Re: “Song of the Day: 'Poor Poor Pitiful Me' by Linda Ronstadt

Great song and accompanying article referencing a Tucson legend!

Although I do have to admit, I'm a bit confused about the "itchy-palmed dream..." sentence. I've always known the itchy palm myth to be related to the loss or gain of currency. I don't understand how that applies here. If it's a masturbation reference, which is how it comes (no pun intended) across to me, I have never heard of it and I can't find proof of it ANYWHERE.

Mr. Smith, or anyone else in the know, enlighten me with a response which explains how this phrase works here. I've already attempted to figure it out by asking all the creepy and/or lecherous people I know and love. I've also tried the jiggle and bada! search engines with no luck.

Please help me in my quest to obtain knowledge. DC

Wow, I say some really dumb things when I'm off of the medication.

Liberals want to kill American children, really?

I really need to keep my hands off of the keyboard when I'm not medicated.

Please realize that I have a mental disease. When I state that "liberalism is a mental disease", I am not properly medicated at those times. Once again, I apologize to anyone I have offended.

Re: “Remind Me Again, Why Does Arizona Have a Teacher Shortage?

Come on teach. What they were talking about was his vote to defund it.

Barber touts that he has voted against repealing ObamaCare six times. Barber has also voted against defunding or delaying ObamaCare. This should come as no surprise because in 2009 Barber expressed his support for a public option, which would have given the federal government even greater control over the health care system.

You can't always trust fact check or snopes as they have serious political leanings.

Re: “Remind Me Again, Why Does Arizona Have a Teacher Shortage?

When Return on Investment for money spent on getting the education to be certified is good for the job you can get, then you will see more teachers. When the job itself is doable, with supplies and infrastructure available, you will see more teachers. When the teacher is given the lead on what happens in the classroom then you will see more teachers because those who are teaching won't be saying, "I love my job and the kids, but..."

Re: “Remind Me Again, Why Does Arizona Have a Teacher Shortage?

Three Sonorans-3 years ago

In next year’s election, I will be reminding people that voting for a third-party candidate is NOT a vote for the Republican. It is a vote for a third-party!

You know what REALLY IS a vote for the Republicans? People like Ron Barber and Kyrsten Sinema voting Republican and against our President!

This is getting real confusing folks. Is there a shadow democrat party, now going third party?

Re: “Remind Me Again, Why Does Arizona Have a Teacher Shortage?

Relative to TUSD- the following stories that are posted on the Arizona Daily Independent and Three Sonorans today give just one hint of how desperate Kristel Foster, Cam Juarez and their "Grijalva machine" are right now. Those of us who have watched our Democrats (Cam, Kristel, and Adelita) nearly destroy TUSD now refer to it as the "Demolition Democrats." The two posts also gives the public an idea of the depth of hypocrisy that the so called supporters of public education swim in every day of the lives. David Safier has evolved into a small grinding part of the "machine" and he has no business covering TUSD in any way shape or form.

I am a highly qualified teacher who has recently left TUSD because of their absolute failure to support the magnet school in which I taught. The school still has too many vacancies and a revolving door of substitutes. The magnet program has not received the basic material to support the program. Sanchez, Juarez and Foster blame the court order for everything. Here is the bottom line truth: they have not implemented the court order; they have not implemented the magnet school improvement plans; and it is their failures that the public should vote on this election by electing new and honest school board members. I will go back to teach for TUSD once its Governing Board has changed!

