Business Briefcase: June 21, 2017

Hello, readers, and welcome to the scorching edition of the Business Briefcase.

Unfortunately, this column had to be finished before the high temperature could be set on Tuesday, when it’s forecast to hit 120 degrees. Because the laws of physics currently prohibit me from traveling back in time to update the print version (and I do not have the clearance to stop the presses for such trivial matters), I’ll have to give a choose-your-own ending.

Read this if it did reach 120 degrees:

Business Briefcase: June 14, 2017

Howdy, all, and welcome to the Business Briefcase.

I hope everyone enjoyed the “nice” temperatures over the last few days. We’re not exactly opening our windows, but I think mid-90s temperatures qualify as nice this time of year.

By next week’s issue, summer will have officially hit. That’s right, June 20 is the first day of summer.

Business Briefcase: June 7, 2017

Hello again, readers, and welcome to the Business Briefcase!

It’s the first issue in June, which means we’re seven days into the driest month of the year.

While it usually feels like it never rains here in the Valley, it’s especially true in June. A whopping .02 inches on average is all we get this month. Less than one millimeter!

Business Briefcase: May 31, 2017

Welcome to the Business Briefcase, readers.

If you’re anything like me, you’re usually late for a few things in life. But as the old saying goes, better late than never!

I definitely took that to heart over the weekend, and accomplished a major spring-cleaning session. Technically, it’s still spring until June 20, no matter what the heat index says.

Business Briefcase - May 24, 2017

Welcome to the Business Briefcase, readers. Glad to have you aboard.

This week’s edition will serve in memoriam to a West Valley landmark: the Phoenix Trotting Park.

I’m sure by now everyone is familiar with last week’s story on the upcoming demolition of the trotting park by reporter Glenn Gullickson. If not, I’ll give a quick summary. The Phoenix Trotting Park, near Loop 303 and Interstate 10 in Goodyear, is set to be demolished by the end of this year.

Business Briefcase - May 17, 2017

Welcome to the Business Briefcase, everyone, glad to have you aboard.

First off, I’d like to extend a big congratulations to all of the students graduating this month. So here it is: congrats!

I’m sure it felt like it took forever to get here for college and high school students alike, but I assure you, it was the proper amount of time. It only moves at one speed, unless you’re a VCR (sorry, a digital recorder these days), or in line at Disneyland.

Business Briefcase: May 10, 2017

Welcome to the Business Briefcase, readers!

I’d like to wish everyone a Happy Mother’s Day a few days in advance. Specifically all the mothers, just to clear that up.

We’re used to celebrating Mother’s Day on the second Sunday of May, but that’s not the case for much of the world. In fact, one could do a world tour of celebrating Mother’s Day, starting in Norway on the second Sunday of February and ending in Indonesia on Dec. 22. Every month except January and September has at least one day celebrating mothers across the world.
