NOGALES, Mexico — A Valley woman held in a Mexico jail for a week on a drug-smuggling charge was freed and traveled back to the U.S. after a court reviewed her case, including key security footage, and dismissed the allegations.
Boz Scaggs knows he has a reputation for being something of a perfectionist. The casually stylish singer-songwriter recalls the endless tinkering and expansive budgets that went into making his multiplatinum 1970s albums “Silk Degrees” and “Down Two Then Left.”
“Reveille” mini camps offer a wake-up call for addicts, their families and helpers; while a two-hour workshop for couples provides the means for “Reunification.”

“The NRA proposes putting a school official through 60 hours of weapons of training for school security. There is an old adage that says (A Jack of all trades is master of none). Does anyone really want to put the life of their small child in the hands of a master of none?”
"Blood-drenched" barely begins to describe Fede Alvarez's remake of "Evil Dead," a gore-for-broke affair that strips the flesh off Sam Raimi's cult-beloved comic-horror franchise and exposes the demons at its core. The presence of Raimi, original collaborator Rob Tapert, and star Bruce Campbell as producers should give the faithful permission to attend what would otherwise smell like a shameless exploitation of the 1981 film, but the high production values and nonstop action offered here should also please younger genre fans who've never bothered to rent it.
LOS ANGELES — A grave 12-year-old African girl, abducted from her village by vicious armed rebels and forced to wage war as a child soldier, guides the viewer through the horrors of Canadian director Kim Nguyen's engrossing Oscar-nominated drama "War Witch." Managing to be neither sentimental nor sensationalistic, the film tells its story from the heart, and from the simple, straightforward viewpoint of young heroine Komona, warmly played by the talented Rachel Mwanza in her screen debut.
Nogales -- For the third time in about a week, border agents have arrested a woman trying to walk into southern Arizona with heroin duct-taped under their bra.

It's easy to understand why Hollywood loves doing business with author Nicholas Sparks. His books are huge best-sellers, and several of the films adapted from his novels - "Message in a Bottle," ''The Notebook," and "Dear John" - have achieved impressive box office grosses. The latest Sparks adaptation, "Safe Haven," will probably continue his winning streak, especially with its Valentine's Day opening pegged to lure female fans. A thriller element that has not been present in earlier Sparks movies is designed to draw reluctant male viewers to see the picture, but they won't respond with the same enthusiasm as his core audience of woozy romantics.
It has been performed by the likes of Bob Dylan and Neil Diamond, and appeared everywhere from the 2012 Olympic Games to “South Park.” No longer just a musical staple of Jewish weddings and bar mitzvahs, “Hava Nagila” has become a global phenomenon that has captivated the masses with its simple message of happiness and gratitude.
“To the person who stated that negative comments about President Obama shouldn’t be printed in the Vent. Apparently you have forgotten how Democrats, far left liberals, and the liberal press treated President Bush. He was the butt of rude and demeaning jokes by so-called comedians, called lots of horrible names by the press, and verbally attacked by liberal talk show hosts. He, too, deserved respect just because he was the President of the United States. It is no wonder young people today have a problem respecting authority. Look at the examples set for them.”
Ted Simmon, the TV Host of KAET’s “Horizon” TV Program asks “What is wrong with Arizona?”

It is a universally acknowledged truth that a Jane Austen story, with several film and television versions, must be in want of a musical re-write. At least Paul Gordon, the creative genius behind “Jane Austen’s Emma,” on stage through Jan. 20 at Herberger Center Theater, thinks so. His hilariously dazzling production, produced by Arizona Theatre Company, makes it difficult for Austen novices or fans to disagree.
If your son or daughter uses marijuana, where would you prefer they purchase it from? Drug dealers who also sell other drugs like cocaine and heroin, or medical marijuana cardholders?
The organization that funded Arizona's 2010 medical marijuana initiative says lawmakers who now want voters to scrap the program are missing the point of a study on teen use.
Watching "Texas Chainsaw 3-D," the latest screen incarnation of the iconic chainsaw-wielding maniac Leatherface, the mind fairly reels. This purported direct sequel to Tobe Hooper's 1974 horror classic cheerfully ignores that director's own 1986 follow-up, the 1997 and 2003 remakes, the 2006 prequel and even its basic timeline. It scores points for sheer brazenness.
While use of methamphetamine is down in Gilbert, heroin and prescription drugs are on the uptick, according to the Gilbert Police Department.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and on Friday, a wonderful sound will be coming from Casino Arizona at Talking Stick during what promises to be a festive event with maybe some surprises.
Writer-director Andrew Dominik's "Killing Them Softly" is an incredibly stylish genre exercise set in the world of mobsters, junkies and lowlifes, but it's also trying incredibly hard to be About Something.
Not that anyone was exactly clamoring for it, but "The Collection" is a sequel to Marcus Dunstan's little-seen 2009 horror film "The Collector." The director and his co-screenwriter Patrick Melton have written four of the "Saw" films, and this similar exercise in gratuitous sadism and gore follows roughly the same template, although with the lack of originality suggested by the redundant title.
