When you’re a parent of a small child, life can be filled with little moments of panic.
It starts with a name, those Ancestry.com commercials promise. That, and a paid subscription to the site. Not to mention the patience to sit hunched at a screen, following cybertrail after cybertrail ever deeper into a rabbit hole of genealogy information that’s difficult to know for sure is truly your own.
I once heard pastor and author Andy Stanley say that there are two simple, yet important questions for any organization to answer: “What business are we in?” and “How’s business?” His point: identifying what you’ve set out to do and evaluating the results is a great way to measure how much (or how little) you’re growing.
Pecos Senior Center’s new supervisor is no stranger to seniors and senior center programs.
Another young boy was offered a ride from a stranger near Pecos Road and 27th Avenue on Friday, Sept. 27, causing police to warn the public once more to be on alert.
On Aug. 10, I had the honor of leading more than 50 Pi Kappa Phi cyclists into the U.S. Capitol. The Journey of Hope this summer was the best experience of my life. Throughout the two and a half months, 13 states, and 4,000 miles, I learned a lot about myself and saw both the joy and the struggles of people living with disabilities.
Phoenix police are warning the Ahwatukee community to be on the alert after a man was seen trying to lure a young boy into his truck Tuesday afternoon.
Boulder City, Nev. -- It’s easy to trade the wild ways of Las Vegas for the wilds of the nearby Colorado River: All it takes is a call to a boating outfitter and a federally-approved form of ID.
I’ve seen it frequently. You know, the little tagline quotes in our email signature lines. This one is an old Irish proverb, “Work like you don’t need money. Love like you’ve never been hurt. And dance like no one’s watching.” Dance is not just a wonderful metaphor for life, but also for God. Many have described the relationship between God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit as a kind of cosmic dance. God’s very nature is relationship: loving, vital, dynamic, and life-giving. You can dance on your own, but it’s so much more fun when you dance with others.
A year ago when Ahwatukee Foothills resident Shayna Weitzman was hit on her bike by a drunk driver and left unable to use her arms and legs, she was told it would be years before she would be able to accomplish the very thing she’s training to do in just a few short months.
Wally is a small 1.5-year-old male Beagle. His colors are black and tan, kind of like a coonhound. He was hit by a car in January and was saved by some nice ladies who stopped to help him. His foster family has taken great care of him and helped him through four surgeries on his leg. Wally would love to be loved, but he’s a little skittish of strangers. He wants his own home where he can feel safe and get stronger every day.
Of all the movie villains we've met lately, few are stranger than Delacourt, Jodie Foster's evil, white-blonde, power-suited and power-hungry defense official in "Elysium," the much-awaited but ultimately somewhat disappointing new film from director Neill Blomkamp.
It’s easy to make these five mistakes with your dog:
On July 27, Ahwatukee Children’s Theater (ACT) will host National Dance Day, a grassroots initiative that encourages individuals, families, organizations and communities from across the nation to get up and move through dance.
When people ask me why I am running for the Phoenix City Council, my answer is very straightforward. I grew up here, ran a small business, and raised a child here. I understand on the most personal level what a terrific community Phoenix is and I want to see our city realize its true potential as one of our nation’s greatest cities, with excellent educational, cultural, and work opportunities.
It’s no secret: Arizona is no stranger to wildfires. The Doce Fire has burned more than 6,700 acres near Prescott — the state’s first major wildfire in what could be a rougher-than-normal wildfire season (Editor’s note: After receiving this the Yarnell Hill Fire happened near Prescott, killing 19 firefighters on June 30).
Voters may get the last word on a package of controversial changes to election laws — changes foes say are designed to depress turnout and throw roadblocks in the path of those who want to propose their own laws.
“Ordinary Grace,” by William Kent Krueger, is a touching coming-of-age novel set in the fictional town of New Bremen, “somewhere in the broad valley of the Minnesota River.” It is the summer of 1961, a time of innocence and hope for the country with a new young president. It’s the first year the Twins played in Minnesota, ice-cold root beers were enjoyed at Halderson’s drugstore soda fountain, and Hot Stuff comic books fill the magazine racks. For 13-year old Frank Drum it is a summer that becomes much more than a winning baseball season as his innocence is shattered due to a series of tragic events and deaths, including accidents, suicide and murder.
I, for one, am officially fed up with movies about zombie outbreaks, mutant outbreaks, virus outbreaks, and outbreaks in general. To be fair, the end of the world/global epidemic genre can still be done well. The best recent example actually wouldn’t be a movie, but “The Walking Dead: The Game,” which packed in more drama, thrills and heartfelt character development than the AMC TV show of the same name. Compelling characters and genuine terror is missing from “World War Z,” however. It’s surprisingly hollow, surprisingly bland, and, most unforgivable of all, surprisingly boring.
Here it comes again — that deep longing to go home. I usually get homesickness in faster rolling waves as the weather heats up in the desert, and I’m really looking forward to our trip to Wisconsin this summer.
History is one of our greatest teachers.
Romans 8:37-39 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
The adage “truth is stranger than fiction” is proven in “The Lost Wife,” by Alyson Richman. She has succeeded in blending both for an unforgettable reading experience.
If you watch the trailer for “Renoir” – a new period drama from French filmmaker Gilles Bourdos – a variety of adjectives are bound to come to mind: conventional, humdrum, lackluster. Sure, they’re trying to sell the story of one of the all-time great painters in a mere two minutes, but nothing about it grabs your attention – let alone, compels you to sit through the actual film. Luckily, this is not exactly the case for the movie itself, which is exquisite to look at but unfortunately devoid of any real insight into Pierre-Auguste Renoir. You come wishing to learn about the artist and his work, but instead leave dwelling on the film’s more engaging supporting characters.
