I grew up in Pima County when the Pima Animal Care Center was first built in the 1960s, before the expansive population growth in the ensuing years. New residents poured in from elsewhere, and the pet population exploded. Back then some people feared German shepherds, then dobermans, then chows, and now this vitriol against pit bulls and pit mixes reeks of ignorance.
Austin Perkins’ pass dropped into the arms of Jorge Flores and the celebration was on.

However, 23 seconds later, it was the Mountain View faithful who were celebrating a 24-21 win.
It’s not often a baby makes it to its own baby shower.
While the kids happily stroll the neighborhood dressed as Iron Man and Frozen characters this Halloween night, tired adults may just be looking for a chance to breathe. Sure, the downtown bars are likely holding drink specials and costume contests, and that work buddy across the street probably invited everyone to his place for pumpkin spice cocktails and apple bobbing, but that would require effort and getting dressed. For those who are looking to stay in and avoid the madness this Friday night, popping some popcorn, getting cozy with a loved one, and turning to Netflix for a good Halloween horror flick is the perfect way to spend the holiday.

PHOENIX (AP) — A Phoenix woman accused of leaving her children in a hot car while she went on a job interview didn't meet the deadline to establish trust funds for her children.
Shanesha Taylor was in court Monday to discuss why she hasn't funded the education and child care funds, which was required as part of an agreement to keep her out of jail.
The 35-year-old Taylor told the judge in a settlement conference that she's concerned about funding the $60,000 because she still hasn't found a job to support her kids and may need to tap into that money.
People donated more than $114,000 after seeing her teary mug shot when she was arrested March 20.
Bystanders reported seeing Taylor's two young sons alone in her car in Scottsdale.

“The Book of Life” has most of the same pros and cons as “The Boxtrolls” from a couple of weeks ago. Both films are absolute joys to watch for their delightful characters, unique worlds and dazzling animation. As creative as they are in terms of presentation, neither film is all that original when it comes to storytelling. “The Book of Life” isn’t just a familiar story like “The Boxtrolls,” though. It’s also a very overstuffed and awkwardly paced one too.

I never used a Ouija board as a kid, but I gather the thrill of the experience corresponds with the fun gleaned from reciting “Bloody Mary” in front of a mirror three times. It's the fear struck from anticipation from what could happen, from the simple potential that there is something beyond the ethereal plane a person can summon with little thought put behind it.
It was three weeks ago when Chandler High manhandled city rival Hamilton, yet the Wolves found themselves behind Hamilton the past three weeks, despite identical records, for the top two spots in the rankings that ultimately determine playoff seeding.
