Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery wants a federal appeals court to give him what legal foes call a “do-over” of his bid to salvage a state law denying bail to many people not in this country legally.
Band is hell. Oh sure, the “American Pie” movies might have you believe it’s nothing but fun and games. Anyone who majored in music or even took band class in high school, however, knows that it’s like prepping for war. The hours are brutal, your teachers push you to be the best, and it’s literally the end of your world if you fail. You might think I’m exaggerating and to some extent maybe I am. After all, not every band instructor on the planet can be a ruthless slave driver. The instructor in “Whiplash” on the other hand most certainly is.
Proponents of Proposition 122 insist that a potentially far-reaching amendment to the Arizona Constitution is necessary to ensure the public gets to monitor how well — or poorly — Arizona does in protecting children.
Not long ago, the FCC issued a proposed rule that I firmly support, as do emergency service dispatchers and law enforcement officials throughout the country. This rule would require standards to be updated so that individuals who dial 911 from a mobile phone can be located just as they would if they had used a landline.
“The Book of Life” has most of the same pros and cons as “The Boxtrolls” from a couple weeks ago. Both films are absolute joys to watch for their delightful characters, unique worlds, and dazzling animation. As creative as they are in terms of presentation, neither film is all that original when it comes to storytelling. “The Book of Life” isn’t just a familiar story like “The Boxtrolls,” through. It’s also a very overstuffed and awkwardly paced one too. So exactly how problematic is the story? Well, read the synopsis below and find out for yourself.
The mystery surrounding the death of former heavyweight boxer Zora Folley, including what actually occurred the night the Chandler resident died more than four decades ago, is the subject of a new book by author and former reporter Marshall Terrill.
A court has set a Dec. 3 hearing to hear arguments in Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's appeal of a ruling that concluded his officers have systematically racially profiled Latinos in its vehicle patrols.
At the Save the Lakes meeting Monday morning at 9:30 there was standing room only. Chairs were brought into the Ahwatukee Recreation Center main hall for many homeowners eager to hear anything positive about the ongoing debacle between Mr. Gee and the homeowners themselves.
Two Ahwatukee Foothills residents and members of Save the Lakes have filed a lawsuit against the owners of the closed Ahwatukee Lakes Golf Course, hoping to get an injunction from the court that would force the owners to restore the land to its former condition.
My friend’s daughter just turned 8 and I was recently reminiscing about having attended her baby shower. I arrived at the party, set my purse in a room with everyone else’s and joined the activities. Most of the women in attendance went to my friend’s church.

It’s been two years since the first beds opened at the Garden of Eatin’ Community Garden at Esperanza Lutheran Church. Now the group is excited to announce they’re expanding quickly with nine new beds open to the public and eight more coming by the end of the year.
As a registered Republican one of the biggest things that worries me about Republican gubernatorial candidate Doug Ducey is his climbing into political bed with Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Why would a guy seek out the support and endorsement form a sheriff who is under federal scrutiny and court ordered regulation, has been shown to be an ineffective sheriff who blew off hundreds of cases involving rapes and child molests, has cost the taxpayers of Maricopa County well over $100 million dollars in misspent jail tax funds, has 30,000 unserved felony arrest warrants in his files, has cost us tens of millions of dollars related to lawsuits stemming from prisoners being abused and killed in his jail and who spent the last decade alienating Hispanics on both sides of the border?
Opponents of extending the 202 freeway to the west part of Phoenix are very vocal and get a lot of press — especially due to their advocacy group Protecting Arizona’s Resources and Children (PARC). (What a name! I’m sure the residents of Yuma, Globe, and Kingman appreciate having PARC on the job looking out for their property and kids). However, I wonder how deep the opposition to the freeway is, even in the local area. I live in Club West and don’t view this freeway any less favorably than any other public highway project. I wonder if other people around here feel the same way.
