County attorney candidates tout experience in Tempe forum

Tim Nelson

Two challengers to sitting county attorney Andrew Thomas took the stage Tuesday night to debate who is best suited to take on the incumbent in November's general election.

Voter registration report shows Arizona may be 'going blue'

Support for the Democratic Party in Arizona has increased significantly, recent voter registration reports show.

First light-rail test declared a 'success'
Onlookers lined the streets in downtown Phoenix on Thursday morning, straining to catch a glimpse of the first light-rail test in downtown Phoenix, an event hosted by Valley METRO and Mayor Phil Gordon.

ASU arts centers host annual 'Family Fun Day'
Summer days in Tempe are long and hot, which doesn't give families much to do besides watching television and making occasional visits to the pool.

Devils to beat the heat in big white bubble

It's been like most summers for the ASU football team. Twice a week, dozens of players show up at the practice fields for informal workouts. No coaches, no whistles. Just the players calling their own plays and running their own drills.

Opinion: Use your political bifocals

The onslaught of presidential politics continues as November draws nearer, and students are getting more and more involved. We're joining campaigns, getting our friends interested and advertising our political allegiances through T-shirts, bumper stickers and even our Facebook profiles.

In the Obama versus McCain race, everyone has an opinion. But while we're busy advocating for either to become the next president, significant local elections here in Arizona are going unnoticed. Sure, local politics doesn't have all the glitz and glamour of its national counterpart, but when the people we put in office make decisions that hit so close to home, it only makes sense to know who you're voting for and why.

Opinion: All-Star selection process bogus

It's the day before the Major League Baseball All-Star Game. The final rosters were announced last week and, just like every year, sports web forums and comment threads are rampant with the "who doesn't deserve it" and "who got snubbed" posts.

I will admit I have not been following the season closely enough this year to be able to enter my two cents about this whole ordeal, so I won't go there. Besides, the NBA All-Star voting is ten times worse than baseball (Yao Ming need I say more?). But there's one thing about the baseball All-Star game that I have found unsettling recently.

It has to do with this "home- field advantage" crap.

Los Angeles band kicking off tour in Phoenix

Band names, and titles in general, that employ exclamation points always strike me as suspect.

Chapter two of 'Hellboy' series a heck of a film

We live in some strange times.

Fraser takes long, pointless 'Journey'
In the movies, a fine line exists that separates campy from dumb.
