The article was about the UNESCO designation. The UNESCO designation has to with with the big picture of 4,000 years of food cultivation, the present relationships among producers and dining, food security and the work of the Community Food Bank. That's why Severson, who is far from being a mediocre writer came here. It was a good piece and because of it Food and Wine had an article on their website. This all brings attention to Tucson's culinary scene,
it's first ...
Four weeks ago Steele published an op ed in the Star on the economic opportunities that exist in the Arizona-Sonora border area, showing an understanding of the issues involved that so far surpasses the simplistic phraseology of the incumbent as to be embarrassing to Colonel McSally. But recent reports of a shortage of fighter pilots in our military may point to the next step on McSally's career ladder.
My business partners were requiring a form a few weeks ago and were told about a great service with lots of fillable forms . If people want it too , here's http://goo.gl/XXBQJY
In reading the transcript of Zona Politics and previous comments, I'm surprised at the little attention given to Matt Heinz, who would make a fine predictable Congressman but I doubt if he would beat McSally. Victoria Steele will not be so predictable, is and will be more independent and has shown herself to be courageous beyond the ordinary. From the beginning of her campaign, Victoria has insisted it isn't about money, it's about commitment and passion, about a true concern for the common good, all of which she has displayed throughout her public and private life. Victoria Steele can win back the seat in which the Udall brothers, Jim Kolbe, Gabby Giffords and briefly Ron Barber served the people of southeastern Arizona so well over the past half century. With Victoria as her fall opponent, Colonel McSally's daily e-mail whining for 'more money, please' will perhaps nudge the local economy upward but will not buy her another term in the House.
Thank you, Mr. Nintzel, for this show. We need to know as much as possible about the candidates in this important election.
Victoria Steele knows and cares deeply about the needs and values of working families,seniors and the poor in our CD2.
Martha McSally is a professional politician that is indebted to big money donors, out of state corporations and the Trump Machine--- her millions of dollars are raised from people that don't live here.
Victoria Steele has the governing experience and the values that are our values---she fights for the our interests in a way that McSally never has. Victoria has proved her loyalty to us. McSally has proven her loyalty to big money.
You only need to hear Victoria Steele speak for 30 seconds to realize that she is a people-person with the ability to listen as well as communicate effectively. Victoria was instrumental in the passage of several bills while serving in the AZ State Legislature - strong evidence of the collaborative skills we need but sorely lack in the US House. She's the real deal - passion tempered with the ability to collaborate and get the job done!
Victoria Steele stood out strongly and ahead in this discussion, as she does in her campaign and her values on issues. She is the only candidate who comes out coherently and compassionately on the many issues that we face in our nation. She has the courage to stand up and speak out and she will have the courage to do the good work that needs to be done. How much money one can raise is not what a moral and substantive campaign is about, and predicting an outcome on this basis is very troubling & reflective of what is deeply wrong in our Nation. Nevertheless, Victoria Steele is steadily raising campaign money and more importantly, strong endorsements from real movers and shakers!
If you want to talk about which candidate can get things done, then you need to look at Victoria Steele. Her record in the State legislature speaks for itself. McSally is a one note Johnny with Davis Monathan AFB and the A-10 as her only positive note. That's important to the Tucson economy, but there are a lot of other important issues and she backs the Tea Party on every one. She's a protégé of Jon Kyl and it shows. If you want a candidate that understands the public interest, Steele should be your candidate.
Mc Silly has passed a lot of bills? In what Congress? She's voted on a lot of bills . . . like shutting down Planned Parenthood and the Affordable Care Act. Give me a break! McSilly's a total Koch sucker.
Victoria Steele is the type of individual we Need To Elect here in Tucson. John McCain and Martha McSally are the typical Republicans who side with the rich Republican donors, take their money and carry out their agendas, and heck with the individuals who live in the districts that require true and honest leadership. Honest individuals, which McSally and McCain are not, need take care of the pressing issues that plague our city and state. McCain and McSally should Never be allowed to be Bought by the rich ever!!!! Get Them All Out Of Politics, stop taking the bribes and run the race as it should be run. Fair and Square without the Payouts to the pocketbook!!!! Elect Victoria Steele, who will and can do the Job the right way. She stands by guiding principals that we can be proud of and she can be trusted!!!
I referred to Wrong, Again as a "gift" and my comment got removed.
I must have offended the poor dear.
You poor, sensitive dear.
Weeeelllll...I think you're both sort of right, JJ. Yes, the focus was very much on the UNESCO designation, but I thought there was a faintly patronizing air about the article, as if the writer were racking her brains wondering how on earth this utterly provincial little desert hamlet could ever have earned such an honor.
TW missed the point of the NYT article. It was not about Sonoran cuisine or restaurants. See here for more info http://tucson.com/business/local/unesco-de…
Being paid with "taxpayer money" should mean that charter schools will open their books for taxpayer review and approval. But it apparently does not make them flinch at all. The examples mentioned by John Oliver for administrative malfeasance, deceitful "EMO" operations and hollow online charters are not fictitious. And as such, these operations are not just unethical but they are truly repulsive and nauseating abuses of a public trust. All charter school operations should open their books and show how they work and who gets what. Anyone who runs a clean and effective charter should just do it.
Real economic opportunities do not need to be tied to tax payer dollars and dependent politicians. IBM disproved the adage, "if you build it they will stay." We have commercial spaces available and we have open land that could be developed. It does appear the PC took jobs/income away from local business in an effort to "look" successful.
Fix the damn roads and arrest the criminals. That's what they were elected to do.
World View represents the first real opportunity in a long time to create a new industry and worthwhile jobs in Tucson, on a large scale. Those who oppose its stationing in our neighborhood are willing to blow off what could be the anchor for Tucson's first new, major economic development in memory.
That would send a clear signal to other entrepreneurs and large investors to stay away, condemning our region to yet more decades of underdevelopment, lack of opportunity, failure to attract talent, and poverty -- all of which would continue to favor Maricopa County's development and domination, which is the real point of this lawsuit.
It's easy to lambast public officials, easy as it is to shoot yourself in the foot, two self-destructive entertainments popular among our more-benighted residents. "Keep Tucson s****y," indeed.
Mccain obviously needs to be pushed out of office. For some time his days have been numbered, he is lucky to have fooled so many for so long. Mccain has been on both sides of the fence forever, often stabbing his constituents in the back. Time to go was twenty years ago!!
Money. Money. Money. You have got to adjust the message because people catch on to that too fast. Why not call it something else. Like "let's INVEST in our children."
Oh wait, they're not our children are they? AZ teaching professional choose not to send their kids to public schools so they earn enough to pay for it. But let's continue to keep the poor down and leave them stuck in declining schools with less than the best teachers. You're the one that said they are working in other fields.
Put Chuckelberry on the first baloon!
Fix the roads!
