To my senators, Jeff Flake and John McCain, Arizona citizens and the editor:
“This is the end, beautiful friend.” That line from The Doors’ song could easily sum up Friday at the 2014 Phoenix Film Festival (PFF) and International Horror & Sci-Fi Film Festival (IHSFF), where several apocalypse themed films were showcased throughout the day and the highlight of the evening was meeting the amazingly beautiful Dee Wallace, who was on hand for the screening of her classic film, Cujo.
Arizona taxpayers may spend $30 million to do little more than find out how good – or bad – a job the federal government does in securing the border.
WASHINGTON — Do you know the way to San Jose? Quite a few airline pilots apparently don't.
Remember the good old days when a big-budget action picture could earn a hard R rating? It looks like those days are officially dead. “Die Hard,” “The Terminator,” “Total Recall,” these were three of the best action movies of the late eighties and early nineties, complete with all the gleeful violence and profanity a kid could desire. Nowadays, everything must be toned down to a PG13 rating, including the recent sequels and reboots of the three aforementioned films.
A Senate panel took steps Wednesday to help ensure that the next Hollywood film featuring Arizona is actually filmed in this state.
Mesa native Matthew Goodman has advanced to the rank of colonel in the United States Army.
I’m glad to see our elected leaders in Washington have approved a plan to allow the federal government to spend money through 2014. I was particularly pleased to see that Congress has restored some money for Head Start and other investments in the health of our communities and has refused to give the Pentagon all the money that it was asking for.
Gov. Jan Brewer asked lawmakers Monday to approve to approve a plan to give more money to schools where students show marked improvement.
Gov. Jan Brewer said today she wants Child Protective Services made into its own separate agency, headed by someone who reports directly to her.
Without the mythological hero, Hercules, the popular culture of today would probably look a lot different than it does. You can easily draw a line from modern superheroes back to the time of the ancient Greeks. So why is it that after thousands of years since his inception we are still waiting for a decent Hercules movie?
Arizonans looking for ways to divert some of what they owe the state to other causes have a new option this year: foster care.
It’s the heart of a budding ecosystem of innovation, air travel, higher education and well-paying jobs.
PHOENIX — There will finally be as many people working in Arizona at the end of next year as there were employed here in 2005. But a new report Thursday shows it will take perhaps three more years for the state to hit its pre-recession employment peak.
An anti-bullying allegory writ on the largest possible scale, "Ender's Game" frames an interstellar battle between mankind and pushy ant-like aliens, called Formics, in which Earth's fate hinges on a tiny group of military cadets, most of whom haven't even hit puberty yet. At face value, the film presents an electrifying star-wars scenario — that rare case where an epic space battle transpires entirely within the span of two hours — while at the same time managing to deliver a higher pedagogical message about tolerance, empathy and coping under pressure. Against considerable odds, this risky-sounding Orson Scott Card adaptation actually works, as director Gavin Hood pulls off the sort of teen-targeted franchise starter Summit was hoping for.
A nearby, decades-old military operation little known by locals is coming to an end, but not without skeptics who say satellites are now left vulnerable.
Amid a stalled momentum in the House of Representatives, Arizona Sens. John McCain and Jeff Flake defended their proposed immigration legislation during a town hall event held at the Mesa Arts Center on Aug. 27.
There was no conciliatory phone call, no heart-to-heart talk to soothe the tensions. No one knows exactly when President Barack Obama and Republican Sen. John McCain went from bitter rivals in the 2008 presidential campaign and foes over health care and national security to bipartisan partners.
“Sen. Lindsey Graham wants to boycott the olympics because Russia is harboring Edward Snowden. Question ! If we do that who’s going to give our astronauts a ride back from the space station?”
With a solemnity reserved for momentous occasions, the Senate passed historic legislation Thursday offering the priceless hope of citizenship to millions of immigrants living illegally in America's shadows. The bill also promises a military-style effort to secure the long-porous border with Mexico.
After years in the doldrums, the housing market appears back on track. Home sales and prices are up, and mortgage rates remain near historic lows, reinvigorating the appeal of home ownership.
I was surprised to learn from the Friends Committee on National Legislation that 37 cents of every dollar we pay in federal income taxes go to pay for current and past wars. At the same time, education, diplomacy, and help to the nearly 100 million people living in poverty in this country get only pennies on every dollar.
Saying there are technical problems with the proposal, Gov. Jan Brewer vetoed legislation Friday which would have allowed individuals to shop around for the best price on health care needs.
