And in 2007, we made modest improvements to our state’s graduated driver license (GDL) law, providing a safer learning environment for young drivers by minimizing passenger distractions and nighttime driving risks.
When you think of the 1980s movie “Top Gun,” it’s easy to picture Tom Cruise wearing aviators and looking ever so handsome in his uniform.

The little mining town of Superior — about 50 miles from the East Valley on U.S. Highway 60 — hosts its annual Prickly Pear Festival this weekend, celebrating all the drinks, desserts and dishes you can make from the spiny cactus. If a jaunt into the mountains isn’t in the cards, here’s where you can taste the cactus closer to home (and, no, margaritas — the easiest prickly pear-flavored concoction to find in the Valley — didn’t make the list).
