We were pleasantly overwhelmed by the standing room only audience that participated so enthusiastically and honestly in our recent 14 July “Perils and Perils of Privilege" workshop at Pomegranate Café. It was for us an opportunity to move conversations about diversity and difference to a deeper level of personal and social examination.

NEW YORK — Family travel falls into three distinct phases. First, there's the exhausting period of travel with crying babies who need diapers, bottles, strollers, car seats and naps. Then come the golden years, when kids can handle long rides and long walks, when they actually think scavenger hunts are fun, and when they bask in their family's love and attention.
Tomorrow, July 14, Arizona State University’s Project Humanities will attempt to uncover the meaning of privilege and how it impacts society with a free workshop in the East Valley.
More than a decade ago, former Chief Justice Roy Moore of the Alabama Supreme Court installed a massive granite monument inscribed with the Ten Commandments in the rotunda of the Alabama State Judicial Building. Two years later it was removed by court order as a violation of the separation of church and state. Shortly thereafter, Justice Moore was also removed by court order from the Alabama State Judicial Building.
Have you ever wondered why some butterflies have iridescent blue-black wings and a taste that’s repulsive to birds and other predators? Ron Rutowski, a Tempe resident and biology professor at Arizona State University since 1976, has too — actually, he’s spent years and traveled extensively throughout North and Central America and Australia, studying the ways color is produced, employed and perceived in the animal kingdom, particularly on ways insects use color as a visual signal and how it’s interpreted by their compound eyes.
Boyce Thompson Arboretum celebrates the longest day of the year Arizona style with a day dedicated to our state’s venomous nemesis — the scorpion.
Okay, so maybe “My eyes abhorred you” is a little harsh for the title of my review for Jersey Boys, the new film by director Clint Eastwood, based on the rise and fall of the sixties musical group, The Four Seasons; but dang it, it was just too good of a tagline to waste. The film is actually more boring than abhorrent, but it’s certainly easier to listen to than it is to watch.
Plans for the Temple/Pioneer Park neighborhood will be discussed at an open house on June 24 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in the Saguaro Room at Mesa Public Library.
“Beat the Heat” farmers market will take place at Desert Horizon Nursery, 19250 S. Ellsworth Road, Queen Creek, on June 21 from 7 a.m. until 2 p.m.
Making a yard and a community more beautiful begins at the curb. But that narrow space between sidewalk and street — sometimes called a boulevard, median, hellstrip, parkway, verge or tree belt — is a gardening challenge.
This June 10, 2014 photo shows a curbside garden where a gardener uses perennials to soften the look of the narrow area between sidewalk and street in Langley, Washington. The day lilies and ornamental grasses are attractive, easy to maintain and low enough to the ground that they don’t block sight lines. Unlike annuals, perennials only have to be worked into the ground once, making the soil more compact and preventing runoff that can clog storm sewers. (AP Photo/Dean Fosdick)
This June 10, 2014 photo shows a pedestrian-friendly street makeover in Langley, Washington, that includes a number of Hellstrip Gardens — flowers, trees and shrubs planted between sidewalk and street. Frequent watering is often difficult at these curbside plots. Langley gardeners are using slow release water bags at the base of the newly planted trees until their roots can become established. The bags only need to be refilled once or twice a week. (AP Photo/Dean Fosdick)
When my father Ira Fulton was just 12 years old, his father stood him in front of a mirror and said, “Ira, this is your competition. Don’t compare yourself to others; just compare yourself with you.” Years later, my father would repeat this scenario, but now he was the father and I was the mirror image.
Marigold is among the most widely planted and, hence, mundane of flowers. Yet I enjoy them as an essential part of summer with their yolk-like blooms and pungent foliage.

Before I begin, I just want to take a moment to say thank you, to my amazing teachers and to my ceaselessly supportive parents and family. A special shoutout to my family members who have come from so far out of town to see me graduate today: You guys mean everything to me, and I certainly would not be here without your support- and I'm sure all of us out here tonight can express the same feelings towards all of our families. Could we have a round of applause for our families and supporters?
I'd like to start off by mentioning a promise I made to my English teacher two years ago.
