Flagstaff vet to visit GC Kennel

Dr. Fred Bush will be at the Grand Canyon Kennel on Tuesday, Dec. 11, from 12:30-2 p.m. Dr. Bush has provided veterinary services to the Grand Canyon area for 28 years.

Call 928-779-4565 for more information or to make an appointment. Walk-ins are also welcome.

Drama students staging plays

The High School and Middle School drama classes plan performances in early December.

Admission will be $2 with refreshments for sale. Both are in the school multi-purpose room.

The High School drama production of "The Commedia - Princess and the Pea," written by Lane Riosley and Rebecca Le Byars, will be on Thursday, Dec. 6, 6:30 p.m.

The Middle School drama production of "No Place Like Nowhere," written by Andrew Ross, will be on Thursday, Dec. 13, at 6 p.m.

In "The Commedia - Princess and the Pea," Arlequin is afraid he'll be stuck playing the role of the pea, but he ends up getting to play the prince.

The troupe romps through a series of hilarious princess tests with great slapstick humor. A fairy godmother is in this story? Rosetta's playing the role, whether the troupe likes it or not!

"No Place Like Nowhere" asks what is there to do in the middle of Nowhere? Just ask a temperamental movie star, the paparazzi, secret agents, a crooked congressman and two brothers putting on a two-man production of "Romeo and Juliet." Add 500 tons of toxic waste and chaos and hilarity ensue.

Project to affect hikes on Hermit

Hikers on the Hermit Trail will face restrictions into fall 2008 when construction begins on Hermit Road next April.

In April and May and September and October, hikers can use the Hermit Trail to enter the Canyon, accessing the trailhead via free early-morning shuttle buses from the Backcountry Office.

Starting in April until the project is completed, no one will be able to hike out at Hermit Trail regardless of starting point.

The trail will be closed from June-August.
