MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. — Myrtle Beach, this year celebrating the 75th anniversary of its incorporation, is the heart of South Carolina's $16.5 billion tourism industry.

I am a longtime Republican Conservative and Business owner. I congratulate Arizona State University and the many other colleges that are banning smoking and other forms of tobacco use on their Campuses.

A preschool wall in Mesa is covered in words, colors and pictures.
During a recent school day in Mesa, two girls in the district’s preschool program at the Mesa Education Center practiced writing the names of their classmates at a small desk. Another group of girls “washed” their babies in a pretend tub.
The NRA and their willing allies — denial, deception, and deflection — are working overtime in the nation’s newspapers, and our Valley dallies are no exception.
Boy, do I feel sorry for smokers these days.
Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett spoke to an audience of around 80 Wednesday at the Chandler chamber of Commerce’s economic update luncheon, attempting to shed light on a sometimes murky, sometimes confusing state budget scenario in recent years.
Fearing new federal laws and regulations, a state legislator wants to provide legal cover for Arizonans who do not want to obey them -- and penalties for federal officials who try to enforce them.

Mike McClellan’s headline should be that “Mexican cartels are well armed due to failure to enforce existing laws in Mexico. (Or, Mexican cartels are lawless criminals).
