SEDONA, Ariz. — When she moved to this desert community rimmed by spectacular red-rock formations a decade ago, Anita Dalton was the only psychic on the block. Nobody could have foretold what's happened since then. Nowadays, the 4 million tourists who visit Sedona each year can consult dozens of resident psychics, Tarot card and palm readers, astrologers, chan- nelers, massage therapists, healers and other spiritual advisers offering out-of-this-world services — Visa and MasterCard accepted. One woman offers clairvoyant readings and massages. (No chance of her rubbing a customer the wrong way.) All this because thousands of people believe intense natural energy centers known as "vortexes" exist in and around the village of 9,000 people about 100 miles north of Phoenix. "My personal experience is that the energy is just more intense," Dalton said. "I was psychic when I lived in San Diego, but now that I live here I'm REALLY psychic." New Age adherents make pilgrimages to Sedona to commune with ancient Indian spirits, consult psychics and purify their auras with crystals. Backcountry jeep tours take people to the vortex centers, and visitors browse in shops selling runes, New Age books and music and other mystical wares. Deep thinkers attend conferences and seminars in Sedona. Not everyone believes Sedona is built upon grids of natural power. "The only thing I've gotten from all these rocks is tired" walking T KANSAS GOVERNMENT File photo Bell Rock looms over Sedona, Ariz., a town many people believe Is surrounded by Intense natural energy centers known as vortexes. among them, wisecracked Evelyn Baldwin, a Sedona resident for 40 years. "This New Age stuff, I don't believe a damn word about it." Ken Feder, an archaeology professor at Central Connecticut State University, visited Sedona for his book "Frauds, Myths and Mysteries: Science and Pseudo- Science in Archaeology." "Yes, absolutely, Sedona is a magical place," he said. "I wouldn't argue with anyone who says it is. There's magic in the blue sky and the geology that produced those beautiful red-rock canyons." But as far as a mysterious energy emanating from those rocks? "I guess I would just beg to differ that there is magic in Sedona on an occult or mystical level," Feder said. Regardless, the mind-body travelers mean big bucks for Sedona's motels, shops and restaurants. In 1987, about 10,000 New Agers descended on Sedona for what was known as the Harmonic Convergence, chanting, humming and meditating atop Bell Rock to awaken and balance the energies of Earth. The Earth didn't move, "but it was good for the economy," said Mayor Ivan Finley. Finley doesn't feel any special energy around Sedona but doesn't quarrel with those who do. Nancy Lieblick, Lahaina, Hawaii, visited while on business in Phoenix. After a massage, she watched a sunset at a vortex site. She's willing to believe there's some kind of other-worldly healing energy in Sedona. "I was only there a couple days," she said, "but I really felt restored when I got back." Revenue department under fire Magazine article calls Kansas' business environment unfriendly By The Associated Press TOPEKA — The Department of Revenue initiated a series of administrative changes Tuesday, in part to counter a negative image the state has in some business circles. The changes are designed to make the process of assessing corporate taxes more fair and speed up the resolution of disputes between the department and business taxpayers, Revenue Secretary John LaFaver said. The department has come under intense scrutiny since an August article in CFO magazine, a publication for corporate chief financial officers. It asserted that the department was one of the most aggressive in the nation in auditing businesses. The article, based on a survey of financial officers from some of the nation's largest companies, placed Kansas sixth on a list of 10 states to avoid because of their tax policies. It also cited Kansas as having the fourth-most capricious business policies. LaFaver had contemplated some of the changes before the article appeared, but its publication led to speculation that Gov. Bill Graves might replace the revenue secretary. LaFaver won't be fired Graves has said he has no intention of firing LaFaver but said he "What we're doing is cleaning up a mess that, frankly, I didn't make. But I'm going to get it cleaned up." John LeFaver Kansas revenue secretary challenged LaFaver "to do whatever it takes" to reverse the department's negative image. LaFaver became secretary in January 1995, when Graves succeeded Gov. Joan Finney. "What we're doing is cleaning up a mess that, frankly, I didn't make," LaFaver said. "But I'm going to get it cleaned up." Among the problems is a backlog of cases dating back several years. "It's not uncommon for it to take between five and six years in order to even have an opportunity to have an administrative hearing on very large cases," said Lucky DeFries, a local attorney who regularly represents corporations in disputes with the department. LaFaver said he was embarrassed to discover some cases that were 10 years old. To correct the problem, hearing dates will be scheduled no more than a year after appeals are filed. The department also suffers from a perception in business circles that corporations cannot get a fair hearing on tax questions. Doug Lindholm, legislative director of the Washington, D.C.- based Committee on State Taxation, said many companies think the administrative appeals process is a waste of time and money because the department rarely reverses itself. "It is basically seen as a rubber stamp," Lindholm said. Changing perception To change the perception, LaFaver moved the officer who hears appeals out of the division that assigns tax assessments. "When we have a hearing basically in the same offices where the staff is who made the assessment, as good as your hearing officer is, it just doesn't look right," LaFaver said. In addition, LaFaver is implementing an informal dispute resolution process that he hopes will help avoid contentious appeals. To ensure a constructive give and take of information, LaFaver said, the department's legal staff won't be involved in the informal process. "I think the earlier you get lawyers involved, the sooner you run into problems," he said. Sheila Walker, the department's spokesman said, that previously, the agency sent final tax assessments to corporations, which triggered the involvement of attorneys. Now, she said, the department will send "preliminary" assessments based upon the findings of auditors and discuss those assessments informally with companies. ON THE RECORD jU.S. nixed plans to aid Cuban groups !

The fiasco was the subject of an U.S. officials two years ago as they considered ways to promote independent groups on the island. Those opposed to achieving this goal by covert means cited the dangers collaborators would face if they were exposed, the official said. The first account of the administration's deliberations on the issue appeared in Tuesday's editions of the Miami Herald. "We weren't interested in any kind of violent action," the official said. The goal was to create independent power centers, such as labor unions, that, once established, could receive U.S. assistance openly.

In 1995, the United States announced plans to encourage linkages between American church, environmental, human rights and other groups with Cuban counterparts. The announced goal was to develop an independent -"civil society" in Cuba, but Cuban officials have dismissed the effort as an American attempt to create "counter-revolutionary organizations." Little has come of the idea. Advocates of a hard line against Cuba predicted the plan would fizzle because of government resistance. They pushed hard for both the overt and covert plans, contending that the more initiatives undertaken, the more likely at least one would take root, the official said.
