Re: “Donald’s Folly

The unions are leaving liberals for Trump as the Democrats have become the party of minorities. wait until they correct their title to majority. Will they still need to be represented by Democrats?

Turn out the lights, that party's over.

Re: “Donald’s Folly

People are sick of high immigration rates and low wages. That's about the Trump phenomenon in a nutshell. Democrats have abandoned the working class in favor of supporting immigrants as well as the cheap-labor industries who employ them.
They're reaping what they've sown over the last 30 or 40 years.

Re: “United for the Kids

Seems bureaucracy to me. What is compensation package. How many people r employed at this nice downtown office.

Very important for administrators to teach complete class/subject for entire school year; not a class or two.

Re: “Donald’s Folly

The "Last Hurrah" of Raul Grijalva looking for one last election.

Grijalva SEES the writing on the wall,

Like a phoenix arising from the ashes: the "Trump Phenomena" marks the death of decades old Tucson City and Pima County Open Border Policy and the "Raza-Revolution."

The great American "Silent Majority" has finally awaken to disavow and change the 50 plus year old left wing shift in American social policy.

The multi decades long work and sacrifice of "Pioneer" Arizona Activists including but not limited to Glen Spenser, Kathy McKee, Laura Leighton, Rus Dove, Wes Bramhall, Clyde Philips, Cindy Kolb, and yes Yours Truly Roy Warden, aka "the Notorious Mexican Flag Burner," and activist groups like the Minutemen (including Al Garza, Chris Simcox, James Gilchrist), You Don't Speak For Me" (Col. Al Rodriquez), and MAIA (MIchele Dellacroce) set the stage for the downfall of La Raza.

WHEN I remarked this to Pima County Public Defender Margot Cowan at the Trump rally last week, Margot looked "sick." I thought she was going to puke!

Re: “Donald’s Folly

Where are the jobs Raul? Where is the leadership? Where is border security? Why is Cuba more important than national security? What have you done to our healthcare?

Step aside Raul, you have failed us.

Re: “Divided

Neighborhood Plans were written to protect neighborhoods from incursion from commercial interest. Last year, when the city voted to amend the mid-town Broadmoor-Broadway Village Neighborhood Plan and the Arroyo Chico Area Plan to allow a parcel previously zoned for residential to be rezoned for parking (specifically prohibited in the neighborhood and area plans) despite overwhelming opposition from the surrounding neighborhoods, Steve Kozachik promised there would not be a domino effect. Well now, the next domino has fallen. It looks as if the current council is willing to amend those neighborhood plans as necessary, and neighborhoods accross the city will now be subject to the whims of commercial interests. BTW, the apartments raised to make way for parking?? A beautiful set of small garden aparpartments with and association to Joessler, and with Section 8 housing; no help was given to the renters pushed out of their mid-town residences.

Re: “Divided

this isn't about an ever expanding park. where is the park expanding to? There are residences filling the space between the park and Houghton. This is about those homeowners not wanting businesses creeping into their little country club.

Re: “Divided

Hi Dan, there isn't much cactus out here as we are higher in elevation. It seems you got the impression that I support a new Fry's, I do not. The point I was trying to make was that a store with a lot lower height could be built if they had any desire to work with a neighborhood.

Re: “Divided

Tucson city council ALWAYS rubber-stamps what developers wants, even if it's to give away traffic bearing streets, like they did to 5th avenue so "the district" apartments could be built. It's insane how stupid and greedy these people are.
Fry's doesn't need a new location there on houghton! They already have a store on the next major street west, 22nd and Harrison!

Re: “Divided

Julie, we don't need a grocery store at this location. We certainly don't need one that doesn't want to adhere to 30 years of history, culture and laws.

The Planning Commission was split, and rightfully so.

There are so many of those Haagen grocery chains are now closed? Move there. I don't want MORE strip malls in Tucson before the ones we have are revitalized.

"2 miles from the ever expanding park". I love this park. Once a strip mall is built, it never reverts back to nature.

It was unnecessary to begin with, the zoning law change makes it something to fight against.

Re: “Divided

I would happily take videos inside the Rita Ranch Fry's Marketplace. To show the 20 feet of open space between displays and the ceilings! Kroger foods could easily design a building that would fit into the neighborhood.
