Considering the "fair and equitable" hiring practices TUSD adheres to - certainly no principal is able to select the best candidate, in their opinion, to fill ANY position at their school - it is amazing to me that the board is able to simply select the single candidate that they feel is the best for the top job in our district. Applicants for many positions in TUSD far lower than superintendent have to, in addition to making it through the paper screening, go through several interviews, submit writing prompts, and be scored on their responses by a panel of peers and administrators. A reasonable addition to the current process would be to have the cabinet interview Dr. Sanchez, as well as the other top prospects, as well as gathering input from the rank and file in our district. He, or she, will, after all, be our boss.
At first I couldn't spell "desecrated" and now I am.
Per Tucson PIO Luke Knipe on Facebook:
"Luke Knipe Yeah, this bit of bad luck owes to a truck that knocked down a pole near 6th and 22nd, which downed a few power lines, which knocked out the power to several traffic signals and about 600 TEP customers. . . .
Traffic lights completely out (not even flashing red) at Church & Pennington, Church & Broadway. Lots of firetrucks (at least 4) have Congress just E of Church cordoned off - but traffic on Church can still get through that intersection.
WHERE???? Some specifics would be helpful.
It was absolutely disgusting and disgraceful the way the Democrats and Republicans Orr, Pratt, Coleman, Goodale, Robson, Carter, and Brophy McGee behaved. Sickening! The Democrats and these few Republicans REFUSED to answer any questions regarding the proposed budget.
Well, I'll drink a Marked Man straight up to that!
In the immortal words of Bugs Bunny..."What a Maroon"!

I didn't read Jim's article as indicating that he or the Weekly were "Defending anti-choice politicians". I did see the presentation of a couple of people in the media that seemed to be doing the defending -by finding merit in Trent Frank's utterances. I personally appreciated being able to read their remarks ~know your enemy, I always say.
I do have to say that reading anything about those self-appointed priests of the modern inquisition is an unpleasant experience. Individually, they give me the creeps, and collectively they make my blood boil.
You're right, Jim, this legislation is the worst thing since the 1965 disaster, and, of course, if that hadn't happened, neither could this. If this passes, America will become a third world welfare state in a matter of months.
An ad featuring the blind leading the clueless. Your choice as to which is which.
That was one of the saddest displays of legislators behaving poorly ever witnessed by any constituency in the history of this country. The leaders of both houses should resign in shame.
If anyone knows all about slime, it's Frank Antenori!
Thank you, Jan the Head, for doing the right thing. I haven't always agreed with you or with Obamacare in principle, but I believe this legislation will help alleviate our state's healthcare woes.
I was told 20 years ago that AZ wouldn't ban c*ckfighting until Kemper Marley was in hell. Marley was the man that the bomber said hired him to do the job. His name was also attached to the largest c*ckfighting event in Arizona.
