Re: “One Day in Bisbee

Heather, you missed a great opportunity in Bisbee. Hazel's Table Ten is truly amazing!…

Re: “One Day in Bisbee

I'm a vegan for 24 years and I don't order quinoa bowls. Most vegans who go to places like Poco tend to order the fun food. So if you recommend doing as the vegans do, enjoy the nachos or a mock chicken burrito.

Re: “One Day in Bisbee

A couple of pints at Old Bisbee Brewery are a must. This was the winner of Best Microbrewery in Arizona in 2013 and the beer and the people are outstanding! The Quarry is a must-do for breakfast. The Eggs Benedict are delicious and the Blood Mary's are chock-full of house-pickled veggies that just put them over the top. If you take Mike Anderson's advice and head toward Naco, Turquoise Valley Golf Club serves up some tasty food and drinks. Also, have a cold beer and shoot some pool at Gay 90's a couple of blocks around the corner and right on the border.

Re: “One Day in Bisbee

While Old Bisbee and the remnants of Lowell certainly have a lot to offer tourists, there is much more to see and do in "Mayberry on Acid." The writers evidently missed seeing Warren, the section of Bisbee with the nicest homes (think Armory Park, Sam Hughes and Snob Hollow in Tucson) and a true historic gem, Warren Ballpark. The Vista, a linear park in Warren, is lined by tree-shaded homes dating from the early 20th century. For those who enjoy farmers' markets, Bisbee has a really good one, every Saturday morning on the Vista across from Warren Ballpark. Also in Warren, on Arizona Street (the main drag in Warren) is Mornings, the best place (in my opinion and that of many other locals) for breakfast in Bisbee. Warren Ballpark, which can be toured by appointment, is the oldest ballpark and multi-sport facility in America, dating back to 1909 and is still in regular use. For fine dining, try Rosa's Little Italy on Bisbee Rd. And wait - there's more! West of the traffic circle on Highway 92 is Jimmy's Hot Dogs, a nationally known Chicago-style hot dog restaurant that will make you think you're back in the Windy City. Further south down Naco Road, on the border, is the border community of Naco. Camp Naco, a World War I-era adobe fort used by the Buffalo Soldiers to protect the border in the turbulent days of the Mexican Revolution is just down the street from the Turquoise Valley Golf Course and Country Club. So visit Old Bisbee and enjoy, but don't forget there's much more to see and do while in the Warren Mining District.

Re: “The Saga of Three Points

So here I am, a family man (Family of Six), business owner (Construction and Maintenance Contractor) moving to Arizona from Texas DFW area. I looked at some property today in the Three Points area. Found just utter beauty in the land and mountain ranges surrounding the area. Thought to myself, "I can make this work, the land was rough (Meaning not well maintained by the current resident) but the potential was there. Now after researching and finding articles like this definitely makes the common sense part of my mind say "Brother, this is a black hole and not worth risking your family in". I am a recovering addict. I know all to well the toll drugs takes draining the life of a small community. The only way you can save it is to actively engage each resident in participating in facing the problem. You can't just blame the government's lack of Intrest. You have start at the local level and make it attractive for the government officials to believe it's worth devoting their efforts. If they see articles like this, well, they are left their own beliefs that this community is best left to denigrate and implode as it has proven to do. I've seen communities turn around their reputations by rallying together, rolling up their sleeves, and drawing a line taking on the battle head on going door to door if needed. Getting good families to help, and letting the bad folks know their days are limited. The town sounds like it needs to develop a police force of its own and have the schools incorporate functions that involves the community and family members. I honestly felt something special while I was in the area and the land's spirit was enticing. I want to believe that there's good there but I find it hard to risk my family and kids to such a environment. Please if there is anything more on a positive note about Three Points let me know. Thanks!!

Re: “Mysteries in the Mountains

Somethings are just not meant to be found. Don't mess with power of any sort. It's not smart.

Re: “The Saintly Dr. O'Leary

I was born and raised in Morenci and Dr. O'leary delivered both my kids, Leticia Osborn in 1978, and Rick Chanez in 1979. He had horses in the morenci corrals that we could ride, I remember one horse her name was muneca, doll in english. Lots of good memories of Dr. O'leary. God bless him and his family.

Re: “Bull Session

Pima Mujer, there is an interesting crisis brewing in the school suit. The parties are now in "settlement" talks. If they fail to settle and the judge enters a final judgment, who is going to enforce that judgment? The sheriff normally does that, but in this case, we're talking about Joe Arpaio, who is not likely to do so. How does a state court force the state to obey a court order without the assistance of the designated police power? Interesting question (one that goes all the way back to a case called Marbury v. Madison!) We could be facing a breakdown of the rule of law in Arizona over this case.

Re: “Abuse Of Our Elders

We have been here for 5 winters, and have been scammed twice. The first scam was thin sheeting on our roof. We called the company when the leaks started; they came to fix it and charged $1,200. It still leaked. We asked around and a reputable roofer said no one ever even tried to fix it. Now we have a loan application of $12,000 for roof replacement.
The second scam was a floor and tile cleaner. $800 for washing our floors. Dirty grout is still there. )-;

Re: “Bull Session

Discontinue to allow M&O (maintenance and operations) monies to fund extracurricular activities, realign those funds back into the classroom. Until Arizona raises it's national education ranking from 48th to the top 20th we shouldn't be spending classroom money on extras. Yes, Fine Arts and physical education would be more prevalent in daily K-12 schools curriculum across the state if we realigned these monies away from after school programs and back into the classroom. Yes sports have their place in our society but let us use education money to fund a culture learning. Why is America one of the few countries in the world that funds and promotes sports at university level?

Re: “Bull Session

Jim, you forgot one question and answer:

A judge has ruled that AZ has underfunded schools by $1.3 billion and should pay $331 million immediately. How did the legislature deal with making the payments to public schools?

They didn't. But the governor is withholding 24 million in the budget to back loans to charter schools.

Re: “420

There are strains such as "Chronic Thunder" which boast CBD levels at around seven percent while still maintaining a THC level of around twenty. I really think people should realize that you don't have to sacrifice one for the other.

Re: “420

But is Puchi-Saavedra for or against personal cultivation in 2016?

Home brewing didn't put the breweries out of business.

!Demand No legalization w/o personal cultivation and protections for medical patients! This is bloody America. Laws written by big biz to push the citizens around are better suited to Europe.

Re: “Calexico

Great article Linda. I'm inclined to agree with Schumacher - Bullets & Rocks is one of the best things Burns has ever written. I'm so glad that this new album is so good. The last few have felt a bit bland to me but this one's an absolute doozy.
