The group behind a vetoed religious freedom law intends to study Monday's Supreme Court ruling as a chance to revamp it and try again next year.
We’ve all suffered through them, those limp, soggy excuses for pasta salad that amount to little more than elbow macaroni doused with bottled vinaigrette and tossed with a bag of frozen peas.
We ask homeowners to be on the alert for door bags that contain a goldenrod flier, a petition and self-addressed envelope. To stop the changing or amending of the declaration which states that the property shall be used for no purpose other than a golf course.
If you haven't yet tried halloumi — often also called Greek grilling cheese — let this recipe for a romaine salad be your excuse.
Now that school is out for the summer it is time to consider ways to encourage kids to be active. We know that school activities such as recess, physical education, classroom exercise breaks, and before- and after-school physical activities all contribute significantly to meeting national guidelines for physical activity (60 minutes per day recommended). Research also indicates that many kids are sedentary during the summer months, getting less moderate to vigorous activity than during the school year. So when school is out it is important for kids to find other opportunities for exercise.
The 2015 budget signed into law by Gov. Jan Brewer last month contains one important provision some school reformers believe represents a true gamer in the struggle to improve the educational outcomes for all students.
Gov. Jan Brewer signed groundbreaking legislation Thursday to create and fund a new Department of Child Safety, at least in part to solve problems that she may have helped create.
Long before Tony LaRussa became part of the Diamondbacks' organization I had funny interaction with him during spring training.
PICACHO PEAK STATE PARK — "Excuse me, coming through, sorry, thank you!" I kept repeating loudly and urgently as I hiked up Picacho Peak, which rises like a Western saddle from the endless desert just off I-10 between Phoenix and Tucson.
Comedies centered on rivalries can be really hit and miss. When done right, they can produce some wonderful characters and comedic situations. When done wrong, we get the lamest, broadest drivel imaginable that would even make a midseason replacement sitcom cringe. The fact that all of these movies inevitably end with a happy resolution between the two feuding parties doesn’t help. “Neighbors” is thankfully one of the better rivalry comedies of recent memory thanks to the well-suited leads, some solid one-liners, and the capable direction of Nicholas Stoller.
It’s a nice house, on a cul-de-sac, in a quiet Chandler neighborhood. And Julie Wilson wanted to rent it after finding it on the rental and sales website, Trulia.com.
Owning a dog is a lot like playing golf. By this I mean there are rules and appropriate behaviors/etiquette that correspond to dog ownership. Dogs are natural followers and want to please. With the right leadership and guidance, you can establish an amazing bond with your dog. To find this connection, it’s necessary to establish a routine to let your dog know the rules.
While Arizona recovers from an economic crisis rooted in predatory lending practices, a bill before the Legislature proposes another round of risky loans not too far removed from the horrific payday-lending loans now mostly a good-riddance memory.
Candy making can confound even the most careful home cook. Luckily, Passover gives us an excuse to make a simple candy that is delicious and requires little fuss. And you don't need to celebrate Passover to appreciate it.
Each year, about 1,500 babies are born with spina bifida, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention website. Spina bifida occurs when the spinal cord does not form properly before birth and causes a malformation in the skull, which can result in paralysis.
Sometimes I’m embarrassed to be called a Christian. Don’t get me wrong — I am not ashamed of Jesus. It’s just that the behavior of some people who claim to follow Christ often looks so opposite of what He desires of us that I cringe at the association. There are so many bad attitudes, hateful words, and fingers being pointed. And there are those whose talk is good, but their walk does not match.
The tennis season is well under way and it has gone pretty much as preseason expectations indicated.
When I was pregnant with the oldest Son, Interrupted, my insurance covered only one ultrasound examination. Conducted relatively early in the pregnancy, the exam produced the standard 1994 fetal image of what I like to call “Still Life: Doughnut in a Blizzard.”
Are you feeling a little sluggish and out of sorts? Not sure how to have success this time around? Don’t fret, your not alone.
I “was” a die-hard Republican, now I’m pondering what type of party would best represent my views. I’m also agnostic. I will never be a Democrat, nor a religious Bible thumper. But what I witnessed this week just blew my mind. What is with these people that we elect to represent us? They represent themselves as being common and ordinary citizens when running for office, but once in office it all falls apart. SB 1062! Why, oh why, couldn’t our elected representatives see the problems with this bill? I’m now convinced that we have idiots on both sides of the aisle representing mainstream America.
Chris Apodaca’s grim childhood began to change for the better when he entered Sunshine Acres at age 10. He had been living on the streets with his sister, two brothers and drug addicted parents for as long as he could remember.
My favorite thing about fancy parties? They almost always include a shrimp cocktail appetizer — platters of giant, plump shrimp just waiting to be dunked into a piquant cocktail sauce.
State lawmakers want to force voters to reapprove, over and over again, perhaps dozens of measures they previously enacted.
As I write this, it’s Sunday night. The last time I got up from the couch it was daylight out, but I’m reasonably sure that I was navigating with yesterday’s daylight.
