State Route 260 is shaping up nicely and on schedule, according to Arizona Department of Transportation Public Information Officer Ryan Harding.

After months of seeing mostly the movement of dirt and construction vehicles, permanent paving on the newly constructed eastbound roadway from Wilshire Road to Horseshoe Bend Drive has begun. Drainage features, box culverts and bridge stanchions are completed and under construction.

The bodies of two people were discovered by the Camp Verde Marshal’s Office July 18.

“[CVMO] responded to the 700 block of West Finnie Flat Road in Camp Verde in regards to a check welfare on the residents,” CVMO Chief Administrative Assistant Darby Martin said. “Upon arrival, deputies found two victims inside who were deceased.”

Since Jan. 1, Eric and Michele Jurisin have been in the process of expanding the Tavern Hotel.

Come late September or early October, it will be up and running. “It’s going really well,” Eric Jurisin said of the construction.

Two Camp Verde men are getting the professional chance of a lifetime, joining an elite crew of detailers responsible for giving Air Force One a presidential shine.

This week, July 24 through 30, Rob Fafrowicz and Rob Zubek of All in the Polish Detailing are taking part in a detailing event at Seattle’s Museum of Flight.

After serving less than a year in an interim role, Barb Waak has been named Associate Dean of the Yavapai College Verde Valley Campus and Sedona Center.

Waak is a 24-year veteran of teaching, the majority of it at Yavapai College Verde Valley Campus. She graduated from Yavapai College with an associate degree in 1978 before moving on to bachelor’s and master’s degrees in English at Northern Arizona University and a Ph.D. in Higher Education Administration at Capella University.

The city of Cottonwood Riverfront Reclamation Facility will not be making good on one of its original claims — that a major portion of the A+ quality reclaimed water it produces will be injected below groundwater sources.

On Jan. 3, the City Council unanimously approved a professional services contract for “an amount not to exceed $142,000” to Glendale-based Pineview Consulting to engineer and design an injection well and point-of-compliance well modification at Riverfront Park.

On Tuesday, July 18, the Camp Verde Marshal’s Office responded to the 700 block of West Finnie Flat Road in Camp Verde in regards to a check welfare on the residents.

Upon arrival, Deputies found two victims inside who were deceased. They were identified as 74-year old Martene J. Ross and her 48-year old son, Jessey W. Ross.

Names exert enormous influence on people’s lives, yet people generally don’t get to choose their names.

Fortunately for the Town of Camp Verde, the public does have some say on what names are attached to town facilities.
