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.
Logic, it turns out, isn’t always the way to go, at least not for Kenny Loggins.
It’s pretty clear the talent to win a state title was there for Mountain Pointe.
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.

A debt ceiling debate? Not exactly something you’d expect to hear on a high school campus.
Mr. Don Kennedy, your entire letter is not just inaccurate (“Operate within budget instead of asking for bond override,” AFN, Oct. 9), it’s very premise for opposing the request of the district doesn’t even exist. Tempe Union is not requesting a bond. There is no tax increase. There is no debt in this request. There are no additional dollars going in to the budget. I realize this makes this response brutally short and lacking great debate. None of what you said is true. So since we are supporting the very action you seem to call for, to endorse a CONTINUATION of the EXISTING spending authority WITHOUT a tax increase for a school district that has, by far, the LOWEST tax rates in Maricopa County, I would hope that the wonderful services provided by this district has now earned your vote.

The recent decision by three of my colleagues to prematurely shutdown the process of examining electric retail competition was one such time. The claim by the prevailing side was that the ACC was right to stop the discussions because of constitutional questions.
Arizona hospitals should net $108 million in the first six months of 2014 under a Medicaid expansion plan, even after paying their new assessments, according to a state study.
If you’re a couple of decades old you might remember the Pulliam Family, longtime owners of Arizona’s 123-year-old newspaper.
