When it comes to health care, Camp Verde residents have more options than ever before.

Last year, Northern Arizona Healthcare opened its Verde Valley Medical Center campus in Camp Verde.

Now, Spectrum Healthcare Group has expanded its operations at 452 Finnie Flat Road beyond counseling, case management and psychiatry to include primary care and pediatrics.

The Inter Tribal Council of Arizona has elected Yavapai-Apache Nation Chairwoman Jane RussellWiniecki to serves as its president of the Board of Directors.

Established in 1952 as a unified voice for Arizona’s tribal governments, the ITCA is one of the oldest and largest inter-tribal organizations in the U.S.

Although it’s an inconvenience, disposing of refuse — including that old couch that might find a second life in someone’s home or that broken dishwasher someone might be able to fix — is each individual’s responsibility.

Those driving past the Sedona Recycles’ Verde Village bins near Mingus Union High School during the last month, however, may realize that not everyone feels the same obligation to take care of their own junk.

Building a new home in unincorporated Yavapai County comes with a cost many aren’t aware of when they begin planning: A geotechnical engineering report.

The report is mandated by Yavapai County and can range from around $1,000 to $3,000. Factors such as site topography, travel distance and more affect the cost. Wait time for results to be returned also varies, but can be six weeks, depending on demand.

In cooperation with the Cornville Historical Society, the U. S. Postal Service will offer a special pictorial postmark at the dedication of the restored Cornville Post Office on Saturday, June 24. A special “Cornville Dedication Station” postmark was designed by the Society and approved for use by the Postal Service, with help from local postmaster John Rachel.

Erase the Stigma, Steps to Recovery Homes' second annual mental health and addiction awareness event, takes place at the Cottonwood Recreation Center Saturday, June 24 from 9 a.m, to 2 p.m.

The event is free and open to the public. Food, drinks, and day passes to the rec center will be given to attendees for free. The event features seven featured experts speaking on subjects including grief, trauma and community awareness. In addition, a variety of organizations will be on hand at informational booths to answer questions about the related services they offer.

The property that once held the Cuban Queen has sold.

Jerome Planning and Zoning approved the sale, which will be zoned commercial. Zoning Administrator Kyle Dabney said at the town’s June 14 meeting the plans for the lot are still being drafted, but that it seemed the historic property would be rebuilt, after being blown down in a recent storm, with a plaque denoting changes made from the original. Its use is not yet known.

Camp Verde will have to wait a while more for word on Dennis Goodwin’s performance as superintendent of Camp Verde Unified School District.

After presenting data in support of his own self-evaluation June 6, Goodwin entered executive session for over two hours with the CVUSD Governing Board.
