Jane Binder - of the Recreation Dept. steps in for Brian this week to host our Parks and Recreation segment this week.,,, at the Aquaplex. Jane lets us know, that there are literally a zillion things to do over there at the Aquaplex. This summer is jam packed with family, adult and child activities. So, if you imagine you lack something to do ~ stop in and see what they have put together for us.

Kimberly Ott - This week Kimberly warns us of construction to avoid and a meeting scheduled to discuss the closing of one of our rail road crossings here in town. On the chopping block are Fanning or Steve's Blvd. We are to decide in an upcoming meeting. If you are an interested party with eiyther crossing you may want to make this meeting.

AZDailySun - Editor Randy Wilson hosts our AZ Daily Sun segment this week: Reporter Betsy Bruner tells us about a new lady Rabbi here in Flagstaff. Reporter Joe Ferguson has some good news for all you 4th of July fireworks fans and Hillary Davis has a heart warming story about a very, very, Special Prom.

James Frazier - "Historic Flagstaff Arizona" These are done for FLAGNEWS by a really first tier commercial artist and compositor ~ James Frazier. So ... if anyone out there is looking to support local artists... TV commercials, anyone?... .you may want to consider James. He provides these vignettes as a gesture of community service. We encourage you to check out his portfolio!

Carrie "Burl" Berlogar - 4th Rank women's disc golf champion, is back in FLAG to defend her title in the Aspen Sports TREE BASH OPEN this weekend June 6-7. Josh Nelson, of the Flagstaff Disc Golf Club, helps us get a better understanding of the game and Burl lets us in on how she came to become a professional disc golf athlete. Sounds like a great opportunity to get some fresh air.

Karen Malis-Clark - Is one of those people who have dedicated their lives to public service. She has made a career of stewarding the U.S. Forest. Karen agreed to take us up to one of those fire lookout towers and show us around this last week. The life up there seems quiet, zenlike. And the views...OK they are just breathtaking, beautiful. We're not sure what such a job pays, and we're really not too sure many of our viewers wouldn't PAY to do that sort of thing. One can't help but flash back to Jack Kerouac's Desolation Angels: "As seen from Starvation Ridge, Desolation Peak is like a Chinese mountain with pointy firs and gray rocks and a cute round point with the little Pagoda Lookout on top—it looked like a dreaming meadow mount when first seen from the lake below, but when climbed it was an inaccessible world parapet." —from Kerouac's unpublished Desolation journal

Tony Norris - This week Tony offers none of the jabberwocky we seem to be surrounded with on most financial and political fronts lately. Our very own Plato of the pines brings us a righteous spring time poesy moment ~ and a song by Gram Parsons called Hickory Wind. We think you'll like this.

Mitzy Bellini - Just got back from Lockett Meadow where she went for a little picnic with her cousin Joni Cakes . Mitzy as, usual, has all the tips on the haps in and around our little town by the big mountain. You can always e-mail activities you would like mentioned at mitzybellini@gmail.com
