Every Sunday night I shake my head as I scroll through my Facebook news feed.
Looking for a little buddy to hang out with, go on walks, go to the Farmer’s Market, or just sit around and read the Ahwatukee Foothills News? Well, Chris is your guy! He is about the best little dog a person could want. He gets along well with other dogs, doesn’t mind little kids hanging all over him, and would possibly be OK with a feline sibling or two. Chris is a 5-year-old male Jack Russell Terrier mix who came to the Arizona Animal Welfare League because his owner fell on hard times and was unable to keep him any longer, not because of any other reason other than he no longer had a house to live in and wanted a better life for Chris than living on the streets. Chris is an absolute staff favorite and currently resides in the dog adoption manager’s office because she cannot bear to put him in a kennel because he’s just that perfect.
There was only one little blip on the start to C.J. Cron’s career.
As I follow the recent controversy over naming, identity, and cultural representation connected with the NFL’s Washington football team’s nickname and mascot, “Redskins,” I am surprised and confused that there is such vocal resistance to changing the name not just a few deem a racial slur that offends (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/tag/washington-redskins-name-controversy).

Maya is a 4 1/2-year-old American Pit Bull/Chinese Shar-Pei mix. She originally came to the Arizona Animal Welfare League on March 1, 2012, and then adopted exactly a month later. She was then returned to AAWL earlier this year when it was found that while she is very social and loves the dog park and other dogs, she isn’t a fan of living in the same home with them. Maya is a very shy girl and it takes a while for her to warm up to any new human friend, but once she does, she has a way of stealing your heart and making you fall for her.
A story like that at the heart of "Runner Runner," about a young American gambler who gets sucked way above his head into the criminal doings of a big-time offshore operator, would have found its ideal life as a tough, punchy, black-and-white programmer back in the 1950s. Today, it would have been most viable as a grandiose character study done on an operatic scale by a filmmaker like Martin Scorsese or Michael Mann. What's actually up onscreen in this vaguely ambitious but tawdry melodrama falls into an in-between no man's land that endows it with no distinction whatsoever, a work lacking both style and insight into the netherworld it seeks to reveal. Despite an intriguing setup and Ben Affleck and Justin Timberlake heading the cast, this Fox release holds a losing box-office hand.
The precedent was set with Desert Vista’s first athletic Hall of Fame class one year ago.
It’s clear that Desert Vista swim coach Shawn O’Connell has much more respect for Xavier than the Dodgers do for the Diamondbacks.

He was 8,000 miles away from home, had 10,000 people rooting against him, dealt with a bum ankle and it ended in a dog pile.

The Mean of Teal fell short of their goal as the Ahwatukee Little League minors saw the season end on Wednesday.
‘The Conjuring” provides its audience with a checklist of ways to know if you’re living in a haunted house. Dog turns up dead, check. Previous owner boarded up the basement, check. Doors constantly creaking open, check. Birds flying into the side of the house, check. Your wife keeps getting unexplained bruises during the night, check. One of your daughters sleepwalks, check. Another one of your daughters sees a creepy figure at night, check. Another one of your daughters has a play date with a little dead boy, check. Personally, I would have packed my bags and hit the road after the dog got the axe, but that’s just me.
Kevin Cron learned how to hit again. By failing at it.
The magic continues for the Ahwatukee Little League 10-11s.
I recently found a book at an estate sale for $1, called “Billy Sunday: The Man and His Message,” by William T. Ellis, published in 1914. I didn’t know much about Billy Sunday other than that he was an evangelist in America a long time ago. What a treasure this book has been.
