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.
It’s one thing to have a beautiful, comfy bed. But what if it also included a TV screen, game console and dimmable, color-changing lights?
Local and family-owned Barro’s Pizza will be hosting its second Holiday Hunger Fight, which is aimed to assist fighting hunger in Arizona and benefits the St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance.
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.
Some cooks like to change up the Thanksgiving meal — a sous vide turkey here, a sweet potato souffle there. But on a holiday dedicated to tradition, innovation can spark revolt.
Nearly any time of day, if you’re driving around Ahwatukee, you’ll easily come across at least a handful of people on the roads running — this is one reason why I love living in this community.
Every Thanksgiving presents the same challenge — how to juggle the turkey and the stuffing and the pie and all those sides in just one oven.
In my monthly book club group we open the discussion with just a word and a number — how much we enjoyed the book on a scale of 1-10 and one word that best describes it for us.

When it was time for Ahwatukee Foothills resident Michelle Milich to get a new dog she figured an American Bulldog, known for no major health problems and low grooming, would be a good choice. She had a family member looking to get rid of an American Bulldog and the timing seemed like fate, but looking back Milich had no idea what fate had in store.
A recent opinion was published in the AFN indicating that we at AZ PASS (Arizona People Acting for a Safer Society), a local grass-roots organization dedicated to reducing gun violence, have only “smoke and mirrors” behind our views.
There’s an eerie truth to a song on Sting’s new album, “The Last Ship.”
A recent opinion regarding violence by John Chiazza (“Why does society ignore our grave gun disease,” AFN, Sept. 25) is not supported by data. Stricter gun laws will not reduce gun violence when many of the recent mass shootings are caused by individuals with mental illness and/or a broken family. He mentions nothing about addressing the mental health issues that are ever increasing in today’s society. Stricter gun laws don’t solve the root cause. Chicago, New York City, and California have the most stringent gun laws in the nation and just happen to also have the highest gun violence in the nation. People in Mexico are not permitted to own guns. How does that help prevent the gun violence by the drug cartels?

If you liked last summer’s block buster, “Gone Girl,” by Gillian Flynn, you might like “The Silent Wife,” by A.S.A. Harrison, a debut paperback novel published in June but quickly climbed the best-seller charts. Called one of the summer’s sleeper hits, one reviewer says, “It ensnares the reader on page one and doesn’t let go.” Even if you didn’t read “Gone Girl,” but like psychological suspense based on an unusual relationship, this might be the page-turner you are looking for.
Chicago-based fast-casual restaurant Portillo’s will open 10 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 10, at Tempe Marketplace. It will be open 10 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays, and 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays on the northeast corner of Rio Salado Parkway and McClintock Drive.
In the 2012 presidential campaign, President Obama claimed Detroit as evidence of his successful policies: “We refused to let Detroit go bankrupt. We bet on American workers and American ingenuity and, three years later, that is paying off in a big way.”
Emily Oster isn’t a baby doctor. She’s an economist and a mom who wanted to know more about all those rules handed down to women after the pregnancy stick goes pink.
The AFN has now published two rebuttals to a guest comment by AZ PASS Chair Ellen Davis following the Zimmerman verdict in Florida. Ms. Davis asked us if we wanted a society in which aggressive gun-toting people get to shoot the rest of us without a fear of legal consequence?
The decision that voters in Phoenix City Council District 6 make on Tuesday, Aug. 27 will determine whether we remain a great city for the benefit of future generations or embark on the path of decline already laid out by cities like Detroit.
