Sedona AZ (October 27, 2014) – Last year, Sedona Charter School was facing a major challenge: preparing for online state testing. The school’s single Internet connection was insufficient even for basic educational programs—the system would crash or freeze on a near-daily basis—and the classroom computers were outdated and unreliable. Without outside support, the upgrades required to accommodate Arizona’s 2015 mandate to conduct standardized testing online seemed like a financial impossibility. Read More→

Anna Sales Flood Control Project
has Become a Reality

Monday, October 27th, 2014

logo_amigosdelverdevalleyCottonwood AZ (October 27, 2014) – Flooding during the monsoon season is a huge issue to Anna Sales, a 76 yr. old who lives alone in a Verde Heights housing development in Cottonwood, AZ. Since September 1993, a deluge of surface water — originating from both the side and front of Anna’s home — has flooded her home repeatedly and threatens the security of her home’s foundation.

The seesawing effect of severe droughts, which can contract the soil beneath the foundation and cause cracks, followed by deluges of rain during the monsoon season and rushing surface water, can threaten the security of a home’s foundation. The problem is, Anna wants to stay in her home yet she does not have the means to move and cannot afford to pay contractors to stem the flooding. Read More→

… the USFS is back to burning in an effort to save the forest … dire warnings about catastrophic fires if they don’t do the prescribed burns and many studies justifying the need for them to restore the forest that the selfsame USFS has mismanaged for the past hundred years … now we are to believe them that they have it right this time around.

Oak Creek Watershed Council
Awarded $120,040 Grant by ADEQ

Friday, October 24th, 2014

logo_oakcreekwatershedcouncilLow Impact Design (LID) stormwater mitigation, pollution and runoff control, public education and outreach

Sedona AZ (October 24, 2014) – The Oak Creek Watershed Council (OCWC) has been awarded a $120,040 grant by the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) through its water quality improvement grant program to address and control polluted runoff in the Carroll Canyon drainage. Mitigation will focus on the Settlers Rest neighborhood in West Sedona, located near the top of Carrol Canyon. Carroll Canyon drains most of West Sedona into Oak Creek. The area has a number of recreation trails which see heavy use by hikers, bikers, and horseback riders. These uses may be contributing to higher levels of erosion and fecal matter being left to get carried into Oak Creek during storm events. Oak Creek, from its headwaters to around its confluence with the Verde River, is listed as impaired for E. coli bacteria, an indicator of fecal pollution. Read More→
