Monsoon Madness "Pick Your Price Pet Adoptions Available"

Beginning Friday, July 18, Yavapai Humane Society (YHS) is offering its Monsoon Madness adoption special every day through August 3. The promotion features “pick your price” pet adoptions for all cats, kittens, dogs and puppies—all ages, breeds and sizes. The two-week long event is an effort to relieve YHS from overcrowding resulting from the monsoons.
 
In order to find these animals great homes, YHS is opening its Pet Adoption Center doors seven days a week until the promotion’s end on August 3. Pets can be visited and adopted from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at 1625 Sundog Ranch Road. The Pet Adoption Center recently announced reduced summer hours to accommodate  staff training, but the lives of the animals come first and YHS does consider the overcrowding an emergency.
 
Nearly 40 percent of all the dogs and cats rescued by YHS each year are rescued during the months of June through August. “This summer we’re seeing a consistency in the number of lost pets rescued, but there’s been a decline in the number of adoptions. We need the community’s help to get these wonderful pets into  loving homes  to sustain YHS’ No Kill Ethic and  prevent issues that overcrowding  could bring—such as disease,” states Executive Director Ed Boks.
 
The Monsoon Madness adoption special also applies to YHS’ satellite cat adoption center at the Prescott PetSmart store (277 Walker Road, Prescott, Ariz.). Cats available for adoption can be seen at that location from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Sundays.
 
All adopters must still adhere to all YHS adoption policies and speak with an adoption counselor prior to being able to adopt. No animal holds will be taken during the Monsoon Madness adoption event. YHS recommends potential adopters to bring a copy of their lease agreement (if applicable), all the members of their household, and/or any dogs in the family to get acquainted with their prospective new family member. 
 
Adoptable pets can be viewed at www.yavapaihumane.org/adopt and adopters may call 928-445-2666 for further information.

Fine Art & Crafts Festival

Prescott, Arizona's Mountain Artists Guild
Fine Art & Crafts Festival
Saturday August 9, 2014, 9 am – 5 pm

Sunday August 10, 2014, 9 am – 4 pm

Prescott, Arizona's Mountain Artists Guild presents its 64th Annual Fine Art & Crafts Festival on August 9 and 10, 2014. This juried festival is free and open to the public, and it’s not just cowboy art. The Festival showcases a wide range of fine art and the work of a select group of artisans and crafters on the grass under the many tall trees that shade the Historic Courthouse Plaza in downtown Prescott. The Festival is hosted by the Mountain Artists Guild, a non-profit group of artists that has been supporting art and art education in the Prescott area since its founding by Mabel Laurence and famous Cowboy Artist George Phippen in 1949.
 
There will be nearly 120 of the best artists and artisans in the West offering their finest creations for display and sale. There are also arts and crafts demonstrations that will both fascinate and entertain while revealing some of the secrets of artistic creation. Another favorite place is the interactive Kids Art Zone where youngsters of all ages can try their hand at creating real art projects under the instruction of professional artists and crafters. By adding a Children’s Face Painting Booth, a Quick Draw Caricatures Booth and lots of fun Festival Foods, we think we have assembled all the ingredients needed for a really fun and memorable day in Prescott for couples and families alike.
 
On Saturday the Mountain Artists Guild Stage will feature Terry Furlong, former lead of the Classic Rock Group ‘The Grass Roots” and his new band, “Re-Rooted.” Terry and his band will recreate his great hits, songs we have all heard thousands of times; hits like Live for Today, Temptation Eyes, Midnight Confessions and so many more that made The Grass Roots one of the greatest rock bands of all time. Get up and dance, rock along in your lawn chair or just find a place on the courthouse steps to sit and enjoy this great band on Saturday, August 9 from 1-3pm.
 
Resting at 5,300 feet elevation and surrounded by the scenic mountains of Central Arizona, the Prescott Courthouse Square is an exceptionally attractive venue, a joy to exhibitors and visitors alike. Located along Montezuma Street and Prescott's infamous Whiskey Row, one-time haunt of the Earp brothers and Doc Holliday, the Festival site is within easy walking distance of fine restaurants, wonderful and unique shops, art galleries, modern and historic hotels and more than a few places where you can wet your whistle. Parking is easy at the city’s Granite Street Parking Garage, one-half block from the Festival site. This event attracts people from all over the country who enjoy fine art and crafts, music, and a day under the shade of the big trees of Prescott’s Courthouse Square. So set your GPS to 120 S. Cortez Street for the Festival or 135 S. Granite Street for the Parking Garage, both in Prescott, AZ 86303 and get ready to have some fun!

Treasure hunters have been captivated by accounts of the Dutchman Jacob Waltz's life and the whereabouts of his hidden gold mine. Can any tale be more compelling than that long unsolved mystery of millions of dollars of gold lost deep in the Superstition Mountains? The REAL story will keep you on the edge of your seat! Parish's new book examines the tangled trail of truth and fiction that is Waltz's legacy. It tells the tale of a man and his shadowy, previously-overlooked partner, who cheat, connive, manipulate and murder their way through the wicked old west, leaving a trail of blood, bodies and broken promises that over the years have been lost in the wake of the commonly accepted family-friendly legend.

"2014" AIPG and AHS National Conference

The 2014 AHS/AIPG Symposium and National Meeting will be hosted by the Arizona Hydrological Society (AHS) and the American Institute of Professional Geologists (AIPG). AIPG, a national organization, founded in 1963, is the largest association dedicated to promoting geology as a profession. It presently has more than 6,000 members in the U.S. and abroad. The Institute adheres to the principles of professional responsibility and public service and is the only international organization that certifies the competence and ethical conduct of geological scientists in all branches of the science with members employed in industry, government, and academia. Formed in 1985, the Arizona Hydrological Society (AHS) is a nonprofit scientific organization dedicated to advancing hydrology and water resource research, planning, and development. We not only provide an open forum for professionals to exchange information, but we also support public understanding, education, and training in the science and technology of hydrology and water resources. An important part of AHS’s mission is promoting the responsible use, management, and preservation of water resources in the arid southwest. AHS is also dedicated to helping establish standards for the practice of hydrology as a profession. To support these goals, AHS funds meetings, scholarships, grants, symposia, and other outreach and (or) educational activities. The AHS membership consists of hydrologists, hydrogeologists, geologists, geochemists, water quality specialists, chemists, biologists, ecologists, and engineers working for consulting firms, other industries, governmental agencies (Federal, state, county, and municipal), nongovernmental organizations, and educational institutions and organizations. AHS consists of three chapters covering the State of Arizona - Flagstaff, Phoenix, and Tucson. The 2014 symposium will focus on geology and hydrology and will encourage active exchange of ideas between the many disciplines represented. This exchange will take place through plenary sessions, technical sessions, workshops, and an estimated 10-12 field trips to locations in northern Arizona typically within about 2-3 hours travel time. Some field trips will have a duration of 1/2 day, others will be full-day trips. More than half of these field trips will be of a technical nature; however, we anticipate having several field trips for the family members of symposium attendees.

Michael Murphy is a full-time author and part-time urban chicken rancher. He lives in Arizona with his wife of forty-one years and the four children they adopted this past year.
