I first noticed Timmy Hernandez in the spring when he was doing one-on-one drills with Mountain Pointe’s big-time recruit Jalen Brown.
As we bid farewell to the 2013 football season; a crazy, cooky, memorable (for all the right and wrong reasons), let’s take a look at a few impact players.
Disney will be visiting Ahwatukee Foothills this Thursday, Dec. 12, and hosting an open audition to find musical theater performers for its Disney Cruise Line.
Throughout her basketball career at Mountain Pointe, Kaylah Lupoe has been known more for her defense than her offense.
Is it me or does it seem this time of year things seem less stressful, more fun, and energizing?
Timmy Hernandez might be the most understated two-way player in the state.
The state’s jobless rate dropped last month — but just a bit — indicating that Arizona’s recovery is languishing.
Whether on Facebook or Twitter, Instagram or LinkedIn, we are plastering snapshots of our lives all over the Internet.
Mountain Pointe senior defensive back Dominique Fenstermacher announced Friday he verbally committed to UNLV.
A year after the news off the court was sometimes more prevalent than what happened on it, it will be refreshing to focus on the wins and losses this girls basketball season.
Nearly any time of day, if you’re driving around Ahwatukee, you’ll easily come across at least a handful of people on the roads running — this is one reason why I love living in this community.
The honors that follow being the the top-ranked team in the state are starting to roll in for Mountain Pointe.
Like all coaches in Norris Vaughan’s position he has to guard against the possibility of the upset.
An anti-bullying allegory writ on the largest possible scale, "Ender's Game" frames an interstellar battle between mankind and pushy ant-like aliens, called Formics, in which Earth's fate hinges on a tiny group of military cadets, most of whom haven't even hit puberty yet. At face value, the film presents an electrifying star-wars scenario — that rare case where an epic space battle transpires entirely within the span of two hours — while at the same time managing to deliver a higher pedagogical message about tolerance, empathy and coping under pressure. Against considerable odds, this risky-sounding Orson Scott Card adaptation actually works, as director Gavin Hood pulls off the sort of teen-targeted franchise starter Summit was hoping for.
Dec. 14-15, Muscle Milk is teaming up with Sullivan Performance and the Fischer Institute to offer high school football players a game-changing experience and three Mountain Pointe players are among the 40 Arizona junior players selected to participate.
(Editor’s note: Sarah Barnes, the mother of Mountain Pointe wide receiver/defensive back Jalen Brown, was asked by the AFN to reflect on the parent’s perspective of having a big-time Division I recruit in the family and the process that led to him choosing Oregon.)
It’s an odd football week.
This is in response to Don Crook’s letter on Oct. 11, “Obama is destroying America.” Where does this guy get his information? Obviously he informs himself from the extreme right-wing media where these mindless morons believe everything they are told. HUD is not going to Africa to recruit Muslims to house in non-integrated neighborhoods, and more importantly President Obama is not a Muslim. Anyone who believes that nonsense and anything even close just shows their ignorance by spouting it like it was true when it is patently false. He is very lucky to live in a country where he can say such derogatory things about our government and our President and not suffer any consequences other than to look very foolish.
There was a time when the feet of Garrison Schwartz were holding him back and now they just might take him where he wants to go.
The Mountain Pointe defense has seen a lot of changes.
Four years ago Jalen Brown walked through the doors at Mountain Pointe highly-touted and wore No. 85 his freshman year.
It’s good to be the King.
Last May, our LD 18 legislators acted like Republicans. I guess I should say they acted to represent the Republican Party that I grew up with. I grew up with John Rhodes, Paul Fannin, Barry Goldwater and Sandra Day O’Connor, to name a few, leading the Republican Party. Sen. John McComish, Rep. Bob Robson and Rep. Jeff Dial represented us by voting to support our Kyrene School District. These education votes directly and positively affect our property values. Charter school choice aside, strong neighborhood schools directly affect whether or not our personal property is valued or not.
Arizona’s jobless rate jumped three-tenths of a point last month to 8.3 percent and now is a full percentage point higher than the national figure.
