How did this month’s Good Morning Sierra Vista event take a controversial turn, and does the community support the Villages at Vigneto development? Is a public service announcement encouraging people to hide photos and videos of naked juveniles acceptable as freedom of speech? And do Mexican shoppers hold the key to Sierra Vista’s retail industry? These were some of the topics discussed during our first hour with Eric Petermann of the Sierra Vista Herald.
Economic development will become a stronger focus for Cochise County, in particular the proposed new Douglas Port of Entry and Villages at Vigneto. But does tourism have a place in these future plans? Ed Gilligan, Cochise County Administrator, joined us to tell us more.
The business theme continued into our third hour when Angelica Hernandez, Business Outreach Coordinator with Arizona@Work, dropped by the studio. She also told us about a growing group for young professionals and how one organization is helping area homeless veterans.
