Every single vote matters, especially in local elections

In previous years, Sedona City Council elections would kick off in March and conclude in May. The council election was also divorced from other ballots, meaning Sedona voters had one campaign on which to decide.

This year, thanks to changes implemented by Arizona state legislators,…

Response to flood warnings seems to outweigh real risk

Some 2,600 years ago, a Greek author penned short moral tales, making it easier for his mainly illiterate nation of sailors, farmers and herders to pass along common sense wisdom to their children.

We still know his name — Aesop — because after all those centuries, the universal wisdom of his stories is still relevant and worth reciting.…

The history of the world is not always an easy topic of study — memorizing the dates of famous battles, the territorial changes from wars and names of kings in chronological order can be cumbersome.

In one of my college history classes, the professor brilliantly elucidated in less than 10 minutes how the Rashidun Caliphate’s conquest of Jerusalem in A.D. 637 led directly to the Renaissance and Christopher Columbus’ discovery of the New World in A.D. 1492, primarily involving the naval arms race between Venetian and Spanish fleets shuttling pilgrims and crusaders to retake the Holy Land.…
