DEPARTMENTS

THE DISH
Flagstaff’s Cuveé 928 has become a fixture in downtown, literally connected to Flagstaff’s hub, Heritage Square. We visit the warm and inviting winery and eatery and find out about its approaches to haute cuisine.

BY THE BOTTLE
Our resident wine expert offers his favorite bottles to go with the Thanksgiving dinner. He offers up a new kind of choice that pairs well with turkey and stuffing and the diverse flavors.


THE ARTIST PROFILE
Artist David Lash has become one of the best local artists when it comes to capturing the beauty and essence of wild animals. With his art having a longtime presence at The Artists’ Gallery, he also has gained a strong following. We learn more about his inspirations.

SOUND & STAGE
For this month’s Sound & Stage, we partnered with Flagstaff Cultural Partners to present one of its winners of the High Desert Dispatches Writing Contest, Phyllis Thompson, who will read at an upcoming event.

MIND & BODY
We talk with a local fitness expert about some ideas on how to stay active when the darker, colder days move in. How do we take those motivations to run, walk and bike and keep the activities flowing through the winter? How do we fight the holiday temptations?


NATURAL SELECTIONS
When the winter arrives, the desert often beckons. With warmer temperatures and little to no ice or snow, heading to the lowlands is a common practice. With this in mind, we share thoughts on one of the more notable residents of the Western desert: the Joshua tree.

HOME DISTINCTIONS
We share some of our favorite kitchens of homes we toured during the past five years as a fitting tribute to the arrival of the big cooking holiday this month.

BEHIND THE WHEEL
Our resident automotive authority talks about how to both shot and sell a used car, often a daunting premise for some people. .
