“People were complaining when they answered their phones because ‘Harry Mitchell’ popped up on the caller ID and it was Schweikert’s office. They were blaming Schweikert but they can really only blame their own stupidity. It popped up because they still have the name loaded in their phones under Harry Mitchell’s name. Delete the number from your phone and it will be fixed. Typical of Democrats, no personal responsibility.”

Celebrate Mesa, a free, family-friendly party in the park, is back this fall with extended hours and a Halloween theme.
Here’s the other big Mesa schools’ matchup. Mountain View is reeling a bit after last week’s rough second half in a loss to Desert Mountain, but injuries have been the Toros’ bigger cause for concern. More kids were lost against Desert Mountain, and while a week of practice will help some kids who haven’t seen many (or any) reps heading into this game, Mesa’s defense is difficult to simulate. We know what the Jackrabbits are going to do: run the ball. This is a vastly different matchup than Desert Mountain presented for the Toros (especially defensively) which probably plays into Mountain View’s favor given its injuries. Mesa is going to come out firing as it tries to hang on for its playoff lives, but the Toros will do just enough to get by this week, which is big because Red Mountain and Desert Ridge are coming.
Prediction: Mountain View 20, Mesa 10
