KNAU and Arizona News http://knau.org en Brain Food: Soft Ticks and Relapsing Fever http://knau.org/post/brain-food-soft-ticks-and-relapsing-fever <p>Soft ticks are arachnids, like spiders. They live in pine and hardwood forests and thrive on the blood of mice, squirrels, chipmunks and sometimes birds. They don’t usually feed on humans, but, as in the case that closed Camp Colton near Flagstaff recently, it does happen once in awhile. Northern Arizona University Forest Entomology Professor Rich Hofstetter explains.</p><p> Thu, 21 Aug 2014 12:00:00 +0000 Bonnie Stevens 51829 at http://knau.org Brain Food: Soft Ticks and Relapsing Fever KNAU News/Talk 91.7 Flagstaff is back on air http://knau.org/post/knau-newstalk-917-flagstaff-back-air <p><span style="color: rgb(20, 24, 35); font-family: Helvetica, Arial, 'lucida grande', tahoma, verdana, arial, sans-serif; line-height: 20px;">KNAU News/Talk 91.7 is back on the air.

It’s designed to safeguard vulnerable areas near Flagstaff against wildfire and mitigate some of its most destructive after effects. In 2012, Flagstaff voters approved $10 million for the project and now the Forest Service has proposed four options for possible treatments, including cable logging, something never before done in the area. Arizona Public Radio’s Ryan Heinsius recently spoke with the project’s manager, Erin Phelps, and asked, “What exactly is cable logging?”&nbsp;</p><p> Fri, 15 Aug 2014 12:00:00 +0000 Ryan Heinsius 51588 at http://knau.org What Would Cable Logging Mean for the Flagstaff Watershed Protection Project?
