Early Morning Fire Guts Sedona Restaurant

Saturday, January 13th, 2018

logo_sedonafiredistrictSedona AZ (January 13, 2018) – Sedona Fire District was dispatched to a structure fire at Senor Bob’s Restaurant located at 2015 W State Route 89A, January 11 shortly after 4:00 am. Upon arrival firefighters observed smoke issuing from the eaves of the building. When firefighters made entry to the building, they encountered fire in the kitchen area. The fire had extended into the attic space and required extensive overhaul to ensure that the flames had been extinguished. “After the bulk of the fire in the kitchen was extinguished we saw that the remaining fire had already extended into the attic and roof,” said Captain Jeff Wassell, “We had to get personnel into the attic space to fight the fire and begin the overhaul process where it was very hot.” One firefighter suffered from heat exhaustion and was treated on scene by SFD paramedics and another suffered a minor injury which did not require medical attention.

15-year-old Hiker Rescued from Sedona Butte
after Overnight Stay

Saturday, January 13th, 2018

logo_ycsoSedona AZ (January 13, 2018) – On January 11, 2018 at approximately 7:45am, a 15-year-old male was rescued from the south aspect of Capitol Butte (aka Thunder Mountain) in Sedona by the Yavapai County Search and Rescue Team (YCSRT) Back Country Unit (BCU) aided by a DPS Ranger Helicopter.

The day prior, January 10, 2018, at approximately 9AM, the teen left home alone wearing only a small back with minimal water and food, leggings, shorts, a hooded sweater, baseball cap and running shoes.  His intentions were to summit Capitol Butte, a long time goal. Note: Capitol Butte is the most prominent landmass in the immediate vicinity just north of down town Sedona with little to no summit trails.  Once reaching the summit of the Butte, the teen became disoriented and could not find the route back down. At approximately 12:30 PM, the teen called 911 requesting help. At this time his phone was down to 1% battery life and communications with rescuers were brief before losing contact. When he called 911, his GPS coordinates were identified and he was told to remain stationary and allow rescue personnel to come to him. Read More→

Safest decision when snow is forecast? Put off driving

Saturday, January 13th, 2018

logo_azdotFlagstaff AZ (January 13, 2018) – Because of the rapidly changing nature of winter storms, the Interstate 40 grade west of Williams got so much snow in brief period overnight Tuesday that the freeway temporarily closed.

This illustrates one of the central messages of the Arizona Department of Transportation’s Know Snow campaign: If you can put off driving when snow is expected to be falling, do so. The amount of snowfall can exceed initial forecasts and be especially heavy in areas that make driving an even greater challenge in winter weather, as is the case with Ash Fork Hill on I-40 between State Route 89 and Williams.

Sedona City Talk: John Martinez, Vice Mayor

Saturday, January 13th, 2018

City of Sedona ArizonaSedona AZ (January 13, 2018) – Ruth Marie Palmer, aka Rosie the Riveter, passed away in 2017 at the age of 99. She led a long and satisfying life married to a wonderful man and raised, in my opinion, three great children. She was diagnosed with congestive heart failure in December of 2016. Carol, my wife, was the primary caregiver for the last eight months of her life, but she could not have been able to cope with all the demands required of her mother without the assistance of the organization I am writing about in my City Talk article this month.

logo_sedonamuseum2Sedona AZ (January 13, 2018) – “Monday at the Museum” will feature Scottish shortbread on January 29th at 11:00 a.m. In Scotland, shortbread is traditionally served to the first guest in your home after New Year’s Day to ensure a prosperous year ahead.

The most basic recipe is just flour, sugar, and lots of butter, but with a few additions and attention to preparation, your shortbread can stand above the rest. Read More→
