Martha McSally should read this:
She is out of line. On this and most everything else.
The "cuts" to military retirees' pensions are for those under 62, presumably still working, many at big defense contractors. So they ain't hurtin' too much! Oh, and the MILITARY recommended this budgetary action.
Wish they'd bring back a few more copy editors. Way too many mistakes in the print product every day, 'specially in the Sports section.
Great pizza but:
The saga of the sausage, pepper and onion sandwich. My girlfriend and I were at Heist for lunch yesterday, we ordered a sausage, pepper and onion sandwich to share with an extra house salad.
The server brought the sandwich out on one plate uncut and stated the chef could not cut the sandwich because it would ruin the aesthetics of the sandwich.
We stated we want to share it and needed for it to be cut and asked for a knife. The server then brought a packet of plastic utensils.
We then removed both of the link sausages from the roll, handled the plate back to the server and asked him to have the chef cut it.
The server then returned with the roll still uncut and a knife along side it and had us cut it ourself which we did and handed the knife back to the server.
The taste of the sandwich was great but the service was terrible and unbelievable. We reported it to the day manager on our exit, he shrugged, shook his head a few times, apologized, and asked us how the sandwich tasted.
We have been to the Heist several times for the pizza, we have always sat at the bar and had no issues being served.
Will we go back to the Heist for pizza? At this point I am not sure, I hope this gets back to the owner, perhaps he will offer us an incentive to try again and take steps to remedy this so it won't happen again to anyone else.
To those who disliked my comment above: the truth only hurts those who lack it within themselves.
Mrs. Gabrielle Giffords!
How do they expect to maintain their one child policy when nobody in China seems to know where babies come from?
Who are the bad guys? The narcos who furnish a much-wanted product at market prices? Or the government that hunts them down and kills them?
"a former cash chow", eh? :-)
As long as drugs remain illegal and there's a BATF to supply the cartels with weapons, these incidents will remain commonplace.
I live in Arizona's Congressional District #2; and, Rep. Ron Barber seems NOT to be a "Centrist". I would have liked him to vote against this budget. I like what Ed Martin has said and his position. I think he needs to get much more attention in Az CD-2 and currently has my support!
Nice tongue in cheek Henry. Ain't nobody got time to steal that.
Portland insists that it stays weird. New Hampshire insists it lives free or dies. So, why should Tucson not insist to stay shitty??
I think that your point, while well expressed, is lost the moment you refer to those that are the "Shitty" crowd as shitty themselves. Tucson had ALWAS been refered to as a "shithole" by non-residents (Hell, I've heard just as many locals use the same term) due to it's lack of big city nightlife, trendy restaurants, and commercial corporate businesses. And, a majority of us liked Tucson that way. It kept out the droves of tourism crowds that plague Phoenix, the college kids left during Summer and Winter meaning that the residents had half of the year to themselves, and it kept the constant cycle of "trendy businesses" out while allowing local businesses to fill the same niche.
Now, we've abandoned the businesses, things, and people that have made Tucson the endearing, amazing, essentric black hole that could never quite let you go, unique. While LANDMARKS like El Mercado Plaza, El Parador, DeAnza Drive-In, Toxic Ranch, El Taco, and yes, even the Grill give way to "progress", we lose part of ourselves and our uniqueness to something bright and new and insignificant to our history and growth as a city. While we pour our money into shallow attempts to make a quick buck from a college kid and a bored community, we are literally forgetting about the things that made Tucson what it was, is, and deserves to be. Tucson was a "shitty" town that attracted and retrained the attention of those that loved it for what it is. It's culture. It's beauty. It's community. Downtown has become wash of those elements. I feel this is best evidenced when you realize that the mural that adorned the side of the Chicago Music Store for as long as I can remember has become an unappealing white wall. A tribute to the banal concrete dorms that now invade the area.
We have dumped MILLIONS into Rio Nuevo to do nothing more than leave leave thousands of our town's residents jaded while ignoring the issues suffered by our largest school district, animal shelter, and CITY WIDE transportation (not just a college to downtown streetcar). Are we saying that the money and amusement if visitors is more valuable and appealing that that of the Pueblo's residents? It sometimes feels like it...
