Many times these are ad blockers or privacy monitoring tools. Check your add-ons, and turn off things and reload the site. You can turn things off one by one... and reload, and see if the site comes back and then determine which add on is the culprit.

This is Dick Estell.  I would like to apologize for the problems our daily book-reading program has recently suffered.  I have been assured that the problem has been identified and been corrected.  Thank you for your patience and understanding.

On Monday, Feb. 3, KANW will air the skipped Thursday and Friday episodes of the “Radio Reader.” Thursday’s program will air at 8:30 am followed by the Friday program at 9. Dick Estelle is currently reading "Duel with the Devil." We apologize for an inconvenience this may have caused our listeners.

On Thursday, Jan. 30, KANW mistakenly repeated Wednesday’s episode of the Radio Reader.  The corrected episode will air on Friday, Jan.31 at 8:30 am. On Monday, Feb. 3, KANW will air Friday’s episode at 8:30 am and Monday’s episode at 9 am.  Our apologies for this inconvenience.  Thank you for listening to the Radio Reader on 89.1 KANW.

FARMINGTON, N.M. (AP) — A Navajo Nation Council committee has voted against legislation to remove council Speaker Johnny Naize because of pending bribery and conspiracy charges.

The Daily Times reports that the committee voted twice Thursday to table the legislation sponsored by Delegate Alton Joe Shepherd.

However, the legislation still advances to the council's winter session, which starts Monday in Window Rock.

Delegate Shepherd says his legislation is intended to preserve the integrity and image of the council's speaker.
