What should the County do to improve its animal control services? That was one topic of discussion during last Friday’s show, as well as a new countywide volunteer program, an elections update, a rise in sales tax and trash fees in Huachuca City, and good news for the historic Fry Cemetery. Our second hour guests were Tombstone Mayor Dusty Escapule and Marshal Bob Randall, who talked about the challenges and opportunities facing The Town Too Tough To Die. Finally, we spoke to Emergency Department staff from the Canyon Vista Medical Center during hour three.
A lot of discussion on the elections this morning, along with term limits for elected officials, a potential business boost for Bisbee, public transportation in Huachuca City, and threats against schools. Our second hour guest was Brad Falk of Arizona Fish & Game, and the folks from Cochise College’s business department joined us for hour three.
Record numbers of people are voting early in the General Election, which is on Tuesday. We discussed how voters can still participate in the election with an early ballot. Other topics included troops being sent to the border, school board vacancies, ongoing road construction in Sierra Vista, Fry Town annexation, and more. Our second hour guest was County Administrator Ed Gilligan who talked about economic development, the request by Santa Cruz County residents to annex into Cochise, a new branding campaign, and changes for the County workforce. Finally, we talked about the juvenile court and National Adoption Day with Superior Court Judge Terry Bannon and Court Administrator Eric Silverberg.
