For the first time in more than three decades, Arizona voters are not going to get a chance to make their own laws.
It’s hard to believe that approximately 20 years ago, a home demo called “Shine” shot straight up the charts and launched a little-known group from Stockbridge, Ga., called Collective Soul. From there, it was all a blur.
It seems that more and more often, I encounter numerous clients, friends and associates who have been laid off or fired and many others who for one reason or another are out of work and looking for a job. If you are in this group of individuals and looking for employment, it can be a tremendously stressful time as you try and figure out what you are going to do to survive and pay your bills. It becomes even more worrisome to balance survival with the lengthy processes companies implement in their hiring practices.
There is nothing to indicate that Bowe Bergdahl’s behavior in Afghanistan was heroic. For that matter, neither was the behavior of Jessica Lynch, Lori Piestewa, or Patrick Tillman. But they were good soldiers, and that’s more important. The bar of heroism has been lowered substantially by two successive administrations, trying to put lipstick on the Afghanistan pig by showering accolades upon the soldiers fighting it. Any 13-year conflict runs the risk of some stench rubbing off on the soldiers.
For third time in four years, Jordan Kipper has an opportunity to become a professional ballplayer.
Millions of Americans fought and died to establish and preserve our constitutionally guaranteed right to liberty. Why doesn’t that tell our elected officials where our priority lies? Without our liberty our lives, and more importantly the lives of our children, are reduced to centralized government tyranny and slavery.
I have been honored with the opportunity to welcome each and every one of you to the graduation of the class of 2014. At the beginning of this school year, a group called POS MEGA united under one question: what makes a person great? Is it what one says that makes one great? Is it what one once did? Or what one believes and thinks? Or the ability to avoid failure?
If you’re like most people, you think estate planning is only for the wealthy. The truth is that everyone — regardless of how much money they have — needs an estate plan. Here are a few frequently asked questions about estate planning, along with the answers that may help you better understand why estate planning is something you may want to consider.
The opening lines of “It’s For You,” by Douglas Penick, Shambala Sun, May, 2014, caught my attention: “bad news can come to feel a little like falling in love.” In this case, the author received a call from his physician informing him that he had cancer. So what is this about falling in love? What is there to love about learning that one has a life threatening disease?
It was a tough Friday for Desert Vista girls tennis.
The varsity baseball team at St. John Bosco Catholic School (SJBCS) recently won its fourth consecutive Catholic Youth Athletic Association (CYAA) baseball championship.
Arizonans will soon no longer have to leave their homes to gamble legally.
It was a tough Friday for Desert Vista girls tennis.
It’s interesting to think how “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” has impacted every vampire-related movie/show to come out in the past decade, from the forbidden romance in “Twilight” to the topical humor of “True Blood.” Even something as unique as “Only Lovers Left Alive” can be traced back to “Buffy.” The film is a bit like the episode, “Conversations with Dead People,” which satirized independent movies with a supernatural twist. It wouldn’t be at all surprising if writer/director Jim Jarmusch saw this episode and decided to put his own spin on the concept. What Jarmusch delivers is a smart romance that always feels honest, despite the fact that the lovers are both vampires.
The Desert Vista girls tennis team has been the strongest area program all year so it is only fitting that the Thunder girls are the ones to have anyone left in the individual state tournament.
Desert Vista's Melissa Kahn and ViAnn Pham of Mountain Pointe will meet in the Saturday's third round of the Division I state tournament.
Easton Corbin is making a lot of good decisions these days. Luckily for country fans, one of those is to take part in his first-ever Country Thunder concert in Florence this April.
Horizon Community Learning Center (HCLC) will be offering a full-time pre-kindergarten program through its Pre-Kindergarten at HCLC during the 2014-15 school year.

If you are seeking a true athletic and loyal lab, then Ariel might be your girl. She is spayed, microchipped and has all her shots. Her adoption fee is $150.
The city of Phoenix is facing a $37.7 million deficit for the 2014-15 fiscal year and that could result in some drastic cuts to services, including the closure of Pecos Community Center, according to the city manager’s trial budget being presented to the public next month.
Left-wing politicians loudly proclaim their concern for the poor and minorities. But is it a fraud?
Ahwatukee residents, Dianna and John Sanders, both laced up their running sneakers and participated in the second One Run for Boston Thursday evening in Tempe.
This could start in a “way-back-when” manner by comparing how much a gallon of milk or loaf of bread cost in 1944 compared to 2014 — it’s not even a fair comparison without adjusting for inflation. This could begin with a brief waxing about the nature of time and particularly relativity — how 10 or 20 or 70 years go by with little regard until the days end — but that doesn’t feel quite right either.
Deep down at his core Rudy Acosta is a master manipulator.
