Money may or may not be able to buy happiness, but a new WalletHub report shows that, on average, Arizonans are somewhat less happy with their lives than much of the rest of the nation. And part of the state's ranking at No. 31 is because income is below the national average and is not growing.

Janet Hagberg was the first person who defined the experience for me. I had lived through it, but I didn’t know what to call it. In a book entitled, “The Critical Journey,” Janet called the experience, simply, “The Wall.” My summary goes like this. Many people begin their walk of faith, and everything goes as they expected.

But somewhere along the way things go wrong. Terribly wrong.

Economics questions are very often decided on emotion, not facts or logic. Nowhere is this truer than on the question of a government-mandated minimum wage. In a recent letter, Mr. Livdahl cites the rising prices of goods and services as a call to raise the mandated minimum wage. He believes this will make it easier for people to get through trade school or college. If your thinking does not extend beyond the end of a bumper sticker slogan, you might tend to agree. After all, it feels so good to envision the benefits of a government-mandated minimum wage. Unfortunately, on this question, emotion and economic reality clash head-on.

Hawkeye is a large mixed breed guy that came to Friends for Life Animal Rescue from the Yuma Humane Society. His family turned him in ... the owners said they had no time for him. He is about 2 years old. He is a very nice boy and silly as well. Volunteers at the shelter have been working with him, teaching him commands such as lay down. It has been observed that he is food possessive and, because of this, he should be an only animal in his new home. Hawkeye is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and microchipped. He currently lives at Friends for Life’s adoption center, 143 W. Vaughn Ave., in downtown Gilbert. His adoption fee is $125.
