- 11. Gilbert Watch Supports Warren Petersen for Arizona Senate
It has never been more important than now to elect solid conservatives with a voting record that backs up their rhetoric. So it is with Warren Petersen, who is running for Arizona Senate in LD12. As a state representative, he stood up for families and the unborn, for local support and control of education, and for the independent business person. His votes are testimony to his fight against overbearing regulations that hurt businesses and our economy. He has repeatedly protected our Second Amendment rights. Rep. Petersen is very knowledgeable about complex issues, and he knows how to protect the hard-working taxpayer from the big spenders at the Capitol.Click here to read more
- 12. Jake Hoffman for Queen Creek Council: Op-Ed
Queen Creek Council candidate Jake Hoffman recently published an Op-Ed that appeared in AZ Central titled My Turn: 3 ways to spend new Queen Creek money.
I invite you to read it and comment. Always forward thinking, Hoffman was the clearest, most conservative voice during his term as a Higley Unified School District board member. In like manner, Jake Hoffman has laid out a plan for how Queen Creek can best utilize the new mid-decade census money it is slated to receive over the next four years. With a town in desperate need of roads and a gross indebtedness of nearly $200 million, it is of paramount importance that this new revenue be strategically earmarked to address Queen Creek's most pressing priorities.
Jake has asked that you vote for both him and Natasha Schaeler to the town council on August 30. They will be consistent voices for the priorities that matter most to Queen Creek citizens.

- 13. Bruce Barton Passes, Husband of Rep. Brenda Barton
LD6 Representative Brenda Barton lost her husband, Bruce, suddenly, following a brief hospitalization. Bruce was Rep. Barton’s right arm. Like Brenda, Bruce was a passionate patriot, a defender and fighter for individual liberty, at a time when too many people look to government to solve their problems. He was completely devoted to Brenda. He will be painfully missed. May Brenda feel God's comfort and Light as she carries on. Please pray for Brenda and her family during this very difficult time.

- 14. Il Silencio
Thank you Christopher Ames for sharing this.
Please take a moment to read this introduction and then listen to the beautiful trumpet of a 13 year old young lady who plays with an Angel on her shoulder! About six miles from Maastricht, in the Netherlands, lay buried 8,301 American soldiers who died in "Operation Market Garden" in the battles to liberate Holland in the fall and winter of 1944. Every one of the men buried in the cemetery, as well as those in the British and Canadian military cemeteries, has been adopted by a Dutch family who mind the grave, decorate it, and keep alive the memory of the soldier they have adopted. It is even the custom to keep a portrait of "their" American, British or Canadian soldier in a place of honor in their home. Annually, on "Liberation Day," May 4th, memorial services are held for "the men who died to liberate Holland." The day concludes with a concert. The final piece is always "Il Silenzio" a memorial piece commissioned by the Dutch and first played in 1965 on the 20th anniversary of Holland's liberation. It has been the concluding piece of the memorial concert ever since.Click here to read more
- 17. Arizona Rep Warren Petersen (LD12) - Always a Champion
Today, May 13, Rep. Petersen received a letter from the Center for Arizona Policy informing him that he received another perfect score in standing up for families, the sanctity of life, and marriage during the last session.
States Rep. Petersen:
"As you know the family is the fabric of society and, as government leaders, it is incumbent upon us to do all we can to protect the family, life, and the institution of marriage. Unfortunately these values are under attack. This next election cycle is an important one.
"In spite of some disappointments and setbacks, Arizona has made great strides over the last 6 years. For example we are now the 4th most pro-life state in the union. This has primarily been due to the fact that we have had a Republican governor, and a Republican legislature whom we have been able to hold to a pro-life, family and marriage platform. Our State could easily fall into Democratic hands if we don't all do our part in the next few months. Not all of us can be elected officials. But all of us can find a good candidate to support. All of us can find one person that wasn't going to vote and get them to the polls. All of us can put a yard sign in front of our houses. The primary election is in just over 90 days. Please do what you can to make sure that we elect people who best represent your values into office."Click here to read more
