Only a week after the Gilbert Public Schools Governing Board temporarily mucked up the Apple-related company deal to build a huge plant in east Mesa, the board majority struck again, again reflecting the highly partisan Tea Party nature of what’s supposed to be a non-partisan position.

The background information that outlines the reasons why Tina Harguess won the Arizona Charter Schools Association Teacher of the Year award credits her for setting high standards, maintaining a similar standard of expectations and for collaborating with the rest of the staff.

Fifteen years ago, Donna and Roy Tuttle of Gilbert lived through one of those “parents’ worst nightmare” experiences. Their son, Travis, a graduate of Gilbert High School, was 20 and serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Russia when they got word that he and his companion, Andrew Propst, also 20, of Lebanon, Ore., had been kidnapped and were being held for ransom.

No. 6 River Valley vs. No. 2 Seton Catholic (Nov. 23 at 6 p.m. at North Canyon H.S.): So much for the theory that Seton Catholic wouldn’t be good enough to contend and potentially repeat as Div. IV state champions after the mass graduations from the 2012 title team. The Sentinels sustained their share of injuries, but a team coach Rex Bowser thought might have been a year away has gradually (though not easily) improved and learned to play at a varsity level. The Sentinels are coming off a tense quarterfinals win against Winslow, in which the defense hung on late even after allowing 315 yards rushing and three touchdowns to bulldozing RB Kelly Wood. River Valley knocked off Snowflake, 28-14 (it was the closest game River Valley has played in since Week 3), so the Sentinels won’t get another crack at Snowflake after Seton lost to them, 28-23, at home in mid-September during a penalty-marred affair. River Valley is a bit of an unknown coming from the Mohave Valley, but they’re good and have been almost all season (its only loss was 21-17 to Div. V powerhouse Yuma Catholic). The question of course, when facing Seton Catholic, is whether a team can stop the Sentinels’ spread-you-out offense. Conversely, Seton is going to get another dose of ground-and-pound with River Valley RB Brandon Long (212 yards last week vs. Snowflake). The Sentinels are extremely small in size defensively (their biggest player is 185 pounds), so they’ll have to be quicker and better tacklers than last week. Stopping Seton, however, could be the bigger problem for River Valley.
Prediction: Seton Catholic 24, River Valley 20

The minute I heard the Phoenix Suns had made yet another clear-the-cupboard, shake-the-Etch-a-Sketch, let’s-try-this-again trade on Friday, I thought about my nephew Jake.
“Now that our debt exceeds that of the entire Eurozone and United Kingdom’s combined debt, every taxpayer in America should be ready to vote the Grey Beards out of Washington regardless of political party. Harvard graduates have proven that they don’t understand the first thing about economics. If we don’t change things very soon we won’t have to worry about it because the Chinese will come in and give us a lesson in basic economics.”