There really is nowhere else in the World quite like this place and the people it raises. I think it's a shame to lose all the things that have made Tucson what Tucson is for the past 20-50+ years in such a short span for "growth and progress" with no apology for the trouncing and generalization of a city with one of the most unique and complex cultures in the country. You're washing away the dirt and grime that cover the foundation of Tucson for your Connecticut based gastropub to appeal to a band of temporary residents while offering a shrug to the residents it leaves left behind. Some of us are left to pick up the pieces of a Tucson we love while others are lost in the shiny newness of a Tucson that we don't recognize. And, those others just don't care.
That, my friend, is what I call a shitty attitude by a shitty person with a selfish opinion. And, someone that never knew Tucson in the first place.
Brandon Lavenski for Keeping Tucson Shitty
P.S. I will add that I appreciate the renovations to such landmarks as the Rialto and Fox Theatre. Not all changes are horrible things. The point here is to sympathize with those that have lived here their entire lives, uninterrupted for 20-some years, who have lost A LOT of Tucson's seemingly permi net uniqueness permanently recently.
I WOULD LIKE TO SEE HOW THE ROCKY POINT TIMES REPORTS ON THIS. SONIA BERATED ME FOR NOT RENEWING MY SUBSCRIPTION LAST YEAR BECAUSE I DIDNT FEEL SAFE THERE.
@Belle Jordan - You are the typical retard that explains why Tucson has no jobs other than a call center. smh.
Yeah, let's do an Obama bust in Tucson, to symbolize why almost all UofA grads move OUT of Tucson to Phoenix, because there are no jobs in this wasteland. Phoenix has the jobs though.
Really? "Medicinal" is the term. Any chemo/narcotic/et. all. "can" cause issues. That is why MJ is "medicinal". As a person who deals w/chronic illness and pain, I would love nothing more than to tolerate MJ over narcotic painkillers.
MJ is one of the oldest, researched medicinal herbs for healing next to Opium in the last 1000+yrs.
Alas, I can still go anywhere & purchase multiple forms of alcohol.... any proof. Any amount.
Everthing is back to normal I lived 34 years in the states and seen much more scandeless things there then here in rockypoint its just cops doing there job to keep it safe for all of you to come out here and do the things you can't do in the states let's keep it real
WTF is wrong w/humanity (and I use the term loosely), today?
I grew up w/ Kennedy ('s) assinations, MLK Jr., Malcom X, Vietnam, Woodstock, the love/drug/hippie/yippie culture, Gordon Liddy(sic), Watergate, Iran-Contra, Peristryka(sic), Apartheid, HIV/AIDS, school/private/public massacres...... yada yada yada.....I DO NOT GO OUT & DESTROY PEOPLES' LIVES/MASSACRE/SELFISHLY WANT MY 15min......
YO! PSYCHOS! (since you are gutless, incompetent, probably impotent pieces of crap), LET OUR HUNGRY, HARDWORKING CITIZENS LIVE TO RAISE THEIR LOVED ONES AS BEST THEY CAN!!!!! $ doesn't mean crap over love and safety.
Dear "media": DO NOT POST THESE SICK OFFENDERS' FACES/NAMES ON TV.
Let the under paid/worked/outcast incredible police force go after these people.
Thank you TPD/PCSD/US Military et. al....Thank you.
Linda Ronstadt, is a Great Artist and many of her songs are true Classics. I second the "Motion"...Super-Well Deserved and It's about time. So many of her fans are 'Praying' for her heath and that she gets better. Making it to New York for the award would be great and keep the faith. As they say, "Where there is the Will there is A Way".
Also, Tucson is a Great City ! Those that have not visited Old Tucson and Tucson's Casinos don't know what they are missing. Great Pro Boxing events at Double-Diamond Casino; make plans to attend. The weather is nice and warm.
I thought Paul McCartney had his Place north of Tucson...not actually in the City Limits.
Oh well... He is another Great Artist and Tucsonian. Of couse , there are other famous folks...My buddy at DSW Trucking...World Champion Rodeo Personality....and think of all the movie that have been made in Tucson. Great Old Town .
DUH!? Everything in moderation...
