"Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right.” said Oprah Winfrey. I am not a big fan of New Year’s resolutions, but I do believe goals should be set, worked for, and attained. If one of your resolutions has been to get your computer more organized, the best place to start is creating folders to store your important documents, pictures and emails in a place where you can easily find them.

The state bird of Arizona is a sweet little fowl called the cactus wren. We also have a state gemstone (turquoise), a state reptile (ridgenose rattlesnake), and I’m willing to bet we even have a state predatory arthropod, which would be that scorpion I killed under the Christmas tree yesterday.
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.”

Sandra Hopkins, 61, went to be with Our Lord and Savior, Sept. 22. Born March 16, 1952 in Oneonta, N.Y., Sandy was a compassionate, inspiring, radiant and loving wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, friend and mentor. She is survived by Bob, her husband of 30 years; daughters Casey (Aaron) Hopkins-Johnson and Delaney Hopkins; sisters Donna (Fred) Murray and Linda (Ron) Avolio; nieces and nephews, Allison (Murray) Covell, Michael Murray, Brian Ulmer, Daniel Ulmer, Matthew Ulmer and Katelyn Harrison. She was preceded in death by her parents, Geraldine and Richard Aldrich. We rejoice that Sandy is now pain free and with the God she loved and served.
In “Prisoners,” director Denis Villeneuve is allowed the privilege few lesser known filmmakers have these days: The chance to not only make a multimillion-dollar American movie with A-list actors, but to also see his vision to the end. It would have been easy for the studio to step in and dumb this material down to another Hollywood thriller. Watching the film, you feel nothing short of grateful that the project was helmed by Villeneuve, whose “Incendies” received an Oscar nomination for Best Foreign Film. Give him an intelligent script by Aaron Guzikowski in addition to a faultless cast, and you’ve got a recipe for one of the most distinctive crime dramas since “Mystic River.”

My wife and I left Iowa some 20 years ago to see the world. We lived in France, Japan and the UK before returning to America last December. We settled our family in Ahwatukee so our children could be closer to their grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. But we are deeply troubled that something went very wrong in our country while we were away. We don’t want our kids to be gun violence victims.

It’s no surprise that Chelsea Bain has been attending NASCAR races since she was 5 years old. Her dad, Emmett “Buddy” Jobe, brought NASCAR to Phoenix International Raceway in 1987. Now, Bain is more involved in NASCAR than she ever has been, but not as a spectator — as a rockin’ country musician.
