Re: “Free Nicoll: Bond Fundraiser Begins for Transgender Woman in All-Male Immigration Detention Center

She applied for asylum means she is abused and her life is in danger. She needs help and it is real.

Re: “Diane Douglas is Establishing a Committee to Review & Kill Unnecessary Regulations in Arizona's Education Code

You don't understand how 1,000 pages of regulations might create "unnecessary administrative expense?"

Re: “Diane Douglas is Establishing a Committee to Review & Kill Unnecessary Regulations in Arizona's Education Code

I don't know what unnecessary 'administration expenses' she is talking about. THe only ones that Ducey says are in the category are transportation, speech, counseling. All necessary and some are federally mandated.

Re: “No Surrender

Everyone who's against her research should have their names plastered everywhere. They seem comfortable hiding in anonymity.
Put a face on the bastards and keep it public.

Re: “Calexico

Great article Linda. I'm inclined to agree with Schumacher - Bullets & Rocks is one of the best things Burns has ever written. I'm so glad that this new album is so good. The last few have felt a bit bland to me but this one's an absolute doozy.

Re: “Danehy

Is it possible, Tom, that you could recognize a couple of truths:
First, state legislators honestly believe that what they are doing is best for the state.
(That would make your snippy sarcasms more difficult to write, though - easier to do it as you do.)
Second, that state legislators ask for campaign support from interests they genuinely believe in, and support their beliefs in their votes, not because they got a little campaign money.
(Would any Republican expect campaign support from the Teacher's Union or Planned Parenthood powers-that-control-the-purse strings or Tucson Weekly?)

Re: “Danehy

A fine description of the ruling party. How about writing about the valiant efforts of the minority party to stop all this stupid nonsense? By the way the "ruling party" is Republican - for people who don't really know what is going on up there.

Re: “Tucson Bike Share Program Getting Closer to Launching

Tesla should have built here. Poor leadership lost another one. We will have to bite the bullet and match incentives or we all work at Walmart.

Re: “UA Adjunct Join $15 Minimum Wage Fight; Rally Happening Wednesday

Hi David: the article cites graduate students. As in adults with excellent skill sets-- so much so that they are studying advanced degrees. They are making on average $16,000 a year. I can see how you may be confused since fast food workers and graduate students are supporting each other for a living wage. A LIVING WAGE. As in, not living in poverty despite working.

Ice Cold, corner of First Avenue and Limberlost. Best gelato I've had in a long, long time.

Re: “Tucson Bike Share Program Getting Closer to Launching

After seeing that Tesla is paying workers 25 dollars an hour at their plant in Reno, it is nice to see some good news.
These bikes are a success in San Diego and I hope they are here too.

Re: “Free Nicoll: Bond Fundraiser Begins for Transgender Woman in All-Male Immigration Detention Center

The fact that this transgender person has raised 1200 for illegally entering the United States TWICE and wants legal and special protections boggles the mind.

I just don't get it anymore. No one should be abused in prison. But only American citizens should be afforded legal remedies and protections.

Re: “Excessive Force or a Necessary Move? Marana Officer Hits Armed Suspect With Patrol Car

This is .02% of a cop car plowing into a known and dangerous suspect that I approve of the actions. I hope this does not begin a trend. What if the suspect had his back broken and was paralyzed? The tax-payer would have to pay for his medical treatment in prison. No loss of life though, refreshing.

Re: “A Reminder of Hillary Clinton's Stance on Central American Unaccompanied Minors; An Annoying But Unsurprising Response

This is a true, "third rail" political conundrum. There are really no right answers. None of the answers do not cost the tax payer money. Sad for the kids, but America first.

Re: “Where's the Best Ice Cream in Tucson?

There's no best ice cream in Tucson, I spent 3 years traveling the Country trying to find the absolute best ice cream place and the thing I learned is different days you need a different thing. Somedays you need Thrifty's Ice cream from Arizona Pizza Company, some days you need the ultra sweet, ultra rich flavors from the Hub. Some times you just was a scoop and a smile from Santa Barbara Ice Creamery and every now and then you want the fun feeling of Dipping Dots from the Fuzzywigs Candy Factory in Park Place Mall. Where ever you stop for Ice Cream in Tucson you're already a winner. P.S. Gelato needs it's own catagory next year.

Gibby's Ice Cream not only comes to you but also has a variety of candy in her Ice Cream Truck. Not to mention the hot ice cream lady!
