Painted along the edges of “A Walk Among the Tombstones” is the urgent reminder the end of the world is nigh.

Janet Hagberg was the first person who defined the experience for me. I had lived through it, but I didn’t know what to call it. In a book entitled, “The Critical Journey,” Janet called the experience, simply, “The Wall.” My summary goes like this. Many people begin their walk of faith, and everything goes as they expected. Out of genuine conviction, they attend church, learn from the Scriptures, volunteer, serve, give, and become “productive, committed, faithful, Christians” (whatever that exactly means, who knows?). But somewhere along the way things go wrong. Terribly wrong.

His face is on billboards and bus stops around town, but Tito Muñoz — the new Virginia G. Piper Music Director of The Phoenix Symphony and a rising young star on the conductor circuit, is an unassuming man who speaks humbly, equating his role to that of “a glorified traffic cop.”
Roy Higgins, bartender at El Palacio Restaurant and Cantina in Chandler, said he enjoys serving drinks because of the great group of people he serves on a daily basis. But the job has been, at least, a small part of his life since early on.
“It got me through school, actually; through college,” Higgins said.
He recounted washing dishes in New Jersey as a teen and has “always kept a foot in the business.” After running his own personal training nutrition business for 10 years, the birth of his son and an unstable economy meant Higgins needed to seek more dependable work. That work was back behind the bar, this time at El Palacio, where he has worked for five years and managed for the past four.
“The people that come in are great,” he said. “It’s pretty amazing how many people I’ve met just standing behind that bar.”
El Palacio may well be a classic example of success in family-owned restaurants — a small chain that started in Bullhead City and now includes five other locations in the state, as well as one in Nevada.
“It’s family. Working for Anthony (Serrano) and the family, it’s fantastic,” Higgins said.
But what Higgins said he enjoys most is the great group of regulars that come in to El Palacio on a daily basis.
“It’s nice to see that when you work hard, people notice it,” he said. “It makes me happy, all the individuals that come in and come back. I’d like to say thank you to the people who took time to vote for me.”

One of my first actions as mayor was to announce the formation of the Falcon Strategic Visioning Commission. For more than 75 years, Mesa’s Falcon Field Economic Activity Area (FFEAA) has led the nation in aviation innovation. From the early 1940s when WWII U.S. and British cadets trained over the skies of Mesa, to today where multimillion dollar, cutting-edge aircraft continue to set the standard in aviation; the FFEAA is one of Mesa’s most dynamic and dense zones of employment and economic opportunity.
