A story that's nearly ten years old?
How'd we get suckered into reading THIS??
Man with nothing else to do checks into a dirty, cheap motel. Nothing happens. He doesn't like it and leaves. Did I miss a story somewhere?
Why? ~ 4 nights, really.
Please tell me this NoTel adventure was not the idea of this man, https://twitter.com/saxonburns ~ nor the owner of the Saxon Burns website http://www.saxonburns.com...
...watching this,... this NoTel angst-tryst, against such potentially soft focus sensibilities, was like watching a Bambi anime of tour of our beloved faun's visit to Upton Sinclair's Jungle amusement park.
so what surprised you ? it is the rat,s hole it has always been and I never went inside but I am not an idiot you get what you see
Another alum of the State here. It's true. It's a broken system that almost encourages recidivism. But it isn't about rehabilitation, or even punishment, for that matter. It's about compliance. The sole concern of staff, to the exclusion of all else, is their own safety. So in many matters, they tend to take the path of least resistance. In many cases, matters of discipline are handled by the gangs running things inside, often with tacit approval of staff.
God help you if you end up sick or injured while in prison. It's hard to keep qualified medical staff because the pay is low, and any that show concern or compassion for an inmate are eventually run off over "security concerns".
I'm acquainted with Ms Scheff. Her office used to be around the corner from where I worked and she came in often. An intelligent, decent human being, if I ever met one..
As a former resident of an ADOC VCU for over a year's time, I can say, without question, the conditions of these places are far more deplorable than Mr. Skinner even led on, and worse than anyone who has not seen the inside of one of these places can imagine.
The fact that the ADOC can continue to ignore any rules, laws, status quo whenever it wants to, without consequence, is not anything new, but definitely needs to be addressed.
This may be a difficult statement for some to comprehend, but not all prisoners are bad, and they are ALL people.
Thank you for this story, Mari.
Living next to my own nightmare ( the Kali worshiping Diamond Mountain cult) I have no room to talk but seeing this train coming at you might have made a person get the hell off the tracks...Patagonia is pretty nice too!
"Supervisor Richard Elías agrees that Tucson's economic future will not improve as long as Arizona politicians maintain their dismal record on educational spending..."
The legislature has a dismal record of funding public schools, but Tucson taxpayers have more than picked up the slack. TUSD spent more than $8500 per student last year...thousands of dollars per pupil more than any other local district...and still did a mediocre job of educating students. In fact, TUSD's lousy educational results are not the result of too little money, but spending the money it gets in ways that benefit the adults who lead TUSD and not the students who attend TUSD schools.
The head of the Directorate of Development and Municipal Economic Development, Luis Antonio Alonso Reyna, reported that the company that built the pipeline Sásabe-Puerto Libertad start from tomorrow, Saturday, August 24 the selection of staff to work in the project.
He said those interested in working as operators, welders, mechanics and general assistants must attend this Saturday and throughout the month of September from 8:00 am to 12:00 noon and 2:00 to 6: 00 pm at the facility located at kilometer 3.5 of the road Pumpkins.
This is the field in which they are the courtyards of the transport of Ruben Dario Salcido where staff of the construction company conducted interviews skills and performance tests for personnel selection process.
The agency released the list, which is attached below, with the names of applicants who came in advance of the Economic Development office and were already preselected so are invited to attend such facilities for testing and its immediate hiring.
He explained that people who for some reason could not take the request or not appearing on the list may also occur with hand application to participate in the performance tests and be hired as construction begins in the coming weeks.
It should be noted that although the test period will remain throughout the month of September, the contracts begin from next week so it's important to go as soon as crews begin to work in stages. So the pipeline begins ...This is related to Liberty Cove.If you own property in the Liberty Cove scam do not sell cheap...someone wants it.
I have many years of experience in a DD relationship. I love the A Domestic Discipline Society (ADDS) site and all of the ADDS discussion groups going way back many years. MrBB is the most experienced and knowledgeable person sharing and educating on the subject of DD online or off. It's easy to see the experience when reading his detailed and indepth articles, and by using the tools he has pioneered in the area of beginning and sustaining a DD relationship. MrBB has not only been a pioneer, but has always been a vocal advocate of FREE DD Education, News, Information & Resources.
ADDS also has The DD Community Chat Room connected to the site too, and the people there are wonderful, helpful and supportive. And MrBB makes himself available to everyone there on a persoanl level. He shares his thoughts and ideas about DD through his years of experience without ever asking for anything in return. It's amazing.
It does'nt matter if you are just researching DD or what level of experience you have, ADDS is a great place to vist for anything in the world of DD.
