Did you know that, among various other improvements, the ongoing US 281 Segment 1 Expansion Project will feature a new overpass at Evans Road?

Escape the Vape

Vaping

This summer a mysterious trend of severe lung illnesses among otherwise healthy young adults began to garner public attention.  By the end of September, 14 people had died, and more than 800 others became seriously ill nationwide.  Unfortunately, teens and young adults have been early adopters of e-cigarettes and vaping products, perhaps partially because flavors like cotton candy, Crème, and marshmallow appeal to youthful tastes.  Endorsements by teen-friendly celebrities like Leonardo DiCaprio and Bella Hadid only added to vaping’s appeal.

Eagle Scout and Football Quarterback

Rhett Buell

The Boy Scout motto: “Do a good turn daily” exemplifies Ronald Reagan High School senior Rhett Buell. The Eagle Scout has taken these words to heart in all aspects of his life – whether scouting, serving with his church or on Reagan’s varsity football team.
 
Rhett has patterned himself after the example of his parents, Melinda and Jeff Buell. Jeff is a partner at a successful local building company, but the couple takes time to actively support the Reagan community as presidents of the Diamondbackers Sports Association.
