As the father of an Arizona State University student, former ASU police officer and former member of the Tempe Police Citizen’s Review Board, I read the Sunday front-page Arizona Republic story, “ASU PD staffing trails campus growth,” with considerable interest.
Many of us have one room in the house that doesn’t really have a job. Maybe we set it up with an air bed once in awhile for guests, or shove out-of-season clothing boxes in there, or use it as a holding zone for stuff we’re not sure what to do with.
Phoenix has much to offer that appeals to residents and tourists alike, from fantastic events like Devour Phoenix and the Super Bowl, great places to take the kids like the Science Center and our numerous parks, to world-class restaurants and endless sunny skies. These are just a few of the features of Phoenix that draw hundreds of thousands of tourists to our city each year, injecting millions of dollars into our economy, and these same features make living in Phoenix so enjoyable for those of us who call it home.
It probably doesn’t happen as much as you’d like, but from time to time, you have some extra disposable income. When this happens, how should you use the funds?

The Republicans argue that raising the minimum wage will increase unemployment, increase prices, and make our businesses less competitive. The data does not support these claims. In fact, states that have a higher minimum wage have lower unemployment, and healthier economies.
On Aug. 8, I read an article written by Dan Tamblo, a good writer. I have also read a few other articles about The Lakes and the proposed residential housing project in this paper.
