The first debate between gubernatorial candidates Republican Doug Ducey and Democrat Fred DuVal was what I expected it to be. Their positions on education and jobs are quite well known. Both spoke well, dressed alike and were pleasant. It was what was to be expected.

“ ‘Duck Dynasties’ Secretary of State Phil Robertson has overwhelmed me again with his convert-or-kill strategy in the Mideast; we could call it The Crusades Part II. It only took three centuries for it not to work the first time.”
WAR! Here we go again! We hear the call to attack and destroy ISIS from all arenas: from Tom Patterson (“Time for US to get ‘crazy’ and fight to win in Middle East,” East Valley Tribune, Aug. 24), from Joe Klein (“An Evil That Must Be Stopped,” Time Magazine, Aug. 25), and from many politicians, government advisers and so-called military experts. And this after just having briefly commemorated the 100th anniversary of the beginning of World War I, “The Great War,” the “War To End All Wars.” As we lackadaisically prepare ourselves to slay our newest foe, ISIS, it might be worthwhile to glance at an excerpt from Ernst Glaeser’s renowned best-seller from 1928, “Jahrgang 1902” (“Birth Year 1902”).
“Shoot first, ask questions later” to “Paralysis by analysis.” Doesn’t that seem to be the change in American foreign policy over the last decade?
The East Valley has been home to some of the state’s top girls volleyball programs for years and that doesn’t look to change this season.
Kudos to Tom Patterson for his commentary on winning in the Middle East (Aug. 24). Needless to say, he’s “spot-on.” I’m sure the “American” majority would be totally supportive. We’re tired of being losers under less-than-adequate leadership. While we’re at it, use some of the tactics to clean up the coffer-depleting human trash who inhabit the communities of our “homeland.” Force is justified when put to use for the right reason(s) — in defense of the Constitution.
Let’s face it, America and the West are failing now on the world stage. Particularly in the Middle East, fanatical Islamists are riding a huge wave of success. The convert-or-die crowd seems close to establishing the long-desired caliphate of regional Islamic hegemony.
“Judging by all his vacations and rounds of golf this year alone, I’d say Obama doesn’t give a rip about all the violence in the Middle East, or the fact that the Islamic terrorists want a modern-day Holocaust.”

“The United States became the world’s largest natural gas producer in 2010 — and this year, reports have confirmed that the U.S. is now the world’s largest producer of crude oil with output exceeding 11 million barrels per day. Despite the Obama administration’s continued ban on new drilling for oil in our coastal waterways, America can now reduce its dependence on foreign oil from Saudi Arabia or any other Middle Eastern country.”
Is it time to rid our vocabulary of the term “snowbird?”

The average price to fill the tank is down once again in Arizona, with the average driver paying just shy of 2 cents less than the week prior.
Summer gets unbearably hot in the Arizona desert. Even swimming doesn’t beat the heat, but it sure makes it a little easier to take. I grew up hearing my mom’s stories about Big Surf Waterpark in Tempe and loved it when we got to visit the water park ourselves. Big Surf has changed a lot since my mom frequented it in the ’70s, but it still remains an Arizona treasure and a fantastic summer tradition.
For those of us who work in education, “back to school” is certainly the best time of the year.

People speak about autism as if it were the embodiment of hopelessness. It’s a disorder marked by lacking — a lack of social awareness, a lack of communication skills from an early age, a lack of understanding of emotions — and one that doesn’t have a cure. It’s treated and discussed as if it were a death sentence for life.
Just because the schools are a little bit smaller doesn’t mean the competition isn’t just as stiff.
Tensions rise with the temps as Valley families are smack in the middle of summer break. While it’s nice to spend more time with the littles, every parent knows the chaos that comes with a restless bunch. When it’s time to get the crew out of the house, consider one of these East Valley eateries where kids get more than just a pint-sized meal.

I’ll always have a soft spot in my heart for the original 1968 Planet of the Apes film, but the new Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is not only the best out of the eight films in the Apes franchise, it’s the best movie I’ve seen this year and one of the most exciting, thought-provoking and entertaining films ever made. This movie is jaw-dropping astounding from start to finish and is a simian spectacular of the highest order.
Come Jan. 1, thousands of Arizona veterans and others suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder will soon be able to obtain marijuana legally.
