News - This week is our last show before our summer break. For the next two weeks, our shows for the 26th of June and the 3rd of July, we will be offering special broadcasts in order that our keen cast and crew might find afford the time to do nothing ...read a blog or watch some YouTube, or take a nap in the woods, or hike the Tetons or swim the Pacific ~ as they choose. One Here we discover how Joni Cakes came to be known as the Bird Woman of Mt. Elden. It seems there is a near tragic story about the little sparrow she has come to care for ~named Noodles. Two Tyrus and Joni talk about Noodles, the history of wearing feathers in one's hat, live birds in one's wig, a bat in a friend's hair and other such stories. Three Joni is texting during the segment and finds out that Noodles can fly. Tyrus seems bent on discussing a new report issued by the Global Change which doesn't seem to discount the idea of global warming ...at all. In fact the numbers are cold water on the face (so to speak). We think we'll leave the science to the scientists ~ especially on ideas like carbon in the atmosphere and greenhouse conditions and carbon 14 dating for teenagers science classes. While we'd rather step aside of this dialogue it comes down to this ~ you are either willing to accept science or you are not. Four Tyrus continues on the subject. It all started with this online publication someone sent in called Our Changing Planet The U.S. Climate Change Science Program for Fiscal Year 2009 Five Joni tells us that Federal Government has awarded NEARLY $3.5 MILLION IN GRANTS TO IMPROVE EDUCATION FOR NATIVE AMERICAN CHILDREN; ARIZONA: Page Unified School District, Page -- $284,690, Painted Desert STAR School, Flagstaff -- $249,155 and PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS IN SEVEN STATES AWARDED NEARLY $3.8 MILLION; ARIZONA: NAU -- $345,958, ASU West, Glendale -- $383,566, ASU, Tempe -- $399,351. Hmmm things may be looking up. Tyrus wants to finish his global warning tangent by making mention of a beautiful new film by Yann Arthus-Bertrand called HOME. If you haven't seen it yet, you may want to make the tim ~ it's free on YouTube. Six Tyrus discusses the 2 week hiatus planned for the weeks of normal broadcasts scheduled to begin the 26th of June and the 3rd of July ~ that next week's offering,A Gift From Talking God will ONLY be available on TV Seven Tyrus and Joni ...again...adieu ~

Brett Ramey - and some of the artists working on the new mural on Mikes Pike talked with us this week. "What Flows Beneath Our Feet" - a community mural that speaks to some of the underlying stories and reemerging visions that exist within the Flagstaff community.
