The appearance of your skin, including the skin on your feet, is a reflection of what’s going on internally with your health. Dry, cracked heels are an indication that your body is out of balance, not an indication that you need an expensive foot cream or a pedicure. Dry, cracked heels are a very common problem that can be embarrassing and unsightly. Fortunately, the following remedies will result in smooth, happy, healthy feet.
Even if Arizona lucks out and elects a lion hearted governor, it’ll still take herculean commitment to cut controlling ties to various federal programs. With summer primaries revving up, think of the gutsy governors of Utah, Ohio, Wisconsin, South Carolina and Texas. Their courage is remarkable.
In nearly six months People Who Could Fly has gone from a new band just starting out to being signed by a manager, recording its first EPA (a CD with a small amount of songs on it), and this weekend the local band will travel to California to perform at the Viper Room in Hollywood and audition for “America’s Got Talent.”
With the holiday season here, we encourage Maricopa County residents and businesses to pay attention to No Burn Day alerts and not burn wood in fireplaces, outdoor fire pits or other wood burning appliances on designated No Burn Days. Lives literally depend on your cooperation.
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.
With much at stake for Arizona, a group of very different interests recently gathered to best determine how to provide certainty for our energy future while balancing the environmental impacts on national parks in the Southwest — in particular the Grand Canyon.
For years, the Maricopa Association of Governments (MAG) and the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) have been spouting a story of how the South Mountain Freeway (SMF) will save our Valley from traffic congestion and air pollution. Now that experts have weighed in, it is clear that these claims are untrue and that this freeway proposal is a major fraud perpetrated by MAG and spread by ADOT in the form of its recent Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS).
The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) used its public comments on the Draft Environmental Impact Study (DEIS) of the South Mountain Loop 202 Freeway to ask the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) to conduct more tests and release more information to the community as a supplemental DEIS.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has honored Fulton Homes for its commitment to providing homebuyers with ENERGY STAR certified homes by presenting the Tempe-based homebuilder with the 2013 ENERGY STAR Leadership in Housing Award. The honor recognizes a builder that promotes energy efficient construction and helps to protect the environment through partnership with ENERGY STAR.
Diane Brown, executive director of the Arizona PIRG Education Fund (formerly New Jersey’s and Illinois’ PIRG executive director), fails to mention (“SRP needs to provide vision, advance energy efficiency,” AFN, March 29) that Salt River Project (SRP) meets and exceeds all FERC, NERC, and EPA (FED government agencies) regulations and SRP provides lower utility rates than “regulated utilities” in Arizona.
They are our neighbors. They live to the north of us in rural Arizona. Some are Native Americans, many still live in primitive conditions; other folks dwell in small communities, eking out livelihoods. Various are generational Arizonans, whose pioneer forefathers settled this state.
No business owner wants to hear that a government agency is coming to inspect their workplace — whether it’s the USDA, the EPA or the IRS. But if there was a government agency that could help save money, improve productivity and increase employee morale — free of charge — businesses just might be interested.