Charter School Directors Elias, Verdugo To Host Fundraiser For Juarez

By: Loretta Hunnicutt September 29, 2016
Pima County Supervisor Richard Elias and his fellow charter school director Magdalena Verdugo are hosting a party for Tucson Unified School District Governing Board member Cam Juarez. The event is the second event Elias has sponsored for the embattled Juarez.
Juarez and his fellow Governing Board member Kristel Foster are under fire and investigation for allegedly illegal campaign contributions they received from a Phoenix-based vendor for the District. The vendor, ESI, provides non-union teachers to the District in its effort to avoid the requirements of the Affordable Care Act.
The fact that Elias is a director for a charter school organization raised eyebrows. The fact that he would partner with a charter school operative to raise money for Juarez has shocked many public school advocates.
The charters are operated by CPLC Community Schools, an affiliate of Chicanos Por La Causa, Inc., according to its website. Elias became a director for the corporation in 2008, according to the Arizona Corporation Commission website. Along with serving as a director with Elias, Verdugo is also the “Southeast AZ Area Manager/Vice President, School Readiness at Chicanos Por La Causa, Inc.,” according to her LinkedIn profile.
A mere 5 percent of students enrolled in its Toltecalli High School (formerly Calli Ollin Academy), who took the AZMerit test, passed the English Language portion and a mere 6 percent passed the Math portion in 2015.
While Elias and Juarez have been vocal critics of charter schools, during Elias’s tenure on the Pima County Board of Supervisors has approved tens of millions of bond monies for their development.
When not being a hypocrite about charter schools, Elias also misleads invitees to Juarez’s fundraiser when he claims: “Cam and Kristel are true public education champions. They’ve voted for teacher raises three years in a row, they’ve approved significant multi-million dollar investments for student textbooks and technology, and they’ve passed balanced budgets that put more dollars into our classrooms.”
In fact, under the leadership of TUSD Board president Adelita Grijalva, Juarez, and Foster, the District allocates less than 50 percent of its funding to the classrooms. While touting a surplus, at Tuesday night’s Governing Board meeting, District CFO Karla Soto admitted that the District had been hoarding Prop 301 monies rather than paying them out to teachers over the past three years. During those years, teachers have fled the District in frustration, leaving the District with one of the highest teacher vacancy rates in Arizona.
TUSD Board member Michael Hicks stated, “If it weren’t for double standards, Cam would have no standards at all. This is the same guy who complains about charters from the dais? Unbelievable.”
Verdugo’s palatial home is nestled in the suburban foothills overlooking the mostly inner-city District. Attendees are advised to watch for mule deer crossing the winding roads.

Double standards for Cam Juarez? The G-Crew scrambles to save their sinking ship

Three Sonorans 
The former superintendent and current Vice President of a charter school district will be hosting a fundraiser for TUSD board member Cam Juarez this Sunday. This seems hypocritical since these charter schools have been in direct competition with TUSD, picking up students that should have been in TUSD schools.
TUSD Board member Michael Hicks stated, “If it weren’t for double standards, Cam would have no standards at all. This is the same guy who complains about charters from the dais? Unbelievable.”
Perhaps the charter school executive is supporting Cam Juarez since she knows that Juarez is bad for TUSD which leads to more students that can fill her charter schools?
After being caught with their hands in the cookie jar, crumbs on their shirts and melted chocolate on their mouths, Kristel Foster and Cam Juarez were forced to return $10,000 to a donor who was the wife of the Vice President of a company that just got a $21 million contract from TUSD just a few weeks before.
TUSD board member Mark Stegeman who is also running for re-election along with Foster and Juarez, received no donation from this donor after he voted no on the contract, which made this look even more like a pay-to-play donation from a Republicans “housewife” from Paradise Valley.
Democrats love that money, so they were livid after being forced to return this donation. It took over a week, and they defended and justified why they should keep that money, but in the end even their own Democratic endorsers threatened to pull their support if that money was not returned asap.
These same Democrats were also silent when Kristel and Cam voted to outsource substitute teachers to ESI at a cost of $21,000,000, blaming Obamacare as the excuse. But then again, Ron Barber also voted to defund Obamacare as a Democrat, which may explain why he hosted a fundraiser for both Foster and Juarez last week.
In response, these two rubber-stamps for HT Sanchez got their boy David Safier from the Tucson Weakly to write a supposed expose of TUSD Kids First, an independent expenditure committee that has endorsed three candidates who are not Kristel and Cam. Some of their criticisms have been that some of the donors live just outside TUSD, despite the fact that many of them own property within TUSD and pay ever-increasing property taxes to the district. There was nothing from the Weakly about the pay-to-play donations.
Kristel Foster is now going directly after Jim Click for his contributions to TUSD elections, including TKF, suggesting that perhaps the entire Catholic Diocese is also evil for gladly accepting $1 million in donations from Mr. Click each year which help pay for the churches in which HT Sanchez confesses his sins and prays.
It seems that only Foster and Juarez can accept huge donations from rich Republican donors that live outside the district or from the Vice Presidents of organizations being used to outsource teachers or that run charter schools.
