My congratulations to Susi Fathauer for her letter, “No to more homes, traffic” on July 2, as she scored a hole-in-one. The core issue in play really isn’t about golf “it’s about open space.” We need to protect our environment and the keeping the current open spaces — open does just that.
While all the attention is on The Lakes Golf Course takeover by Pulte, it looks like the Ahwatukee Country Club golf course is going downhill.

With a new school year on the horizon, it’s time to think about what’s for lunch. Brown bagging it is plenty economical, but a steady diet of sandwiches becomes boring pretty quickly, to say nothing of the fact that all those servings of refined carbs simply don’t provide the energy necessary to power you through a long afternoon.

Hidey is a very beautiful 8-year-old snowshoe Siamese cat with a shy but very loving demeanor. She was given her name by her previous owner because when he first took her home, she liked to hide. Unfortunately her owner passed away last year. She will require a calm home where she can socialize, given plenty of tender, loving care and slowly introduced to her new surroundings. She is good with other cats and maybe dogs.
