The holiday season is synonymous with tradition. But that doesn’t mean you have to fill your home with the same holiday decorations in the same color scheme every year.
Christmas is right around the corner and Lamb of God Lutheran Church in Ahwatukee will put together its annual live nativity scene to further the holiday spirit for the entire Ahwatukee Foothills community.
As the holidays are quickly approaching, many people may be getting ready to take to the skies and roads to celebrate with family and friends. While some travelers may prefer to bunk with family during the holidays, others seek the privacy and roominess of hotel accommodations.

In my monthly book club group we open the discussion with just a word and a number — how much we enjoyed the book on a scale of 1-10 and one word that best describes it for us.
An anti-bullying allegory writ on the largest possible scale, "Ender's Game" frames an interstellar battle between mankind and pushy ant-like aliens, called Formics, in which Earth's fate hinges on a tiny group of military cadets, most of whom haven't even hit puberty yet. At face value, the film presents an electrifying star-wars scenario — that rare case where an epic space battle transpires entirely within the span of two hours — while at the same time managing to deliver a higher pedagogical message about tolerance, empathy and coping under pressure. Against considerable odds, this risky-sounding Orson Scott Card adaptation actually works, as director Gavin Hood pulls off the sort of teen-targeted franchise starter Summit was hoping for.
We all know that the Star Trek mission is “to explore strange new worlds” and “seek out new life and new civilizations,” so it’s only logical that the Starship Enterprise would eventually end up at the Arizona State Fair.

Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre fans, you can finally put the question to rest: No, the Broadway Palm is not coming back.
A story like that at the heart of "Runner Runner," about a young American gambler who gets sucked way above his head into the criminal doings of a big-time offshore operator, would have found its ideal life as a tough, punchy, black-and-white programmer back in the 1950s. Today, it would have been most viable as a grandiose character study done on an operatic scale by a filmmaker like Martin Scorsese or Michael Mann. What's actually up onscreen in this vaguely ambitious but tawdry melodrama falls into an in-between no man's land that endows it with no distinction whatsoever, a work lacking both style and insight into the netherworld it seeks to reveal. Despite an intriguing setup and Ben Affleck and Justin Timberlake heading the cast, this Fox release holds a losing box-office hand.
The Kings of Leon are having a great time. Problem is, no one really believes them.
In today’s electronic generation, most kids show more concerns toward their electronics than getting some physical activity in their daily lives.
If you lived in a comfortable home in 17th century France or 19th century England, your chairs might well have been embellished with nail-head trim. It was a clever, decorative way for craftsmen to secure materials to upholstered furniture.

The Banzai Physical Challenge is a fun-filled, yet technical obstacle course created specifically for families to test their physical limits and tolerance for getting muddy. Never fear, a rinse off station will be provided.
In 2006, the Hamilton football program began a trend of venturing out from Arizona to play some of the nation’s premier teams. The Huskies have acquitted themselves well in these high-profile matchups, winning several and staying competitive in the losses, proving they deserve mention among the country’s top programs.
Is Morgan Spurlock selling out?
