Rock musician Alice Cooper’s annual youth music competition showcases his passion for furthering education by giving young musicians a shot on stage.
Janet Hagberg was the first person who defined the experience for me. I had lived through it, but I didn’t know what to call it. In a book entitled, “The Critical Journey,” Janet called the experience, simply, “The Wall.” My summary goes like this. Many people begin their walk of faith, and everything goes as they expected. Out of genuine conviction, they attend church, learn from the Scriptures, volunteer, serve, give, and become “productive, committed, faithful, Christians” (whatever that exactly means, who knows?). But somewhere along the way things go wrong. Terribly wrong.

The chief attorney for the city of Tucson is telling a judge that national security could be compromised if it is forced to disclose some documents about how it uses equipment it has purchased to track cell phone users.
What is the big deal about public education these days? Does it really have an effect on my life if I don’t have children attending the public schools? The Justice Policy Institute issued a report in 2007 on Education and Public Safety. Research results found that “a 5-percent increase in male high school graduation rates would produce an annual savings (in the state) of almost $5 billion in crime-related expenses.” Are you aware that the Arizona high school graduation rate has fallen below the national average? Public Safety is the main concern of police departments across the state. Who, then, did the Arizona Police Association choose to endorse for Gilbert School Board? Jill Humpherys and Charles Santa Cruz.
The state's high court is being asked to decide when groups attacking politicians up for election have to disclose who is financing the effort.
This is the first year of the official Sept. 11th Museum and Memorial. Located underground, on the foundation stones of the World Trade Center Towers, it contains more than 10,000 artifacts of the day, 23,000 pictures, and an archive of more than 500 hours of video.
I was giving a short tour to a colleague from California recently. We drove down Rio Salado Parkway and Apache Boulevard, went past Arizona State University and the Biodesign Institute, stopped at Tempe Town Lake and strolled down Mill Avenue. I showed him the projects under way and described those planned. At the end of an hour he turned to me and said, “Wow! You really like your community.”
“Racism means lots of things to different people. The news is full of racism articles, where certain people are saying a white cop shooting a black kid is racist. Is it not just as racist to assume that the white cop is guilty of murder and racism before all the facts are in?”
When you stare death in the face one day, which we all will have to do, will you be able to say, “I have lived a full life? I am ready to die.” Wait! I know death is not a popular subject, but please don’t turn the page just yet to the sports section to catch up on high school football stats. I would ask you to just give me a few minutes of your time to describe a full life that you can live in and through Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world.
Bailey is a beautiful 1-year-old gal with bunny-like fur and a very loud purr. If you walk into a room and see her lying on her back with all four paws in the air, it’s her subtle way to solicit belly rubs. Bailey is very friendly — once she is standing upright again, she’ll rub against you in greeting with the hope of soliciting more petting. Bailey is content to sit next to you but isn’t above taking advantage of an empty lap either. She allows you to hold her like a baby and will not only give you sweet kitty-kisses of thanks — she’s been known to throw in some nose kisses as well.
Sometimes newspaper opinion generates the cream of community-thinking, which, in truth, is what it’s supposed to do. And, another plus: Readers’ constructive input drowns out the belly-aching from tweeter-types.

A Tempe man is facing three counts of child abuse after his girlfriend’s 14-month-old baby died earlier this week.

An atlas may seem like a strange item to give to a child, but when Chandler resident Dan Fellner was given one by his father, he was hooked. He quickly memorized all of the capitals of all of the states in the U.S. and many of the world’s capitals, places he would dream of going.
