Rick - thanks for letting us know, and apologies to Craig, noise or no noise. He's a dedicated community volunteer and we appreciated his time, and regret the error.
Please be advised that there is an error in the amount of debt on the credit card held by the former president, Karon Bohlenger. The correct amount is $1600, not $16,000. Either I misspoke or perhaps it was very difficult for the very nice reporter to hear me. Unfortunately, the interview was over the phone and I was in a copper mine at the time around some very noisy machinery, but in either case I accept the error as mine, not the reporter's. I'm very sorry for any confusion. - Craig Garver, former interim treasurer, Tucson Pride, Inc.
"... the event was no longer able to remain at Reid Park." Why was that?
And can someone explain 22nd and Kino to me? From my drive through there 4 days a week, it looks like they are creating one of those "bantam freeway" type interchanges that got voted down so many times?
I must have missed the media coverage on the approval of that one.
A little continuity of plans would go a long way. It's bad enough trying to enter downtown NOW, let's just try to jam an even wider Broadway into the choke point at the Toole/Congress/Fourth Avenue/streetcar intersection.
Oh yeah...let's get the cars off Congress, too? Why not just close Broadway completely and install a parking lot with a 3 mile pedestrian walkway to Downtown?
We're a big city now,, looks like a bit of graft and corruption is taking hold,, oh how I miss Boston,, it was all so open there. Let's do a "Big Dig" here too.
A) Pride is in JUNE, STONEWALL remember? Some of the less manly of us are afraid to sweat.. so why not Christmas in April,, it wouldn't be cold then.
B) maybe it's my age, but having drag queens out there so the rednecks think that all gay men want to be women.. thanks I like mine on a stick
C) and about Pride? see B) IBT's and always a drag show at the 4th AVE STREET FAIR. NOW it's the gay bar owners ripping off the yahoos, and showing them that if they are into gay-bashing NOW they know where to go. So yeah let's see some pride. The only thing I think of with drag is makeup by MAX TRACTOR other than that, (with the exception of one ENTERTAINER) the laugh is the straight men now think their wives are ugly
Gee, none of the bitches ever seem to come into heat? Ah common TGP, we aren't stupid. Too bad Pima country isn't willing to shell out a few bucks and do a few blood tests. That would answer whether or not they are on steroids.
It will be interesting to see if the new director is going to control if a dog goes to a rescue group or not because he personally doesn't like whoever's running it.
City council has never cared about this stuff. Back when people from California were buying lots, tearing down the 1200 sf houses on them and building two 4/br 4/ba 4 car garage houses on the lot, neighbors screamed bloody murder, and no one paid them any attention. Now, one lot alone can be responsible for 24-hour noise, cars coming and going, and garbage everywhere. No one was going to stop that monstrosity that is "The District" and now its too late.
The people cannot trust the council. They don't care about Tucson, just their jobs. and they keep getting re elected by their districts who don't care about Tucson as a whole. The City Council has trashed Tucson over the last decade, making bad decisions and wasting tens of millions in tax payers money.
There was a point in time, not so long before The District, that Gans had the opportunity to endorse a much smaller, owner occupied, property value boosting condo project on the same land. As the adjacent neighbor Gans was able to squash the permit to build... Hardliners get what they ask for...
Please get off the cross - we need the lumber ...
Helen: Absolutely not true that shelters do not know how to save the lives of healthy and adoptable animals. There is simply a lack of will to do it (for various reasons) and it does not cost more money to keep the animals alive--so it is not a financial issue.
If you have not checked out this website b4 I highly suggest you do so that you can become an informed advocate for homeless animals if you choose.
Tucson, in my opinion, has a wealth of people talent who have volumes of knowledge on how to still the suffering of our four legged friends without snuffing out their lives. Clearly in the sixty years that animal rescue shelters have existed, in my lifetime, they have not found a solution to bring hope, respect, and moral ethics to all shelter animals. This should not be. I suggest everyone put their thinking caps on and send their two bits of ideas to the City of Tucson until everything that has not worked is eliminated and wholesome, workable solutions are adopted.
Further proof of two things:
Most Humans are gluttonous pigs with little regard for anyone but themselves.
Bigger TVs and leather locker room benches at the UA stadium are a greater priority.
Plus, everything Tim said.
Stay in Michigan.
Steve Kozachik is the only Council member I am aware of that is very aware of this problem and is trying to something about it. Do the math, people! The cities that Pima Animal Care Center services need to make it a higher priority. This will not get better by itself! Why are so many so blind!!
Ha ha; point taken.
Spay neuter is one piece of the pie (a large piece) that affects quality of life for Tucson animals. If the city and county council members would spend some time volunteering in the local shelters, if they would witness what it is like to euthanize a healthy animal and if they would shadow an animal control person for one day to see what kinds of struggles many homeless animals experience, then my guess is the city would have plenty of money to fund low cost/free spay neuter.
The TUSD board would probably do a better job if more of the current board members were not physically present.
