This last year was a busy one indeed for Mesa. With an estimated population reaching nearly half a million, leaders have taken steps to ensure Mesa will continue to grow as a force to be reckoned with, not only in the Valley, but in the state and beyond.

The downside of a cinematic musical is a lost connection between the players on stage and the audience. There's a vitality the filmed equivalent just cannot capture, the digital perfection eradicating the sense of spontaneity bred by the theater. Anything, for better or for worse, can happen on a live stage; films are incapable of reproducing that sense of danger.

Rotary started in February 1905 when Chicago lawyer Paul Harris and three friends met after dinner.

Eventually Rotary came to Arizona and in 1914, the 100th Rotary Club was organized in Phoenix.

Doug Ducey and Christine Jones are occupied in convincing Arizona that “immigration” is the only issue facing our Grand Canyon State. Both candidates desire to let President Obama know their personal feelings, and one (Christine Jones) thinks she can simply send the president of the United States an invoice to pay for a fence and more border patrol agents. The endorsement of Joe Arpaio ranting for Doug Ducey — a son of a police officer with no political background — indicates that the “Go Daddy Mama” and the “ice cream man” should not lead our state. On the other side of the fence, stands tall, a quiet gentleman, Scott Smith, who was Mesa’s long-term mayor; a leader served with excellence. This is what he did for Mesa as mayor: improved and revitalized Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport; in our worse economic recession, gathered the Chicago Cubs to remain in Mesa — in as much constructed a new baseball stadium; increased funding for Mesa’s metro rail system, linking to other transfer points for the East Valley; and negotiated with Apple to take over a new facility employing hundreds of new jobs. Smith was elected by President Obama to chair as president of the Conference for Mayors. Scott Smith is a proven leader; Arizonans can rest at ease while Smith governs our state. I moved into Mesa in 2008 — the worst time in our economy. Since I am able to see the improvements in Mesa, that leads me to believe a man such as Scott Smith will satisfy every requirement as Arizona’s next governor.
