Unlucky Weather in Phoenix Arizona

The State of Arizona comprises the extreme south-western portion of the United States. It is bounded on the north by Utah, on the east by New Mexico, on the south by Mexico, and on the west by California and Nevada. A woman had been living in Phoenix Arizona for 13 months. While talking to a friend of hers back east, she spent a considerable amount of time boasting about how wonderful it is to live there.

“The scenery is beautiful, everyone is so friendly, and the weather is gorgeous,” she noted.

That fall, her friend came to Phoenix AZ to visit for a week. The first day she was there, it rained. The woman was so disappointed, especially after claiming how wonderfully sunny it always was.

“I can’t believe it’s raining. It almost never rains,” she whined.

In an attempt to console her, her friend replies, “But it’s a dry rain.”

Tempe’s annual “Santa Show” airs tonight by quotes

Tempe’s annual “Santa Show” airs tonight

 

TEMPE, Ariz. – Forget standing in line at the mall, waiting hours to
talk to the big guy in red, only to find that your little one is
terrified of sitting on his lap. Tempe has the perfect way to tell Santa
what you’d like for the holidays: The Santa Show.

 

For the sixth year, Tempe 11 will air the live call-in show hosted by
Dick Steely and starring the man of the month, Santa Claus. It is a
popular tradition for Tempe children who watch the show live on the
city’s cable channel, and for the viewers everywhere who watch it live
on the city’s Web site, www.tempe.gov/tempe11
<http://www.tempe.gov/tempe11> .

 

The show is the creation of Media Services Producer Greg Wolfe, a
17-year city employee, as a way to put smiles on the faces of the young
and young-at-heart during the holidays. He produces the annual show
along with Media Services Administrator Skip Neeley and Media Services
Producer Jason Wolf.

 

This year, The Santa Show will air Monday, Dec. 11, starting at 6:30
p.m. Children can call 480-350-8900 to talk to Santa. The show could
last until 8 p.m. because the crew never cuts off a child waiting on the
line to talk to Santa – they’ll keep taking calls as long as they come
in. The show also features segments highlighting the many holiday events
in Tempe.



Tempe’s crisis response team lauded nationally by quotes

Tempe’s crisis response team lauded nationally

 

Award comes as CARE 7 celebrates 10 years in 2006

 

TEMPE, Ariz. – For the last decade, a dedicated group of staff and
volunteers responds whenever tragedy strikes in Tempe, comforting
victims and families in the aftermath of incidents like sexual assault,
homicide, robbery, suicide, drowning, domestic violence and fire.
Selflessly, they respond – sometimes in the middle of the night – and
never seek praise or recognition. Despite their modesty, accolades keep
coming.

 

The National League of Cities (NLC) awarded the City of Tempe’s Crisis
Response Team – known as CARE 7 – with the Silver Award in the 2006
Awards for Municipal Excellence. The award was announced at the National
League of Cities’ Congress of Cities and Exposition in Reno, Nevada, on
Dec. 8. The honor is one of several the program has received in its
10-year history, including being named a finalist in 2002 for Harvard
University’s Innovations in American Government Award.

 

CARE 7, a team of 25 professionally trained staff and volunteers,
provides around-the-clock crisis intervention services in Tempe. The
CARE 7 team gives emotional and practical support to the family or
person in crisis, enabling police and firefighters to handle law
enforcement, medical or fire emergency needs. The program’s name stands
for Crisis Assistance Response Effort. The numeral “7” is the Phoenix
Emergency Dispatch geographic locator for Tempe. 

 

Tempe Mayor Hugh Hallman said he is proud of the sensitivity and
practical assistance CARE 7 provides at a moment’s notice.

 

“Our most vulnerable residents, from children to the elderly, are
provided the highest quality intervention and grief support during the
worst of emergencies, often during the most traumatic incident of the
victim’s life,” he said.

 

CARE 7 recruits new volunteers twice a year and trainees go through a
rigorous, 30-hour Crisis Intervention Training Program at a cost of $45.
Volunteers commit to two shifts (four or six hours) per month for one
year, and they attend a monthly meeting to discuss their work and
continue their education. All volunteers must be at least 21, able to
climb stairs and lift small children. For more information about CARE 7,
please call 480-350-8032 or e-mail care7@tempe.gov.

 

Interview opportunities are available with CARE 7 volunteers. To inquire
about possibilities, please call Judy Tapscott at 480-350-5432.



Gila River Indian Community partners with City of Tempe by quotes

Gila River Indian Community partners with Tempe

First-ever donation will fund community programs and Fire Department

TEMPE, Arizona – The Gila River Indian Community has graciously committed
to using some of its gaming revenue in 2006 to fund youth, health and
fire training programs in Tempe. Community representatives will present
a check to the city at the Tempe City Council’s Dec. 14 meeting.

Under Arizona law, Native American communities with casinos must
contribute 12 percent of gaming revenues each year to area non-profits
or government entities. This is the first time the Gila River Indian
Community has given money to the City of Tempe and Tempe-area charities.

“These grants underscore the very important partnership between the city
and the Gila River Indian Community,” Mayor Hugh Hallman said. “We share
the goal of working together to improve the safety and quality of life
of our citizens. My colleagues on the City Council and I sincerely
appreciate the support.”

The Tempe Early Childhood Literacy Initiative will receive $103,702 over
two years, while a donation of $24,900 will help the Tempe Fire
Department purchase fire training equipment and materials. In addition,
the Tempe Family YMCA will receive $30,000 for its Youth Wellness Center
and Tumbleweed Youth Center will receive $16,000 to fund a Tempe Youth
Resource Center Outreach Specialist.
