The Obama administration is implementing tighter security measures at foreign airports that have direct flights to the U.S. out of concern that al-Qaida is trying to develop a new and improved bomb that could go undetected through airport security.
There sure are many different thoughts and ideas about The Lakes Golf Course. Thought I’d send in another idea.
Shame on SCOTUS. Its recent 5-4 ruling to allow the owners of Hobby Lobby and other closely held, for-profit enterprises to deny certain types of reproductive health care to its women employees moves society backwards.

In the beginning there was dirt — and roads that were mere afterthoughts of other East Valley cities. For the most part, they didn’t lead to much of anywhere, as they dustily meandered west toward South Mountain.
The Mountain Pointe Pride boys basketball team has about four months until the regular season gets underway. For head coach Hosea Graham, that time is all about one thing: work.

You know George Washington and John Hancock as Founding Fathers. But what about George Washington, successful whiskey distiller? Or John Hancock, fortified wine importer?
If you build it they might not come. In its infancy, Ahwatukee was perceived to be isolated and far removed from civilization. Signs like this helped to pique freeway travelers’ curiosity about the new development rising in the desert near South Mountain.
I nearly fell out of my chair laughing this morning when I read the headlines that Pulte was offering a $1 million incentive for the other golf course. Pulte doesn‘t have a clue. It’s not just about the golf! It’s about the open space. That’s what we want to preserve in Ahwatukee. We don’t have enough, and if we build 200-300 homes near Warner and 44th Street, that is not creating more open space!
Unfortunately, there has been a lot of misinformation generated by the Save the Lakes group related to the closed Ahwatukee Lakes golf course. It is time to set the record straight on what currently appears to be the sole solution on a sustainable use for the second life of the former Lakes golf course:
"Green” interiors are not a new style, a preferred color choice or even a new trend. “Green” interiors means using energy-efficient, non- or low-polluting products, built with sustainable resources and can be maintained without the use of toxic cleaning products, to create interiors that are both for people and good for the environment. Why should it make a difference in our interiors and our lives? Because most people want their home to be a place where they feel comfortable, secure and at ease knowing they are living in a safe and healthy environment that is also beautiful.
The future of pickleball may be coming from Pecos Community Center’s summer camp.
If you’re a fan of traditional décor, you probably appreciate the elegant lines and rich history of neoclassical style.
Regarding the closure and Pulte Homes’ proposed development of The Lakes Golf Course, there is only one logical defense: Vote NO on any petition presented by Pulte Homes. If those of us living in the Ahwatukee Board of Management jurisdiction do not want an influx of new homes and the inevitable traffic, congestion, loss of open space and urban heat island effect that will ensue, we must not allow the protective CC&Rs to be changed, which is what Pulte needs to proceed. The company must have positive signatures from over half of the 5,100 homeowners in the ABM jurisdiction allowing these sensible Codes, Covenants and Restrictions to be changed.
Dear Ms. Petroulakis,
Doug Ducey told Republicans in Ahwatukee Tuesday night that he wants them to vote for him because they believe in his vision of a growing economy and a shrinking government.
