On Wednesday, in the Bass Pro Shops at the Mesa Riverview Shopping Center, the Phillips family gathered with distant relatives in a meeting room upstairs.

I have been honored with the opportunity to welcome each and every one of you to the graduation of the class of 2014. At the beginning of this school year, a group called POS MEGA united under one question: what makes a person great? Is it what one says that makes one great? Is it what one once did? Or what one believes and thinks? Or the ability to avoid failure?
No one can blame Gareth Edwards for admittedly feeling nervous when asked to helm a remake of the biggest monster movie of all time. Sure, the only other film he had directed happened to be 2010's "Monsters." But this time, it was Godzilla.

To see the future of aviation and the undisputed standard for international air superiority at work, Arizonans will soon only have to look up. The F-35 Lightning II has arrived at Luke Air Force Base, and in a year’s time, Luke’s integrated training center will start the work of teaching the Air Force’s best pilots how to master the F-35 and leverage its unmatched combat capabilities in defense of freedom — both at home and abroad. I am not overstating facts when I say the skies over the West Valley are slated to become the most impressive classroom in the world.
NEW YORK — From tablecloths to duvet covers, iPhone cases to wallpaper and startling calf-skin wall hangings, the ancient Japanese resist-dying technique of shibori has gone mainstream. Vera Wang, Ralph Lauren, Eileen Fisher, Levi's and innumerable fiber artists are breathing new life into the craft.
On Dec. 2, 1941, the following statement by Diplomat Hugh Grant appeared in the New York Times; “If the Japanese really want war, now is the time to let them have it. I believe we could smash them within a period of a few months with our superior air and naval forces.”
Half a century ago, Sid Davis was the first journalist to learn John Kennedy had died. Instead of breaking the biggest the biggest news story in the world, he waited because he wanted to make sure he was right. It is hard to image a journalist making the same choice nowadays amid our modern cacophony of inaccurate reporting, but perhaps Davis has something to teach us.
NEW YORK — Last Thanksgiving Day, Kimberly Mudge Via's mother, sister and nieces left in the middle of their meals to head for the mall.
Seven years ago, director Paul Greengrass gave us “United 93.” Greengrass’ vision was bold and pulled no punches, easily making it the best post-9/11 film to date. Everything Greengrass brought to the table in “United 93” is displayed in “Captain Phillips.” This is another intensely shot, authentically edited true story about ordinary people forced to step up during a catastrophe. Is it the masterpiece that “United 93” was? Not quite, but that’s a really tough act to beat.
If you saw Paul Greengrass's "United 93," a terrifying depiction of one of the doomed flights on 9/11, you know this director can evoke a harrowing, real-life event like few others. In fact, you may not have recovered yet from the experience.
A nearby, decades-old military operation little known by locals is coming to an end, but not without skeptics who say satellites are now left vulnerable.
“So, they had a nasty shooting in D.C. on Monday. I wonder how that can happen. I thought the liberals banned owning guns there. Another ‘gun free’ zone! Yeah the law abiding are disarmed while the criminals are free to mow them down. The liberal mind set baffles me!”
“It’s that time of year when politicians everywhere live on a food stamp budget for a week and then whine and moan about how hard it was. Guess what? I am not on food stamps, but my family has less than that to spend on food. We eat healthy and do just fine. $29-$47 a week per person for food would be a luxury.”
HARTFORD, Conn. — Connecticut is a small state that can be crossed in a matter of hours, depending on traffic, offering relatively easy access for travelers looking to visit various corners of the state. One compact area packed with attractions is the southeastern region, which includes Long Island Sound and a popular shoreline state park, Yale University's hometown of New Haven, sites related to New England's maritime and military industry, and the University of Connecticut in the eastern part of the state. Here are five free things to do and see there.
With another violent mass shooting at the navy yard in D.C. we must again look at why our sick society continues to ignore the grave society gun disease we have in this Country. This recent mass shooting is the result of a ignorant society doing nothing about the problem. This is not a Democratic or Republican political issue nor a right or left issue. It is a disease that is killing many of our Citizens. The bloodshed from gun violence and mental health issues is on all of our hands, since we as voters continue to elect Political Officials that consistently vote against any kind of gun control. We as a society should be saying enough is enough.

As we mourn the loss of 19 of our courageous Firefighters, we should remember them all as our Navy Seals. They go to the front lines to fight the enemy. Our Navy Seals are the best of the best. The same should be said for our Hotshots that fight these tragic fires in our country. They are on the front line in a war with a deadly enemy. They are our warriors just like the Navy Seals. The Hotshots that died in this tragic fire were in a war fighting for all of us. The Hotshots still up there in that war we have to pray for.

NEW YORK — Red, white and blue are at the heart of the Fourth of July holiday. Mix them. Embrace them. Wear them — and do it again on July 5. You can do it over and over again all year long.
Yes, it is possible. You can pursue the American dream. And maybe even be on your way to achieving it by age 11. That won’t necessarily stop comments by racists or cretins who think it’s cool and intelligent to stereotype, belittle and insult. But they can’t stop a proud and determined kid from marching, head held high, straight towards that American dream.
