For the past 30 years, I have been a literacy advocate. During the summer of 1983, I learned that my grandfather was illiterate.
“Keep Kyrene Strong.” You’ve seen the bright yellow signs on prominent corners in the Kyrene corridor, but what does that mean, exactly?

Veteran country star Alan Jackson ranks among the most tradition-based singers of his generation. Most of his influences are on the surface: honky-tonk, swing, blues and songs both romantic and social that draw on details from his personal life.
Many years ago I owned and operated a motorcycle repair shop that specialized in repairing and updating Triumph motorcycles. It was a fairly profitable endeavor, however, I leaned a real-life lesson while trying to fit after-market parts not purchased from Triumph; if it goes right on and does not require any modification, you probably have it on wrong or you bought the wrong part.
It’s been 75 years since Dorothy clicked her sparkling ruby heels together and wished to go home, and now you can see her dazzling red kicks and the zany world of Oz like never before.
Consider the following very typical scenario: You are one of the growing numbers of individuals who takes an aspirin every day because of its cardio protective properties on the advice of a health care provider. Then, one day you sprain your ankle and you consider taking a couple of over-the-counter ibuprofen two or three times a day for a few days for its anti-inflammatory effects. Seems harmless enough, but is it? Is it advisable to be taking aspirin and ibuprofen simultaneously?
The 1980s had New Kids on the Block; the '90s had the Backstreet Boys; and now boy bands are resurgent again with British group-of-the-moment One Direction, currently a chart-topping global pop phenom. While hardly a very incisive look at the band or its five individual singers — who are barely old enough to even have personal histories — Morgan Spurlock's documentary "One Direction: This Is Us" should score big with kids.
When people think of television journalism, Katie Couric is one of the first names that comes to mind. She’s been all over during her career, from co-anchoring NBC’s “Today” show to being the first solo female anchor of a national news broadcast on “CBS Evening News” with Katie Couric. She’s also a best-selling author and outspoken cancer advocate. Now, Couric hosts and executive produces her own syndicated daytime talk show, “Katie.”
Each fall, after crossing the hurdle of back-to-school fever, parents of high school juniors and seniors have the added burden of facing the confusing college application process. News stories remind parents of the spiraling tuition costs and increased unemployment among college graduates while colleges sell parents on the need for a degree in today’s changing American economy.

Picture day has a feel all to its own.
On the movie poster for “Planes’” and in a number of its advertisements is the tagline “From Above the World of Cars,” with the latter three words are carried over into the film’s title sequence. The goal, of course, is to link the film with Pixar’s popular “Cars” movies and equate that Pixar brand quality with its skyward brethren.
As a mental health therapist it has been my privilege to work with some veterans of the Vietnam, Gulf, Iraq, and Afghanistan wars. Of course, from the news media, TV, and Internet, we know of their sacrifices and their willingness to risk their lives for their country. Since 9/11 hundreds of thousands have served, and many have paid with their lives or with serious life altering injuries. Other wounds equally serious, such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), are less visible. About 20 percent of all those who have served in combat suffer from these disorders. PTSD and/or TBI can result in acute anxiety, depression, and/or cognitive impairment, which can impede work and the formation of healthy relationships that most of us take for granted.
It was a cloudy Monday morning as parents and students walked the grounds of Kyrene de la Esperanza Elementary School for the first day of school, and the start of a new fall term.
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!
