The recent editorial regarding Arizona politics raising blood pressure is quite accurate. But not for the reasons mentioned.

What raises my blood pressure is the Biden administration and all his fellow travelers.

While I didn’t vote for senator Sinema, I applaud her resistance to change the filibuster rules.

The constitution says that anything not specifically given to the federal government is reserved to the states. Nowhere does the constitution give the federal government the right to determine election rules.

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.

Last week reporter Karen Schaffner and I traveled to Tirrito Farm in Willcox, AZ. A sustainable farm-to-table experience coming to Cochise county soon. With cows, goats, a brewery and a brand new restaurant, this will be an experience coming soon! Read all about it in this week's issue of the Herald/Review and watch this little video that highlights this local gem.
