Bill's Newscast: Hell's Angels Leave No Trouble Behind in Cottonwood

Hell’s Angels visit Cottonwood.

No trouble with a recent Hell’s Angels visit to Cottonwood

No major problems after the Hell’s Angels motorcycle club visits Cottonwood.  Cottonwood Police say last weekend, Hell’s Angels members were in town for an event known as the South Run, which was held at the Quality Inn on Highway 89A.  According to Police Sergeant Monica Kuhlt, there were no major incidents or calls for service related to this event.  Police did address some noise complaints due to the close proximity of a residential community to that hotel.  Cottonwood Police had increased their staffing and received assistance from Federal, State and local law enforcement agencies.  Police Chief Steve Gesell is thanking the Arizona Department of Public Safety for their significant contributions in both planning and staffing.  

New Humboldt School District Board member needed

The search is on once again for a new Humboldt Unified School District Board member.  Yavapai County School Superintendent Tim Carter has announced there’s a vacancy on the Board due to the resignation of member Paul Leon.  Leon worked as a math teacher for grades 6 through 8 at Liberty Traditional School for 12 years.  He was appointed to the Board in September 2014.   Leon is resigning on June 15th because he’s moving out of state to accept new employment.  This resignation follows that of former member Brian Letendre, who also relocated out of the school district and now lives in Missouri.  His replacement, Ryan Gray, is the newest Board member as of April 14th.  Anyone who is interested in filling Leon’s seat is asked to send a letter of interest and a resume to Yavapai County School Superintendent Tim Carter, Yavapai County Education Service Agency, 2970 Centerpointe East, Prescott, AZ 86301.  The deadline for letters is Monday, June 12th.
