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.

Chaplain is all ready in his black and white tuxedo, but has nowhere to go. He is a beautiful boy as you can see and volunteers agree he is a busy boy. He enjoys his play toys so his new family will hopefully provide some for him and not mind that he has an active schedule.
I love puzzles. Crosswords, brainteasers, and search-a-words to be sure, but nothing beats an old fashioned jigsaw puzzle with about gazillion pieces spilling out of the box. Right now there is a monster-sized puzzle strewn across our family’s dining room table. I have been persistently working on it for so long that I can’t remember the last evening we ate dinner at the table.

Kermit was originally found as a stray and brought in to the Yuma Humane Society. He is estimated to be about 6 years old. The guess on what he is … Chihuahua mix? All that is known for sure is he’s absolutely adorable. Kermit needs a child-free home as he has a bit of sensitivity when being handled. Don’t let that scare you though … the volunteers that work with Kermit at the shelter can go over/explain what exactly that means. He is a very sweet boy. He is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and microchipped. Kermit’s adoption fee is $125.
It is election season once again and with that comes ubiquitous campaign signs filling nearly every street corner throughout Mesa. Despite Arizona Revised Statute 16-1019 and Mesa City Code Title 11-41-7G and 8-6-F&S, which prohibit campaign signs within 15 feet of the face of a curb or the edge of the pavement, almost all of these signs are within 4-5 feet, thus creating traffic hazards as motorists struggle to see cross traffic through the kaleidoscope of vision-restricting banners and signs. In addition, these laws regulate the number of signs that can be placed on any one corner, yet most street corners in Mesa contain more than a dozen signs, and some nearly two dozen, all jammed together, one on top of the other.
