  It was late June and I was sitting in my car with my dad. All of my possessions were crammed in the back seat of my sedan as we drove through rural Utah, and I was trying to use cell data to connect to a work call. The signal was spotty, but I was able to say at least a few words during the meeting.  


Yuma Union High School District

Parents and fans of Yuma Union High School District athletics won't be able to attend any scheduled sporting events this Fall in efforts to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, according to the district. 

However, if cases of the virus continue in its downward trajectory it could be re-evaluated in the future by all the parties; YUHSD, the Arizona Interscholastic Association (AIA), and the Yuma County Health District. 

Anyone looking to run for the National Wild Horse and Burro Adviso`Bureau of Land Management announced Sept. 17 that it is seeking to fill three positions. 

The board is responsible for advising the BLM and the U.S. Forest Service on the protection and management of wild-free roaming horses and burros on public lands overseen by agencies.  

Anyone can make nominations to serve on the board or nominate themselves. However, State and Federal employees cannot. 

Yuma International Airport



At the height of the coronavirus pandemic, Yuma International Airport lost up to 80 percent of its load capacity and saw dramatic changes to airport operations, according to Airport Director Gladys Brown. 

"Everyone in the industry is trying to figure out what else we need to do to make it safe to fly, make it safe to use our facilities and then get people to slowly be reintroduced to what we remember prior to March of 2020," said Airport Director Gladys Brown.
