Las Vegas • After the four teams involved in the Barry Sollenberger Classic get back together at the respective facilities this week, the first game of the 2014 football season will forever be in the record books.
Lost in all the big statewide races in Arizona's primary election are hard-fought congressional battles in which Democrats are trying to clinch a Phoenix-area seat and Republicans are vying for the chance to unseat Democratic incumbents in three districts.
Zach Bauman slowly trotted his way down a ramp leading off the field at University of Phoenix Stadium. He just finished practice with the Arizona Cardinals, but this practice was different. For one of the very few times in his football-playing life, he wasn’t the star of the show.
It might come in a flash or happen over the course of the season, but by the end of the year, there are going to be a handful of football players from the Southeast Valley who are going to have breakout seasons in 2014.
I support Andrew Walter for Congress in Congressional District 9 because he has the best chance to defeat the current Democrat, Kyrsten Sinema. This year’s congressional election is very important to me, and I am committed to the person who can stand up to Kyrsten’s far-left agenda. Andrew’s leadership abilities are evidenced by leading ASU football (2000-2004) and from his NFL career. His strength of character will assure a tough, yet successful fight against the Sinema campaign this fall.
I support Andrew Walter in his campaign to become the next representative of our district, Congressional District 9. He displays natural leadership skills as evident from his NFL career. Andrew has the ability to connect with the younger generation but still understands the issues of other generations. He’s truly concerned with the state of the country and all the families currently struggling.
It’s hard to believe that approximately 20 years ago, a home demo called “Shine” shot straight up the charts and launched a little-known group from Stockbridge, Ga., called Collective Soul. From there, it was all a blur.

"Legends of Candlestick," will be the final football game to be played at Candlestick Park on July 12 when Montana, Craig, Jerry Rice, Steve Young, Dwight Clark and other 49er teammates play a flag football game against a team of NFL stars captained by Hall of Famer Dan Marino.

Note to Andrew Walter’s guest commentary on June 1 (“Today’s Phoenix VA is tomorrow’s Obamacare,” AFN). As an independent voter, I will vote in the upcoming Republican primary. I watch with interest what spews forth from the candidates. It appears Mr. Walter was too busy at Arizona State University to take classes that would have enhanced his reading comprehension. The Affordable Health Care act is not “government-run health care.” Those effected by the AHC still visit their “private” health care provider. Paid for by those “private” health care insurance providers. Works the same as your current private health care insurance, which I presume is somehow connected to the NFL pension and benefits you enjoy. You go to the doctor, the doctor bills your insurer, and that HMO decides what and how much to pay. As a Vietnam vet, I watch the unfolding issue with the VA with great interest.
