Perhaps this is going to outdate thyself. It’s easy to live in the past and remember the olden days.
The team went 7-5. He sometimes held the ball too long in hopes of trying to make another circus play. He threw 12 interceptions, blah, blah, blah. Statistics are half of this story: 61 percent completions, 2,678 yards, 32 touchdowns and 12 INT; 767 yards rushing and 15 touchdowns. Pretty good. Now picture Marcos de Niza making the playoffs without Eckley, and, consequently, imagine the Padres if he didn’t play on one ankle for several weeks during the season. At 6-foot-2, 187 pounds, he still didn’t reportedly have a single college offer, but even more hard to believe would be that not changing real soon.
Neither Sen. Rafael (Ted) Cruz nor Sarah Palin are particularly good about details, but they need a basic history lesson regarding the World War II memorial. It’s true that this is “the peoples’ memorial” and that is because it was built with taxpayers’ funds. It has also been considered advisable that some provision be made to maintain the memorial, to wash off the pigeon flop and graffitti, and to fence the memorial to keep people like Rafael and Sarah from climbing on it for recreation. Rafael and Sarah believe in the “free lunch” philosophy and think that memorials build themselves and maintain themselves out of thin air. If Rafael and Sarah truly believe themselves, the memorial should have been built with private funds, and maintained with private funds also. Of course, that would mean that visitors would have to pay admission fees to visit the memorial, and it might not look so shiny if admission fees were inadequate, and it might close altogether if people lost interest in it. As a veteran, I find this repugnant.
“It’s that time of year when politicians everywhere live on a food stamp budget for a week and then whine and moan about how hard it was. Guess what? I am not on food stamps, but my family has less than that to spend on food. We eat healthy and do just fine. $29-$47 a week per person for food would be a luxury.”
The 2013 Arizona State Fair will open Oct. 11 for 18 days of rides, attractions, exhibits and — of course — food. Tickets for reserved seating at fair concerts go on sale Saturday, Sept. 7.
Every time I hear Sen. John McCain talking about border security I picture him strolling along the
Dobson athletic director Dr. Ray Perkins has been sweating most of this week (literally in the case of Thursday afternoon), and he’s fine with it.
Oh, those boring school days of old. Basic backpacks, plain pencil cases, spirals and staplers with so little snap they might as well have been destined for mom or dad’s office.

Let’s talk about the Trayvon Martin trial. Not the case itself, however.
The ancient Roman Circus Maximus is far distant on the map and on the calendar, but Mesa has its own circus of bargains: the Mesa Market Place Swap Meet.
Ashley Vargas lives for the looks of astonishment on her audience’s faces when she performs her nightly show.
Trainer Tabayara Maluenda works with tigers in Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey's "Built to Amaze" Circus.

A few observations from a columnist who, despite summer having officially begun just this past week, might have been out in the sun too long:

ORLANDO, Fla. — If there's ever been a summer to visit a theme park — or two, or three — this is it.
The same jury that convicted Jodi Arias of murder one week ago took less than three hours Wednesday to determine that the former waitress is eligible for the death penalty in the stabbing death of her one-time lover.
“Out of respect for the victims, I refuse to name, watch or listen to the accused, while the victim is six feet under, robbed of their precious lives! I began this promise, to victims, starting in 1995. I blackout all media that creates a rating circus, totally disrespecting the dead... sickening!”
The jury has rendered its verdict — Jodi Arias is guilty of first-degree murder — but the trial is far from finished.
