Today’s Photo from Ted Grussing Photography: End of day

… after One decided she had thoroughly patrolled her territory, she led the way back into the house and I decided to head up to the airport and catch a beautiful sunset in the air. I also got a few nice shots of red rocks in last light, but it was the sunset of a very quiet day I wanted. Finally the sun began slipping behind Mingus Mountain and all the residual smoke in the air lent some beautiful color to the sky … flying as a glider I slipped silently through the darkening sky and caught the reflection of the setting sun on the cowling and the motionless  propeller. The wind was calm and a silent landing at Sedona on a deserted runway and field. Came to a stop short of A4, engine restart, cleared the runway and taxied back to my shade at the N end of the field. It is beautiful with all the runway and taxiway lights glowing in the dark across the whole length of the mesa … gateway to the world.

Phoenix AZ (November 20, 2017) – Over Thanksgiving weekend, state and local agencies will focus on keeping motorists safe and placing equipment and resources along heavily traveled highways to help move traffic should incidents occur.

Motorists will play key roles in keeping traffic moving, too, by making smart driving decisions that won’t result in serious crashes that ruin road trips and create travel delays. Drivers are urged to use caution over the holiday weekend in existing work zones and in three “holiday travel corridors” that will receive extra enforcement and resources to minimize travel delays.

Letter to The Editor:
Wizards of Sedona are at it once again

Saturday, November 18th, 2017

(November 18, 2017)

The Wizards of Sedona are at it once again, manipulating and pulling strings from behind the scenes.  The Big 3 Powers That Be – the tourist, real estate/developer and the construction industries – along with the help the the Sedona Red Rock News (SRRN) are making a big deal about “affordable housing.”  A recent SRRN headline proclaimed that “Sedona’s housing shortage is a growing crisis” (11/15/17).  Most of the front page and the editorial of this issue were a big propaganda push to garner support for affordable housing, which is really a wolf in sheep’s clothing.  Why?  Because this cause celebre is being used to justify their zoning law changes and ultimately the overdevelopment of Sedona.  Ironically this “growing crisis” is an unintended, misbegotten (karmic?) byproduct of this overdevelopment.
