More than 100 dancers from all over the map applied to perform in this weekend’s Breaking Ground festival in Tempe. Fewer than one fifth of them made the cut for the production, a project of Carley Conder, head of accomplished local troupe CONDER/dance and part of the family behind longtime East Valley studio Jeanne’s School of Dance. Here, Conder gives GetOut readers an inside take on the show and her locally famous grandmother.
I had the conversation in my aunt’s car on a South Dakota road. I’m talking about starting that conversation about your family’s heart history.
Admittedly, it is a little early to start talking about Christmas; Halloween is barely a week away, and Thanksgiving still awaits in the middle of the holiday sandwich. And there’s some reflection of that fact in Aaron Leach’s front yard in Mesa on Oct. 21, with several strands of light and inflatable ornaments unpacked but strewn all over the brown ground.
Halloween is still a few days away, but the big holiday news in the East Valley this week is that downtown Tempe’s annual New Year’s Eve block party is going to be back in its blockbuster glory.

A report conducted by Arizona State University’s W.P. Carey School of Business indicates the combined direct and indirect impacts from Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport brought in more than $1 billion to the regional economy in fiscal year 2013.

I don’t usually write about sports, and you can all relax, because I’m not going to today.
Job hopping used to be the kiss of death on your resume. The candidate who only stayed briefly at a company, for a year or two, was considered to be potentially unstable. However, these days, and in certain industries, companies and recruiters are beginning to have a different view of the job hopper -- as someone who is young but wants to gain experience rapidly, who is also flexible, resourceful and learns fast.

Paula Deen being unfairly ostracized for the documentation of a word she used in a private deposition when testifying to a robbery where she herself was the victim, 27 years ago. Then we had the President who conspired to have dalliances in his Oval Office with his intern, keeping his Presidency after ‘admittedly’ lying about it to Congress and the American people. The list goes on and on.
I implore Congressman Schweikert to vote in favor of HR 1731, brought to us by the United Egg Producers and the Humane Society of the United States. This bill will create a fairer egg marketplace, subsequently improving the lives of millions of egg-laying hens. It benefits farmers by giving them standardized guidelines by which to raise their hens, and it benefits hens by improving what’s required of their care. It’s a win-win for animals and consumers and I am counting on Congressman Schweikert’s vote!
She started looking into her homeowner’s association because she just didn’t think what they were doing to her was fair.
Now that June is boiling up all over, as a public service this column will provide, especially to new arrivals, unsolicited advice on summer survival in the Sonoran Desert. When you’re not covering yourself in aloe vera juice to relieve a scalding sunburn, when surfaces inside your car are noticeably less than molten, when you’re watching someone else on TV being carried down from Camelback Mountain giving a thumbs-up to the camera — that’s when you’ll thank me, um, I hope.

If you love that mother in your home, get rid of those babes spread out on the coffee table. I’ve had it with them. They’re not good for either soul — male or female! Why do we contemplate airbrushed, digitally altered, Botox laden, breast-enhanced illusions?

Q: Is a VPN the safest way to use an unsecured (public) Wi-Fi connection? Are there other ways to stay safe? Are there any free VPNs out there for personal use? — Kevin

Arizona has the ‘Stupid Motorist Law’ for people who continue to challenge the forces of nature with their vehicles. It’s about time we had the ‘Stupid Hiker/Camper Law’ for those who think they can outwit nature/happenstance with their personal abilities. These folks are obviously lacking in common sense and make themselves a liability to the tax payer. I sincerely hope (these people are) held accountable and made to pay monetarily for their ‘stupid’ indiscretions.
