Credit is most frequently extended by department stores, finance companies, oil companies, credit unions, commercial banks and credit card companies. Those who extend credit are called creditors.
While all the attention is on The Lakes Golf Course takeover by Pulte, it looks like the Ahwatukee Country Club golf course is going downhill. There are brown patches of grass and it looks like it isn’t being fully watered. Wilson Gee says he’s going to keep the Ahwatukee Country Club golf course, but it appears it’s scheduled to die out also.
The city of Phoenix website, phoenix.gov, has a new look and new features for residents, business and visitors that can be viewed more easily from any mobile device.
Some types of pears and other fruit don’t change color as they ripen; you have to feel the softening. If you wait too long, you’ll eat overly sweet fruit or have to throw it away. Similarly, if your will has been safely tucked away for awhile, it may have passed its peak financial efficiency unnoticed.
Ahwatukee's first baseman Nathan Ward (15) looks at the ball stuck in his mitt after getting an out during the AZ District 13 Majors All-Stars championship game between Ahwatukee and Chandler National South at Tempe Sports Complex on Thursday, July 10, 2014.
Question: I’ve noticed that the activity level on my business Facebook page has dropped off considerably, but I haven’t been doing anything different. Did something change with Facebook?
Kyrene School District’s governing board gave the OK to fix some critical roadways at several schools when it approved the 2014-15 Proposed Budget and Identification of Insurance and Condemnation Proceeds by a 3-1 vote during Tuesday evening’s governing board meeting.
I’ve made a habit lately of studying the Amish. I use the word “study” loosely as this is not a simple curiosity of mine or some kind of theological experiment. My exploration flows out of a deep respect and admiration for their faith and spirituality. We English (that’s what the Amish call us outside their communities) recognize them because of their familiar beards, horse-drawn buggies, fine woodworking, or barn-raisings, but there’s a lot more to this group than sturdy furniture and firm dispositions. They have a lively, vibrant faith despite their archaic lifestyles.
After watching and reading about the state treasurer’s debate I thought to myself that with ex-Tempe Mayor Hugh Hallman’s line of “bull” he should be selling used cars. http://www.azcentral.com/story/news/politics/2014/07/08/treasurer-candidates-get-loud-debate/12393627/.
The “Interrupteds” are remodeling, which is a pleasant way of saying that we have ripped off the back end of our house and have been single-handedly air-conditioning the neighborhood for the last month or so.
Light serves a profound function in our lives. Receive too much or too little of it and you’ll experience physical and emotional effects. I remember visiting Alaska in the summer and reading a book by sunlight at 2 in the morning. This was a pretty cool experience, but it made it quite difficult to sleep during my normal times. I also have many friends who live in Seattle and talk about the lack of sunlight they receive on a regular basis. It’s not uncommon for a person to choose where she lives based on the light available in that state. Light affects everything.
How strong is that pina colada? Depending on how it’s made, it could contain as much alcohol as two glasses of wine.
My wife and I do some baby-sitting for a single mom we know so she can have some well-deserved “alone” time. Recently, we took her two munchkins to the dollar theater and watched “Mr. Peabody and Sherman.”
There sure are many different thoughts and ideas about The Lakes Golf Course. Thought I’d send in another idea.
I received the form to sign if I approve of Pulte’s plan for building on the land that had been reserved for a golf course and that now sits vacant. The plan looks decent and should please the surrounding homeowners, as much as anything is able to do so considering they paid a premium to live off of a golf course. I actually signed the form, but I’m not mailing it until I receive an answer “in writing” to a very important question.

Shame on SCOTUS. Its recent 5-4 ruling to allow the owners of Hobby Lobby and other closely held, for-profit enterprises to deny certain types of reproductive health care to its women employees moves society backwards.
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.
Garrett Lever is settling in nicely to his home at Weber State. In just his third year, and at the age of 25, the Desert Vista graduate has been named as an assistant coach.
When considering solar, consumers have a lot to think about, but Attorney General Tom Horne warns residents it’s important to read the fine print on any deal they sign.
Chandler resident John Anderson has always had an appreciation for the Old West. It stems from his relation to a Los Angeles policeman named James Woodard, who happened to be friends with famous Western lawman Wyatt Earp.
A three-year journey for a group of volleyball players, coaches, and families came to its end with an unexpected outcome.
The banner is there for all to see and so far, it appears the message has hit home.
Ben Franklin once said. “If you fail to plan, then you’re planning to fail.” He wasn’t talking about government, but the wisdom applies.
High school dropouts are costing the state of Arizona billions, according to a new report by the Arizona Mayors Education Roundtable.
