Re: “U.S. Supreme Court Blocks AZ Abortion Law

Remember when medication meant "administration of remedies"? Sadly it now means- drugs that murder babies.

medication [med″ĭ-ka´shun]
1. administration of remedies.

Remedies
Something, such as medicine or therapy, that relieves pain, cures disease, or corrects a disorder.

If he cared about his constituants half as much as he does about ILLEGALS, we'd all be better off.

Re: “The Best Bar in Tucson, According to Bartenders, Is…

It's tricky to identify "bests" in categories as broad as this one, because bars tend to excel in situation-specific ways. The bar at the Arizona Inn is magnificent, but it's not where I want to go for a beer after work. There are some seriously good times to be had at Che's, but it might not be the right place to meet up with Aunt Sandy. Bars are purposeful destinations, and all but the saddest attract tend to specialize in something beyond the basic purpose of drinking.

Some bars specialize in many things. The Hotel Congress hums in such resonance with the spirit of Tucson, it's easy to overlook what a great job they've painstakingly come to do over the past 30 years of offering something for everyone. By this rationale, I can't think of a better bar. But there are even a few things Congress doesn't do especially well. (Being quiet is one; being cheap is another.)

Same goes, really, for Bartenders. Some have great personalities. Some approach the art of drink-making with the discipline and affection of old-world craftsmen. (Or women.) And some are just wicked fast. A bartender with all these traits and more is a wondrous thing, and I've met a few. But some of the most fun bartenders—like some of the most fun bars—are quirksome and flawed. Art imitating life, as it were. No one goes to The Buffet seeking excellence in anything.

In this modern age of clickbait and listicles, the online proliferation of best-this and best-that is understandable and forgivable. But the real truth is that Tucson doesn't have a best bar, or a best bartender. It has lots of them, depending on what you're in the mood for. I could go for a glass of Bud, a shot of Jameson's and a jukebox right now. Maybe a little Social D. That still gives me plenty to chose from.

Republicans don't really want to stop abortions. It's the only reason they get votes from their one-issue voters.

Does he have a history of this same fear in the juvenile justice system for American youth?

Re: “That $4.4 Million TUSD Raise . . . What Does That Amount To Per Tucson Adult?

Mr Safier,

Why do you continue to ignore the administrative bloat in TUSD? If TUSD brought its per pupil admin costs in line with peer districts, this would save $225 per pupil or about $10.8 million, enough to give its 2700 teachers a $4000 raise.

What say you?

Re: “A Breakdown And Explanation Of The TUSD Pay Raises

Worker shortage is the only way to solve this dilemna. Quit and walk out. That way they will be forced to reorganize and reprioritize their wasteful ways.

Two years tops and problem will be fixed. Or will it?

Re: “Charter School Funding, District School Funding

Great article about salaries.

Charter schools are public schools that operate with a great deal of autonomy, free from many of the regulations of traditional public schools. One difference is that teachers in charter schools generally have less job security - by design. They have no tenure, work under year-to-year contracts and risk dismissal if they fail to contribute to student achievement as judged by the school. In return, however, they usually have more teaching flexibility, less paperwork and participate more fully in decision making. If Arizona's charter school experience is typical, they also often earn more than their public school counterparts.

How can tax dollars be dark money? Or is this just your "hands up don't shoot" attempt to appeal to a certain group?

Re: “Sneak Peek: "Zona Politics" Talks with Mayor Rothschild About Bus Fares, Future of Broadway & More

Jeez-us. Y'all gotta find somebody better than Carol West to participate in this "debate" feature. She made a brief, general opening statement on immigration, then let Ash "correct" her for something she didn't even say, then let him drone on for 5 minutes, then served him up a softball question and let him drone on some more. Even when she was speaking she wasn't saying much of anything coherent or compelling. There are plenty of stronger voices to carry the Democratic flag.

Re: “That $4.4 Million TUSD Raise . . . What Does That Amount To Per Tucson Adult?

I agree with Bette transparency is a must TUSD waists more on a daily basis. Teachers do deserve a raise however other districts are out preforming TUSD IN HUGE WAYS . I know many teachers most of the truly excellent ones have left TUSD others shouldn't be teaching but fit into TUSD so well. TUSD administration has ballooned out of control their actions and spending border criminal. Why has no one asked about the audit requested . The weekly should look into that they would find that the auditor general will not be doing that audit for a year and a half by then Sanchez will be gone and the district in ruins teacher raises won't matter then. What will happen to support staff when they take that money from M & O , no one seems to care about them. I would challenge David or The Weekly to look into these issues but as I have challenged them in the past they will simple ignore it in blind support of a district that has failed.

Re: “Is Congress Now Incapabable of Handling Immigration Reform?

Broken is not the best word to describe the system. Blatantly racist and weighted in favor of white European immigrants is more accurate.

If say "it hasn't worked on the past" is all that is necessary, it would appear that nothing has ever worked. Is that what you believe, because this ain't working now.
