Arizona made national news again, but it was not necessarily in a good way. My sister back in Indiana called me last week. She was watching the news and wanted to know what on Earth was happening in Arizona. When SB 1062 passed both chambers of the legislature, a friend from high school who connects with me via Facebook wrote, “Chalk up another one for religion.”
"Red meat is not bad for you. Fuzzy, green meat is bad for you.” For all intents and purposes, I am a vegetarian and therefore believe red meat is bad for you but wholeheartedly concur that fuzzy green meat is way worse. So what does this have to do with computers? There are programs and corporate tactics that are bad for your computer and others that are not so bad. The trick is how to tell the difference!
Washington • When the weather warms up, so, too, will the U.S. economy.
Calling them a federal “dictate,” Sen. Al Melvin convinced Republican colleagues in the Senate to vote Tuesday to scrap the Common Core education standards the state and schools adopted just four years earlier.
Think back to when you were a kid and how you zipped around the playground, parks and black tops. You ran at full speed to get almost anywhere: getting in line at school, running to first base in a kickball game or trying to beat your two siblings to the car, so you didn’t get the horrible middle seat.
It’s easy to imagine how the pitch for “Non-Stop,” the latest action thriller starring Liam Neeson, went down. “Okay, guys, how about this? It’s ‘Taken,’ but on an airplane!”
“How many times has the vocal religious minority been on the wrong side of history and had to be dragged kicking and screaming into line with the rest of humanity?”
SB 1062 has again pushed Arizona into a bad light of radical politics. Has the true majority of Arizona had enough of these radical legislators? Are Arizona voters tired of radical legislators pushing their own political agendas down our throats with no regard to needs of the people or economic ramifications? Radical politics from any party does not belong in our state. All of these radical elected officials need to be voted out.
The first eight minutes looked like an intrasquad scrimmage. The next 24 minutes played out like a team which won the state championship.
One of the pitfalls of being a sports writer is the impartiality that needs to be obtained to do your job properly.
For years Cathi Herrod and her Center for Arizona Policy have flexed their political muscles and pushed through legislation that represented what she calls “fundamental principles,” often those espoused in the Bible.
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.
Saying it will protect students from “maniacal, homicidal” killers, a House panel voted Wednesday to let schools designate one employee at each site have access to have a gun.
Chris Apodaca’s grim childhood began to change for the better when he entered Sunshine Acres at age 10. He had been living on the streets with his sister, two brothers and drug addicted parents for as long as he could remember.
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.
Two miles from my house at a Chandler Walmart, a man was shot and killed following a fight at the customer service counter on Sunday afternoon. The shooter claims self defense and that he was in fear for his life. We have heard this defense before.
Proponents of a change in laws on religious freedom get a last chance today to convince Gov. Jan Brewer to sign the legislation.
To be perfectly upfront, I’ve never been a huge Kevin Costner fan. That’s not to say he hasn’t been good in a few movies such as “Field of Dreams.” He’s even directed some great movies … well one great movie at least. Then in the late ‘90s, Costner seemed to go on a major ego trip, constantly casting himself as mankind’s savior in movies like “Waterworld” and “The Postman.” Now he’s riding the comeback train with effective work in “Hatfields & McCoys” and “Man of Steel.” “3 Days to Kill” is unfortunately a step backwards for Costner. It won’t kill his career again, but it certainly won’t help it either.
Once upon a time, nearly everyone had to wait their turn.
The state Senate sent Gov. Jan Brewer controversial legislation billed as protecting religious freedom on Monday even as two more senators who voted last week for SB 1062 now say that was a mistake.
Gov. Jan Brewer returns to work Tuesday to face a rising chorus of Republican and business voices urging her to quickly quash SB 1062.
Once upon a time, nearly everyone had to wait their turn. In high school sports, it often meant a freshman or sophomore watched while juniors and seniors took to the field, floor or court; kids who’d been in a given athletic program for a few years, and, thus, “earned” their playing time. That’s not often the case anymore for several reasons, but it’s not necessarily a bad thing. It could be a testament to how talented and deep Arizona’s high school basketball pool has filled out: Five out of more than a half-dozen kids from across the East Valley have not only earned roster spots and playing time on elite programs, but, in many cases, are essential pieces to potential championship puzzles during the 2013-2014 state tournaments. There are many more youngsters who were key contributors for teams who, unfortunately, were left out of the playoff picture, and more are coming up the ranks. But it takes a lot to crack the rotation as a freshman on some of the state’s best teams. Namely, it means not playing like a freshman.
The Super Sectional portion of the postseason allowed for missteps.
It’s a fact, when it comes to buying or selling any house the kitchen gets the No. 1 scrutiny and can make or break the sale. It is the most used space in the house and has the most expensive components concentrated in one spot. The kitchen has been the most evolved room in the house and does not look nor function the same as yesterday’s kitchen.
The private sector can always do a better job.
