A few weeks ago we got “The Lego Movie,” an animated feature that looked like a disaster waiting to happen. Since its release, however, the film has become a box office hit and received praise from virtually every human being on the planet, myself included. “Mr. Peabody & Sherman” is another family movie that seemed destined to flop at first glance. A modern day 3D extravaganza based on a 1960’s cartoon that was never even so great to begin with? I smell another “Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle.”
Three out of four Arizonans support the right of gays to at least form civil unions, if not to wed outright.
With the new year now in full swing, the Gilbert Chamber of Commerce continues to work to identify the programs and services that can best serve our business community. Like most businesses, we move steadily forward in pursuit of our goals.
Life expectancies are almost five years longer today than they were 30 years ago, a fact that increases the likelihood you will provide some form of support for aging parents — through home care, helping out with day-to-day chores and errands, or even covering living expenses. That role can make significant demands on your time, energy and financial resources.
With St. Patrick's Day nearly upon us, our minds often turn to corned beef and cabbage. This recipe was inspired by that tradition, but swaps out the corned beef in favor of smoked fish (also incredibly popular in Ireland) in a richly satisfying savory broth.
Eating well can be hard to do — but not because of a lack of options. Farmers markets make finding fresh-picked produce (and a variety of locally made specialty foods and products, like hummus and bath soaps) convenient in and around the East Valley.
Wherever I go in the country, or the world for that matter, if there is a music-related site I take the trouble to visit it. When I was in Rio de Janeiro, I made a beeline for Garota de Ipanema Café and Bar, where the great bossa nova song “The Girl From Ipanema” was written. Last year, while in Nashville, I visited the new Johnny Cash Museum and in New York strolled by the Brill Buildings, where folks like Carole King (“Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow”) and Ellie Greenwich (“Da Doo Ron Ron”) wrote the songs we remember from the 1960s.
Editor’s note: This is the third in a four-part series on exploring the benefits of life insurance. The final part will appear in the March 2 issue of the AFN.

It’s a fact, when it comes to buying or selling any house the kitchen gets the No. 1 scrutiny and can make or break the sale. It is the most used space in the house and has the most expensive components concentrated in one spot. The kitchen has been the most evolved room in the house and does not look nor function the same as yesterday’s kitchen.
In response to the letter from Clint Norris (“It’s an election year, pay attention,” AFN, Feb. 14), it is my hope that your readers pay close attention to what he wrote. We’ve elected people who choose not to address the tough issues, yet come back to us on their next campaign promising to “fix” things.
February is designated as “Black History Month” and celebrates a population of individuals that share a unique and important heritage. History has not always been kind to African Americans and, as with other minority groups, has left out important contributions by its members.

If you have ever watched “Alice in Wonderland” you probably remember the immortal words of the unpunctual White Rabbit, “I’m late, I’m late, for a very important date!” Whether you are looking forward to college or are already there, now is the time to make it a habit to be early to whatever task, meeting, appointment, party, and class you must attend. I can tell you, now being in the professional world and from my time in college, that if you have somewhere to be, you do not want to be running behind. It’s why I am now committed to the “five minute rule.”
NEW YORK — When people take an interest in cooking, broth sales apparently get a bump.
