Using a special version of Chutes and Ladders to demonstrate her point, Sister tells us where we¹ve gone wrong, and no one is excused from her firm belief that "sometimes we feel guilty because we are guilty."

Joint Statement

Wayne Lapierre, Executive Vice President, National Rifle Association
Chris W. Cox, Executive Director, National Rifle Association - Institute For Legislative Action
Judge Sonia Sotomayor's Nomination To The United States Supreme Court

Other than declaring war, neither house of Congress has a more solemn responsibility than the Senate's role in confirming justices to the U.S. Supreme Court. As the Senate considers the nomination of Judge Sonia Sotomayor, Americans have been watching to see whether this nominee - if confirmed - would respect the Second Amendment or side with those who have declared war on the rights of America's 80 million gun owners.

From the outset, the National Rifle Association has respected the confirmation process and hoped for mainstream answers to bedrock questions.  Unfortunately, Judge Sotomayor's judicial record and testimony clearly demonstrate a hostile view of the Second Amendment and the fundamental right of self-defense guaranteed under the U.S. Constitution.

It is only by ignoring history that any judge can say that the Second Amendment is not a fundamental right and does not apply to the states. The one part of the Bill of Rights that Congress clearly intended to apply to all Americans in passing the Fourteenth Amendment was the Second Amendment.  History and congressional debate are clear on this point. 

Yet Judge Sotomayor seems to believe that the Second Amendment is limited only to the residents of federal enclaves such as Washington, D.C. and does not protect all Americans living in every corner of this nation.  In her Maloney opinion and during the confirmation hearings, she deliberately misread Supreme Court precedent to support her incorrect view. 

In last year's historic Heller decision, the Supreme Court ruled that the Second Amendment guarantees the individual's right to own firearms and recognizes the inherent right of self-defense.  In addition, the Court required lower courts to apply the Twentieth Century cases it has used to incorporate a majority of the Bill of Rights to the States.  Yet in her Maloney opinion, Judge Sotomayor dismissed that requirement, mistakenly relying instead on Nineteenth Century jurisprudence to hold that the Second Amendment does not apply to the States.

This nation was founded on a set of fundamental freedoms. Our Constitution does not give us those freedoms - it guarantees and protects them. The right to defend ourselves and our loved ones is one of those. The individual right to keep and bear arms is another. These truths are what define us as Americans. Yet, Judge Sotomayor takes an opposite view, contrary to the views of our Founding Fathers, the Supreme Court, and the vast majority of the American people.

We believe any individual who does not agree that the Second Amendment guarantees a fundamental right and who does not respect our God-given right of self-defense should not serve on any court, much less the highest court in the land. Therefore, the National Rifle Association of America opposes the confirmation of Judge Sonia Sotomayor to the position of Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court.

 - NRA -

Established in 1871, the National Rifle Association is America's oldest civil rights and sportsmen's group. Four million members strong, NRA continues its mission to uphold Second Amendment rights and to advocate enforcement of existing laws against violent offenders to reduce crime. The Association remains the nation's leader in firearm education and training for law-abiding gun owners, law enforcement and the military.

'Alamo' movie set closes in respect of owner's death

Alamo Village in Brackettville is now closed. For decades, tourists have been able to visit the movie set where John Wayne held off Mexican soldiers in the movie "The Alamo,"  

The owner of the village, 93-year-old Virginia Shahan, had kept it open to visitors, trail rides and other movie shoots for nearly 50 years. But after her recent death, the attraction has been closed to visitors until her family determines what to do next.

The movie inspired a generation of would-be cowboys and cemented in people's imaginations an outsized image of the Alamo that dwarfs the real thing in downtown San Antonio.

Whitey Hughes Hollywood Stuntman Nov 1920 - Jul 2009
Whitey Hughes born Nov. 9, 1920, in Arkoma, Oklahoma, died Tuesday, July 7, 2009. Whitey Hughes is a name you may not remember. But you have seen his work. An actor and stuntman in the early years of the westerns we all grew up watching his talents without even knowing it was him. His resume is filled with the names of every major actor of the golden age of movies.

