Sedona

If you’ve got a reader on your holiday list—including yourself—and you want to go with something local, you might consider the recently released “Journal of Sedona Schnebly.” Told by Schnebly’s great granddaughter, Lisa Schnebly Heidinger, the journal recounts the pioneering family’s arrival in Arizona Territory in 1901. The story chronicles life in Oak Creek Canyon, Sedona and Slide Rock before they became tourist destinations. In KNAU’s latest Southwest Book Review, Mary Sojourner says it will make you fall in love all over again with the beauty of northern Arizona.

When you see a bronze statue of a fallen solider somewhere in northern Arizona, chances are Neil Logan was the artist. He works from photographs and sketches to design large-as-life memorials for war veterans, as well as police officers, firefighters, even K9 dogs. KNAU’s Melissa Sevigny spoke with Logan at his Sedona foundry. For this Veteran’s Day he shares his journey from Vietnam to public art.

Fire restrictions went into effect in several areas of northern Arizona Thursday morning. Officials with the Prescott National Forest have implemented a stage 1 ban, and the Sedona Fire District also put restrictions in place within the city. A ban is also in place for all unincorporated lands in Yavapai County.
