Every so often some researcher whips out his calculator and estimates how much it takes to raise a child today.

When you’re a parent of a small child, life can be filled with little moments of panic.

Even though Arizona is generally considered a “red” state, I’d like to thank all those who voted for Barack Obama, especially those who re-elected him. I voted for the other guy, both times. And thanks for putting all of those Democrat senators and representatives into Congress.
Halloween, the holiday built around the twin pleasures of playing dress-up and eating too much candy, is obviously a hit with children.
We all know that the Star Trek mission is “to explore strange new worlds” and “seek out new life and new civilizations,” so it’s only logical that the Starship Enterprise would eventually end up at the Arizona State Fair. Nestled amongst the “Bacon A-Fair” food stands and “Tilt-A-Whirl” thrill rides, “Star Trek: The Exhibition” has landed.

Consider custom furniture pieces next time you need to fill a special place in your home, instead of settling for limited choices or production furniture. Our lifestyles and furniture needs are ever changing as we add, subtract and replace those pieces that started with us when we had our first place. As the children come along we need to expand storage places for the clothes, collections, sports equipment, trophies, games, etc. into functional furniture pieces that can be customized to fit their needs. And when the children move out furniture again changes as we consolidate and compress to suit individual preferences.
In a household full of kids there’s a constant shuffle of clothes, strollers, car seats, toys and other items that were perfect last month and are useless now.

During Arizona’s hot summer months hiking is still possible, but experts agree that early morning is the time to be on the trails. “At night the sun has baked on the asphalt all day long and as the sun goes down the asphalt releases that heat,” said Elizabeth Smith, park ranger at South Mountain Park. “Even though the sun is down and you may not have direct sun on you, it’s still hot out. In the morning it’s 80 degrees. I would suggest looking at what the temperature is throughout the day before you make your plans.”
REALITY TIME is fast approaching on the conclusion of the public comment period on the proposed Loop 202 for the South Mountain Freeway, as we have just until July 24 to submit our opinions.

I am one of those whose mother invoked starving children in India or China as a way to get me to eat nasty vegetables like eggplant and okra and to otherwise leave nothing on the plate. These days, I like vegetables, I clearly do not often leave anything on the plate, and my mother need not look past our own shores to see starving children.
I am writing to express my sincere gratitude to the women of Mesa Arizona Hermosa Vista Stake of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Besides pulse, respiratory rate, and blood pressure, a patient’s temperature is also considered a “vital sign.” The thing that makes a person’s temperature vital is that the body’s homeostasis, or ability to maintain all functions optimally, depends upon a certain range of heat. Most everyone can recite that the average body core temperature is 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit with a healthy range being anywhere from 97 to 99 degrees. Temperatures that vary below or above this average create an internal atmosphere that is not conducive to the various systems’ functioning. The term “fever” generally refers to anything over 99 degrees. In order to maintain the healthful range, the body has a regulating system that kicks in much like any thermostat. If the core temperature starts to rise, we begin a cooling mechanism through sweating. If the core temperature starts to decrease, shivering will initiate warming through muscle contractions.
