Friday Focus Morning Show – November 18

img_0075It’s not an easy conversation to start, but have you thought about what your family would do in the event of a terminal illness? We spoke to the staff of Canyon Vista Medical Center’s Casa de la Paz Hospice about the amazing work they do for community members and how everyone should be thinking about how to handle such a situation. We were joined by Bereavement Facilitator Annette Shelton, Hospice Director Claudia Garcia, and Hospice Chaplain Dave Shelton for an informative discussion.

Friday Focus Morning Show – November 4

img_0070There is no denying Sierra Vista’s economy is dependent upon Fort Huachuca, so what can we do to protect its future? We spoke to Lucian Niemeyer, a strategic advisor hired by the City of Sierra Vista, Cochise County and the Huachuca 50 to represent our interests in Washington, D.C. Hear what he had to stay about strengths and weaknesses of the fort, his thoughts on sequestration, force readiness, and why he believes a Base Realignment And Closure process could be beneficial for Fort Huachuca and Sierra Vista.
