The newest thing in the desert might be the Saguaro, a hotel brand based on -- what else? -- the colors and casual style of the Southwest. One opened this month in Scottsdale, Ariz., and a second is to open in Palm Springs in February as a redo of the former Holiday Inn at Sunrise Way and East Palm Canyon Drive. The concept was developed by Sydell Group, and boutique hotel operator Joie de Vivre has been tapped to manage the new brand. For the record, 10:45 a.m. Dec. 1: An earlier version of this post said Sydell Group was the creative force behind Ace hotels in Palm Springs and New York.

PHOENIX - Yasiel Puig and other starting position players will be on the field for five innings Wednesday in the Dodgers' exhibition opener against the Arizona Diamondbacks in Scottsdale, Ariz. Clayton Kershaw will pitch two innings, which will be followed by a simulated inning in the bullpen. Puig will play right field and bat third. Manager Don Mattingly is considering batting Puig leadoff this season, but said there's no urgency to slot him there at this stage. Left fielder Carl Crawford, third baseman Juan Uribe and second baseman Alex Guerrero will also play Wednesday.

Omar Amin was browsing for books, but instead he got the boot. The 73-year-old was looking for gifts for his two grandsons in an Arizona Barnes & Noble store when he got a rude tap on the shoulder: It seems a female customer told store officials she was “uncomfortable” that a man was in the children's section unaccompanied by any minor. A store employee told the 73-year-old Amin, the director of a Scottsdale medical clinic, to leave and escorted him out of the business.

Texas 4, Dodgers 0 AT THE PLATE: Outfield prospect Yasiel Puig was one for three, beating out a seventh-inning grounder to shortstop for a single. Later that inning, he was caught stealing. "He did get 50% of our hits today," Manager Don Mattingly said. The other hit came from non-roster utilityman Alfredo Amezaga, who led off the game with a single to right. Amezaga was also caught stealing. ON THE MOUND: Left-hander J.P. Howell inherited a one-out, bases-loaded situation from Brandon League and limited the damage to one run. Javy Guerra returned from a mild groin injury to face two batters, striking out both.

Barrett-Jackson is the granddaddy of the Scottsdale sales in terms of volume of cars sold. Its auctions began on Tuesday and run through Sunday.

CAVE CREEK, Ariz. - Clad in a black Stetson and Tony Lama lizard-skin boots, Mayor Vince Francia adjusted the holster on his right leg. His six-shooter was loaded with blanks. At least 300 spectators milled around the dusty gravel parking lot of the Horny Toad restaurant and bar, waiting for Scottsdale Mayor Jim Lane. This would be a duel, a quick-draw contest between the mayors to settle a dispute over a motto claimed by both towns: Which one is "the West's Most Western Town?"

Zsa Zsa Gabor slept here. So did Tony Curtis . And newlyweds Robert Wagner and Natalie Wood held their wedding reception here. That was all in the 1950s, but the Hotel Valley Ho in Scottsdale, Ariz., remains true to its midcentury roots. The building, which underwent an $80 million renovation in 2005, offers a hip downtown experience that's different from the usual stay at a golf resort in town. Now the Valley Ho kicks off a one-day sale on Monday with rooms starting as low as $89. The deal: Stay up late or get up early if you want to take advantage of the Annual One-Day Sale . Rooms start at $89 for Sundays through Fridays; $109 for Saturdays (prices exclude tax)

The trip to Colorado Springs started badly. Fog had socked in Lindbergh Field, and, because it was a holiday weekend, the America West gate was jammed. People were sitting on the floor or standing elbow to elbow. Weather delays will always be a part of air travel. But, as the minutes became hours, and it became obvious that I would miss my connecting flight in Phoenix, I started trying to imagine Lindbergh Field's future: If this is what it was like on a foggy day in 1989--the second consecutive year that the airport is expected to surpass its 10-million-passenger capacity--what will it be like on a foggy morning in 1999?
