Riorican: My mistake and now corrected.
@W Corvi: I'm not sure where you came up with "THOUSANDS" of awards the Arizona Press Club dishes out.
I just worked my way down through its 2013 awards booklet (link below) and it's true there are many awards, but hardly thousands. (I also found no award for that Flagstaff paper you mentioned.
The booklet is good reading.
I found myself copying out leads to award-winning pieces to read later on.
Here's the link: http://azpressclub.files.wordpress.com/201…
Did you mean to type Nogales International rather than Nogales Independent?
Been seeing big improvements there over the last few years. Worth a look now and then, online at nogalesinternational.com
The Arizona Press Club gives out THOUSANDS of awards each year - to the dozen papers in AZ. So it's no surprise that each comes home with hundreds of awards. For example, the Flag Rag pulled down the coveted 'best newspaper in southwest Flagstaff'. Their subscription rate is pathetic, and when they started charging to read it on the web, NO ONE subscribed! They even quit publishing on Mondays, since there was nothing in that edition anyway. But, it still brings home hundreds of awards from the Arizona Press Club.
".....I generally enjoy Beyoncé's music. I agree with Kanye that "Single Ladies" was a superior video to whatever it was that Taylor Swift did or ever has done....."
You're sick Gibson. Suppose Michael Vick's your favorite sports personality also?
Nice use of semicolon blown by misplaced apostrophe--I gather you're not in editorial, @Monkey? Oh, wait ....
@Monkey: Love that your IP address originates from TNI, however. At least when I criticize your organization, I sign my name.
@Monkey: Wasn't planning on it. But I will take your anonymous, poorly formatted suggestion under advisement.
The CEO of Wick resigned today; when are you tendering your's?
Beyonce fans get what they deserve: Cookie cutter music and controlled publicity. 'Nuff said.
Seeing the title of this post, I imagined it was about Beyonce's getting another $50 million from Pepsi for pushing diabetes water on fat kids (which got her uninvited by the White House.) Maybe her fat thighs relate to her drinking too much soda.
She doesn't want pictures of her FAT thighs going public. She is getting fat and would rather control the public photos than to lose the weight.
Why didn't T.W. cover the concert by La Santa Cecilia at the Rialto on April 9th? Can you keep astride of upcoming groups in the Latino community? Thanks. How can I let you know next time they are in town?
Good ole AL, the republican party' answer to Joe Biden.
I like your comment Kate, but what has the mayor actually done? really?
"Agree with them or not, I always enjoy your rants, Dan.
Don't change, and just remember, there are those, under the guise of internet anonymity, who will bitch and denigrate anything and everyone."
Says lc69hunter who called Gabby's heartfelt plea for gun control 'capitalizing on a tragedy.'
Oh look we have pots calling kettles black!!
If you want to stop being confused by the opinions or actions of the people surrounding you Mr. Gibson, then you're gonna have to relocate to a different part of the universe. Hell, even that probably will not work. It's more than likely a universal epidemic.
I think Lucy Van Pelt said it best when she screamed "Stop the world, I want to get off!"

I think the decision by Chris Bianco to locate a new Pizzeria Bianco restaurant in Tucson is great. Unfortunately, as others have commented, the mega-student housing buildings that are increasingly changing the view and the composition of the downtown area are troubling. Does Tucson really want the downtown to become a monoculture of college students and little else?
It must be admitted that currently there IS too much parking downtown, but I believe the idea is that we are planning for a somewhat more glittering future, perhaps if the construction crews ever finish the streetcar tracks. When they ripped into Congress again, it became so surreal that now I expect them to always be there, surrounded by mostly-empty giant garages.
I had to laugh about the Keep Tucson Shitty contingent. I am partly guilty. I don't miss the Greyound station as our Welcome Mat, but I do miss the gentle entry to downtown, the view of Joe's murals on the Rialto. Suddenly, when approaching from the east, it's a multi-story assault, giving no view but a wall of what to us can only be called skyscrapers.
Of course I understand that we have to make parking while the sun shines, and while we have useful people in office who can actually get things done. (I love you, Mr. Rothschild.)
But yeah, I mourn a bit for the lost gentle view of the Hotel Congress, the murals, the mountains. Soon, though... maybe we'll be swank. And those garages will be full of cars. I'm personally stoked about Bianco coming in. Maybe this one we'll be able to get into without a two hour wait. I've given up at the one in Phoenix as often as I've gotten in.
