The City of Mesa held a grand opening event on Dec. 4 for a new mixed-use development that will provide housing for low- to moderate-income families.
Roxy is a furry, purry bundle of love with one spot of gray fur on the top of her head. Nothing makes this sweet girl happier than being with her people. She loves being brushed, being petted, and having her gray spot scratched. She loves to snuggle in your arms or in your lap for long stretches of time. It would be interesting to see just how long she’d be content to stay put in your arms or lap.
Does anyone even care that 6,000 cases of reported neglect and abuse went un-investigated by Child Protective Services Special Welfare Assessment Team at the Arizona Department of Economic Security?
Arizona Senators Jeff Flake and John McCain fielded questions and comments — both positive and negative in nature — about the Affordable Care Act and addressed other issues at a town hall event in Mesa on Nov. 25.
I was 4 ½ years old when I delivered my first news report.
This is Whizbeedit, a domestic short-haired brown Tabby female kitten. She has lots of energy, but also likes to be held and be pet by her people. Whizbeedit expresses her appreciation with lots of purring.
In addition to teaching their students each day, writing lesson plans and connecting with parents, most Arizona teachers have gone through a myriad of district- and state-mandated training sessions. Many give up weekends or evenings to attend these trainings to better prepare themselves to provide the best opportunities for our students. For some, that would be sufficient. For others, it’s only the beginning.
Those who abhor public prayer are at it again. They are offended by reference to deity among other things.
Arizona needs to step up and take its rightful role as a leader in the energy technology industry.
“The cupboard is bare”, said House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi recently in reference to the federal budget crisis. “There’s [sic] no more cuts to make. It’s really important that people understand that.”
Robert Rodriguez's "Machete Kills" is a sequel based on an end-credits joke from a film that was itself based on a joke trailer contained within a half-joke grindhouse homage. Exactly how many degrees such an endeavor is removed from anything resembling serious cinema would require Jean Baudrillard to calculate, yet for more immediate filmgoing purposes, all there is to see here is a surprisingly long-lived gag finally running out of gas. As violent as its predecessor yet noticeably duller and less outrageous, "Machete Kills" is dragged to the finish line entirely by its director's madcap energy and an absurd cast of major stars in strange cameos.
A nearby, decades-old military operation little known by locals is coming to an end, but not without skeptics who say satellites are now left vulnerable.
ATLANTA (AP) — Sunlight is free, but if you use it to make electricity your power company wants you to pay.
No resource in Arizona is more precious or scarce than water. Economic growth in our desert environment relies upon inexpensive and easy access to available water, plain and simple.
Three Higley School District governing board members, Venessa Whitener, Kim Anderson, and Denise Standage, voted on Sept. 10 to accept $750,000 from the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors to construct and operate a Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) fueling station. The reason given is to reduce air pollution caused by buses. Good grief. This unnatural fixation that we are dying in the streets from environmental catastrophe is insane. Board member Jake Hoffman tried in vain to table the vote for further research, presenting an analysis which shows that it will end up costing taxpayers $2.3 million. For example, the district doesn’t even own any CNG vehicles and will have to replace 62 buses and 53 fleet vehicles, which will take years. These three board members are not just misusing taxpayer dollars, but they are doing it without performing due diligence. They are also dabbling in an unproven industry about which they know zilch, and where they have no business, plus they are competing with the private market (Clean n Green is less than five miles from the intended site). The MCBOS will be voting on the acceptance of Higley’s grant application on Sept. 23, so this can be stopped. According to Mr. Hoffman, CNG vehicles represent less than four one-hundredths of one percent of all vehicles registered in the United States. Education should not be the petri dish for unproven, currently unsustainable commodities.
I am writing about Bill Richardson’s thoughtful column: “Our new crime-riddled ‘Five C’s’ and what to do about them” (Commentary, Tribune, Sept. 18).
Will the Obama-haters please get off of this kick regarding the final leg of the Keystone Pipeline being our nation’s salvation for energy independence. Please!
With a war on Syria becoming more of a reality, the price of crude oil continues to increase. Our ever-increasing reliance on foreign oil has left us in a financial tough spot whenever turmoil in the Middle East flares up. With the situation in Syria continuing to worsen, there appears to be no end in sight.
Queen Creek continued its undefeated season with a 33-12 victory against visiting Show Low.
The Arizona Corporation Commission has dropped its consideration of deregulating the state's retail electricity market, a move that clears uncertainty surrounding two energy projects in neighboring New Mexico.
With all the continuing trouble in the Middle East (i.e. Syria, higher oil prices, various government fighting) we need to be less obligated in Middle East oil and more focused on the Keystone Pipeline.
The Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station declared an unusual event when oil-soaked insulation behind a water pump caught fire, officials said Tuesday.
Americans believe in science. Generally, most of us have faith in medicine. A majority of Americans, though ever-thinning, tell pollsters they’re religious and yet we’ve reached virtual consensus about going to the hospital when we’re sick. We are, in some cases, obligated by law to seek medical care. Courts have found the denial of medical care to children, when it results in their death, to be a crime. In the eyes of the law, science trumps religious fervor.
NEW YORK — The farm-to-table movement has become farm to facial for some in the spa industry, with more locations offering fresh herbs and flowers from their own gardens for treatments.
DETROIT (AP) — Every new car window sticker shows the estimated cost of fuel for a year, but that figure may not reflect the miles you drive. A new survey does that math for you.
