Gov. Jan Brewer is weighing whether the troubled Child Protective Services needs to be split into a separate agency headed by someone who reports directly to her.
Calling the Arizona legislation constitutionally flawed, proponents of abortion rights on Monday urged the U.S. Supreme Court to block the state from enforcing a ban on the procedure at 20 weeks.
The holidays are here. If you have the financial resources to provide a comfortable life for your family, you have reason to be thankful. And if you can afford to share some of your “bounty” with charitable organizations, you may want to be as generous as possible — because your gifts may allow you to both give and receive.
Recently I saw a story about 10 tons of marijuana being seized at the Arizona border, and I couldn’t help but think, “Why?” Why are our brave police officers and border patrol agents wasting their time on seizing marijuana when there are millions of dollars of dangerous hard drugs and thousands of illegal immigrants slipping through the border?
A true story made headlines Nov. 4. A trove of approximately 1,500 works of art confiscated by the Nazis in World War II were seized in a Munich apartment. The value was estimated to be $1.3 billion by artists such as Picasso, Matisse and Chagall. The news goes on to say that determining the rightful owners of the works decades after they were either sold under duress or seized could take years.
A judge has dismissed a murder case and ordered the release of the defendant — an Ahwatukee man convicted in the 2004 death of his 5-year-old son — after finding misconduct by prosecutors.
Thanksgiving is almost here. If you have the financial resources to provide a comfortable life for your family, you have reason to be thankful. And if you can afford to share some of your “bounty” with charitable organizations, you may want to be as generous as possible — because your gifts may allow you to both give and receive.
Each of us at some point in our life will be faced with a life limiting illness, either personally or facing the death of a loved one. There is an incredible resource in this community that provides comfort, dignity and respect to all those coping with a serious or life-limiting illness. It’s Hospice of the Southwest.
It is no longer a suit in a courtroom or a precursory thought in the back of a parent’s mind.
Pearl Jam has been quiet since wrapping up its "Backspacer" tour in 2010. But the grunge band, which rose through the Seattle scene and turned into a juggernaut courtesy of its pure arena-rock ambitions, began touring Oct. 11 in support of its latest album, "Lightning Bolt."
Rarely has a story about an angelic schoolgirl been narrated by Death. But such is the case in the dark, yet wondrous Nazi Germany-set "The Book Thief." ''Here's a small fact: You are going to die," we're told via voiceover by the Grim Reaper as we meet our young heroine, Liesel Meminger, played exquisitely by 13-year-old French-Canadian newcomer Sophie Nelisse.
Cases of whooping cough are on the rise across the country and NASCAR star Jeff Gordon is racing to end it.
The best parts of "Dallas Buyers Club" are of Matthew McConaughey, as HIV-positive Texas man Ron Woodroof, bucking like a bull in a Dallas hospital he refuses to let hold him.
With teenagers driving Ford Mustangs and screeching tires being heard every few seconds, one might think there was trouble in the making. But it was the complete opposite. Teenagers were just trying to learn how to be safer drivers.
Even my own mother scoffed at the idea of her obviously European-looking daughter confessing she celebrated Día De Los Muertos.
I am not suggesting for a moment that my extended family is weirder than any one else’s. I am also not suggesting that we are any less weird. Chances are pretty good that we fit under that 68.4 percent normal distribution bulge in the bell curve of weirdness. When it comes to religion, we are all over the place.
Budget battles never seem to end in Washington, DC. And, like a real battle, there are casualties. Among them are people with diseases and disabilities hoping for new medical breakthroughs.
In America we hear a lot about stress. The hardships that America has gone under this century have shown an ever increasing amount of stress.
Arizona restaurant patios are teeming with patrons, the stores are filled with holiday decorations, and daytime temperatures have dipped into the 80s. Fall has arrived in Arizona, and that means it’s also the beginning of flu season.
It's not unusual for your average 77-year-old man to lose some hearing in one ear.
As creaky as an arthritic hip, "Last Vegas" does for four leading stars of the '70s and '80s what movies like "Tough Guys" and "Grumpy Old Men" did for survivors of Hollywood's storied Golden Age: It lets them show they can still throw a punch, bust a move, and get it on, and that they're not quite ready for the Motion Picture Home just yet. Beyond that, this genteel "Hangover" for the AARP crowd has little to recommend it, though a smattering of funny gags and the nostalgia value of the cast keeps the whole thing more watchable than it has any right to be.
An anti-bullying allegory writ on the largest possible scale, "Ender's Game" frames an interstellar battle between mankind and pushy ant-like aliens, called Formics, in which Earth's fate hinges on a tiny group of military cadets, most of whom haven't even hit puberty yet. At face value, the film presents an electrifying star-wars scenario — that rare case where an epic space battle transpires entirely within the span of two hours — while at the same time managing to deliver a higher pedagogical message about tolerance, empathy and coping under pressure. Against considerable odds, this risky-sounding Orson Scott Card adaptation actually works, as director Gavin Hood pulls off the sort of teen-targeted franchise starter Summit was hoping for.
Is it possible to convey, through the experience of just one man, the sweep and enormity of the horror that was American slavery?
A Maricopa County Superior Court spokeswoman said Anthony Rinaldi entered his plea of guilty Tuesday in the 2011 death of 28-year-old Amanda Blaies-Rinaldi.
Tom Patterson’s privileged class of the elite snubs the middle class (“What’s really good for the middle class is good for America, AFN, Oct. 13). He misses the mark in his biased Tea Party fashion. Middle class jobs are sent overseas where inadequate pay and work for peanuts abound. Locked doors caused workers to be burned to death because of being locked in their sweat shops. Now the super wealthy are after workers’ pensions and safety nets for their families. No affordable health care, no overtime, shorter hours, lower pay, no vacations, work on holidays without extra pay, etc.
