Going back to school is a hectic time for families; juggling supply lists and schedules is enough to make any parent frazzled. It’s easy to understand how safety may sometimes take a backseat during these preparations. As a leader in traffic safety, AAA suggests all families take this important quiz to brush up on their knowledge to ensure a safe start to the school year.
Lynne Avril packs every summer to spend it in Paris. She commutes to work in Ahwatukee wearing her pink flannel pajamas, feeling the cool cement floor on her bare feet as she patters from bed to studio. She may sit with the morning sunlight warming her back and continue until her eyes grow tired from the bright glare of the lamp perched on her desk. Maxie, her recently groomed puppy, is snuggled on the white leather chair nearby. White pieces of paper conceal most surfaces with countless sketches venturing to show a story written by another. She expresses her thoughts with black lines and passionately coloring outside of them, endearing characters evolve. A teetering stack of paper plates splotched with carefully chosen paint colors are her pallets and labeled with names like Amelia, Ruby, Nellie Sue or Sadie. Just a few steps down the narrow hallway her front bedroom displays her work. Tall bookcases hug the walls, parading the colorful books she brings to life.
It takes a lot for a film based on a video game to impress a crowd these days, given the dazzling advancements in gaming technology. But "Need for Speed," based on the hit EA Entertainment racing game that's sold 150 million units, could now drive some of that success toward the box office.
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.
Brenda Priddy seems like a real nice lady. The Chandler wife and mother, who once worked as a bookkeeper, is friendly from the moment we say hello, and she readily answers my long list of questions despite fighting an awful head cold.
As a leader in driver safety, AAA recognizes the recent strides our legislators have made in making Arizona roads safer. Fewer children will be killed in motor crashes, thanks to our stronger child passenger law. In addition, stranded motorists, roadside assistance crews, and road maintenance now receive the added protection of our Move Over law. And in 2007, we made modest improvements to our state’s graduated driver license (GDL) law, providing a safer learning environment for young drivers by minimizing passenger distractions and nighttime driving risks.
I have Olympic fever, I love the Winter Olympics and so far in the first week, I haven’t been disappointed. Since my dream of participating in the Olympics was nothing more than a pipe dream, I’ve decided to create my own. I’ve watched many Olympians that thank their mom (and dads) for all the support over the years to help them win a medal. Why should the kids have all the fun, why not have our own Olympics or “Mom Olympics.” We don’t need to worry about a winter or summer season since being a Mom Olympian is a year-round pursuit.
Maybe you work long hours. Maybe you or your spouse are away for work many weeks out of the year. Maybe you’re a single parent. Or maybe your kids are all different ages. But no matter what your family situation is, you wish to find some sort of fitness regimen, which will fit into your busy schedule, as well as find something that everyone can be involved in and have fun in the process.
Let’s face it. Dogs ARE a part of your family. No matter how you want to look at it, we are less stressed and more comfortable when our pets are with us. With this said, over 70 percent of pet owners now regularly travel with their pets.
I’m tired of reading Bill Richardson’s articles where he rallies against any sort of regulation over guns (Latest, “Gun-free zone is truly fatal conceit,” AFN, Dec. 11). His entire argument is to make good the enemy of perfect. He continually gives statistics about how individuals who want to do bad things will do bad things. I agree.
