Gov. Jan Brewer wants children to know that, yes, there is a Santa Claus.
Everyone had reservations when it was announced Peter Jackson would be splitting up “The Hobbit” into a trilogy. Do we really need three separate movies? Can’t this 300-page book be done in one movie? Isn’t this just a ploy to milk a franchise and make an extra couple billion dollars? When “An Unexpected Journey” finally came out last December, we all found that these initial concerns were pretty much spot-on.
The rubber duck squeaked out a win for a place in the National Toy Hall of Fame, joining the ancient game of chess in the 2013 class inducted Thursday.
In my monthly book club group we open the discussion with just a word and a number — how much we enjoyed the book on a scale of 1-10 and one word that best describes it for us.
Hi. My name is Elizabeth, and I’m a bookaholic.
Halloween has always been a time for people to go door-to-door decked out in their best costumes to receive the most amount of candy they can.
We all know that the Star Trek mission is “to explore strange new worlds” and “seek out new life and new civilizations,” so it’s only logical that the Starship Enterprise would eventually end up at the Arizona State Fair. Nestled amongst the “Bacon A-Fair” food stands and “Tilt-A-Whirl” thrill rides, “Star Trek: The Exhibition” has landed.
Alfonso Cuarón’s “Gravity” just might have the most horrifying premise in all of movies. There are several other strong contenders like “Buried,” in which Ryan Reynolds was trapped in a coffin underground, and “127 Hours,” where James Franco was stuck between a rock and a hard place. But honestly, what’s scarier than being stranded in space with limited air and no communication with Earth? Going to outer space is in itself a fairly scary thought. The notion of anything going wrong up there is the worst nightmare imaginable. As the tagline to “Alien” says, in space no one can hear you scream.
Students at Sonoran Science Academy-Ahwatukee had a special autograph to collect at the school’s Fall Book Fair recently, as fifth-grade teacher Daniel Trumpis signed copies of his recently published book, “Welcome to Harmony.”

Little brown Zoey is definitely all puppy, full of energy and so happy just to be alive. Curious about everyone and everything and just an awesome little girl. She even still has that wonderful puppy breath. She loves going on outings, car rides and chasing after toys, leaves or birds, etc. Zoey is a petite little girl with a big heart full of love and ready to open it up to anyone willing to give her a chance. She is a great little shopper as she demonstrated on a recent trip to Pet Club, checking out everything on the bottom shelf but never once taking anything in her mouth. She is a joy to be around and will bring a smile to your face and everyone she meets. Zoey loves other dogs so a home with another canine to romp with would be nice. Her forever family must be one that is ready to give her guidance and show her right from wrong. She is not completely house trained and needs some work on that, but she is a very smart little girl so she will master this in no time.
In 2004, I received my doctorate in American Studies. Upon graduation, I moved to Arizona for job opportunities and the warm climate. Six months after my move, I noticed a series of Rio Salado Community College advertisements regarding alternative paths to certification.
"Reclusive." Is that an adjective, or is it actually part of J.D. Salinger's name? The word has been used so often to describe the famous writer, one could be forgiven for thinking it appears on his birth certificate.
Tom Hanks didn’t know where the cameras were.
Three years after “Insidious” introduced moviegoers to the Lambert family and its troubling connection to the spirit world, the stars and filmmakers have reunited for another installment. “Insidious: Chapter 2” picks up where the first story ended, but the sequel has enough scares, laughs and a story of its own to stand alone.

Rebecca Hall is confidently stepping toward center stage.
A young adult fiction binge has broken out in "Mortal Instruments: City of Bones."
During the fall semester at Arizona State University, the facilities at the four campuses will be hosting the Project Humanities discussion and film screening with its theme being, “Humor… Seriously.”
For many authors, if asked where they found their passion for writing they would say it has been instilled into them at a young age.
The Ahwatukee-based SPAWN baseball club ended its season with a 73-26-4 record.
Diane Keaton. Mia Farrow. Dianne Wiest. Scarlett Johansson. Penelope Cruz.
You’ll want to find and sign one of those petitions against Arizona’s implementation of Obamacare. You’ll be glad you did. A fragile economic recovery here in the Valley is now in jeopardy with the recent passage of the law.
“Ordinary Grace,” by William Kent Krueger, is a touching coming-of-age novel set in the fictional town of New Bremen, “somewhere in the broad valley of the Minnesota River.” It is the summer of 1961, a time of innocence and hope for the country with a new young president. It’s the first year the Twins played in Minnesota, ice-cold root beers were enjoyed at Halderson’s drugstore soda fountain, and Hot Stuff comic books fill the magazine racks. For 13-year old Frank Drum it is a summer that becomes much more than a winning baseball season as his innocence is shattered due to a series of tragic events and deaths, including accidents, suicide and murder.
I, for one, am officially fed up with movies about zombie outbreaks, mutant outbreaks, virus outbreaks, and outbreaks in general. To be fair, the end of the world/global epidemic genre can still be done well. The best recent example actually wouldn’t be a movie, but “The Walking Dead: The Game,” which packed in more drama, thrills and heartfelt character development than the AMC TV show of the same name. Compelling characters and genuine terror is missing from “World War Z,” however. It’s surprisingly hollow, surprisingly bland, and, most unforgivable of all, surprisingly boring.
