“Facts” consistently prove the opposite is true when it comes to labels Republicans tag on Democrats. The one that stymies me the most is that Democrats are anti-business.
In what could be the first crack in the state's ban on gay marriage, a federal judge on Friday ordered the state to issue a death certificate for George Martinez that lists Green Valley resident Fred McQuire as his legal spouse.
More than 13,000 Arizona women terminated their pregnancies last year by abortion, a slight increase from the year before.
The first debate between gubernatorial candidates Republican Doug Ducey and Democrat Fred DuVal was what I expected it to be. Their positions on education and jobs are quite well known. Both spoke well, dressed alike and were pleasant. It was what was to be expected.
In the opinion pages of the Aug. 29 Arizona Republic, readers were told for the second time in August about the growing gang problems in the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Community, problems that have spread beyond Salt River and into the East Valley and beyond. Gangs have long been a problem there and continue to grow in boldness. Last May gangsters murdered a Salt River police officer across the street from an upscale Scottsdale neighborhood. Attacks on police and community members are all too common.
An attorney for the state told a federal judge here late Monday it's “unfortunate” — but not illegal — that Arizona will not recognize a man legally married in California as his husband's legal survivor.
The Republicans argue that raising the minimum wage will increase unemployment, increase prices, and make our businesses less competitive. The data does not support these claims. In fact, states that have a higher minimum wage have lower unemployment, and healthier economies.
On Aug. 8, I read an article written by Dan Tamblo, a good writer. I have also read a few other articles about The Lakes and the proposed residential housing project in this paper. I agree with those homeowners (51 percent or more, I hope) who do not support further residential development at The Lakes Golf Course.
To drive down the 101 and admire Talking Stick Resort, Salt River Fields and pristine farmland you’d never guess that beyond the obvious beauty and the increasing wealth of the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community there exists an extremely serious crime problem. A crime problem driven by organized crime gangs with ties to prison gangs and, ultimately Mexico based drug cartels, whose crime sprees don't stop at tribal boundaries, but extend well into the bordering cities of Mesa, Phoenix, Scottsdale, Tempe and beyond.
I wonder how many people are still paying attention to the calamity going on in Missouri?
Claiming illegal political motives, attorneys for Republicans are asking the U.S. Supreme Court to void the lines drawn by the Independent Redistricting Commission for the state's 30 legislative districts.
At schools such as Mountain Pointe in Ahwatukee, students take a fitness education class designed to help them become physically literate and meet Arizona Department of Education standards for physical education. One of the standards requires students to “demonstrate understanding of movement concepts, principles, strategies, and tactics as they apply to learning and performance of physical activities.” Two specific performance outcomes describe student expectations. Specifically students must be able to: (1) “Explain the difference between facts and myths related to physical activity,” and (2) “Identify and describe products that enhance or prohibit levels of physical activity.”
Candidates for governor and their allies have so far spent close to $16 million in the race to come out on top this coming Tuesday in the Republican primary. And that's what we know about.
Lost in all the big statewide races in Arizona's primary election are hard-fought congressional battles in which Democrats are trying to clinch a Phoenix-area seat and Republicans are vying for the chance to unseat Democratic incumbents in three districts.
Five hundred years ago there was a group of Christians living in Europe known as the Anabaptists. These are not to be confused with today’s Baptists, though the groups do share points of common history. The name Anabaptist was not so much a description as it was a condemnation.
We hear Hamas uses children as shields for military (political) purposes and, truth is, it looks like the terrorist group is guilty.
I would like to correct some misstatements of fact in Michael Hinz’s recent Opinion article (“Shame on Gee and Pulte,” AFN, July 20). As Hinz serves as secretary on a board of directors of a large HOA (according to Linda Swain’s posting on the Nextdoor website, he was identified as president; however, the Arizona Corporate Commission records reflect his position as secretary), he should read the document(s) in question prior to commenting on it. If he had, he would have realized that the deed restriction for the former Lakes golf course does not provide Ahwatukee Board of Management (ABM) any enforcement rights, nor are they subject to assessments. In fact, the ABM is not even described in the document. ABM is one of approximately 5,300 “benefitted” parties identified in Exhibit “B” of the document. This consists of all landowners within the (true) Ahwatukee boundary. The ABM was not “seduced” by the property /owner, or anyone else, into not enforcing the deed restriction. In the future, I might suggest a little research prior to bashing a fellow HOA.
Question: I’ve been infected with the CryptoWall virus that’s locked me out of my own files. They are demanding $750 to give me my files back. Is there any other way to unlock my files?
Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton has joined forces with 200 other mayors across the country in a national fight to stop bullying.
Mayor Greg Stanton is one of nine mayors who recently signed a letter to congressional leaders urging them to craft legislation to safeguard against the Supreme Court’s ruling that exempts certain companies from paying for insurance coverage of some contraception methods.
Testosterone is a hormone that does much more than fuel your libido. Testosterone is critical for energy, mental clarity, a strong functioning heart, insulin sensitivity, protein synthesis, building strong bones and muscles, and keeping your brain operating at peak performance. Men produce approximately 10 times more testosterone than women. Testosterone provides powerful anti-aging effects for both men and women. It works with estrogen to keep skin supple, increase bone mineral density, boost mood and ability to handle stress.
About 16 years ago a pair of 5-year-olds pulled up stirrups and slid a jersey over their heads before heading to the baseball field as teammates.
Civil rights groups asked a federal appeals court Monday to let them try to block an Arizona law banning abortions based on race or gender because the statute was passed because of racial stereotypes of – and hostility to – blacks and Asian-Americans.
"My computer is so slow it no longer runs programs, it walks them.” Funny? Sure, but if your computer is slower than molasses, it can be incredibly frustrating trying to get anything done. Many people believe that after a certain number of years, the computer just slows down and there is nothing you can do but replace it. In some cases, replacing an old, out-of-date computer with a newer, more powerful model makes economic sense, but many computers can be cleaned and have their useful life extended for much less than a new computer costs.
Question: How can I tell if my computer has been infected by the Blackshades malware ring that the FBI just broke up?
