an investigation and they have done nothing wrong, the investigation will clear their name and actually help them in the long run.
When we consider that Clark’s Markets are located in places like the Village of Oak Creek, Telluride, and Aspen, Colorado, just to name a few of the neighborhoods which offer services to tourist areas, a guy has to wonder why would the corporation want to build such a posh market in lil’ ol’ Rimrock. I do.
My wife and I would like to thank those who stopped to help us on Middle Verde Road, Monday around 1:30, when our car broke down.
I am writing to express my opposition to the proposed Primrose Peaks development in Rimrock, Az.
Aug. 22, a meeting was convened in Cottonwood with Yavapai County Planning and Zoning to discuss the Clark’s Market Preliminary Plan.
For all of you that have lived in Camp Verde any length of time and have shopped at Bashas’ #49 you probably know Irene Peoble.

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.
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.
Another road doing the same thing would be a very expensive redundancy
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.

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.
I oppose any Verde Connect activity that affects the Middle Verde. I live in Camp Verde and commute daily to Sedona.
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.
Camp Verde has every reason to be proud of their high school Theater Arts department. Last weekend, it was my privilege to visit my family and they asked me to join them to see the high school performance of “Cinderella.”

I have heard for years that the salts from the salt mine deposits are “left over for an evaporated saline inland sea”, for years. This has always struck me as very simplistic,and partially incorrect statement.
Christ Lutheran Church in Sedona has a real commitment to help feed the less fortunate in the Verde Valley. To make this possible, they work very hard to host their “Hands Healing Hunger Fundraiser” that is extremely successful

When is the Town Council going to get on ADOT about resurfacing Hwy 260 from I-17 to the east of the White Bridge. The top layer of the Highway is coming up and in some areas a dirt road is smoother than the present Hwy.
There are actually TWO historically important mineral deposits at that location. During prehistoric times native peoples mined the site for Sodium chloride, also known as table salt, halite, or NaCl. Much of this was widely traded throughout the Southwest. Early Verde Valley white settlers continued gathering salt here, primarily for use as a condiment, and as a supplement to livestock feed.
When we started we were not really old ladies, but now we are really OLD ladies and these old ladies want to thank EVERYONE that has volunteered for us through the years to help us make the Cornfest, Fort Verde Days and Spring Heritage successful. We would have failed miserably without your help.

The 10th annual BeneVet was a great success. I don’t know if it was because the community agreed with me about the veterans not needing to battle for their health.
We want to say “thank you” Bob Burke for his letter to the editor on January 25, 2019, titled “OK Trump supporters, who you gonna believe?”
2016: Trump claims in campaign speeches he is going to build a wall. A big beautiful wall. And Mexico will pay for it. Rally after rally Trump asks his audience “what are we gonna build?” “A wall!” they shout. “Who’s gonna pay for it?” “Mexico!” they parrot back.
Camp Verde Town Council did a grave injustice to a great volunteer Wednesday evening. B. J. Davis has been a valued volunteer in several positions and groups including the CV Business Alliance and currently serving as the chairman of the Planning and Zoning Commission.
