Lots of Christmas events going on this weekend and over the coming days. We’ve got all the details for your festive fun. We were also joined by Sierra Vista detective Bill Heiple who came by to tell us about the annual Christmas With A Cop event. We also discussed this week’s local news, including the future of Sears, plans to reduce voting lines in future elections, and City Council discussions regarding the 13 citizen commissions.
We had a busy second hour, which started with an interview with Jim Willig from Toys for Tots. Jim has been involved in this U.S. Marines Corps charity since 1955! Learn more about the great work this non-profit does for local children in need. We also spoke with Tim Cervantes from The Cochise Water Project about its latest programs, including plans to give away 600 smart irrigation controllers to local residents and businesses.
In our third hour we were joined by staff from Cochise College, including Jim Nosek and Noelle Coats, who talked about respiratory therapy, and Ed Molina, who is heading up the college’s new Veterans’ Business Outreach Center.
