Maryvale Teachers Will Get a Well Deserved End of the Year Treat

Maryvale teachers will get a well-deserved, end of the year treat when the Million Dollar Teacher Project recognizes educators with a prize package, food and appreciation at Peter Piper Pizza, May 22.  The Feel like a Million Dollars celebrates schools where students and staff vote, and one teacher will be awarded the Green Owl prize package, valued at over $1,000.  The Million Dollar Teacher Project began in 2016 by Lloyd Hopkins, who worked in the Alhambra School District.  His organization supports teachers and education by increased recognition, compensation and support and where every student is taught by a highly trained, qualified, understanding and engaged teacher.


Maryvale Put On Its First-ever Career and Technical Education (CTE) Expo

Maryvale put on its first-ever Career and Technical Education (CTE) Expo, May 11. The expo was a Disney-themed fashion show with original designs and creations by Amanda Jacob’s Fashion 3-4 students. The fashion show was a CTE collaborative effort with four different CTE programs contributing. The lights and music were designed and run by students in Patrick Shanahan’s Technical Theatre class, the food for the V.I.P. section was created and served by Adrian Lamos’ Culinary students, and the event was documented by Jacob Dunklee’s Video Journalism class. The expo, which was sold out, was a great display of CTE real world application.

The Indoor Football League's Arizona Rattlers play against the Nebraska Danger. 


Koch squares off with Reds for first time

The D-backs return home to open a three-game series against the Reds on Monday afternoon at 1:10 p.m. MST at Chase Field. Right-hander Matt Koch will get the start for the D-backs in his first career appearance against Cincinnati, which sends Homer Bailey to the hill. The game kicks off a six-game homestand that also includes three games with the Marlins.


Road trip ends in defeat; offense stymied again

The D-backs are hoping that a return home will heat up their bats after the offense struggled again Sunday afternoon in a 2-1 loss to the A's at the Oakland Coliseum. Zack Greinke went six innings and allowed two runs, but picked up the loss as the offense mustered just three hits.


Options aplenty for D-backs at 25th overall

Sustainability is a word that general manager Mike Hazen has talked about often since being named the D-backs' GM following the 2016 season. In order for the mid-market D-backs to be able to do that, they have to have a steady pipeline of talent coming through the system, which is why Hazen puts such an emphasis on the Draft.


Greinke looks to get first May victory

The D-backs wrap up the three-game series with the A's, and a nine-game road trip, on Sunday afternoon with Zack Greinke on the mound for a 1:05 p.m. MST start against Frankie Montas. Greinke took the loss in his last outing when he allowed four runs -- all of which came via three home runs -- over six innings against the Brewers at Miller Park. Greinke is 3-0 with a 2.70 ERA in nine games (six starts) at the Oakland Coliseum.

My New Dream Girl

Well it has been a while since I posted. I guess after finding out my dream girl was having a baby by another guy I just wasn’t in the mood to post. But I’m back folks! So I have a new dream girl. It is a bit of a long story so sit back,pour a cup of coffee and relax. So I have been stalking the Facebook page of the bar I use to work at-ya know how a single guys does when he has no life. I saw some pictures of a beautiful girl that bartends there. Blond hair,beautiful smile…just perfect. Of course I figured I would never have a chance with her-specially since she is about 20 years younger. But a guy can dream right? So a couple days ago I was looking around seekingarrangements to see if anyone new had signed up and who do I see? Yep that girl! We will call her…Tanya…So I figured hey send her a message who knows what might happen. She sent me a message back and we sent a few more messages back and forth. I gave her my number and SURPRISE she sends me a text! So we have been talking for a couple days now. She even says she likes older guys and not the young military guys that come into the bar where she works. We are planning on meeting this week. So we will see what happens…I have my fingers crossed and won’t be surprised if she disappears before we actually meet….but I might just actually have found my future wife-or she may just “ghost” on me like so many flakey girls do. Stay tuned..maybe the Single Guy won’t be single much longer!
