As you survey the political landscape, what do you see? Support for capitalism and liberty or an intransigent proclivity for control and political power? Intellectual pragmatism or crony capitalism? The truth of history or the lies of an imaginary future? The support of economic growth or the oppressive regulations of socialism?

With growing confusion and much deliberation about the overpowering messages regarding “racism” in recent publications of the AFN, I am compelled to summarize:
“The Husband’s Secret,” by Liane Moriarty has been billed as a great beach read or one you want to curl up with for the whole day beside a cozy fireplace. Since we have no beach in Phoenix, it’s too early for a cozy fire, and even pool-side season is over, what’s one to do?

In “Prisoners,” director Denis Villeneuve is allowed the privilege few lesser known filmmakers have these days: The chance to not only make a multimillion-dollar American movie with A-list actors, but to also see his vision to the end. It would have been easy for the studio to step in and dumb this material down to another Hollywood thriller. Watching the film, you feel nothing short of grateful that the project was helmed by Villeneuve, whose “Incendies” received an Oscar nomination for Best Foreign Film. Give him an intelligent script by Aaron Guzikowski in addition to a faultless cast, and you’ve got a recipe for one of the most distinctive crime dramas since “Mystic River.”

Shipley has worked with DiCiccio’s office for more than a year, and has been an instrumental part of DiCiccio’s fight to end pension spiking and rein in out-of-control retirement costs. DiCiccio and his staff report that Shipley’s work ethic and commitment to conservative principles will not only benefit Councilman DiCiccio but also District 6 and the City of Phoenix.
Shame on the mayor and all of the City Council for allowing David Cavazos to “spike” his city pension. This is equivalent to allowing the fox to guard the chicken house — the process needs a total top to bottom review. I would prescribe a full bottle of laxatives to flush the system. Let’s get real and fix this issue now — no more kicking the issue down the road by giving it to “staff” to report back in the future. No wonder we have budget problems as we have a core breakdown in accountability, ethics and leadership.
