Bill's Newscast: Check Your Macadamia Nuts

Some Macadamia Nuts have been Recalled

An increase in parking fees at Prescott’s trailheads is in effect as of this weekend.

City officials say Watson, Goldwater and Willow Lakes and the Sundog Ranch Peavine Trailhead require payment of a daily parking fee. Starting today the annual pass, which is for 1 visit per day, has gone up from 80 to 100 dollars. The 10 visit pass has gone up from 10 to 20 dollars, the 40 visit pass that was 40 dollars is now 60 dollars and the 2 dollar daily parking fee is now 3 dollars. Daily fees can be paid at the parking kiosks that are in place at all sites. Annual and multi-visit parking passes can be purchased at the City Recreation Services Department on Gurley Street Monday through Friday from 8 am to 4 pm. Wednesdays are free parking days and passes purchased prior to the price adjustments will remain valid until they expire or are fully used.

Watch for delays on Highway 169 in Dewey-Humboldt early next week.

Work hours are 7 am to 5 pm each day and drivers will be guided through the work zone with a pilot car in alternating directions. This 1.6 million dollar safety improvement project includes widening the existing road for new turn lanes, drainage improvements, signing and new striping.

If you recently bought macadamia nuts, make sure they aren’t part of a nationwide recall.

Yavapai County Community Health Services spokesman David McAtee explains the reason the Marathon Ventures Company is pulling packages of nuts off store shelves. McAtee says salmonella is very serious, particularly during this time of year. A complete list of the product descriptions and UPC codes is available online at yavapaihealth.com. Anyone who has bought these items shouldn’t eat them, but rather return them to the place of purchase for a refund or replacement.

A Cottonwood man has been indicted by a Yavapai County Grand Jury for the murder of his mother.

On the morning of November 21st, Cottonwood Police responded to a Pioneer Drive home to check on 61 year old Pamela Shepherd, who hadn’t been seen in 4 days. Sergeant Tod Moore says something strange was seen inside the home, which Shepherd shared with her 41 year old son Nathaniel Stubbs. Stubbs had been in the Camp Verde Jail following his arrest on the day of the murder. At that time, he was a person of interest. Moore says the indictment was handed down Wednesday. Moore explains the indictment includes other charges.
