Rarely has a story about an angelic schoolgirl been narrated by Death. But such is the case in the dark, yet wondrous Nazi Germany-set "The Book Thief." ''Here's a small fact: You are going to die," we're told via voiceover by the Grim Reaper as we meet our young heroine, Liesel Meminger, played exquisitely by 13-year-old French-Canadian newcomer Sophie Nelisse.

Boulder City, Nev. -- It’s easy to trade the wild ways of Las Vegas for the wilds of the nearby Colorado River: All it takes is a call to a boating outfitter and a federally-approved form of ID.
This past week I saw a new “word” floating all over the Internet — “Twerking,” which was trending all over social media since Miley Cyrus’ performance on the MTV VMAs. I will admit that I have not and will not be watching the video — to me this is qualified as TMI (Too Much Information). I did look up the word “Twerking,” out of curiosity. According to the Oxford Dictionary Online it’s a dance move that involves a person, usually a woman, shaking her hips in an up-and-down bouncing motion, causing the dancer to shake, “wobble” and “jiggle.” Wikipedia says to twerk is “to dance to popular music in a sexually provocative manner involving thrusting hip movements and a low, squatting stance.” After reading that explanation, I can guarantee my dance moves DO NOT contain “Twerking” and if they did, I’m quite sure I would pull a muscle!
Our family room in the summer time is the No. 1 focal point for all gatherings and activities, from special to mundane. It’s our favorite place to hang out, hide out, and chill out from the humid summer monsoon. It’s the gathering place for the family, it’s the casual place for entertaining friends, it’s the kids homework and play space, it’s TV central and it’s definitely the coolest retreat and the most utilized room of the house.

At the beginning of this week, the AFN team had the task of deciding when we wanted to launch our new website.
Desert Vista senior Rachael Clark got an opportunity few in America receive, let along a teenager.
When he was young, he rose before dawn to tackle chores on the farm. As the years wore on and he no longer had to do so much of the physical labor himself, he still started his day at 4 in the morning, getting farm business out of the way by 6 so he could get on with other important matters, like serving the school board, Rotary Club and Methodist Church.
Ahwatukee natives Dan Mermelstein and Rob Rohn over the years have created a commodity of themselves by being owners of their own business Vivid Racing, based out of Gilbert.
Preparing teens for adulthood includes helping them navigate the ins and outs of social media. Sometimes teens don’t think before they act. But, this makes sense because the prefrontal cortex is not fully developed until the mid-20s. This part of the brain is responsible for “executive functions;” which includes the ability to organize thoughts, solve problems, foresee possible consequences and delay gratification. That’s why many times adolescents do things that simply don’t make sense to us. So, when it comes to social media they need to be educated.
Mountain Pointe outfielder Jake Alexander helped Team Arizona to the Jr. Sunbelt Classic title in Oklahoma as the team went 9-1, including a 5-2 win over Colorado in the title game.
Local churches in Ahwatukee Foothills are keeping their heads above the sea of technology with the use of iPhone, Android and tablet apps for their members. Along with the surge in use of Bible apps, online podcasts of sermons and social media, non-denominational Christian churches as a whole are remembering that relevancy is key. Pastor Jeff Zubeck of Living Word Bible Church said “keeping up with the times” is key, though the larger scope of the church shouldn’t change the main message, just the method of delivery. Whether in church services or at home, members and attendees of Mountain Park Community Church can literally have their church in their pocket.

Wes Anderson’s delightful “Moonrise Kingdom” became the indie smash of 2012 thanks to its blend of top-notch talent, clever writing and irresistible charm – a seemingly simple combination but a surprising rarity in Hollywood’s current landscape. It’s no wonder that it nabbed a well-deserved Oscar nomination for Best Original Screenplay, an honor that Anderson and co-writer Roman Coppola share.
January means resolutions. My guess is that at least one of your resolutions falls under the category of being happier in some area of your life. If so, you might want to take a look at Gretchen Rubin’s new book, “Happier at Home” (2012). Her previous book, “The Happiness Project,” was No. 1 on the New York Times bestseller list for months. Although I hadn’t read that one, I bought her next book as the “perfect” gift for someone. Before I wrapped it I skimmed it a little further than in the bookstore. Soon I was reading each page and knew I had to have my own copy. This is a valuable and inspirational reference for any individual, family or home — the kind of book you might not read at one sitting or from beginning to end, but snippets on a daily or weekly basis. With a highlighter.
As a dark veil began to sweep over Europe in 1939 — the pale hint of what would come from Nazi rule — a stockbroker from England took a course of action that would save the lives of nearly 700 children.
