Everyone is so untrue” ~ Billy Joel
It has come to my awareness that this day is National Honesty Day. First and foremost, as much as I dig Billy Joel I cannot accept, believe or even become a participant to and of those lyrics.

You might think our communities, state and nation are falling into an abyss, and as far as I’m concerned, you would be correct.
You might wonder what you can do to create a better community, state and nation. It’s your lucky day; I have a sure fire way to do just that.When was the last time someone did something unexpected for you? How did you feel?
WOW is what everyone says when they meet Shadow-he's that gorgeous!
Shadow is about a year old, laid-back, loves to be brushed, loves people...loves everything!
Shadow is sweet and gentle, despite being such a big boy; he's quite happy to curl up in your lap or just hang out with you, wherever you happen to be. Shadow is OK with other cats; he hasn't been assessed around dogs, though they don't seem to bother him, either...and he's kid friendly, too!
All Shadow wants is a forever home, a few kitty treats now and then-and to be brushed regularly so as to keep that fabulous coat...purrfect!
Grace is about 4 years old, sweet and a bit reserved.
This pretty blue-gray girl's eyes light up when she sees you coming and she likes nothing better than to go for walks and explore the world with her person by her side.
Grace has not been extensively assessed around other dogs, but seems to be OK; she is unknown around cats.
Grace would love to learn a few basic commands (like sit and stay) so she could be a real "canine good citizen" and go everywhere with her new best friend-you!
My Friends,It has been more than four years since we first met on the campaign trail. In that time we’ve experienced a lifetime of adventure, success, failure, passion, compromise, satisfaction and disappointment. To you all, I say “Thank you.” Thank you for giving me the honor of serving as your representative in the democratic process.
Dan and Susan, moved to San Tan Valley a couple years ago from Illinois. They knew that they wanted to start a business out here, but finding the right place was a bit of a challenge.
They looked up in the East Valley initially, but both decided that if they could find something here, locally, it would be easier for them as they would always be just down the road if they were needed.
They looked at a location near the Walmart at Hunt and Gary; but never got a call back. They looked at the new center across the street from Walmart, but size was an issue. Then they spoke with the new owners of the Shops at Copper Basin (2510 E Hunt Hwy Suite #22). After only a few conversations, the owners flew out from Texas to meet Dan and Susan and within a few months, Lavelle's Deli and Ice Cream was ready to open to the public.
To think that only one year ago, San Tan Valley residents drove out of the area, in order to get a tasty yogurt treat.
Then Sweetie Peaz Frozen Yogurt opened up and San Tan Valley residents all seemed to get a little bit sweeter.
Today, April 28th from 1pm-4pm, Sweetie Peaz threw a 1 year anniversary celebration to thank all its customers for their amazing support. With pink and green balloons hanging everywhere inside and out, San Tan Valley residents packed the store, to show their appreciation for Sweetie Peaz.
Relay for Life is supposed to mimic the journey of a cancer patient. Starting at 6pm and running through the night until 6am the following morning, we are reminded that cancer never sleeps. As someone who had never participated in a Relay for Life before, I wasn't sure what to expect. You go to the committee meetings, training, etc and you hear about how "amazing" this event really is. You hear that total strangers bond together and form a special trust. You hear that it will move you as you participate in each of the steps along the way. You hear about those people that share their stories and you remember the people in your life that you are "relaying for". I had never really thought about why I decided to make this year the year I would finally relay, but after hearing the stories from others, I gave it serious thought and eventually wrote about it. Nothing however could have prepared me for what I was going to feel, having participated in not only my first Relay for Life, but San Tan Valley's too.
