Re: “Arts District Downturn

It's Too bad, I had to seccumb to illness. I did howeever forgot in my seeminly named and aimed at attempt to quote, as always misunderstood or downplayed. What struck Me as just too funny is Tattos arent just for Sailors anf whores. It seems now 20015 I see nothing in Downtown. The Dinnerware lasted not a year I dont remember prices were rediculous. But the Downtown loop of the bis is Stoppig or Stopped, ther is so little intetest in Downtown. So The funny part is when exactly did We have a port or Sailors ealking on Congress. And to the other well I am told by many you would need to visit miracle mile-Oracle Rd. Area for whores not a tattoo shop there. Funny how closed minded People that claim to be cool and gutureistic thinkers planners act like yhere from Ozzie and Harriot or waiting for Beaver Cleaver to walk by, thT left with the 50's and so should your thinking. Arent you the hub of the hip and cool, you advertise stip clubs, yet misguote on a tricky way aim it all at me pointing to Me as villian. Now doesn't piles of newspPers and trash garbage line thode streets of Congress. When I was there I washed my sidewalk daily. Swept nonstop, since when do not Men look T women, of that were so
Not a person in Tucson would date , Marry or be Hans Wen look at men Newsflash!!!OMG imagine that. Gee since when is it unusual that Men look, I happen to hate oggleling
My word for perverts. Thats different than glancing at a cute attractive to you person. Of your single how does that correlate with the article or Tattoing. Most men in strip clubs dont have any tattoos. Food for thought. WhT YOU dont know is I. An accomplished Artist with a degree in Fine Art and a Silversmith. I didnt think it would make a bit of difference in your closed mindef 2001 Article on Hardvore Tattoo and yeah to the real art folkd at Fox for theor vomment. I want you all to know My Son Mile Ball sadly pasdef awsy a young Artist great kid,y son anf if You saw the skull with the tophat on My door, Mikey did that by hand, and I hope it is still there. I cannot do any Art any more. Hope temporary but as time goes by so it appears permantly a paralyasis of both jands I cant pick up a pint brush to do oils, much ledd anything else creative, I have lost My love, Art. Now say that Lady was not an Artist. You folks at Fox thanks for being open minded. Anf have you saw a Sailor on 4th Av? They thrive well, they know how to run a ship. All are welcome so guess what.AllCome it os jammed every day and nights it is packed with bars art tattoos and best of all shoppers people Eating ath the different Eateries, health food
Bookstores, everything for everyone. Thats why downtown is dead, so are the thinkers minds that run it, they have not had a freash idea in forever, with closed minds not hard to see why it is dead on Congress. And to the naysayers on Tattoos Dont Look!!! Next time you pretend doing an upbeat article on Something, do it! Not Murder their livelihood. Why I dont go to your publication for the cool things in town, I know what closed minds run the show and articles that slay people who advertise. How did that do for buisness, how many shops advertise now with you, i dare it wrote with a different spin, We could have people up in arms an upheaval if you will, of new cultures and buisnesses and shops with drive anf ambition. It is hard to run a buisness without the cultured so called artistic eclectic. Thats a wrap. Not a not a ghost town like Congress is Today
Helped did it, not so much. Thanks. Debi Schoenholtz, I want to thank the thousands that visited during the walks oh yeah they got tattoos!!!hate to break the news to you. and downtown Sat. Night. That was not crap it turned in to. People disappeared. When the real music dies where streets were closed off live bands everywhere people dancing buying having a blast nope said officials. So Tucson Downtown died.

Re: “Yet Another Rematch? Ron Barber Will Announce His 2016 Plans on Zona Politics on Sunday Morning

Some writers condemn any congressional candidate who supports military-connected legislation. Please remember that a major part of the congressional district IS military and also IS largely connected to military employment on the civilian side. It would be stupid to run an anti-military candidate.

I will not blame a woman for keeping a child conceived through rape if that is her choice. I would never allow the sperm inserter custody. He is not worthy of being called a donator.

