Two things about this 3-year-old Maine Coon Mix: She is a girl, despite being named Charlie and she only has eight of her nine lives left. A Good Samaritan rescued Charlie as a stray and left her at the Humane Society in a box that didn’t provide enough ventilation on a hot Phoenix day. Happily, Charlie made a full recovery.
Some slightly cheaper turkey and a big drop in the price of those doughy brown-and-serve rolls is going to make the Thanksgiving dinner a bit less expensive this year.
HERE: Ahwatukee After 5 Evening Mixer Nov. 19
Spending days surrounded by empty boxes and packing tape may not seem glamorous, but it’s a job Ahwatukee residents Kelli and Ted Tamez say is more exciting than it seems.
Stephen Hawking is somebody we often view as a deep thinker, but not necessarily a deep feeler. Most people seem to assume that he’s just a giant brain and a voice box. Anyone who’s seen Hawking in interviews, though, will tell you that he has a wonderful personality and sense of humor. In “The Theory of Everything,” we learn that Hawking’s life isn’t merely defined by his contributions to the scientific community. Rather, his life is truly a love story about family, finding passion in your work, and celebrating human existence.
Lucky Duck Consignment, a seasonal children’s consignment sale in Ahwatukee, recently donated children items to benefit Tempe Union High School District’s Teenage Adolescent Pregnancy and Parenting (TAPP) program, which assists teenage parents in the district.
As consumers continue to change how they shop it’s important for businesses to learn that the purchasing funnel has changed. Today’s shoppers are in search of convenience, they want it yesterday, they look at reviews, are not as inclined to visit the enclosed malls as much, and are getting more comfortable with ordering products online. The interaction with consumers has changed over the past 10 years and is more complicated than ever before.
It was a performance that was reminiscent of years past.
The meetings for defensive coaches preparing for Mountain Pointe are taking a little longer these days.
Now that they have released the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) for the South Mountain Freeway (SMF), ADOT has become very cocky about telling Ahwatukee residents that the SMF is a “done deal.” This is a dark strategy to try to get residents just to give up and let it happen.
Flame, a beautiful 2-year-old cat, was left in an abandoned apartment in a rolling file box with food and water. A maintenance worker heard her crying and brought her to PetSmart where our caring volunteers jumped into action. As we pulled her from the file box, she was very relaxed, calm and started purring as soon as we picked her up. Flame now is safe in her new foster home while she puts on some weight and waits for her perfect forever home, where she will never be left behind again.
It may be hard to believe, but you could have money waiting for you right now, and not even know it.
Paul Lucas exerted so much energy on a career night he had to pause and take a bow.
When Disney acquired the rights to Marvel, nobody knew what to make of the union. With one best known for wholesome family entertainment and the other geared more towards intense action intended for older audiences, would they really blend well together? “Big Hero 6” is clear-cut evidence these two innovative companies are a match made in heaven.
A brief look at a map of the greater Phoenix area would indicate the blatant lack of any freeway system serving the southwest quadrant of the area. The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) plan since 1985 has been to develop this system with a bypass connecting Interstate 10 west at 59th Avenue (current preferred option) to I-10 east at Pecos Road.
Desert Vista is down, but that doesn't necessarily mean the Thunder are out.
Senior Night played out exactly the way it was supposed to for Mountain Pointe even though one of the most important ones didn’t take the field.
Halloween doesn’t only bring out the ghosts and zombies — it’s also full of plastic wrappers, one-time costumes and wasted pumpkins, but some simple tips can help you make your holiday a little more sustainable.
The Desert Vista badminton team stormed into Xavier College Preparatory with their sights locked on the state championship.
The granite countertops, energy-efficient appliances and high-end cabinets inside the apartments at Liv Ahwatukee are just the beginning of a long list of reasons why Ahwatukee’s newest apartment complex is also its most interesting.
In high schools across the nation today, teenagers will dutifully shuffle in to their classes, take their seats, and learn facts that they could easily Google. In doing so, our schools waste both the teachers’ and the students’ time and energy (and the taxpayers’ money) by focusing too much on memorization, too much on information that anyone with an internet connection and a vague understanding of how to use it can find in less than ten seconds.
Lil Bit is a 5-year-old dilute torti Maine coon with gorgeous light blue eyes. She and her siblings came to Lost Our Home after their owner passed away. Lil Bit can appear a little shy at first, but eventually will trust those new to her. Overall, she is a very sweet cat who likes to be around other cats and people. She likes to play with toys, climb on top of a tall cat condo to watch others, and enjoys being brushed. She will require a calm and loving family to take care of her and give her a safe place to live.
Desert Vista earned just its third win this season on Friday, narrowly escaping with a 36-22 victory over the Corona del Sol Aztecs. For the Thunder, it's the team's second win in as many weeks.
With the bye week comes a chance to tinker, and Mountain Pointe might have done a little bit of that as the Pride football team had two days of conditioning and three days of practice.
