Denial’s worked pretty well for me so far. But as I type with trembling fingers, reality is seeping in. Just after Christmas, my family is moving. To Seattle. I know. From sunshine to rain. But then, change is as inevitable as the lights that twinkle along Chandler Boulevard during the holidays each year. And so, I have to embrace one more in a long lifetime of transitions.
A true story made headlines Nov. 4. A trove of approximately 1,500 works of art confiscated by the Nazis in World War II were seized in a Munich apartment. The value was estimated to be $1.3 billion by artists such as Picasso, Matisse and Chagall. The news goes on to say that determining the rightful owners of the works decades after they were either sold under duress or seized could take years.

I am a 22-year resident of Ahwatukee, a senior citizen who has never had a child attend the schools in Ahwatukee, and a strong supporter of the upcoming override elections. The future of our country, our state and our local community depends on a quality public education system. Our youth depends on local citizens to fulfill their civic responsibility, just as we relied on community citizens to support our education in the past. Property values are enhanced in communities where school districts have reputations that attract parents who participate in their children’s education.

Robert Rodriguez's "Machete Kills" is a sequel based on an end-credits joke from a film that was itself based on a joke trailer contained within a half-joke grindhouse homage. Exactly how many degrees such an endeavor is removed from anything resembling serious cinema would require Jean Baudrillard to calculate, yet for more immediate filmgoing purposes, all there is to see here is a surprisingly long-lived gag finally running out of gas. As violent as its predecessor yet noticeably duller and less outrageous, "Machete Kills" is dragged to the finish line entirely by its director's madcap energy and an absurd cast of major stars in strange cameos.

Avid Southwest gardeners see August as a time to enjoy the beauty of summer annuals, the bounty of a summer garden harvest, and the shade of the early morning or late afternoon. Southwest gardeners also mark August as the traditional beginning of the fall vegetable garden. Some fall vegetables should be planted by seed as early as mid-August: squashes like acorn, butternut and Hubbard; zucchini; melons like “Crenshaw,” honeydew, and casaba; fall sweet corn; tomatoes; peppers; and green beans. And September marks the beginning of the fall vegetable planting season — the most abundant season in desert gardening. So, preparing the garden’s soil is on every vegetable grower’s August checklist.

Each fall, after crossing the hurdle of back-to-school fever, parents of high school juniors and seniors have the added burden of facing the confusing college application process.
