As you survey the political landscape, what do you see? Support for capitalism and liberty or an intransigent proclivity for control and political power? Intellectual pragmatism or crony capitalism? The truth of history or the lies of an imaginary future? The support of economic growth or the oppressive regulations of socialism?
Let the countdown begin! As of today, it’s officially T-minus (take 25, then subtract today’s date) days until Christmas. Are the stockings hung? Lights up? Christmas cards in the mail? Regardless if you’re prepared or not, the “most wonderful time of the year” is in full swing.
As we bid farewell to the 2013 football season; a crazy, cooky, memorable (for all the right and wrong reasons), let’s take a look at a few impact players.
I can’t imagine being a Child Protective Services (CPS) caseworker. But I can imagine why most of those men and women went into those jobs: an idealistic view that their work could make a difference in children’s lives, maybe save some kids from horrible fates, maybe find ways to change a dysfunctional family into a loving one.
GLENDALE - Mountain Pointe had a purpose when it got off the bus in Las Vegas three months ago.
There was only one little blip on the start to C.J. Cron’s career.
I am not suggesting for a moment that my extended family is weirder than any one else’s. I am also not suggesting that we are any less weird. Chances are pretty good that we fit under that 68.4 percent normal distribution bulge in the bell curve of weirdness. When it comes to religion, we are all over the place.
In America we hear a lot about stress. The hardships that America has gone under this century have shown an ever increasing amount of stress.
Somehow, someway it has already been 10 weeks since the Mountain Pointe football season started with a boom and bang.
With growing confusion and much deliberation about the overpowering messages regarding “racism” in recent publications of the AFN, I am compelled to summarize:
Did you know that one in four women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime? Domestic violence is an epidemic affecting women in every community, regardless of age, economic status, race, religion, nationality or educational background.
Kids are going to change our world for the better. We can count on it. As per my last column (“Next generations resetting our world,” Tribune, Sept. 15), I reported on the idea that as certain society systems collapse, the next generations will step forward and “reset” our trajectory. (See The Fourth Turning by historians William Strauss and Neil Howe.)
I read with interest Linda Turley-Hansen’s Guest Commentary of Sept. 6 (“Not racism, and not guns; it’s moral absence that’s doing the killing”), as well as the response it generated in your Sept. 15 edition (“Local African-American males speak out”).
Mr. Bryan Brinkley of Arizona People Acting for a Safer Society (AZ PASS) wrote a guest commentary in the AFN on Aug. 30, titled “Should guns be loved more than other people?” in which he seems to be offended that AFN published two rebuttals by a “loud minority in the community” to the stance that he and his organization represent.
Straight off his win in a vicious City Council race, Phoenix Councilman Sal DiCiccio promised the Ahwatukee Foothills Chamber of Commerce he’ll be focusing on ending pension spiking, promoting job creation, restoring city services, and providing more funding for domestic violence and homelessness in his next term.
Guns didn’t kill Christopher Lane and I’m not so sure genuine racism is to blame. Can minors fully understand such hate? We do know the teens who gunned down the athlete, who was jogging in Duncan, Okla., say they were “bored.”
Writing for the Ahwatukee Foothills News is not without its perks. For one thing, I get to use the phrase “my editor” in a casual, off-hand way as if my next stop is the Algonquin Round Table. And then there was the time I got recognized at the mall; Dad, Interrupted was surprised I could fit my head in the car after that one.
BASIS recently received high acclaim in education from author and TIME magazine journalist Amanda Ripley’s new book, “The Smartest Kids in the World (and how they got that way).”
The AFN has now published two rebuttals to a guest comment by AZ PASS Chair Ellen Davis following the Zimmerman verdict in Florida. Ms. Davis asked us if we wanted a society in which aggressive gun-toting people get to shoot the rest of us without a fear of legal consequence?
You’ve no doubt heard about the risks associated with investing. This investment carries this type of risk, while that investment carries another one. And it is certainly true that all investments do involve some form of risk. But what about not investing? Isn’t there some risk associated with that, too?
We all agree that education is one of the most important issues for our residents. It is crucial to the future development of our city, and the development of a competitive workforce.
The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) used its public comments on the Draft Environmental Impact Study (DEIS) of the South Mountain Loop 202 Freeway to ask the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) to conduct more tests and release more information to the community as a supplemental DEIS.
The second Pat Quinn Run is scheduled for Saturday at Desert Vista, 16440 S. 32nd St.
I am responding to the AFN Guest Commentary of July 19 by Ellen B. Davis, chair of People Acting for a Safer Society, Arizona entitled, “Do we want to live in a state where aggressive people are free to use guns?”
This year, the Valley has been experiencing a relentless and record-breaking heat wave due to a lingering high pressure system hanging over the West. With the summer still in full swing, warnings are being issued about the dangers of leaving children and pets in hot cars for any length of time.
