An internationally recognized theoretical physicist is making it his goal to give scientists their due recognition in the public eye.
Like rats leaving a sinking ship, this past month we have seen Democrat party stalwarts abandoning their leader, President Barack Obama, left and right. San Francisco’s uberprogressive, liberal Sen. Diane Feinstein calling out her “lider” on national television for not having even one military plan to defeat ISIS. She wasn’t the first Democrat turncoat either. There was a conga line leading out of the House and the Senate of ex-Obama loyalists.
The Arizona Republican Party has named a replacement for former Sen. Russell Pearce, who resigned his top party post following a backlash to his remarks advocating mandatory contraception or sterilization for people on Medicaid.
In a case with nationwide implications, attorneys for a tiny Gilbert congregation want the U.S. Supreme Court to void local regulations that limit the size and placement of signs to its services.

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.
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.
Nearly three out of four registered voters didn't bother to cast ballots for any of the primary races.
WAR! Here we go again! We hear the call to attack and destroy ISIS from all arenas: from Tom Patterson (“Time for US to get ‘crazy’ and fight to win in Middle East,” East Valley Tribune, Aug. 24), from Joe Klein (“An Evil That Must Be Stopped,” Time Magazine, Aug. 25), and from many politicians, government advisers and so-called military experts. And this after just having briefly commemorated the 100th anniversary of the beginning of World War I, “The Great War,” the “War To End All Wars.” As we lackadaisically prepare ourselves to slay our newest foe, ISIS, it might be worthwhile to glance at an excerpt from Ernst Glaeser’s renowned best-seller from 1928, “Jahrgang 1902” (“Birth Year 1902”).
Republican Doug Ducey and Democrat Fred DuVal are set to debate for the first time this week as they seek to replace Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer.
The longtime funnyman has been making audiences laugh for nearly three decades, but that’s only a fraction of his repertoire. He’s also a film and television actor, co-owner of the Laugh Factory on Los Angeles’ Sunset Strip, a philanthropist, chairman of the California Latino Water Coalition and a hardcore Republican who supported candidate Mitt Romney in the last presidential election.
House Speaker Andy Tobin will carry the Republican banner in the race to oust Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick from Congress.
Electing a replacement for Republican Gov. Jan Brewer tops the list of items to watch in Arizona's November general election. Voters also will choose a new secretary of state, attorney general, treasurer and top schools official.
Claiming illegal political motives, attorneys for Republicans are asking the U.S. Supreme Court to void the lines drawn by the Independent Redistricting Commission for the state's 30 legislative districts.
Past generations of Americans defied the odds to achieve the right to participate in the political process — overcoming menacing threats of violence, arrest, and coercion, all to earn the right to vote. As United States citizens, we pride ourselves on living in a country that has become the standard-bearer of democratic values worldwide. But a troubling pattern has taken hold, threatening this distinction for generations to come.
Gov. Jan Brewer will get a chance to stop some Republicans from trying to undermine the financing for her expansion of Arizona's Medicaid program.
Doug Ducey apparently walked away with the Republican nomination for governor Tuesday, beating out five other contenders.
I am with Citizens for an Ethical Congress. We are concerned about corruption in the U.S. Congress — such issues as insider trading, earmarks, extorting money from the private sector, collecting and spending campaign funds illegally, and a general lack of transparency. These issues are widespread through both the U.S. House and the Senate and through both the Democrat and Republican parties.
Let’s face it, America and the West are failing now on the world stage. Particularly in the Middle East, fanatical Islamists are riding a huge wave of success. The convert-or-die crowd seems close to establishing the long-desired caliphate of regional Islamic hegemony.
Since the passage of the Affordable Care Act and Arizona’s expansion of Medicaid, health care may be more available to residents in Mesa and the rest of the East Valley than it ever has before.
Doug Ducey and Christine Jones are occupied in convincing Arizona that “immigration” is the only issue facing our Grand Canyon State. Both candidates desire to let President Obama know their personal feelings, and one (Christine Jones) thinks she can simply send the president of the United States an invoice to pay for a fence and more border patrol agents. The endorsement of Joe Arpaio ranting for Doug Ducey — a son of a police officer with no political background — indicates that the “Go Daddy Mama” and the “ice cream man” should not lead our state. On the other side of the fence, stands tall, a quiet gentleman, Scott Smith, who was Mesa’s long-term mayor; a leader served with excellence. This is what he did for Mesa as mayor: improved and revitalized Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport; in our worse economic recession, gathered the Chicago Cubs to remain in Mesa — in as much constructed a new baseball stadium; increased funding for Mesa’s metro rail system, linking to other transfer points for the East Valley; and negotiated with Apple to take over a new facility employing hundreds of new jobs. Smith was elected by President Obama to chair as president of the Conference for Mayors. Scott Smith is a proven leader; Arizonans can rest at ease while Smith governs our state. I moved into Mesa in 2008 — the worst time in our economy. Since I am able to see the improvements in Mesa, that leads me to believe a man such as Scott Smith will satisfy every requirement as Arizona’s next governor.
