A few weeks ago we got “The LEGO Movie,” an animated feature that looked like a disaster waiting to happen. Since its release, however, the film has become a box office hit and received praise from virtually every human being on the planet, myself included. “Mr. Peabody & Sherman” is another family movie that seemed destined to flop at first glance. A modern day 3-D extravaganza based on a 1960s cartoon that was never even so great to begin with? I smell another “Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle.”
KENTON, Okla. — The Oklahoma Panhandle has never been for the faint of heart.

NEW THIS WEEK
Adopting a pet is a great thing to do! Giving a dog or cat (puppy or kitten) a second chance can be a wonderfully rewarding experience. Unfortunately sometimes it can be quite frustrating when things don’t go as expected. Here are five things to consider before adopting a pet:
LOS ANGELES — If a scared dog bolts from home, it's likely to run as fast and far as it can. But if a house cat panics, it's more likely to slink away and stop at the first good hiding place it finds.
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — Ben Baldanza, the CEO of Spirit Airlines, leans over his kitchen table, takes another look at the board and plots out his strategy.
ATLANTA — Health officials have begun to predict the end of cigarette smoking in America.
A House panel agreed Tuesday to stiffen penalties for those who abuse pets, but only after carving out what essentially amounts to special treatment – and looser regulations – for farmers and ranchers.
Many adults complain that today’s youth is dominated by video games and iPads. But no matter how advanced technology becomes, LEGO will always be there to provide the building blocks for good, old-fashion fun. Every LEGO box is a treasure chest of infinite possibilities, allowing us to construct castles, cars, and entire cities. LEGO has fueled our imaginations ever since 1949. Sixty-five years and 560 billion LEGO pieces later, we get “The LEGO Movie.”
Animal activists are keeping their eye on the Arizona State Legislature this session hoping to pass a few key bills to protect animals statewide.
You may soon find your neighbor raising chickens. Or geese or turkeys or even quail.
After being diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma last June, I was forced to cut back on reviewing movies every week. In between chemo treatments and sleeping for days on end, I’ve made an effort to see as many new releases as possible. Now at the start of a promising new year, I am happy to announce that I am virtually cancer free. Even better, I have a lot of truly great films from yesteryear to talk about.
A local animal rescue organization will be hosting the Spay Pride Parade 5K Run/Walk tomorrow, Jan. 25. at the Kiwanis Park Lake in Tempe.
Calling the right to fresh chicken and eggs constitutionally protected, state lawmakers are moving to override city ordinances that restrict the ownership of fowl.
Ahwatukee Foothills is known for beautiful mountain views but the mountains are full of wild animals that could get dangerously close to people if not addressed in the right way, experts said.
For years, scientists have been dogged by this evolution question: Just where did man’s best friend first appear?
When a dog is shaved down for the summer, can he be embarrassed? When a dog misbehaves toward the newly adopted pet, is he being jealous? When a cat urinates on the bed pillow while her family is on vacation is she being spiteful? When a dog’s litter mate passes after 10 years together, will the surviving dog grieve?
The city of Phoenix passed a somewhat controversial new ordinance Wednesday that bans all pet stores in the city of Phoenix from selling animals from inhumane sources.
Stores are full of colorful ornaments and sparkly décor that set the holiday tone with glamour and panache. But there’s also decor for those who prefer to welcome the season with more homespun serenity.
It’s hard to imagine anyone not liking Disney. Sure, many of us go through a phase where we think we’re too old and sophisticated for Mickey Mouse. This typically leads to our pretentious cynic phase in which our college professors open our eyes to all the stereotypes and “hurtful ethics” Disney has endorsed over the years. Films like “Escape from Tomorrow” haven’t exactly helped the company’s image either. At the end of the day, though, nobody can outrun the magic, good will, and sheer lovability attached to Disney. There isn’t a cold-hearted soul that can’t be completely won over by the mouse house … except maybe P.L. Travers, the author of “Mary Poppins.”
As you know, or if you don’t know, I’ll tell you this: “The Velveteen Rabbit” play is a Christmas story.
With the rush of the holidays safety may take a backseat to the festivities, but local organizations are warning people to be aware this holiday season.
