With the USA and coalitions dabbling in some type of skirmish with ISIS terrorists in the Syrian and Iraqi regions, now’s an important time to reflect on the advancement of terrorism and its impact on America’s way of life. Case in point:
Westwood’s football team is in the middle of a resurgence. In 2011 and 2012 in Division I, the Warriors suffered back-to-back 1-9 seasons, but now things are different.
WWE goes pink with Susan G. Komen
Q: Would you say your district is delivering quality services now and what, if any, changes would you make?
I’ve learned to be tolerant of radicals. Well, sort of. It’s known that two extremes can serve the moderates in our political system. When the two sides fight it out, there’s a tendency to pull toward the center.
“Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose,” goes the French proverb credited to Jean-Baptiste Alphonse Karr: “The more things change, the more they stay the same.” It’s not that a society or organization cannot be transformed. But such change is often cosmetic or superficial. Reality isn’t altered at the deeper, more profound levels.
Jews from across the Southwest will gather in the Valley on Oct. 11-12 for “Sacred Waters,” a program sponsored by the Union for Reform Judaism (URJ), to explore the role of water in Jewish tradition and ritual, as well as the relationship Jews have to water in the Southwest and, geopolitically, in the Middle East.
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.”
School districts across the East Valley educated their students at a rate above the state standards according to information released by the Arizona Department of Education on Aug. 4.
School districts across the East Valley educated their students at a rate above the state standards according to information released by the Arizona Department of Education on Monday afternoon.
“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?”
Andrew Walter sat down with the Ahwatukee Foothills News and East Valley Tribune on July 11 to answer questions dealing with the economy, education and the Veteran Affairs scandal.
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.
In its 16th year of operation, East Valley Academy, a K-6 charter school in Mesa, continues to make big strides in redefining quality education.
