When it comes to designing an app to help kids learn, there may not be a better group of product developers than kids themselves.
Have you ever been to a church Christmas program to see Mary and Joseph riding on a donkey, barn yard animals around the manger, a baby Jesus with no hint of crying, and wise men in the background, but you thought, “I wonder if that is really how the first Christmas scene looked?”
I wish we could count on the message of the Christ child to bring peace to the land; to elevate concerns for our fellow souls to the top of our gift lists. I wish mentally ill shooters of children and crazies who hammer innocent motorists to death never were. I wish ignorant, opportunistic looters would go poof in the night. I’m not sure that mankind is any more civilized than 2000 years ago, though we think we’re smarter than ever.
Between the beautifully wrapped presents under the tree, the candy, and Santa’s midnight trip, it is easy for kids to miss the message of Christmas.
There are a lot of myths and mysteries that pertain to the Southwest, in particular Arizona. None greater than the story of Jacob Waltz, the Lost Dutchman… in reality he was a German from Deutschland born around 1862. The story or legend goes on that the prospector (Waltz) would go into the Superstition Mountains and come out with saddle bags filled with gold. He would, with donkey in tow, mosey into Phoenix and sell his find, the same city where he breathed his last breath in 1891 and is buried in. The myth and the mystery continues into the 21st century and still no sign of a gold mine.
The Eucharistic Community of Francis of Assisi emphasizes “community” over going to church to pursue personal piety or to fulfill religious obligations. We consider the spread of Christianity in the early church due to how Christians loved and served one another. Therefore, we are devoted to one another through prayer and service.
Sticky cheeks, dirty hands, and smiling faces.
In the spirit of Christmas, this month’s cocktail from Kelly’s at SouthBridge combines charity with cheer. The drink, a blend of homemade eggnog, rum and Tuaca liqueur, garnished with edible gold, is available until Dec. 31 and costs $25 — which is pricey, but 100 percent of the proceeds go to Andrea’s Closet, a nonprofit organization that provides toys for hospitalized children. Of course, if you’ve already made your Christmas donations or don’t feel like driving to Scottsdale, you can mix up the drink at home with the following ingredients.
Nothing has attracted more attention in Gilbert during the past two years than the antics of Gilbert Public Schools Governing Board member Daryl Colvin. Now that the dust has settled from the last election, the question is can Colvin be an effective member after the community resoundingly rejected his backed candidates, and by connection his policies.
Social Box in Chandler will host a fundraiser on Dec. 20 featuring Santa Claus to benefit Friends for Life Animal Rescue in Gilbert.
Whenever I would get to this one gym, there was one particular gentleman that embodied the whole feel of the place. He was an unexpected surprise. Albert was an amazing gift to many different people. Patrons go to the gym to work out and feel good. Albert, a janitor, was a broad-shouldered man. He was dark-skinned with a distinctive shiny head. He had served our country in the U.S. Navy. He worked hard to make the place look good. He cleaned up other people’s mess. It was a dirty job — a thankless job on hands and knees cleaning dirty toilets. He served people with pride and professionalism.

Every time I load updates on my computer, I seem to get a lot more than I want. It’s so slow now I’ll have to ask one of my tech-savvy friends to declutter it. The reason for my angst is the mysteriously enhanced prevalence of the aptly named spinning wheel of death. You know the little symbol that appears to let you know that your web page selection is supposed to be loading. That tiny whirling dervish that just keeps on going round and round, while you stare at the screen wondering what’s taking so long, take a brief timeout to water your plants, visit the washroom, get a cup of coffee, and still end up twiddling your thumbs. Strangely enough, I can watch dreamy-eyed at clothes whirling and flopping around the laundromat dryer. But the moment that mini-me dryer equivalent appears whirling on my computer screen, I get restless and agitated. At least we know something purposeful is happening at the laundromat, whereas the computer offers no guarantees.
President Obama’s executive action authorizing amnesty for at least 5 million illegal immigrants was obviously unlawful and unconstitutional. He’s said so many times himself. He claims he had no choice since the good of the country demanded that he act. But that’s really not true either.
