during the 2012 elections by Lindsay Ferrier, special to HLN.
Steve and Julie Gild are hardly the only husband and wife who
disagree when it comes to politics. Friendships and family ties
across the nation are being tested by the upcoming election.

hard time relating with their
spouse, family, or friends over
political views. A woman was
even curious if she should
divorce her husband over it. It
reminded me of an article I read
With everyone going back to school, library outings, and activities, the kids come in contact with
a lot of other children throughout their day. The change of the weather is the time of year my
skin care regime also changes. The monsoon season is out and we are back to arid Arizona. Over
the years I have used many different flowers to make face wash and this zinnia recipe is one of my

With more than 2,000 teaching positions unfilled soon after the start of this school year, Arizona
school district superintendents are employing creative short-term solutions to fill the vacancies and

Goldwater Lake at Goldwater Park
is located just a four miles from
downtown Prescott. It is a small
lake with 15 acres of water surface,
but features tons of family fun
with park recreation and picnic
facilities. The lake is small but has
great views and perfect waters for canoeing and kayaking and also features a
great hiking trail. It is open all year. It is the great setting for families with
different ages of children, as the younger ones can play at the smaller red
playground, and the older kids can play at the larger green playground, enjoy a
hike, or kayak.
