Regardless of who's responsible for the right of way, the issue you raised is why were FFA student cleaning the area. I would suggest it was a good deed, much like the organizations and citizens who take enough pride in their community to pick up garbage along the highways.
Why they were doing it during school hours I don't know. Nor do I care. School organizations do things like this all the time without any accolades. I only wish they had told us so we could have covered this project and given them the credit they deserve.
That piece of right of way, virtually up to the building, belongs to ADOT.
The Boy Scouts did the original work as a project to enhance their town's appearance. I would assume the FFA members did it for the same reasons.
Thanks to both organizations for their efforts.
The Gracie Lee Haught organization was having a safety day at the school. Introduced the children to our first responders.
Joel, good comments on your portion.

I don't post much but I thought I'd share a quick thought.
I grew up with Hopalong Cassidy, Roy Rogers and all the "good" cowboys. Whenever there was a gunfight "BANG" the bad guy would politely fall over. No blood, no gaping holes, no pain.
After a couple tours in Vietnam with the US Marines, '65-'69, the topic of violence in movies came up and my thought process was, as I see it now, way off the mark.
I remember saying that perhaps this was a good thing. Perhaps if people actually saw blood, guts and gore, they would understand what a bullet can actually do to the human body thus, movie violence may actually be a deterrent. Boy was I naive...
