I have never heard about this until my granddaughter was at the school assembly and was asked to come on stage where they announced her story was chosen. I'm so proud of her but the family will be in CA,and unable to see it and with my disability it'll be hard to get there. We are looking to find out if it hopefully gets filmed? It would be a great idea to have it filmed where the students in the various schools and libraries and other institutions could learn more about the Magic Box. I am personally sending out the information I have found here and bbroadening people's knowledge of your group. I think that you are doing a wonderful thing and more people need to know that.
Tucson just looks 238, we are 239 today!
We haven't been doing a "Pick of the Week" lately, just multiple picks. I'll fix the nav bar.
Seriously, why does this page continue to show up in the menu and has obviously not been updated since May 31? Even your staff does not read your publication.
This looks like a very worthy event. But where are the other "PICKS"… this event was held last week.
This gal helps sponsors very well organized and fun activities. My Irish grandmother would so have approved!
Local authors will also have books on hand-- including my nonfiction collection of biographies of Welshmen who influenced Southern Arizona:
Awesome! My daughter is getting just more and more famous
Great event. Come!
Tiffany: We ran a separate blurb Viva La Local: http://www.tucsonweekly.com/tucson/eat-dri…
I think Viva La Local Food Fest is worth mentioning for Sunday: http://www.vivalalocalfoodfest.com/
We have shuttered schools, move um in, put them to work cleaning the streets, showers in the gyms, lockers, cafeteria. Problem solved.
I read that they are going to dump the candles, teddy bears, flowers and notes etc in the old Pima County Courthouse. It will be a permanent exhibit!
I thought the Pima County Courthouse will be a function of the Tucson Museum of Art? (correct me if I am wrong). Why would we give up important floor space for a permanent exhibit like this? Why there. Guess Safeway does not want it on their property. It has become a dumping ground.
Why not a statue to the victims. Not a pile of candles and notes.
Sounds like a neat event, but my couch costs a lot less than $40. The cost is enough to make sure my friend and I find other plans for Saturday, unfortunately.
"... just being mildly annoying and trollish. Get over yourself a bit."
It's like you're inside my head reading how I am feeling about your return commentary.
I promise, I am finally done with this for good. If you feel compelled to add an additional comment than you can waste your time doing so, but I shall not respond. I have learned that when you make inconsiderate comments, such as the one I pointed out in this article and others I have read from you in the past, I will just keep my fingers off the keyboard. I never would have imagined anything would've been taken this far over what you have insisted is a "hyperbole."
Coincidentally, I am now preparing to get myself over to TMY. Who knows, maybe we'll run into each other. I (sort of) know what you look like from your commentary photos and I wouldn't hesitate to actually introduce myself to you. Just because you make an inconsiderate comment and take major offense to it when it's pointed out to you doesn't necessarily mean you're all bad. Hell, I actually respect you in certain ways, like the Tour de Tucson thing you are making an effort to participate in. Credit where credit is due.
Do tell, anonymous commenter, what is my "lifestyle" like? Tell me about my "circle." I'd love to have more information about my own day-to-day existence, since you seem to know so much about it. I did make a mistake in thinking you were part of a class of people you were strangely offended on behalf of, but seriously, you might want to lay off on declaring a class war on me.
I'm not going to ban you. I think I've banned a whopping three people in my time here and none of those people earned that honor by just being mildly annoying and trollish. Get over yourself a bit.
"I mean, you felt the need to comment on a post about an event you claim to enjoy because you didn't like a style choice I made? Doesn't that seem odd to you?"
No, what seems odd to me is the fact that you misinterpret a lot of what I say. I didn't say anything about enjoying or not enjoying the event, I pointed out a simple fact that I'm pretty sure you overlooked because of your lifestyle. Certain people have to work hard on these days and you excuse it by saying "It was a bit of hyperbole, pal..."; well, nothing personal, but it makes you come across as if you have no regard for those outside your circle. Then you assumed that I work the same hours as those I mentioned, which I do not and that's why I felt the need to inform you of that.
Hell, if you really don't like what I have to say and I'm misinterpreting (nearly) everything you write, go ahead and ban me from commenting. It really wouldn't phase me at all. But to ban someone who is not hostile about simple disagreements with certain things you post wouldn't make you look all to reasonable. Personally, I agree with or ignore most of what you do post, and sorry, but I couldn't come up with statistics without wasting precious spare time so I do not feel the need to reply about my commenting history or anything.
A heads-up: When I said "shitting on (nearly) everything," that was hyperbole as well. No need to reply with statistics about your commenting history or anything.
AZ/DC: All I have to go by are the volume and tone of your anonymous rants. If spending your spare time shitting on (nearly) everything I write is working for you, so be it, but it strikes me as a little joyless. If that's just a persona built for the internet, even stranger.
I mean, you felt the need to comment on a post about an event you claim to enjoy because you didn't like a style choice I made? Doesn't that seem odd to you?
Wow Dan, your suspicions are WAY off, I am far from being joyless. Just because I do not see things as you do doesn't mean I lack joy. Also, not that it's any of your business, but I'll tell you anyway, my work schedule does not usually involve working anything over 10 hours per day and I do not work on Saturdays, Sundays or Mondays. I myself will be at TMY like I have been for the last several years with my loving family and a couple of friends who know me worlds better than your joyless assuming personality ever could. Your backlashing makes me think that you are the joyless one. Nothing personal.
