As progress on Gilbert’s first four-year educational institution continues, one thing university officials are trying to do is blend the town’s aesthetic with a hint of their hometown.
At the dawn of civilization, when communities started to see their members specialize (think of farmers, tailors, herdsmen, blacksmiths, builder, merchants), that’s when the first businesses were born. Until we entered the 20th century, there were only two modes of marketing: word of mouth and the printed word. Then, with a rush of innovation came the new waves of marketing with each one farther reaching and more targeted: radio, television, Internet, and only recently mobile. Not only has the way we market businesses to the community changed, the entire mentality of business has transformed to reward businesses that give back to the community and society as a whole. By placing stress on increasing community value, not shareholder value, these companies transcend the common mission of corporate America and become a crusader for the communities they touch. That’s why I’d like to bring GEOPERKS by iPayMobile to our community’s attention and the different ways this mobile marketing company is bringing opportunities to local businesses and nonprofit organizations alike. As Americans we love our baseball and since we’re in baseball season, our local schools and club leagues are starting up, let’s delve into the services GEOPERKS by iPayMobile is bringing to our Ahwatukee baseball community.
State lawmakers voted Wednesday to let ranchers shoot the Mexican gray wolves being reintroduced to the Southwest despite their listing under federal law as endangered.
Family road trips are an important piece of our heritage, so it’s likely that most of us have a special road trip tucked away as a favorite childhood memory. Mine was a summer jaunt to visit family in Lake Stevens, Wash. Endless “license plate game” and “cyclops” hours later, and we arrived at our first main stop — Redwood National Park. As I unfolded myself out of our station wagon, I’ll never forget my jaw-dropping awe as I peered to look up at these giant trees kissing the sky. Although we camped only a night among the canopies of these behemoths, it’s that part of the two-week trip that was forever etched in my memory. As an adult and parent, state and national parks remain a favorite; there’s something about the unspoiled beauty and beckoning adventure that makes everyone feel like a kid.

If you've seen the poster for "Bad Words," starring and directed by Jason Bateman, you'll see a sneer on Bateman's face. It's truly nasty. More than most movie posters, this image sets a perfect tone for the film, much of which really IS that nasty.
