If buying a new home is on your 2015 agenda, it may be to your advantage to sell your present home during the holiday season. Whatever a buyer’s motivation, a holiday sales strategy means one thing for sellers: Demand for homes can increase at a time when inventory is traditionally low. Here are a few ideas to consider when weighing whether this route is for you.

In Kathleen Murphy’s Inbox letter on Nov. 30, she’s correct that many stupid voters don’t do, or are too lazy to do, research. They get their info from “conservative TV or radio”? What about ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, HLN, MSNBC or “The Daily Show” and “The Colbert Report”? Are they all conservative? I don’t think so.
PHOENIX -- A veteran state lawmaker is pushing his colleagues to triple the wages of some Arizonans. The issue is what is paid to minimum security inmates who are allowed to work outside the prison walls.
One of the most common questions that I get asked from a new student is: “What’s the quickest way I can improve my scores?” What people don’t realize is that 70 percent of the shots that are hit on the golf course are from inside 100 yards. Short game is the one area of golf that most golfers neglect to practice. If you were to focus more attention on your putting, you’ll definitely see an improvement in your scores. But putting doesn’t have to be limited to just on the green. Have you ever thought about using a putter when you are off the green in a chipping situation? It is probably the only shot in golf that isn’t played enough. Many players reach for a lofted club anywhere near the green. But if you think putting from off the green is a shot only played by beginners, you’re making a big mistake. The beauty of putting from off the green is that it’s very straightforward. There’s no need to play a delicate chip with a wedge — a shot that can so easily go wrong, particularly if your confidence isn’t sky high.

One person is dead after a fire consumed a trailer in Mesa on Thursday morning, according to the Rural Metro Fire Department.
The letter from Mr. Murphy about stupid Americans was correct to an extent. Really stupid Americans are too dumb to vote. Our biggest problem is those who are willfully ignorant and too lazy to research anything. They get their information from conservative TV or radio, or simply vote the same way they have always voted — by party. That is why we had an election in which the Republicans won seats in Congress, but “liberal issues” such as higher minimum wage, background checks, reproductive rights and legalization of marijuana, among others, did pass. So it seems that American voters know what they want but don’t know who will give it to them.
Like in any medical field, early treatment is important in ensuring results. So when should orthodontic treatment first be considered for children? According to Team Orthodontics' Dr. Danyluk, who closely follows the guidelines set by the American Association of Orthodontics, Phase I treatment for children should generally begin around age 7, when several permanent teeth in most children have come in. This allows Team Orthodontics to effectively evaluate a child's orthodontic condition.
