In Joseph Conrad’s “Heart of Darkness,” the narrator speaks of his instability caused by the fever dream of the jungle this way: “(It) was the playful paw-strokes of the wilderness, the preliminary trifling before the more serious onslaught which came in due course.”
If President Obama negotiates a massive new trade bill but doesn’t tell the general public about it, can it still go into effect? Can it still deplete our jobs and prosperity, the way past trade agreements like NAFTA and the recent Korean trade agreement have? Can it still lead to a destructive trade deficit?
Ah, summertime in Arizona. A time for cooling off in the backyard swimming pool, barbecuing with family and neighbors and planning our seasonal escapes to cooler climates. It’s also the time when living in an energy-efficient home can mean the difference between receiving a monthly electricity bill that’s manageable and one that causes your blood to boil.
The shocking death of actor and comedian Robin Williams is bringing needed attention to the subject of depression, suicide and other mental health issues.
Most people believe that retirement begins around the age of 60, give or take a few years. It is a time when we are no longer at work, and we are free to spend our time doing whatever we want. That is likely true for many retirees, but it is also partly true for everyone with a job … at least for some of the time.

Modern features, customizable options and reduced maintenance are among the many reasons most Americans — twice as many to be exact — would prefer purchasing a new home rather than an existing home, according to the latest online survey from Trulia, a leading online residential real estate site. Of the more than 2,000 survey respondents interviewed last spring, 41 percent said they’d prefer buying a new home, whereas only 21 percent would choose an existing home. The remaining 38 percent of respondents had no preference.
The provision of a 2010 voter-approved measure saying Arizonans don't have to buy health insurance is unenforceable because it conflicts with the federal Affordable Care Act, a federal appeals court ruled Thursday.

It’s that time of year again when the kids are going back to school. Some students, who are on the year-round schedule, have already started. Others are going to start on Monday. From pre-school to college, students, parents and teachers are getting ready. But what about the rest of us?
I’ve been an Ahwatukee resident since 1999 and I would love to keep the Lakes golf course, but the truth is I haven’t played golf or supported the local courses in over four years. Not because of any reason other than I don’t golf as much as I used to. People do not spend time playing golf like they used to. I played three-four times a week back in the ’90s, but now play less than one time every four years. How many of you actually play golf and supported the Lakes or Country Club?

District 18 Republican state senate candidates Jeff Dial and Tom Morrissey discussed Common Core standards, Medicaid, job growth and legislative pay increase during a forum hosted by the East Valley Tribune on July 11.
I just read Bill Richardson’s bio on officer Stewart Ferrin. No question who I’d want around to help me in the event of an emergency. “Professor” Ore’s behavior has brought shame onto herself and the institution for which she works — on a national level, no less. Where’s the investigation of that? Where is the political correctness in vilifying a young man who has devoted his life to helping the society in which he lives?
As the 2014-15 school year is about to start, we are excited about a number of new programs and projects we are offering at the East Valley Institute of Technology.
