As it has for the past 12 years, the Town of Gilbert is hosting what has become one of the nation’s largest celebrations of the U.S. Constitution, with activities and events that will culminate September 21, with the Constitution Week Fair and Concert, featuring musician and singer David Osmond.
In 1997, then Presiding Bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), The Rev. H. George Anderson wrote a book called, “A Good Time to be the Church.” His successor, The Rev. Mark Hanson, who will complete 12 years as ELCA Presiding Bishop in November, quipped that he was thinking of writing a book called, “It’s Not All That Great a Time to Be the Church.”
This Tuesday, Aug. 27, will be the final day to vote in the Phoenix City Council election.
May 24, 2013 marked my last day of work for the 2012-2013 school year. As soon as I received notification that my final paycheck was available, I literally “threw up the deuces,” hugged my colleagues, and “eased on down the road.” I was determined to have a carefree summer — one devoid of daily commentaries regarding instructional strategies and the effectiveness of Common Core.
Ahwatukee-based Protecting Arizona’s Resources and Children (PARC) hand delivered more than 300 pages worth of comments and reports to the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) on Tuesday, which summarizes their opposition to the South Mountain Loop 202 Freeway.
Q: I was surprised to see how many prescriptions my father is currently taking. Is it normal for elderly to be prescribed so many different medications?
How many years have we been discussing illegal immigration reform? It seems like it has been headline news for the last 10 years. It has been discussed from the local level to the U.S. House, Senate and White House, yet only now has any serious written effort at reform been made.
As the saying goes, “Good things come to people who wait.” For some time I have been suggesting to anyone who is in the market for a new computer to wait a while for Windows 8 to be improved, and that time may be around the corner. This is welcome news to those of you who have had the misfortune of either purchasing a Windows 8 computer or have received a gift with the ill-fated operating system installed on a new computer.
Active members of Protecting Arizona’s Resources and Children (PARC) in our Village of Ahwatukee and outlying residential areas aim to stop the South Mountain Freeway from being built on Pecos Road. Preventing the destruction of our community and South Mountain is the main goal of PARC, a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization.
It’s no secret to Realtors that fabulous kitchens sell homes. Improve the room used primarily for food preparation, and the entire house will feel homier to residents, guests and prospective buyers alike.
The only incredible thing about "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone" is that way it makes Steve Carell so thoroughly and irreparably unlikable. In a film about magic tricks, this is the most difficult feat of all.
We are pleased to see that Gov. Brewer has prioritized resources for the implementation of Arizona’s Common Core Standards in her fiscal year 2014 budget.
Vintage dishware doesn’t have to gather dust in the china cabinet.
So you've driven downtown to shop, parked the car, plunked a quarter into the meter and -- nothing.
“That movie would have been infinitely better if it had been shown in 3-D.” I cannot speak for the rest of the movie going population, but this is one sentence I will never utter walking out of a cineplex. That is not to say 3-D technology is completely expendable. With the right movie, 3-D can be effectively exploited and have an enriching impact on a cinematic experience. In a majority of cases though, 3-D merely acts as a shameful method for the studio to increase the ticket price. Some people buy into the assumption that 3-D makes a movie appear more realistic and integrates the audience into the action. When not properly executed, however, 3-D can have dark, dreary and distracting consequences on a film originally shot in 2-D. In that sense, 3-D not only robs the audience of an extra $3, but also takes them out of the motion picture.
In just nine months people of all ages are getting the training they need to become professional barbers at a local barber college.
It is said that imitation is the most sincere form of flattery. If that is true, there must be a global love affair with Apple products of epic proportions. My longtime readers know I have mixed feelings about the sensibility of paying the higher prices charged for anything that begins with an i, but I also feel the “i” products have changed the way we work and play. Just a few years ago, we had one computer for the whole house and that was loaded with the latest and greatest software that would allow us to use email, surf the Internet at a blazing 56K/second speed and possible create a birthday card for Aunt Gladys. These days everyone walks around with a personal computer in their hand that also takes phone calls.
This year, four candidates for the Kyrene School District Governing Board each face tight rivalry, as they compete for three available seats on the board.
Complaining about Congress is practically a national pastime, so I know I won’t be breaking new ground here. But recently, Congress introduced an amendment that would end production of the F-35B. Their solution: For us to go back to the dangerously outdated F-18. This makes no sense to me. We have invested way too much into our next generation F-35’s to stop now. They will carry our military for decades to come. Thankfully, enough Congressmen voted the amendment down, but it served as another reminder of the scary backward thinking from some leaders in Washington.
I love watching “Seinfeld!” I can watch the same episode numerous times and never get tired of it. I especially like how they develop certain characters and phrases. One of my favorite phrases is “one of those guys” who do or say certain things that brand them as different from George and Jerry, such as a guy who can walk right up to a complete strange girl and ask her out. George and Jerry could never do that because they were not “one of those guys.”
And then he said, "The executive branch also needs to change. Too often, it's inefficient, outdated and remote. That's why I've asked this Congress to grant me the authority to consolidate the federal bureaucracy so that our Government is leaner, quicker, and more responsive to the needs of the American people."
As the 2012 state Legislative gets under way, AAA hopes that legislators will take an important step in protecting Arizona children. HB 2154 aims to do just that, providing a long overdue update to Arizona's outdated child passenger law.
