During the holiday season, you no doubt have a lot going on in your life — work functions, gatherings with friends and neighbors, tracking down the elusive “perfect gift,” etc. But you may find it valuable to add one more event to your calendar: a family meeting to discuss those financial preparations that affect you and your loved ones.
From Pushkin’s classic poem comes Tchaikovsky’s theatrical magnum opus. Onegin is a man egotistical enough to turn his back on love and a gun on his best friend. Tchaikovsky’s intense score thrills with glorious melodies and rich orchestration, making this the must-see event of the season.
Almost two years ago, fate and a few loose cobblestones brought Rachael Jake and David Couch together. They talked all night over drinks and dueling pianos about rocks, Amazon robots and nerdy pick-up lines. Sparks flew, but time was against them — he left the next morning to head back home to Nashville. Completely smitten, somehow he knew he’d marry her someday, so he bought a plane ticket and flew back to date her. Without much of a strategy, they gave the long-distance dating model a shot (which proved to be a lesson in patience: mainly a lesson that Rachael does not have any). Long story short, it took them five dates, six states, eight plane tickets and 1,646 miles to realize that when you know, you know. David devised an ornate and romantic plan with Rachael’s little sister and best friend to fly out to Phoenix and propose to Rachael in Phoenix over the Christmas holiday. Having obviously misheard the popular phrase, “Good things come to those who wave…” David saw Rachael waving at the airport, ready to pick him up from his flight, and proposed less than 45 minutes later. Despite the deviation from his master plan, Rachael happily said yes at sunset on top of the South Mountain Preserve. The two will be married on Sept. 26 outside of Nashville at a local berry farm. Rachel is a 2008 graduate of Desert Vista High School in Ahwatukee and a 2012 graduation of Arizona State University.
The past few months have been a difficult season. Just when I think I’m about to catch a break from trials, something else happens. Many days I want to curl up in a corner and hide until I remember that nothing can happen unless God allows it.

After an accident in 2000 left her paralyzed from the waist down, former Ahwatukee business owner, Cristin Van Driel, was unable to act on her love of running. Her doctors at the time told her that she may never be able to run again due to the extent of her injuries.
Almost 30 years ago, Adrian Lyne directed “Fatal Attraction.” His film took a fairly basic thriller premise and distinguished it with Oscar-caliber performances, a well-structured screenplay, and legitimate terror. Since then, we’ve gotten numerous retreads like “Swinfan,” “Obsessed” and now, quite possibly the dumbest of all, “The Boy Next Door.” Even if “Fatal Attraction” never existed, though, “The Boy Next Door” would still be a downright embarrassing standalone movie. How embarrassing is it? So embarrassing that the audiences for “General Hospital” and “Days of Our Lives” would boo it off-screen.
