Letter to the Editor by Henry Twambley   Sedona, AZ (October 15, 2015) – It is so disheartening that politics on all levels of government is such a sleazy game of power and propaganda.  And it is the season when we get barraged with endless TV ads, chock full of out-of-context half-truths and outright lies.  Unfortunately our state and community are not immune to such shennanigans and other dirty tricks.

By Dr. Marta AdelsmanLife Coach in Communication and Consciousnesswww.DrMartaCoach.com(July 4, 2014) In July of 2011, I experienced an emotional, spiritual and psychological crisis.  It came on suddenly. I share it with you today because of the richness of the lessons in it. The upheaval coincided with an awareness of how attached I had become to my roles.

By Ted Grussing I had planned on doing a composite tonight, but a couple of factors mitigated against doing that; first I watched Band of Brothers until 12:30A and second I browsed a few of my wildlife folders and came up with this shot of a Ring Neck duck making tracks as he goes airborne behind yet another one which is not in the frame. The resulting explosion of water looks like tiny stars and galaxies … wow, do you think this could be the big bang? I would kinda like a universe created by ducks taking off like this…

By Ted Grussing Sometimes I ignore one of the prettiest views coming into Sedona from the NNW and that is on the left side while flying a 45 degree angle for entry into a left downwind for R3, Sedona. So here is the shot taken on Monday late afternoon after Larry and I had spent an hour and forty five minutes shooting West Fork and other areas in the Sedona area.

By Warren Woodward, Sedona Resident(June 14, 2014) You just can’t make this stuff up! I sent Sedona Council an article as a reminder that their vote to establish a sewer water injection well was a huge mistake.