 From 1948 through 1953 Whitey worked for Robert Gilbert Productions as a stuntman and double for such stars its Reno Browne and Lee "Lasses" White in "Red Rock Outlaw" ('50). Whitey was doing stunts on Johnny Carpenter's low budget westerns like "Badman's Gold" (‘51) and "Son of a Renegade" ('53). His first location job was in Lone Pine, doubling leading lady, Lynne Roberts in Tim Holt's "Dynamite Pass" ('50).

Whitey was often called upon to double for women in these early days and would eventually do stunts for such luminaries as Rita Hayworth, Stephanie Powers, Barbara Hershey, Anne Baxter, Lana Turner, Kathleen Crowley and Virginia Mayo ("Along the Great Divide", again on location in Lone Pine). Whitey's credits include work on "The Wild One" with Marlon Brando, "Sitting Bull" with Dale Robertson, "Darby O'Gill and the Little People", "Charge at Feather River" with Guy Madison, "Geronimo" with Chuck Connors and Ross Martin, and Sam Peckinpah's "Wild Bunch".

Whitey was Johnny Crawford's double for four years on TV's "Rifleman" as well as Bobby Diamond's double during the run of the "Fury" TV series. Whitey also worked on "U.S. Marshal", "Californians", "MacKenzie's Raiders", "Black Saddle", "Wyatt Earp", "Lassie", "Rawhide", "Bonanza", "Monroes", "Hondo", "Gunsmoke" ... and hundreds more including work for both Roy [Rogers] and Gene [Autry] on their respective series. To see the caliber of his terrific stunt work watch Whitey in action in almost every episode of "The Wild Wild West", which he coordinated for four seasons ('65-'68). Whitey and his stunt crew do some amazing action sequences.

Whitey spent '70 - '71 preparing his own production, Smoke In the Wind. In the '70s, Whitey worked on series and films such as "Omega Man", "Harper Valley P.T.A.", "Spiderman", "Wonder Woman", "B. J. and the Bear", "Buck Rogers", "Father Murphy", "Fall Guy", "Blue and the Gray", "Little House on the Prairie" and many others. Whitey worked as an active stuntman for over 50 years. He was even in the 1997, "Men in Black" at age 77

 Whitey Hughes, did his final "Take" last week but he will live on in a tremendous body of work forever.



The American Way

I gave a speech to a large group on Patriot’s Day, commemorating the shot heard ‘round the world. Several thousand people turned out on a nice sunny day and to my surprise, constantly interrupted with applause. Seems I touched a nerve with this uplifting piece about what makes America great. Many asked for a copy of the speech. Here it is. Permission to circulate gladly granted.

The American Way   by Alan Korwin

I was fortunate to be invited to a meeting of thirteen deep-thinking well educated men recently, and for two and-a-half hours over lunch we examined some of the critical issues of our time, from our perspective. The question came up, “What Is America?” and I ask you today, “What is America?”

It seems to me this is a question without an answer, because America is as many things as there are people to define it. It is a complex and huge topic that could fill encyclopedias and not scratch the surface.

But it dawned on me that a few fundamental principles of America stand out. These are the principles that have made America great. These are the reasons America is a shining beacon of real hope for the entire world, such as the world has never known. These are guidelines that people have adopted in their hearts, instilled in their families. These are understandings that drive people from their homes across the entire planet and to our borders. These fundamental principles are The American Way, and this can be described.

I’ve been a champion of The American Way for as long as I can remember, and way before I even knew that this was what I was championing. The American Way is hard work. It is keeping the benefits of your hard work. It  is ownership of private property, and the sanctity of a contract between people. It is the idea that you and you alone own the fruits of your labors. It is the idea—of paramount importance—of self ownership. You and you alone own and are responsible for you. It’s a tautology. The king doesn’t own you. The state doesn’t own you. You own you. This is not a right you demand, or get from the state, or earn. It is a fundamental right of the fact that you exist. It is a right that comes from your Creator, by nature. It is the natural order of things. And it is honored here like nowhere else—that’s why we’ve achieved so much.

