I read with disdain the pitiful appeal of Pulte Homes (AFN, July 13, as published by their paid hack, Randy Christman). I do not know Mr. Christman, but I know that he willingly presents false choices for all residents of Ahwatukee, not just The Lakes.
There are so many unconstitutional acts used by President Obama that it is hard to chronicle all of his actions. One issue is his use of the Executive Orders that he keeps using. If he sends a bill to Congress and it doesn’t get passed, Obama issues an Executive Order to accomplish his actions. This, of course, is against the Constitution. The Constitution specifies that Congress passes bills, the president executes bills, and the Judiciary reviews them for constitutionality. By eliminating Congress from legislation he has decided to become a dictator of a Totalitarian government, and unfortunately is succeeding in his subterfuge.
A new fruit that research says packs more antioxidants than popular “superfoods” like blueberries, acai berries and goji berries is establishing itself in the aisles of mainstream grocery stores, showing up in everything from juices to powdered supplements to baby food.
I’ve been traveling a lot this summer. While I love visiting new destinations, sometimes I dread the whole security process at the airport. Standing in lines and being herded like cattle can feel like such an inconvenience. I miss the days when I could just walk to the gate and board a plane. It’s easy to complain, but I understand why we have such extreme security measures.

The Ahwatukee Foothills Chamber of Commerce thanks the many volunteers who assisted us in putting together this year’s Red, White and Boom fireworks celebration. These volunteers give up their family time for the good of the community, and we are grateful for their help! Presented by Vision Community Management at the Ahwatukee Country Club, the Chamber is proud to continue this 39-year Ahwatukee tradition.
Rejecting arguments the state cannot afford it, a judge has ordered Gov. Jan Brewer and the Republican-controlled Legislature to come up with an extra $316 million immediately — and potentially $2.9 billion over five years — to make up for aid to schools they illegally withheld.
Some types of pears and other fruit don’t change color as they ripen; you have to feel the softening. If you wait too long, you’ll eat overly sweet fruit or have to throw it away. Similarly, if your will has been safely tucked away for awhile, it may have passed its peak financial efficiency unnoticed.
The excitement of acceptance into that dream college has passed. The first day of classes is still weeks away. But the resources provided by high school teachers and computer labs are no longer available for recent graduates.
Shame on SCOTUS. Its recent 5-4 ruling to allow the owners of Hobby Lobby and other closely held, for-profit enterprises to deny certain types of reproductive health care to its women employees moves society backwards.
