Roy Higgins, bartender at El Palacio Restaurant and Cantina in Chandler, said he enjoys serving drinks because of the great group of people he serves on a daily basis. But the job has been, at least, a small part of his life since early on.
“It got me through school, actually; through college,” Higgins said.
He recounted washing dishes in New Jersey as a teen and has “always kept a foot in the business.” After running his own personal training nutrition business for 10 years, the birth of his son and an unstable economy meant Higgins needed to seek more dependable work. That work was back behind the bar, this time at El Palacio, where he has worked for five years and managed for the past four.
“The people that come in are great,” he said. “It’s pretty amazing how many people I’ve met just standing behind that bar.”
El Palacio may well be a classic example of success in family-owned restaurants — a small chain that started in Bullhead City and now includes five other locations in the state, as well as one in Nevada.
“It’s family. Working for Anthony (Serrano) and the family, it’s fantastic,” Higgins said.
But what Higgins said he enjoys most is the great group of regulars that come in to El Palacio on a daily basis.
“It’s nice to see that when you work hard, people notice it,” he said. “It makes me happy, all the individuals that come in and come back. I’d like to say thank you to the people who took time to vote for me.”

JPs aren't required to be attorneys.
Tailgating is fine and dandy — and definitely fun if you’ve got the time — but if like us you’ve got five things to do before kickoff and no time for packing the cooler, here are five places to grab a bite before or after the big game.
Once again, in November, school districts throughout the state will have overrides on the ballot. Most, if not all, districts do this because the funding formula from the state is over 30 years old and does not meet the cost of doing business in the year 2014. Think about it; can you get a gallon of gas for 95 cents today? Well, that’s essentially what they are asking schools to do today.
Chandler youth ages 10-15 will have a chance to show off their cooking skills at Chandler’s annual Chuck Wagon Cook-Off on Nov. 9.

When East Valley residents are looking for a brief getaway to decompress and escape the sweltering summer heat, they usually turn their eyes northward to the cooler climes of Prescott, Flagstaff or the Mogollon Rim. However, they’re doing themselves a disservice if they chose to ignore our neighbor to the south.
Residents, please make sure your license plate bulbs are fresh and working properly, OK? The DUI task force in Tempe is not there to protect and serve. They are there to cold-call for their very lucrative business. It is ridiculous. I know three designated drivers who were completely sober who were in handcuffs over the weekend. A couple of them even blew 0.00. One of them caught the whole incident on video and the cop wouldn’t let him go until he erased the video (he waited and watched him do it before he would let him go).
High school football season, that annual rite of fall, is upon us. The game is only part of the experience for football fans. It’s also about getting together with people in your community, before, during and after the contest.

I grew up with a lot of religious rules. To violate these rules was to subject oneself to the judgment of God. If you had a fundamentalist upbringing, you may be familiar with some of these restrictions. No drinking, no smoking, no dancing, no playing cards or going to the movies, no mixed-bathing (a prospect that intrigued my teenage mind), no Sabbath-breaking (though we did not actually gather on the Sabbath), and absolutely no questioning of religious authority.
We generally assume two things about salsa that we shouldn't.
