Members of the general public from all walks of life met Jan. 14 at the Downtown El Morro Events Center to talk about ideas for the 2017 ArtsCrawl.

“I think we have heard of some very good ideas,” Rose Eason, executive director of ArtsCrawl, said after the two-hour meeting. “I think it was a good brainstorming session.”

Dozens of people gathered at tables and talked about what they’d like to see in 2017. The sessions were broken into months –...

‘Native Rez Hoops’ a hit with listeners

Hearing local sports just got better with “Native Rez Hoops,” the new name for KYAT-FM’s live broadcast of local high school basketball games.

Local radio station, KYAT-FM, part of Millennium Media, Inc., is the first of its kind to begin broadcasting local high school basketball games in the Navajo language on a 100,000 watt FM station.

The coverage debuted when the boys varsity teams – Wingate Bears took on the Tohatchi Cougars at the Tohatchi High School Gymnasium Jan. 10.