While this may be newsworthy, the way it's reported seems more like gossip. Are there any real journalists left?

What happened to Gabby was tragic. It's also sad that most of the votes Barber got were sympathy votes.

After mistakes with a request for recognition (awards and decorations) to a WWII veteran now deceased, thank you Mr. Barber. Arizona needs support for veterans.

Re: “A Very Frightening Story From BASIS San Antonio

Actually, I live in Phoenix 116.18 miles away, so I have no way of knowing much about the lay of the land in Tucson, but the first Staff Pick at the top of the page is for the St. Francis in the Foothills Annual Rummage Sale at 4625 E River Road (sounds nice, possibly the nicest?) and I've a hunch that 4618 E is on the property somewhere, or in the middle of the street outside.

Re: “A Very Frightening Story From BASIS San Antonio

I just recently retired after three decades in Education, but I had never heard of Basis Schools until today when I became curious about the latest US News & World Report National rankings and found that 3 out of the top 10, and 2 out of the top 5 were AZ high schools. My area is History and Economics, not math, but that seems impossibly improbable to me. Total numbers of students, schools, teachers are laid out so that simple math can tell you a lot. It basically breaks down to about 800 students per school on average, which is only a little more than the attendance at Basis Schools. My school however, for the sake of the discussion, had 3.82 times that many attending. That's not a deal breaker if the teacher/student ratio is within normal ranges. A real problem comes up for the Basis Schools when you go to the # of full-time staff category because all it has is a big, N/A! Meaning I guess, Not Able to determine the most important ratio in all of Education. From what I found out today, their success STEMS from 2 teachers, 1 Learning + 1 Content, per classroom. There is more than likely a justifiable reason for the N/A, but we all know that it won't fly. My real concern though, and here's the rest of the story, which relates to the attendance figures for my school, as well as the probability of the Basis rankings, is what is known as the Golden Mean, Golden Ratio, or the Divine Proportion, 1 to 1.618, for which the retracement is .382. Very little happens outside the 61.8%-38.2% ratio, and people have known and acted on this divine principle for at least the last 500 years. Relevance and usefulness to the discussion? Look at the school's address, 382 5 E 2nd ST, 857 16, another statistical impossibility. Overall, about the same proportion as the number of 9th graders at the beginning and the number of seniors at the end (62% loss). Bottom line, Basis is overly hyped, hinkey, and hooked up, guaranteed.

Re: “UA President to Release Tuition & Fees Recommendation Tomorrow

I find it rather ironic UA tuition has increased 188 percent in the last ten years while article 11 section 6 of the Arizona State Constitution clearly states " The university and all other state educational institutions shall be open to students of both sexes, and the instruction furnished shall be as nearly free as possible".

$10,000.00 tuition and 188 percent increase over ten years isn't exactly constitutional is it?

You're a pathetic hump, AZPaul. Like his politics or not, Barber served this country. You just seem to hate it.

Re: “Yet Another Rematch? Ron Barber Will Announce His 2016 Plans on Zona Politics on Sunday Morning

Democrats have grown very lazy in this state with regard to campaigning. They no longer run primaries. Who on their "bench" has experience running a tough campaign? Very few, if any. I'd like to see a McSally/Barber rematch. When she beats him a second time she will have cemented herself into the position with few likely contenders on the horizon.

Re: “Yet Another Rematch? Ron Barber Will Announce His 2016 Plans on Zona Politics on Sunday Morning

I would like a different alternative. I don't like Barber's politics and won't vote for him in the future. But I don't like McSally's politics either and won't vote for her. They are both much too militaristic and conservative for me. If anyone from the local Democratic Party or the local Green Party or any other party is listening -- how about offering a real choice for an Independent voter? I'm tired of having to choose between right-wing Republican and Republican-Lite (aka AZ Democratic party). I want our governments at every level to stop putting money into more and more wars and prisons and start putting money into infrastructure, education, and sustainable, renewable energy.