The American Way is the idea that all you Americans can make something of yourselves, because you are free to do so. This is the great magnet that draws people here. In 2006, net immigration into 78 nations from Albania to Zimbabwe was below zero—people were fleeing. In America in that year, more than two million people, risking life, limb, family and arrest, walked across blinding miles of blazing snake infested desert to get here. That says something. Half got caught and sent back. Half snuck in. Those are  problems for another time, but that raw drive speaks volumes about what we have accomplished that their native lands have not.

In one of the documents that helped start our country, Wealth of Nations by Adam Smith, published in the year of our founding, 1776, he described principles that drive The American Way (although it was too early for him to call it that). Wealth of Nations, in the country’s infancy, identified what has led to unprecedented opulence, prosperity, abundance, opportunity and freedom that is The American Way.

Smith recognized that private property, free trade, self interest, limited government and division of labor were the basics of capitalism and cornerstones of personal freedom and economic security.

So these are the factors that make you and me special, and make the land we live in special, and attract many non-Americans to this special place, seeking to be Americans. But along with the teeming masses yearning to be free are undesirable miscreants seeking to leach off our success, eat out our substance and do us harm, who must be resisted.

Col. Jeff Cooper put it plainly: Some people prey on other people. I don’t like it. That’s just the way it is. So I ask you: Do you intend to preserve, protect and defend these special attributes that make us what we are?

You bet we do! Will you resist the constant forces that seek to diminish, denigrate, defeat and delete these special attributes? You bet we will!

The American Way can be summed up, not perfectly, and not for all cases, but it can be summed up for our purposes: The American Way is the idea that the people are the rulers and the rulers are the servants. Have we strayed from this? Yes. Does that make it less true or less valuable or less right? Not at all. The American Way is the rule of law, individual responsibility and government of limited delegated powers only. It is free markets, free enterprise, low taxes, entrepreneurship and capitalism. The American Way is moral and just and yes, has a strong religious underpinning, whatever your religion may be—so long as your religion does not include forcible coercion of others. It is “Do unto others as you would have others do unto you,” but definitely not, “You better submit to our way,” no matter how strongly convinced that your way is right. Convince people to follow and you follow the precepts that drive much of what we are. Force people, and you are by definition the enemy of The American Way. Neither political party has a really good score card on this. The American Way is what has generated the most opulent, abundant, prosperous, generous, productive, creative, inventive and loving society the world has ever known, light years ahead of whatever is in second place. Our politicians have lost support because they’ve abandoned our goals. The idea that such a land could even exist was beyond the comprehension of earlier societies—the ideas that made it possible had not been invented yet. The uniquely American ideals of freedom were born here. They were birthed by a lucky confluence that skeptics might say were coincidental. True believers might say it was destiny, or divine providence. And who knows who’s right. The important thing is that it happened.

Our natural geography, limits of technology, self-selected pioneers and thinkers in a brave new land, the abuses and usurpations of a tyrant, the homogeneous nature of voluntary leaders, simultaneous existence of so many geniuses in one place and one time, an abundance of natural resources, existence of such vast expanses of untapped wilderness—all contributed to the damn lucky creation of the Declaration of Independence, Constitution and Bill of Rights that set us on our way.

When people are turned free to do what they will, they do what we have seen here. Acting in your own self interest, you persevere, plant and harvest great seeds of innovation and wealth. And great wealth results from the work of your loins. True Americans, recognizing the great blessings that have been bestowed upon us, share those fruits, like no society before us has ever done. Americans donate and share more food, more wealth, more health care, more humanitarian aid, more power of righteous self defense, than the world has ever seen—without exception.

