Re: “Hot in Hermosillo

Hermosillo is mostly safe, but like anywhere in the world you should be cognizant that you, as a tourist, might stand out and become a target for thieves or petty criminals.

Always drive during the day, don't do stupid shit and treat people with respect. That is generally a recipe for a safe trip to Mexico :-)

Sonora is relatively safe but one should always be in the habit of erring on the side of caution when in Mexico. Just don't drive at night!

Re: “Hot in Hermosillo

Lol Debbie T, you have no idea what you're talking about. You're just regurgitating banter and propaganda that's based nowhere in the realm of reality. And yes, shytourist, the fear of Hermosillo is as a result of ethno-ignorant hysteria.

Re: “Hot in Hermosillo

If you read, you'd probably know that most migrants come from Southern Mexico as well as Central America these days. Also, yes Hermosillo is very safe.

Re: “Hot in Hermosillo

If Hermosillo were safe their citizens would stay there instead of climbing over our new wall.

Keep America safe. Trump 2016!

Re: “Hot in Hermosillo

This article makes Hermosillo seem like a nice place to visit, but it would be helpful if the authors had actually addressed the question posed: Is Hermosillo safe? Instead, they dismiss it as ethno-ignorant hysteria.

Re: “The People’s Weed

if they want to regulate cannabis like alcohol then why do they want to place possession limits and grow limits...there isn't a limit to how much alcohol you can buy/possess? You don't get pulled over and cited for having too much beer? And there is no limit that I'm aware of to how much beer you can make yourself? Just sayin?

Re: “Stop the Presses!

I bet the Arizona Daily Herald endorses Ally Miller for County Supervisor. ....and of course those remaining on her staff come August. Want to take bets on how long Timothy DesJarlais lasts? Wait, think! He's like the "Shadow" the secrets he knows.…

Re: “Rape at the UA

My daughter was 16, and as close to raped as one can be without penetration, in an elevator at the U of A Student Union where she had an after school job. Sudanese refuge, who had diplomatic status. Her whole life turned upside down, and neither U of A or TPD able to help. Suicide attempts, harassment by the attempted rapest for over a year. He hid in the Sudanese refuge and diplomatic communities. Instead of being a doctor, she is now LPN. Instead of U of Michigan on a full ride she had going at the end of her sophomore year, Pima CommunityCollege. He now has a PhD. She still suffers from this with PTSD. Where is the justice?

Re: “Stop the Presses!

This DesJarlais kid is obviously in way over his head and crazy Ally Miller has no problem using him for her odd schemes and will have no problem making him the scapegoat when they inevitably trace this back to him. The only fair thing to do is give him immunity and let him spill the beans on Ally. Of course this is her doing. Who else cares enough to do something like this?

Re: “Stop the Presses!

It's all a setup!

Ally Miller is the only person on earth that can save Pima County from the evil Liberals.

Stop the lies and smears.

Re: “Stop the Presses!

For people who want a real collaborator, someone who's an expert in working to build coalitions, public policy, and political advocacy, Miller's primary opponent is John Winchester.

Visit and click on "donate now".

Rumor is that the folks at the Winchester campaign have instructed their credit card processor to refuse donations from anyone calling himself "Jim Falcon", or listing their employer as "The Arizona Daily Herald".

Re: “Stop the Presses!

Why does Ally Miller still enjoy financial support from major Republican donors (the usual suspects) when she is clearly unstable? Please stop it.

Re: “Stop the Presses!

Meanwhile, nine noble families fight for control of the mythical land of Westeros. Political and sexual intrigue is pervasive. Robert Baratheon, King of Westeros, asks his old friend Eddard, Lord Stark, to serve as Hand of the King, or highest official. Secretly warned that the previous Hand was assassinated, Eddard accepts in order to investigate further. Meanwhile the Queen's family, the Lannisters, may be hatching a plot to take power. Across the sea, the last members of the previous and deposed ruling family, the Targaryens, are also scheming to regain the throne. The friction between the houses Stark, Lannister, Baratheon and Targaryen and with the remaining great houses Greyjoy, Tully, Arryn, Tyrell and Martell leads to full-scale war. All while a very ancient evil awakens in the farthest north. Amidst the war and political confusion, a neglected military order of misfits, the Night's Watch, is all that stands between the realms of men and icy horrors beyond.

Re: “Stop the Presses!

Time to consider a regional government to replace Ally and cohorts in the fictional world of Tim and the bean stalk.
How many road and street departments do we need in Pima County to waste time and money identifying pot holes?
How many Building, Planning and Zoning folks to we need to figure out who has Jurisdiction and legal authority over West Gardner Avenue or which police or fire department to call in case of an emergency?
Think about it, how much duplication, how much bureaucratic nonsense are we willing to continue to pay taxes and not have money to repair pot holes in Pima County?
How many police departments, chiefs, sergeants, detectives, staff are we willing to finance crisscrossing Pima County?
Pima County Supervisor Ally Miller and her "assistant" Timothy DesJarlais act like they have the Alice in Wonderland "Golden Road" under their collective hat. Ally plays the Queen of Hearts and young Mr. Desljrlais the white rabbit in a new Lois Lane and Clark Kent Superman version of newspaper journalists Pima County/Independent Republic of Dido Place chapter.
Really Folks, how much longer do we pay Ally in Wonderland?
