The minute I heard the Phoenix Suns had made yet another clear-the-cupboard, shake-the-Etch-a-Sketch, let’s-try-this-again trade on Friday, I thought about my nephew Jake.

Here is the Division I Section 1 All-Section football team as voted by the section's football coaches:
Three Higley School District governing board members, Venessa Whitener, Kim Anderson, and Denise Standage, voted on Sept. 10 to accept $750,000 from the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors to construct and operate a Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) fueling station. The reason given is to reduce air pollution caused by buses. Good grief. This unnatural fixation that we are dying in the streets from environmental catastrophe is insane. Board member Jake Hoffman tried in vain to table the vote for further research, presenting an analysis which shows that it will end up costing taxpayers $2.3 million. For example, the district doesn’t even own any CNG vehicles and will have to replace 62 buses and 53 fleet vehicles, which will take years. These three board members are not just misusing taxpayer dollars, but they are doing it without performing due diligence. They are also dabbling in an unproven industry about which they know zilch, and where they have no business, plus they are competing with the private market (Clean n Green is less than five miles from the intended site). The MCBOS will be voting on the acceptance of Higley’s grant application on Sept. 23, so this can be stopped. According to Mr. Hoffman, CNG vehicles represent less than four one-hundredths of one percent of all vehicles registered in the United States. Education should not be the petri dish for unproven, currently unsustainable commodities.
George Clooney, movie director, started out with so much promise.
BRICKS to House Speaker Jake Flake, R-Snowflake, for refusing to delay debate on a prison bill Thursday so lawmakers could attend a rosary for the mother of Rep. Ben Miranda and Sen. Richard Miranda, both Phoenix Democrats.
Outlook: Two years ago, a large collection of talented sophomores were thrown into the fire at Highland. The Hawks had gotten off to an 0-5 start, and with little chance of making the postseason, coach Pete Wahlheim figured it was time to turn the page and evaluate his youngsters.
Yes, the Suns are bigger. They are tougher. They are more defensive-minded. And when all is said and done with their offseason acquisitions, the argument can certainly be made they are deeper.

Outlook: While it’s a new era at Horizon, a duplication of last year’s success would be a nice feat for the football program. Doug Shaffer led the Huskies to an 8-3 record a season ago and a Division II playoff berth, but stepped away one year earlier than expected because of health issues. Enter Kris Heavner, the former Arizona quarterback who was most recently the coach at Santa Rita.
Mountain View’s big-play wide receiver watched from the sidelines Friday night, wearing blue jeans while propped up on crutches.
Saguaro running back D.J. Foster and Chaparral wide receiver Davonte Neal ran wild on opposing defenses last year, putting up eye-popping numbers and leading their teams to state championships. It’s doubtful that any skill player will accumulate statistics approaching those marks this year, but Friday nights certainly won’t lack in star power. A host of offensive standouts return to their teams for another year of high school football. Here are five players who will be worth the price of admission this season:
Whatever lucky charm Campo Verde pulled out to survive two monster mistakes in the final minutes of its game against Highland wore off at exactly the wrong time, providing the visiting Hawks one more chance to escape with a 27-24 victory on Friday night.