And what of guns? Guns, guns, guns, they are so American. All nations have guns, but only in a scant few do the people have guns. And only in America is there a wildly western tradition of a gun for everyman. Only in America is there broad understanding that guns save lives. Guns stop crime. Guns keep you safe. Guns deter evil. Guns are good. Colt, Remington, Winchester, Browning, Smith and Wesson—is it just coincidence that Americans have guns, and use guns, and have invented some of the finest firearms ever known—and the fact that America has been the freest nation on earth? It is not coincidence. Guns are why America is still free. We know and easily accept that you can’t let slaves have guns and expect them to remain slaves. Does that mean that if the forces of darkness were to succeed in their endless effort to disrupt our long-standing balance and disarm peaceful, innocent Americans, that America would be devolve into slavery? Is it safe to confiscate guns from the innocent? I’m not eager to find out! Why is it safe to give all those dangerous guns to other people, just because they have government jobs and are paid with your tax money? Why can they be trusted any more than any of you who actually earn the money that pays them? What magical writing says guns are OK but only if rulers have them all? Where does it say that a man in government is more trustworthy than a man in his own home?

We know that just the opposite is true. It is our resistance to the bad idea that only leadership should have power that put power into the hands of the people and created The American Way. It is the understanding that the power to govern is only legitimate if it comes from the consent of the governed. When the power to govern is disconnected from consent, you have classic tyranny, no checks on leadership, only those latitudes leadership arbitrarily decides to offer. That, my friends, is the Anti- American Way.

Guns are indeed why America is still free. Guns in the hands of the masses help assure that leadership cannot just run wild. It stops them short. Guns are power to the people.

Slaves must be disarmed. Americans must never be disarmed. A disarmed docile subservient America would cease to be the magic magnet it is. Now, there’s corrosion in the aging machinery of The American Way. Jefferson’s warning that the natural tendency is for liberty to yield and government to gain ground is true, and 200 years of yielding and gaining have taken us to a strange place.

Our great strides forward are at grave risk today. The idea of true human freedom, freedom from the state, freedom from arbitrary rule, appeal to a power higher than any government or man can exert—these are what give us what we have. Today, far too many people, influenced by dastardly powers, reject the very things that give them the

power to speak out against us. We are now infested with czars—a drug czar, an education czar, an environment czar, and now even a border czar. Czars are horrors yet we’re embracing them, welcoming them into our midst. Czars are toxic waste, destroyers of freedom, autocratic tyrants who have no place in our system. Yet they are praised and promoted with glee by our failed “news” media. Tolerance of czars is a repugnant result of the insidious success of political correctness. Czars should be removed and replaced with representatives.

But our representatives need to be replaced with representatives, because they’ve long since left the scene. We have reached a point where our laws are written by secretive government operators and clandestine conspirators, creeps working in deep basements without the light of public scrutiny, who draft endless edicts that cannot be read by a person of decent education. The edicts are thrust upon our elected hollow men, who are coerced and intimidated into signing before they have read what they are handed, and saddle us with unacceptable, anti-American crap whose contents they don’t know. Think about that. The laws are now written by people you don’t know, can’t name, can’t see,  signed by people without reading or understanding, and then held against you at the point of a government gun and prison. That, my fellow Americans, is corrupt. It is tyrannical. It is intolerable. Our elected participants should fall to their knees in shame and tears for what they are complicit in forcing upon this great nation and its people. But they show no shame. They justify, and excuse and continue. How much further must that travesty go on before a few heads are on pikes on the K Street bridge? A bridge, by the way, actually named after Francis Scott Key, the author of the Star Spangled Banner. Tyranny has its appeal. Especially in the young, a desire to follow rather than lead burns hot. It’s easy to be sheep, to obey, to stand in line, take what’s handed you, care not for the higher values. They are far from the roots that got this tree growing. And their schooling, run by the very government that schooling is supposed to tame and keep in check, encourages the collectivist antithesis of The American Way. Freedom is hard work, but worth it.

Socialism, the Anti-American Way and our arch enemy, seems easy, because it runs on other people’s money and sweat. Too many Americans today have had their values turned upside down and actually crave socialism, or can’t even tell the difference between craven collectivism and freedom’s liberation.

