Re: “Five Ways To Avoid Being An Able-Bodied Douchebag

Nice rant, Adiba! What a beautiful child you have.

No rant on the unclean, abusers of disabled folks' parking spaces is complete without a mention of the UCLA football team of ~ 1999…

On another note, I would imagine that most handicapped people would give most anything, including their special placard, to be able to park 200 yards away from their destination and walk without pain.

Re: “Hell Yes! The 2016 Tucson Weekly Endorsements

The endorsement of Bill Staples by 'The Weekly' is a sham. The grossly oversimplified explanation of what the assessor does is insulting and inaccurate. Had it done actual research, it would be endorsing Droubie.

Huckleberry is the only one we didn't vote for and he has all the power When some one questions him he doesn't like it or so it appears

Re: “Tucson Salvage

I may have very well taken the last photo of the El Taco sign on Country Club the day before the new owners finally took it down. This article was a fine read, really capturing the flavor of the old neighborhood as well as the spice formula! Thanks so much for that

Re: “Tucson Salvage

I grew up on the east side in the '60's and '70's. The deterioration of that area is phenomenal and sad. Tucson has really become a poor town.

Loved it.
I absolutely loved it.
Have no misgivings about the title. It is what it is Adiba.
For those who question Adiba's writings, or possible reactions to said infractions,
Know that unless you have been a caretaker or parent to a child differently-abled, or uniquely-abled,
You simply cannot understand in full the frustration that comes with being at the end of people's indifference, thoughtlessness, and calloused cowardice.
Her indignation is Just. It is righteous.
Don't be that guy!

Re: “Chuck Huckelberry Is Getting Tired of Ally Miller's Fishing Expedition

The roads are crumbling and poverty is rampant. Chuck Huckleberry and Raul Grijalva are 100% responsible. How many decades will it take for them, and the liberals that support them, to accept responsibility?

Re: “Chuck Huckelberry Is Getting Tired of Ally Miller's Fishing Expedition

The voters need to adopt the goal of removing Huckleberry. One only need look at the lack of financial oversight of the current Sheriff's office to ask, "what is going on here?" Let's see if the FBI indicts others.

Re: “Hell Yes! The 2016 Tucson Weekly Endorsements

I would like to ask Mark Napier;

With the possibility of prop 205 do you see Joe Arpaio or one of the other sheriff being appointed to head the board of Department of License and controls by Gov. Ducey ?

What is his opinion of prop 205?

Superficial without merit on any of the topics. Records should be electronically retained and a simple search. If not we are paying and not what we are getting what we pay for as far as records keeping.

Re: “Noise Annoys

I think the "music" that "influenced" Mr Gelb et al was more the yowling of feral cats in the alleys of Tucson and discombobulated street poetry of the bohemian wino than the awesome soundtracks of any western movies no matter what era

Re: “Noise Annoys

Hey, Joshua...a "50s Western" would be cowboy music, like Rex Allen and Roy Rogers. The music that may have "influenced" Gabe Sullivan and Howe Gelb and others is more likely the Ennio Moricone soundtracks of Sergio Leone's "spagheti westerns" of the late 60s-early 70s. The ones that did so well with Clint Eastwood.

Re: “Hell Yes! The 2016 Tucson Weekly Endorsements

So what about all the rest of the people that are up for election? You can't just leave us hanging like that! Like county officials, county attorney, county recorder county assessor, county superintendent of schools and justices of The Supreme Court and judges of The superior court. Where is some information about them? I don't wanna just vote for somebody based on their political affiliation, it's nice to know some of the things they've done. If there's a website or something you could direct me to that be great. On a separate note how come they never let us know about the judges political affiliation? Thanks, Kris

Re: “Hell Yes! The 2016 Tucson Weekly Endorsements

When I was running for Assessor in the primary against Bill Staples, the Tucson Weekly interviewed me and we discussed many of the issues of what was going wrong in that office - the needless and costly litigation, the inadequate systems for valuing commercial property and mostly the horrible treatment of taxpayers who exercise their right to appeal. Since the primary I have even uncovered evidence that Bill Staples fraudulently issued notices of proposed corrections so he could avail himself of another opportunity to discriminate against a commercial taxpayer in court. If he is re-lected I seriously doubt he'll complete another term for all the wrong doing in his office.

Re: “Editor's Note

While Betts has done many good things, she has also:

1. Publically endorsed a campaign with Holocaust-denier [ADL] Norman Finkelstein.

2. Participated in an event using the IPMN "Steadfast Hope" curriculum. Dexter Van Zile from Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America (CAMERA) reported extensively on the "Steadfast Hope Curriculum" as full of lies, and supportive of terror. The JCPA (nationwide umbrella organization for bi-partisan Jewish Community Relations Councils) condemned the IPMN as antisemitic. The JCPA's Ethan Felson conducted a training in Tucson showing the IPMN to regularly invoke racist, antisemitic, tropes.

3. Publically expressed solidarity with John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt, authors who allege that the US government is controlled by pro-Israel lobbyists.

4. Picketed The Jewish Festival at the Tucson Jewish Community Center, demonizing Jews and Israel and frightening preschool children. (I was the staff photographer who took photos of her picketing.)

5. Self-identified as a member of Women In Black, an organization that is viewed by many as crossing the line between being anti-occupation and demonizing Israel and holding Israel disproportionately responsible for the conflict.

Does the County School Superintendent have any authority to try to correct the wrongs at TUSD?
