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.
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.

I wonder how many people are still paying attention to the calamity going on in Missouri?

This spring, as tragic reports surfaced of veterans dying while waiting for care at the Phoenix VA, I hosted a town hall forum at Burton Barr Central Library where the families of four veterans who passed away stood before a packed room to tell their stories. With tears in their eyes — and anger and frustration palpable throughout the room — they recalled countless unanswered phone calls and ignored messages, endless wait times, and mountains of bureaucratic red tape at the VA while their loved ones suffered debilitating and ultimately fatal conditions.
When the name “Falcon Field Airport” is mentioned, the next thing people often ask is, “Isn’t that place getting shut down?” Nothing could be further from the truth.
SAN FRANCISCO — Dustin Moskovitz is plotting an escape from email.
Visiting a retired Frank Capra at his Sierra Nevada hideaway, Clint Eastwood was baffled.
We need a strong council going forward that will continue to lead this great city. For that reason, I am supporting Kevin Hartke, Rene Lopez and Terry Roe.

I have worked closely with Terry and Rene on various city issues over the years and have full faith and confidence in their ability to lead Chandler forward. These individuals are ready to serve our community in a meaningful way. They are people of integrity and character and, therefore, have my unequivocal support.
Bean burgers, peanut butter substitutes and pre-sliced vegetable packets were on the menu recently as school lunchroom managers from around the country sampled offerings in a hunt for fare that will meet stricter health mandates — without turning off sometimes-finicky students.

Former Arizona Senate President Russell Pearce has been offered a job with the Maricopa County Treasurer's office overseeing the agency's technical services department, but he may not take the job right away because he's too busy.

The Governing Board of the Mesa Public School District will ask voters in November to renew the override of the district’s budget.

Regarding Mr. Maruca’s column from June 17: “What higher standards mean for the students in my classroom.” Re: Common Core.
The implementation of Arizona’s College and Career Ready Standards is making a difference in student success beyond the classroom. Using these standards, learners are required to think more critically and become more involved in justifying their responses when answering higher-level questions. I am spending less time lecturing and more time teaching critical thinking skills so that my students have the ability to discover the correct answer, but can also explain the process that they took to work through the problem. Students take a more active role by acquiring ownership of their learning. This builds self-confidence and allows for higher levels of success.
To say that the new Adam Sandler movie, "Blended," is better than some of his other recent work — "Jack and Jill," for example — isn't saying much. After all, some natural disasters cause less damage than others. But none are a positive development.
NEW YORK — Marc Maron is one of the best interviewers you are likely to hear.
LOS ANGELES — In James Gray's "The Immigrant," a dismal tale of survival in 1920s New York, Joaquin Phoenix shifts through a gallery of identities, from savior to cad to pitiful loner. His performance — often improvised with co-star Marion Cotillard — is masterfully layered, though his character wasn't initially written that way.
St. Lawrence River activities myriad, but heed the weather changes on the Gaspe peninsula
While at a soccer game some time ago I was reminded of why there is so little peace in our world. Parents from the two opposing teams almost came to blows and bloodshed while watching from the bleachers. This wasn’t a game with the World Cup at stake. These were 5-year-olds on the field. Cooler heads ultimately prevailed, but only after copious amounts of pushing and shoving, after the air had been singed blue with profanity, and the threat of involving law enforcement was made. It made me wonder what these five-year-old witnesses had to say after the game as the juice boxes and orange slices were passed out.
Processed and convenience foods and shortcut cooking methods have become so entrenched in our culinary culture, it's easy to forget just how much we have forgotten about real cooking.
