There are so many variables when it comes to winning a state title in any sport.
High school is a time when students are trying to decide what type of person they will become later in life.
I have always enjoyed this time of year. Even as a child growing up in Chicago, fall afternoons meant playing baseball with a sweatshirt on or running through piles of fallen leaves, some of which were raked quite neatly and I mischievously found joy in rummaging through those piles as well.
Is it me or does it seem this time of year things seem less stressful, more fun, and energizing?
Jalen Brown isn’t about to reflect completely even though he is only three weeks from graduation.
Christmas is right around the corner and Lamb of God Lutheran Church in Ahwatukee will put together its annual live nativity scene to further the holiday spirit for the entire Ahwatukee Foothills community.
As we approach Thanksgiving, and the weeks that seem to race towards Christmas, there’s plenty to be grateful to God for in our lives. Thanksgiving invites us to take time to consider all of our blessings. While some of us may be thrilled with the material things of life, many of us look around and realize that the most important things in life aren’t things at all. They’re our relationships. That’s our relationship with God in Christ Jesus, as well as our relationships with family, friends, and neighbors. Shortly after Thanksgiving, Christians begin another season of intentional reflection: the season of Advent. Since we’re giving thanks and taking time to celebrate all our relationships, let’s take a closer look at the one relationship that changed the world.
Thanksgiving. A holiday started long ago that currently finds its way into homes of pumpkin scents, laced around glazed turkeys, cranberry sauce, and good-ole mashed potatoes. Yet the Thanksgiving holiday is not just seen as a time to celebrate that we all love to eat, and the food coma we eventually fall into afterwards, but a day to stop and think about what we are truly thankful for.
It’s a meeting of holidays so rare it will be tens of thousands of years before it happens again. Thanksgiving and the first day of Hanukkah — the Jewish Festival of Lights — fall on the same day this year, creating what many celebrants have dubbed “Thanksgivukkah.” And it’s opened up a whole new world of culinary opportunities.
Seton Catholic Preparatory High School students participated in a morning full of programs on Nov. 12 including a flag raising ceremony, several educational sessions about the real reason we celebrate Veterans Day, and a veterans ceremony where the student body prayed the Rosary for the United States and sang “God Bless America.”
The current struggle of wills regarding universal health care (Obamacare) and the debt ceiling has polarized our nation into those who believe in fiscal responsibility versus those who believe in unlimited spending. Conservatives vs. Socialists. Democrat and Republican appellations haven’t been used because there are conservatives and socialists in each party.
National Adoption Month has special meaning to several Ahwatukee Foothills families who’ve chosen adoption to grow their families.
The Arizona Center for Afterschool Excellence has nominated Lauren Woodworth, Kids Club program coordinator for Kyrene de la Sierra Elementary School, for this year’s Outstanding Afterschool Professional Award.
Jordan Rezac was a coach’s son, understood the game, and was a football player long before he buckled his chinstrap his freshman year at Desert Vista.
In the past few months since I retired, I have taken a great interest in watching our community very closely. I now have the time to see how Ahwatukee functions in the day time, something I rarely saw when I worked — never had time to do so.
My wife and I have lived in the Lakewood community in Ahwatukee for 18 1/2 years. When we moved here in 1995 we still had an 8-year-old daughter living with us. She entered third grade at Kyrene de los Lagos, completing fourth and fifth grades there. She went through sixth, seventh and eighth grades at Akimel and graduated from Desert Vista in 2004.
Every member of the family deserves to have a little spirituality in their lives — even those with four legs and fur.
"You will know her name," scream the posters for the new big-screen version of "Carrie," as if anyone could forget it after seeing Brian De Palma's brilliant 1976 movie or reading the original Stephen King novel.
The way someone handles the unexpected and/or adversity says a lot about who they are.
Brad Evans is in the middle of his transition.
Tom Patterson shamefully degrades our elected President in his extreme right wing “Tea Party” fashion. His articles are so far to the right they are offensive to those of us whom respect President Obama, as he was elected President by “We the people.” God bless America.
I am in agreement with Phoenix Councilman Sal DiCiccio on pension reform (“Why we need real pension reform — you decide,” AFN, Sept. 13). DiCiccio was elected to represent “We the People.” Politician’s beware because being the fair minded Sal, he will not overlook his and his peers’ pensions. Let’s get them in the news as to how long it takes for an elected person to gain a pension, and list those pensions in the AFN.
Rates are down and values are up, which most of us know is generally a good sign that it might be time to consider a refinance. However, there are several less obvious factors to consider that may also indicate that it’s a great time to refinance. Here are just a few:
Many health complaints, inability to lose weight, and underlying causes of disease can be attributed to gastrointestinal (GI) dysfunction and poor digestive health. As quoted from Hippocrates, “All disease begins in the gut.” GI dysfunction is the most overlooked and mismanaged disorder in health care today.
