I knew the Suns would be on this list

Like the article said, the Suns have been to the playoffs a lot, in fact statistically they were one of the winningest teams in the 80s and 90s but could never get past other teams like the spurs and Lakers. They also got screwed several times like in 76 and 07 (Robert Horry should burn in hell). In the 1993 finals, game 6, Danny Ainge decided to roam around on defense and left John Paxson open. With 4 seconds left in the game he drained a three, game/series over. I will never forgive him for that.

The suns have a good team this year, but just like the last couple years the problem isn't offense, it's how many points they give up to the other team.

New artsy shopping center The Churchill provides students new options

Three blocks north of Taylor Place in downtown Phoenix is a new shopping center built entirely out of recycled shipping containers which offers a relaxing hang-out spot for students.

This new shopping center is The Churchill and opened during the end of August 2018. Located at First and Garfield streets, the space brings a variety of new local retailers and restaurants to the area.

Julie Oberholtzer owns a business in The Churchill called Cosas, a boutique that sells authentic Mexican gifts, like home goods, jewelry and kitchen items.

“My family and I lived in Guadalajara, Mexico for four years and just fell in love with everything about the country of Mexico (such as) the textures, the culture, the food (and) the people,” she said.

The Churchill also has other restaurants such as Freak Brothers Pizza and Breadwinner and bars like Pobrecito and Brill Line. Also located in the space are retailers such as State Forty-Eight and Sauvage Bottle Shop.

Julie's husband, Ryan Oberholtzer, owns a Mexican restaurant called Provecho in The Churchill. She said they have been dedicated to this project since the start and were excited to join having seen similar successful shipping container businesses in Mexico.

“Especially for (an) ASU campus, it gives the students and faculty a place to come congregate, a place to come hang out to study, to drink coffee (and) to eat,” Oberholtzer said.
