My role in resurrecting a dead criminal case began a few weeks back with an out-of-the-blue phone call courtesy of a private eye named Don Corbett. He phoned with news of a strange case with ties to a Mesa woman and an impending trip to Scottsdale for an interview or potentially an interrogation.
Bean is Havana brown, with a beautiful rare coat and greenish eyes. She is sweet and lovable, and craves attention and petting. Her hobbies include reading, tai chi, and yoga.

“The Muppets” was just about a perfect movie, tapping into our nostalgia while also offering something new and innovative. There’s no way director James Bobin and screenwriter Nicholas Stoller could ever top it. Kermit and friends acknowledge this fact in the opening number of “Muppets Most Wanted,” singing about how the sequel is never as good as the original.

It’s difficult to comprehend the struggle a child suffering in a third-world country goes through every day and how your small contribution to a nonprofit makes a difference. The African Children’s Choir, performing this month in the East Valley, will give you that personal experience with not only the cause but the kids you’re supporting.
My incredible day at the Renaissance Festival began as my family and I walked through the gates and smelled fresh baked goods. We met several costumed people and enjoyed catching bubbles blown from a woman with a beautifully painted face. Later, we met some gentle greyhounds, which were fun to pet.
March is Women’s History Month. History has not always been fair to women, don’t even get me started on that big fool Henry VIII, who killed his wives for not giving him a son — when science now knows it was all his fault. My middle-schoolers are always extremely upset about the lack of prominent women in ancient history.
An attorney for a California divorce lawyer accused of murder in Arizona says he expects that his client will get released from jail early next week in response to a judge's decision that threw out a jury's guilty verdict in the case and ordered a new trial.

The new movie has the same gritty and dark HD tonal quality of the first movie, as well as the sporadic ultra-slow-motion effects that capture the exaggerated battles and blood-spilling in extreme detail; but it’s missing some of the heart from often copied original.
