I've been trying to enter, but I can't find the banner in the app. Can you direct me to it?
"Ghoti" for fish has survived for a long time as an example of the quirks and idiocy of English spelling. Unfortunatly (sic) it is not a good analogy. No English word starts with sounding /f/. And the only word I can think of that ends in is Pacific island Kiribati, and there is sounds /s/.
I agree from experience that much time is wasted teaching spelling, a tool subject we ar besotted over, presumably because it givs us so much unnecessary trouble.
This could only come from somebody that lacks phonetical training. The words are spelled just fine.
Next they'll change math to make it "blonder."
Come on you malcontents!
Great post Mike. I agree.
Al Tam, actually if you get passed all the catch words it is really just a local fast casual restaurant. Their prices are comparable to a Chipotle and their portions are bigger. They also have a lot more options. That location is actually a pretty good one. Chopstix's is at the same strip mall and they been there for years. Burger King is across the street and if people just paid a few extra dollars they would get a far better meal. That stretch needed a good Mexican themed place to eat and it is unfortunate more people do not go there..
I do agree with all their emphasis on vegan, and healthy options, they would do much better in an area of Tucson that people would appreciate them.
I know I will be donating to their cause. I hope their restaurant does stay open or at least their do buy a food truck. I will follow their burro all over this town...

Also, Sun Bones.
You need a writer that knows Tucson music.
Would love to make it but am boycotting foie gras serving restaurants because of the inhumane treatment of the ducks. Will be awaiting news of it not being on the menu.
Be sure they visit the Desert Museum to experience the tremendous ecological diversity that exists in the Sonoran Desert.
You can't beat Kitt Peak for astronomy, either. It's fairly local and world-class, west of us! Lot's of tours! And, we have incredible views on roads through our local mountains!

It's completely unethical to take DONATIONS for a charitable purpose and then divert them to another use. The governor better stay backed-down on this one. I have never in my life heard a citizen complain about their tax dollars being used to maintain a veteran's cemetery so there was no need to make that a budget cut. Gov. Ducey needs to hang out with some real people instead of always hobnobbing with corporate executives and their lobbyists.
Fer chrissakes, vegan, glooten-free, free-range avocados, Fair-Trade™ crema, locavore nopalitos and all that shit isn't going to sell at Ajo and Palo Verde. She needs to relocate to within fixed-gear bike range of where all the dopey foodies of "New Tucson" live and do their Yelping and Urbanspooning. Her food might actually be really good but who buys that sort of thing down there? Did Juvy get gentrified while I wasn't looking?
GuiseppeKnows, the funds that were going to be swept were from tax credit donations, and the donors were told the money was to be used to help 9/11 vets, not to maintain veterans cemeteries. I would say taking those funds would be balancing the budget on the backs of vets who can use the assistance, especially since the donors were told that was where their money would go.
As a VET....sorry....but I dont see that as being balanced on OUR backs.. Its part of EVERYONES budget....and VETS are NOT a protected class....nor should they be. We did not serve for FREEBIES.. or ACCOLADES....
My Experience with public schools vs Basis is that, My son used to go to public school in Stone Oak area, He got bored and started reading the books in the class room, Then I decided to put him to Basis. Even though he is at higher grade. He enjoys the school. I know they will have home work everyday and log school hours. I guess its very important to have strong foundation for the carrier.
I expect we will need to excuse them for taking some of the pictures from afar. I can't envision Tucson journalists hugging the border along the crest of the Tule Mountains, for example. And will the 197th mile be particularly interesting? How about the 196th?
In a nutshell, one big crock.
The first mis-step of many.
Once again I will ask my same question: why do the "likes" not show up on these comments?
Would love to see HB 2476 pass. God knows teenagers could use sex ed. It'll never pass though. Esp with "I hate all education" Ducey sitting in the catbird seat.
Looking at most of the rest, other than JTED funding, they just make me think I'll be glad when the legislature is back home.
I agree MJS .That's a good start. Tucson has so many diverse cultures.. The food trucks alone offer a fantastic look into Tucson's diversity.
Tucson is also a town of relocated refugees from all over the world.
The music and art scene is second to none compared to many cities across the contry.
Keep it midtown and downtown.
This is the Tucson I know and love.
