LOS ANGELES -- An emotional public memorial for Michael Jackson has concluded in Los Angeles. The ceremony attended by thousands in the downtown Staples Center and watched by millions around the world had a spiritual tone punctuated by performances and remembrances.
A pungent, sickly sweet odor punctuates the breeze on 33rd Street in Oak Park. Ramon and Jennifer Nickelberry grimace as they stand in their front yard and gesture toward the vacant lot next door. More dead things, they say.
UNITED NATIONS - President Bush wants the U.N. to uphold its pledge to fight for freedom in lands of poverty and terror and plans to punctuate his challenge by promising new sanctions against the military regime in Myanmar.
Just an advisory note to all Maricopa County Regional Library User parents: unless you put a parental control on your child’s library card, any child can check out any DVD, even sexually explicit “R-rated” movies. Please monitor your child’s library card and activity for their protection, especially over the summer months. It is our duty to protect our children.
I find it so routine, the negative comments regarding the recent “Mirandizing” letter to the editor. The comments as to which TV news reporting agency is the most biased is a banal and moot point which will never be put to rest. As are the comments about watching Law & Order, et al. Those readers have missed the issue; why isn’t the ‘suspected’ bomber being adjudicated as a terrorist instead of a poor Islamic refugee who enjoys blowing up his fellow citizens in the name of Allah? And yes, the shoe bomber was 2001; and again the issue was missed. That of, “Did the government learn nothing from it?” I sense people suffering political shame.
Arizona has the ‘Stupid Motorist Law’ for people who continue to challenge the forces of nature with their vehicles. It’s about time we had the ‘Stupid Hiker/Camper Law’ for those who think they can outwit nature/happenstance with their personal abilities. These folks are obviously lacking in common sense and make themselves a liability to the tax payer. I sincerely hope (these people are) held accountable and made to pay monetarily for their ‘stupid’ indiscretions.
Could it be there is a politico agenda regards the President’s White House ‘private’ swearing in, Sunday the 20th, and it not being held at the Capitol? The Constitution dictates the President is to be sworn in on the 20th of January which falls on a Sunday this year. Since there is to be no connection between “church” & “state”, could it be the public ceremony at the Capitol, planned for the 21st, Martin Luther King Day, is part of a hidden agenda? Sure smells that way.
A couple things to address: First, the Venter who disagrees with the wholesomeness of “Leave It To Beaver,” et al, obviously doesn’t get the moral of the story.
Recently I read that a number of Yarnell residents were now going to sue the town, city, state, USA, etc. for their negligence in safe guarding their properties. I also read that a tremendous amount of money was donated to assist them and that some (if not all) of their houses were being rebuilt — at no cost to them at all. Obviously, personal effects cannot be replaced, but I wonder if when they point the “finger of blame” they realize that three fingers point back to them. For instance, how many of them had insurance on their “homes in the woods?” How many adequately cleared a ‘fire break’ around their house? How many had prepared plans in case of such a fire? The loss of life through negligence is never acceptable; however, the loss of personal possessions through your negligence is your own fault! Trying to recoup your losses at others expense is wrong and jeopardizes possible future donations to others in need.
“If corporations are people too, and should have religious rights, how come the Bible has never spoke of a corporation making it to heaven in the form of a holy spirit. It’s an insult to all those who believe and makes their prayers seem cheap.”
I’m not sure if letter writer Jeff Smith is dumb, devious or confused. Maybe all three.
“How ironic that the same Democrats that chastised the Republicans for demanding changes to Obamacare are now demanding changes to Obamacare!”
Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s response to being monitored comes as no surprise to those of us who know Joe. And it does not surprise his attorney. When Joe was first elected, he found himself in attendance at a federal court hearing where he and the county board of supervisors were being monitored under the terms of a consent decree involving his predecessor regarding jail conditions. Tent City was Joe’s response. But the idea was all his attorney’s. However Joe took the credit. I will never forget what Joe said to his attorney. “Where does this judge think he can order me around?” Defiant to a fault, it is high time this community sent Joe packing.
