Center Lecture Series
“Dark Energy and Dark Matter”
Lecture by Ron Smith

Ron SmithWednesday, Nov. 8th, 7:00 PM
Tickets: $7 – advance purchase suggested

Astronomers have made an incredible discovery.  All the light we observe in the cosmos, as well as all the galaxies we observe, make up only about 4% of the energy/matter of the universe.  About 73% of the universe is “dark energy,” which causes our universe to expand at an accelerating rate.  Another 23% is dark matter, which provides a “gravitational glue” to hold galaxies, as well as clusters of galaxies, together.

Ron Smith, retired astronomy professor and planetarium lecturer, will tell the story of how astronomers feel confident that our universe mainly consists of matter we cannot see and energy we cannot directly observe.

You won’t want to miss this cosmic detective story about one of the most compelling mysteries of our time.

Coyote Tales

Coyote Tales Storytelling

Do you want to hear a great story?

Sold Out

“When you work at a jail you have to get used to working with people who are angry, trapped, frustrated, anxious and scared…and that’s just the staff…”

The Lorraine Boccardo Theater in the Center for the Arts at Kayenta was the setting for a dozen storytellers to take to the stage for the second sold out performance of Coyote Tales. The warm and encouraging audience welcomed twelve mildly anxious but willing performers to the spotlight to share their tales about lessons learned. Stories ranged from the value of acting on your inner truth, to the realization you can’t trap love in a cage, to other tales of how experiences can educate us in interesting ways.

The evening began with a pre-event cocktail soiree sponsored by Petite Feast and  Kayenta Development for ticket holders. The pre-party provided a celebratory atmosphere and (a bit of liquid courage) for attendees to pony-up and put their name in the hat in the hopes of getting on stage. The performances began with a silly story of a “boyfriend audition” gone wrong, soon followed by an unexpectedly serious story of a Chicago jail worker’s doubts about her profession. Each performer graced the stage with their unique take on life’s
lessons learned. The evening was a roller-coaster of emotions. We laughed, we teared-up, we squirmed, we reflected, but overall we were mesmerized by the authenticity of each story and its presenter.

As always, the goal of each event is to foster community spirit through the telling of well-crafted stories. Coyote Tales hopes to build on the shared connection between the teller and the audience. Our stage is a no-pressure arena to celebrate our diversity, our community and our experiences.

GET THE WHOLE STORY
If you were unable to attend, you can hear the stories by visiting the Coyote Tales story archives on our website at http://coyotetales.kayentaartsfoundation.org/lessons-learned/
Let us know what you think!

Our next event is scheduled for February 13, 2018. The theme for the evening’s stories is, ENCHANTMENT. If you are interested in getting on stage, contact Victoria through our website and get the whole story at http://coyotetales.kayentaartsfoundation.org/

Twelve Native Milkweeds for Monarchs

Abby Barber   |   February 27, 2015

The monarch butterfly population in North America has plummeted by over 90% in just the last 20 years.

Destruction of America’s grasslands ecosystems, commercial agricultural practices and even conventional gardening have all contributed to the precipitous decline of this iconic species.

One of the biggest factors in monarch decline is the increasing scarcity of its only caterpillar host plant: milkweed. Without milkweed, monarchs can’t successfully reproduce and the species declines. By planting milkweed in your own garden, landscape and throughout your community, you can help reverse the fortune of these beautiful insects.

Make it a goal to include a few of these lovely plants in your courtyards to help the monarchs. Refer to the vendors in the Kayenta Landscaping Regulations document available on the Kayenta HOA website or local nurseries for seeds or plants.

Here are 2 of the 12 Milkweed listings from the article.

The full article and information on all 12 Miklweeds is available at http://blog.nwf.org/2015/02/twelve-native-milkweeds-for-monarchs/.

Growing Conditions: Needs lots of water, shade tolerant, moist to wet soil

Plant Size: 2-5 ft (60-152 cm)

COMMUNITY ADVOCATES

INKAS – IVINS NO KILL ANIMAL SUPPORTERS
~ Connie Butterfield ~

Ivins no-kill animal supporters

In September INKAS sponsored booths at the Santa Clara Car Show and Swiss days. The September weather proved ideal for games, rides, vendors and the parade. Turn out was strong and a big highlight was seeing Tess, the Santa Clara K9 dog who had been seriously injured in the line of duty participate in the parade. Tess was with her handler, in full health and “back to work” serving the community. Truly an inspiration for all the love and care that went into saving her life.

All of us at INKAS continue to be inspired by the generosity of the residents of Santa Clara and Ivins. It is because of donations raised at events such as the Car Show and Swiss Days that INKAS is able to come to the aid of the homeless animals and support the Ivins No Kill Animal Shelter.

But of course there is just plain serendipity when coming to the aid of a homeless animal. Recently a mother and daughter were in Ivins on an errand and got lost! In an effort to turn around they ended up in front of the Ivins No Kill Animal shelter….which until that moment they didn’t even know Ivins had a shelter! On a whim they went in only to find themselves coming out with a new member of their family! They said it was love at first sight! Stories like this keep INKAS volunteers motivated to do our best to raise funds to support the shelter and to have all “shelter stories” be successful.

INKAS kept busy in October too and on Oct 20th and 21st we held our second yard sale of the year. The Spring yard sale was so fun and successful and so many donations came in that INKAS decided a second sale would be a fun way to celebrate Falltime. Again we had a huge turn out and we want to thank all those who stopped by and purchased new treasures. All the money raised will be used to support those animals in need.
