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.
Kimber is an active 3-year-old female Beagle mix who is housebroken and can use a doggie door. She gets along great with her foster brothers and loves to play and wrestle. She is crate trained and loves to cuddle and give kisses. Kimber would be good with older kids, probably best for kids 10 and older since she is little food aggressive. She does not bark much except at meal times to tell you she is hungry. She walks well on a leash and likes to explore.
Clearly, the gifts under the tree with the eye-catching wrapping paper and bows were the focus of Christmas morning.

It’s a meeting of holidays so rare it will be tens of thousands of years before it happens again. Thanksgiving and the first day of Hanukkah — the Jewish Festival of Lights — fall on the same day this year, creating what many celebrants have dubbed “Thanksgivukkah.” And it’s opened up a whole new world of culinary opportunities.
It looked like Disney Animation was dead in the water for a while there. Sure, Pixar has had the company’s back for almost two decades now. In terms of movies that were solely produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios, though, it was a bit of a downhill spiral from “Pocahontas” in 1995 to “Chicken Little” in 2005. While there were some under appreciated gems in the mix like “The Hunchback of Notre Dame,” nothing took audiences by storm like “Beauty and the Beast” or “The Lion King” did.
Some cooks like to change up the Thanksgiving meal — a sous vide turkey here, a sweet potato souffle there. But on a holiday dedicated to tradition, innovation can spark revolt.
Students at Kyrene Akimel A-al Middle School will showcase “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown,” showing the average day in the life of Charlie Brown and the Peanuts gang.
November comes along and minds are on travel, turkey and family gatherings. This classic slider provides an autumn twist. This Bacon and Bleu Cheese Slider will fast become a family favorite and change up the typical “hamburger night.” The dish is fun, and uses a slight shortcut with cornbread mix and it’s easy to get the kids involved (buttering the pan, mixing the ingredients, what kid doesn’t want to crack an egg?). If you aren’t a bleu cheese fan, easily substitute equal amount of goat or gorgonzola cheese. For an extra kick, add one jalapeno (seeded) to the cornbread mix. Prefer a moister cornbread muffin? Replace 1 cup of the milk with one can creamed corn. Kids typically prefer a toned down version of the mayo, use more or less of the chipotle depending upon your families taste. These sliders make great appetizers for your holiday parties or a great main dish for family meals. Enjoy!
Arizona’s economy continues to mend, spurred largely by people buying cars and parts. Newly released figures from the Department of Revenue show retail sales reported to the state in September topped $4.2 billion. That reflects purchases made in August.
This lovely girl (also known as “Angel”) is a yellow Lab mix, about 6 months old. Currently, she weighs in at 25 pounds full of love, but she’ll continue to grow into a large-sized dog.
Sweet potatoes generally get one of three treatments at the Thanksgiving table.
The Desert Vista boys cross country kept its pack mentality even defeat.
The Ahwatukee Recreation Center (ARC) is in full swing with its ARC Support Our Troops Program and Thanksgiving Food Drive throughout November.
The obsession began somewhere around the same time I got my first pair of Underoos.

The housing market continues its bumpy ride toward full recovery with more lurches, twists and turns than a roller coaster at the state fair.
Candy, ghouls, pumpkins, and the nip of fall’s cold air means Halloween is close. It's the time of year that Brad Butler admonishes children for making fun of the devil by dressing up as Sparky. “You should have been Superman!” he tells them. The poor child, having made fun of the devil, will now soon be devoured warns Mr. Butler. But what do we read at the end of his diatribe? He supports the very mascot about which he warns us by sending a child to ASU. Sounds to me like a bit of hypocrisy is mixed in with that nip of fall’s cold air.
