I wanted to provide you with a market update, from a couple different sources.

There are 3 weekends left in October and a few fun things to do if you want to get out and do something! Old Tucson Studios (on the West side of town) is once again continuing to scare everyone with Nightfall- Harvest of Fear! This is their rendition of a ghost town with live acts, a haunted hous...

In order for the house to pass the bailout/rescue package there had to be a lot of pork added to the bill. After attending the Community Roundtable on Fin...
The saying for years has been "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle". The Green movement has gone much further in the last couple years, and green tecniques that have been around for 20 or 30 years are becoming more popular. There are tips out there on how to reduce your carbon footprint for every area of your...
