While traveling in Central America, I had the opportunity to worship at an international, interdenominational, English-speaking church. The congregation contained Africans, Italians, Spaniards, Latinos, Americans, and Asians. We sang old Irish hymns and modern, Australian worship choruses. The service was a mixture of Lutheran, Reformed, and Pentecostal elements. The welcome was given by a Canadian, a German read the Scripture lesson, and an American did the preaching. It was a wonderful, diverse experience, and for a little while I thought the kingdom of God had come.
The next month promises to bring out lots of mud, baseless accusations and partisan attacks as we move toward the Nov. 4 election. Despite the polls, the campaign for governor should even not be close.
October may be full of haunted houses and cute kids in pumpkin costumes, but it’s also National Pizza Month. In honor of this tasty designation, here are three East Valley pizzerias worth their pie.
Gov. Jan Brewer is headed off to Norway and then Ireland this week in hopes of boosting trade with the two countries. Press aide Andrew Wilder said that, no, that doesn't mean more sardines for Arizona.
PHOENIX -- Gov. Jan Brewer is headed to Norway, then Ireland this week in hopes of boosting trade with the two countries.
And press aide Andrew Wilder said that, no, that doesn't mean more sardines for Arizona.
"The governor and the Arizona Commerce Authority believe there significant potential for growth to improve trade between Arizona, Norway and Ireland,'' he said. Wilder said Brewer wants to "promote the state as a great place to do business,'' something he said could create new jobs here.
While in Europe, Brewer also will address the Oxford Union Society which bills itself as "the world's most prestigious debating society with an unparalleled reputation for bringing international guests and speakers to Oxford.''
Wilder said Brewer was invited to give a speech on her efforts to improve Arizona's economy during the global recession along with topics like immigration. And he said she'll also stand for questions.
But he said the main focus is that trade mission.
Her trip, though, also means she will miss the formal opening of a trade office Arizona is opening this coming week in Mexico City. Lawmakers approved funding for that this past session.
Wilder said while Brewer would have liked to attend, the Europe trip, having been postponed from the spring, was already in the works.
Brewer has nothing to lose, as the trade numbers probably have nowhere to go but up.
The U.S. Census Bureau puts Ireland at just No. 24 on the list of places where Arizona exports its product. That's below Russia, Saudi Arabia and Iceland.
And Norway doesn't even make the Top 25.
Wilder said, though, there are signs of improvement.
He said total trade -- both exports and imports -- between Arizona and Norway was $31 million in 2008. By 2013 the figure had risen to $93 million.
"Sardines are not on the Top 10 list,'' he quipped.
There already is a Norwegian presence in Arizona, Wilder said. One is a company called Norsk Hydro, an aluminum supplier. And Aker Solutions, which provides products and services to the oil and gas industry, has employees in Tucson.
Exports to Norway navigational equipment, control instruments and communications gear, along with fabricated metals. Coming here from there, Wilder said, are "a lot of aerospace products and parts.''
But Wilder pointed out that total trade between the United States and Norway totals $350 billion.
"We'd like to get a bigger piece of that pie,'' he said.
The same situation exists with Ireland, said Wilder, with just a miniscule percentage of the national $376 billion annual trade attributable to Arizona.
Wilder acknowledged the kind of investments Brewer might be able to land are a far cry from the big fish that are normally sought, like a deal Brewer made to bring a plant to Mesa to manufacture the sapphire glass for some Apple products. But he said they are no less important.
"These add up,'' he said.
"Not every company is going to be a 5,000-job investment,'' Wilder continued. "But what is going to drive things, too, is getting a lot of these smaller companies to come here.''

When East Valley residents are looking for a brief getaway to decompress and escape the sweltering summer heat, they usually turn their eyes northward to the cooler climes of Prescott, Flagstaff or the Mogollon Rim. However, they’re doing themselves a disservice if they chose to ignore our neighbor to the south.
High school football season, that annual rite of fall, is upon us. The game is only part of the experience for football fans. It’s also about getting together with people in your community, before, during and after the contest.
