The voters of Congressional District 9 are faced with a couple of choices. Do we keep Democrat Congresswoman Kyrsten Sinema to represent us or do we elect someone else?
What if Louise of “Thelma & Louise” survived driving into the Grand Canyon and had a bratty granddaughter played by Melissa McCarthy somewhere down the line? You’d probably get something along the lines of “Tammy.” In the film, Susan Sarandon finds herself going along for another offbeat road trip full of crazy shenanigans, none of which take an especially dark turn like in “Thelma & Louise.” Sarandon is only the co-pilot on this particular road trip, however, playing second banana to McCarthy as the title character.
Summer is here in all its brutality. Reptiles sun themselves and mammals seek shade. Life takes considerable effort now, as it does during an East Coast winter. Nighttime gives no respite.

On Wednesday, in the Bass Pro Shops at the Mesa Riverview Shopping Center, the Phillips family gathered with distant relatives in a meeting room upstairs.

Our elected officials in Washington, D.C., talk a good game when it comes to supporting the needs of small-business owners like my husband and I. We run Blockwise Engineering, a manufacturing equipment business in Tempe. Like all good small-business owners, we do our civic duty and pay our fair share of taxes to help ensure that our communities have good schools, well-kept roads and other services we sometimes take for granted.
LOS ANGELES — Sebastian Junger wants 84 minutes of moviegoers' time, especially civilian moviegoers.

WASHINGTON - More Americans may wind up helping Mom as she gets older, but a new poll shows the most stressful kind of caregiving is for a frail spouse.
In this Aug. 30, 2013 photo, Pauline King cares for her husband Jerry King at their home in Anna, Ill. Jerry was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 1978. He can no longer go to the bathroom, bathe or dress himself without assistance from Pauline. You promise in sickness and in health, but a new poll shows becoming a caregiver to a frail spouse causes more stress than having to care for Mom, Dad or even the in-laws. Americans count on their families to care for them as they get older, with good reason: Half of people 40 and over already have been caregivers to relatives or friends, the poll found.

When Randall Presley began to develop Ahwatukee south of Warner Road, his engineers confronted a network of washes that ran into an unnamed stream. City of Phoenix Floodplain Management records designate that unnamed stream a “thalweg” — the lowest point in a Valley, prone to flooding.
“The Other Woman” is a comedy that really shouldn’t work at all seeing how there isn’t a funny scripted line in the entire picture. There are two things that come close to salvaging the film, though: Cameron Diaz and Leslie Mann. Both actresses, who have been doing respectable comedic work for almost two decades each, are charged with the thankless task of making unfunny material funny. The two are so good in their roles that they almost make “The Other Woman” worthwhile. Unfortunately, not even the most gifted comedians can make the flattest of scripts work.
