Agreed, ronko--thanks for the comment. Many of the side streets that are "safer" to ride on (because there's less traffic, moving relatively slowly) are not just annoying but dangerous, thanks to cracks and holes and bumps in the pavement that can literally throw a bicyclist to the ground.
I'm just glad the movie times have been restored to their rightful place. What with the internet, regular phone, and giant marquees I could never figure out which "lowest-common-denominator Hollywood flick" I would be able to squeeze in between community service and the methadone clinic. Keep up the good work, Dan, and don't let the bastards get you down!
Good job Dan!
PVK/Scarpia, B: You might need to work on your reading skills. "Honestly, I thought the paper would have changed more in my first year..."; "There's a lot more to come, even still ahead of us in 2013."
But yes, Jimmy was a great editor for the Weekly. I couldn't agree more.
Happy Anniversary from one crazy person to another!
Well done Dan and the Weekly team! Excited to see what's ahead!!
I like using the older PROVEN system from the Territorial days. You know, the system used back before computers, high tech tweeting, and tour buses. Play against your neighbors, those who come out on top THEN get to play the better teams from the rest of the state.
Alternatively, just dump out the Valley area schools, and let the state of Arizona have it's own champions. Maybe schedule a final round of teams from Arizona vs those in the great state of Maricopa.
Add to your list of fantasies improved pavement. While I agree with your list of big picture plans and ideas for the future of bicycling in Tucson on a more immediate and tangible level the streets/bike lanes, and basic surface of both in this town is bone rattling. Bad pavement can separate the dedicated cyclists from those less rabid. Those less rabid will simply drive or walk.
No Dan, you didn't say that, but you have now I guess, and yes, you have a long way to go just to catch up to Jimmy, let alone improve The Weekly.
Let me guess, the reason the AIA is using a system that actually hurts smaller, more rural teams is because there is money involved. Revenue from more popular teams who actually are better than the Podunk high gene pool makes more sense to the AIA than a more socialist everybody gets to play in the game philosophy. I hate to make this about capitalism but, money driving sports tends to monopolize it, making the best teams in the biggest markets perennial winners and smaller "markets" suffer. I wouldn't blame the system, though. I blame the money.
Scarpia, B: Didn't I say that?
'Looking at the covers of this year's issues, I think we've done some great work," but don't hurt yourself patting yourself on the back. You have a long way to go.
Your completely wrong about people being alone when LARGE TRUCKS USE TWO Spaces. And BTW, what you are doing to peoples vehicle's is vandalism (witch is illigal) if you are putting large items under the tires, chemicals on the body of the vehicle, littering the vehicles with your trash. If this ever happens to my vehicle I will be looking up you up "Tom Danehy". Were not breaking the law taking up two spaces.
thank you for sharing this....Industry-funded zealots are fishing to avoid nonprofits from defending experts, kids, employees and the surroundings. With the outrageous discussion that nonprofits are getting wealthy by making the govt follow its own rules, they want to make sure that only the truly wealthy are able to take the govt to judge.

How long will the punishment last for his victims? A lifetime. One would assume he's having a lifetime of therapy to work out his "issues" that caused his behavior in the first place. If I was a member of that church, to get that job, it would be mandatory. None of that takes away from the fact that abuse changes who we are when it happens. We become different people than the people we were meant to be.
I am glad to hear you had trouble deciding whether or not to run the story. My opinion of you went up ten fold.
Hey, I am gonna give my homestate (Arizona) the middle finger and will be moving to Colorado where voters voted to legalise cannabis for everyone over 21 years of age. It is a no-brainer, F%&* Off Arizona!, I am going to Colorado. Arizona, and Joe Arpaio, can eat shit!!
Mr. Gibson, I can understand your "mixed emotions" certainly with regard to the concept that Christians should be forgiving and that punishment shouldn't necessarily be forever.
But before someone can be forgiven, especially for something as horrible as the rape of multiple children, shouldn't they take actions to take responsibility for their actions, beyond just serving time in prison? As the main article on this topic notes, Mr. Holtan apparently did not even inform Church leaders that he served jail time, instead whitewashing his own crimes as "inappropriate relationships" that resulted in probation. The reality of the situation is that he was a person of authority who took advantage of multiple young teens, who is back in another position of authority. I can assure you that he has left his victims with emotional scars that will take far more than 15 years to heal, and while he apparently wants people to move on, he doesn't seem to be interested in taking responsibility. Without that, there certainly can not, and should not, be forgiveness.
The difference between a 22 year old dating an 18 year old, and a 29 year old teacher having sex with multiple 15 year old students couldn't be farther apart.
Mr. Nivek, if you're unable to see or at least acknowledge the gargantuan corporatist streak in the GOP, which has utterly co-opted the Tea Party, your comment only serves to underscore the truth of what I said in my post above. Your partisan myopia is a hindrance, not a help; you would do well to stop viewing things in terms of conservative vs. liberal and focus instead on right vs. wrong.
