Big changes are coming to the Sierra Vista Herald on September 1, which includes dropping from seven issues to five. New publisher Jennifer Sorenson joined us to talk about why the paper is evolving and how it plans to stay relevant to the local community.
Will Cochise County close two of its detention centers to save money in a struggling economy? Why is the Fry Fire District Chief against annexing Fry Town to Sierra Vista?

Eric Petermann, the Herald’s Opinions Editor, discussed these issues, and more, during our first hour.
In 2016, the local community passed a $28m bond to help the Sierra Vista School District fund some vital building projects, and upgrades in the classroom. Barbara Williams, of the district’s governing board, and Jerry Proctor, co-chair of the bond oversight committee, dropped by to tell us how the money has been spent so far.
