The Phoenix City Council has approved a plan that will allow the owners of Club West Golf Course to access less expensive water through abandoned reclaimed water pipelines.
Robert Rodriguez's "Machete Kills" is a sequel based on an end-credits joke from a film that was itself based on a joke trailer contained within a half-joke grindhouse homage. Exactly how many degrees such an endeavor is removed from anything resembling serious cinema would require Jean Baudrillard to calculate, yet for more immediate filmgoing purposes, all there is to see here is a surprisingly long-lived gag finally running out of gas. As violent as its predecessor yet noticeably duller and less outrageous, "Machete Kills" is dragged to the finish line entirely by its director's madcap energy and an absurd cast of major stars in strange cameos.
In the early days of the Food Network, chefs taped shows in kitchens where sinks emptied into buckets that had to be carted out between takes. One chef’s original set had no oven, so he improvised by lowering the dish out of view, then stamping his foot to imitate the sound of an oven door shutting. A former stripper was the chief financial officer.
The precedent was set with Desert Vista’s first athletic Hall of Fame class one year ago.
The American recording artist and entertainer is among the top 20 of the Top Pop Artists of the 1990s with over 100 awards including a Grammy Award, three American Music Awards and seven Billboard Music Awards. In her newest 2012 album “Two Eleven,” Brandy returns to her R&B sound.
Successful film soundtracks have to complete a pair of difficult tasks. They must creatively echo the film they enhance and also stand up on their own.
Comedian, writer, actor, and co-creator and executive producer of the hit ABC series “My Wife and Kids,” Damon Wayans might just leave his audience in stitches after five shows at Stand Up Live. He's also known for performances in Major Payne and The Last Boyscout, among other films, and the 1990s TV series "In Living Color."
If “Bridesmaids” was the female version of “The Hangover,” then “The To Do List” could be considered the female version of “American Pie.” You could also call it the female version of “Superbad,” the raunchier version of “Easy A,” or the 1990’s version of “Sixteen Candles.” No matter what you compare it to, “The To Do List” still stands out on its own as a funny, cute, and gleefully vulgar comedy. Much of this has to do with the film’s star and first-time director/writer, both of whom we ought to be seeing more of in the future.
The waka-waka chorus of Pac-Man munching and the upbeat du-du-du-du backdrop to Mario’s adventure drown out hushed voices and softly padding footsteps.
Quinn Cooney of Mill Creek, Wash., is excited about starting high school in September, but she’s not looking forward to waking up at 5:30 a.m. to arrive on time. Classes for ninth-graders start at 7:30 a.m., 45 minutes earlier than they did in middle school.
In the 1990s valuable medical research began to appear on using acupuncture and Chinese herbs, along with patients doing In Vitro Fertilization (IVF). What was known for thousands of years with patients not having Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) is that Chinese medicine increases a couple’s chance of getting pregnant. With a German study being published in 2002 they found that it increased the patients success up to 60 percent. After this study many countries, including America, have conducted their own studies. Over and over again the results are the same. Acupuncture and Chinese herbs increase the percentage rate of a woman’s chance in getting pregnant.
I received a postcard in the mail several weeks ago announcing a public hearing on May 21 to provide an opportunity for the public to provide comments on the Draft Environmental Impact Study on the proposed South Mountain Freeway. None of my neighbors received the same postcard when I talked to them. Why were some of the public left out of the mailing? They may not have been informed of this public hearing, but I have comments to make.
Editor’s note: This is part one of a continuing summer series on the proposed South Mountain Loop 202 Freeway.
There's a siege mentality about Michael Bay's movies, as though viewers are the enemy holed up in a bunker and he's the guy ordering heavy-metal music around-the-clock to wear down our morale and force us to surrender.
Jim Heath doesn't worry that his style of music will go out of style.
While most 10-year-old girls would be anticipating new dolls and toys for their birthdays, Kyrene de la Esperanza Elementary School student Natalie Stevens collected donations instead.
By now it's clear that nothing and no one can kill Bruce Willis, whose fifth film in the "Die Hard" franchise, the horribly titled "A Good Day to Die Hard," opened last week.
The Phoenix City Council has given approval for the Phoenix Public Transit Department to buy buses that use compressed natural gas: a big change for Phoenix, which now has the country’s largest liquefied natural gas bus fleet. The new 120 Valley Metro buses will use CNG, which will save the city a net $4 million.
I must disagree with Mr. Robert O’Meara, “A shadow in the hallway near the Lincoln Bedroom,” AFN, Jan. 30, when he says that Bill Clinton has no other interests in life outside politics. His interests range far and wide.
I was struck by something while watching the recent swearing in ceremony in Washington. I caught a glimpse of Bill Clinton (just Bill, no Hillary in sight — although I am sure she was with him somewhere) sitting two or three rows back from where the action was happening.
It’s that time of year to hand out some honors for the year’s best. So it is without further ado that I bring you the Third Annual Hammer Awards.
Just turned 50, Tom Cruise is eligible for membership in the American Association of Retired Persons. Just split from third wife Katie Holmes, Cruise is the object of told-you-so cynics who simply knew that romance wouldn’t last. Just finished with his stab at something really different as a heavy-metal rock god in “Rock of Ages,” Cruise is coming off one of the lowest-grossing movies in his career.

Mountain Park Community Church in Ahwatukee Foothills is hosting its annual “Surviving the Holidays” event Thursday night for those dealing with loss and grief.
The beginning of the wrestling season is so much different than the end.
