Goodbye, Goodwill. Hello, Circle K.

On June 19, the city of Cottonwood Planning and Zoning Commission unanimously approved Circle K’s petition to close its existing 2,565-square-foot store, open since 1971 at the southwest corner of Main Street and E. Mingus Avenue, and construct a new 5,881-square-foot convenience store and gas station with a 5,053-square-foot fuel canopy directly north of the existing store.

Sometimes, it takes 18 years to get something that seems simple completed.

Take, for instance, the Tissaw Trailhead, which officially opened with a ribbon-cutting ceremony Tuesday, June 27. The community of Cornville has long petitioned for a trailhead on Tissaw Road, where an informal parking lot has existed for years.

Erase the Stigma, Steps to Recovery Homes’ second annual mental health and addiction awareness event, took place at the Cottonwood Recreation Center Saturday, June 24, attracting people from across the region.
