Arizona history was celebrated Tuesday afternoon at Summit School of Ahwatukee where more than 30 fourth-graders presented what they learned about the state during the school’s own look at Arizona history: “Here Today, and Gone Tomorrow.”
Halloween doesn’t only bring out the ghosts and zombies — it’s also full of plastic wrappers, one-time costumes and wasted pumpkins, but some simple tips can help you make your holiday a little more sustainable.

That faint noise you hear is the sound of pint-sized spooks, banshees, and vampires gathering on your lawn. They will soon be knocking at the door plastic pumpkins outstretched. Spare yourself the tricks and go ahead and give up the treats - the unhealthy, sweet, nougat-filled goodies in your cupboard.
The weather is slowly getting cooler and more ghosts and pumpkins are starting to appear, but for several Ahwatukee Foothills families, the goblins and zombies have been on their minds for weeks already.

I was in the hardware store when I first heard the news, though I did not know what I was hearing. As the cashier tallied my purchase, I overheard a reporter on the store’s radio make the peculiar announcement that a plane had crashed into the World Trade Center.

I have been a business, real estate and employment litigation attorney in Arizona for over 27 years. Based on my extensive trial experience, I can tell you that it is almost always a poor idea to ignore a threat of litigation or demand for payment. I am not suggesting that you always need to consult with an attorney. In fact, if that matter in dispute is not important it will not set a precedent that may hurt you going forward or involves an insignificant amount of money, you may not need to consult with an attorney. Regardless of whether or not you speak with an attorney you should quickly thoroughly analyze the strengths and weaknesses of your position as well as the potential damages and counterclaims that may exist. My view is typically that you should always consider asserting a counterclaim since “the best defense is a good offense.”

The goal of this exchange was for the foreign students to learn about American culture, practice the English language, and immerse themselves in American society.
