COMMISSION DOWNSIZED

The City of Kingman is downsizing its Economic Development and Marketing Commission. The Commission itself asked the City Council to reduce its membership from nine to seven people. Commission Chairman Richard Hamilton said conversion to fewer members is partly the recommendation of City Manager John Dougherty. He said getting meeting quorums proved difficult under a nine member structure and that a smaller number of members was more consistent with the city’s other boards and commissions. No one will have to exit the Commission, as it was operating with only seven members at the time of the downsizing...

Public Drug Drop Off Box

Sheriff Jim McCabe wants to remind the public that we recently received a drug drop off box at the Sheriff’s Office located at 600 West Beale Street in Kingman.  The drop off box is located in the front lobby and is available for the public during normal business hours; Monday through Friday 8am to 5pm. The Mohave County Sheriff’s Office was provided with a drug collection unit on behalf of CVS/pharmacy and the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids.  The Unit is intended to reduce the amount of unneeded medicine in residents’ homes and decrease prescription drug abuse, which has soared in recent years, especially among teenagers. More than 70 percent of teenagers say it is easy to get prescription drugs from their parents’ medicine cabinets, according to a 2014 Partnership for Drug-Free Kids study. Sheriff McCabe said, “It’s no longer safe to dispose drugs into the toilets as its showing up in our drinking water”. Please drop off your unwanted or expired prescriptions and over the counter medications.  The Unit can accept: prescription medications, prescription patches, over the counter medications, vitamins, samples and medications for pets.  Items not accepted in the collection box are; hydrogen peroxide, lotions and ointments, thermometers, inhalers, aerosol cans, needles, medications from businesses or clinics. About CVS/pharmacy CVS/pharmacy, the retail division of CVS Health (NYSE: CVS), is America’s leading retail pharmacy with more than 7,700 CVS/pharmacy and Longs...

FREQUENT TRESPASSER NABBED NAKED

A resident of Littlefield was arrested twice this month for unexplained bizarre behavior. Gregory Jaworsky, 41, was stark naked when busted while burgling a parked vehicle in Kingman Sunday morning, October 12. Deputy Kingman Police Chief Rusty Cooper said it is unclear when, where and why the Littlefield man came to be naked before he was caught rummaging and damaging the interior of the vehicle in the 700 block of Silver Street. “Little more is known about Jaworsky’s behavior,” Cooper said in a news release. “It is believed that Jaworsky was under the influence of drugs.” Jaworksy was booked into the Mohave County jail for indecent exposure, burglary, trespass and criminal damage charges. It turns out he had been arrested eight days before the naked car caper. The Mohave County Sheriff’s Office responded at 3:33 a.m. on October 4 to a Littlefield woman’s complaint that she spotted Jaworsky inside the chicken coop on her property in the 800 block of Rainbow Road. “She said his behavior was erratic,” said Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Trish Carter. “She further said she got scared as he was rambling and acting weird.” Jaworsky was gone when deputies arrived but he was located in the same neighborhood about 12 hours later, lying under a tree and slurring his speech. Jaworsky was taken into custody for trespassing. Jaworsky pled guilty to another trespassing case on August...
