It’s 2012 all over again. Through last-second football bracket seeding shifts, a downpour or two and three extra days of waiting, the 2013 football season will end as last season did:
This year has been a great one for my friends who are royal headline watchers. Who doesn’t love to hear about the arrival of a healthy baby? Many of the stories were similar to what we would have heard 20 years ago, but one in particular was both modern and interesting.
Once again, the sun is shining on the housing market in Phoenix. Arizona is attractive once again to buyers with retirement, and a warmer climate, on the horizon. In 2012, domestic migration climbed high as it had been in the past five years as Arizona welcomed 26,000 migrants from other states.

Even local retirees are opting to downsize, placing their current homes up for sale in favor of less maintenance.
The honors that follow being the the top-ranked team in the state are starting to roll in for Mountain Pointe.

The cooler fall temperatures are here at last. Summer vacation time is lingering in the corners of our minds. Our children and grandchildren are back in school. The winter visitors are beginning to arrive. The traffic volume is heavier. The stores are gearing up for the upcoming fall festivals and winter holidays. Many of us are beginning to feel like we’re stuck in the “I Love Lucy” candy factory episode on a speeding conveyer belt, hurtling along and out of control. There’s so much busy packed into our days that we’re in danger of forgetting that the origin of holiday is holy day.
