Who is afraid of the big, bad wolf? Certainly not East Valley Tribune readers, who voted Chandler High School’s wolf as the best school mascot for the second consecutive year.
Having Wolves as a mascot is hardly unique. According to the website highschoolnicknames.homestead.com, Wolves are the 29th-most common selection among high schools nationally. Even two other high schools in Arizona — Desert Mountain High School in Scottsdale and Estrella Foothills High School in Goodyear — share the nickname of Canis lupus.
But Chandler High School can claim something its state brethren lack: longevity. Established in 1914, Chandler High has existed in some form for an entire century.
Chandler High’s student body has done its part to uphold the proud Wolves name. According to the school’s website, Chandler High has produced 50 National Merit Scholarship semifinalists in the past six years and the school recently received an “A” grade from the Arizona Department of Education.
In sports, the Wolves football team, led by Bryce Perkins and Chase Lucas, is one of the best Division I squads in Arizona and is expected to contend for a state championship this season.
So perhaps the only people who should fear the big, bad wolf — affectionately named “Scruffy” at Chandler High — is anyone who doubts the students, faculty, staff and alumni of the Chandler High School Wolves.

Bailey is a beautiful 1-year-old gal with bunny-like fur and a very loud purr. If you walk into a room and see her lying on her back with all four paws in the air, it’s her subtle way to solicit belly rubs. Bailey is very friendly — once she is standing upright again, she’ll rub against you in greeting with the hope of soliciting more petting. Bailey is content to sit next to you but isn’t above taking advantage of an empty lap either. She allows you to hold her like a baby and will not only give you sweet kitty-kisses of thanks — she’s been known to throw in some nose kisses as well.

My youngest son started middle school this year. On the first day of classes, climbing on the bus with all his No. 2 pencils and three-ring binders, he also carried with them enough anxiety to fill a mama’s boy’s backpack. It wasn’t just the reality of a new school that put them on edge; it was middle school, and that is scary enough all on its own.

The meaning of Ike’s name is “he will laugh” or “laughter,” which perfectly describes this handsome, charming and friendly 1-year-old dalmatian mix. Ike wears a permanent smile on his face and always looks like he has just told the best joke ever and can’t stop laughing! He is a sweet, happy, energetic dog who loves to interact with people, greeting everyone with a wagging tail, a wiggling body, a few kisses, and of course, a big smile.
More than a century ago Leo Tolstoy wrote about a greedy farmer in his tale, “How Much Land Does a Man Need?” This farmer was discontent with his life because he never seemed to have enough. He moved town to town looking for greener pastures and greater opportunity. On his journeys he heard rumors of a far-away place where a distant tribe possessed more land than anyone could walk over in a year; and it was all there for the taking. He went to investigate and found the rumors to be true. The farmer met with the tribal chief who informed him that he could in fact have all the land he wanted.

A friend who has some experience with rodeo horses sent me a most picturesque proverb: “Let go or be dragged.” Whether this phrase was first spoken by a Zen master who had achieved enlightenment on the mountainside, or by a battered cowboy nursing his shattered bones and pulling cacti from his backside makes no difference. It is the unmistakable truth.
Peyton, 1, is not only awesome because of his symmetrical face mask (orange muzzle with a white outline); but because of his incredible purrsonality — a purrfect mix between snuggly and silly. Peyton adores people and is only too happy to spend time with them. When he climbs into your lap, Peyton is most likely planning on being there for a long time. He loves chin and head rubs as well as belly rubs. Peyton likes being held and not only hopes for but has come to expect kisses while in this position. He is also quite conversational asking about your day and telling you about his.
