Eight years ago, my daughter Jasmine asked if she could audition for the Ahwatukee Foothills “Nutcracker” performance. She was new to the world of ballet and dance, but I relented, and she was thrilled to get parts as a Baby Mouse and a Mini Bon Bon. And the next thing I knew, her Saturday soccer games now had conflicts with “The Nutcracker” practice — called “rehearsals,” I was quickly corrected. I kept hearing about how much fun Jasmine was having at these rehearsals, how many new friends she was making, and how she couldn’t wait for “Opening Night.” I didn’t pay too much attention. I just paid for the costumes, bought tickets for a performance, and occasionally picked her up after a rehearsal and raced her to her soccer game.

When you can’t lift yourself out of the pit despite all of your coping resources – faith, friends, family, chocolate ice cream. And wine, in the name of truth telling.

Zoey, a beautiful 4-month-old “tuxedo” kitten was abandoned inside a box left in front of a PetSmart. Even though she was dehydrated and exhausted from her experience, she is still very trusting of humans and extremely affectionate.

For some in our city, domestic violence is a daily problem. Councilmembers Nowakowski, Williams, and myself teamed together to make ending domestic violence a priority.

This is in response to Don Crook’s letter on Oct. 11, “Obama is destroying America.” Where does this guy get his information? Obviously he informs himself from the extreme right-wing media where these mindless morons believe everything they are told. HUD is not going to Africa to recruit Muslims to house in non-integrated neighborhoods, and more importantly President Obama is not a Muslim. Anyone who believes that nonsense and anything even close just shows their ignorance by spouting it like it was true when it is patently false. He is very lucky to live in a country where he can say such derogatory things about our government and our President and not suffer any consequences other than to look very foolish.
