You’re probably aware that Pulte Homes is trying to purchase the now-defunct Lakes Golf Club and put up almost 300 homes. Owner Wilson Gee closed the course last May and is trying to sell it to Pulte. Pulte is touting the move as an “enhancement” to Ahwatukee. But, the existing CC&Rs strictly forbid the course’s use for any purpose other than a golf course. Even worse, Pulte’s plan to “set aside” the CC&Rs would automatically apply to the Ahwatukee Country Club as well.
The House voted Wednesday to require voters to reauthorize any future measures they approve at the ballot.
"Red meat is not bad for you. Fuzzy, green meat is bad for you.” For all intents and purposes, I am a vegetarian and therefore believe red meat is bad for you but wholeheartedly concur that fuzzy green meat is way worse. So what does this have to do with computers? There are programs and corporate tactics that are bad for your computer and others that are not so bad. The trick is how to tell the difference!
Jessica Fong for Performance. Jessica is currently managing the annual Key Club Blood Drive, which she has done for the past three years.

She devotes countless hours and effort to ensuring the success of this event, and deserves to be recognized for the remarkable work she has done.
With St. Patrick's Day nearly upon us, our minds often turn to corned beef and cabbage. This recipe was inspired by that tradition, but swaps out the corned beef in favor of smoked fish (also incredibly popular in Ireland) in a richly satisfying savory broth.
GLENDALE – Soon after the nets were cut down about year ago and a perennial power was dismantled, Division I girls basketball coaches knew for the first time in years a state title was in the offing.
For years Cathi Herrod and her Center for Arizona Policy have flexed their political muscles and pushed through legislation that represented what she calls “fundamental principles,” often those espoused in the Bible.
Members of the School Boundary Change Committee met Monday evening to discuss agendas on changing the boundaries of Kyrene Schools east of Interstate 10.
There’s something very powerful, profound, and cathartic about the 40 days of Lent. Even at times in my life when I felt alienated from the body of Christ, wanted nothing to do with “organized” religion, or pushed faithful living to the edges of my being, Lent has always been important in my life. On Ash Wednesday (March 5 this year), the church calls us all to the observance of a holy Lent. It’s a strange and compelling invitation.
Ice vs. Heat
What to serve at this year’s Oscar party? I had no clear idea about the right dish until I glanced at a list of the movies in contention.
To be perfectly upfront, I’ve never been a huge Kevin Costner fan. That’s not to say he hasn’t been good in a few movies such as “Field of Dreams.” He’s even directed some great movies … well one great movie at least. Then in the late ‘90s, Costner seemed to go on a major ego trip, constantly casting himself as mankind’s savior in movies like “Waterworld” and “The Postman.” Now he’s riding the comeback train with effective work in “Hatfields & McCoys” and “Man of Steel.” “3 Days to Kill” is unfortunately a step backwards for Costner. It won’t kill his career again, but it certainly won’t help it either.
The state Senate sent Gov. Jan Brewer controversial legislation billed as protecting religious freedom on Monday even as two more senators who voted last week for SB 1062 now say that was a mistake.
More than 78 million strong, baby boomers are reaching retirement age (65) at a record pace — 10,000 per day, to be exact, according to the Pew Research Center — and living years longer than previous generations. By the time all the boomers will have turned 65 in 2030, 18 percent of the nation’s population will be at least that age, according to the research center’s projections. Compare that to the population makeup just four years ago, when a little more than 10 percent of Americans were ages 65 and older.
The W.P. Carey School of Business’ February housing report reveals that new home sales are showing the largest percentage price increase in all three measures over the last year for the greater Phoenix area.
The synagogue is a place with many doors. People enter for a wide range of reasons: to learn, to socialize, to make a contribution to the community, to develop values in our children, to celebrate the seasons of life, to mourn losses of many kinds. However they enter, we welcome them into a caring community.
If you have ever watched “Alice in Wonderland” you probably remember the immortal words of the unpunctual White Rabbit, “I’m late, I’m late, for a very important date!” Whether you are looking forward to college or are already there, now is the time to make it a habit to be early to whatever task, meeting, appointment, party, and class you must attend. I can tell you, now being in the professional world and from my time in college, that if you have somewhere to be, you do not want to be running behind. It’s why I am now committed to the “five minute rule.”
“Republicans are ticked because CVS drugstores will quit selling cigarettes because it conflicts with the primary purpose of a drugstore. Arizona legislative bodies want to repeal medicaid coverage on 134,000 people, leaving them only to die. Doesn’t that make the Arizona Legislature a death panel, and from what planet do their constituents hail?”
NEW YORK — When people take an interest in cooking, broth sales apparently get a bump.
With Mardi Gras looming, I thought it might be fun to cook up some New Orleans-styled goodies featuring duck, andouille sausage and Creole seasoning. These rich ingredients are typical of the fare from this town that knows how to party — an instinct that goes into overdrive during Mardi Gras.
Two years ago the Republican-controlled Legislature sought to get voters to kill the Citizens Clean Elections Act, claiming it's wrong for politicians to get public money. Now some of those same GOP lawmakers want to belly up to the bar and get handouts of public dollars for everything from sending out communications to constituents to buying tickets for special events.
State lawmakers hope to use fees paid by medical marijuana users and dispensaries to convince everyone else not to inhale.
More Americans than ever feel our federal government has been permanently taken over by special interests and collectivists.
State lawmakers are moving to make it easier for anyone to sue a city over its gun laws, and the sponsor said he's specifically aiming it at Tucson.
