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.

A 1,500-acre wildfire moved downhill Tuesday and threatened homes at the bottom of northern Arizona's scenic Oak Creek Canyon. The flames were less than half a mile from the highway at the canyon bottom, and power to homes and businesses was being shut down, said Katherine Sanchez Meador, a fire information officer with the Coconino National Forest.

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.

"Sedona, Arizona, 1595" is the fanciful setting for Colin Cox's staging of Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream" at LATC's Tom Bradley Theatre. "Midsummer" dates from around 1595, though Sedona didn't exist then. Cox and his Will & Company troupe pretend that Sedona (actually founded in 1902) was a Spanish colonial town. When the Sedonans venture into the countryside, they mingle with Native American spirits instead of conventional fairies.

In 1902, the U.S. Postmaster General made what to me seems a landmark decision: He rejected the name that was proposed for a new post office in Arizona Territory near the entrance to Oak Creek Canyon. Had he been less bold I might be writing today about an awesome place of mammoth red rocks and sun-bleached pinnacles--a place called Schnebly Station. You can't blame T. Carl Schnebly. He and his bride had come west from Missouri, where he was a hardware dealer.

In the latest crash tests by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, South Korean automaker Kia Motors Corp.'s redesigned 2006 Sedona minivan achieved the best score the group has ever awarded a minivan. With the institute's top rating of "good" for front-, side- and rear-impact crashes, the Sedona outscored even the popular Honda Odyssey and Toyota Sienna models, long the industry leaders in crash safety ratings.

The cozy world of minivans got a bit more competitive Monday, as Kia officially debuted its all-new Sedona. The 2015 people-mover is new from the ground up and replaces an outdated and slow-selling Sedona that's been around since 2006. “Throughout the development process, our engineers in the U.S. and Korea focused on adding the element of desire to the all-new Sedona," said Orth Hedrick, vice president of product planning for Kia. PHOTOS: 2015 Kia Sedona minivan Although "desire" is not typically a word associated with the minivan set, the Korean automaker designed the new Sedona with an emphasis on driving dynamics, style and features, the company said.

My first impression of Sedona was that this peculiar little Arizona town, halfway between Phoenix and the Grand Canyon, shouldn't be a town at all. With its towering red rock formations, hoodoos, buttes and spires rising out of the crimson earth into sapphire skies and its canyons and mountain forests of pinyon and juniper, Sedona is entirely too majestic for people to actually live there.
