At first, the apocalypse on a train premise of the new sci-fi film, Snowpiercer, comes off as being rather absurd, and the more you think about it the crazier it seems. Nevertheless, the unlikely setting for this story does make for an entertaining, allegoric and thought-provoking look at class conflict and the dangers of messing with Mother Nature, plus it has some thrilling action sequences and special effects as well.
I received a mystery package recently, opened it up, and discovered a popular appetite suppressant inside. Sprinkle this magic powder on your food, the included literature instructed, and allegedly it would cooperate with your sense of smell to curb your cravings. And here it was in my hands — a whole box of the stuff. But I didn’t order it.
Every Sunday morning we showcase a classic comic cover, complete with compelling commentary, for your cordial contemplation. It’s the Classic Comic Cover Corner!
Take a peek from a few miles away and it appears Chandler senior Ky Westbrook had a sensational track season. She took home four state titles in the 100, 100 hurdles, 200 and shot put, and the Wolves took home their ninth consecutive state title due in large part to her efforts.
Linda Turley-Hansen makes an egregious error in judgment and shows her own prejudice in her recent commentary, “Downgrading traditional marriage is colossal mistake.” Her rational relies on the false premise that somehow “traditional marriage” is collapsing because “3 percent” of the gay population continues to seek legal recognition and protection for their families. This kind of rationale is unintuitive and would fail to pass muster in even an undergraduate logic course. Regardless of makeup, all families are capable of providing a stabilizing influence to society. Opposite-gender homes, same-sex homes, single parent homes, and blended families have always existed in our society, but it has just been in recent decades that we have begun to acknowledge their existence.
Justin Hunsaker graduated from Skyline High School in May, but senioritis doesn’t appear to have been on his to-do list. Besides being named to speak in the school’s graduating ceremonies, he won several essay competitions.
Students at Highland High School in Gilbert continued its tradition of donating blood to a state organization, and they ended up donating more than any other school in the state.
Good evening, graduates, faculty, and family. It’s an honor to be standing on this stage tonight, with the opportunity to speak to you all, but at the same time it’s very surreal. Everyone tells me that it won’t sink in that we’ve graduated for a few weeks, when we wake up and realize that we’re never coming back here. Say what you will about your high school experience — it’s different for everybody — but it is, undoubtedly, a one-of-a-kind experience that we will never get back.
Supporters of a 2011 Arizona ban on race- and gender-based abortions want a federal appeals court to rule that a woman's right to an abortion can be trumped because of the reason she wants it.
Bonded Logic makes home products from recycled textiles. But the Chandler-based company didn’t consider itself as environmentally friendly as possible.

Early on I was afraid for this film – with every announcement of another character being added to the movie’s mix becoming another potentially convoluted dramatic layer – and sure enough, at 142 minutes, director Marc Webb has created a film that oozes superfluous storylines like a leaky web cartridge. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 still offers some spectacular action sequences, but its out-of-control narrative is far from being superior to the first film.
Brick Mansions is an American remake of the French action film, District B13 (2004), that starred the French inventor of the Parkour … uhh … obstacle exercise technique (?), David Belle. I’m not really sure what Parkour is, other than you jump, swing and flip over walls, cars and fences while running from something. Skills that I’m sure come in handy when capture is more dangerous than what you are doing to evade it.
Citing 17th Century English law, the state Court of Appeals concluded Thursday that those charged with shoplifting are entitled to demand a trial by jury.
WASHINGTON — While scientists believe the universe began with a Big Bang, most Americans put a big question mark on the concept, an Associated Press-GfK poll found.
In a major victory for the legislative minority, the state Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday that lawmakers on the losing end of last year's Medicaid expansion have a constitutional right to challenge the law and the levy it imposes.
A GPS device installed and tracked by police without a warrant is illegal even if the person being targeted for tracking is not the owner of the vehicle, the state Court of Appeals ruled Monday.
So we approach Schoolaggedon. Otherwise known as Common Core. Or, here in Arizona, the College and Career Readiness Standards.
Escapism is an underrated part of life, something devalued from a combination of cynicism and a lack of pragmatic purpose. But flights into fantasy are invaluable when coping with something large and frightful, or simply trying to stave off impending doom.
Writing about a sequel in the Marvel franchise is tricky because of the franchise’s incestuous nature. Iron Man, for example, has three movies of his own, a lead role in “The Avengers” and either stops by or is referenced frequently in the other Marvel films due to the ubiquitous nature of Stark Industries. All of those appearances and references serve as outlets to broaden every hero, so isolating Thor's actions in his franchise is impossible because of the character development he sustains in the tent pole film.

It takes a lot for a film based on a video game to impress a crowd these days, given the dazzling advancements in gaming technology. But "Need for Speed," based on the hit EA Entertainment racing game that's sold 150 million units, could now drive some of that success toward the box office.
Raising stipends for officials a good step
