The holidays are here. If you have the financial resources to provide a comfortable life for your family, you have reason to be thankful. And if you can afford to share some of your “bounty” with charitable organizations, you may want to be as generous as possible — because your gifts may allow you to both give and receive.
By now, you’ve probably heard that Arizona, like other recovering states, is in short supply of new homes. While it’s true that inventory remains tight as builders push to keep up with rising consumer demand, plenty of options exist in the marketplace for people looking to purchase a new vs. a resale home.
Are you a member of the “Sandwich Generation?” This designation — which applies to people caring for their aging parents while supporting their own children — may be applicable to you if you’re either a younger baby boomer, born in the late 1950s or early 1960s, or an older member of “Generation X,” born in the mid-1960s. But any way you slice it, being in the “Sandwich” group is probably going to present you with some challenges, particularly of the financial kind — so you’ll need to make the right moves.
Even after three decades, the triple-dog dare doesn’t get old.
Looking for a little buddy to hang out with, go on walks, go to the Farmer’s Market, or just sit around and read the Ahwatukee Foothills News? Well, Chris is your guy! He is about the best little dog a person could want. He gets along well with other dogs, doesn’t mind little kids hanging all over him, and would possibly be OK with a feline sibling or two. Chris is a 5-year-old male Jack Russell Terrier mix who came to the Arizona Animal Welfare League because his owner fell on hard times and was unable to keep him any longer, not because of any other reason other than he no longer had a house to live in and wanted a better life for Chris than living on the streets. Chris is an absolute staff favorite and currently resides in the dog adoption manager’s office because she cannot bear to put him in a kennel because he’s just that perfect.
Every so often some researcher whips out his calculator and estimates how much it takes to raise a child today. I suspect that this exercise is some sort of subtle pressure from the government to cut down on overpopulation, because the Department of Agriculture says it costs a libido-crushing $241,080 to raise each of our Special Snowflakes to age 18.
Have Americans lost hope? The trust-deficit between them and their policymakers is distressingly large, with only 19 percent, according to an October Pew poll, who say that they have faith that the government will do what is right just about always or most of the time.
Black Friday used to be the one day where you could find bargain-basement deals on computers, TVs, game consoles, home goods, clothes, toys, and the list goes on.

Wesley Payne’s right ankle was taped, his gait was altered and the pain was persistent, but his mentality mirrored that of Mountain Pointe’s season.
Have you ever walked through a season in your life you thought might break you? I’m not talking about the everyday stuff. We’re each going to wrestle with our share of broken air conditioners in July, cranky bosses, and family feuds. I’m talking about soul crushing, heart wrenching times when getting through the days takes a herculean effort. When you can’t lift yourself out of the pit despite all of your coping resources – faith, friends, family, chocolate ice cream. And wine, in the name of truth telling.
Sony’s new SmartWatch 2 doesn’t get as much attention — and doesn’t do as much — as Samsung’s Galaxy Gear computerized wristwatch. But for the things it does, Sony’s version performs better.
Thanksgiving is almost here. If you have the financial resources to provide a comfortable life for your family, you have reason to be thankful. And if you can afford to share some of your “bounty” with charitable organizations, you may want to be as generous as possible — because your gifts may allow you to both give and receive.

Be it walking to a restaurant on a poorly lit street, or to a car in a dark parking garage, every woman who has found herself out alone at night has had the dark question flash through her mind — what if I were attacked?
The current struggle of wills regarding universal health care (Obamacare) and the debt ceiling has polarized our nation into those who believe in fiscal responsibility versus those who believe in unlimited spending. Conservatives vs. Socialists. Democrat and Republican appellations haven’t been used because there are conservatives and socialists in each party.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Every year about this time, millions of turkeys are fattened up so American households can chow them down. But in "Free Birds," two brave turkeys make it their mission to travel back in time and get their breed off the Thanksgiving menu.

Once again, the sun is shining on the housing market in Phoenix. Arizona is attractive once again to buyers with retirement, and a warmer climate, on the horizon. In 2012, domestic migration climbed high as it had been in the past five years as Arizona welcomed 26,000 migrants from other states. Across the state, as mortgage rates are decreasing and home values rising, the housing market is enjoying an influx as baby boomers choose our sunny skies. Even local retirees are opting to downsize, placing their current homes up for sale in favor of less maintenance.
