When Bessie Medigovich visited her beloved patient, Wayne Pomeroy, shortly before he died in April, the Hospice of the Valley nurse had no idea the affable 98-year-old was a bona fide Mesa icon. All she saw was an extremely kind man and “very family-oriented person” adored by his four girls. 

What’s The Buzz? ‘Tis noble of man to work and to give …

I had the opportunity to attend the recent Gilbert Arizona Welfare and Self-Reliance Facility dedication. Presiding Bishop Gerald Causse dedicated the facility to God, and to those that it will serve. This building and those that work there are called to serve by giving.

Creative Spending: A Guide To Utilizing Coffee Shop Gift Cards

With the recent clarifications on the Word of Wisdom published on The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints website dated 15 August 2019, the official Church document states that “Church leaders have clarified that several substances are prohibited by the Word of Wisdom, including . . . green tea, and coffee-based products.” For those who have been enjoying these products at places like Starbucks® or other coffee shops or even at home this is a bit of a shift.

Creamy Ranch Lady: Septuagenarian Serves Up Pizza Slices And Personality

“I’m 24—that’s the age of an entrepreneur,” she says, eyes twinkling. “I have the knees of a healthy, athletic 15-year-old girl.” But on the last point, she grows serious. “And I’m a happy person because I have God.”

Pie Takes Center Stage!

It is that time of year, full of family, friends, and definitely all the food. In our family, whether for Thanksgiving or Christmas, pie takes center stage. Every year I end up making about a dozen pies over the holidays. We make cherry, pumpkin, lemon meringue, chocolate, apple and anything else that tickles my fancy.

Another key is keeping the butter cold and your crust chilled until they are ready to be baked.

Lobby Performers: Holiday Music at the Mesa Main Post Office

For years, the Mesa Main Post Office, located at 135 N. Center Street, has made it possible for the community to enjoy the last two on the list simultaneously. While customers wait, local musicians volunteer to perform concerts free of charge. Linda Kay Hartmann, who arranges the concerts at the post office each year, explains, “We have found that cheerful music adds to the spirit of Christmas and lights the spirit of those waiting.” 

Mission Preparation and Unexpected Delays

Many missionaries find themselves facing unexpected delays while working through the application process. With the more in-depth evaluation for prospective missionaries, it can feel like intense opposition. It’s important to remember that, with the help of the Spirit, all trials will come out to our good. Delays in the application process are in every missionary family’s best interest.
