CHINLE, Ariz. – The time to find your spot for the the 32nd Central Agency Fair held in Chinle, Ariz., Aug. 26, was not on Saturday, the day of the parade. Rather, it was the day before, on Friday.

Actually, for a great spot Friday you needed to get there in the early afternoon, but if you didn’t at least get there by Friday night anything resembling a decent spot was gone, with tents lined up alongside the road saving spaces for family and friends.

Eva Silversmith of Chinle said, “we learned from past years not to be on the side with the sun right in our eyes.”

The festivities started off with Daren the D.A.R.E lion, who was giving hugs and encouraging kids to say no...

TSAILE, Ariz. — Heather Williams said it just came down to where she’d feel comfortable.

Sunday afternoon event resonates with community

Classic cars, classic roast coffee, and a classically good time – all were on hand Sunday at Camille’s Sidewalk Café’s “Cars and Coffee.”

In its third year, the event is already becoming a Gallup institution. Each Sunday from roughly April to November, car enthusiasts gather at Camille’s to show off their latest project, to trade stories, and of course to sip on some world class coffee. The cars, and motorcycles too, are as varied as their owners.

You have newer cars like Daniel González’s 2016 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. Stock, Gonzalez’s Hellcat is pushing 707 horsepower and can go 0-60 in 3.6 seconds. But...
