Democrat Fred DuVal and Republican Doug Ducey sparred on several issues during their first gubernatorial debate Wednesday in Chandler.
“Shoot first, ask questions later” to “Paralysis by analysis.” Doesn’t that seem to be the change in American foreign policy over the last decade?
On Aug. 26, Chandler voters will have the option to again allow the city determine its own way to spend its money.
Police cannot frisk someone they stop and question absent some “reasonable suspicion that criminal activity is afoot,” the Arizona Supreme Court ruled Thursday.
There is some interesting ongoing conversation about the Gilbert Public Schools Governing Board’s recent reversal of policy regarding who has and should have the power to set the agenda for board meetings. The policy that was in place — reportedly since 2000 — required the superintendent to set the board’s meeting agenda. By a 3-2 vote in June, that was changed back to the board members having that authority.
TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. — Let's face it: In today's hurry-up culture, there always will be a need for fast food. Even when you're enjoying a leisurely vacation in a place like Traverse City, a Lake Michigan resort community with a nationwide reputation for restaurants serving high-quality, farm-to-table fare.
Republican candidates for Legislative District 18 come from varied backgrounds and experiences but have similar views on Common Core, Medicaid and the economy.
You can almost smell it like a monsoon in the distance. It might not be on the horizon just yet, but there is something in the air that lets us know football season is almost upon us.
his July 4, Americans again celebrated our nation and its organizing principle: Liberty. We know that our founding document establishes our inalienable rights to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness”. We’re proud to be the “land of the free and the home of the brave” and to pledge “liberty and justice for all”.
I am disheartened to hear of the Arizona Department of Revenue’s recent decision to promote a new tax on Arizona homeowners who take advantage of solar energy.
It’s no wonder that public education in Arizona is in a downward spiral.
It was 50 years ago Barry Goldwater declared “extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice.” The political world gasped and he suffered a crushing defeat in the 1964 presidential election. Today, pundits and the “legacy media” commonly emphasize the importance of keeping those extremists marginalized.

In a major victory for the legislative minority, the state Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday that lawmakers on the losing end of last year's Medicaid expansion have a constitutional right to challenge the law and the levy it imposes.
It was my first year at the University of Arizona and I spent it housed in the Yuma dorm, Room 306. Going from a small charter school to living in a dorm with more people than I graduated high school with could be considered a bit of a “culture shock.” There are so many dynamics to the dorm experience, starting with the reputation of the dorm you’re about to inhabit and the small 10-foot-by-10-foot dorm room you’ll be sharing with one or possibly more human beings. You’d be surprised how cramped a small room for two can feel when you introduce a roommate’s girlfriend (or boyfriend for the ladies) to the equation. Not to mention what it’s like to have to share bathrooms with and fight for laundry space with a floor’s worth of people. It may test your patience and gross tolerance levels, but if you do it right it’ll turn out to be one of the neatest experiences of your life and a chance to develop some life-long relationships.
1. Rough wrestling. Wrestling is one of the many ways that dogs have to play, but it shouldn’t be the only way they play. Too much wrestling can cause dogs to become defensive and competitive. Wrestling should have breaks with play bows and chase games to dilute its intensity.
AMSTERDAM — Tilting your head back, pinching a herring's tail between your thumb and forefinger and lowering it into your mouth, you're not just eating a raw fish. You're getting a briny taste of Dutch history.
David Lynch meets Invasion of the Body Snatchers. David Cronenberg does District 9. Stanley Kubrick remakes Tarantula. The new film, Enemy, by Canadian director Denis Villeneuve is very hard to describe (especially without giving too much away), and the studio’s ambiguous summary of the picture – which basically says it’s about a man who sees his identical twin in a movie and then seeks to find him – doesn’t even begin to describe what this film is about or how strange it is.
Once again, we see America supporting the “dirty end” of the political stick. We are (or soon will be) supplying money and weapons to the “al-Queda” Islamists in Syria (the Islamic state of Iraq, the Levant, Ahrar al-Sham to name a few of these crazies who practice cannibalism, beheadings and the like). Now we are to climb in bed with Neo-Nazi’s in Ukraine (Svoboda, Patriots of Ukraine, Spilna Sprava, Afgantsy and the Ukrainian Insurgent Army to name just a few).
Common sense would dictate that Chickenhawks like Dick Cheney and Ted Nugent should be the last people to be consulted about troop levels and defense matters, but that’s exactly what is happening. Chickenhawks everywhere hope that an aggressive chest-thumping posture on fighting for your country will cause the American public to have amnesia about how these cowards showed the white feather when it came time for them to stand up and fight for their country during the Vietnam War. When it comes time for someone to fight for their country, Nugent and Cheney think there is no limit, as long as it does not include them. It insults our veterans to let Cheney and Nugent pose as patriots.
In the U.S., more than two-thirds of the class of 2011 was not proficient in math. In Arizona, that number jumped to 3 out of 4 students.
Calling them a federal “dictate,” Sen. Al Melvin convinced Republican colleagues in the Senate to vote Tuesday to scrap the Common Core education standards the state and schools adopted just four years earlier.
An Arizona bill that would prohibit the state from using a set of educational standards known across the U.S. as Common Core has received initial approval.
A stay-at-home mom finally sends her youngest off to school and decides to go back herself and gain a master’s degree. On the morning walk, her friend responds to the idea with, “Why would you do that? Isn’t it too late in life to be worth it?”
Forest Whitaker isn't much bothered by being one of the season's biggest Oscar snubs.
