Re: “Fresh Air

"as well as bridging the gap between the county's superintendent position and the community."

I'm not even sure why the position exists. But you can see one more layer of education expenses that "promise" to benefit the classroom.

The problem is those promises have never produced any results. The only way to fix public education is to shrink it. get classroom size down, teachers pay up and starve the bureaucracy.

Maybe then parents would come back and pay attention.

Re: “For My Father

Don't support illegals and criminals, support their victims:

"The Honduran Mejia, 19, killed 21-year-old Sarah Root while allegedly street racing on January 31, rear-ending her so hard she succumbed to her fatal injuries that same night. Police found Mejia’s blood-alcohol level was four times the legal limit, and the alien had “a suspended driver’s license.”"

Donate to Sarah Root, no matter how many times these yellow journalists delete my posts.

Re: “For My Father

Here's a guy who came here the right way(notice I said right) and a bunch of know-nothing liberals dislike what he had to say. You go. PesoBill. There are more of us on your side than you know.

Re: “For My Father

Too bad your father did not have respect for a country's laws and instill it in you. Just another 'bleeding heart' BS story .. My family came here the right way ,paid the funds , police reports, waited patiently .. People like you make me ill.

Re: “Pension Politics

Although not mentioned until well into the article, this is the pension system for police and fire fighters. The state and Tucson's retirement systems are in relatively good shape.

Re: “For My Father

Poor bslap apparently has no room in his/her flinty heart for a moving story of a son's devotion and love for his father.

Makes you wonder what kind of dad bslap had. I hope he/she is childless.

Re: “For My Father

Plenty of room for "proper" and "emotional" but no room for the word "illegal".

Re: “Pension Politics

54M to 80M in one year? Pensions are robbing us of services. This is only step 1.

Re: “Bite Fright

It was based on past quotes from Bernie Sanders, John Kerry, Martin O'malley, Bill Nye the science guy, and the Prince of Whales.

We need to stop denying it, and own up.

I don't use a remote. It wastes resources, clogs landfills and increases global warming. I run a fan on my picture tube to keep it cool.

Doing my part.

Re: “Bite Fright

David W?

Might be time for you to think about using your remote control to turn off your TeeVee?

Because you seem to think that anything you see there is The Truth?

Re: “Bite Fright

You asked about the impacts he has seen and the answers are what we are likely to see.

I watched a more accurate answer on tv last night. The climatologist said global warming has given birth to ISIS.

We all know that's the truth, but everybody is afraid to say it. Cimate change causes terrorism.

It is our fault.

Re: “So Long, Sugar Ray

I'm sorry he decided to leave us. Since he's jumping off the 11th floor without a net, can we at least keep his gorgeous dog?

Re: “Border Watchdogs

This group opposes checkpoints, patrols or even Border Patrol's presence? Seems like their objectives fit nicely with those of the cartels (trafficing drugs and people). Coincidence?
