Sedona is getting a performance hall to match its setting: an outdoor amphitheater that seats up to 5,500, set amid the much-photographed red-rock scenery on a knoll on the outskirts of the Arizona resort town. Named for the St. Louis Rams owner who helped fund it, the Georgia Frontiere Performance Pavilion, opening Friday with a concert by the Phoenix Symphony, will be Sedona's largest performance venue, officials said.

Larry Gorum lives among the red rocks that make this a mecca for the rich and those drawn by its mystical, New Age appeal. Within earshot of babbling Oak Creek and in the shadow of sheer, 1,000-foot canyon walls, his home is just a block from the trendy craft shops and cafes that line State Route 89. But aside from the view, it isn't much of a home. Since arriving several months ago from Albuquerque, N.M., Gorum has lived in a beat-up trailer the size of a mini-van parked in Hawkeye R.V. Park.

The awesome Arizona landscape that lured early Western movie makers and, later, New Age energy-vortex seekers to Sedona is still mesmerizing, providing hikers with excellent trails below fire-red cliffs and along cascading creeks. Arizona Highway 89A links Sedona with Flagstaff, 30 miles to the north, and is one of America's great scenic drives. Along the way, a dozen trail heads tempt hikers with the promise of 1,000-foot sandstone walls towering above lush Oak Creek Canyon.

Half-price Hathaway shirts are, perhaps, not reason enough to pack up and head for Sedona in the red-rock heart of Arizona. But a bargain is a bargain, and as long as you're there anyway. . . . Which I was recently for four crisp days. The Hathaway factory outlet on Highway 89-A also sells marked-down labels of Christian Dior and Ralph Lauren--from pleated tuxedo shirts to rugged denims and flannels. Each week has specials: silk ties for $6.

Kia Motors Corp.'s Sedona minivan suffered more than $4,000 in damage during a low-speed bumper crash test because its air bags deployed, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety said Wednesday. The Sedona had a total of $9,747 in damage in four crash tests, a performance the insurance industry-sponsored group rated "poor." The insurance institute said the air bags went off when the Sedona's front end was crashed into a flat barrier at 5 mph.
