ADOT Safety Message Contest voting period has been extended - vote for your favorite entry through March 26
The voting period for the Arizona Department of Transportation’s Safety Message Contest has been extended. Through March 26, the 15 message finalists can be viewed and votes can be cast at azdot.gov/signcontest.
The voting period is being extended because last week, shortly after opening the contest voting period, ADOT’s website began experiencing issues that restricted... use of the site, making unavailable the voting page for about three days.
Originally, voting was scheduled to run March 15-21. If you got through to the site and were able to cast a vote, your vote has been collected and will be counted.
The two messages that receive the most votes will appear on overhead message boards statewide in April.
Expect a little moisture overnight in our area!
Mainly rain showers will increase over the region through the day and into tonight as a weather system approaches the area. The heaviest shower activity will oc...cur overnight into early Friday. Snow levels will be between 8,000-8,500 feet so expect rain in most locations. Along with showers, this system will also bring gusty southwest winds. Shower activity will quickly diminish by midday Friday with fair weather returning for the weekend.

Prescott Valley Police seek donations of cell phones for domestic violence victims
The Prescott Valley Police Department is currently seeking donations of inexpensive, rechargeable wireless cell phones and airtime cards to assist members of our community who have been victimized by domestic violence and are unable to communicate. The victims need these phones in order to gain important updates on their cases which includes defendant release information, court information, to ...contact victim services, contact or make doctor appointments, find safe places for relocation, or to contact family or friends to assist with safety planning after a domestic violence incident.
Sadly, victims of domestic violence are often isolated by their abusers. One method used to further isolate and control victims is to prevent access to a phone through either taking or damaging the phone. The provision of these phones has been shown to be an invaluable tool in assisting victims who may be at an increased risk of being re-assaulted or victimized.
If you would like to make a donation, please bring new inexpensive, rechargeable, wireless cell phones and airtime cards to the Prescott Valley Police Department and turn them in at the Lobby window. For further information, please call the PVPD Family Violence Unit (FVU) at 928-772-5625.
Prescott Valley Police Department can be contacted at (928) 772-9267 for non-emergencies, 911 for emergencies.
