Whether it’s grandma’s garden, a desert landscape or a patch of green grass, our gardens enrich our lives with a certain serenity and calmness. A beautiful garden can whisk us away to another place and time. “Flourish: Artworks Inspired by Our Gardens,” on display at Vision Gallery in Chandler through Aug. 30, features textiles, ceramics, photography and mixed media by 50 Arizona artists focusing on natural, floral and botanical artworks.
Where do central Arizonans go for a quick, out-of-state escape? Families with younger kids often go west to San Diego, hedonists south to Rocky Point, Mexico, and those who like to be active in mountains and canyons can go north to Moab, Utah, a kind of Disneyland for the outdoorsy set.
Lush lawns are the suburban ideal and may provide some curb appeal and jealous glances from neighbors, but killing the grass may save homeowners a lot of water and green.

Tucson: Cool Summer Nights
I’ve been an Ahwatukee resident since 1999 and I would love to keep the Lakes golf course, but the truth is I haven’t played golf or supported the local courses in over four years. Not because of any reason other than I don’t golf as much as I used to. People do not spend time playing golf like they used to. I played three-four times a week back in the ’90s, but now play less than one time every four years. How many of you actually play golf and supported the Lakes or Country Club?
Across the Oglala Grasslands of Nebraska: One of Best Short Hikes in America
The beginning of the school year provides opportunities for fresh ideas and positive changes to enhance learning experiences for all children. During the spring and summer, the Kyrene School District Governing Board and district leaders were hard at work considering ideas that would impact the budget for the 2014-15 school year. The final budget approved on July 8 was not only balanced, it also represents an investment in spending for whole-child programs such as art, music, physical education, library, math/literacy coaches who provide support and a change to the start times for Kyrene middle schools. This budget also demonstrates the board’s commitment to invest in one of our most valuable resources — teachers and staff who received a cost of living increase.
In an effort to combat the misinformation campaign by the Save the Lakes group, we will be running regular op-eds to set the record straight on our proposed solution for the former Ahwatukee Lakes Golf Course. This first op-ed will address open space.
Four people were on a Valley Metro bus when it collided with another vehicle in Chandler Wednesday morning.
Unfortunately, there has been a lot of misinformation generated by the Save the Lakes group related to the closed Ahwatukee Lakes golf course. It is time to set the record straight on what currently appears to be the sole solution on a sustainable use for the second life of the former Lakes golf course:
My wife keeps a checklist of all the national parks she’s visited, but there was one glaring hole in her explorations, Arizona’s own Petrified Forest. So, to close the gap, we decided to spend a few nights at the wonderful La Posada resort in Winslow and spend a day at the park. It was such a good day I can’t believe we’ve never done it before.
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.
NEW YORK — The popularity of the Disney movie "Frozen" has not only led to box-office profits, sold-out merchandise and long lines to meet "Frozen" characters in Disney parks. It's also motivating fans to visit Norway to see the landscape that inspired the animated movie setting.
“(Maricopa County Sheriff Joe) Arpaio should be commended for lowering crime and rescuing animals from certain death. You don't have to like his schtick.” Gubernatorial candidate Christine Jones responding to a question from KPNX’s Brahm Resnik on why she sought Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s endorsement. http://www.azcentral.com/story/news/arizona/politics/2014/06/07/arizona-income-tax-debate-end/10119357/.
As progress on Gilbert’s first four-year educational institution continues, one thing university officials are trying to do is blend the town’s aesthetic with a hint of their hometown.
YPRES, Belgium — Crimson poppies still dance in the breeze as if nothing horrific happened in Flanders Fields. But a century after the start of World War I, the flowers endure as a symbol of war dead, in part because of a celebrated poem:
LAS VEGAS — For years, Las Vegas took the bigger-is-better route, building expansive glassy megaresorts with 4,000 rooms apiece and seemingly endless check-in counters.
