News - We collected 9 segues from today's show: One Easter, alas, is behind us and we reflect on the good things this season always seems to bring...including Portuguese water dogs for the White House. The weather is looking mighty springish and thoughts of gardens germinate in our summer imaginations. Two Joni tells us about her visit to Tupak, finding an easter egg on a boat, fishing with Velveeta as bait and the need to sing the fish onto the hook... Tyrus tells us that the NAU Jazz Band I and the Piazzolla Quintet will be tangoing the night away at their April 19 performance, 3 p.m. at Ardrey Auditorium.  The performance is free. For info call: 928-523-3779  Three Tyrus decides it is time to start talking about outfits like the geek corps as if, in the back of his mind, he wishes we had a CCC sort of project here in the US with similar techniques and goals.... he just won't come right out snd admit it. Four Tyrus and Joni talk about the migration of computer applications away from the computer and on to the Internet this past decade....the fact that kids and their techno savvy will play a significant part in shaping our future before taking the opportunity to bemoan cuts in education during these difficult times. Cutting education diminishes what promise our nations future holds in our children's hands. Five Joni tells us about her hike to Fisher Point ...seeing cat tracks, scat and feline meal scraps along the trailside. Six Joni and Tyrus, in responce of Tony's Spring offering, decide that Tempe is a right proper name ~ that Tempe Arizona would be even better and between the two of them they wonder just where the name comes from...? The name for Tempe, AZ, comes from Pioneer Darrell Duppa, who is credited with suggesting the name. Adopted in 1879, Duppa compared the Salt River valley near a 300-foot-tall butte, to the Vale of Tempe near Mount Olympus in Greece. Kewl huh? Joni also reminds us that Tony and the SpringFed Band, with special guest Warren Miller...will be playing on the 17th at 7PM down in Prescott at the Granite Peak Universalist Church (882 Sunset Ave). Seven Tyrus wants to mention A Symposium of Anarchist Authors of Northern Arizona at the Flagstaff Photography Center, Sunday, April 26th, 5:30PM - 7PM. Featuring: Randall Amster, Luis A. Fernandez, Ilse Asplund, Joel Olsen and Kyle Boggs. Eight Tyrus reminds ua that they will be showing "Wall-e" at the Taala Hooghan Media Center/Infoshop 1926 N 4th St #7B on Tues. 28th - free - 6:30PM. Nine Adieu ~ from the finally spring... mountain village ~ hamlet.

Jessica Stevens- of the CVB, is joined this week by Justin from the Flagstaff Visitor's Center. They wanted to tell us all about the recognition we have been getting as a top place to visit for outdoor activities...and that Flagstaff made the top 25 list for cities in the US where it is a great place to open a restaurant.

AZDailySun - Editor Randy Wilson hosts our AZ Daily Sun segment this week: Reporter Betsy Bruner gives us an update on a story she wrote this week on Jim Babbitt and the historic 100th anniversary Pendelton Blanket design that will forever help underscore Flagstaff's place in the blanket's history. Reporter Joe Ferguson tells us that W. L Gore & Associates, the largest private employer here in FLAG is managing this economic downturn quite well, business is up actually. Randy takes us out this week with a report on their Going Green insert published on Friday the 17th.

David Grandon - We caught David Grandon laying down his new gallery floor this week. So, we thought we'd capture this candid moment, get a bit of news, from number one artist/gallery man here in FLAG. David tells us about some interesting art type news tidbits ~ ib between laying parts of the new floor in his expanded deluxe gallery space.

Tony Norris - Tony offers us a spring time song this week. A sond from a bygone era of hormones and anger at the Railroad men. This original "I wish I was a Mole in the Ground"by Bascom Lamar Lunsford was recorded back in 1928.

Mitzy Bellini - Just got back from Alaska where she's been doing a bit of lava surfing. Yeah..., we thought this might warm the soles of your sneakers just a bit. This week it looks like things are warming up here around FLAG. With all the spring budding all around us you may want to start thinking seriously about getting the earth ready for that garden you have been thinking about.

Sinaqua High School - Sinaqua High School does their thing again this week ~ It's baseball time again and this week we have footage of both the boys and girls getting out there and having at the only truly American Sport...in great Flagstaff spirit. Alas ...this will be the last Sinaqua Sports segment until the fall HS sports season begins again. Thanks guys!!!

Tyrus - With Rob out of town again this week the weather fell to Tyrus to deliver. As much as we hate to say it...he didn't really do that bad. Bravo Tyrus!
