Tomorrow's workshops run from noon to 2:30 at Yavapai College on Sheldon Street in Prescott and 6 to 8:30 pm at the Stone Ridge Golf Course on Bluff Top Drive in Prescott Valley.

The Arizona Sundogs have kept their playoff hopes alive. Last night forward Jason Visser opened scoring and Arizona held that 1 to nothing lead for the first 40 minutes of the game. However, the Corpus Christi Ice Rays would score in the final period to take a 2 to 1 lead. Arizona tied the game then scored another goal to reclaim the lead. The Ice Rays would tie the game at 3 and an overtime period would be played. No one scored in that period and forward Steve Potvin collected the eventual game winner in the 7th round of a shootout for the 4 to 3 win. Arizona takes on the Rio Grande Valley Killer Bees at 9:30 tomorrow morning. All the live action can be heard on the official home for Sundogs hockey, Cattle Country 94.3 FM KDDL or online at

Prescott Valley Police have arrested an alleged stabbing suspect. Police responded to the Yavapai Regional Medical Center East campus for a report of a delayed stabbing. Officers contacted the 20 year old male victim from Chino Valley, who was being treated for multiple stab wounds. Officers learned through an interview with the victim that there had been an altercation at a party in the 6000 block of Tower. Officers responded and located blood evidence at the scene. The 21 year old suspect, Brandon Whitaker was not on scene but investigators were able to contact him by phone. Whitaker gave misleading statements and refused to turn himself in. He was later located at a Prescott Valley residence and taken into custody for one count of aggravated assault. The victim was treated at a Phoenix area hospital and released.
