“If you’re a conservative and stop to rescue victims in a car accident like Mitt Romney’s son did, you’re mocked and ridiculed by those on the left. If you’re a liberal and kill someone with your car, then run away, you’re elected senator of Massachusetts like Ted Kennedy!”
“If corporations are people too, and should have religious rights, how come the Bible has never spoke of a corporation making it to heaven in the form of a holy spirit. It’s an insult to all those who believe and makes their prayers seem cheap.”
The background information that outlines the reasons why Tina Harguess won the Arizona Charter Schools Association Teacher of the Year award credits her for setting high standards, maintaining a similar standard of expectations and for collaborating with the rest of the staff. The thing is, Harguess doesn’t believe any of the educational activities she engages in are any different than what any other teacher currently accomplishes.
A Belgian drama with bluegrass music may seem like an unlikely combo, but director Felix van Groeningen pulls it off spectacularly in his heart-wrenching new film “The Broken Circle Breakdown,” which is already garnering whispers of Academy Award recognition. While other foreign-language Oscar hopefuls such as “Wadjda” and “The Hunt” have come and gone from theaters (with others such as “Gloria” and “The Past” not making their way to Phoenix until early 2014), “Broken Circle” is arriving this month, opening at Harkins Camelview 5 in Scottsdale this Friday, Dec. 6.

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.”
“The unfortunate thing about the Tea Party is not their constant attacks on the anything that the President may propose; it is their desire to bring down the federal government. This is a betrayal of not only the voters who elected them but the whole country. It is also a betrayal of their oath to defend the Constitution. These people don’t about how much suffering they may cause; the important thing is they accomplish their goal.”

At this time of year it’s quite natural for people to start thinking about the spiritual.
Who says that when our life is over that we’re forgotten, that our music dies?
Teens and tweens — and even those who are too young to be an ‘een at all — are falling prey to a new drug, one that they can access free, at their fingertips on their cell phones or by hitting the button on their TV remote.
I’m not sure if letter writer Jeff Smith is dumb, devious or confused. Maybe all three.
Admittedly, it is a little early to start talking about Christmas; Halloween is barely a week away, and Thanksgiving still awaits in the middle of the holiday sandwich. And there’s some reflection of that fact in Aaron Leach’s front yard in Mesa on Oct. 21, with several strands of light and inflatable ornaments unpacked but strewn all over the brown ground.
“How ironic that the same Democrats that chastised the Republicans for demanding changes to Obamacare are now demanding changes to Obamacare!”
It’s a dream for bodybuilders across America to compete at the national level. It takes a lot of dedication, hard work and sweat. Some, never make it. But those who do, never look back.
It starts with a name, those Ancestry.com commercials promise. That, and a paid subscription to the site. Not to mention the patience to sit hunched at a screen, following cybertrail after cybertrail ever deeper into a rabbit hole of genealogy information that’s difficult to know for sure is truly your own.
Long before the 20-second sound bite was even a gleam in CNN founder Ted Turner’s eye, Cliff Hillegass began serving the needs of the impatient, the overwhelmed, the confused, or just in a hurry among us all.

The Chandler-Hamilton game went as this rivalry tends to go for 47 1/2 minutes on Friday night.
Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s response to being monitored comes as no surprise to those of us who know Joe. And it does not surprise his attorney. When Joe was first elected, he found himself in attendance at a federal court hearing where he and the county board of supervisors were being monitored under the terms of a consent decree involving his predecessor regarding jail conditions. Tent City was Joe’s response. But the idea was all his attorney’s. However Joe took the credit. I will never forget what Joe said to his attorney. “Where does this judge think he can order me around?” Defiant to a fault, it is high time this community sent Joe packing.
Despite deep roots in the East Valley, Xico Arte and Cultura art gallery is relocating from downtown Chandler to Phoenix at the end of the month and leaving behind its signature patchwork “rug.”
