Here is a long-overdue post of some photos from my archive. I took advantage of some recent downtime. Thanks to the amazing Monsoon there was an abundance of butterflies and insects.

Meet the Cochise College 2021-22 student government members

For the 2021-22 school year, @Cochise College welcomes back a new crew of Student Government Association officers at both the Douglas and Sierra Vista campuses.

The academic organization aims to act as an intermediary between students, other academic organizations and the college administration. It has been active at Cochise College for more than 52 years.

SGA is composed of four to five student officers per campus, each serving various leadership roles from administrative to event coordinating. There is real family involved; Samantha and Stephanie Amaya are twins.

The Herald/Review sat down with the student officers from both campuses to dive into their roles, how they want to help their communities, academic pursuits and plans after graduation.

Celebrating the holidays during pandemic

With COVID-19 case numbers and hospitalizations on the rise in the county, questions arise as to how to celebrate the holidays during the pandemic’s continuing wake.

“We are in a surge,” said Dr. Alicia Thompson, Director of Cochise County Health & Social Services. “So, it’s not like we’ll have another surge, we are still in a surge. Our case numbers continue to go up in Cochise County.”

How can I celebrate the holidays safely?

The CDC released their updated guidelines on Oct. 15 for celebrating the holidays during the pandemic. See comments below for the full list.

Can our kids get vaccinated in Cochise County?

Thompson said that Cochise County residents can now get their children ages 5-11 vaccinated, following the Food and Drug Administration approval of the Pfizer-BioNTech pediatric vaccine for children ages 5-11 on Oct. 29 and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) following suit on Nov. 3.

“Both Copper Queen Hospital and Chiricahua Community Health Centers, did receive their first shipment of the pediatric Pfizer doses,” said Thompson on Nov. 9.

So how are folks planning to celebrate this year? What options are available for those who choose not to get vaccinated? Answer these questions and find out more in our coverage HERE.
