To be perfectly upfront, I’ve never been a huge Kevin Costner fan. That’s not to say he hasn’t been good in a few movies such as “Field of Dreams.” He’s even directed some great movies … well one great movie at least. Then in the late ‘90s, Costner seemed to go on a major ego trip, constantly casting himself as mankind’s savior in movies like “Waterworld” and “The Postman.” Now he’s riding the comeback train with effective work in “Hatfields & McCoys” and “Man of Steel.” “3 Days to Kill” is unfortunately a step backwards for Costner. It won’t kill his career again, but it certainly won’t help it either.

Spring is our busiest seasons in real estate. One of the top reasons is because parents often want to buy a new home and move after the kids are out of school and before they start the new school year. A question I hear often is, “How do I make this move easy on the kids?” Moving is stressful enough for adults, add in children who don’t understand the process, the reasons and all they know is it is going to be different, and it can make things a little more challenging. Here are some ways to relieve the stress, and dare I say, get them excited about the move.
PRESCOTT VALLEY – Dajour Reece has that knowing confidence that he will come through in the end.
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.
“Republicans are ticked because CVS drugstores will quit selling cigarettes because it conflicts with the primary purpose of a drugstore. Arizona legislative bodies want to repeal medicaid coverage on 134,000 people, leaving them only to die. Doesn’t that make the Arizona Legislature a death panel, and from what planet do their constituents hail?”
Aria Anderson risked years of misfortune when she opened her sock monkey umbrella inside her hospital room during a late morning in January. She did so to hide from the group of strangers who came to see her, and the strategy proved effective; her unfurled shield more than covered the slight 6-year-old’s frame.
The city of Phoenix offices will be closed Monday, Feb. 17 in observance of the Presidents Day holiday. Not all city services, however, will be affected.
Regarding “Drive with consideration on Pecos Road” by David Daggett (AFN, Feb. 12): AMEN, AMEN, AMEN! Daggett hits it right on the head. The south Phoenix Autobahn, otherwise known as Pecos Road, is full of people each morning who are on their way to events infinitely more important than the rest of us.
Sali is a super sweet, easygoing, 1-year-old Terrier/Dachshund mix with a smile that goes from ear to ear. A word of warning, her smile is contagious – you’ll soon find yourself smiling once in Sali’s presence! Sali’s favorite way to greet you is to employ the stop, flop, and roll maneuver with the full expectation that she will receive belly rubs. Sometimes, she’ll get in a few doggie kisses before she employs the maneuver. Sali loves laps and will sit in yours for hours. Sali also enjoys being held. Some of Sali’s other favorite activities include eating, car rides, and walks. Good thing she likes walks so much considering how fond she is of her food! Sali does well on a leash and is just now discovering the joy of toys!
It’s not often that I can say First Lady Michelle Obama and I run in the same circles, but this is OUR year! You may have noticed that recently, the First Lady celebrated her 50th birthday; she is a fellow 1964 birthday. Yes, I am admitting it, this year I will also be celebrating my 50th birthday — although a few months away yet.

There was a time when the Miller boys missed portions of the Super Bowl.
Becoming the best in your work is not an over-night occurrence; rather it can take years to hone your skills to be considered to be on top of the game.
Imagine hopping onto the back of da Vinci’s portrait of Mona Lisa and cruising it down the streets of France or saddling up New York’s Charging Bull and riding it into Times Square. Although piggy-backing a piece of artwork and parading it through public venues might sound like a looney fantasy, the art students of South Mountain High School have made it a reality.
The “Big D.” Over half of all marriages end in it. Surprisingly, even half of church-going people end up in divorce court. When I was growing up the “Big D” meant the Denver Broncos. I was a huge John Elway fan and enjoyed their great run of Super Bowl appearances and victories.
