Hospitality begins at home, too. And Jesus said to be nice to your neighbors.
Are you the TX Jesse guy who just lost the election? It should have made you stop and think. Cause this is my home, and if people from Texas are welcome, then so are people from Mexico, Canada or anywhere else. Making my home here is not justification for denying others the right to make theirs here. If you don't like diversity, you have the freedom to migrate. Allow others some freedom too.
Perhaps these people could find a better way to spend their time than helping criminals break the law. There are honest people in Tucson who need help. Remember, Charity begins at home.
Thank you Tucson Weekly/Ms. Herreras. I wish Tig much success and I forgive her.
great article Mari, thank you very much.
Thank you Tucson Weekly/Ms. Herreras. Precisely and one can only hope.
I don't see what on earth he is talking about here.
"Tucson Padres (Class AAA; Pacific Coast League) owner Jeff Moorad will be looking to sell the franchise he bought from Merritt Paulson, the former Portland Beavers. Tucson is not seen as a permanent home for the team, and it sounds like a deal could be done in a couple months."
Other stories indicate Boise and El Paso investors lining up. This seems more like a ploy to persuade investors to get involved here by attendance numbers (?) but its so misleading to say "if you come we will stay."
I lived in Tucson for many years, and loved it there. The thing I liked the best was the wonderful mixture of cultures that blended so well to make it an exciting and progressive city - a city that was so proud of it's Hispanic and Native American cultures (that were present in the area long before settlers from the East arrived - Oh no! that's one of those ideas we want to ban!). Tucson is indeed a product of many cultures coming together to form a richness in tastes and texture, music and art, not found in other cities. There has been, in the last few years, a movement to "re-revise" history - to take history back to the "good old days" when the white anglo settlers were always the heroes, and indiginous, Afro-American, and ethnic immigrant cultures were either non-existant or to be "overcome" or "conquered". We had, for many years, thanks to brave new historical authors, come away from such an antiquated and false view of history. But now, with the new conservative trend toward fear, control, and censorship, we seem to be returning to a new era of darkness. They want to make everyone think alike, speak alike, eat the same foods - they want to ban books and programs designed to help young people appreciate the history of their city - their history. The books on this list are far less dangerous than the paranoia and fascism that wants to keep them from being read. I miss Tuscon - I sure hope those of you who still live there don't find yourselves thinking the same thing.
I work for TUSD. I have read some of the "banned" texts. I can understand why you could be upset with a book like "Rethinking Columbus" or "A People's History of the United States" - if you are a right-wing fascist. I think some of Arizona's politicians fall into this category. It is clear there are members of the Arizona state legislature that hate public education and hate Tucson. That puts TUSD squarely in their cross-hairs. I support Mexican American Studies but the space between the rock and the hard place is never as black and white as portrayed in these sounds bites.
Thanks for highlighting Arlan's work. He is one of Tucson's jewels!
As soon as we saw the yard at TCS we were hooked. Definitely one of the best outdoor learning areas in the city. It was hard to leave our 3-year-old at preschool, but the co-op environment eases you into it, and the kindness and excellent teaching that only Cherie Lazaroff can provide set him up for a positive experience then and for the rest of his school years.
My son went to TCS and had Cheri Lazaroff as his teacher. He still remembers his years there and and being part of the TCS community was a very special time for my whole family. It is an amazing school and Cherie along with the other teachers we met there are truly gifted teachers and good human beings. I would recommend TCS to any family and would send my kids back there in a heart beat.
TCS is a wonderful school. I have friends who are in their 30s who had Mrs. Lazaroff as a teacher. I also have friends that have their children there now, and one that has left the school this year due to administration problems. From what I heard, their money woes cannot all be blamed on the economy.
If every child could have Cherie' Lazaroff as their 3 year old teacher, the world would be a kinder, better place. We consider ourselves so lucky that all three of our children were so fortunate to start their school experience with this wonderfully gifted teacher. <3
The burka competition must have been - uhhh - well?
