Rarely has a story about an angelic schoolgirl been narrated by Death. But such is the case in the dark, yet wondrous Nazi Germany-set "The Book Thief."

Over the past 25 years, the ANASAZI Foundation, a nonprofit organization based in Mesa, has helped teenagers to “find their way in the world” through a wilderness experience program and what they call a new way of “walking.”
Paul Ryan, U. S. Representative, Chairman of the House Budget Committee and former vice-presidential candidate, recently declared that the federal war on poverty “has failed miserably.” No one argues. During the fifty years since President Lyndon Johnson first promised to end poverty, the United States has wasted $15 trillion; 46 million Americans live in poverty and 15 million more receive food stamps than before the 2007 recession started.

In the course of human events it is necessary, now and again, to reaffirm some of the thoughts and principles we have lost sight of.
