Hawkeye is a large mixed breed guy that came to Friends for Life Animal Rescue from the Yuma Humane Society. His family turned him in ... they said they had no time for him. He is about 2 years old. He is a very nice boy ... silly as well. Volunteers at the shelter have been working with teaching him commands such as lay down. It has been observed that he is food possessive and because of this he should be an only animal in his new home. Hawkeye is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and microchipped. He currently lives at Friends for Life’s adoption center, 143 W. Vaughn Ave., in downtown Gilbert. His adoption fee is $125.

Gather around, everyone. It’s time to go over another checklist movie. So exactly how many action clichés does “The November Man” cram into 98 minutes? The ex-CIA agent who comes out of retirement to take on a personal mission, check. A beautiful love interest in over her head, check. A former pupil turned rival, check. Several chases both in cars and on foot, double check. Walking away from an explosion without looking back, check. Gratuitous female nudity, none of which is provided by any of the leading actresses, check. Tragic back stories, check. An assassin who isn’t very good at killing our main characters, check. Interrogation scenes, check. A fat, slimy scoundrel who hangs out in a strip club, check. Exotic backdrops, check. Russian bad guys, check. A daughter who only exists to get kidnapped at the last minute, check. Expendable characters that disappear with no explanation, check. A plot that doesn’t make a ton of sense, check.
