Kudos to Phoenix police Sgt. Joel Tranter for his tenacious response in rescuing a 15-year-old Shiba Inu pooch named Saki from certain danger in the morning hours of July 28. This Ahwatukee resident had witnessed an already over-heated, confused and exhausted Saki as she wondered in the street on Equestrian Drive near the Warner-Elliot Loop, unable to stop because of traffic. But thanks to this officer, while patrolling the streets of Ahwatukee, he spotted Saki and with the help of a neighborhood Good Samaritan, Tranter was able to coax scared little Saki into his air-conditioned patrol vehicle and whisk her off to a local veterinary hospital where they supplied her with water and scanned for a micro-chip, which she in fact had. This enabled officer Tranter to locate a frantic but very relieved and thankful owner and reunited the two.
Every time I hear Arizona State Treasurer and gubernatorial candidate Doug Ducey boast of his business background I start having flashbacks of wealthy businessman and ex-governor Fife Symington.

The last time so few people were arrested at the country’s borders was 1973, when the Border Patrol recorded just fewer than 500,000 arrests. And the volume of people being arrested at the border remains dramatically lower than the all-time high of more than 1.6 people in 2000. [AP Photo/Eduardo Verdugo]
On July 2, director Scott Derrickson adds “Deliver Us From Evil” to his cache of creepy horror films including “Sinister” and “The Exorcism of Emily Rose.” Based on the real-life experiences of former-NYPD-officer-now-demonologist Ralph Sarchie, the film stars, along with plenty of demonic possessions, a rich cast including Eric Bana as the pessimistic, skeptic cop Sarchie, Joel McHale as his joke-cracking partner and Edgar Ramirez as Mendoza, an undercover priest. GetOut had the chance to talk with Eric Bana and Joel McHale about the upcoming film.
Along with the happiness and fun pets bring to our lives comes the responsibility of providing a lifetime of care and well-being. Caring for a family pet should be a family job. Children can and should participate in the care of a family pet. Helping with the routine care of a family pet can enable children to become self-reliant and learn about responsibility. One way to make pet care an educational and fun family project is to set up a token economy. This can also help children learn to count, add, subtract, and the basics of making a budget.