We have our share of difficulties, and our ability to surmount them looks increasingly grim. And when you’re the big dog, as freedom has made America, people and groups and nations and even ideologies nip at your feet. The have nots, the do nots, the know nots, freeloaders and the useful idiots wound up into a frenzy by people of ill will and a disgraceful media, seek to take you down. Seek to hurt you. Seek to diminish your accomplishments, cast aspersions on your greatness, work to undermine your success, mean-mouth your achievements, deny, rewrite and twist history to say it isn’t so. They would rather pick at the nits than recognize how far America has drawn humanity out of the primordial goo. Americans know our greatness. America haters hate our greatness. Too many of our own countrymen are misled, misguided, propagandized and brainwashed into hating—blind fuming hatred—of the very hand that feeds them.

America haters are the most pernicious, deceitful and hate-filled enemies of all that is good and prosperous and productive and beneficial to humanity. Too many exist within our midst, in our Congress and schools and newsrooms and within the bureaus of the czars. And they are clever, and devilish in their cunning, and left unchecked they will indeed ruin the greatest society the planet has ever seen, and then dance in the bloody gore of the havoc they reek. If you believe in The American Way, if you have benefited from The American Way, if you want your children and their children and generations to come both here and abroad to bask in the glory of The American Way, then you need to rise up—in all your righteous glory and indignation—and denounce the siren song of those who would rend and ridicule what we have achieved. You need to always say the obvious, and flatly refuse to participate in the debilitating socialist disease of political correctness! Don’t joke about it, which reinforces it, denounce it! You need to substitute e pluribus unum—“From Many, One” for the leftwing sickness of multicultural divisiveness. You need to know that belief in limited government, low taxation, delegated powers, free markets, free enterprise, gun ownership, religion and personal responsibility makes you a moderate not an extremist. Those who tell you to reject these core American values, they are the extremists. The extremists are calling the moderates extreme, and the media helps sing that song. Clinging to The American Way makes you a centrist, a moderate centrist. Only a vile and corrupt media could see it otherwise and then promote an upside-down cake of the truth. You must loudly and publicly reject laws that violate the separation of Congress and the States, laws that violate the 10th Amendment by delegating forbidden powers, laws that grow government illegally, laws that use color and sex and language to force compliance, quotas, and deceptive non-equality.

Equal treatment under the law, not enforced treats and benefits through income redistribution. Special treatment to favored groups is the behavior of tyrants. We are and must remain a nation built on merit and compassion, not central dictates and giving away your money to other people. You can do all these things, and keep America at her heights of glory. You can for generations to come preserve all the things that made America great and this shining beacon of liberty it has been for more than two centuries. You need to ask yourself, of every proposal that comes down the pike from central government, state government, local government, media pundits and all others who profess to know what’s right for you, “Does it maximize freedom?” Does it maximize freedom, that’s the question. That’s the benchmark. If it maximizes freedom, it’s good. That’s what our Founders knew. That’s what got us to this great pinnacle of success from which we are now slipping. If it would do good but does not maximize freedom, it must be rejected. If government could take action—but has no authority to do so, it must be rejected. There is always another way. The American Way.

Thank you, and may God bless America.

Be Glendale Monsoon Ready. When the storm hits, it’s best to keep your family safe at home. But, there are still dangers to be on the lookout for. Read the following tips to make sure your family and home are as safe as possible before the rain and wind begins.

• When a storm is coming, turn off all unnecessary power equipment to reduce the draw on power companies. Storms are prime times for power outages, and conserving energy will help everyone in the event of emergencies.

• Have extra light and power handy. Keep batteries, flashlights and a battery-operated radio or TV on hand to keep you informed during severe weather.

• Do not burn candles for light. Use flashlights for emergencies as a candle can easily be bumped, which can lead to a fire.

• Stay off the phone. Even cordless phones can cause a shock when lightning strikes nearby. Use cell phones only if necessary.

