Perhaps no vocal group in America – other than the Beach Boys – have been as celebrated as The Manhattan Transfer.

Jameson is a very handsome male Shepherd mix, about a year old. He was found as a stray. Jameson was never claimed so now he’s available for adoption. He is a big boy with lots of energy. He’s still very “puppy-ish” so whomever shares their home with Jameson should know sitting all day watching TV just won’t satisfy him. He is a wonderful guy that loves people, however, he should be an only dog. During the time he’s been at the shelter he’s been “barky” when he sees or meets other dogs, and he does not want to share food or toys with his canine friends. He is living at the Friends for Life adoption center in downtown Gilbert, 143 W. Vaughn Ave. He is current on vaccinations, microchipped, and neutered.

I have always enjoyed this time of year. Even as a child growing up in Chicago, fall afternoons meant playing baseball with a sweatshirt on or running through piles of fallen leaves, some of which were raked quite neatly and I mischievously found joy in rummaging through those piles as well.
Are you a member of the “Sandwich Generation?” This designation — which applies to people caring for their aging parents while supporting their own children — may be applicable to you if you’re either a younger baby boomer, born in the late 1950s or early 1960s, or an older member of “Generation X,” born in the mid-1960s. But any way you slice it, being in the “Sandwich” group is probably going to present you with some challenges, particularly of the financial kind — so you’ll need to make the right moves.

Arizona’s story of growth and prosperity came through access to a supply of low-cost energy and water that is now at risk. Before World War II, Arizona was a desert outpost — a stopover on the way to California. As the post-war economy blossomed, Arizona remained the rugged West. But a few visionaries who happened to call Arizona home knew this state could be so much more. But to make that vision a reality, they needed one thing: Water.
This lovely girl (also known as “Angel”) is a yellow Lab mix, about 6 months old. Currently, she weighs in at 25 pounds full of love, but she’ll continue to grow into a large-sized dog.
Those who abhor public prayer are at it again. They are offended by reference to deity among other things. There have always been those who do not recognize the unseen (“God cannot be proven”), never mind that they live in an age of invisible power, which keeps cell phones and computers running.

Have a question for Selena Gomez? She says you'll find the answer in her new album.
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.
Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream” was perfect pop pleasantry, full of back-to-back hits that were oh-so-fun and addictive, fused with humor, emotion and a hint of edge. How could you resist?
