After a long “cool” spring, summer is finally here. (That’s the bad news.) But the days when “everyone leaves” are long gone. There’s still plenty happening for singles; see the calendar section for what’s going on.

Technology is playing out in a lot of new and unexpected ways in relationships, and it’s taking the law -- and the courts -- a while to catch up. Meanwhile you’d think some counseling should be part of the “sentence” too.

If you’re heading out of town for awhile this summer, you can find our list of singles publications around the country through our web site (

If you’re in town, here’s a sum-mer date idea unique to our area: When there’s a dust storm forecast, head to one of the restaurants with a great view and have dinner while you watch the storm roll in! (You can see to some great duststorm pictures that Jeff took, on the Az. Department of Environmental Quality site, at

In town or out, summer will be over quicker than we expect, so get out, get involved with some fun singles’ activities, and enjoy!
