As a registered Republican one of the biggest things that worries me about Republican gubernatorial candidate Doug Ducey is his climbing into political bed with Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Why would a guy seek out the support and endorsement form a sheriff who is under federal scrutiny and court ordered regulation, has been shown to be an ineffective sheriff who blew off hundreds of cases involving rapes and child molests, has cost the taxpayers of Maricopa County well over $100 million dollars in misspent jail tax funds, has 30,000 unserved felony arrest warrants in his files, has cost us tens of millions of dollars related to lawsuits stemming from prisoners being abused and killed in his jail and who spent the last decade alienating Hispanics on both sides of the border?
Cheerio, a Norwich Terrier Mix, is such a handsome and charming little man. This playful pup makes Don Juan look tame: he loves to give kisses and hugs. Cheerio can be shy at first, but once he warms up to you, he loves you. Cheerio likes to sit on your lap, enjoys sleeping in bed with you, loves belly rubs, and is more than OK with you picking him up to give him hugs and kisses. Cheerio’s friendly, easygoing and mellow nature applies to friendly animals, too.
In his hoop dancing and flute playing, Tony Duncan hears the nocturnal howls of the coyote as it mischievously darts from village to village searching for food, and he sees the twinkling of moonlight on river rocks and sees how that made the stars.
Paisley, a 5-year-old boxer/terrier and American pit bull mix, is very treat-motivated and would love to show off her tricks like sit and lay down. She walks really well on a leash. She loves squeaky toys, whether it’s playing with people or by herself.

It might come in a flash or happen over the course of the season, but by the end of the year, there are going to be a handful of football players from the Southeast Valley who are going to have breakout seasons in 2014.
While in the midst of a difficult season, like the one Desert Vista football went through in 2013, the focus is on that day.
Kermit was originally found as a stray and brought in to the Yuma Humane Society. He is estimated to be about 6 years old. The guess on what he is … Chihuahua mix? All that is known for sure is he’s absolutely adorable. Kermit needs a child-free home as he has a bit of sensitivity when being handled. Don’t let that scare you though … the volunteers that work with Kermit at the shelter can go over/explain what exactly that means. He is a very sweet boy. He is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and microchipped. Kermit’s adoption fee is $125.
Ahwatukee Foothills resident Scott Andersen went to take his Chihuahua, Einstein, on a walk in the evening of Tuesday, July 15, and within minutes of leaving the house, Einstein was dead, in the mouth of a much larger dog. Now Andersen is asking owners of all dogs to be aware of their dog’s instincts and be prepared for the worst.

After watching and reading about the state treasurer’s debate I thought to myself that with ex-Tempe Mayor Hugh Hallman’s line of “bull” he should be selling used cars. http://www.azcentral.com/story/news/politics/2014/07/08/treasurer-candidates-get-loud-debate/12393627/.
In many areas of your life, you’re probably aware that it’s useful to keep emotions out of your decision-making — and that’s certainly the case with investing. However, it can be difficult to keep your feelings from influencing your investment decisions. But you may find it easier to invest with your head, rather than your heart, if you know a little something about two different cycles: the market cycle and your emotional cycle.

The Junior Golf Association of Arizona (JGAA) is taking its game to another level. Under the leadership of Executive Director Scott McNevin, the JGAA announces its new board of directors to continue the forward momentum of the organization.
Duke, a 4-year-old Terrier/American Pit Bull mix, loves tennis balls and playing fetch. He is very sweet and affectionate. Duke is great with kids of all ages and other dogs, too. He is neutered and up to date on all his shots. His adoption fee is $135.
There are tremendous responsibilities and potential liabilities that come with owning a dog. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports there are approximately 4.7 million dog bites per year, resulting in 800,000 injuries that require medical attention. Half of those injuries are to people under the age of 18.
Gov. Jan Brewer has established by Executive Order the Arizona Human Trafficking Council, addressing one of the key priorities highlighted in the governor’s 2014 State of the State and policy agenda.
Who’ll stop the Scottsdale schools?
One of the best things about spring training is getting a chance to see prospects long before they reach the big leagues.
The following Tempe Union High School District students have advanced to the finalist level for the prestigious National Merit Scholarship.
Gabbana, like her name suggests, is a special and limited edition pup worthy of lots of love and affection. She’s very smart and already know “sit, “down,” “stay” and “come” commands. She loves to learn new things and has great focus for further training. Gabbana loves to play fetch, tug-of-war, and would do well with a semi-active family who would like to run and play with her.
Imagine hopping onto the back of da Vinci’s portrait of Mona Lisa and cruising it down the streets of France or saddling up New York’s Charging Bull and riding it into Times Square. Although piggy-backing a piece of artwork and parading it through public venues might sound like a looney fantasy, the art students of South Mountain High School have made it a reality.
