The recent layoffs at the Arizona Republic are also impacting the opinion pages, both print and online.  A recent Phoenix New Times blog post goes into some of the details. It seems that the community sections will no longer be accepting letters to the editor, opinion pieces and the popular My Turn columns. I kind […]

He works weekday nights, appearing on “Good Evening Arizona” and “3TV News at Nine.” When he started […]

The Valley is nothing if not segmented — and then segmented within its segments. Take Scottsdale, for example. There’s Old Town, Arcadia, North Scottsdale, etc. Or what about the Southeast Valley?
