It’s said that whenever George Washington felt a cold coming on, he would eat an onion, believing it would help keep the illness away. If nothing else, it would keep meetings shorter.

The question is, why does cutting onions make our eyes tear up?

Neighborhood Spotlight: Chandler, AZ

October 16, 2012

If you’re new to town or this is your first time exploring Chandler, Arizona, then you’re in the right spot. Chandler has been a town of firsts since its beginning.
In 1891, Dr. Alexander Chandler settled on a ranch south of Mesa. He was the first veterinary surgeon in the area. Eventually, the area became known as the Chandler Ranch and was the site chosen for the luxurious Hotel San Marco, the state’s first golf resort. Chandler officially became a town in 1912, which of course means the town’s centennial celebration is currently underway!
