In the wake of a shootout that killed Phoenix police officer Det. John Hobbs on Monday, various organizations and community members have banded together to offer fundraisers, memorials and vigils.
TUCSON — Nicknamed "Old Pueblo," Tucson is a city with many faces. It's a college town. It's an artist town. It's even still a Wild West town. Every February, southern Arizona's biggest city, located 115 miles (185 kilometers) below Phoenix, keeps schools open on President's Day but closes them later in the week for the annual Tucson Rodeo Parade.
LOS ANGELES — With Darren Aronofsky's "Noah" and Ridley Scott's "Exodus" preparing to duke it out for Old Testament auteur supremacy, Hollywood's religious renaissance gets off to a none-too-spectacular start with a chewed-over New Testament appetizer called "Son of God." A clumsily edited feature-length version of five episodes from History's hugely popular 10-hour miniseries "The Bible," this stiff, earnest production plays like a half-hearted throwback to the British-accented biblical dramas of yesteryear, its small-screen genesis all too apparent in its Swiss-cheese construction and subpar production values. Yet while Jesus' teachings have been reduced to a muddle of kindly gestures and mangled Scriptures, the scenes of his betrayal, death and resurrection crucially retain their emotional and dramatic power, which the charitable viewer may deem atonement enough for what feels, in all other respects, like a cynical cash grab.
Republican Gov. Jan Brewer faced intensifying pressure Monday from CEOs, politicians in Washington and state lawmakers in her own party to veto a bill that would allow business owners with strongly held religious beliefs to deny service to gays and lesbians.
The state Senate sent Gov. Jan Brewer controversial legislation billed as protecting religious freedom on Monday even as two more senators who voted last week for SB 1062 now say that was a mistake.
This is a list of East Valley football players who have signed college Letters of Intent during the 2014 signing period. This list will be continually updated.
A Southern Arizona lawmaker wants taxpayers from his area — and around the entire state — to help Glendale pay its costs of hosting next year's Super Bowl. And Gov. Jan Brewer, a Glendale resident, said she's willing to consider it, though she's not yet sold on the idea.
TAOS, N.M. — To winter sports enthusiasts, Taos is best known for its challenging ski slopes. But this northern New Mexico town has plenty more to offer visitors year-round, on and off the slopes. A hipper little sister of sorts to Santa Fe, Taos is known for its diverse outdoor offerings as well as its funky town square packed full of history, art galleries and Hispanic and Native American culture. Whereas Santa Fe is known for its wealth, Taos is lower-key and tends to attracts a younger, more starving-artist-type crowd. It's a town where new-age nomadic hippies, (referred to locally as "sage monkeys") peacefully coexist with artists, natives, daredevil skiers and even wealthy Texan tourists. Here are five free things to do and see on your next trip to Taos.
Derek Andresen is nearly there.
Based on his four feature films, it’s clear that Spike Jonze’s mind is nothing short of an endlessly inventive wonderland. He brought two of the most creative screenplays ever written to life in “Being John Malkovich” and “Adaptation.” In “Where the Wild Things Are,” he took a 48-page picture book and transformed it into one of the most emotionally complex family movies of all time. “Her,” the director’s latest outing, is simply a revelation of imagination.
A man in love with his computer’s operating system. It’s an odd premise, especially for anyone who ever purchased Windows Vista, but somehow writer/director Spike Jonze (Being John Malkovich) was able to turn this idea into Her, one of the best sci-fi movies of the year and a thought-provoking commentary on love and human relationships in the time of technology.

“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.
A profound work by one of the 20th century’s most influential writers is making its stage debut in the Valley. The world premiere of C.S. Lewis’ “The Great Divorce” runs through Sunday, Dec. 22, at Herberger Theater Center in Phoenix.
If some new blood can enter the girls soccer scene this season, the winter months could offer even more of a refresher beyond this chilly air.
The chill of winter means basketball is already underway with a plethora of early-season games and tournaments, and yet the question remains:
It all sounds exhausting: A championship program with completely new starting lineups, followed by a coaching change, followed by injuries to its top talent.
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.
“Gilbert may reject U.S. funding.”
Tom Hanks didn’t know where the cameras were.
