The recent destruction of Downtown murals, including two early Ted DeGrazia pieces, has local art advocates feeling pinched by “progress.”
At Art Detour the first weekend in March, thousands of people wandered the streets of Downtown Phoenix, craning their necks to see into local art galleries and bobbing their heads to bands jamming on outdoor stages.

Roosevelt Street: two murals painted by renowned Tucson artist Ettore “Ted” DeGrazia more than 65 years ago.

Valley physicians encourage early puberty exams to detect an alarming but easily treatable condition that causes rapid sexual development in children.
Puberty in girls brings with it a host of changes – mood swings, body development, hair in new places and, soon after, a monthly visit from “Aunt Flo.” When Donna Turner started noticing some of these signs in her granddaughter – specifically breast development and tears that started “at the drop of a hat” – the Ahwatukee grandmother was concerned, and not just because puberty is a difficult stage, but because Turner’s granddaughter was only 6 years old.
