Bill's Newscast: Prescott Valley Days to Come Earlier This Year

Prescott Valley Days will be in April this Year

Cottonwood Police are seeking the public’s help on 2 cases they are currently working on.

Last October 24th at around 11:43 pm, there was fire damage to a vehicle’s hood and front driver’s side window and bumper. It appears gasoline was poured over the vehicle before it caught on fire. The incident occurred in the area of East Aspen and South 15th Street. Police are also seeking information on the burglary of Bank of America on Main Street on January 27th. There were no signs of forced entry and the robber made off with 350 thousand dollars in cash. A new surveillance photo shows the suspect leaving the bank and walking towards the nearby Safeway store at about 4:25 that morning. Anyone who has information on these cases is asked to call the Cottonwood Police Department’s Criminal Investigations Division at (928) 634-4246 or Yavapai Silent Witness at 1-800-932-3232.

Did actress Vanessa Hudgens carve a heart into a red rock in Sedona?

That’s what law enforcement authorities intend to find out. Hudgens, who recently played Rizzo in the TV special “Grease: Live” posted a picture of the carving, bearing the names Vanessa and Austin on her Instagram page Sunday but later removed it. The 27 year old Hudgens and her 24 year old boyfriend, actor Austin Butler visited Sedona on Valentine’s Day. Coconino National Forest spokesman Brady Smith says he was alerted to the posting by the media. Smith adds authorities are looking into the incident. Federal law prohibits damaging a natural feature on U.S. Forest Service land. This is a misdemeanor punishable by up to 6 months in jail and a maximum 5 thousand dollar fine.

Watch for Arizona State Lands crews clearing forest debris in the Williamson Valley Road area of Prescott.

According to Yavapai County Supervisor Craig Brown, crews have started work in areas surrounding the Granite Oaks, Chipmunk and Blackjack subdivisions.

Two hundred fifty acres of State land are scheduled to be treated. The first section is located on both sides of Williamson Valley Road connecting to the Sundown Acres subdivision and next to the Prescott National Forest. This project is being done in an effort to minimize the fire dangers that currently exist in these residential areas.

One last opportunity to learn about the Prescott Unified School District budget process.

The third and final session in the District’s budget training series starts at 6 tonight at Abia Judd Elementary School on Williamson Valley Road. Chief Financial Officer Kevin Dickerson says these sessions are being offered to interested residents as budget talks get started. The previous sessions focused on understanding and creating the annual budget.

Prescott Valley Days will be held earlier than usual.

Traditionally, this event takes place in June, but Prescott Valley Chamber of Commerce Director Marnie Uhl explains that won’t be the case this year. Uhl explains why a change was made. In addition to the carnival, the parade, entertainment, vendors and the beer garden will be offered as in years past. New additions will be a public safety equipment display, car show, food trucks and Indy cars. Locations are the Downtown Entertainment District and the Prescott Valley Event Center.

The event will be held on April 21-24, 2016.
