Here are the Division IV All-Section girls basketball team as voted on by the section's coaches:
Arizona has enjoyed a slow, steady rise to track prominence nationwide. Much of that rise was aided by the Chandler girls program, which won two Nike Team National titles, and individuals like Billy Orman, Devon Allen and Bernie Montoya.
Two miles from my house at a Chandler Walmart, a man was shot and killed following a fight at the customer service counter on Sunday afternoon. The shooter claims self defense and that he was in fear for his life. We have heard this defense before.
Aria Anderson risked years of misfortune when she opened her sock monkey umbrella inside her hospital room during a late morning in January. She did so to hide from the group of strangers who came to see her, and the strategy proved effective; her unfurled shield more than covered the slight 6-year-old’s frame.

Comedian Brad Zimmerman weaves stories about family, career, childhood and misbegotten love into this show about his 29-year struggle to become an actor in New York while waiting tables to make a living.
It's been three years since southeast Valley Eagle Scout Spencer Zimmerman, then 13, took his friend Dayton Hayward, also 13, on the ride of his life. But this inspiring story of selflessness is worth retelling, especially during the holiday season.

To compensate for a lack of change at the top of the boys basketball landscape as the 2012-2013 season begins, the girls basketball world might pick up the slack.
“Sounds like George Zimmerman is the single biggest job creator for 911 operators. Glad I’m not the kind of guy that goes around saying, ‘I told you so.’”
“So 50 years ago we had the ‘peace march on Washington.’ Funny, 50 years ago I could walk the streets in my Midwestern hometown. Not today. Wonder why not.”
“I’m excited about Republicans taking the country over the fiscal cliff. The carnage from it will be like the mass suicide of millions of salmon fighting the current only to die. I hope they all hold hands and sing Kumbaya. The voters who don’t speak gerrymander will just say ADIOS!”
“Ordering the Federal Justice Department to help organize pro Trayvon Martin rallies, and having them search for another way to punish George Zimmerman when they could not prove him guilty, shows just how empty Obama’s (and the Democratic Party’s) promises of ‘justice’ to Hispanics (and to the American nation) have been. Obama is for himself first, last, and only.”
“In 2004, U.S. Senator Barack Obama co-sponsored a ‘Stand Your Ground’ law (SB-2386) that amended the Illinois Criminal Code in the U.S. Senate. Are ‘Stand Your Ground’ laws racist? The Hypocrite in Chief President Obama is now calling for a review of those kinds of laws that exist in about 30 states.”
Back in the early ‘90s, when I worked in London and wrote frequently about the hi-jinks of the monarchy, I tried in vain to understand why the British clung to such an archaic institution. But this morning, with the arrival of The Royal Baby, I finally get it. The House of Windsor gives the British permission to ignore their political and economic woes, to escape from themselves.
“Only in liberal America could a Latino kill an African American in self defense, be acquitted of murder by an all women jury, and still have the blame put on the white man!”
There are NO winners in the Zimmerman trial. Both sides are suffering. But where was the Hispanic community support?
“Bill Richardson (Commentary, July 17 Tribune) is wrong in claiming race is not a factor in the Martin verdict. Obviously if Zimmerman had ended up dead, and Martin the shooter, Martin would have been locked up for the rest of his life never to be heard from again. It would have been just one more shooting among many across the country that night. The real question in this case is: are we a nation of laws or a nation of vigilante justice? Does Florida’s stand your ground law allow someone like Zimmerman, patrolling the neighborhood with a big gun, appoint himself judge, jury and executioner?”

Dozens of people participated in a protest march in Phoenix on Monday, calling for federal civil rights charges to be filed against Florida neighborhood watch activist George Zimmerman.
Some Arizona lawmakers are willing to take another look at the state's "stand your ground'' law in the wake of the Trayvon Martin shooting and trial in Florida but are deeply divided whether the statute needs revision.
John McCain, appearing on CNN's "State of the Union,'' said he thinks the Florida teen, shot to death by George Zimmerman, got justice.
