Two weeks ago, most of the nation’s top wrestlers were in town and a good portion of Arizona’s top high school competitors were there watching what it takes to be an elite competitor like Jordan Burroughs.
BOSTON — Bean burgers, peanut butter substitutes and pre-sliced vegetable packets were on the menu Monday as school lunchroom managers from around the country sampled offerings in a hunt for fare that will meet stricter health mandates — without turning off sometimes-finicky students.
Has anyone noticed how professional unions have an opinion on a variety of political issues? Killing the unborn, for example, seems to be a major component of organized labors’ campaigns. Political advertising is expensive. So, where, exactly, have those big bucks come from?
The celebration of American independence and national identity continues in the East Valley this year, as Chandler, Gilbert, Mesa and Tempe will host fireworks displays on the Fourth at a low cost to taxpayers.
The state of Arizona is giving away free gas caps.
An open letter to John Sidney McCain. FYI, John, the Iraqi people lost Iraq, not President Obama. Hell, John, George W. Bush set the timetable to walk away; you are such a tool. John, we were in Iraq for 12-plus years, if after that time a nation can’t stand on its own feet and defend itself, after wasting billions of Americans’ tax dollars propping them up, all for nothing, then we shouldn’t go back.
Okay, so maybe “My eyes abhorred you” is a little harsh for the title of my review for Jersey Boys, the new film by director Clint Eastwood, based on the rise and fall of the sixties musical group, The Four Seasons; but dang it, it was just too good of a tagline to waste. The film is actually more boring than abhorrent, but it’s certainly easier to listen to than it is to watch.
The border has been all but erased. Mexico is not coming: It is here. This is not racist rant. My Mexican great-great-grandparents were here when the whole Southwest was still Mexican territory.
Kabuki Theater is often invoked when folks in a public arena play what the audience knows are pre-determined parts with a pre-determined outcome.
As monsoon season approaches, Chandler wants residents to help reduce stormwater pollution by bringing their household hazard waste to the city’s Household Hazardous Waste Collection Facility on the southwest corner of McQueen and Queen Creek roads.
Is this a tipping point for one of Arizona’s top-performing school districts? Has Gilbert Public Schools, justifiably proud of its many achievements and recognized for its students’ learning, come to a time when all of its successes might be negated by the behavior of just a few people?
Despite being a non-fan of writer/director/actor/comedian, Seth MacFarlane (the “brains” behind such farcical fare as Family Guy and Ted), I still had high hopes for his latest project, A Million Ways to Die in the West. I love westerns and the genre is pretty easy pickins when it comes to laughs, but unfortunately MacFarlane scrapes most his material from the bottom of the comedic bucket.
State senators voted unanimously this morning to scrap what has been Child Protective Services and replace it with an entirely new state agency.
Before I begin, I just want to take a moment to say thank you, to my amazing teachers and to my ceaselessly supportive parents and family. A special shoutout to my family members who have come from so far out of town to see me graduate today: You guys mean everything to me, and I certainly would not be here without your support- and I'm sure all of us out here tonight can express the same feelings towards all of our families. Could we have a round of applause for our families and supporters?
Good evening, graduates, faculty, and family. It’s an honor to be standing on this stage tonight, with the opportunity to speak to you all, but at the same time it’s very surreal. Everyone tells me that it won’t sink in that we’ve graduated for a few weeks, when we wake up and realize that we’re never coming back here. Say what you will about your high school experience — it’s different for everybody — but it is, undoubtedly, a one-of-a-kind experience that we will never get back.
WASHINGTON — House Republicans are proposing to let some schools opt out of healthier school lunch and breakfast programs if they are losing money.
A federal judge has rebuffed a last minute — and untimely — bid by the Arizona Green Party to get itself and its candidates on this year's ballot.
A proposed utility rate increase in Mesa will bring in an additional $13.9 million in revenue, the city says.
In the northern Arizona city of Williams, restaurant patrons don't automatically get a glass of water anymore. Residents caught watering lawns or washing cars with potable water can be fined. Businesses are hauling water from outside town to fill swimming pools, and building permits have been put on hold because there isn't enough water to accommodate development.
It was 50 years ago Barry Goldwater declared “extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice.” The political world gasped and he suffered a crushing defeat in the 1964 presidential election. Today, pundits and the “legacy media” commonly emphasize the importance of keeping those extremists marginalized.
Gilbert-area schools teamed with the East Valley Recycling Alliance, including the town of Gilbert, TREX and Bashas’ grocery stores, to “Bench the Bag” — a contest to collect soft plastic bags that can cause havoc to recycling machinery when placed in blue recycling containers.
They may not have needed it at that exact moment, but thousands of babies nonetheless received a fresh diaper — all at the same time — on April 26.
Early on I was afraid for this film – with every announcement of another character being added to the movie’s mix becoming another potentially convoluted dramatic layer – and sure enough, at 142 minutes, director Marc Webb has created a film that oozes superfluous storylines like a leaky web cartridge. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 still offers some spectacular action sequences, but its out-of-control narrative is far from being superior to the first film.
Celebrate Mesa is back at Pioneer Park, 526 E. Main St., on Saturday, April 26, from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.
