The Big Attack
Rita Coolidge has charted hits in almost every genre and won just about every music accolade possible, including two Grammy Awards.
More than one thousand luminarias brighten up the stone walls and dwellings of these ruins, a maze-like 800-year-old Salado village. The evening includes holiday music, Native American storytellers and dancers, a visit from Santa Claus and a bonfire. Vendors, like Navajo jewelry maker Maryann Yazzie of Mesa, will sell gifts, and you’ll get hot chocolate, hot apple cider, hot tea, coffee and cookies on the house.

A child is born, a family is healed, and a sermon on forgiveness is delivered with sledgehammer subtlety in "Black Nativity," a bold but clumsy attempt to bring Langston Hughes' popular musical to life onscreen.
Half a century ago, Sid Davis was the first journalist to learn John Kennedy had died. Instead of breaking the biggest the biggest news story in the world, he waited because he wanted to make sure he was right. It is hard to image a journalist making the same choice nowadays amid our modern cacophony of inaccurate reporting, but perhaps Davis has something to teach us.
PHOENIX — State officials are trying to delay a federal appellate court hearing on the question of whether the Tohono O'odham Nation can build a casino on the edge of Glendale.
Advocates for Comprehensive Immigration Reform (English translation: amnesty) like to point out that immigrants in the past have flocked to America and made important contributions to our nation. That’s true, but the America of 1913 was different from 2013 in ways that greatly affect the probability that immigrants will become contributing citizens.
I’ve been watching the fight over the Affordable Care Act and how some are stopping at nothing to shut it down before giving it a chance to work.
I believe the City of Apache Junction made a major mistake when they agreed to the erroneous street plan for Apache Trail North. Now we have portable speed limit signs flashing fifteen (15) miles per hour, much like a school zone, at the north and south entrance to a road that could have been two lanes of traffic in each direction with a center turning lane, which (in my opinion) would have been much more practicable.
Frustrated by the ease at which digital photos can be taken and doctored, some artists are kicking it old school: They've revived wet plate collodion photography, a medium invented and popular during the mid-1800s.
This photo provided by Studio Q shows "Skull Valley Massacre, 1864," an image by Quinn Jacobson that he took this month at Teepee Mountain in a valley West of Prescott, Ariz., where a group of Yavapai families were massacred by soldiers. Wet plate collodion photography, invented in 1851, has experienced a resurge in recent years as photographers turn to this antiquated method for its moody, even haunting, images and complicated, hands-on process. "The aesthetic is kind of a half-remembered dream," says Jacobson, a Denver photographer. Jacobson, who is part Navajo, is documenting the sites where troops massacred Native Americans during the mid- to late 1800s. (AP Photo/ Studio Q, Quinn Jacobson)

PHOENIX — Gov. Jan Brewer said Wednesday she finds nothing offensive in a major sports team having the name Redskins.
Along with grainy woods, metallics and other textural elements, rock and mineral-themed decor is part of a fall trend toward nature and natural elements.
RIO DE JANEIRO — It's bad enough that so few people outside Brazil know much about the country's cuisine. But Alex Atala finds it particularly galling that even at home it rarely gets the respect it deserves.
“Loving the double-speak by the GOP. One group of Republicans are saying the shutdown was the last thing they wanted and another group of Republicans are saying they are happy about the shutdown.”
RICHMOND, Va. — With terrain varying from the mountains to the coast, Virginia offers an array of fall colors for leaf-peepers. But before or after your drive along one of the state's many scenic byways, consider a fix of Southern city living with a visit to the state capital, Richmond. Located along Interstate 95, it's an easy stopping-off point. And whether you like the outdoors, art or history, there's plenty to do here — and you don't have to spend a dime.
There are some new faces at Phoenix Zoo.
Native American entertainers, demonstrators, artists and vendors fill downtown Chandler with performances, art and food from indigenous cultures across the Southwest.

Thirty-six years after the movie-going world met Luke Skywalker, it’s going to get to hear him speak in one of Arizona’s native languages: Diné.
