Re: “Guest Commentary

He teach me some examples of the esoteric principles he learned from Professor Okazaki: the way of gentle teach ness; the perfection and the foundation of the martial arts in the forms and techniques; honor for parents; respect for tradition; and the most important thing in the martial arts, how to be humble, in my opinion was the hardest thing to learn

I think was an honor to meet Dai Shihan Joseph Holck, He teach me some examples of the esoteric principles he learned from Professor Okazaki: the way of gentle teach ness; the perfection and the foundation of the martial arts in the forms and techniques; honor for parents; respect for tradition; and the most important part to learn how to be humble.

TO THE TUCSON COMMUNITY,
Water Main Break

There are a great deal of political issues in Tucson, AZ .However as the pumps keep pumping we must stay focused on agenda, My agenda is on the water quality since Tucson Southside sits on a super fund site, for those of you who do not know what that is, I will explain it to you in simple words, The South Side Tucson International Airport area has been under Construction since the 1982 T.C.E. a contamination afflicting thousands and killing many of our loved ones this legal issue concluded in a Settlement Agreement Plaintiffs of 1,600 home owners in the community against the City of Tucson a municipal corporation and Tucson Airport Authority a non profit corporation, on 3/16/2015 after a study I have worked on for the past year putting in 19 hours a day and no weekends off I became more determined to keep the study and attend UCAB meetings at the El Pueblo neighborhood center every 2 months throughout the year. I had no clue what I was about to hear in a meeting room full of the responsible people who caused this horrific nightmare the Tucson International Airport , Superfund Site , Air Force Plant 44 Raytheon, The site 2002, also detected 1,4-dioxane, Hexavalent Chromium, including T.C.E. Trichloroethylene a manmade solvent known to cause cancer and neurological damage , many who have not done the study would never know how serious this issue is, recently I have been assisted by Environmental Justice Mr. Stephen Lester, who I have the pleasure meeting and working closely with, in Falls Church, VA. I will be at the Valencia Library the so Mothers Safe Water Force will hope to see you all come out and empower the community since it is there Tax Payer dollars, that are paying the clean up cost as well punitive damages with our children, grand children, and our next generation,
The potential "AT RISK " population in memory of my daughter who died of many cancers due to these senseless acts. including Lupus and Kidney failure My name is Linda I will be starting the introduction at 1:00pm on Saturday March 21, 2015 the 8th year anniversary of my daughters passing .

Re: “Open Letter to Governor Doug Ducey Regarding Civics Testing

You want adults to take the same test high school students take? That is outrageously stupid. A person's ability to do their job is not measured by silly exams. This article lacks a basic measure of intelligence I would expect from somone that calls themselves a writer.

Re: “Open Letter to Governor Doug Ducey Regarding Civics Testing

This civics law smacks of the Jim Crow Jelly Bean Test, am sure those who liked that law will love this one to! I see the same party who adopted all them angry Dixiecrats back in 1960's are behind this law so no surprise to me!

Re: “Open Letter to Governor Doug Ducey Regarding Civics Testing

One solution is the Boy Scouts, having 3 citizenship merit badges, my son, an Eagle Scout, got a 100% on the citizenship quiz of 100 questions at his high school which gave the test. So rather than stressing over passing the test, have your sons join Boy Scouts,

Re: “Open Letter to Governor Doug Ducey Regarding Civics Testing

Mike, why use a dog whistle approach to your requirements? At least have the fortitude to say what you mean - that you only want white people working for the state. It has been proven these "achievement" tests are worded for and geared mainly to restrict members of minority populations from education and the general workforce. Why don't you instead work to get all school districts and schools on a level playing field by providing funds and materials equally throughout the state?

Re: “Open Letter to Governor Doug Ducey Regarding Civics Testing

The new definition of dark money is anything spent in opposition to YOUR favorite party. It has little to do with reality or outcome of elections.

Re: “Open Letter to Governor Doug Ducey Regarding Civics Testing

NJVO:
This is at least PART of the point. I'm not sure I know what 'Dark Money' is. But I'm pretty sure it's NOT GOOD for the rest of us! Lobbyists are NOT SUPPOSED to CREATE LAW. And the 'monied elite' are not supposed to be able to get 'their stooge' elected.

If we have enough people in the Hallowed Halls who KNOW the limitations placed on government, they just MIGHT go along with them. And if THE PEOPLE OUT HERE ALSO KNOW, there is a possibility we could recover our Country from the illegals, the Islamists, and the corrupt politicians. We MUST teach the Constitution. And NOT the one with the little 'footnotes' about things like 'direct taxation is oermitted now throughthe 16th amendment', and the 17th having fixed some non-existent 'flaw', and how LOTS of stuff under the 14th changes everything.

I want my Coutnry back, and this is a place to start!

Re: “Open Letter to Governor Doug Ducey Regarding Civics Testing

Would a modern civics test include questions about:
1. dark money
2. how a lobbyist creates a law
3. how a few corporations or monied elite can get their stooge elected?

We really need to be thinking "recall"

Re: “Open Letter to Governor Doug Ducey Regarding Civics Testing

I took one of the online "sample" tests just to see where I scored. I was ashamed that I only got 96% correct. I attribute that to it being 45 years since I took the last of the REQUIRED civics classes. Point being, back in the pre-1970 dark ages, everyone took classes is civics, government, etc, to learn how the American way of government works. Over the last 4 decades, schools have drifted away from those basic courses, and you can see some of the results right here in Tucson. Governor Ducey has the right idea, teach the students how we got to where we are, and how to succeed in the future.

Our current president TAUGHT the USC but seems not to understand it himself. These are not bad ideas. We have become an ignorant populace led by opportunistic ignorance.

How did Rome fall?

Re: “Open Letter to Governor Doug Ducey Regarding Civics Testing

So Mike, did you put this "intelligent" work together while enjoying a mesquite bean infused craft beer downtown or on the "Avenue" in some place where "intelligent" people hang out? Or, did you put it together on the clock at TUSD or The UA where you are working on a "Special Project"? You "Longtime Educator" You!
