The mystery surrounding the death of former heavyweight boxer Zora Folley, including what actually occurred the night the Chandler resident died more than four decades ago, is the subject of a new book by author and former reporter Marshall Terrill.
While traveling in Central America, I had the opportunity to worship at an international, interdenominational, English-speaking church. The congregation contained Africans, Italians, Spaniards, Latinos, Americans, and Asians. We sang old Irish hymns and modern, Australian worship choruses.

It was a wonderful, diverse experience, and for a little while I thought the kingdom of God had come.

Wow, all that rain. Have you passed by the Lakes “golf course” since the storm? The lake is back and almost full. Where would all that water have gone if a builder had “red tile roofed” the area? (Maybe into your kitchen or pool)?
Looking for a cool refresher with a little kick? This cocktail from Thirsty Lion Pub and Grill packs a nice punch, balanced by the soothing fizz of ginger beer. Sounds like just the ticket after a long week at the office.
Tailgating is fine and dandy — and definitely fun if you’ve got the time — but if like us you’ve got five things to do before kickoff and no time for packing the cooler, here are five places to grab a bite before or after the big game.

Arizona State University. Mill Avenue. Arizona Mills and Tempe Marketplace. These are some of the places and institutions most associated with Tempe today. While ASU and Mill Avenue both have deep roots in our town’s history, there is much more history to this desert city than we see at first glance.

Reality has a habit of raining down hard and melting away the comforts formed by the kindness of imagination and the vagaries of memory. There’s the way a person wants to remember an event that occurred in his or her life, and then there’s the way the event actually played out, complete with details absent of sympathy.

This spring, as tragic reports surfaced of veterans dying while waiting for care at the Phoenix VA, I hosted a town hall forum at Burton Barr Central Library where the families of four veterans who passed away stood before a packed room to tell their stories.
It’s hard to think of many actors from the past few decades who were one of a kind, but Robin Williams was truly a performing force unlike anything that’s ever existed. No one will ever be able to fill his now sadly empty shoes. The fact that his life was taken in such a lonely, horrific fashion after a long struggle with depression only makes this loss more tragic. For now, however, let’s focus on how Williams lived as apposed to how he died. What a life he lived and what an unparalleled career full of laughs, inspiration, and flubber he’s left behind. In honor of this great talent, here are my five personal choices for his best performances in film.
Studies have shown patients in medical centers can benefit greatly from art on the walls.