If it's "DD", it's here http://adomesticdisciplinesociety.blogspot.com/
Dan mentioned Jeff channeling folks like Twain and Rogers. I always thought Jeff was the reincarnation of Ambrose Bierce! Bierce disappeared during the Mexican Revolution and I think came back as Jeff. Too many similarities; he didn't use a pencil to write, he poked you with it...repeatedly!
I wonder how many younger readers just don't get what a truly amazing publication the Weekly was when Chris and Jeff and Emil and Tom were littering these hallowed pages with their weekly load of awesome.
I am in no way disparaging the current crop of writers. They are consistently dependable. I love them all. It's just that there was a brief period in time when I would gladly pay an extra 50 cents per extra copy of the Tucson Weekly, just so I could share them with people I loved.
Ahhh, Fuck. I don't even know what I'm saying. I just hate that there will never be another Jeff Smith article. It just sucks.
There are several restrictions made to make voting more difficult. Why are we limiting who can assist the elderly & infirm PEVL? Soldiers died for us to have the RIGHT to VOTE. There are "strict interpretations" made to petitions to make people less likely to gather signatures easily for important issues. Easier to throw out legitimate petitions.
I know for certain that TUSD has had strong and consistent training in sexual harassment matters, and that Pima County has also had the same approach. Brenda Even and David Longoria have no excuses for not dealing with sexual harassment during the years of Flores as both of them have held positions of power in those institutions. They should leave office immediately. The impact of the admissions standards on the districts represented by Cortez and Longoria have been quite substantial. They have failed in their duty to provide quality education to the taxpaying adults who have signed up for it. They should resign. Cortez, as an educator, has no excuse for not knowing the impact. Stewart just doesn't get it at all. He failed in his duty to share correspondence with the board, and failed in his duty to investigate and to supervise the chancellor. He has failed in his intransigent response to the community. He must leave. Yet they all still hang on, despite being faced with confidence levels of less than 10% from the faculty they govern. Dr. Lambert has his hands full as they still pull the strings. They must go. This breaks my heart for my school, but I have never had trouble facing reality. These board members do.
How can they suspend a student for requesting courses be taught in English? Arizona law says the courses MUST be in English. This is not a school in Mexico or Spain. The school MUST publicly apologize to the lady who was suspended and all administrators involved should be fired. Racism has no place in our schools, be it grammar, high or college level schools. If there is an expectation being presented that Spanish in class is acceptable, the person responsible for that expectation should be fired.
The four board members are teaching us all a lesson in what it means to be unaccountable. Unaccountable to the students, staff, public and the laws in place to protecting us and our kids from a hostile, unlawful working and teaching environment where retaliation is the policy and the board members will see to it. The Governor intervened at ASDB, The State of Arizona intervened at the water district CV2013-010140, the unaccountable must step down so PCC can step up.
Moving forward always makes sense. However, sometimes, moving forward requires accountability and restitution for wrongs that were committed.
Under Flores' reign of terror too many good peoples' careers were ended at PCC. And too many were abused and sexually harassed by the former chancellor; and with impunity.
I, like the newest board member, Sylvia lee, was excited and hopeful regarding Lee Lambert becoming chancellor. I remain so.
Dr. Lambert has repeatedly stated that he wants to "restore the luster to PCC." It is difficult for me to see how the "luster" can be "restored" when the stain remains.
Board members Scott Stewart and Brenda Even received tips that Flores was sexually harassing college employees. They chose to hide that information from the public and even from the other board members. They enabled and tolerated Flores. For that, there are no excuses and there should be consequences.
Scott Stewart and Brenda Even would help PCC the most by stepping down.
With the exception of making it tougher for third parties to prosper, they look like reasonable changes to me. They should stay in place.
Yo, 'ocotillo,' Maricopa County has been following policies that are closer to free markets by than that of Pima County and they are one of the fasted growing areas in the country.
As for Tucson's city leaders:
'What's important is that young professionals are able to bicycle to work. That's what's what they are looking for in a community after college,' said no one with a brain, ever. "Detroit of the Desert" have never been more true than it is today in Pima County after decades of one (Democrat) party rule.
"Republican candidate Jonathan Paton lost last year to Democrat Ann Kirkpatrick by about 9,100 votes in Congressional District 1, while Libertarian Kim Allen captured 15,227 votes. While Paton didn't contend that he would have won without Allen in the race, he suggested that third-party candidates are used by Democrats and Republicans as spoilers who pull votes from other candidates."
I guess Jonathan Paton, who was in Iraq like me, never read the news before he left. Remember the 2000 presidential race? Remember a fellow named Ralph Nader? Well, Jonathan, I never heard many Republicans complain about him being in the race! That includes you, sir. What's sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander. I hope you moved on and learned a lesson.
