That faint noise you hear is the sound of pint-sized spooks, banshees, and vampires gathering on your lawn. They will soon be knocking at the door plastic pumpkins outstretched. Spare yourself the tricks and go ahead and give up the treats - the unhealthy, sweet, nougat-filled goodies in your cupboard.
Love always wins. It may be denied for a time, but not forever. When it can’t flourish, it burns and breaks us. When love is allowed, it transforms, improves and heals. It makes us deeper, kinder, more caring people. When we love, we see beyond ourselves, and come to experience another person’s full humanity. When we recognize another person’s full humanity, we can see it in everyone else, too. The more love the better.
This weekend, the Arizona Grand Resort and Spa is hosting an Activeight Fitness Enthusiast Experience featuring some of the nation’s most recognized fitness professionals.
With “Thank You For Smoking,” “Juno,” and “Up in the Air,” few modern directors have done a more authentic job at capturing the age we live in better than Jason Reitman. It’s actually pretty surprising that it’s taken him this long to make a movie concerning digital media’s effect on culture. What’s even more shocking is the fact that some of these innovations are barely a decade old. On top of all that, it’s only been 13 years since the 9/11 attacks, which instigated the need for every man, woman, and child to have a cell phone. We might have gotten by fine without them for years, but now it’s impossible to imagine life without any mobile devices or social networking.

You’d think this past decade’s vampire fad would have brought us a number of movies starring Dracula. Strangely enough, however, everyone’s favorite public domain vampire has been missing in action as of late. That’s what happens when you choose to do films like “Dracula 2000,” “Van Helsing,” and “Blade: Trinity.” Dracula should stay cozy in his coffin because “Dracula Untold” isn’t going to reboot his film career. As badly as he needs a comeback, this is one Dracula story that should have remained untold.
If there are eight women reading this article, one of you will develop breast cancer by the age of 80. Or if there are 48,222 of us women in Ahwatukee (ZIP codes 85044, 85048, 85045), 5,787 have already or will have developed breast cancer before the age of 80; a fairly sobering thought. Equally sobering is this: if there are 48,960 men in Ahwatukee, a little less than 1 percent or 490 will develop breast cancer. (Demographic statistics came from HOMES.POINT2.com).

Ahwatukee Foothills resident Julie Croley has attended the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in downtown Phoenix for years, because of friends who’ve encouraged her to attend, but in 2003, when she was diagnosed with breast cancer, the race took on a new meaning.

On the night of Aug. 28, my life and the lives of my family changed forever. My brother, fourth-generation police officer Eric White, was killed in the line of duty. I saw firsthand how Phoenix rallied around our family, and I am forever grateful to everyone who showed kindness to my family.
