What would 2014 and beyond look like if we as people decided to generously share both our life in faith and money with no expectation of return? Well, it would set us free to experience blessing. A few days ago a total stranger shared generously with me. When I tried to thank her and give back, she refused with a smile on her faith. It caught me off guard. It was an action that was so counter cultural. We live in a world where we give and usually expect something in return. In our popular market driven worldview, our money and faith lives are linked in that they are both means of reciprocity. I trade my time and talent to get money, and then I trade money to get what I need or want.
Gov. Jan Brewer is building up her war chest to help elect like-minded Republicans to Congress.
State Legislature helping out powerful, keeping rest of us in the dark
State officials and mental health advocates approved an historic deal Wednesday to provide more services for the seriously mentally ill, bringing an end to a 33-year-old lawsuit.
It doesn’t take rocket science to make the case for happiness, but a law degree from Yale sure doesn’t hurt — at least, it didn’t in the case of Gretchen Rubin, author of “The Happiness Project” and a guest columnist for Good Housekeeping magazine. In contrast to other self-help writers, Rubin addresses the ephemeral idea of happiness systematically, arguing that life’s felicities are concrete and often intuitive.
People who made losing weight one of their New Year’s resolutions can get the ball rolling and maybe win some cash through a contest by Orangetheory Fitness.
Exercise. Diet. Being a nicer person. Giving more to charity. Volunteering. Becoming optimistic. Don’t sweat the small stuff. All well and good as individual New Year’s resolutions go — at least until about late February when they’re long forgotten — but what about the bigger picture? For all the craziness (good and bad) that happened in 2013, there’s no reason to think much the same will happen in 2014. Some we’re wishing for to happen again. Some not so much. But the goal is to always leave one year slightly better off than the one before, so here’s Varsity Xtra’s New Year wish list. We don’t ask for much, just these. [compiled by Mark Heller/Tribune]:
It's the same thing every year. We overindulge during the holidays, then make solemn (and quickly abandoned) promises to eat healthier and shed pounds in the new year.
About 45 percent of Americans usually make New Year’s resolutions, according to a survey from the University of Scranton. But the same survey shows that only 8 percent of us actually keep our resolutions. Perhaps this low success rate isn’t such a tragedy when our resolutions involve things like losing a little weight or learning a foreign language. But when we make financial resolutions — resolutions that, if achieved, could significantly help us in our pursuit of our important long-term goals — it’s clearly worthwhile to make every effort to follow through.
As we attempt the uber-busy transition between seasons — fall into winter in this case — with a flurry of winter sports previews and All-Tribune honors for the fall, the New Year has quickly crept up on us.
NEW YORK — Whether you're looking for something thin and light, or want a tablet that performs like a laptop, there's plenty to choose from if you're willing to spend a bit more for a high-end laptop computer.
PHOENIX — State officials are trying to delay a federal appellate court hearing on the question of whether the Tohono O'odham Nation can build a casino on the edge of Glendale.
With tickets on sale Nov. 11, the countdown begins to the New Year’s Eve Block Party on Mill. After a one-year hiatus, the longtime East Valley bash is coming back with a bang and a dash of family-friendly programming.
After plenty of haggling, and a fair amount of political theater, Congress reached a last-minute agreement to raise the debt ceiling and end the partial government shutdown. Most people would agree that a fully functioning government that can pay its bills on time is a positive thing — and it’s certainly good news for investors, because a default on the part of the U.S. government could have had serious repercussions in the financial markets. But what’s next?
NEW YORK — It's a turkey. It's a menorah. It's Thanksgivukkah!
TUCSON — Saying their success would “devastate” the state budget, Gov. Jan Brewer on Wednesday said she does not want U.S. House Republicans to succeed in their bid to shutdown the Affordable Care Act.
One of the favorite Republican arguments for the last four years has been this one: While the Republicans have repeatedly passed a budget in the House, the Democrats, well, chose not to.
One could conclude the Democratic Party has swung too far to the left and peril awaits them in up-coming elections. Debt is no longer fashionable; a tool many bragged was trendy. One need not look far to see citizens across the land rising in revolt to the status quo.
It’s been 75 years since Dorothy clicked her sparkling ruby heels together and wished to go home, and now you can see her dazzling red kicks and the zany world of Oz like never before.
The Phoenix Coyotes spent four years looking over their shoulders as numerous potential owners came forward then fell away.

Editor’s note: This is part five of a continuing summer series on the proposed South Mountain Loop 202 Freeway.
The Gilbert Unified School District governing board is taking action to withdrawal from the Arizona School Board Association.
Humanity's home planet hardly merits the name-check in "After Earth," M. Night Shyamalan's sci-fi survival tale whose shipwreck action could (with the exception of a scene where our hero scrawls a crude map over Lascaux-like cave paintings) take place on any old life-supporting globe in the cosmos. The disappointingly generic film, which strands a father and son (Will and Jaden Smith) on Earth a thousand years after a planet-wide evacuation, will leave genre audiences pining for the more Terra-centric conceits of "Oblivion," not to mention countless other future-set films that find novelty in making familiar surroundings threatening. Will Smith's presence, not just as co-star but as originator of the story, seems likely to carry box office receipts beyond the benchmark of Shyamalan's previous picture, the wretched "The Last Airbender," but those hoping for a franchise should navigate elsewhere.
