There’s no greater nightmare than the loss of a baby. Sadly, the nightmare has become a reality for many Arizona families.
I recently read the article in the Scottsdale Progress regarding the Civic Center Mall "renovation" project. It is amazing to me that as much as the City of Scottsdale and the council solicit citizen input they continue to disregard it on a regular basis or try to insinuate that the opinions…
The regulation of speech in any medium should naturally prompt debate amongst us, as the freedom of speech is central to our democracy; but what happens when that speech is inciting and hateful?
