Chill out, not stress out during holidays

Posted December 21, 2012 by LARA SMITH

It’s supposed to be the most wonderful time of the year. Yet for many, it’s anything but. “If the holidays have you overwhelmed, you are not alone,” said Kristin Musch, TriWest Healthcare Alliance Behavioral Health educator. “Expectations are high, to-do lists are long and the budget tight, which can result in sadness, anger, frustration and…

Knowing ‘why’ powerful motivator

Posted December 14, 2012 by Capt. DAVID BREUER

Recently I’ve been making my way through a book called “Start With Why” by Simon Sinek who believes absolutely in the motivating power of the people you lead knowing the why of what they’re asked to do. Although this book and the majority of the analogies within are business centric, the message they convey can…

Civilian volunteer at tax center gives back

Posted December 14, 2012 by LUCILLE WILLIAMS

I started volunteering at Luke Air Force Base Tax Center in January. It has been a great experience. As a retired high school teacher of 33 years, I have no affiliation with the military, but I enjoy being able to give back to them for all they have done. How can we help those who…

Fly Over: ‘Resident Evil: Retribution’, ‘Rise of the Guardians’

Posted December 14, 2012 by Jayson Burns

On DVD: ‘Starship Troopers: Invasion’ It’s never fun being a fan of a series that constantly disappoints, as I’m sure most fans of the “Starship Trooper” films will confess. Now to handle the inevitable questions about the use of “film” in a plural sense, yes there have been direct-to-DVD sequels to the 1997 original and…

CSAF reading list worthwhile

Posted December 7, 2012 by Capt. TODD ZIELINSKI

Truth be told, it took me a few years of active-duty service before I fully realized what the “Chief of Staff Reading List” entailed. Like many, I heard the term thrown around, but it wasn’t until a few years ago that I realized it was a relatively short list of books recommended each year by…

Spouse’s volunteer experience at tax center time well-spent

Posted December 7, 2012 by RASHELLE TOOLEY

Being a military spouse can be lonely at times, especially when the military member is deployed. I like to fill my time by volunteering. In the past, I’ve volunteered for many things, but I never thought I would find myself at the Luke Air Force Base Tax Center. Our family had just moved to Luke…

Chaplain thoughts – December 7, 2012

Posted December 7, 2012 by Chaplain (Lt. Col.) Theadore Wilson,

“Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of overcoming it.” ~ Helen Keller I wrote about optimism last week and want to continue that theme today.

Fly Over: ‘Resident Evil: Retribution’, ‘Rise of the Guardians’

Posted December 7, 2012 by Jayson Burns and Macario Mora

In Video Stores: ‘Resident Evil: Retribution’ Since the series first started, I’ve had very mixed feelings toward the “Resident Evil” movies. The first one I thought was a fairly decent video game adaptation, and the sequels “Apocalypse” and “Extinction” had some redeeming qualities despite being tremendously flawed. “Resident Evil: Afterlife” I think should be chopped…
