Thanks Flagstaff, and Sam & Henry, for putting up with us! Two Tyrus and Joni explain the story behind the thrice candled cupcake, of adorable chololatey goodness (according to Joni), birthday gesture the Mayor presented to us this week at the City Council session of the 19th. Three Candles on the cupcake are lit, the mystery guest who shares in this natal celebration is explained, almost, and goodwill of every stripe is openly promoted. Four Joni reminds Tyrus that they had better blow out the candles and make wishes... Five Tyrus and Joni talk about the Girl Scouts holding fundraisers here in the near future....

James Frazier - "Historic Flagstaff Arizona" These are done for FLAGNEWS by a really first tier commercial artist and compositor ~ James Frazier.

We encourage you to check out his portfolio!

Sam & Henry - Owners of the Weatherford Hotel, let Tyrus in to their offices for a visit this past week. He found the day he stopped by, Tuesday I think he mentioned, was the 34th anniversary of Henry and his brother purchasing the Hotel. Henry and Sam rib Tyrus a bit on his tenure here at the Hotel ~ and Henry shares some colorful memories of a couple residents who graced the Weatherford in years gone by.

Tony Norris - Tony Norris was the first person Tyrus talked to about the idea of FLAGNEWS. They had coffee over at the Downtown Diner and Tyrus presented Tony with the idea of a local weekly infotainment sort of adventure....featuring good news and local folk. Tony liked the idea and has been a full time contributor to the show since day 1 (one). Here Tony shares a few of the pictures he has collected over the years... some are just plain funny.
