For many young people, a first apartment might be a cramped studio or just a bedroom in a shared living arrangement. Juggling that room’s living, dining and sleeping spaces requires creativity.
What an insult! I received in the mail a glossy, full-color invitation from Pulte Homes to change our CC&R’s. Not once in the entire circular did Pulte fully acknowledge that there is a choice to be made. Not once did Pulte even attempt to rebut any of the substantial arguments and objections which have been raised, such as loss of open space, increased burdens on traffic, schools and other infrastructure, or expectations of the neighboring homeowners that their houses would border a golf course, just like when they bought them.
My congratulations to Susi Fathauer for her letter, “No to more homes, traffic” on July 2, as she scored a hole-in-one. The core issue in play really isn’t about golf “it’s about open space.” We need to protect our environment and the keeping the current open spaces — open does just that.
While all the attention is on The Lakes Golf Course takeover by Pulte, it looks like the Ahwatukee Country Club golf course is going downhill. There are brown patches of grass and it looks like it isn’t being fully watered. Wilson Gee says he’s going to keep the Ahwatukee Country Club golf course, but it appears it’s scheduled to die out also.
The city of Phoenix website, phoenix.gov, has a new look and new features for residents, business and visitors that can be viewed more easily from any mobile device.
What has been a quiet primary just got ugly Tuesday night when Andrew Walter and Wendy Rogers went head to head at a debate in Mesa.
Some types of pears and other fruit don’t change color as they ripen; you have to feel the softening. If you wait too long, you’ll eat overly sweet fruit or have to throw it away. Similarly, if your will has been safely tucked away for awhile, it may have passed its peak financial efficiency unnoticed.

Question: I’ve noticed that the activity level on my business Facebook page has dropped off considerably, but I haven’t been doing anything different. Did something change with Facebook?

I’ve made a habit lately of studying the Amish. I use the word “study” loosely as this is not a simple curiosity of mine or some kind of theological experiment. My exploration flows out of a deep respect and admiration for their faith and spirituality. We English (that’s what the Amish call us outside their communities) recognize them because of their familiar beards, horse-drawn buggies, fine woodworking, or barn-raisings, but there’s a lot more to this group than sturdy furniture and firm dispositions. They have a lively, vibrant faith despite their archaic lifestyles.
After watching and reading about the state treasurer’s debate I thought to myself that with ex-Tempe Mayor Hugh Hallman’s line of “bull” he should be selling used cars. http://www.azcentral.com/story/news/politics/2014/07/08/treasurer-candidates-get-loud-debate/12393627/.
The “Interrupteds” are remodeling, which is a pleasant way of saying that we have ripped off the back end of our house and have been single-handedly air-conditioning the neighborhood for the last month or so.
Light serves a profound function in our lives. Receive too much or too little of it and you’ll experience physical and emotional effects. I remember visiting Alaska in the summer and reading a book by sunlight at 2 in the morning. This was a pretty cool experience, but it made it quite difficult to sleep during my normal times. I also have many friends who live in Seattle and talk about the lack of sunlight they receive on a regular basis. It’s not uncommon for a person to choose where she lives based on the light available in that state. Light affects everything.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) rates the relative quality of the private plans that are offered to Medicare beneficiaries through the Medicare Advantage program. CMS rates Medicare Advantage plans on a one to five-star scale, the highest quality being five stars. This star rating provides an overall measure of the plan’s quality and is an indication of the quality of care, access to care, responsiveness, and beneficiary satisfaction provided by the Medicare Advantage plan. This means that the higher the star rating a plan receives, the more likely you are to receive the care you need, when and where you need it - and most of all, you are more likely to be satisfied with your plan.
