“What an amazing man. Senator Rand Paul wants to make Bill Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky a campaign issue if Hillary runs for president. So if he runs on his own accomplishments, he should show fear. Little dogs bark loudest when they are scared.”

Whether on Facebook or Twitter, Instagram or LinkedIn, we are plastering snapshots of our lives all over the Internet.
Common sense dictates that our police must be solving a much higher percent of homicides today as compared to the 1960s. After all, today’s police departments have access to DNA evidence that didn’t exist during the 1960s. And police departments today can run finger prints through high tech computers and find an exact match out of 100s of millions finger prints on file. Back in the 1960s this technology did not exist.
It starts with a name, those Ancestry.com commercials promise. That, and a paid subscription to the site.

A late “freedom” game addition for both teams to help fill out the schedule, Shadow Ridge is a new school in the far west side city of Surprise (65 miles one-way to/from Williams Field according to Google) but returned most of its lineup from last year’s 7-4 squad, and it’s worked well. The Stallions are 7-1, including four wins by a touchdown or less and victories coming against Glendale Cactus, Glendale Deer Valley and Peoria Sunrise Mountain. Shadow Ridge is led by a solid defense and RB Chris Salsberry (1,497 yards, 21 touchdowns and 7.7 yards per carry). Salsberry has even thrown two touchdown passes in his only two passing attempts this season. But Williams Field is on a roll after finishing strong against Saguaro in a loss, then hammering Queen Creek last week. The Stallions have an elite running back, but don’t have much of a passing game and one-dimensional usually doesn’t work against Williams Field’s defense (ask Queen Creek). The Stallions also haven’t seen an offense quite as good as the Black Hawks.
Prediction: Williams Field 38, Shadow Ridge 21

Owning and running a small or medium sized business is hard. I’ve been there. When you run your own business, the focus is on product, orders, sales, licenses, rent, staffing, and other issues large and small. Building a website seems like a daunting task that all too often is delayed. In fact, a majority of small businesses do not have a web site. But, businesses need to be where their customers are, and today, they are online.
