The resiliency Desert Vista has shown in the early portion of the baseball season cropped up again Saturday only to be trumped by the two-out grind by Hamilton
300: Rise of an Empire is both a prequel and a sequel to the 2007 film, 300, one of the most stylized action films ever made. 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.
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.
In the U.S., more than two-thirds of the class of 2011 was not proficient in math. In Arizona, that number jumped to three out of four students.
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.
“If dozens of skilled teachers and administrators are suddenly bolting from the Gilbert Public Schools, parents are loudly protesting, the interim superintendent throws up his hands to quit early because these people can’t be helped, and if a forceful demand for your resignation is met with standing ovations and cheers from an overflowing board room, then it is time to take the high road. Step away from the dais, and don’t let the door hit you on the way out.”
The easy, popular, and most plausible case to be made for the Division I boys basketball champion is, again, Corona del Sol. Everyone will be chasing the Aztecs in this final week of the state tournaments, everyone still playing knows and acknowledges as such, and Corona has proven any number of cases to be made why they can win a third consecutive state title.

Desert Vista High School has always been known for its rich tradition of excellence, and to continue that tradition the student body recently raised an enormous amount of money to be donated to Feed My Starving Children (FMSC), which assisted the Phoenix Rotary 100 Club’s Million Meal Project.
This year was a year of big headlines in Ahwatukee Foothills.
The community of Ahwatukee has always been a plethora of individuals who band together during times of good and bad.
I’m tired of reading Bill Richardson’s articles where he rallies against any sort of regulation over guns (Latest, “Gun-free zone is truly fatal conceit,” AFN, Dec. 11). His entire argument is to make good the enemy of perfect. He continually gives statistics about how individuals who want to do bad things will do bad things. I agree.
About 45 percent of Americans usually make New Year’s resolutions, according to a survey from the University of Scranton. But the same survey shows that only 8 percent of us actually keep our resolutions. Perhaps this low success rate isn’t such a tragedy when our resolutions involve things like losing a little weight or learning a foreign language. But when we make financial resolutions — resolutions that, if achieved, could significantly help us in our pursuit of our important long-term goals — it’s clearly worthwhile to make every effort to follow through.
I had my conversation in my aunt’s car on a South Dakota road. I’m talking about starting that conversation about your family’s heart history.
Step right up and meet the man who, some say, is the greatest man in American history — George Washington. Though, you will actually be meeting George Fairfax, the man who portrays Washington for a living. Originally from Virginia, Fairfax lives and breathes Washington and will transport you through time to a place where the General is the most respected man in the country.
The 91-degree October weather was no obstacle for 458 cross country runners in the annual Kyrene Conference Cross Country Championship.
Halloween is upon us. Of course, whether you’re navigating the dark corridors of a “haunted house” or just dealing with the “creepy” characters coming to your door demanding candy, you’re probably not too fearful of the sights of the season. But as you go through life, you’ll want to avoid some things that really are scary — such as these investment moves:
The event seemingly gets bigger every year. And rightfully so, but the Dig Pink event, and the cause behind it, can never do enough.
The meeting was inevitable.
