Commuters passing the intersection of Warner and Rural roads are now seeing red. But wait, this is all in the spirit of honoring an ancient church tradition. Ahwatukee high-schoolers, Cam and Morgan Henson, members of St. James Episcopal Church and Preschool, wanted to recapture the red door tradition and remind everyone of the history behind those red doors.

An anti-bullying allegory writ on the largest possible scale, "Ender's Game" frames an interstellar battle between mankind and pushy ant-like aliens, called Formics, in which Earth's fate hinges on a tiny group of military cadets, most of whom haven't even hit puberty yet.
