Yuma’s winter agriculture season usually ends around April but this year it ended a few weeks early.  

The COVID-19 pandemic led to industry shutdowns that spoiled the market for commercial fresh produce.

PHOENIX -- Gov. Doug Ducey is justifying his directive to liquor investigators and police to ignore violations of some state laws by restaurants because they need the money from the otherwise illegal sales they are being allowed to make.

If you have passed 24 Street and Araby Road in Yuma lately you may have noticed a sign with a red, white, and blue building on it that reads 'Coming Soon Exceptional Healthcare Community Hospital.' 

The cleared lot behind the sign could be a planned site for Exceptional Healthcare, a medical provider with a number of locations in Texas providing a 24-hour emergency room along with surgeries and lab work.
