Though far from the only necessary criteria being sought by Corona del Sol in hiring its next football coach, it was clear being "one of us" in having ties to the school and program was beneficial.
I don’t care much for what is called "reality TV." Like the propaganda Michael Moore disguises as documentaries, reality shows are selective in their reality, and in being so, manipulate their viewers. Of course, many viewers are clearly aware of this, but still watch avidly, either to laugh at or laugh with the characters.
Community service is part of the culture and a requirement at Seton Catholic High School, but Claire Evans took such service to another level this year.

“Inside Llewyn Davis” is a new kind of project for the Coen brothers to take on. To an extent, the film is a musical of sorts along the lines of “Once.” In addition to being a love letter to old folk songs, it’s also one of the most brutally honest, if not disheartening, movies about the cruel nature of show business. While different territory for the masterful directing duo, “Inside Llewyn Davis” still has the Coen’s distinctive signature all over it. As with many of their films, they find the comedy in bleakness and the bleakness in comedy, resulting in a narrative that’s either saying a lot or saying nothing at all. However you view it, boy is it fascinating to watch.
More than 50 local artists, musicians and entertainers light up downtown Chandler during this monthly event, which also provides a reason for downtown shops to stay open late.

For most scribes who have toiled in the movie industry, portraying Hollywood as a healing paradise is roughly equivalent to regaling a lobster of the soothing properties of a boiling pot of water.

It’s no secret that men like Keith Richards, John Lennon and Frank Sinatra are the first to be mentioned when talking about the evolution of music. But what about women like Joan Jett and Tina Turner, who are equally responsible for putting rock and roll on the map?

Santa got lost one Christmas day
Strumming a guitar, decked in high heels and a homemade fringe dress, Wanda Jackson had no idea she was on the cusp of making history. She realized something was afoot when she and tour mate Elvis Presley started packing out auditoriums and coliseums across the country.
We recently visited an area on the Florence-Kelvin Highway called “The Boulders.” There are huge boulders off the highway that have been there for eons. I have never seen the amount of graffiti that was spray painted on these huge rocks, there were shotgun shells everywhere, along with shot-up televisions, a deer leg and a lot of other trash. What makes these people (idiots) think we want to see their names scrawled all over the countryside? Do you think you are that important? What happened to responsible gun owners picking up their empty shells? So, your TV quits and the garbage man won’t pick it up. Hey, let’s take it out to the desert, shoot it up and leave the mess for someone else to clean up. I don’t want to see your graffiti, see parts of animals that you killed or any of your other trash. Sometimes I wish the State of Arizona would just shut down these areas to keep people from destroying it.
Mesa Grande Cultural Park will step into the season with a special winter celebration for the whole family on Dec. 21.
After watching two very good college football teams go at it last night, I felt compelled to express my thoughts regarding the seemingly prevailing culture of sports fans. Even though the final score was in favor of Stanford, I found it quite disturbing regarding two items: the TV commentators and the home team’s fans. Until it was evident that Stanford had thoroughly trounced ASU, the TV men could not talk enough about ASU, its seven straight home wins, its fabulous coach, Todd Graham, his PAC-12 Coach of the Year honors, while panning the ASU faithful while not once showing any of the Stanford fans in the stadium. I might add full disclosure: I am an former ASU varsity letter winner in baseball and I have a grandson playing for Stanford.
