Robert De Niro is a ruthless gangster; John Cusack is experiencing motel hell; a hot hooker with a heart of gold is on the run; a satchel bag with mysterious contents. Haven’t we seen all this before? The Bag Man desperately borrows from dozens of other dark and gritty crime-thriller films, but, unfortunately, it is more ‘bore’ than noir.
Every Friday, more than 2,000 school children from low-income families in the Southeast Valley are discreetly given a backpack of food to ensure they have enough to eat during the weekend so they’ll return on Monday nourished, alert and ready to learn. The backpacks are provided by Arizona Brainfood, which is supported by Mesa United Way and a number of local businesses and philanthropic organizations.
Instead of stepping into someone’s shoes for the day, slide on the face of an ancient Aztec, traditional Japanese samurai or a mischievous-looking demon.
I’m often surprised at the frequency in which I hear a Christian bring up Karma. As applied, Karma is the great balancer in the universe to right all wrongs and keep each successive day moving along as it should. It might be a warning to a person that a momentary bad deed will come back to haunt them, or an encouragement to a person wronged that retribution is on its way. Spend a few moments sitting at your local coffee shop and you’ll overhear hints of this in the conversations all around you. Whether we profess faith in Jesus or not, most of us live with a deep need for fairness in our daily lives. It’s what makes our world tick.

WASHINGTON — Ice cream lovers beware: The government knows you're unlikely to stop after half a cup.
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.
“The state-sanctioned discrimination bill, SB 1062, will open the door wide for all types of abuse of Arizona citizens. A pastor or business can hide behind the bible if they disagree with interracial marriage, Christians can refuse service to Mormon missionaries trying to buy a meal because the owner believes they are cult members. This bill is being introduced nation-wide. What would Jesus do? He would be kicking butts and taking names! Brewer, Melvin and Herrod will be first.”

No East Valley school enjoyed more success in hoops than Chandler’s Division III school. A half-dozen seniors entered the boys program with much fanfare and expectations, but the Trojans kept knocking on the door without being let in. This time, however, Greg Haagsma’s team busted through. A year in which the local standard for the sweater vest is now the 11th basketball coach in Arizona to surpass 500 career wins (all at Valley Christian) was capped with the school’s first state title since 2007 thanks to Cory Kasperson’s career night of 24 points, along with Zach Wolf, TJ Widner and the younger Haagsma (Brandon). It helped smooth out what was a frustrating end to an otherwise brilliant, previously-undefeated season by Scott Timmer’s girls team. The Trojans won in blowout and close fashion, against better competition, with offense and defense to the tune of 33-0, but the formulas which worked for three consecutive months randomly disappeared on the girls against Fountain Hills in the championship game in the only loss this season.