• Avoid plumbing fixtures. Do not bathe or swim during a lightning storm because lightning can travel along metal pipes.

• Keep away from windows. High winds can blow heavy debris and shatter a window.

• Protect your pets. Don’t forget to gather up the family pets before the storm hits.

Lost your power? Follow these tips on what to do when the lights go out.

• Turn the big items off first. Switching off high-usage items like computers and televisions will help prevent overloading the system. It will also protect your electronics from voltage fluctuations when power returns.

• Use surge protectors. These simple and affordable devices can provide extra protection to expensive electronics. Find them at any electronics or home improvement store.

• Tune in for information. Turn on your battery-powered radio or TV for updates on the power situation.

• Keep the cool air inside. Limit how often you open doors.

• Keep your freezer and refrigerator door closed. This will maintain the cold air already built up inside and help protect your food.

• Know your neighbors. It’s always good to get a helping hand and offer one when it’s needed.

    Coleman Exec to Run 100 Miles for Camp Mak-A-Dream
    WICHITA, Kan. (July 6, 2009)—Scott Henrikson, Sr. Vice President Americas’ Sales for The Coleman Company, Inc., is taking on one of America’s most grueling outdoor challenges—a 100-mile ultra marathon across Colorado high country—to help bring awareness to Camp Mak-A-Dream, a special camp for children, young adults and families affected by cancer.
    Henrikson will represent Coleman and Camp Mak-A-Dream in the Leadville (Colo.) 100 Trail Ultra marathon, August 22-23.
    “At Coleman, we’ve always known that spending time in the outdoors benefits body, mind and spirit, and we recognize a compelling purpose for connecting kids and families outdoors at a camp such as Mak-A-Dream,” Henrikson said. “I’m especially motivated to reach out to kids and families who may be in desperate circumstances and give them a chance to share in the uplifting experiences that happen in the outdoors.”

    Camp Mak-A-Dream is a medically supervised, cost-free Montana experience where the outdoors, activities and friendships offer life-changing escapes. Since opening in 1995, the facility has hosted thousands of campers and provides a safe, supportive environment for having fun, making memories and life-long friendships, connecting with others who understand the things they’re going through, and most importantly, feel ‘normal.’
    Coleman recently announced a charitable giving and awareness campaign to benefit the camp, operated by the nonprofit Children’s Oncology Camp Foundation. “We hope that everyone who understands the power of spending time outdoors will join us in supporting this cause,” Henrikson said.

    “The Leadville 100 features a high-altitude course ranging from 9,200 to 12,620 feet in elevation. Less than half the racers complete the course within the 30-hour time limit. It’s going to be torture but it’s nothing compared to dealing with cancer. I’m hoping that we can help make a difference for a cause that we at Coleman are very passionate about,” added Henrikson, an accomplished marathoner and triathlete.
    Martin E. Franklin, Chairman and CEO of Jarden Corporation, Coleman’s parent company, will join Henrikson in the run to bring awareness to Camp Mak-A-Dream.


    Franklin, also a veteran distance runner, said, “Races like this are great equalizers. It doesn’t matter who you are, what you do for a living, male or female, young or old, it’s all about just getting through it. In some ways, it’s symbolic of cancer itself. We’re honored to take it on as a challenge in the name of Camp Mak-A-Dream.”
    Bios of both athletes are posted at www.coleman.com/campdream .

    Camp Mak-A-Dream is 65 miles east of Missoula, Mont. Facilitated by healthcare professionals, experienced staff and enthusiastic volunteers, campers enjoy hiking, horseback riding, fishing, swimming, making s’mores around the campfire, gazing up at the stars—all the things that healthy kids do at normal camps. Because for these campers, everyday life is often anything but normal.
    The camp includes four modern cabins, an 11,000-square-foot lodge, an art studio, health center, maintenance building, pool, hot tub, archery range and ropes course. Operations depend primarily on individual donations, memorial contributions, corporate gifts and fund raising events.

