How SVUSD handles school threats

When a threat is made to a school, how does the Sierra Vista Unified School District address the issue?

Officials at SVUSD and the Sierra Vista Police Department talked about how both organizations collaborate to handle such cases.

In December, SVUSD received two threats to Buena High School, one on Dec. 9 and another on Dec. 13. Both threats were in the form of a note left inside the school’s bathroom.

“Both of these incidents were handwritten notes left in bathrooms regarding a bomb,” said Sierra Vista Police Sgt. Tim Wachtel in an email. “Immediate investigations were completed with both of them and on the Dec. 13th one, we were able to identify the student who left the note.”

But when does a school activate a shelter-in-place order or a lockdown order? How does the district collaborate with police on addressing these threats? Answer these questions and more in our coverage HERE.

Start with what's right: KAFKA coffee shop creates community space

Music, espresso, community: These are the ingredients KAFKA coffee house owners attribute to their thriving hub in Old Bisbee.

The business opened its doors at 31 Subway St. last year. The Herald/Review sat down with Bruce Miller — co-owner of KAFKA with Leasa Seagraves — to chat about all things coffee.

Herald/Review: Why did you open your coffee shop? How long have you been open?

Bruce Miller: This is two-fold. Our vision was to create a space for Bisbee folk to spend time and enjoy a solid cup of coffee and quite frankly, this was the only way that we could continue to live and maintain our lifestyle here in town. We opened the doors on Aug. 1, 2021, after a five-month demo and rebuild.
