To answer Bill Richardson’s two main questions, “Do we keep Democrat Congresswoman Kyrsten Sinema to represent us or do we elect someone else?” And, “Are Rogers and Walter the best Republicans can come up with to challenge Sinema in CD 9?”
Today is Father’s Day and it made me realize (once again) how blessed I am to have the dads that I have, and how grateful I am to still have them! Their characters molded me, just like your dad’s molded you.
“He served with honor and distinction.” Those are the exact words that President Obama’s National Security Advisor Susan Rice said on National Television regarding recently released U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.
On Wednesday, in the Bass Pro Shops at the Mesa Riverview Shopping Center, the Phillips family gathered with distant relatives in a meeting room upstairs. They had been told that a family member had won a raffle — lunch, a shopping spree and the opportunity to meet an unspecified celebrity, perhaps a country music star.
I am a VOTING citizen of Phoenix. Cut police compensation? What are our council members thinking? Police and fire officers are the only ones left who really protect the citizens of this city. Certainly not the council members. The police and fire officers put their very lives on the line for us and are there to help no matter what help is needed. I realize the fire officers compensation has not been cut YET, but if the police cut happens, guess who is next? I will not be voting for any council member who voted for these cuts and will do everything I can to convince other voters to support our police at the ballot box.
It’s interesting to think how “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” has impacted every vampire-related movie/show to come out in the past decade, from the forbidden romance in “Twilight” to the topical humor of “True Blood.” Even something as unique as “Only Lovers Left Alive” can be traced back to “Buffy.” The film is a bit like the episode, “Conversations with Dead People,” which satirized independent movies with a supernatural twist. It wouldn’t be at all surprising if writer/director Jim Jarmusch saw this episode and decided to put his own spin on the concept. What Jarmusch delivers is a smart romance that always feels honest, despite the fact that the lovers are both vampires.
“Transcendence” is a movie all about questions. Not because the plot is overly complex or difficult to follow, but because it raises so many ethical dilemmas. Has technology gone too far? Will technology bring us into a new age of enlightenment or be our ultimate downfall? Could technology one day give a person the power of a god? Should a person have the power of a god, even if they can benefit mankind? Johnny Depp is doing a non-period piece where he doesn’t wear a ton of makeup or put on an accent?
It’s often called, “The greatest story ever told,” and it’s taken straight from the Bible in an annual production with a stage and cast of near biblical proportions, as befitting the story. The Easter Pageant of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is performed in the huge grassy bowl in front of the Visitor’s Center of the Mesa Arizona Temple, 525 East Main St. It never fails to be a moving, memorable and uplifting experience that brings people back year after year.