    Keystone Resort opens the mountain for summer
    KEYSTONE, Colo. - Keystone Resort opens the mountain for summer today (Friday, June 26th) and for the first time, Keystone will offer summer snow tubing just steps away from hiking and biking on top of the mountain.

    Summer has arrived on the mountain at Keystone Resort, but the Resort was able to save a little winter to give guests a memorable experience by offering winter snow tubing during summer operations. Guests can whiz down the tubing hill on the snow and then enjoy summer activities like hiking, mountain biking and mountaintop dining.

    As the only summer snow tubing hill in Colorado, at 11,640 feet, Keystone's Adventure Point opens with two lanes of snow, Wednesday through Sunday from 10 to 2:30 p.m.- while the snow lasts. Tubing sessions last for one hour and guests can take an unlimited number of runs for $25 per person. Tickets are available at the ticket window in River Run and the price includes a gondola ride to the top of the mountain. Guests are encouraged to play on the snow and then participate in the numerous summer activities Keystone offers.

    "With the success of the tubing hill in the winter, we wanted to try and offer our guests a unique and fun experience by tubing on the snow during the summer," said Matt Hoover, tubing hill manager at Keystone Resort. "It's definitely summer time here at Keystone, but at our high altitude we can offer the best of both worlds to give guests an unforgettable on-mountain experience this summer."

    Steps away from the tubing hill, The Keystone Bike Park is home to some of the country's best downhill trails and will be opening with a full range of progressive terrain for riders of all abilities. Guests can take their bikes up the new River Run Gondola, in its first summer of operation, between the hours of 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and gain access to some of Colorado's most exhilarating expert downhill challenges with rock gardens, rock drops and high-speed features. Beginner and intermediate bikers can enjoy roller coaster rides over bridges and berms without the steepness or technical challenges in other areas of the park. Both daily tickets and season passes are available for purchase at ticket windows. An adult, unlimited run day lift ticket is $35. An adult, Unlimited Season Pass is $299. Rental bikes are also available at Keystone Sports in River Run Village.

    Mountain-top dining also opens for the season Friday, June 26th. Two scenic gondola rides take you to both the Alpenglow Stube and the Der Fondue Chessel. At 11, 444 feet, The AAA, four diamond-rated, Alpenglow Stube is the highest fine dining experience in the country. The Der Fondue Chessel is a perfect family outing and provides an authentic fondue experience complete with Bavarian style music and chicken dancing. Mountain-top dining is available Wednesday through Sunday beginning at 5 p.m. For reservations please call 970-496-4FUN.

    Keystone is also offering a new Lunch and Lift package where guests can take a scenic gondola ride to the top of Dercum Mountain, enjoy the spectacular scenery and have lunch on the patio at the Summit House for $22 Wednesday through Sunday until September 7.

    Guests can also enjoy a weekend in the mountains at a reasonable rate with lodging deals starting at $99 a night. Package deals, including activities such as rafting and unlimited mountain biking, start at $92 a person.

    Big Boys and Toys Show
    Pictured is Poet and Screenwriter David Bertram having a great time at the Big Boys and Toys Show at the Phoenix Civic Center, Friday thru Sunday, Jun 19th - 21st. Bertram enjoyed talking to people one-on-one at the Kangen water booth. He also won an IPod in the hourly drawing held at the Jeep/Dodge booth.

    Although attendance was a a little on the light side most vendors felt the show was a success in bringing them into contact with good potential clients. The mood was in this economy this is the best we can expect.

    AZKangen had a team of 6 reps rotating through the show and reported signing up well over a hundred potential clients for FREE water deliveries to try their alkaline ionized micro-clustered water. 

    "Even in tough economic times people are concerned about their health. Most realize our world is very acidic and they want to do all they can to counteract the effects of acid foods and pollution on their bodies. Kangen water can give them the means to do that with alkaline water, the healthiest water in the world. Not all water in the world is the same," Bertram said.    You can learn more about it at www.azkangen.com
