Bill's Newscast: Winter Storm Conditions

20 February 2018  
It may be a weak and short winter, but it’s here.

Yavapai College students can expect new fees and training programs next fall. 

Yavapai College students will see new fees and training programs starting in the fall.  The District Governing Board has voted to add numerous programs to the College’s schedule of classes, including a Cybersecurity Specialist Certificate.  According to Program Director for Computer Networking Technology Greg Tomsho, the cybersecurity program is designed to prepare students for entry level positions in small and medium sized businesses in Yavapai County.  Tomsho adds the program also helps prepare students to pursue advanced cybersecurity certifications such as Certified Information Systems Security Professional and Certified Ethical Hacker.  Other new programs include 3D Modeling and Animation, Advanced Hotel and Restaurant Management, Medical Office Assistant and Programming.  The Yavapai College District Governing Board has also approved a tuition and fees schedule, which translates into a 4 to 5 dollar increase per credit hour for most programs.      

Winter storm conditions blowing through.

Drivers should prepare for winter storm conditions today and tomorrow.  A storm is moving across the state through tomorrow morning.  The National Weather Service has issued winter weather advisories and warnings for Northern Arizona. Meteorologist Chris Kuhlman says snow will be falling up north. Drivers planning on using I-40, I-17 or Highways 89A and 260 may want to consider postponing travel until the storm passes. Kuhlman says once this storm is over, there will be a chance of rain and snow again in the area by the end of the week. Once it begins snowing, ADOT snow plows will be working around the clock to clear roadways.  Drivers can help by not passing snow plows and making sure to stay at least 4 car lengths behind a plow.  Conditions can change very quickly during winter storms, resulting in highway closures or long backups.
