What a sad and lovely story, I wish I'd met them sooner. Btw, Doug Stanhope wrote both facebook posts from a whisky girl's page, Derrick gave him Amy's password and asked him to make the announcement after she died, which he did, then on Tuesday when told Derrick had shot himself he again used her page to announce his passing. RIP
I am so pleased to see Manzo Elementary receive well-deserved recognition for its innovative science program. I am saddened and appalled by the casual condemnation of the Barrio Hollywood neighborhood surrounding Manzo as being "crime-infested". I challenge Mr Alcaraz to provide evidence of this baseless assertion.
If you go to the Tucson Police website--http://cms3.tucsonaz.gov/police/stats--and check the city map for crimes reported in the past 30 days, you will find none in the interior of Barrio Hollywood, which is bordered by Speedway Boulevard, Grande Avenue, Saint Mary's Road and Silverbell Road. Then zoom out and check several other neighborhoods. You will see that Barrio Hollywood is far less burdened by crime than many other Tucson neighborhoods.
I have gotten to know and appreciate Barrio Hollywood as I have helped several social activists and environmentalists purchase homes here. I am in the process of purchasing a house in Barrio Hollywood for myself. Many fine families have called Barrio Hollywood home for generations. Mr Alcaraz's remark about crime unfairly stigmatizes a great neighborhood that has become even more attractive because of the marvelous programs at Manzo Elementary.
As a REALTOR, I am prohibited from making disparaging remarks about the crime rate of a neighborhood. Journalists should also avoid creating hurtful and inaccurate impressions about the places where people make their homes.
Thank you for an otherwise well-written article that highlights the outstanding work of some of Tucson's finest educators and students.
All this vacuous prattling and no support. Too funny.
I totally agree. For me personally, I would much rather have an Applebee's. We have only gone twice and probably won't go back as the service is really slow. We sat at the bar to order our food and the Bartender was so busy talking with people it took us 20 minutes to get served. The food was so-so and to us, it isn't worth the price.
Perhaps she should actually spend some time in Arizona and on the border in particular before she spouts off her opinions on immigration. (As I believe anyone, in Washington should be doing). Talk to someone other than the political talking heads and learn what people are really thinking about all of this--not always the same as what is being pushed and reported upon.
Celebrity and wealth and honor gained through cheating and lying and threatening have no good rewards, not to mention lawsuits: sued by sponsors, sued by insurance/promotion companies, sued by the US Govt. Lance, Lance, your name is mud on all the continents - slimy mud at that.
well that explains that reta!
Coco's Cafe's from Avoca NY is a mobile food truck that makes the most awesome food ever.... looking at their pictures makes me hungry www.facebook.com/cocoscafes
Yup, that in-store show sounds just about right (smiling with fond memories) TR was a hang out in the early 90s for me & a favorite to purchase unique band apparel. I had no clue they were closing.... sigh...
Thanks TR for being a geat & unique for the open music minded. May your next venture be amazing as well.
In 2006, Kolbe was unopposed until Latas announced. It wasn't until after Kolbe decided not to run that Grijalva recruited Giffords.
The thing that is laughable is people like you believing that people who are local to Tucson own World of Beer. Look above, the facts speak for themselves. ITS A CHAIN STORE so get that in your thick head.
actually it's the only thing I read in this paper. I love the writer's take on these offenders/offenses.
Just one of those circumstances where everything got screwed up on the upload. I'll fix it.
Great short holiday read! Nerdy with a side of humor
Sigh. My brothers really looked up to Lance when he was riding (before the scandal broke loose). My stepdad was a professional cyclist and my mother rode as well. He used to train on the Northeast side of Tucson where we all grew up. I clearly remember driving in our family's suburban down Old Soliders Trail and there he was...Lance Armstrong...
My brothers screamed outside the window to him, "Lance! Lance!"" and he held up his hand and gave my brothers (at that time age 10 and 13) a peace sign gesture. They were talking about it for weeks. It is a sad thing to think about a family such as ours, investing support on a athletic figure such as Lance Armstrong. We were on his side for a long time. Now, the latest comment came from my now 29 year old brother in regards to Lance, "What a jackass." Guess that peace sign wasn't quite enough.
I always thought Armstrong was creepy. I guess I don't need to see this movie.
Classic ?? I know you're kidding. Pulitzer Tommy sucked then as he sucks today. He was an irrelevant stooge in 1999. The only thing that's changed is today he's a bigger stooge and even less irrelevant. Classic? Give me a break. I assume you had to dig into Tommy's archives because he's taking a little time off. Now, that's CLASSIC. The useless bum is on vacation 365 days a year. Maybe while he's off he'll start work on his next column. A 2 part blockbuster on girls basketball with a few jabs at the Tea Party thrown in. Maybe he'll find a little space to remind us that his kids went to charter school. What a sad, sad person.
P.S. Signed up yet, Tommy ?
And a human being died.
Seems like legalization would get both Republican and Democrat support. Republicans can cash in on the growth ( I'm sure the cigarette companies are raring to go) and the Democrats would enjoy the product. Then we could drop the medicinal fig leaf.
