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.
The year 2012 wasn’t exactly the best for Highland High School student David Perre and his family. It was a Murphy’s law kind of year, one in which the family kept finding ways to return to the hospital with a slew of afflictions. Perre’s mom even lost a chunk of her thumb in a situation involving the family dog and some pork.
Few shifts in American customs and politics will ever equal the one launched a brief eight years ago by the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transsexual (LGBT) community. Considering the alternative lifestyle population makes up less than 4 percent of our nation according to the Williams Institute, their success is even more remarkable.
Life expectancies are almost five years longer today than they were 30 years ago, a fact that increases the likelihood you will provide some form of support for aging parents — through home care, helping out with day-to-day chores and errands, or even covering living expenses. That role can make significant demands on your time, energy and financial resources.
The first eight minutes looked like an intrasquad scrimmage. The next 24 minutes played out like a team which won the state championship.
I have written before about Obama appointing 33 czars, to act as central planners. Central planners are required in communist countries, because the government needs to direct policy for all businesses. When we move from capitalism to communism you need to be aware of the differences. In capitalism all businesses work to make their business efficient, so they can compete in the market. In communism the effort is to be inefficient, so they can hire a lot of workers. Obama is going to direct his czars to audit each company, then set their workers salaries (usually 30-50 percent lower). The czars will then require each company to hire 30-50 percent more workers than needed. This will make each company much more inefficient, but because there is no competition it doesn’t matter how efficient you are.
To our Governor, State Senate and House, Senators McCain and Flake and the citizens of Arizona.
Wherever I go in the country, or the world for that matter, if there is a music-related site I take the trouble to visit it. When I was in Rio de Janeiro, I made a beeline for Garota de Ipanema Café and Bar, where the great bossa nova song “The Girl From Ipanema” was written. Last year, while in Nashville, I visited the new Johnny Cash Museum and in New York strolled by the Brill Buildings, where folks like Carole King (“Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow”) and Ellie Greenwich (“Da Doo Ron Ron”) wrote the songs we remember from the 1960s.
Gilbert's Relay for Life event will take place at Williams Field High School on April 11 and April 12. Among the activities conducted during the course of the event is a luminaria ceremony to remember cancer victims. [Photo by Erin Deeley]
Chris Apodaca’s grim childhood began to change for the better when he entered Sunshine Acres at age 10. He had been living on the streets with his sister, two brothers and drug addicted parents for as long as he could remember.
You can hear some good ol’ down home music in Gilbert this weekend.
The year was 1976, and Gary Ernst was a fresh-faced coach at Chandler High who’d taken his young Wolves’ deep into the big-school boys basketball state tournament.
There’s something very powerful, profound, and cathartic about the 40 days of Lent. Even at times in my life when I felt alienated from the body of Christ, wanted nothing to do with “organized” religion, or pushed faithful living to the edges of my being, Lent has always been important in my life. On Ash Wednesday (March 5 this year), the church calls us all to the observance of a holy Lent. It’s a strange and compelling invitation.
The synagogue is a place with many doors. People enter for a wide range of reasons: to learn, to socialize, to make a contribution to the community, to develop values in our children, to celebrate the seasons of life, to mourn losses of many kinds. However they enter, we welcome them into a caring community.
It was with great interest that we read the coalition of Gilbert leaders’ open letter to Town residents and businesses last week. We were encouraged that our community leaders had finally spoken out on the raging storm that threatens our Gilbert Public Schools.
It’s hard to believe that almost 55 years has elapsed since The Osmonds started as a barbershop quartet in Ogden, Utah. More than a half-century and 100 million records later, they are one of the most legendary families of the entertainment industry.
PRESCOTT VALLEY – There was a time in Bob Callison’s young life while growing up in Wisconsin that everything was so dysfunctional he had to runaway.
If you have ever watched “Alice in Wonderland” you probably remember the immortal words of the unpunctual White Rabbit, “I’m late, I’m late, for a very important date!” Whether you are looking forward to college or are already there, now is the time to make it a habit to be early to whatever task, meeting, appointment, party, and class you must attend. I can tell you, now being in the professional world and from my time in college, that if you have somewhere to be, you do not want to be running behind. It’s why I am now committed to the “five minute rule.”
The Superstitions are as familiar a part of the local landscape as places and names like Dobson Ranch or Ellsworth Road, but a compact show at Superstition Mountain Museum is giving renewed perspective to the craggy range.
Dalton Brady and Anthony Robles have the luxury of reflecting.
Already six weeks into 2014, I occasionally still find myself reflecting on the past year. Did I do anything big for the Lord in 2013? (Aren’t we always looking for major accomplishments?) I didn’t take any faraway mission trips, and the Bible study I wrote is not close to being published. But I graduated a second child from being home schooled all the way through high school. I guess that’s a pretty big accomplishment, yet it was made up of being faithful in small, ordinary, everyday things. Day after day, year after year.
James Bond without his martini? "The Big Lebowski" dude without his White Russian? Unthinkable.
More Americans than ever feel our federal government has been permanently taken over by special interests and collectivists.
Nearly 600 young people age out of the state foster care system each year and a local organization wants to find a mentor for as many of them as possible with its new program: THRIVE.
Remember the good old days when a big-budget action picture could earn a hard R rating? It looks like those days are officially dead. “Die Hard,” “The Terminator,” “Total Recall,” these were three of the best action movies of the late ’80s and early ’90s, complete with all the gleeful violence and profanity a kid could desire. Nowadays, everything must be toned down to a PG-13 rating, including the recent sequels and reboots of the three aforementioned films.
