Police in Kennebunk, Maine, have released a list of 21 men charged with engaging a Zumba fitness instructor for prostitution, the latest twist in a case that has rocked the small town and prompted a court order to identify those accused of purchasing sex. The names of the men charged with the Class E misdemeanor of engaging a prostitute were formally released on Tuesday in what is probably just the first wave of identifications. The men are among a group of more than 150 accused of patronizing Alexis Wright, 29, who taught the Latin-flavored musical fitness program known as Zumba.

Monumental stone cathedrals and spectacular cliffs in brilliant oranges and reds await hikers in the Kolob Canyons, the northwestern corner of Zion National Park in Utah, which offers the region's natural wonders minus the crowds. The Finger Canyons of the Kolob, as they're sometimes called, have some of the most spectacular scenery in the Southwest, but many visitors to Zion never see them because they're not accessible from Utah Highway 9 and the central part of the park.

Botched elections, tumbling stock markets, falling employment and soaring energy costs. America could use a little pick-me-up, and some of us would do well to get a taste of the wonders that made our ancestors love this land. When it comes to seeing your homeland anew, there's no better way than with the fresh eyes of a tourist. Even better, see it cheaply, in the company of foreigners. For that, you can't get much closer to the ground than a Green Tortoise tour.
