Take a peek from a few miles away and it appears Chandler senior Ky Westbrook had a sensational track season. She took home four state titles in the 100, 100 hurdles, 200 and shot put, and the Wolves took home their ninth consecutive state title due in large part to her efforts.
I’ve never given birth, but I was there in the room when both my kids were born, and saw what my wife went through those first few months after our infant son was home.

It’s hard to imagine anyone not liking Disney. Sure, many of us go through a phase where we think we’re too old and sophisticated for Mickey Mouse. This typically leads to our pretentious cynic phase in which our college professors open our eyes to all the stereotypes and “hurtful ethics” Disney has endorsed over the years. Films like “Escape from Tomorrow” haven’t exactly helped the company’s image either. At the end of the day, though, nobody can outrun the magic, good will, and sheer lovability attached to Disney. There isn’t a cold-hearted soul that can’t be completely won over by the mouse house … except maybe P.L. Travers, the author of “Mary Poppins.”

The cooler fall temperatures are here at last. Summer vacation time is lingering in the corners of our minds. Our children and grandchildren are back in school. The winter visitors are beginning to arrive. The traffic volume is heavier. The stores are gearing up for the upcoming fall festivals and winter holidays.

There’s so much busy packed into our days that we’re in danger of forgetting that the origin of holiday is holy day. If you’re days are anything like mine, I’m sure you’ve noticed that the business of busy too frequently equates to major stress and anxiety. When I prayed about my own busyness, I found my mind dwelling on two Bible stories.

Of all the movie villains we've met lately, few are stranger than Delacourt, Jodie Foster's evil, white-blonde, power-suited and power-hungry defense official in "Elysium," the much-awaited but ultimately somewhat disappointing new film from director Neill Blomkamp.
I have told this story at least once in the past 13 years of writing this column, but it bears repeating. In 1972, I bought my first brand new car; a Mazda RX-3. It was the debut year for Mazda and I had to have one. The list price was $500 less than a brand new Corvette. Three years later when the warranty had expired, a guy gave me $300 for my Mazda and, with the aid of a strong chain, towed it home. I was never so happy to see a car go away!
