We had been hopeful that lower Paiute Drive in Taviawk would have been reopened by the end of October or early November but it looks like the road will continue to be closed for a while. Why the delay? Utilities are being installed and a permanent road will replace the temporary chip-sealed road that was built a few years ago. The construction is taking longer than anticipated, due to the difficulty of the depth of the trenching and discovery of rock. Sewer lines have been installed, next storm drains, culinary water and irrigation water, power then natural gas. All of these utilities require fill and compaction between each layer. Unfortunately, the new estimates on completion are after the holidays.

Presented by St. George Dance Company, Synergy is an evening of dance immersed in creativity, community and collaboration. Synergy will be created and performed by a small group of St. George’s strongest contemporary dancers, with pieces set to music that spans the musical stylings from George Gershwin to Duke Ellington.
Not “once upon a time,” but rather precisely on June 26, 1284, early in the morning at seven o’clock (others say it was at noon), a mysterious stranger appeared in the town of Hamelin, Germany, and led 130 children down a street, through the town gate, and into a nearby mountain.
Enjoy chamber music composed especially for an intimate gathering, by Mozart and Schumann, with Soirée Musicale at the Center for the Arts at Kayenta. On piano, Christian Bohnenstenge; playing violin is Urs Rutishauser; on viola is Linda Ghidossi-Deluca; and on cello is Ka-Wai Yu, professor of cello and director of the string chamber music program.
Classically trained veteran artists, the 3 Redneck Tenors were top finalists on “America’s Got Talent,” and have been thrilling audiences since 2006. These boys have seen it all and sung it all, and they’ll make us laugh ’till we double over, reminding us that in life, it’s not just the destination, it’s the journey.
UNFINISHED SONG is the funny and uplifting story of Arthur (Terence Stamp), a curmudgeon old soul perfectly content with sticking to his dull daily routine until his beloved wife (Vanessa Redgrave) introduces him to a spirited local singing group led by the youthful and charming Elizabeth (Gemma Arterton).
This December, Bestor returns to Kayenta to perform “Peace on Earth,” an intimate concert series that seeks to instill peace into hearts at Christmastime. His holiday songs are beloved for their beauty, richness and uniqueness. Bestor loves performing at the Center because, as he puts it, “The 200–seat theatre creates a special, familial energy.
Evenings to inspire curiosity, discovery and wonder. Retired Clark Planetarium Director Ron Smith covers a wide range of topics. Past topics have included: parallel universes, raven intelligence, the newest case for life on Mars, the Tasmanian Tiger, Kilauea, and the end of the world.
Charlie Price faces the impending shut down of the Northampton shoe factory that his family has owned for generations. Just when he feels that all is lost, he has a chance encounter with Lola, a flamboyant transvestite cabaret star. Lola’s desire for stylish, kinky boots provides a glimmer of hope for the factory and its employees.

The Lorraine Boccardo Theater in the Center for the Arts at Kayenta was the setting for nine storytellers to take the stage for the eighth sold out performance of Coyote Tales. The storytellers captivated the audience with lively, funny, and touching narratives based on the theme, “You Gotta Be Kidding Me.” We were treated to a diverse and varied group of tellers who fearlessly shared some of their lives’ most meaningful and interesting events. Visiting storyteller and author, Pam Houston, shared a story of how she finally found “home” on her 120-acre homestead high in the Colorado Rockies. And Bill Wright, another invited teller, added the perfect amount of cowboy-charm and grit with his tale of his difficult and often dangerous work on the range. But I must confess for me, the best part of the evening is always our local storytellers who bravely get on stage to share their stories. It is our belief that through the sharing of these well-crafted stories, we as a community become more connected and involved. We thank you for listening!
If you missed October’s show, our next event is scheduled for, February 7, 2020. The theme for the evening is: “Flawed”. If you would like to get on stage or to purchase tickets, please visit the Coyote Tales webpage. While there, you can also find storytelling tips and tricks and listen to audio archives from past Coyote Tales events.

The quotes above summarize the wonderful conversations we had with animal lovers from all over during INKAS October fundraisers (our table at the Kayenta Art Festival and our annual yard sale).
We so enjoyed hearing the stories of love for those animals that have been rescued and are living happy and healthy lives in their forever homes. Many of the animals in these stories came from the Ivins Animal Shelter, PAWS and RSQ DOGS. Now because of the success of our fundraisers INKAS continues to be a strong and viable resource to the Ivins Animal Shelter, PAWS, RSQ DOGS and other local non-profit animal rescue organizations.
Many, many thanks to “rescue parents” and to our active supporters. Together we can make great strides in ending pet homelessness.
INKAS next event is on November 2nd when we will be hosting our low-cost microchipping clinic at the Ivins Animal Shelter from 10 – 2. Microchipping is the most effective means of having your cat or dog returned to you should it become lost. For more information call Lois Hewitt at 435-414-4802.
