It’s a fact, when it comes to buying or selling any house the kitchen gets the No. 1 scrutiny and can make or break the sale. It is the most used space in the house and has the most expensive components concentrated in one spot. The kitchen has been the most evolved room in the house and does not look nor function the same as yesterday’s kitchen.

I think I am not alone in growing so tired of Don Kennedy’s “rants” in the AFN. Surely there has to be a more productive and community-embraceable dialog than his extreme “right-wing” discourse and that of the opposing Nancy Pelosi-ish left. The best thing for our country is for those of us in the moderate middle to take back the discussion and elect public servants who will serve the interest of the vast (and too-often silent) majority of our citizens.

There will be visits from family, friends and visitors descending on many households for a few days, a week, or even longer. They can enjoy such things as golf tournaments, sports events, car auctions, horse shows, charity balls, concerts and all kinds of cultural entertainments. Is your home ready to entertain guests for the evening, a few days or for a special event?
Saying the money was withheld illegally, Arizona schools asked a judge on Tuesday to force the Legislature to restore at least $330 million state aid — what it should have been had the governor and lawmakers not ignored the law in the first place.
Saying it's the best that can be done, Gov. Jan Brewer proposed a nearly $9.4 billion spending plan for the coming fiscal year.

There’s something about the beginning of a new year that makes us feel like we have a new lease on life.

Sen. Patty Murray is an unashamed spender and taxer. She’s never seen a government outlay she didn’t like and she was in high spirits over the “bipartisan” budget deal she crafted with Republican Rep. Paul Ryan. The deal helps “bring some respect to the word compromise,” she crowed.
This month we will discuss how there is no such thing as failure. Actually, we will discuss that the secret to success is failure. That is a pretty hard point to understand, but it is true. The founder of IBM (Thomas Watson) actually said it best, “The secret to success is to double your rate of failure.” Now when was the last time someone told you that? Let’s be clear about this concept. We are not saying that it is great to continue to fail. We all try to avoid failure at all cost. We are saying that you must continue to keep trying and LEARN from those failures and not give up. Eventually you will succeed.
The City of Phoenix’s bond rating was reduced last week from AAA to AA+ with a stable outlook.

Mr. Don Kennedy, your entire letter is not just inaccurate (“Operate within budget instead of asking for bond override,” AFN, Oct. 9), it’s very premise for opposing the request of the district doesn’t even exist. Tempe Union is not requesting a bond. There is no tax increase. There is no debt in this request. There are no additional dollars going in to the budget. I realize this makes this response brutally short and lacking great debate. None of what you said is true. So since we are supporting the very action you seem to call for, to endorse a CONTINUATION of the EXISTING spending authority WITHOUT a tax increase for a school district that has, by far, the LOWEST tax rates in Maricopa County, I would hope that the wonderful services provided by this district has now earned your vote.
