More Americans are facing rising caregiver costs. The financial challenge of caring for an aging parent can also create caregiver stress. Don’t allow caring for an aging parent or spouse to become a crisis.
The voters of Arizona deserve a hearty congratulations and a big thank you for the selections they made in the primary. We vanquished the H and H boys, Horne and Huppenthal, sent numerous far right and far left candidates to the political sidelines, and perhaps positioned ourselves to be a little more moderate in our politics as we enter the general election in November. Also, having the disbarred and disingenuous Andrew Thomas take a political hike should be considered a bonus.
Corporations are not people. Our elections are not auctions up to the highest dark-money bidder. I don’t see how anyone can disagree with these statements. But apparently some do. Namely, our U.S. senators and some Arizona Republican candidates running for election, like Doug Ducey.
Republicans may try to block independents from participating in future party primaries after their turnout in last month's election — close to one vote out of every seven — may have affected some races.
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.
For voters in rigged districts where there is only one candidate to vote for that they don’t like, here is an idea to let them show their displeasure. Unlike some places, Arizona does not have “None of the Above” as a ballot election. But they do allow Write In candidates, and a ballot marked for a Write In candidate gets automatically tabulated and will show up immediately in the results available on election night. Instead of voting for the only candidate, or not voting for any candidate, just mark the Write In selection and write “None of the Above” in the blank where a name would go.
A proposal asking voters to hike the pay of state legislators by $11,000 a year is getting a decidedly cool reception from Gov. Jan Brewer — as is her own party's nominee for state superintendent of public instruction.
When Gina Lombardi, owner of the Sail Inn in Tempe, got word that the property housing her longtime bar and music venue was sold to developers, she figured that was the end of her career in the music business. She had no idea at the time that the perfect new space for live music was just down the road from her home in Ahwatukee Foothills.
Electing a replacement for Republican Gov. Jan Brewer tops the list of items to watch in Arizona's November general election. Voters also will choose a new secretary of state, attorney general, treasurer and top schools official.
Like many middle-class parents, we promised our kids that we would pay for their college education, a reasonable promise in the 1980s from two parents who were teachers. We are still paying off their college loans in 2014, yet we feel lucky compared to students and families who are paying off college loans accrued between 2008 and 2014.
Claiming illegal political motives, attorneys for Republicans are asking the U.S. Supreme Court to void the lines drawn by the Independent Redistricting Commission for the state's 30 legislative districts.
