The Rev. Ralph M. Worden died on Nov. 11 in Phoenix. He and his wife were the first residents to move into the Mountain Park Senior Living Community complex in Ahwatukee.
Facing a splintered gay-rights community, supporters of legalizing same-sex weddings in Arizona have pulled the plug on putting the issue to voters next year.
A new statewide survey suggests that if Arizonans were asked about it today, it's more likely that gay couples would be able to marry here.
The highly anticipated opening of Chick-fil-A in Ahwatukee Foothills, at 5035 E. Ray Road, has been postponed after the death of franchise owner and operator Ted Christy.

The fight playing out today at the U.S. Supreme Court could impact an Arizona case the high court has not yet decided whether to hear.
A lot of people like to make predictions on what is going to happen. Too few of us take responsibility for their successes and, yes, their failures. Here is what I forecast on December 23, 2011 followed by what actually happened and my report card:
Arizona will have to continue providing benefits to the domestic partners of its gay state and university employees, at least for the time being.
Arizona State University will become a tobacco-free campus beginning next summer, but in protest and to raise awareness of the ban, a student-led group passed out cigarettes to students on the Tempe campus Wednesday.
In her Sept. 5 (Spiritual Side) column (“‘Coming out’ for marriage equality — a letter of thanks”) Diane Meehl proclaimed her support for legal and church marriages between persons other than one man and one woman. Meehl urged Christian churches to follow suit, saying “does the church want to continue to be associated with a divisive issue about which we likely will never achieve consensus?” There are many “divisive issues” — including the divinity of Christ and the message of salvation — on which the church must take an unwavering position on principle, not on the nose count of a supposed “consensus.”
Dear Pastor Steve (Hammer),
Two organizations that promote "family values'' and nearly a dozen other states are urging the U.S. Supreme Court to let Arizona deny health care and other benefits to the domestic partners of its gay employees.
June has proven to be a strong month for the Obama campaign. The president’s support for same-sex marriage, his executive order on immigration reform and the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold Obamacare has put Team Romney on the defense as evidenced by Romney’s “flip-flop” on whether the individual mandate in Obamacare is a penalty or a tax.
One of Gov. Jan Brewer's appointees to the Tourism Advisory Council quit Tuesday to protest her decision to strip benefits from the domestic partners of gay state and university employees.
I am disappointed that President Obama has become the first U.S. president to “come out” in support of same-sex marriage. Even more disturbing is his pointing to his Christian faith as a motivation for his position. This is to mock Christianity for the Bible clearly and unequivocally condemns homosexual acts. The Golden Rule does not sanction the approval of any kind of moral evil.
Wow ... did you hear the president's voice recently when he sang the first lines of "Let's Stay Together" by Al Green? This is one cool dude. In addition to being the "Leader of the Free World" and the "Commander in Chief" of the United States of America, he can also sing, not to mention his hoops skills. How do ya think Jennifer, Randy and Steven would judge the prez if he stepped out on the stage in the first round. I'm thinkin' that he's goin' to Hollywood!
A federal court ruling Tuesday overturning California's ban on gay marriage could provide the legal fodder to overturn a similar voter-approved constitutional amendment here.
Two top state officials are asking the full 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to let Arizona deny benefits to the domestic partners of its gay state and university employees.
Arizona cannot cancel the insurance benefits for the domestic partners of state and university workers who are gay, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday.
