Re: “Editor's Note

It's common knowlegle that "1,000's" of little kids from elementry school "OCCUPY" the State Capitol during Legislative Seession,but adults just hide behind Computers and Cable T.V. all the time.The AFL-CIO didn't even have their yearly Rally this year at the State Capitol.

Re: “Editor's Note

Thank you Ms. Herrera, for all of the work that you do for our community. The good folks at here in Tucson have taken your advice. They criss-cross the state organizing voters' groups and speaking profoundly at debates, forums and town halls.

The League of Women Voters here in Tucson courageously and effectively went to the Capitol, arranged a terrific press conference and requested that the federal Department of Justice investigate the arguably illegal sweeping of public education funding for their tax cuts to wealthy campaign donors and corporations. We are taking your advice and organizing groups and people to reclaim our State House from the ALEC-led lapdogs. Doug Ducey, Gowan, Biggs and their "sovereign citizen"/Carhi Herrod Arizona Taliban have awakened fierce opponents in voters that have had enough of their poisonous corruption.

Gowan's not running a parallel campaign to keep his state house seat is he? Cause he ain't gonna get the nod for District 1.

If the odds were good that a bus from Tucson to Crazyland could actually make it up the I-10 corridor without encountering a two hour delay somewhere along the way (this is why the commute train is needed legislators....wink wink); I'd take you up on it Maqri.

Re: “Editor's Note

What a beautiful story about spending quality time with your son. I get to know my son on a deeper level, when we go on outings, away from home; no Ipad, no grocery errands, no phone calls, no texting. Just eating good food, enjoying nature or the city and often even having mindless conversations. Great job, parenting, Mari Herreras!

Re: “Editor's Note

Geologically they are very different cave formations, in mountain ranges that formed at different times and from different rocks. Do Colossal Cave and Peppersauce connect? Probably not.....

Re: “Editor's Note

Great story. I would love to hear from people as to how far they went into cave beyond the shelf and lake. I was in there in the early 70s and on the way out at the rabbit hole there was an 6 ft rattlesnake. Talk about stuck!

Old timers told us the cave connected with Colossal Cave and that Cochise would enter on the south and exit on the north near Oracle.

Don't think it was ever proven. How about it spelunkers?

Five dislikes just for seeking a clarification. Well, that was surreal.

Re: “Editor's Note

Interesting comment Julie. And from what I found I think you are right. Obama changed the law in 2012.

I wonder why he was worried? It has now backfired on him.

Re: “Editor's Note

The thing I don't understand is why Secret Service agents should be at a rally for someone who is not yet president. Unless I've missed something, that doesn't quite sound right.

Re: “Editor's Note

Hope for what, your socialist open border utopia? You exercise your 1st Amendment Rights but then deny them to someone that disagrees with you? That is not America. Try joining us.

Protesters that enter a rally and disrupt order when secret service agents are there commit federal crimes. Do your whining outside where you belong.

Re: “Editor's Note

Why didn't we take the opportunity to negotiate a different location? We don't discriminate based on religious beliefs, or did you just do that?

Re: “Editor's Note

The overwhelming opposition to the Grand Canyon University scam that was attempted to be perpetrated against westside residents (and in reality, all taxpayers of Tucson) has nothing to do with their religious nature (although many objected to their anti-gay policies) or any concern over competion with the UA (that's a new one) or, for that matter, Supervisor Ray Carroll. The fight was about the plan to give-away of over 100 acres of publicaly owned, inner city recreational green space to a private development and the insuing violations of the right to public documents on the scam.

This fight, by the way, is far from over and is still being fought in court, although nobody knows this because of the media blackout that has been imposed on the issue by this newspaper and others. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to respond!

Re: “Editor's Note

Grand Canyon U was blocked because Ray Carroll's daddy whom he owes everything to, Raul Grijalva, said no way to white christians entering Grijalva territory. Browns only, whiteys not welcome.

Re: “Editor's Note

Did you block Grand Canyon U because of its religious connections, or because of it's competition to UA revenues? Lofty platitudes there.

Re: “Editor's Note

Well said Mari. Unfortunately, based on the comments, there are some who will never rise above the platitudes you caution against. The only jobs that Supervisor Carroll may have been a part of preventing are the ones that would have come at the expense of our air, water, and recreation areas with the destruction of the sacred Santa Rita mountains. And I hope, on the other side, that some of the partisan Democrats who tried to beat Ray up over the years will someday truly understand his value. As someone who worked for Ray for many years I am certainly biased, but I can assure you no one worked harder at the job than he did. Happy Trails man.
