I received the form to sign if I approve of Pulte’s plan for building on the land that had been reserved for a golf course and that now sits vacant. The plan looks decent and should please the surrounding homeowners, as much as anything is able to do so considering they paid a premium to live off of a golf course. I actually signed the form, but I’m not mailing it until I receive an answer “in writing” to a very important question.

On this 45th anniversary of the Stonewall riots, I was already pondering the place of the LBTGQ community in our society when the news broke of CNBC “outing” Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple Inc. It was a painful reminder that, despite significant gains in recent years, there is still a perception problem regarding people’s sexual orientation or self-identification.

The lakes at The Lakes are no more.
In the beginning there was dirt — and roads that were mere afterthoughts of other East Valley cities. For the most part, they didn’t lead to much of anywhere, as they dustily meandered west toward South Mountain.
Jordan is an adorable 8-year-old Jack Russell terrier who wins the hearts of everyone he comes in contact with, humans and canines alike. Jordan likes to be held and enjoys warming laps; add belly rubs to the mix and you will have one happy dog on your hands. He loves to play and if it involves tennis balls, he will play fetch for hours. Jordan loves being outside; he’ll stand facing the sun with the wind in his face. Walks are huge on his list, which isn’t a problem because he has impeccable leash manners and does great during car rides. You’d never know Jordan is deaf and probably has been for a long time, for it doesn’t stop him from enjoying each day to the fullest. This smart guy is doing great learning sign language — he’s already mastered sit, down and will come in from outside when you flick a light on and off. He is also house-trained. Jordan is the perfect package — a fun, affectionate, easygoing dog with a big personality. If interested in learning more about Jordan, please fill out an application at www.azrescue.org.

At first glance, Sheila Breen and Katharine Heffernan appear to have little in common.
Regarding the closure and Pulte Homes’ proposed development of The Lakes Golf Course, there is only one logical defense: Vote NO on any petition presented by Pulte Homes. If those of us living in the Ahwatukee Board of Management jurisdiction do not want an influx of new homes and the inevitable traffic, congestion, loss of open space and urban heat island effect that will ensue, we must not allow the protective CC&Rs to be changed, which is what Pulte needs to proceed. The company must have positive signatures from over half of the 5,100 homeowners in the ABM jurisdiction allowing these sensible Codes, Covenants and Restrictions to be changed.
