OB-GYN Dr. Tamar Gottfried Believes Hiking is the Perfect Way for Pregnant Women to Optimize Their Health

Dr. Tamar Gottfried expects a bit of a baby boom in 2021.

Chino Bandido Moving to New Location After 31 Years

Last week, Pancho was taken from Chino Bandido.   It wasn’t a robbery – the 7,500-pound black granite bear statue was moved from the legendary Chinese-Mexican-Jamaican fusion eatery’s original location at 19th Avenue and Greenway Road to its new home at Bell Road and Third Avenue. After more than three decades in the same building, one of the Valley’s most beloved holes-in-the-wall is relocating.  “After 31 years, I knew it was time for a change,” says Eve Lee Collins, who opened Chino Bandido in 1991 with her husband, Frank…
