School officials are warning lawmakers that if they don't take a deal to settle the inflation adjustment lawsuit — and soon — taxpayers could be on the hook for another $1.3 billion.
“Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose,” goes the French proverb credited to Jean-Baptiste Alphonse Karr: “The more things change, the more they stay the same.” It’s not that a society or organization cannot be transformed. But such change is often cosmetic or superficial. Reality isn’t altered at the deeper, more profound levels.
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. Out of genuine conviction, they attend church, learn from the Scriptures, volunteer, serve, give, and become “productive, committed, faithful, Christians” (whatever that exactly means, who knows?). But somewhere along the way things go wrong. Terribly wrong.

Words are powerful creatures. Sometimes sleek and smooth, sometimes coarse and rough. Once they’re out there, we can’t snatch them back, tame them, or change them. Of course, not all words are hurtful or intended to wound. But words that hurt can kill us slowly and painfully, like a torturer. They cut away at our confidence, they eat up our self-esteem. While we might be able to maintain outward façade of normality, we inwardly shrivel and die. In those hidden depths, we can look and feel like “The Scream,” by Edvard Munch.
FLAGSTAFF — Getting to the Grand Canyon Skywalk used to include a teeth-chattering drive over a washboard road fraught with dips and twists.
What do Kenosha, Wisconsin, and Cape Cod, Massachusetts, have in common? Besides the fact that they are both splendid, waterfront communities, probably not much. Except this: Seventy-five years ago this week, these towns were the first public release points for one of the greatest films ever. “The Wizard of Oz.”
Hear that? There it is again. It sounds like beat-up Ford trucks on dirt roads and boys in overalls going fishing. It sounds like front-porch stories and sticky Mississippi summers. It sounds like wistful if-onlys and lovely lullabies and bluegrass jigs. Oops, I must have left my latest Amos Lee album playing.

The jobs may not be returning very fast, but a new report Monday shows the Arizonans who are employed are loosening up on their wallets.
I once approached my life and work as if I was building a house. Drive a nail here. Lay a block there. Smear a bit of paint in the corner. Cut out a window now and again. Figuratively, this is how I treated my life, and it is a solid, powerful image. It is also an image with plenty of biblical roots.

Annalisa is a beautiful 1-year-old Shar-Pei with great markings and a great personality. This charming, sweet, affectionate girl loves attention from people, big and small, and is very willing to trade kisses for kisses. Annalisa enjoys snuggling with or napping next to you. She knows basic commands such as sit and takes treats very gently from your hand. She can also drink water straight from a bottle. Show Annalisa a toy box and she’ll get right to work carrying each toy into a different area of the house. Annalisa likes to fetch tennis balls, play with rope toys, and gnaw on bones. One of her favorite games is playing with a running water hose — she’ll jump into the spray, chase the water, and after the water is shut off, she’ll paw at the hose trying to get the water to reappear.
