Today is the 222nd anniversary of the ratification of the Bill of Rights, the first 10 amendments to the U.S. Constitution that guarantee so many freedoms from government excess that we often take for granted.
After watching two very good college football teams go at it last night, I felt compelled to express my thoughts regarding the seemingly prevailing culture of sports fans. Even though the final score was in favor of Stanford, I found it quite disturbing regarding two items: the TV commentators and the home team’s fans. Until it was evident that Stanford had thoroughly trounced ASU, the TV men could not talk enough about ASU, its seven straight home wins, its fabulous coach, Todd Graham, his PAC-12 Coach of the Year honors, while panning the ASU faithful while not once showing any of the Stanford fans in the stadium. I might add full disclosure: I am an former ASU varsity letter winner in baseball and I have a grandson playing for Stanford.
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.
Once you peel away the wrapping and the tinsel, nothing speaks as profoundly to the heart of Christmas as “The Messiah” does.
We have traditionally had two inescapable realities in life: death and taxes. Well, you can add to that list: death, taxes and fees. Fortunately, this past week at least one kind of fee was said to be improperly levied. It’s one charged to you for keeping tabs on your government.

The Gilbert Chamber of Commerce will host a holiday event on Dec. 5 to raise $5,000 to donate to a local charitable organization.
I can’t imagine being a Child Protective Services caseworker. But I can imagine why most of those men and women went into those jobs: an idealistic view that their work could make a difference in children’s lives, maybe save some kids from horrible fates, maybe find ways to change a dysfunctional family into a loving one.
Among the most beautiful and spectacular Christmas displays in the Valley—with hundreds of thousands of colorful lights, uniquely illuminated palm trees and flower gardens, an inspiring, European-crafted nativity scene, and more—is at the Mesa Arizona Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

PHOENIX — The state's limits on how much candidates can collect from donors will remain in place, at least for the time being.
While viewing George and Laura Bush being interviewed on Jay Leno last eve I was reminded, we once had Presidents and First Ladies with class. It was refreshing to recall how they represented our country around the world, with respect and dignity. Two people who can enjoy a joke and face up to negative press.

Ever since it took home the coveted Palme d’Or at Cannes (the festival’s top honor) in May, “Blue is the Warmest Color” has been heating up the conversation among film critics and aficionados alike.
I like prayer. I often pray, at least once a day, likely more. Our family prays each day at dinner, as we have for generations. We’ve discussed prayer over the years, that prayer is at least as powerful for those who pray as for those who are the subjects of prayer, that prayer helps us cope with those difficult times and celebrate the beauty in our lives.
There are as many schools of thought on the whole advantage-disadvantage debate in "rematch" games as there are rematch games this week in the state tournament quarterfinals.
These matchups are inevitable. Whether sooner or later, a second helping is almost always required for a football team to play on.
The football regular season has come and gone, and while it’d be foolish to make snap judgements or draw concrete conclusions about anything based on one year, it’s interesting to take a quick look back and see what effect (if any) the recently implemented appeal process had on a few East Valley schools.
Those who abhor public prayer are at it again. They are offended by reference to deity among other things.
