Shame on SCOTUS. Its recent 5-4 ruling to allow the owners of Hobby Lobby and other closely held, for-profit enterprises to deny certain types of reproductive health care to its women employees moves society backwards.

The Ahwatukee-based group fighting against the South Mountain Loop 202 Freeway is not settling down now that the comment period is over on the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) for the freeway. They’re gearing up with more events and informational meetings hoping to bring more awareness to people in Ahwatukee to the problems the freeway presents.
For years, the Maricopa Association of Governments (MAG) and the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) have been spouting a story of how the South Mountain Freeway (SMF) will save our Valley from traffic congestion and air pollution.

When trying to make one universal statement about memory, one aspect comes to mind. Our memories and the brain structures that support memory are plastic, which means that memory expands and contracts over time and types of stimulation. That statement is true whether you are a child, adolescent, adult, or senior. Obviously the capacity tends towards enhancement when we are young and starts to decline around 50. We then begin to notice the loss of instantaneous recall. This may be especially true for names, titles, and places.
While a few Ahwatukee residents have strong opinions about the South Mountain Freeway (SMF) Loop 202, one way or the other, a majority are totally ambivalent about the road.

Most of us have been paying an increased sales tax for transportation projects since 1985 and any tangible evidence of our money at work is gratifying. Since very little of Ahwatukee is south of Chandler Boulevard, the impact on most of us will be marginal.
