Next month marks 40th year since the Shootout in Miracle Valley

Next month is the 40th year since the Shootout in Miracle Valley that pitted 35 Cochise County deputies against a fundamentalist cult that left 4 people dead and 25 deputies severely wounded. Next month the Herald/Review is planning to revisit the Miracle Valley Shootout and if you lived here in 1982. 

We'd love to hear your comments about what you remember about that time and incident. We'd like to possibly include whatever comments in the written story, so if you could post comments and stories with your first & last name and city & state, that would be great! 

Cochise College extends financial, mental health, career support

@Cochise College will extend and expand financial, mental health and career support services for students with the third installment of the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund III, a $39.6 billion component of the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan.

Dr. Wendy Davis, vice president for administration, said Cochise College has received $9.57 million in total for HEERF III with $4.98 million devoted toward the student aid grants as a requirement. 

Cochise College Media & Communications Coordinator Sharrina Cook-General said the amount each student will receive will be between $250-$1,100 based on enrollment level and expected family contribution level.

In addition to extending financial support to Cochise College students, the college also has used some of the HEERF III money to expand support for students’ mental health and career development.

“Our philosophy is a philosophy of service,” said Abraham “Abe” Villarreal, dean of Student Success. “Most students that suffer academically do so not because of their comprehension levels, but because of the influence that they have outside of the classroom.”

The Cochise College Undergraduate Research Club welcomes Jeff Babson (one of our very own CLL instructors!) from the Pima County Department of Natural Resources, who will be hosting a black lighting event open to the entire campus community. Blacklights attract a whole host of insects, including a wide diversity of moths and beetles. All are invited to come see this up close and personal!
