A few Ahwatukee runners decided to pay their Labor Day tribute to the achievements of American workers by laboring in a most peculiar way — running straight uphill for 4.5 miles. The trio, comprised of up-and-comer runners Samuel Van Alstine, Noah Werbelow and local running coach and competitor Clint “Flash” Santoro, ended up in Jerome on the same day with similar goals — run up the hill, survive, and finish as quickly as possible. This challenging course, to put it mildly, sees a rise of 1,000-plus feet in elevation, starting at just under 5,000 and finishing at close to 6,000 feet above sea level.

A proposal asking voters to hike the pay of state legislators by $11,000 a year is getting a decidedly cool reception from Gov. Jan Brewer — as is her own party's nominee for state superintendent of public instruction.
Electing a replacement for Republican Gov. Jan Brewer tops the list of items to watch in Arizona's November general election. Voters also will choose a new secretary of state, attorney general, treasurer and top schools official.
The Old Testament Law contains 613 individual commandments. The majority of these are negative: “Thou shalt not” do such or so. These commandments prohibit activities ranging from coveting your neighbor’s cow to wearing pants made from two different materials.
