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.
The state House voted unanimously Tuesday to encourage more high schoolers to take computer science courses.
Robert De Niro is a ruthless gangster; John Cusack is experiencing motel hell; a hot hooker with a heart of gold is on the run; a satchel bag with mysterious contents. Haven’t we seen all this before? The Bag Man desperately borrows from dozens of other dark and gritty crime-thriller films, but, unfortunately, it is more ‘bore’ than noir.
Gilbert Christian girls basketball coach Darryl Young took a few minutes to talk about winning a second state championship in four years after losing a big piece of the puzzle for the year on the first day of the season.
WASHINGTON — Pregnant women, mothers and children who get federal assistance with their grocery bills will now be able to buy more whole-grain foods, yogurt, fish, fruits and vegetables.
DALLAS — Travelers take note: The economics of earning free airline flights are changing.
LOS ANGELES — With Darren Aronofsky's "Noah" and Ridley Scott's "Exodus" preparing to duke it out for Old Testament auteur supremacy, Hollywood's religious renaissance gets off to a none-too-spectacular start with a chewed-over New Testament appetizer called "Son of God." A clumsily edited feature-length version of five episodes from History's hugely popular 10-hour miniseries "The Bible," this stiff, earnest production plays like a half-hearted throwback to the British-accented biblical dramas of yesteryear, its small-screen genesis all too apparent in its Swiss-cheese construction and subpar production values. Yet while Jesus' teachings have been reduced to a muddle of kindly gestures and mangled Scriptures, the scenes of his betrayal, death and resurrection crucially retain their emotional and dramatic power, which the charitable viewer may deem atonement enough for what feels, in all other respects, like a cynical cash grab.
Pick an object: broad side of a barn. The ocean. For whatever reason, the Valley Christian girls basketball team couldn't hit anything beyond the rim with a basketball on Saturday night in the Division III state championship game.
“I have had it with these ‘monkey fighting’ SMSs on this ‘Monday to Friday’ plane!” No, it’s not a line from the latest Liam Neeson action vehicle, Non-Stop, but it could have been. There are so many ways one could slam this new film, but, surprisingly, despite its clichés and convoluted plot, this is still a thrilling and fun time at the movies.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Ten years after "The Passion of the Christ," Jesus is returning to movie theatres with a gentler, more inclusive approach.
The state Senate sent Gov. Jan Brewer controversial legislation billed as protecting religious freedom on Monday even as two more senators who voted last week for SB 1062 now say that was a mistake.
To be perfectly upfront, I’ve never been a huge Kevin Costner fan. That’s not to say he hasn’t been good in a few movies such as “Field of Dreams.” He’s even directed some great movies…well one great movie at least. Then in the late nineties, Costner seemed to go on a major ego trip, constantly casting himself as mankind’s savior in movies like “Waterworld” and “The Postman.” Now he’s riding the comeback train with effective work in “Hatfields & McCoys” and “Man of Steel.” “3 Days to Kill” is unfortunately a step backwards for Costner. It won’t kill his career again, but it certainly won’t help it either.
The Town of Queen Creek was once considered the far reaching outskirts of Phoenix, but this small town oasis – now a thriving east valley community – embraces its farming heritage while carefully watching over its growth and development. Business and town leaders seek to preserve the Town’s family-friendly, small-town spirit while providing economic opportunities and a high quality of life for residents.
Two years ago the Republican-controlled Legislature sought to get voters to kill the Citizens Clean Elections Act, claiming it's wrong for politicians to get public money. Now some of those same GOP lawmakers want to belly up to the bar and get handouts of public dollars for everything from sending out communications to constituents to buying tickets for special events.
What would 2014 and beyond look like if we as people decided to generously share both our life in faith and money with no expectation of return? Well, it would set us free to experience blessing. A few days ago a total stranger shared generously with me. When I tried to thank her and give back, she refused with a smile on her faith. It caught me off guard. It was an action that was so counter cultural. We live in a world where we give and usually expect something in return. In our popular market driven worldview, our money and faith lives are linked in that they are both means of reciprocity. I trade my time and talent to get money, and then I trade money to get what I need or want.
I know shopping online is the craze nowadays, but it can be bland. I recall that thrill in trying out the latest gadgets at the local Five & Dime, the intrigue I felt in browsing through that Army Surplus store, the entice in a candy shop, and the joy I had in playing around at the toy store.
State lawmakers are moving to make sure you know what to have on hand when electronic Armageddon strikes.
You’re probably familiar with the old Yogi Berra quote, “The future ain’t what it used to be.” Well, if Yogi saw the new RoboCop film he’d probably revise that statement as “the future” in this film is pretty much the same as it was envisioned in 1987 – just not as much fun to watch.
The number of Arizona high school students scoring well enough on Advanced Placement exams to earn college credit almost has doubled over the last decade.
WASHINGTON — Columbus McKinney is taking his fifth Advanced Placement course at Woodrow Wilson High School in Washington, undeterred even though he didn't score high enough to get college credit on two of the AP classes he took previously.
Lights off and no customers. It's exactly what Gary Gerbers was afraid would happen when he got a call during the morning rush saying he needed to pay the electricity bill at Cindy's Arizona Cafe.
