Sharon Lin's Arizona Daily Star Based Doppelgänger

Now there are two women getting ready to retire that won't move to Pima County, even though they love the hiking and birds? What have we done to our collective reputation as a county?

Another highlight from the recent Star comments by Cynthia Ann:

We have been visiting Tucson almost every year since 1985.We are avid birders and hikers and love the flora and fauna of the Sonoran Desert. Now that we are getting ready to retire, we have made 2 trips to Pima County to look at real estate. We have been looking for a burnt adobe with a pool and stable. All the retirement advice books tell you to subscribe to the local paper to get a feel for the local issues. Boy, has that been a big surprise. The stories about Clarence Dupnik in the ADS is just one of a long list of reasons why Tucson and Pima County would not be a good place for us to retire. We're Democrats from a blue state on the east coast, but we wouldn't fit in with your politics. Better to be a snowbird and not get involve with local issues.
