Bullying – a category of aggressive behavior characterized by the following three minimum criteria. (1) hostile intent (2) imbalance of power (3) repetition over a period of time.

Some of you may have read the editorial contained in the Friday, Jan. 18th edition of the Red Rock News entitled “Ex – Mayor tells falsehood to play the victim”. In this editorial, Christopher Fox Graham slanders me with accusations that range from lying to malfeasance of office.

I want to thank all of you that have emailed, texted and called with your expressions of outrage over this editorial and your own stories of hostile treatment by Fox Graham. Some of you have said that I must have grown a “thick skin” during my seven years as Mayor. The truth is, attacks hurt, some more than others. You have to consider the source. Regardless, it hurts to be called a liar and have your public service be publicly marginalized. Read More→

US 180 near Flagstaff can see heavy delays on peak snow-play days

logo_azdot2Flagstaff AZ (January 18, 2019) – The combination of a winter holiday weekend and recent snow can be a magnet for those looking to ski, sled or toss a few snowballs.

If you’re heading to play in the snow, be ready for the possibility that you’ll see heavy traffic and delays, especially on the trip home, in popular areas such as US 180 northwest of Flagstaff.

Leave prepared to spend more time than you may expect in winter weather. The Arizona Department of Transportation’s tips for winter driving in Arizona’s high country, available at azdot.gov/KnowSnow, include dressing for the cold and packing coats, blankets, gloves and scarves. Make sure you have a fully charged cellphone and plenty of water and snacks, and keep your tank half to three-quarters full at all times. Read More→
