When I first moved to the Valley of the Sun in 2000, the PBS TV channel, KAET, was a “powerhouse.” The best TV programming on local television. “MacNeil/Lehrer NewsHour” gave the best (unbiased) analysis of the day’s news events. “Masterpiece Theatre” and “Masterpiece Mystery” were “must watch” week in and week out. Wonderful foreign films were shown that could be seen nowhere else on the Valley of the Sun’s TV channels. We viewers didn’t know it be we were seeing the “beginning of the end” for KAET.
A whole new community is springing up in the southeastern part of Mesa and drawing a lot of attention. The Eastmark development, managed by DMB Associates Inc., is increasingly active and a lot more is going on there than Valley residents may realize.
It took all of two seconds for me to lose any enthusiasm for the “Expendables 3,” and an additional three seconds to realize how stupid the additional two-plus more hours of screen time would be. It came from on-screen text to inform the audience the train they’re seeing on screen is an “armored prison transport,” which is made quite clear once star Sylvester Stallone and his compatriots start shooting the heck out of that thing. What that reveals is a supercilious attitude of the audience's ability to decipher the action on screen – a habit the filmmakers fall back on repeatedly – and an overarching inability to do something interesting with staid material.

Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake received praise from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce for the second year in a row in regards to his business-friendly voting record.
Early voting is underway in our Tempe City Council election. We have incumbents and challengers, a choice that comes down to whether we are satisfied with politics as usual. I believe we can do so much better and will give two of my votes to Lauren Kuby and David Schapira, both seasoned community leaders who will look at issues with fresh eyes.
This letter is to inform the voters in LD18 about an experience I had with Rep. Jeff Dial.
While Pinal County “Sheriff Underpants” Paul Babeu has been out on the campaign trail touting gubernatorial candidate and “forensic accountant” Christine Jones, Pinal County Jail employees have been sweating bullets worrying about whether or not they’re going to have a job. All that thanks to the long running dispute between their boss and the federal government over the cost to house federal prisoners in the county jail and any number of other Babeu made up reasons to bad mouth the feds.

Chandler residents will soon see an increase in their property taxes.
The race for who could be a heartbeat away from governor is being financed largely by a “dark money” group that will not disclose its donors.
When the name “Falcon Field Airport” is mentioned, the next thing people often ask is, “Isn’t that place getting shut down?” Nothing could be further from the truth.
