Scottsdale News

Just off a busy highway in Tempe, the Liberty Wildlife organization has launched a quiet effort to preserve and protect Native American culture through the acquisition of feathers from birds long important to Indigenous people’s religious beliefs.

A single-plane crash near Winslow last month claimed the lives of two locals, including Scottsdale resident and former race car driver Bill Whittington.

Arizona Schools Superintendent Kathy Hoffman announced the award of $21 million in funds to bring more social workers and counselors to Arizona schools, including 30 campuses in Scottsdale.

With skyrocketing housing prices and a dwindling supply, Scottsdale is a microcosm of the Phoenix Metro region as a whole, where buyers are finding it increasingly difficult to purchase a home without breaking the bank.

With a unanimous City Council vote on April 20, Scottsdale became the eighth Arizona city – and second in 2021 – to pass an anti-discrimination ordinance with protections for the LGBTQ community and other protected classes.

With state revenues running $1 billion ahead of expectations, Scottsdale Rep. John Kavanagh and other Republican lawmakers are looking at compressing all of the state’s income tax brackets down to a single rate.
