The hot sunny skies gave way to some clouds and respite from the heat. All who entered the park on Meadow Lane were greeted by the Fire Departments huge flag. It's a great reminder that we really do live in a special place.

While the dedication of the fireworks team in Kiwanis might be obvious, much of the community is behind the event long before the first BBQ, football toss, or glowstick.

Few movies capture honestly what it is like to be a teenager, but “Say Anything” is one of them. The 1989 film, rated PG-13, will show at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at Mesa Public Library. Admission is free.


In this cult classic, senior Lloyd Dobler (John Cusack) is in love with class valedictorian Diane Court (Ione Skye), a girl so far out of his league that on graduation day, rather than ask her to pose with him for a photo, he lurks near her while his friend surreptitiously snaps a shot.
