Liz Holter, Guard, Seton Catholic: Actually, there are four freshmen who’ve made contributions at various points this season for Seton Catholic, with Holter and the Wirth twins (Jennifer and LeeAnne) seeing the most action for these perennial championship contenders. As is often the case with a 575-enrollment school, Seton coach Karen Self plays freshman, but four is abnormal.

NEW YORK — Santa's sleigh didn't make it in time for Christmas for some this year due to shipping problems at UPS and FedEx.
Christmas isn’t really about some fat guy sliding down the chimney. The significance of it should represent a spirit of “Peace on earth and goodwill toward man,” but it’s Christ’s birth foremost.
There’s nary a chimney at Leisure World Chiropractic in Mesa, but more than 40 homemade stockings were still hung with care and loaded with presents to donate to children at a Valley domestic violence shelter.
More than 200 children in Gilbert will receive at least one present underneath their Christmas tree due to the efforts of many volunteers living in a Gilbert active adult community.
As you know, or if you don’t know, I’ll tell you this: “The Velveteen Rabbit” play is a Christmas story.
After you've stuffed yourself with turkey and taters and gravy and pie and — of course — stuffing, you might be ready to do penance before the next rush of holiday calories.
When it comes time to gather for the impending onslaught of holiday meals, many of us are often scrambling to choose the perfect wine to bring to the gathering (or serve if you're hosting).
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.
