Kimberly Ott- Our Public Information Officer for the City gives us a heads up on CITYFEST scheduled for Thursday, October 2nd, 4:00 -7:00

Jessica Stephens - Our rep from the Flagstaff Convention and Visitors Bureau takes us out to the Riordan Mansion , one of the important venues for this year's Festival of Science.

Mustang Media - Our Sinaqua High School sports show for this week. The class and crew from Sinaqua offer a great sports roundup again.

Tony Norris - Gives us a classic Sons of the Pioneers classic song "Cool Water" in a classic Tony Norris style.

Dr. David Wilcox - The Museum of Arizona is always a favorite place for FLAGNEWS to pop by. This week we dropped in to see what Dr. Wilcox might be able to cook up for us on a spur of the moment drop in. We told him this year's Festival of Science was called "Zoom into Science", that we'd like it if he might explain how a small thing helps us understand larger ideas. Well, as always, he blew the doors off. He takes us on a thousand year old adventure of the tiny Nassarius shell which originates near Guaymas Mexico ~ how it ends up as part of a necklace in Flagstaff some 1,000 miles away. It is a tale of turquoise, scarlet macaws, copper bells and tiny shells...a real Indiana Jones sleuth tour of the good Dr.'s insights on the Anthropology of our region. Now, this is cool science.
