Editor’s note: This is the final in a two-part series on the history of Mountain Park Ranch.
March is Women’s History Month. History has not always been fair to women, don’t even get me started on that big fool Henry VIII, who killed his wives for not giving him a son — when science now knows it was all his fault. My middle-schoolers are always extremely upset about the lack of prominent women in ancient history.
I consider the Ahwatukee and Chandler areas that make up District 18 to be very fiscally conservative and not so much socially conservative, yet our legislators continually vote with what their money handlers from the Center for Arizona Policy and ALEC push their way.
As a life-long procrastinator, it’s no surprise that I waited until I was 52 to have my first mid-life crisis.
I’m often surprised at the frequency in which I hear a Christian bring up Karma. As applied, Karma is the great balancer in the universe to right all wrongs and keep each successive day moving along as it should. It might be a warning to a person that a momentary bad deed will come back to haunt them, or an encouragement to a person wronged that retribution is on its way. Spend a few moments sitting at your local coffee shop and you’ll overhear hints of this in the conversations all around you. Whether we profess faith in Jesus or not, most of us live with a deep need for fairness in our daily lives. It’s what makes our world tick.
If you have ever watched “Alice in Wonderland” you probably remember the immortal words of the unpunctual White Rabbit, “I’m late, I’m late, for a very important date!” Whether you are looking forward to college or are already there, now is the time to make it a habit to be early to whatever task, meeting, appointment, party, and class you must attend. I can tell you, now being in the professional world and from my time in college, that if you have somewhere to be, you do not want to be running behind. It’s why I am now committed to the “five minute rule.”
I love my job. Yes, I’m only three months into my new role in church communications, but I’m beginning to scratch the surface of passions I began exploring not too long ago in video production, storytelling, and helping churches communicate their message clearly and effectively. I’m finding purpose and freedom to learn, grow,and be creative in my new role. But, the longer I live in the “real world” of jobs, careers, and long workweeks, I’m finding find that more and more people just don’t relate to the lyrics of a well-known country song, “Doin’ what I love and lovin’ what I do.”

Billy Walker’s wife and sister found a puppy in the middle of 48th Street about a block north of Baseline Road in the mid-afternoon Saturday, Jan. 25.
The stories are endless, and yet they’re still complete outliers.
For more than 10 years I have been attending an Alzheimer meeting at the Lutheran church. I’ve been attending because I’ve experienced Alzheimer’s in my mother, Martha, my friend, Gordon, his wife, Goldie, and my wife, Grace. Each one was affected in a different way. I want to help caregivers (CGs) who are suffering.
Katlyn Youngblood has been named to Bob Jones University’s fall 2013 dean’s list. The Ahwatukee resident is a junior early childhood education major. To qualify for the dean’s list, students must earn a 3.0 GPAe.
Based on his four feature films, it’s clear that Spike Jonze’s mind is nothing short of an endlessly inventive wonderland. He brought two of the most creative screenplays ever written to life in “Being John Malkovich” and “Adaptation.” In “Where the Wild Things Are,” he took a 48-page picture book and transformed it into one of the most emotionally complex family movies of all time. “Her,” the director’s latest outing, is simply a revelation of imagination.
The chapter of 2013 is closed, and by the time this ‘Tukee Talk is published 2014 will be 10 days old, meaning many are still trying to stick to their New Year’s resolutions.
Thinking ahead can save people a lot of trouble when it comes to New Year’s Eve celebrations. The biggest warning from experts is to find a designated driver.
Luke’s Gospel has the fullest account of Jesus’ birth. In Luke 2:11 an angel of the Lord says, “To you is born this day a Savior … who is the Messiah, the Lord.” It’s easy to miss the operative words “to you.”
Most of us have cell phones and likely have had a complaint or two about coverage, billing or spam. You’ve been letting me know about it for months.
When you start out in your career, you’re probably not thinking much about retirement. At this point, your picture of a “retirement lifestyle” may be, at best, hazy, hidden as it is behind a veil of experiences you’ve yet to encounter. But as you move through the years, your view of retirement comes into clearer and closer focus — and this vision will have a big impact on your savings and investment strategies.
Let the countdown begin! As of today, it’s officially T-minus (take 25, then subtract today’s date) days until Christmas. Are the stockings hung? Lights up? Christmas cards in the mail? Regardless if you’re prepared or not, the “most wonderful time of the year” is in full swing.
There was a disc jockey, a pig, and not nearly enough blankets to combat the cold.
My personal mission is to be a spark that ignites positive, sustainable change in the lives of youth. Thankfully, I have an opportunity to partner with key stakeholders in the process of fulfilling this mission (i.e. parents).
I can’t imagine being a Child Protective Services (CPS) caseworker. But I can imagine why most of those men and women went into those jobs: an idealistic view that their work could make a difference in children’s lives, maybe save some kids from horrible fates, maybe find ways to change a dysfunctional family into a loving one.
Are you a member of the “Sandwich Generation?” This designation — which applies to people caring for their aging parents while supporting their own children — may be applicable to you if you’re either a younger baby boomer, born in the late 1950s or early 1960s, or an older member of “Generation X,” born in the mid-1960s. But any way you slice it, being in the “Sandwich” group is probably going to present you with some challenges, particularly of the financial kind — so you’ll need to make the right moves.
Local and family-owned Barro’s Pizza will be hosting its second Holiday Hunger Fight, which is aimed to assist fighting hunger in Arizona and benefits the St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance.
