Sony’s new SmartWatch 2 doesn’t get as much attention — and doesn’t do as much — as Samsung’s Galaxy Gear computerized wristwatch. But for the things it does, Sony’s version performs better.
On the heels of Apple’s new, lighter iPad, Amazon has come out with a full-size tablet that weighs even less yet sports a sharper display and a lower price tag. Although Amazon’s Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 hasn’t received as much attention as the iPad Air, it is emerging as the strongest challenger yet to Apple’s device.
With tickets on sale Nov. 11, the countdown begins to the New Year’s Eve Block Party on Mill. After a one-year hiatus, the longtime East Valley bash is coming back with a bang and a dash of family-friendly programming.
The tone of the discussion at the Tempe Union High School District Governing Board meeting concerning the South Mountain Freeway was very different from the discussion two weeks earlier. At the Nov. 6 meeting, the board voted two in favor, one opposed and one abstaining from voting against the Loop 202 Freeway.
After plenty of haggling, and a fair amount of political theater, Congress reached a last-minute agreement to raise the debt ceiling and end the partial government shutdown. Most people would agree that a fully functioning government that can pay its bills on time is a positive thing — and it’s certainly good news for investors, because a default on the part of the U.S. government could have had serious repercussions in the financial markets. But what’s next?
It’s amazing to me how the Tempe Union and Kyrene school districts are so much like the federal government when it comes to operating within a budget. Has anyone noticed that?
A recent opinion was published in the AFN indicating that we at AZ PASS (Arizona People Acting for a Safer Society), a local grass-roots organization dedicated to reducing gun violence, have only “smoke and mirrors” behind our views.
My wife and I have lived in the Lakewood community in Ahwatukee for 18 1/2 years. When we moved here in 1995 we still had an 8-year-old daughter living with us. She entered third grade at Kyrene de los Lagos, completing fourth and fifth grades there. She went through sixth, seventh and eighth grades at Akimel and graduated from Desert Vista in 2004.
The Tempe Union High School District Governing Board is set to rewrite a weak resolution concerning the Loop 202 freeway extension and come out in full opposition of the project in November.
In Arizona, Jan. 1, 2014 marks a historic moment in health care choice. Obamacare, which takes effect then, includes a little noticed provision whose long-term impact is likely to be vast.
After a week of discussion, the Kyrene School District Governing Board unanimously approved its resolution against the South Mountain Loop 202 Freeway and Pecos Road alignment.
Barack Obama said this summer that he would be “happy to hear” any health care ideas that rivaled his beleaguered Obamacare, “but I haven’t heard any so far.”
A recent opinion regarding violence by John Chiazza (“Why does society ignore our grave gun disease,” AFN, Sept. 25) is not supported by data. Stricter gun laws will not reduce gun violence when many of the recent mass shootings are caused by individuals with mental illness and/or a broken family. He mentions nothing about addressing the mental health issues that are ever increasing in today’s society. Stricter gun laws don’t solve the root cause. Chicago, New York City, and California have the most stringent gun laws in the nation and just happen to also have the highest gun violence in the nation. People in Mexico are not permitted to own guns. How does that help prevent the gun violence by the drug cartels?
During Tuesday night’s meeting, Kyrene School District Governing Board members discussed the South Mountain Loop 202 Freeway extension.

My wife and I left Iowa some 20 years ago to see the world. We lived in France, Japan and the UK before returning to America last December. We settled our family in Ahwatukee so our children could be closer to their grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. But we are deeply troubled that something went very wrong in our country while we were away. We don’t want our kids to be gun violence victims.
On July 27, Ahwatukee Children’s Theater (ACT) will host National Dance Day, a grassroots initiative that encourages individuals, families, organizations and communities from across the nation to get up and move through dance.

Editor’s note: This is part five of a continuing summer series on the proposed South Mountain Loop 202 Freeway.
When I meet with clients who have a dispute with another individual or company, oftentimes my clients tell me to file a lawsuit believing that this is the only way for them to get what they are after: typically money and vindication that their position is correct. I always counsel my clients that litigation can be expensive and that there may be — though not always — a less expensive way to achieve their objective in a far quicker manner. Some of the less expensive ways of achieving the desired objective include mediation and arbitration.
Humanity's home planet hardly merits the name-check in "After Earth," M. Night Shyamalan's sci-fi survival tale whose shipwreck action could (with the exception of a scene where our hero scrawls a crude map over Lascaux-like cave paintings) take place on any old life-supporting globe in the cosmos. The disappointingly generic film, which strands a father and son (Will and Jaden Smith) on Earth a thousand years after a planet-wide evacuation, will leave genre audiences pining for the more Terra-centric conceits of "Oblivion," not to mention countless other future-set films that find novelty in making familiar surroundings threatening. Will Smith's presence, not just as co-star but as originator of the story, seems likely to carry box office receipts beyond the benchmark of Shyamalan's previous picture, the wretched "The Last Airbender," but those hoping for a franchise should navigate elsewhere.
