Most Tempe residents will never come in contact with the University Lakes Precinct Justice of the Peace. The JP has jurisdiction over misdemeanor and traffic crimes committed at Arizona State University and outside of the Tempe City limits and a laundry list of civil law matters. JPs aren't required to be attorneys.

One of my first actions as mayor was to announce the formation of the Falcon Strategic Visioning Commission. For more than 75 years, Mesa’s Falcon Field Economic Activity Area (FFEAA) has led the nation in aviation innovation. From the early 1940s when WWII U.S. and British cadets trained over the skies of Mesa, to today where multimillion dollar, cutting-edge aircraft continue to set the standard in aviation; the FFEAA is one of Mesa’s most dynamic and dense zones of employment and economic opportunity.
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.

It was 13 years ago Thursday when terrorists attacked the United States after gaining control of four commercial airplanes. Two planes struck and took down the World Trade Center in New York; the third damaged the Pentagon in Washington, D.C.; and the fourth plane crashed in a field in Pennsylvania. Passengers of that flight, United 93, fought the terrorists in an attempt to regain control of the plane.
The first debate between gubernatorial candidates Republican Doug Ducey and Democrat Fred DuVal was what I expected it to be. Their positions on education and jobs are quite well known. Both spoke well, dressed alike and were pleasant. It was what was to be expected.
I was in the hardware store when I first heard the news, though I did not know what I was hearing. As the cashier tallied my purchase, I overheard a reporter on the store’s radio make the peculiar announcement that a plane had crashed into the World Trade Center. At the time, I thought of it as little more than a curiosity. How wrong I was.
A proposal asking voters to hike the pay of state legislators by $11,000 a year is getting a decidedly cool reception from Gov. Jan Brewer — as is her own party's nominee for state superintendent of public instruction.
A collection of local businesses made improvements on the Valley’s newest Ronald McDonald House.
In the opinion pages of the Aug. 29 Arizona Republic, readers were told for the second time in August about the growing gang problems in the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Community, problems that have spread beyond Salt River and into the East Valley and beyond. Gangs have long been a problem there and continue to grow in boldness. Last May gangsters murdered a Salt River police officer across the street from an upscale Scottsdale neighborhood. Attacks on police and community members are all too common.

The Buddha said, “When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.” Well, ready or not kids, your teachers are showing up in classrooms everywhere. It’s time to crack open the books, slip the surly bonds of summer, and head back to school.
On Aug. 8, I read an article written by Dan Tamblo, a good writer. I have also read a few other articles about The Lakes and the proposed residential housing project in this paper. I agree with those homeowners (51 percent or more, I hope) who do not support further residential development at The Lakes Golf Course.
In Division I, the boys team race is wide open, which favors the traditional power teams that have a large number of athletes in the program. That means look for Desert Vista, Highland, Mountain View and Corona del Sol to occupy spots in the top 5 this year. Individually, Corona del Sol’s Marcus Wheeler is the top returner. It’ll be interesting to see how Wheeler adjusts to running solo after a year of running with (or just behind) teammates Nathan Rodriguez and Ryan Normand. The trio finished 1, 2, 3 at the state meet a year ago, and Wheeler gained a lot from training and competing with his older teammates. Can he match that this year as he takes over the helm of the favorite? That’s the biggest question going into the season.
A Tempe-based post-secondary education marketing company earned a spot among the country’s fastest-growing, privately held companies of 2014.
