Have you given much thought to collecting Social Security? The answer probably depends on how old you are — but whatever your age, you’ll want to consider the best way of incorporating Social Security benefits into your retirement income strategy.
NEW YORK — Traditionally, the American male was measured against the stoic hero who shook off all doubts, vanquished all foes and offered women a muscular shoulder to cry on.
Ronald Reagan’s famous quote, “We declared war on poverty and poverty won,” has come in for some harsh criticism lately. For example, Linda Valdez of The Arizona Republic recently excoriated the Gipper for his “cynicism,” pointing out that a “great nation does more than make jokes at the expense of the poor.”
State lawmakers are moving to repeal major changes in voting laws made last year — and then reenacting at least some of them in a way to thwart a referendum drive.
Within our East Valley is a microcosm of a healthy community, a stronger nation. It’s an ageless pattern offering solutions to our national fiscal crisis, our narcissistic living and our growing proclivity for surrendering freedoms.
Looking for a terrific book to read during your holiday travels? Pick up “How the West Really Lost God.” It’s an insightful look at the link between the decline of the family and Christian religions in the Western World; a social shift that has touched every one of us.
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.
NEW YORK — Was a losing team bullied? Is your angry spouse a bully? How about that co-worker who's always criticizing you? Or the politicians who forced a government shutdown?
Having spent 20 years working with the black community as a counselor and therapist, I’d like to say that Linda Turley-Hansen is a sweetheart and means well. She is beautiful and intelligent, but unfortunately, lacks a spectrum of education that would facilitate her understanding of race.
Once a staple of pre-World War II culture, the multi-generational household is staging a comeback.
The recent editorial “SSDI is nothing but government social welfare,” (July 29) was misleading and does not tell the full story of the disability program. The article’s central claim about who qualifies for benefits is clearly contradicted by the facts. As an advocate for people with disabilities, I know firsthand how strict the disability criteria are. Most people who apply are denied, and only about 40 percent are awarded benefits even after all stages of appeal. Many beneficiaries are terminally-illl; about 1-in-5 male and 1-in-6 female beneficiaries die within five years of receiving benefits. Literally every day, I see people with significant disabilities who have been denied benefits.
I have never been one to consider my gender to be a factor when it comes to my career. I am a firm believer that my actions and work ethic bear a far greater impact on my success. I’m not saying that being a woman in business doesn’t change the game a bit — especially when it comes to how my actions are perceived — but it certainly has no place in my daily thought process or leadership efforts.

A guide to movies from a family perspective:
Anyone that thinks that racism does not exist in this country should now look at reality. Trayvon Martin was an unarmed teenage black man walking to his house in a neighborhood in Sanford, Fla. He was confronted by an armed neighborhood watch patrol who has been previously reporting nothing but innocent black walkers in the neighborhood. George Zimmerman was told not to follow this young teen, yet his racist instinct pushed in that he had to follow him because of nothing else but the color of his skin.
A recent General Mills Cheerios commercial has reminded us Americans (and those in other parts of the world) that race still causes severe social and political upset in 2013. A 30-second YouTube commercial featuring a young biracial child interacting with her white mother and black father has created a cyber firestorm of racially-charged attacks: “disgusting,” “racial genocide,” “anti-white,” and “want to vomit.”
The Valley of the Sun United Way is expecting at least 500 homeless guests to find aid and assistance at its Project Connect event Thursday, July 18, and is hoping its own volunteers will find a home as well: in the hearts of the guests they aid.
WASHINGTON — Several times every day, at airports across the country, passengers are trying to walk through security with loaded guns in their carry-on bags, purses or pockets, even in a boot. And, nearly a dozen years after 9/11, it's happening a lot more often.
