I’ve made a habit lately of studying the Amish. I use the word “study” loosely as this is not a simple curiosity of mine or some kind of theological experiment. My exploration flows out of a deep respect and admiration for their faith and spirituality. We English (that’s what the Amish call us outside their communities) recognize them because of their familiar beards, horse-drawn buggies, fine woodworking, or barn-raisings, but there’s a lot more to this group than sturdy furniture and firm dispositions. They have a lively, vibrant faith despite their archaic lifestyles.
Mesa quickly rebuffs online ‘boring’ image. Growing up in western Pennsylvania, our little town of Aliquippa, a one-steel-mill town that went 7 miles down the Ohio River, employed over 80 percent of all workers. Even in the late 1970s and ’80s, our downtown was more vibrant than Mesa’s. In the heat of the summer, when business was traditionally slow, the merchants came up with a three-day event called ”Rodeo Days.” Everybody dressed in cowboy outfits and all the merchants had special offers, free bus rides, music and lots of free food and beverages. It was a family affair and everyone had fun. Next to the Christmas holiday season, Rodeo Days was a crowd pleaser, brought fun traffic to downtown and increased sales tax revenues. It went on for over 20 years. We had restaurants, stores, movie theaters, nightclubs and taverns when the steel mill workers got off their shifts. There were great clothing stores and home furnishing stores, or anything you needed. Pittsburgh’s downtown had the largest department stores like Gimbels, great night life, professional sports and entertainment.

The Education Department on Thursday took the unprecedented step of releasing the names of the 55 colleges and universities currently facing a Title IX investigation over their handling of sexual abuse complaints.
“I’m not shocked that our fast food culture would fall for Paul Ryan’s ‘Coupon-Care’ insurance scam. Everybody gets a coupon for Ryan’s plain-jane hamburger. You want cheese? That’s extra. You want lettuce and tomato? Extra money! Remember the old commercial, ‘Where’s the beef?” That’s extra, too. But you do get a tasty bun, according to Mr. Ryan. ‘Have it his way!’”
The ChicagoFest in Mesa was a complete disappointment. Charging $10 to walk around two rocky, sandy areas, in front a shopping mall, minimal food booths, etc. The “museum” of Chicago History was nothing more than typed up reports pinned to a board.

The yin and yang of spring make it such an interesting season. After the brutal bite of winter, even a gloomy spring day can lift our spirits with warmer breezes and an emerging palette of delicate hues — those first tinges of new greens, a fuzzy gray bud, a brushstroke of crocus blue. Then, as the season really plants its feet, fresh bright color starts popping up all over.
McClintock (6-3-1) scored three runs in the 10th inning to beat Maricopa. Junior shortstop Mary Mentz's double scored senior center fielder Karina Hidalgo with the the go-ahead run, and senior pitcher Shealynn Zimnick followed one out later with a two-run single, scoring Andi Blodgett and Mentz with insurance runs. It was McClintock's third victory this season coming in its final at-bat, having previously topped El Paso Franklin and Bushland, Texas, in the Fox Country Girls Fast Pitch Tournament in El Paso. McClintock also put up two runs in the seventh inning Tuesday to rally from a 2-1 deficit, but surrendered the tying run in the bottom of the inning, sending the game to extra innings. Mentz led McClintock, going 4 for 5 with two doubles and a triple, while Zimnick was 3 for 4 with a double and a walk. She also improved her record in the circle to 5-2, striking out eight. Maricopa got two hits apiece from Madison Byrd, Madison Moncel and Vickie Andrade while playing stellar defense.
