Meals-on-Wheels, Sedona

One of the most worthy and needy non-profits for your holiday contribution consideration…

.

Some facts provided us by Susan Barrington, Executive Director:

  • 1 in every 4 residents of Yavapai County is over 60 years of age
  • AZ’s 85+ population will increase 240% by the year 2020

The Sedona Community Center is a worthy entity and certainly one that makes Sedona such a special community.  When you are writing checks this year, please give what you can to Sedona’s seniors.

If you can’t give money, give them your time and become a part of their Telecare program (Seniors who live alone get companionship and safe living through telephone calls) or ask to become involved in the Meals on Wheels program.  Some people pack the meals and others drive the meals to seniors.  There’s a place for everyone.

Thank you

The Tax Man Cometh…

The joy of Twitter is that you can find professionals, lay people, and just about anyone sharing information about their expertise (…yes, and some share their non-expertise).

One of the people I have enjoyed following is @DianeKennedyCPA.  Her posts are informative and some send shivers up my spine.  She tries to remain “federal” so that the information fits all of us.

Here’s the latest from her blog:  IRS has already doubled their auditors and it appears they will quadruple auditors in the next 4 years.  The State’s are also ramping up for more audits.  Money is tight.

Look for new Tax Law changes… think twice before you put that dinner receipt into “business” without a notation in your log…

Write ADOT to Keep SR89A Open on Snow Days

adot-logoHelp keep SR89A open on “snow days”.  The Sedona Chamber of Commerce is asking for assistance in letting ADOT know that there is a better solution than stranding Canyon dwellers and closing the road to those Sedonans who commute to Flagstaff…some on a daily basis.

Your help is appreciated.  You can click here to send and email to ADOT.

Many, many thanks.

iPhone Has App For Electronic Sigs on Docs

Kathy Howe

Several days ago a Phoenix REALTOR(r) friend, Kerry Melcher (@Melchak) tweeted that there was a great app:  Zosh.  Next she tweeted that there was also a Zipform app as well.

If you are in the real estate business and have ever had to chase down a client for a signature, these apps are for you.

Yesterday I downloaded both apps.   Today I will set up my mobile Zipform account and work on filling in the blanks of the agreement on my iPhone and then have it signed.  Only practice.

Total price for both apps was $12.98.

Stay tuned.  Tomorrow I’ll let you know how well it works!!

SR89A = Closure During Snows Not Acceptable to Sedonans

Many Sedonans live and work in Flagstaff…let alone those of us who use Flagstaff as our business, health, and shopping city.

When ADOT announced that they would close SR89A, Oak Creek Canyon, during snow days in order to meet the budget cuts required by all Arizona State agencies, the citizens of Sedona cried “No, please, No!”.

From the Red Rock News comes this story about how Sedonans are working with ADOT.

Sedonans are caring people and people who come to the aid of the Community.  Hats off to the Sedona Chamber of Commerce for entering into the solution arena to help ALL of Sedona.
