Nobody will ever deprive the American people of the right to vote except the American people themselves and the only way they could do this is by not voting.

-Franklin D. Roosevelt

It’s that time of year again! Time to let your voice be heard and tell everyone what you believe is the best of the best! Every year the Arizona Daily Sun asks its readers to tell them who they love the most for their Best of Flag Edition.

Flagstaff is rich with history, including its part in one of the most historical events on, and off, Earth.

Many people don't realize that our beloved astronauts did a large part of their training for the Apollo Missions, right here in Flagstaff.

Lowell Observatory is in full swing of celebrating the 50th anniversary of these missions and moon landings and last year requested we create something special in honor of these events.

“There is only one happiness in life: to love and be loved.” – George Sand

Did you know that Valentine's Day is a holiday celebrated in many other countries besides the good old USA? 

It's true! However, in most other lands, it's a celebration only for lovers. But here in America, we look at it as an all-inclusive holiday where you can celebrate your love for whoever you want, friend, family or lover!

That being said, we decided...

We can all use some guidance, especially around the holidays, when we are at a loss for gift ideas.

Sometimes, one of the best gifts you can give is an experience. 

THAT Place Projects Gift Cards. It's not about buying them dinner. It's something they can enjoy with friends and family, something they can create memories with.

"We should all do something to right the wrongs that we see and not just complain about them."      -Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis

So darn it, if your favorite bakery, or your favorite waitstaff, or even that best cocktail you have grown to love doesn't win the Arizona Daily Suns "Best of Flagstaff 2018," then we don't want to hear about the injustice you've helped create!

Yes, it's that time of year when we ask a...

/spriNG/ verb “to move or jump suddenly forward”;  noun “the season after winter and before summer”.  

Could these definitions EVER be more apropos than this year in Flagstaff.  Our “Winter” has, apparently, by-passed Spring and gone to Summer.