I read this morning where Bashas’ got caught mis-labeling meat as one or more grades higher than what it actually is.
“To the midwest venter implying they were safer 50 years ago. I’ll bet you lived in a ‘sundown town’, which would have intimidated anyone of color to keep moving on to the next town. Safe for what color of resident? Pretty obvious, ‘Sundown.’”
Sheriff Joe too should have called his immigration sweeps “criminal investigations” and then he could have gotten away with little or no criticism from the media and ACLU. “What’s in a name?”
“To Kimberly Miller on her opinion about hunting: I can only say you should continue eating your rabbit food and I will continue eating the rabbit.”
Allegiant Airways will halt flights from Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport to Honolulu in August for a short time, an airways spokesperson said Tuesday.
After hearing about how the TV show, “The Bible,” was causing such a controversy, I made it a point to start watching it to see what all the fuss was about.
Book Description (Courtesy ChangingHands.com): The 5 Simple Truths of Raising Kids draws upon the entirety of Brad’s research and professional experience. In his career he has surveyed over 100,000 children and adolescents, personally interviewing close to 4,000 in group and one-on-one sessions, and run direct service programs in major cities nationwide. He breaks down barriers between the generations and present tweens and teens as they really are. Brad distills the best information on child development, media use, delinquency and morality into five simple truths that will help parents better understand and appreciate the young people in their lives while providing strategies for addressing everyday concerns in positive and productive ways.
Brad doesn’t place the danger with kids, rather he thinks the danger lies with the sensationalized media about tweens and teens. The 5 Truths of Raising Kids is based on solid research, but Brad’s writing is easy to digest and punctuated with anecdotes from his own experience counseling kids, working within juvenile prisons, and developing television programs and video games. Some of it is funny, most of it is practical, but all of it is important to anyone who cares about kids.
Love is in the air at Mesa’s monthly Second Friday art walk 6 to 10 p.m. Feb. 8. Downtown Mesa’s historic Main Street comes alive with the Valentine theme “Sweethearts on Main” where attendees are encouraged to get out that zoot suit or flapper dress they’ve been hiding in the back of the closet and participate in a dance and costume competition while they rekindle romance over a dinner at one of downtown’s many restaurants.
That’s ‘YOUR’ money their donating folks and I, as a Salt River client and entrapped customer of a monopoly, am insulted by it. Personally, I wouldn’t give two cents to attend a Super Bowl game, but that’s besides the point. The City of Glendale has trickled away millions of $’s of their tax payers hard earned monies on sporting events and venues, unfortunately that’s their problem. But I sure don’t relish the fact that a public utility is using my hard-earned cash to help finance a sporting event supported by a minority of the utility’s paying customers. Next time SRP wants to raise it’s rates, give a second thought to where the money may be spent. Gee, I wonder if it has anything to do with a SRP executive being on the Super Bowl Committee?
In observance of Veterans Day on Sunday, Nov. 11, Famous Dave’s Bar-B-Que would like to thank all former and current military personnel for their dedication and commitment to our country by offering a “Two Meat Salute.” The free special is a choice of two different meats served with a corn bread muffin and a side.
Mesa officials hope to gather ideas for buildings, parks, programs and more from residents through a new app dubbed “This is My Mesa.” Through the app, people can provide ideas of what could be part of the city’s general, transportation or transit plan.
I’d like to comment on those ridiculous remarks made by a person in your Vent column last Wednesday about the old “Leave It To Beaver” TV program. Where in the heck do they get the idea that it was racist and sexist and that the kids were constantly misbehaving? That show never had anyone smoking pot, sniffing cocaine and using swear words as today’s TV programs do. They also never promoted the idea of people living together and making babies BEFORE marriage — that’s if they would get married at all as in today’s TV programs. We need more programs today to show that at one time, we had a decent family oriented society in America.
