Les Stukenberg/The Daily Courier
Vetraplex franchise owner Rik Gonzales and employee Bobby Funch load up the brush they cleared from around a home in the Yavapai Hills subdivision in Prescott.
Code name: Vetraplex.

The team working on a project in the rugged hills near the border: Rik Gonzales, U.S. Navy, 1973-77; Gary Rideout, U.S. Marine Corps, 1988-91; Bobby Funch, U.S. Army, 2000-03; and Steve Martin, U.S. Air Force, 1981-85.

Sounds like a top-secret, multi-agency, behind-the-lines mission?

Nothing quite so spectacular, just a major landscaping project - at a home right about on the Prescott/Prescott Valley border.
