Gerrymandering meeting

Learn about gerrymandering in Arizona Saturday, Feb. 3

Gerrymandering isd the process of manipulating electoral district boundaries so one political party or race has an advantage over others.

Learn how this works – or doesn’t work – at the League of Women Voters of Central Yavapai County’s meeting at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 3, in Building 3, Room 119, at Yavapai College, 1100 E. Sheldon St.

Arizona is one of six states that use independent commissions to draw district boundaries based on the most recent census. The commission is made up of two Republicans, two Democrats and an independent chairperson.

The guest speaker, Colleen Mathis chaired the Arizona Redistricting Commission in 2011, and serves until 2021.

The public is welcome. The Osher Lifelong Learning is collaborating with LWV on this presentation.

Feb. 8 deadline to submit comments on fuel reduction project

The Prescott National Forest has prepared an environmental assessment on the Hassayampa Landscape Restoration project, encompassing 246,000 acres in the Bradshaw Ranger District. The proposed project would reduce wildfire vegetation, create fuel breaks and restore forest landscapes.

The public has a chance to comment on the assessment by submitting their concerns and suggestions for this project by Thursday, Feb. 8.

Portions of the district surround Prescott.

Not all areas in the Bradshaw District are suitable for vegetation treatment. Forest managers would have flexibility to work within ponderosa pine, pine oak, mixed-conifer, pinyon-juniper, and chaparral vegetation areas.

Thinning, mastication (crushing/mulching), fuel breaks, and prescribed fires are different treatment methods workers would use.

The report can be viewed online at or at the Bradshaw Ranger District office at 344 S. Cortez Street. Mail or hand-delivered comments can be sent to the above address. The project web page has a link to “Comment/Object on Project” at the upper right side of the page. The district office is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Comments must include supporting reasons for the issue to be considered.

For more information on this project, contact Aaron Hulburd, 928-777-5666 or
