Phoenix is starting to say goodbye to chain restaurants and hello to locally owned establishments. “We’ve really emerged as a culinary destination,” R.J. Price, vice president of marketing and events for Downtown Phoenix Inc., said. The award-winning chef and owner, Chris Bianco, brought New York-style pizza to Phoenix after moving to the desert city in the 1980s.
Phoenix is a rising star in the Valley of the Sun. With a strong sense of community, a developing downtown, and a growing arts and culinary scene, the desert city is in the middle of a cultural renaissance. Although most people may not think of Phoenix as much of a cultural hot spot, those who live there beg to differ. “It’s probably one of the most creative cities in the country,” said Catrina Kahler, publisher of the Downtown Phoenix Journal.
There’s never been a better time to be an artist in Phoenix. “A number of artists have decided to make Phoenix their canvas,” Catrina Kahler, publisher of the Downtown Phoenix Journal, said. “The murals around the restaurant were created out of my love for murals initially,” Silvana Salcido Esparza, chef and owner of Barrio Café, said.

There’s a lot of talk about why FBI Director James Comey was terminated from his job. President Trump says it was straightforward, telling NBC News, “He’s a showboat. He’s a grandstander. The FBI has been in turmoil. You know that. I know that. Everybody knows that.”
Many Democrats on Capitol Hill are now demanding that a special prosecutor look into Russia’s meddling into the 2016 election in the wake of President Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey. It’s even something Trump threatened Hillary Clinton with in a presidential debate. It makes sense that the idea originated during what was perhaps the biggest scandal in modern American history: Watergate.

While it’s difficult to compare taxes across decades, two common ways to measure are the dollar amount of tax cuts and the percentage taxes fall at the top individual income bracket. President John F. Kennedy is often credited with spearheading the first major tax cut in modern U.S. history, though President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the final legislation after Kennedy’s assassination. The Revenue Act of 1964 cut the rate for top tax bracket from 91 percent to 70 percent, as well as reducing the corporate tax rate from 52 percent to 48 percent.

President Trump repeatedly told his supporters that his administration would repeal and replace Obamacare quickly.
