You won’t find many Dr. Seuss books in the hands of high school students. But the books’ messages can inspire for a lifetime, like this one: “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”
I am a 35-year resident of Ahwatukee and I read with interest Ed Corona’s commentary on the golf course situation (“Save The Lakes needs new plan,” AFN, July 30). The overall gist was that since there seems to be no other solution on the horizon, we had best accept the Pulte program and move on lest the situation gets only worse. Win one for Mr. Gee.
The Arizona Department of Education released its 2013-14 letter grades for schools across the state on Monday, and the Kyrene and Tempe Union High school districts and Horizon Community Learning Center all received an overall “A” grade.
I read with interest Edward Corona’s well written guest commentary “Save The Lakes needs new plan” (AFN, July 30). It was so well written it might have come directly from Pulte’s PR department. Unfortunately, he’s wrong on every material point.
I’ve been an Ahwatukee resident since 1999 and I would love to keep the Lakes golf course, but the truth is I haven’t played golf or supported the local courses in over four years. Not because of any reason other than I don’t golf as much as I used to. People do not spend time playing golf like they used to. I played three-four times a week back in the ’90s, but now play less than one time every four years. How many of you actually play golf and supported the Lakes or Country Club?
