With the new year now in full swing, the Gilbert Chamber of Commerce continues to work to identify the programs and services that can best serve our business community. Like most businesses, we move steadily forward in pursuit of our goals.
On March 3, our community and country will celebrate a unique birthday. On that date in 1931, President Herbert Hoover signed Public Law 823 that established the Star Spangled Banner as our National Anthem. At its national convention in Salt Lake City, the American Legion went on record supporting the birthday of this special music with a national day of observance.
Garden centers, with their vast collections of plant colors, sizes and shapes, can be intimidating to inexperienced buyers. But you can become a discerning purchaser with a little homework and by quizzing the sales people as you shop.

I’m often surprised at the frequency in which I hear a Christian bring up Karma. As applied, Karma is the great balancer in the universe to right all wrongs and keep each successive day moving along as it should. It might be a warning to a person that a momentary bad deed will come back to haunt them, or an encouragement to a person wronged that retribution is on its way. Spend a few moments sitting at your local coffee shop and you’ll overhear hints of this in the conversations all around you. Whether we profess faith in Jesus or not, most of us live with a deep need for fairness in our daily lives. It’s what makes our world tick.

When it comes to estate planning, procrastinating is easy. The task of getting your house in order can seem daunting and the topic uncomfortable. In fact, while the majority of Americans believe that all adults should have an estate plan, only 44 percent have actually created one, according to a 2011 LexisNexis survey.
There’s something very powerful, profound, and cathartic about the 40 days of Lent. Even at times in my life when I felt alienated from the body of Christ, wanted nothing to do with “organized” religion, or pushed faithful living to the edges of my being, Lent has always been important in my life. On Ash Wednesday (March 5 this year), the church calls us all to the observance of a holy Lent. It’s a strange and compelling invitation.
Once upon a time, nearly everyone had to wait their turn.
I found out Feb. 11 that since April 2013, Medicare granted itself a 2 percent discount from doctors and medical providers with a contract with Medicare. They then sent AARP United Healthcare a form with the full payment so my supplemental insurance also did not pay the 2 percent. Meanwhile, the discrepancy had a note that local state and federal law required an adjustment.
Markus Howard, Perry, Guard: He’s been the cream of this freshman crop. It’s not simply his burgeoning talent, maturity, the early makings of a goatee, or willingness to make the big plays at crunch time that vaults the freshman guard to Player of the Year candidacy. To Markus, it’s also about being part of a family in which his older brother, senior Jordan Howard, scores nearly 10 points per game fewer than last season (25.6 to 16.4) and has deferred to his younger brother while taking on a different role. It’s worked, as the Howard brothers led the Pumas to the No. 4 seed and nearly knocked off No. 1 Corona del Sol in the Super Sectional final. Markus has won multiple games this season on last-second shots, but he also defers: “He’s pushed me since I was little, and he has a 4.5 GPA so there’s even competition to get better grades,” Markus said of Jordan. “His knowledge of the game and the way he approaches the seriousness of life. He lets me know what I do right and wrong. I’m my toughest critic but he does tell me a lot, and for the most part I hear them out.” While Barcello claimed to have heard opposing fans’ “freshman” chants once this season, Markus said he wouldn’t know because he doesn’t hear background noise, except the side effect after his older brother beats him 1-on-1.Well-spoken and polished, Markus’ NBA aspirations aren’t a secret, but he knows one person never makes a team. “I’m around a good group of guys who trust me and it’s been a great opportunity for me to be in,” Markus said. “I’m just getting started.”
