logo_lettereditorWe all agree on one thing! Proper education is most important. Lack of good education creates ignorance and prejudice. This in turn creates war and terrorism.

I also understand the need for funds to support teachers and better education.

However, I do question the need to ask the already overburdened Sedona taxpayers with another tax increase to get this funding. If we vote yes without seeing the full picture, we are voting for additional taxes. The school has avenues to fund itself, IF it operates like a business, with correct priorities in place.

“Time takes its toll on the body and soul of a cowboy out on the range.” Or, so says award-winning actor, playwright and historian Michael Peach in his new show. He continues:

If you missed the legendary Halloween costume party in Jerome, enjoy a more sedate but equally as entertaining night in this mile high town. Twenty-six studios and galleries will host openings and happenings throughout the artist colony. From the Old Jerome High School studios to The New State Motor Company with the Patrick Lincoln Gallery, art, music and lively conversation are everywhere. Enjoy great food in wonderful restaurants and maybe even spend the night at one of the lodging choices. Park your car and take the shuttle or stroll the winding streets on a cool fall night. Art Walk festivities are from 5 to 8pm on the first Saturday of every month. It is not too early to think about buying art for holiday gifts. Supporting local artists is a perfect win-win transaction and Jerome artists offer a huge variety of wonderful art from which to choose. For more information, visit or contact Donna @ 649-2277.
