    PHOENIX – A couple of arsonists may have picked the wrong shed to set on fire. The arsonists hit the Arizona Grand Resort at around 4 a.m. on July 13, 2010, according to Phoenix Police Sergeant Darren Burch. Burch says the two men set fire to a storage shed that was being used by Swank […]
  • McMahon: Black Sox

    Recently, I got a serious case of reality whiplash when I was reminded that baseball in America had the Negro leagues actively in existence until 1960. Now, Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier in 1947 and prior to that, black baseball players played segregated, apart and very often excellently, from 1920. But Negro leagues existed until 1960 --- in my lifetime.
  • McMahon: Love Story

    As all those hook-up TV reality shows try to come up with new angles for the romantically deprived, look what happens right in front of us. Bristol and Levi are engaged. Please! Give me a moment.

    So we're constantly reminded, as parents and grandparents, to be the best examples we can be to the kids -- to teach values and to emphasize the truly important things in life, not material possessions like imported luxury cars or opulent estates here and abroad.

    I know the World Cup final is on Sunday and I know Spain is playing the Netherlands. The fact that I can state both of those facts confidently must mean soccer is catching on.

  • McMahon: Rubber Stamping

    I was just told by a friend that she was sitting near some Lakers fans during the suns playoff series and when Phoenix took the court these Los Angeles people began to chant "racist - racist" at our guys - and our city and our state.
  • McMahon: Zipporah Farewell

    I forget things all the time. And no -- it's not a sign of advanced age. Like so many of you, I forget little things: my car keys, my cell phone, some people's names, an occasional movie title, stuff like that. But in my whole life as a parent, I've never forgotten a baby.
  • McMahon: Travel Advisory

    Have you heard about the country where beheadings are a regular thing? Where enemies bodies are found with their hearts cut out? A lawless place whose population doesn't trust the government or law enforcement.
