Does anyone really know what happened in Ferguson? I certainly don’t. The media reporting devoid of any investigative journalism has done virtually nothing to clarify things. Regardless of what the alleged unarmed teenager Michael Brown did or didn’t do, he is entitled to a fair trial, not an execution. The arresting officer Darren Wilson is also entitled to his day in court instead of “mob rule” even after emptying his entire magazine into this kid. Although I have no clue as to who is innocent or guilty, I can only conclude the following. First, disproportionate force by the police may have been used to stop Michael Brown. Second, law enforcement is excessively militarized and we live in a police state. The militarization of law enforcement greatly fueled the flames of community outrage. The bureaucrats know this and are using this outrage to justify further militarization. Third, there appears to be little leadership or accountability at any level of government. Watching local politicians and law enforcement pass the buck to county officials, the county to the state, and finally the state to the federal government was absolutely pathetic. What good are these ineffective officials if they can’t do their job and follow the Constitution as we pay them to do? Clearly, you are correct, Gov, Nixon; the whole world is watching you and your fellow public servants. And thus far, all of you are failing miserably.
I can only imagine the machismo in the air at Wednesday night’s gubernatorial candidate summit on immigration and border security hosted by Mr. Muy Macho himself, Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu.
I can only imagine the machismo in the air at last night’s gubernatorial candidate summit on immigration and border security hosted by Mr. Muy Macho himself, Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu.
Pinal County authorities say a man sought in the fatal shooting of his ex-girlfriend and the wounding of a neighbor in Tempe fatally shot himself after a chase from the Tucson area.
No head coach helped develop an efficient winning true team, with no star players, better than coach Jeff Hornacek. Unfortunately, most voters go by the coach who gets his team to the playoffs. Coach Hornacek had great teachers who understood fundamentals must be taught strictly and there is no “I” in TEAM. Coach Cotton Fitzsimmons and coach Jerry Sloan were Hornacek’s coaches and teachers. Hornacek was a terrific instinctual player once he learned his coaches’ teachings automatically. You could see his teachings were embraced by all of the 2013-14 Phoenix Suns. Truth is performance and no coach turned his team around faster than Hornacek. It was fun to watch and the young Suns players look like they were having fun.
Arizonans will not be allowed bring their guns into public buildings, at least not this year.
State lawmakers voted Wednesday to let ranchers shoot the Mexican gray wolves being reintroduced to the Southwest despite their listing under federal law as endangered.
More than 200,000 Arizonans who have permits to carry concealed weapons would be able to bring them into most public buildings under terms of a bill given preliminary Senate approval Tuesday, ignoring “no guns” signs at the door.
My role in resurrecting a dead criminal case began a few weeks back with an out-of-the-blue phone call courtesy of a private eye named Don Corbett. He phoned with news of a strange case with ties to a Mesa woman and an impending trip to Scottsdale for an interview or potentially an interrogation.
A man killed in a shootout with state Department of Public Safety officers and a security guard on a Tempe freeway Monday morning was suspected in one Phoenix-area killing on Sunday and possibly another earlier Monday, police said.
Gilbert Christian girls basketball coach Darryl Young took a few minutes to talk about winning a second state championship in four years after losing a big piece of the puzzle for the year on the first day of the season.
The Chandler Tri-City Christian boys basketball team captured the Canyon Athletic Association State Championship on March 1, defeating Glendale Desert Heights Prep at US Airways Center. The 57-51 victory gave Tri-City its second consecutive title and third in the last four seasons. The Warriors finished their season with a record of 22-3.
All season, Perry freshman point guard Markus Howard shined brightest under the biggest lights. He posted 40 points against Dobson in November and tallied 34 points in a loss to defending state champion Corona del Sol in the Super Sectionals.
Ashlee Moore didn't play in Hamilton's first meeting with Mesquite back in mid-December - a 10-point win for Mesquite - but the Huskies' senior guard played in the Division I quarterfinals on Tuesday night, and helped put the"X-factor" cliche back into truth.
During a four-game stretch in early January, Mountain View senior guard Cherokee Davis might have been the best girls basketball player in the East Valley. The 5-foot-3 slasher averaged 31 points per game and shot 55 percent.
If this was basketball circa 1955, the Hamilton boys basketball team would hardly qualify as distinctive or unique: A bunch of guys who pass the ball around and play defense.
The Desert Vista girls have had a super season, but now it is time for the Super Sectionals.
Arizona State coach Charli Turner Thorne knew the negative impact her sabbatical would have on the program, the big hit on recruiting, the lack of continuity and leadership and, mostly likely, the losses on the court.
Suns guard Goran Dragic, center, shoots between Indiana Pacers guard George Hill, left, and forward David West in the first half of an NBA basketball game in Indianapolis, Thursday, Jan. 30, 2014.
Bethany Wolph, Guard, Valley Christian: Similar to Seton Catholic, Valley Christian has been a perennial title contender for years. And, similar to Seton Catholic, the Trojans have relied on freshman contributions before. This, however, is new. Wolph (11.9 points per game) is second on the team in scoring behind sophomore Mara Kemmer, and has quickly become a product of hard work in morphing herself from a shooter into a scorer (she plays with some of the Seton girls in club ball), and her mother, a “basketball junkie” according to Timmer. Megan Timmer and Angie Andreas are also seeing significant minutes as freshmen for the No. 1-seeded team in Division III, but Wolph “was the biggest shock” in Timmer’s view between eighth grade and now. “Bethany was always a shooter but didn’t have a complete game, wasn’t real tall, her ball skills were solid, but now she can score — not just shoot — and she’s coming around defensively and rebounding,” he said. “She really had to get better and you could see the improvement right away in summer and fall.” The challenge moving forward will be playing in a series of larger, neutral site venues — more than Div. I or II —, and against some of the Northern Arizona schools’ several thousand opposing fans. That’s a lot to ask of a few freshman (there are no seniors on the roster) who play such pivotal roles in the Trojans’ attempt to win a third state title in Timmer’s long-standing tenure. “Those kids are pretty mature at every level and in games when it comes to pressure, 6,000 fans, the physical play they’re going to find, so we addressed it,” Timmer said. “I’m pretty confident this group will handle it as well as anyone. I’m not afraid we’ll be that nervous or tight we can’t perform.”

To compensate for a lack of change at the top of the boys basketball landscape as the 2012-2013 season begins, the girls basketball world might pick up the slack.
The chill of winter means basketball is already underway with a plethora of early-season games and tournaments, and yet the question remains:
A freshman has already made a name for himself this basketball season, but perhaps Perry's Markus Howard isn't just another freshman.
There are a lot of questions surrounding area boys basketball teams as the season begins and the answers will go a long way in determining just where it ends up.
LOS ANGELES — While some say school safety hinges on guns, cameras or alarms in classrooms, Mark Gomer and Kristi Schiller think specially trained dogs should take point in preventing violence in schools.
