• Ottawa University is expanding its presence in the Valley. The university will open a new residential campus in Surprise this fall and aims to enroll 250 students in its first semester. The non-profit, Christian university has been operating in Arizona since 1977.

• A Phoenix attorney just provided a big boost to victims of child abuse. Patrick McGrody recently donated a 1970 Chevorlet Camaro Z-28, which sold at Scottsdale’s Barrett-Jackson auto auction for $130,000. The money is going to Childhelp, a non-profit charity that is dedicated to helping victims of child abuse and neglect and at-risk kids.

• Americans are expected to spend more money at the register this year. The National Retail Federation projects retail sales will grow about four percent in 2017. However, this does not include car, gas or restaurant sales.
