Picking a bourbon isn't the one-two-three choice it used to be. There's been a boom in brands, especially from small, premium producers, not to mention a flood of new styles. Will you go for a barrel-aged version? Honey flavored? How about a bourbon that's been aged at sea?
“Biden, Kerry and Obama had it right in 2006. It would be foolish to invoke the nuclear option in the Senate. I guess Obama’s greed for power has overtaken his intelligence. That’s okay, everyone now should know his true goal is to be king, not president. History will remove the upper case and remember him as ‘president.’”

PASADENA, Calif. —
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.

KENOSHA, Wis. — When the auto plant here closed, this prosperous Wisconsin port city on Lake Michigan lost more than just its largest employer. Its sense of vitality seemed to drain away, and city leaders set out to find something that would inject life into the brick-storefront downtown while the economy went through a transition.

No. 8 Canyon del Oro at No. 1 Williams Field (Div. III): Thanks to a 99-yard scoring pass allowed, an offsides call in the final minute which could have given the ball back — and what Higley felt were blown calls between a touchdown and fumble — Tucson Canyon del Oro held on to edge Higley last week, setting up this matchup. It stands to reason, however, that based on recent trends, CDO has little chance against Williams Field, which blew out Higley a couple weeks ago. The Black Hawks passed the first test with ease in life after QB Jeddediah Fagg (broken collarbone) as Cole Patterson had a big night against Avondale Agua Fria (8 of 12 for 189 yards passing and 3 touchdowns). The Black Haws’ running game and defense are too good here, and they’ll march onto the semifinals. Sooner or later, the Black Hawks will get another Queen Creek-Saguaro-Desert Edge matchup and be pushed to their limit, but not yet.
Prediction: Williams Field 41, Canyon del Oro 17
