Work still ahead for alternative college plan
CLARKDALE -- Three votes of the Yavapai College Board could create an administrative district for the Clarkdale campus, a simple process Ruth Wicks, Robert Oliphant and their 20-member committee are pursuing.

The two community leaders drew a small crowd during Tuesday night's Clarkdale Town Council meeting, when they presented their findings about the college's 10-year plan and what Oliphant called an unfair distribution of resources.

"Our vision is, of course, to have a totally self-sustained campus," Oliphant said. "We're going to have to fight for it if we're going to get it, but at least a lot of people now are coming on board and saying let's at least try."

PRESCOTT - A Cornville man who sheriff's deputies said threatened a couple and then tried to get into their home by firing a rifle multiple times at a locked door was, on Monday, found competent to stand trial.

Clifford Katz, 54, was indicted on one count each of attempted murder, aggravated assault, criminal damage, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
