NEW YORK — Today's travelers want to be comfortable, organized and connected. With those themes in mind, here are some gift ideas, starting with suggestions from three folks who travel for a living.
At the Corporation Commission hearings (last) week, I saw dozens of APS solar customers stand up and present their monthly bills, showing exactly how much they pay to support the grid. And on Tuesday, APS finally admitted that solar customers on average pay $71 a month — twice what I pay for my apartment.
Apple Inc. qualifies for a $10 million grant from the Arizona Commerce Authority if it opens its proposed new plant in Mesa and meets job creation and capital investment targets.
A potential impediment to Apple developing a facility in Mesa was cleared on Monday night after the Gilbert Public Schools Governing Board agreed to sign a letter of no objection to allow for the re-zoning of the property for tax purposes.
The deal that would bring Apple to Mesa has hit a snag due to a decision by the Gilbert Public Schools Governing Board to hold off on an agreement that would provide incentives to the company and provide the district millions in tax revenue.
In addition to teaching their students each day, writing lesson plans and connecting with parents, most Arizona teachers have gone through a myriad of district- and state-mandated training sessions. Many give up weekends or evenings to attend these trainings to better prepare themselves to provide the best opportunities for our students. For some, that would be sufficient. For others, it’s only the beginning.
One of the world’s largest technology companies will build a brand-new manufacturing facility in Mesa that will add hundreds of permanent jobs and more than 1,000 temporary construction positions to the region.

Three Higley School District governing board members, Venessa Whitener, Kim Anderson, and Denise Standage, voted on Sept. 10 to accept $750,000 from the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors to construct and operate a Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) fueling station. The reason given is to reduce air pollution caused by buses. Good grief. This unnatural fixation that we are dying in the streets from environmental catastrophe is insane. Board member Jake Hoffman tried in vain to table the vote for further research, presenting an analysis which shows that it will end up costing taxpayers $2.3 million. For example, the district doesn’t even own any CNG vehicles and will have to replace 62 buses and 53 fleet vehicles, which will take years. These three board members are not just misusing taxpayer dollars, but they are doing it without performing due diligence. They are also dabbling in an unproven industry about which they know zilch, and where they have no business, plus they are competing with the private market (Clean n Green is less than five miles from the intended site). The MCBOS will be voting on the acceptance of Higley’s grant application on Sept. 23, so this can be stopped. According to Mr. Hoffman, CNG vehicles represent less than four one-hundredths of one percent of all vehicles registered in the United States. Education should not be the petri dish for unproven, currently unsustainable commodities.

The Arizona Corporation Commission has a responsibility to Arizona citizens and utility ratepayers to decide cases based on their merits and the facts. Tom Patterson in his Aug. 14 commentary ignored the facts in his attempt to sway public opinion in favor of an APS proposal before the Commission that would change the rules regarding solar energy.

I went out to greet Obama at his speech at Desert Vista High School on Tuesday with one simple message: reject the Keystone XL Pipeline. His speech was about housing, but this affects my home, and yours. The 181 million metric tons of carbon dioxide emitted each year as a result of the pipeline will exacerbate the drought, record heat, and wildfires that already plague our state.
