Bill's Newscast: Embry Riddle Students to Celebrate St. Baldrick's Day with a Haircut

It’s a haircut for a good cause. 

Alarcon Street roadwork continues as they ready for construction of the base course.

Watch for delays on Alarcon Street in Prescott due to road work.  Crews are blending milled asphalt material to construct the base course for the roadway from East Sheldon Street to East Gurley Street.  North Alarcon is currently closed to through traffic within the work zone, but 1 lane is open for local access only.  Crews are also removing and replacing concrete curb, gutter and sidewalk along North Alarcon.  In order to minimize conflicts with construction equipment, on-site parking is limited from time to time in the work zone during regular work hours, which are 7 am to 6 pm Monday through Friday.  No Parking signs will be posted at least 24 hours prior to any restrictions.   

DH considers applicants for the Open Space and Trails Committee.

The Dewey-Humboldt Town Council meets at 6:30 tonight to consider applicants for the Open Space and Trails Committee.  According to Town Manager Yvonne Kimball, the Committee last met in September of last year.  Since then, members haven’t been able to meet because the Committee’s numbers had dropped below the quorum requirement of 2 executive members.  Terry Goacher and Ken Murphy have expressed interest in serving on the Committee.  They have been interviewed by Committee Chair Sandra Goodwin, who is recommending the appointments of Goacher and Murphy. In addition, current member Skip Gladue and Goodwin are due for reappointments to 2 year terms.  Both members have indicated their desire to continue on the Committee.  The Dewey-Humboldt Town Council meeting will be held at Town Hall on Highway 69.  

ERAU students get their head shaved - and it’s not for the Army!

Some Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University students will be shaving their heads for a good cause.  The Lambda Chi Alpha chapter at Embry-Riddle is hosting a St. Baldrick’s Head Shaving event.  St. Baldrick’s puts on these events to raise money to find a cure for childhood cancers.  During a recent live appearance on Q and A with guest host Sanford Cohen on KQNA, Chapter President Sean Malone explained how members decided to get involved. Malone says the event will take place this Friday from 10:30 to noon. More than $2500 has been raised towards a $5000 goal.  

Donations will be accepted during the event.
