“Oh, What a Night” was had Wednesday, July 23, by the enthusiastic ASU Gammage audience reveling in the musical magic of “Jersey Boys” — the Tony Award-winning story of four blue-collar kids who became the 1960s chart-topping The Four Seasons. In just two and a half hours (including a 15-minute intermission), the talented 21-member cast transforms Klara Zieglerova’s simple, fluid, multilayered set into the sinister back streets of New Jersey townships, the smoky interiors of no-name bars, and the brilliant television stage of “The Ed Sullivan Show.”

My wife keeps a checklist of all the national parks she’s visited, but there was one glaring hole in her explorations, Arizona’s own Petrified Forest. So, to close the gap, we decided to spend a few nights at the wonderful La Posada resort in Winslow and spend a day at the park. It was such a good day I can’t believe we’ve never done it before.

The lower Salt River in the Tonto National Forest on Wednesday, May 21, 2014.
It’s always been my personal opinion that Walt Disney’s 1959 “Sleeping Beauty” should have been titled, “Maleficent.” After all, she gets more screen time than Princess Aurora, she’s a more interesting character, and she’s the one you want to dress up as for Halloween. So why does Sleeping Blandness get the title role? It’s nice to see Maleficent finally get top billing in a movie after all these years, even if the movie itself is only so-so.

PICACHO PEAK STATE PARK — "Excuse me, coming through, sorry, thank you!" I kept repeating loudly and urgently as I hiked up Picacho Peak, which rises like a Western saddle from the endless desert just off I-10 between Phoenix and Tucson.
As an Arizona native, I have a love for the desert that just comes naturally. But there is something inside of me that loves greenery, water, colorful flowers and shade.

An investigation into allegations a Gilbert Fire Department chief misused his leave time is expected to end later this month.
