Re: “Remembering Wendy

I wish to say so many things, but I don't know what to say. Well, I do, yet it is too much - this comment box will not allow for all of it. You are amazing Wendy! We (society) failed you, and I am still trying to determine the big picture lesson with all of this, yet in the 'minutia' - I miss and adore you.

Re: “Final Sweat

Yeah, it was a typo. "Sold" is correct.

A typo? Perhaps "sold"?

Re: “Final Sweat

"This is not a normal Sunday for this group friends, since the property's been old—today is their last sweat on Sunday, Sept. 4."

So how old is the property?

The date of this piece is September 22. Are these guys time travelers?

Re: “Local Transition

There's really nothing on 4th worth visiting twice. No stellar eateries, that's for sure. Look. Tucson, as a whole, is sort of a dump.

Re: “Local Transition

One of the oldest establishments on 4th Ave is Delectables Restaurant. How come there was no mention of it in this article?

Re: “Local Transition

What is the attraction 4th Ave. has long been know for the counterculture late night college bar crowd. Eclectic food and secondhand new age clothing and natural food co-op. Bad parking scary at night, and being so close to all of the undergrad student charades riots. Yea it not on my place to go my wife loves Caruso's only during street fair though. I drove a cab for a short while during the mids 80's you would not believe what went on after hours @ IBT's. Sorry I dont see the attraction

Re: “Local Transition

Re: “Local Transition

It would be interesting to see if these vacant merchant spots are more of a reality or perception situation. Are there any historic records to look at to actually research vacancy rates over time rather than rely on the perceptions of a few business owners? FAMA must have some data to actually go through and report on.

AND you can't just look at vacancy rates, you also have to look at price per sq ft and what people are trying to get for these spaces. It is not a one sided story. If landlords are trying to capitalize off of all the development by increasing their rents, it is only natural that some businesses will not be able to compete and will have to either move or go out of business.

Re: “Local Transition

This seems a little misleading when, as someone who has walked up and down this street calling every single open spot and gettting only one call back, after reaching out repeatedly. There would not be so many open spaces if people would call back interested business owners.

Re: “House Race

In a few more years, Frogge may be ready to serve effectively in the Legislature. She has much energy and spirit, but in debate with Engle, Engle emerges as the more prepared if not more connected candidate. I believe Engle is ready now to move forward alongside Mach.

Re: “House Race

Asked at the LD 10 House Clean Elections forum to describe a non-political professional accomplishment, Frogge explained her inability to do so because all her professional career has been in the political realm. Her most recent professional connection has been with the Center for Neighborhood Leadership, which appears to have no visible presence -- no office, phone number, web connection -- in Southern Arizona. Engel appears much better prepared to serve the people of the district, given her years of real world experience and accomplishments. And returning Stefanie Mach to the legislature is a must.

Re: “Five tips for staying out of trouble in the dorms

Sgsmith, very well said.

I was in a dorm situation when I was in my late teens. Granted it was military and more strict, but there was your fair share of underage drinking etc. (which I think should be on the table for those potentially risking their lives for their government, but that's another story...). Marijuana? Never...but it was a different time and place. Regardless, I had a lot of fun but respected myself and my place and never risked damaging it nor getting in trouble.


If I'd had the opportunity to attend a school like the UofA, I would not have treated it as carelessly as so many college students today do. Be mindful of your situation and good fortune and have some self-respect.

Re: “Best Two out of Three

Probably Matt Kopec will get my only vote in the primary. I don't know much about him, but the other two have taken public positions that I cannot, in good conscience, vote for.

I am an Independent who normally votes in the Republican Primary to try and keep the real crazies from being elected, but am voting Democratic this time around because I would like to see Joel Feinman knock off Barbara LaWall, who has been there far too long and thinks she owns the office.

Friese and Hannley got my vote. We need more women in elected positions, especially among that crowd on West Washington Street.

Sorry no. I oppose the liberalism of the progressive movement. The term progress has been coopted by leftist democrats.

Re: “Best Two out of Three

Debbi L - #VoteProgressive. Check out my ideas on my website Powers For The People dot net. My platform is much different from the privately funded candidates. Also, since I have been a blogger for 10 years, it is easy for people to find my opinions on just about everything.

Thanks, Nick, for a fair and balanced report of our race.

Re: “Five tips for staying out of trouble in the dorms

Seriously….

How about acting like an adult; although, current science says college-age students are not in fact fully-functional adults, as demonstrated by their risk-taking and lack of critical thinking behaviors and failure to understand the consequences of their actions.

Quit pissing away your parent’s money and leave the cliché drug and alcohol abuse to the Hollywood screen writers who don’t give a sh@t about your future.

Instead of sucking up to your RA to hopefully get away with something, don’t screw up in the first place, unless you really like sucking up to people, in which case, you should change your major to business or political science.

Lastly, hiding from the police and pretending to be asleep is the stupidest thing you can do. I watched two idiots try this tactic in the student apartment building across from me some years ago and the police did give up – until the next day, when they went to the student’s classrooms, pulled them out in handcuffs and they were last seen being moved out by their parents in the middle of the night.
