Household water use has declined in the United States for the last two decades, mainly due to updated plumbing codes and more efficient toilets and dishwashers. But trading in a green lawn isn’t so easy. That’s why a lot of western cities are offering money for people to get rid of their grass.  KNAU’s Melissa Sevigny reports on Flagstaff’s revamped incentive program.

Northern Arizona is a mountain biking mecca. The sport took off here some 30 years ago, when a few guys strapped fat tires onto cruiser bikes, and began trailblazing the region’s mountains and red rocks. At the start, it was male-dominated, but not for long as women began to climb the sport’s ranks. Now, some of those pioneering riders are mentoring the next generation of female mountain bikers. KNAU’s Aaron Granillo joined them for his first-ever trail ride.
