Re: “Tasty Serial

I had the honor of producing the audio book version of this novel. It was my first experience with the work of Joe Brown. I, along with the narrator, Jan Smith, were immersed in a story that was rich in imagery and emotion. Many times we found ourselves taken away to another place with Cap and Billy. JPS Brown is without a doubt one of this country's great American authors. John Forbes, Atlanta

Re: “Meanwhile, in Other News . . .

David S. thank you for some positive information about what is going on around us . I would like to post some information because I saw the cost of educating vs. the cost of incarcerating from 40 states recently. It is shown that Arizona is on the very low end of what it spends on education and TUSD is even at the low end in Arizona. Just one more fact for all who are concerned about finances: Southern Arizona is 200 teachers short because the pay is so low. Administrators need to be paid and they are not high at all compared to other states Taxpayers should be begging to pay more in taxes for education. If we had a governor like the one in Minnesota, Arizona would truly prosper. http://money.cnn.com/infographic/economy/e…

Re: “Critics Call McCain's Oak Flat Tactics a New Low

This is what happens when people get caught up with materialism and that means greed and gluten on manipulations and hypocritical preaching to coax fake religious republicans to bleed this land. They don't care of the out come,they don't care for their children,they don't care for their children's children. The government pollutes our skies with chemtrails that have hard metals that cause serious respiratory problems, Ailments of all sorts come from these dusters in the skies. I saw this coming when i was young.I'm still somewhat young.but i recall seeing billowing clouds and bright blue skies.you don't see that anymore. If we cannot get together and hardcore protest we will fail if you feel your heart beat hard over this major disaster.we need to get stoic!! Let's get something going.radically like all these other riots.but ours will be real for real reasons, reasons that this is our land!!!

Re: “Meanwhile, in Other News . . .

Sorry but it is very easy to see what the radicals at TUSD are up to. Nobody said don't educate people. I have said quit wasting money.

With the budget cuts, how many TUSD administrators have lost their jobs? Please tell us.

How many TUSD teachers have been laid off or had their pay cut? How many?

Read the link...Though the idea was born from a school rally in which TUSD Superintendent H.T. Sanchez and elected officials lambasted a state budget that “robs our schools,”

Robs our schools? State budget cuts did not allow buildings to fall into disrepair. TUSD let them fall apart. Students have left for other districts, and revenues HAD to be reduced. TUSD still doesn't see what's coming. They graduate kids that can't make change at a cash register, can't read, and they believe they need to understand voting? What would they vote for? Handouts.

We know the game.

Apparently a child to you that has yet to be born is nothing more than a cancerous tumor. How very, very sad for you.

Re: “Meanwhile, in Other News . . .

I am so impressed that they are teaching and encouraging students to exercise their vote. They have already seen and it appears to have learned from people who do not vote(you Dems who did not vote). I have often been impressed by the fact that Republicans vote more than Dems in midterms. I am so surprised anyone could find such a healthy education to be not good. Is anyone saying that they should NOT be teaching people who are old enough to vote to NOT vote or to not make it accessible ? I didn't think so. Any good American would encourage all who can vote to vote. Learning to recognize our responsibilities as good citizens to vote is important. These appear to be the same people who want education funds to be cut. Apparently some here just don't believe in educating people. Very very sad. And they have the audacity to call it 'indoctrination'.

No middle school graduation? TUSD used to hold it at the feeder HS. Where does your child attend school?

Re: “Danehy

I agree. It seems like Mr. Bedoya is right up there with the patron saint of local grafitti scofflaws, Ward 1 Councilwoman Regina Romero.

Re: “Editor's Note

Congrats to you and your child, Mari!
My son's school has chosen to do NOTHING to celebrate this promotion to High School. Myself, and a couple other parents I know, are really disappointed. How tough would it have been, really, to decorate the cafeteria a bit, or rent the high school auditorium down the road for a couple hours, and pass out some printed certificates? I KNOW that us parents would have been all over it. Sadly, we were all told, "No". --- I am certainly happy for you and your ability to celebrate this important passage. (BTW -- My UHS, chronically ill child, has also been through hell this past couple of years!! Definitely a nightmare. ) I am so happy for you that your son found a special teacher with whom he could connect. That makes a huge difference!!
Cheers!!

Re: “Curtains for Certain?

So sad to hear this. Doubly sad for my teen. She has a certificate to take a class here. She was hoping to find time this summer, after graduation and all. I guess I will now have to tell her the bad news. I also know there's not getting my $$ back either. ANYWAY.....sad news for this city.
