She came through the surgery with flying colors, the tumor was not cancer; she is home and doing fine. Her recovery has been amazing. They did not have to shave her head, they went into her skull just above her left ear. Thank you Lord and thank all of you for your E-mails, thoughts and prayers. - Don Goldwater"

·       Congressman Paul Gosar: Friday I announced my co-sponsorship of the Common Core Resolution, legislation that strongly denounces President Obama’s attempt to coerce states into adopting Common Core by instituting preferences in federal grants and flexibility waivers. As a father, I know that a good education is critical to every child’s success. This is a key reason why I vehemently oppose national standards. One size doesn’t fit all. Adopting national standards leads to national tests, which in turn lead to the establishment of a national curriculum and teachers simply teaching for the test. When it comes to running federal programs, the federal government gets an ‘F,’ making national standards a recipe for disaster. Involvement by the federal government in education only disrupts the fundamental relationship between students, parents and teachers. Bureaucrats in Washington, D.C. don't know the educational needs of students in Yuma, Buckeye or Kingman.
