Every year the people of Ahwatukee have a great opportunity to vote for the Best Of Ahwatukee hosted by The Ahwatukee Foothills News.
I rely on the AFN as an important source for local news and services, and I occasionally look at the Opinion page. The statement in a recently published letter by Don Crook that “I know that Obama is a Muslim” is not an opinion, it is an obvious and destructive falsehood. Even political opponents of the President have responded to comments like this by saying that they “take the President at his word” for his Christian faith. The theme of this letter is that President Obama is out “to destroy America.”
Ripped from headlines that still feel wet, "The Fifth Estate" dramatizes the fast, controversial rise of anonymous-whistleblower website WikiLeaks and its figurehead, Julian Assange.
Our current government is a Democrat one. The executive branch, so massive now that our founders wouldn’t recognize it, is 98.5 percent of the government measured by number of employees. The senior body of Congress is also run by Democrats. This government spent its first four years telling America the economy is getting better and anything going badly is Bush’s fault in any event. As the Bush shtick stopped selling as well it became time for a new bogeyman: the Tea Party, which is represented by maybe 10 percent of our Congress.
Each year the Ahwatukee Foothills Chamber of Commerce honors local business women through the Palo Verde Women in Business Award.
A story like that at the heart of "Runner Runner," about a young American gambler who gets sucked way above his head into the criminal doings of a big-time offshore operator, would have found its ideal life as a tough, punchy, black-and-white programmer back in the 1950s. Today, it would have been most viable as a grandiose character study done on an operatic scale by a filmmaker like Martin Scorsese or Michael Mann. What's actually up onscreen in this vaguely ambitious but tawdry melodrama falls into an in-between no man's land that endows it with no distinction whatsoever, a work lacking both style and insight into the netherworld it seeks to reveal. Despite an intriguing setup and Ben Affleck and Justin Timberlake heading the cast, this Fox release holds a losing box-office hand.
The letter (“Local African-American males speak out,” AFN, Sept. 15) written by the four African-American males in response to Linda Turley-Hansen (“Not racism, and not guns; it’s moral absence that’s doing the killing,” AFN, Sept. 16) is replete with even more extreme “assumptions, presumptions, and downright racist stereotypes” than they accuse Turley-Hansen of employing.
Mr. Bryan Brinkley of Arizona People Acting for a Safer Society (AZ PASS) wrote a guest commentary in the AFN on Aug. 30, titled “Should guns be loved more than other people?” in which he seems to be offended that AFN published two rebuttals by a “loud minority in the community” to the stance that he and his organization represent.
The Ahwatukee Foothills News took home some top honors Saturday night at the Arizona Newspapers Association’s Better Newspapers Contest.
Justin Kinkade (“Don’t understand Keogh Parks campaign signs,” AFN, Aug. 9) tells the truth when he states “I don’t get it” in regards to Sal’s political signs that state that lobbyist’s support Sal. Kinkade, reasons, without any proof or facts of unions putting up those signs.
After reading the “Obama the activist” letter to the editor from Don Crook (AFN, Aug. 14), I was just wondering if you printed the letter to show his ignorance or you would seriously print such an anti-American letter in your paper.
The Phoenix Convention Center is getting set to host the first Amazing Women’s Expo this weekend, where local businesses and special guests will join together to give women the chance for relaxation tailored to them.
I’m puzzled over Rick Murray’s lengthy rationalization of the Gang of Eight’s weenie immigrations bill (“Introducing comprehensive immigration reform took courage,” AFN, June 23). It made no sense to me that an American businessman would take such a stance.
When 14 Arizona Republican legislators got out of the goose-step of their party and voted with “We the People” Don Kennedy attacked them for their decision to do what their constituents expected of them (“Will our political beliefs bankrupt us?” AFN, June 30).
Ahwatukee resident Jean Moore and her daughter, Stephanie Siatta, have started a home art party business, and locals are creating favorable buzz about the classes being offered by the mother-daughter team.
In Bryan Brinkley’s letter to the editor (“Richardson’s arguments are absurd,” AFN, May 3) he indicates that he is a man of the law. Then let him try this one on: “The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”
C.W. Griffin is such a hoot ... clueless about what PERCENT means (“Right equates gun-control efforts with demands for universal gun confiscation,” AFN, Feb. 3).
Pete Gitlin’s letter of Jan. 16 (“There is no evil agenda,” AFN) was a breath of fresh air. It was well-written, reasoned and most of all, factual.
Two students from Kyrene de la Sierra won a combined $300 for their school through the Ahwatukee Foothills News Holiday Coloring Contest.

Vital signs. Now there’s a phrase that brings a particular image to mind: An emergency room in a hospital with doctors and nurses flurrying about in life and death struggles; monitors and machines beeping, humming and whirring all clamoring to provide their piece of information as part of the care and treatment being provided. One such piece of vital information is blood pressure.
The article “DV runners look to get over the runner-up hum” in the Sept. 5 AFN inadvertently left out one of the top Desert Vista girls cross country runners because of a coach’s accidental omission. Junior Nicole Hicks should have been listed among the Thunder’s top candidates for the season.
People tend to forget that journalism is an act of service.
