HERE: Foothills Women’s Club Pajama Party
Just about a 10 minute ride west of Page sits one of the most elegant resorts in the Southwest. You just don’t know about it. There are no billboards, no splashy advertising in the local press. Even if you knew about the place, it’s still hard to find.
The next time you visit a Maricopa County park, you may find some of the critters you spot on the playground are larger than life. That’s because five 20-year-old play areas have gotten upgrades that include giant structures based on desert animals like rattlesnakes and mountain lions.

Arizona has enjoyed a slow, steady rise to track prominence nationwide. Much of that rise was aided by the Chandler girls program, which won two Nike Team National titles, and individuals like Billy Orman, Devon Allen and Bernie Montoya.
One of the many surprises in Wes Anderson's rich, layered and quirkily entertaining new film, "The Grand Budapest Hotel," is the emergence of a new comic actor, one with impeccable timing and just the right mix of gravitas and utter zaniness.

Eating well can be hard to do — but not because of a lack of options. Farmers markets make finding fresh-picked produce (and a variety of locally made specialty foods and products, like hummus and bath soaps) convenient in and around the East Valley.
Garden centers, with their vast collections of plant colors, sizes and shapes, can be intimidating to inexperienced buyers. But you can become a discerning purchaser with a little homework and by quizzing the sales people as you shop.
“To the naive venter that thinks Walmart can afford to pay $10.10/hour since ‘the four Waltons have $33 billion each’: Honey, they aren’t going to use their money to fund the pay increase, they’ll get it from us via higher prices.”
TEMPE – This time Desert Vista kept the throttle down.
Once upon a time, nearly everyone had to wait their turn.
Once upon a time, nearly everyone had to wait their turn. In high school sports, it often meant a freshman or sophomore watched while juniors and seniors took to the field, floor or court; kids who’d been in a given athletic program for a few years, and, thus, “earned” their playing time. That’s not often the case anymore for several reasons, but it’s not necessarily a bad thing. It could be a testament to how talented and deep Arizona’s high school basketball pool has filled out: Five out of more than a half-dozen kids from across the East Valley have not only earned roster spots and playing time on elite programs, but, in many cases, are essential pieces to potential championship puzzles during the 2013-2014 state tournaments. There are many more youngsters who were key contributors for teams who, unfortunately, were left out of the playoff picture, and more are coming up the ranks. But it takes a lot to crack the rotation as a freshman on some of the state’s best teams. Namely, it means not playing like a freshman.
It’s a fact, when it comes to buying or selling any house the kitchen gets the No. 1 scrutiny and can make or break the sale. It is the most used space in the house and has the most expensive components concentrated in one spot. The kitchen has been the most evolved room in the house and does not look nor function the same as yesterday’s kitchen.

It’s hard to believe that almost 55 years has elapsed since The Osmonds started as a barbershop quartet in Ogden, Utah. More than a half-century and 100 million records later, they are one of the most legendary families of the entertainment industry.
Higley Unified School District has a variety of events happening at its schools next week.
In a team-based Bowl competition at the National History Bee and Bowl at Mesquite High in Gilbert, Desert Vista A and Scottsdale Prep came in first and second, respectively, after a final game. Desert Vista, a regular at academic competitions, regularly tops the charts while Scottsdale Prep, a team composed of ninth- and 10th-graders (compared to the 11th- and 12th-graders of DV), also consistently perform well. Coming in third place overall was Mesquite A, and in fourth place cinching the last Nationals qualification spot was Desert Vista B.
NEW YORK — When people take an interest in cooking, broth sales apparently get a bump.
Aria Anderson risked years of misfortune when she opened her sock monkey umbrella inside her hospital room during a late morning in January. She did so to hide from the group of strangers who came to see her, and the strategy proved effective; her unfurled shield more than covered the slight 6-year-old’s frame.
Arizona taxpayers may spend $30 million to do little more than find out how good – or bad – a job the federal government does in securing the border.
