I would also like to thank you for your information and your response. It's nice to know that trolls aren't the only type of people that access this site. 😊
I did a bit more research and found that there was apparently a Brookings Institution study that What, Again may have been referring to. It was cited on CBS news, I think. What you say about rankings for cities over 500,000 makes sense. So, the third worst city on the Brookings Institution list is Philadelphia, and Philadelphia has a completely different set of circumstances, different demographics, a different history, different culture--I actually lived nearby for a while years ago. Could it be that there is a common thread here that may not be a Tucson-specific issue? I would imagine that debt, financial mismanagement and good old-fashioned corruption and graft may be big woes for any large-ish city. Also, there does seem to be a pattern of Sun Belt cities running out of money in recent years due to the fact that many snowbirds dumped their winter homes and seriously cut back on spending following the recession. This holds true for cities in Florida, Nevada, New Mexico, and SoCal as well. So no, I don't think the "anti-growth" card is entirely accurate. Thanks for the added info and fact-checking.
When Wrong, Again mentions that Tucson is the 6th poorest city, he, much like the rest of his trolling ilk, is only mentioning part of the facts.
The whole truth is that Tucson is currently rated as the 6th for U.S cities with populations over 500,000. He always fails to include that part.
Although I do understand why he does this. What he has to say doesn't hold as much weight when you reveal the whole truth. This is also typical of his trolling ilk.
10 Poorest Cities in America of 2015
Take your pick. More socialism/communism/liberalism isn't going to fix it.
Census: Tucson sixth-poorest large city
According to 24/7 Wall St., these are the 25 poorest towns in America. There isn't a single mention of Arizona anywhere on the list. http://247wallst.com/special-report/2016/05/09/americas-richest-and-poorest-towns/7/
Although, it is poor country but these event are very encouraging for the its people to become unit on to put their country on the way of progress. I also heard this news on ary news live channel last night.
There must be some growth. You mentioned that Tucson was the 5th poorest city in every other comment you've posted up until recently. Whether you like it or not, that's growth. You should just move away if you don't feel the growth is happening quickly enough. I understand that the North Pole is hiring; Santa is looking for elves with negative attitude. That would be the perfect job for you. You can package the coal that is distributed to those crabby little children that remind you of yourself. Merry Christmas Scrooge!
Tucson hasn't been known for its economic growth for decades, since the liberal anti-growthers, radical environmentalists and pro-illegal contingent took control decades ago. In fact, our economic growth is of the poorest in the nation, complementing our 6th poorest city in the country recognition.
One additional correction, please: these monks are from Wat Buddhametta: Tucson Buddhist Meditation Center, not from Dhammaratanaram temple.
Two corrections: The name of the dance troupe is spelled "Lajkonik". Also, the name of the food is "pierogi" (the word is already plural in Polish). A "pirogue" is a wooden canoe.
Nice a media that censors. Great job deleting what ever you want and then cry about freedom of speech. What a bunch of hypocrites Tucson weekly is.

In Abby's section about the County and a health plan, "adult" should be adopt.
Great article but a few mistakes need to be corrected: EON not ION youth program. Also, proofreading must be a lost art...at least get the names correct.
History has shown that once a towing company gets a government contract they get nasty.
Not all towing is the result of police action. I suspect a large majority don't involve the police at all.
Also it is not up to towing company to charge people a penalty for towing their vehicle even if the owner of the vehicle is not blameless.
The real crime is that the motor vehicle department will fine you $500 If you don't sign over the the title to the tow company, even if you didn't know it was towed, like being in the hospital.
A person may not be able to pay the $300 or so to retrieve their vehicle. Doesn't mater how thousands of dollars profit the tow company makes selling it.
This is a bad law and should be repealed, it severely and unfairly penalizes people on a limited income.
Is this the same guy? http://www.newsreview.com/reno/weird-scenes-inside-the-drug/content?oid=19648
This opium article was wonderful prose to read, a sad warning though ):
Hell of a lot of typos in here. Also, this is a science brief, not a story. When was your audience 200-level astronomy students?
