Posted: August 20, 2014

If you turn on the television, or open your mailbox, this year’s election is being dominated by a slew of topics with immigration, gun rights and personal attacks being the most common. Each of these issues obscures what should be the most important priority in this election: the future of education in our state.

Rodriguez: Walters is the clear choice for CD9
Updated: August 21, 2014 - 4:34 pm

I have come to know why, for many Americans, “politicians” is a bad word. Most of the people I know are frustrated with a Republican led Congress and a Democratic majority in the Senate unable to work together on issues that are important to the American people like immigration reform, the national debt, Social Security, international conflicts and many more concerns we are all, as Americans, hoping will be addressed soon.

DiCiccio: National small business group lists Phoenix in top 5
Updated: August 21, 2014 - 4:34 pm

This summer, the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) named Phoenix one of the top five cities to open a new business.

The importance of popcorn should never be underestimated
Posted: August 15, 2014

This is embarrassing, or at least it would be if I had any hope of pretending that I wasn’t doing a perfect impersonation of an ex-nun. But my feckless, impetuous youth has recklessly sailed and sunk in the harbor, so you may as well know the truth.

Tamblo: Learn to say NO!
Updated: August 21, 2014 - 4:34 pm

NO! Tell this message to Pulte and Mr. Gee. Remember, these guys are NOT our friends. They are not trying to “work with us.” They are rolling right over us. They have meetings filled with convenient conversations. This is like petting your cow just before butchering it. NO! I have been around these travesties before and years afterward neighbors are shrugging their shoulders saying, “Gee, we got taken again.” Don’t let it happen to us. They cannot promise a density of homes in our golf fairways until they get final permission from the Phoenix Planning and Zoning Commission.

Updated: August 12, 2014 - 11:58 am

Books are written to help readers change their perspective on life, to go after their dreams, and to help shape us all to become the people we are going to ultimately become someday. They are written to help us learn about the past, give us insight to current events, and to prepare us for the future. When children are given a book, they are given a key to another world that will help expand their mind and start to show them what their interests are. And what better place to exercise their creativity than by that of a bookstore.
