Nearly a year ago, I hosted the first Downtown Development Summit at the Mesa Arts Center. We invited developers and financiers from Arizona and around the country to come see what downtown Mesa had to offer. We highlighted development opportunities and showcased available properties through downtown and along the light rail corridor.
Saying Child Protective Services has been “hiding or not disclosing” information, Gov. Jan Brewer on Monday a special panel of current and former legislators and outsiders to take a closer look at the agency.
What’s with all the political posturing and saber-rattling by our “desk jockey admirals and generals” in the House and Senate? We see them rabidly calling for everything short of “carpet bombing” Tehran and turning it into another Dresden. Of course, none (or almost none) of the military-aged sons (or daughters for that matter) of these politicians have ever been in or ever will be in the U.S. military and have to fight in the wars that their mommies and daddies vote for.
Being critical of President Obama’s push for a peaceful end to Iran’s Nuclear ambitions is plain ignorant. Our President does not want war. He is giving peace a chance rather than military strikes and another war. If it does not work and Iran fails to abide by the peaceful treaty, we can then act. I do think, however, if Israel feels any type of threat from Iran, they will act anyway and we may not have any say in the conflict.
“Rod is up to his old tricks, only telling half the story. But he admitted he didn’t know anything about the fair tax so he looked it up. No doubt on one of his extreme left leaning websites. (Hey, like the commercial says ‘it’s on the internet so it has to be true’). One of the many ‘small’ details he fails to mention is you would not pay payroll, or federal income taxes anymore. For the first time you would keep what you earn. There are many other benefits and everyone would pay their fair share. ... But wait ... where have I heard that before?”
“I wonder just how thick the lefts rose colored glasses have to be before they can finally see just how deceitful this administration is?”
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.
I was 4 ½ years old when I delivered my first news report.
PHOENIX — Gov. Jan Brewer on Friday rejected calls by some Democrats for a special legislative session to give more cash to the beleaguered Child Protective Services.
Half a century ago, Sid Davis was the first journalist to learn John Kennedy had died. Instead of breaking the biggest the biggest news story in the world, he waited because he wanted to make sure he was right. It is hard to image a journalist making the same choice nowadays amid our modern cacophony of inaccurate reporting, but perhaps Davis has something to teach us.
“Why do some people think that human rights and civil rights are the same thing? Everyone has human rights, just by being human. Civil rights are the rights of a person who has legal citizenship to a specific country. If you are not a citizen, then you do not have the privileges of these civil rights. Civil rights activists should be backing the rights of citizens not the illegal immigrants, who have only human rights.”
PHOENIX — Close to one out of every 12 complaints of child abuse since January were not investigated because Child Protective Services workers simply decided, based on the information from a phone call, that they were not important enough to follow through.
NEW YORK — Last Thanksgiving Day, Kimberly Mudge Via's mother, sister and nieces left in the middle of their meals to head for the mall.
PHOENIX – Saying it's a matter of the state's rights, Attorney General Tom Horne wants the U.S. Supreme Court to let Arizona cut Medicaid funding to Planned Parenthood simply because that organization also provides abortions with private dollars.

“Another reason for low health care sign-up numbers: We’re a nation of procrastinators. How many of us turn in anything early? We are a country that sees a deadline and thinks: I bet I can turn it in a little late.”
Tired of getting email solicitations from Nigerian princes and Romanian bank presidents promising you millions of dollars if you will only give them your birthday, your Social Security number and nank account information? Not to worry. Those pesky emails will soon become a thing of the past. Why you may ask? Well because you will soon be giving all that “private” information and “more” to Obamacare’s so-called “navigators”.
Advocates for Comprehensive Immigration Reform (English translation: amnesty) like to point out that immigrants in the past have flocked to America and made important contributions to our nation. That’s true, but the America of 1913 was different from 2013 in ways that greatly affect the probability that immigrants will become contributing citizens.
One can only suspect the reason for Obama’s delay of the ACA until 2014 is to bolster the Democrats’ chances at the polls come next November. By then they’ll be singing, “Everything’s Up To Date In Kansas City (Washington)” — whether it is or not. And of course, Dems will believe it.
What else can you do but chuckle at some of the “letter writers” and their devotion to ridiculous ideas they believe will “save America’ from succumbing to the disease of “socialism?”
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Every year about this time, millions of turkeys are fattened up so American households can chow them down. But in "Free Birds," two brave turkeys make it their mission to travel back in time and get their breed off the Thanksgiving menu.
